Cocktail "Katy Zei"

Being the slightly egotistical person I am, I decided to name (patent?) a cocktail after myself. It's one of the few ways of becoming immortal in this world. Therefore, with no further ado, I present the cocktail "Katy Zei", with the alternative (Italian) spelling "Chettizzei":

1/3 Campari (quello bitter in bottiglia, non l'aperitivo nella bottiglietta triangolare)
1/3 Prosecco (o spumante secco/dry spumante/prosecco or brut champagne, quello che hanno al bar, insomma)
1/3 Orange juice/Succo d'arancia (preferibilmente spremuta, cioe' "freshly squeezed" OJ)

Buonissimo! I did a quick and dirty search on Google and didn't find a name for this drink, therefore I have baptized it myself.

Campari--prosecco--succo d'arancia
Campari--prosecco--orange juice

Translation hell

The past few days have been entirely dedicated to the biggest translation job I've ever taken on. More than 50,000 words in about 10 days. It's not usually humanly possible, but fortunately I have lots of reference items and stuff. Two more days to go and I'm well on top of things. Starting to get carpal tunnel tho... must do something about that.

I'm also going to try to upload a little banner on this site, though nobody ever looks at it. Maybe I can start doing something serious with this space, who knows.

ciao ciao,

Hardcore historians

Ummm... really like to upload my essays so that people can copy and cite from them, but don't quite know how. I thought I could add attachments to posts. Guess not. Guess I have to copy and past the entire things in a single post....

This quiz makes me seem like a very zen person

You scored as Mystic. You are a Mystic. Practical magic isn't really your thing; you much prefer to take the inner roads to self-development and spiritual evolution. You find ecstasy in meditative silence and commune with the divine without aid of any church or religious leader to guide you. You will seek the light of heaven in your own way, even if that way is not apparent to the casual observer.
