Some Sweet Nothings

Ciao miei amici!


Have you heard?!? Petey is organizing a molto romantico (very romantic) evening of dinner and dancing this weekend at New York's famous Rainbow Room! Naturally, I'm a little biased, but if you ask me, nothing speaks of romance quite like speaking in Italian. So, for all of you amore uccelli (lovebirds) who'll be at the Rainbow Room this weekend, I'm offering a short course in how to say romantic things in Italian to your sweet little biscotti (cookies).

La Lingua d'Amore!
(The Language of Love!)

Mia cara (my dear)

Amore mio (my love)

Dolcezza! (Honey!)

Vuoi uscire con me? (Do you want to go out with me?)

Sei bellissima! (You're beautiful!)

Vuoi ballari? (Do you want to dance?)

Sei qui da solo? (Are you here alone?)

Sei cosi figa! (You are so gorgeous!)

Mi sono proprio divertita stasera (I had a great evening)

Mi ami? (Do you love me?)

I'm in love with you! (Sono innamorata di te!)

Of course, miei cari amici, sometimes uno romanticismo (a romance) is just not meant to be, alas! If that happens, here's what to say:

Mi dispiace, non sei il mio tipo (I'm sorry, you're not my type)

Non credo che stia funzionado fra noi due (I don't think it's working out between us)

Sigh ... amore!!

Tanti baci!

Lucia my little biscotti (my hu-momm just ate one of those)...
anyhow amore mio vuoi uscire conme?...this is theBUSTER, stealing the puter before the gurls come in from their sun bathing on the deck....i don't know if they would let a very young youngster in the rainbow room in N.Y..but hey, we can go slurp all sorts of dim sum in china-town and miss the crowd. vuoi ballari? by the way, how old are you???would your hu-mom let you go out older boy-dog? there's a hard rock cafe down the way or we can take in an art opening ...or... we can always go to the opera!!! and listen. heavy sigh.. sei bellissima!!

<---------lucia... Persephone here,
he is besotted...if you want to go to the rainbow room he would take you there too.. but he does like to explore...he's known as busterio vespucci..

anyhow back to Himself...
amore to you,

Faya said...

Oups I am too late....the Kerry were first....too bad....I am sad...
Kisses, Dyos

Persephone and Buster said...

uh...mia cara lucia .... uh.....uummm. theBUSTER here... again....
ummmm. if you would like to go to the dance.....i would love to take you.
Of course I would make sure (because of your age) that we had a chaperone -- Ms.Persephone agreed to do this..and if your hu-momm is not comfy with that.. well i can bring Ms.Blue <----- she is 9 and persephone and my momm..

Oops. we are late. The story of our sad wirey bachelor lives.

We were hoping we could persuade you to share a romantic moment or two with us -- but looks like there's already a long long line.

If you decide that none of those dawgs are your type, let us know. We'll be happy to share a laugh and a glass of bubbly with you -- and maybe a dance or two.

Love is in the air at Rocky Creek Farm. I know Piper and Lilly would be ecstatic to sneak away for a night.

Thanks for the lesson in La Lingua d'Amore.


Mason Dixie said...

Thank you so so much for the lesson I hope to use some of those with Alfie this weekend, and hope to hear some for me too. =)

Maggie and Mitch said...

We'll be supervising mom and dad lay the last of the chestnut floors in the guestroom this weekend! What a bummer that we have to miss the pawty but we'll remember all of the Italian that you taught us, Lucia! One day we'll be able to put it to good use!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Honey said...

Great Italian lesson! We'll start practicing.

Cheers! Honey

Lorenza said...

Hi, Lucia!
Thanks for the lesson! It is very interesting to learn another language!
Kisses and hugs

tula said...

hi lucia,

I will not be attending the Rainbow Room. However, your romantic sayings may come in handy soon. Can you add one more to your list? How do you saying, " you talkin' to me!" in italian.

May the romance be with you:)



Dennis the Vizsla said...

Vuoi ballari ... I can use that one at the studio! Although often just extending an open hand to a lady works too.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Mia Cara,
Sei belissima! I'll look for you at the dance!

ps-I'm the short one.

Petey said...

Ahh Lucia,

Not only were you a vision in violet blue, but your Italian lessons will come in VERY handy as I am whisking my Rosie-Posie away for a little "Roman Holiday" in April...although, she is a beagle, it may be more like "Roamin' Holiday."

Buona sera!

Your pal,

Petey (Piccolo Pietro)

Koobuss said...

Hi Lucia,

Thank You for the Italian lesson. I'm sure that all those phases will come in handy someday.

Koobuss Kisses,

Molly and Taffy said...

Hello Lucia

Thank you for the Italian lesson. It enabled me to whisper "sweet nothings" into my dear Stella's ear all night.


Tee said...

I'd like you let you know that I'm diligently practicing the italian you shared.

Thank you!
