American Music

The girl two seats down from me in the computer lab turns on various computers and starts playing music on them. Yesterday she turned on the computer next to me, started playing Spanish love songs, and moved to another computer. Today she is hooked on bad rap. I can't tell if it's American or not, although I do recognize certain words that, if others could recognize these words, might not go over well in this, the University's public Mac lab.

Or maybe they would. Italy is a strange place.


Update: Friendly computer ragazzo just asked if someone had possibly printed a "guida di Mac"--a good 18 pages--on the University's laser printer. He looked straight at me. I shook my head "no" and was tempted to point at bad-rap girl, but he dropped the issue before I had a chance.

We are "straniere" and proud of it.
