Pia Knight is leaving the building

Pia Knight is leaving the building


After a year and a half, our favorite bloody blonde is leaving, and this is what she had to say:

Does it really feel like it's been a year and a half for you, and has it really hit you that you're leaving?
No, not at all, its a cliche but true. Time is very strange here the days drag on but the weeks fly by. I can't believe my time has come to be released. But i'm pleased that i'm leaving before Reed predicted in 2009. Shit it is hitting me now, i'm sat next to my boxes.

How do you feel about adjusting to civilization again?
Im sure i'll be a bit of a mess for a while for so many emotional reasons, but the answer is normally at the bottom of a glass for me so it should be ok. I've great friends at home who'll help me drown my sorrows. A small adjustment will be not saying ciao and double kissing. I'll sound like a pretentious cow doing that in London. But maybe i try and bring the two kisses rule back home with me, im sure after many many head buts and awkward moments my friends will learn that Italians do it better.

What exactly are your plans for after Fabrica?

Well, im incredibly lucky to have somehow blagged my way into the Royal Designers summer school. Yes i did say Royal Designers, not sure how but I did. After that, who knows what the future holds for me so long as I don't have to return to designing whore cards in London again i'll be happy! Oh yeah and i'm going to get fit, stop smoking for the 12th time and buy a new phone so I can text properly.

What was your favorite moment here?
Everything. I can't name just one you know me and how much I love everyone and everything. But ok to mention a few would have to be last weekend with my friends Jasmin, Scary Wendy and Jose. Unforgettable. Cosimo asking me if my 'teets' were clean, and every other hilarious language slip with him after that. Running from the police with Nat and all the times we woke up together laughing. Only ever speaking 'yonkerly' gibberish Irish with Pat and Alex. Fernando making love to a chair. Reed showing us how to drink up and deep throat at the same time. Constant ichatting with Mike. And everyday with Matt Prins.

Favorite things about living in italy?
Friends. My bike. Never being scared. Deep fried mozzarella balls. Wine. Summer. Pea day at Mensa. Capiscoing niente. Strange stalkers (it was a big compliment really, would never happen at home) Dancing to ipods. Eclectic dinner parties. Being incredibly tactile. And most recently tinned mushrooms.

Last words?
Never take life here seriously. Just have fun and don't worry about the consequences of living in a goldfish bowl, its more fun that way. You can always have therapy when you get out.

The mass exodus continues with Pia. It's a sad day in Fabrica, knowing it's Pia's last. It's raining, too. But maybe we're going to Enio for lunch. Anyway, we'll miss you, you royal piece.

I love you. How could you not? Point in case...


Posted by: Matt at 06.08.2007 04:42 PM

Never more with a girl with dirty teats and sweet blood. You are the only one. You'll always be.

Posted by: Cocco at 06.08.2007 05:31 PM

Dear Pia, after you no one will make me feel as Mastroianni in La Dolcevita: "Marcellooo..."!
Good luck!

Posted by: marcello at 06.08.2007 06:30 PM

Bye bye Pia!!!

Hello Everyone,
My wife was finally able to kick the habit before she got pregnant with our now first born beautiful baby gilr, so I tought I'll share the resource that she has used to help her quit the smoking habit with as many people as I can.
She was a heavy smoker for about ten years and just a couple of weeks after finding out about the program that I have researched online, she was able to quit smoking permanently and now can't stop telling people about how she had kicked the habit for good.
Anyway if somebody want to check it out the site is; http://endthehabitnow.com

Hello All,

I was reading around some of the posts here and I found interesting things that you guys talk about, I just made a blog about quitting smoking resources and ideas that you might want to check out.
If someone is interested in this topic just go to; http://endthehabitnow.blogspot.com and let me know what you think.
Thanks in advance.
