The Velvet Café

A room for thoughts about movies

A note from the management

with 19 comments


OK, I’m not blond. My boobs are light years from the size of those on the picture and judging from the forecast I doubt that the weather will inspire me to throw myself into the famous fountain. But this week I’ve got one thing in common with Anita Ekberg, apart from being a Swede: I’m going to Rome.

This means that my web presence will dwindle. While there will be an occasional, pre-published post, I won’t be around commenting or answering to comments. Possibly I might tweet a little something once in a while, but don’t count on it.

However I’m leaving the door open, so just grab whatever you like to drink, have a seat and chat to each other.

I’ll be back!

  2. Have fun in Rome! Maybe you can return with perspectives on the way they watch movies (if it is any different).

    • Hm. I really love watching movies in foreign countries, but I’ve always thought they had the nasty habit of dubbing everything so I ruled it out. If I’m able to find something with original English sound I might pop into a theatre. We’ll see.

  3. Have fun. Hope you get to see the Trevi Fountain and Cinecetta Studios.

    • Cincenetta Studios! I just checked out their website on your recommendation. It seems like a place I should visit. I’ll see if I can pursuade my daughter to go for it. Thanks!

  4. Can I have the little milk jug shaped like cow and moo’s everytime you use it? I can’t find one of them anywhere. I’ll return it when you get back. 😉

    Enjoy your trip Jessica!

  7. I’m sure you’ll have a great time with your daughter! Drink a couple of proseccos for me…

    • Hm. I have to admit that I missed out on the proseccos. But the cappucinos I had were the best I’ve ever tasted.

  8. Have a great time over there, Jess (of course you will, duh, it’s friggin Rome). We’ll miss you!

  9. Mmmm Anita Ekberg…

    Wait, what we you saying? Oh, Rome – That should be a ton of fun! Have a good time, look forward to reading about your trip when you come back! I’ll look after Anita while you’re gone.

    • I’ve just come back and I had a ton of fun! Not sure I’ll write a post about it. But maybe I should… I visited the Cinecitta studio!
