January 10th 2007 ~ day 10

Recap:
I've been slacking lately... being lazy about getting stuff done. I've had a cough ever since January 1st, and although I'm doing something about it (ie, taking medication, as per doctor's orders) it doesn't seem to want to go away! I think it has a crush on my lungs!!!
But today I decided get some things taken care of.
My camera was dropped by a friend of mine, and the lense got all bent and wouldn't retract. It won't stay on and basically doesn't work.
So I decided it was about time to do something about it! I was able to find the closest Cannon assistance, which told me that if the repair cost is €90,00 or less, they'll go ahead and repair it without calling to check up first. If the cost is superior, they'll call so I can decide what to do about it.
I went ahead and left it with them and on my way home stopped off at an electronics store and asked about some new cameras. I was told that my model's modern equivalent is the Canon IXUS 55, priced at a mere €259!!! Then again, that's what mine cost me two years ago!

When I got home I wrote an email to my friend who so kindly offered to pay for the damages (that he caused!). He was very nice about it and told me that he'd rather buy me the new camera rather than get my old one fxed, as he too didn't trust repairs.

I have to say that in my bad luck (having my camera broken) I was lucky! Why, you ask? Well, I was lucky enough to have it broken by such a nice guy! He offered to repay it! Someone else could have just said "Ooops... sorry!!).

I'm still slacking in other departments though, seeing as I was supposed to have a dental appointment, but didn't feel like going!! I've spent most of november and december in his office; going again today just wasn't gonna happen!
I had ongoing "work" done that lasted well over a month. He finally finished it two appointments ago, but from what I can tell this guy is a prefectionist! (Which is a good thing, when it comes to fixing people's teeth... Lord knows how many Quacks like to pretend they're good, when they're not!). Today was sort of like a check-up. He wanted to go over his work, give me a clean (the third in three weeks...) and hopefully it was gonna be the end of that... but I wasn't up for it!
I still have this damn cough, and I wasn't about ready to have to sit still while trying damn hard not to cough in the dentist's face!
My dad says that the dentist likes me, so that's why he wanted to see me again today! It's not true though... my dentist and his whole staff (One father and two brothers) are friends of the family, so he's just being extra thorough with me. It's nice... I feel cared about!
Anyways, I basically called up his studio and said I'd go in on friday instead. I wanted to get a few other things done today and luckily I did!

That's the highlight of my day... but when I was out, I didn't have my sister's camera with me. (She doesn't know I'm "borrowing" it!!) so unfortunately there are no related pics to go with my errand/story, and seeing as I so desperately wanted an outdoors picture for today's post, you'll have to settle with a shot taken from my balcony.

old

I don't know how and where it can fit in with my day, but I took it, so it'll have to do!
It's kinda interesting, though, don't you think?

A nice friend you have indeed, I think someone else said it here: get the new one -paid by your lovely friend- and fix the old one so you'll get two.

And the part of you trying not to cough in the dentist face made me laugh :)

You're not alone with that cough. I have the remnants of one from a cold I contracted the week before Christmas.

It takes time, but it will go away.

Wow and Flutter says:

Good friends trump cameras anytime. Don't break the friendship just the camera.
Any PAS camera over 2-years should not be repaired unless it is covered by one of those way too expensive extended warranties.
Your dad is right by the way. My dentist doesn't want to see me any more than every six months for a cleaning. A new $700 crown is another thing altogether.
The faucet... well, it wants to be opened and used I think.

sunshinecity says:

... thanks!

... yeah it's begging to be used, for sure!
As for the dentist, the extensive work I've had included redoing a filling to tighten a gap between theeth, replacing an old cap (or crown maybe? Not sure on the term) and other minor bits n bobs...
I don't dig the dentist anyways... he's too skinny! LOL

... want to know the funny thing?? I can't say we're "good" friends. We've known each other since middle school... we were in the same class from the ages 12-14, and have seen each other every so often during the years, but I only really ever see him like maybe 2-3 times a year. We're very different... and don't "nkow" much about each other's lives anymore... but I saw him again at the Club, the night I organised the soireé for my fiance to DJ at. (Check out the flyer here).
So I can't call him a good friend, but he's a great person and good hearted!

Yes, it is interesting! Glad to hear the camera snafu worked out! When I broke my macro (in HS when I was still using film) lens I freaked out and quit taking pictures for a month! I couldn't afford to replace it and couldn't find a cheap used one. You're a trucker for keep keeping on.

Gee so much has happened since I was here last. Talk about TV versus Compies (the internet is just really bad TV with a gojillion channels), favorite video games (my favorites are from the eighties and they still run on my mac), dropping Canons (I dropped mine today--while trying to aim it on my new gorillapod, I pushed the release button and down it went, right on to a couch, then bouncing to the deep pile carpet--it's okay), and you even asked me a question about procrastination (Can I get back to you on that later?).

The other, I haven't quit and am trying desperately not to stay up all night on the 16th in order to be online for the Burning Crusade release.

For those who don't play WoW, that makes little sense.

re: January 10th

Now THAT is a garden hose. =)

You have a delightful way of thinking about things. "Maybe the cough has a crush on my lungs." It makes me smile.

We all tend to slack. Just don't let it go on forever. Or do let it go on forever, just make sure to keep sending us nice pictures.

Smart people do as SamRag says - and I believe Sunshinecity has just done that. Soooo you will end up with two after all!
And that is why broken camera will never break real friendship (because real friends will pay for stuff they break)

Loved reading your diary... but this is taken soooo much of my time... I'm hooked on other peoples daily life.... aarrrggghhhh.
Now I will wonder all day when Sunshinecity is going to go to the dentist.

A few years ago, I seriously considered giving up my house and yard for something without the yard.

I finally just hired someone to mow the lawn and tend to the rest of it. It was worth it. The neighborhood is too nice to leave.

day 11 ~ January 11th 2007

Following my good deeds from yesterday, today I continued through the items listed on my to do list.
Today's errand was "The Bank". Dealing with banks here in Italy is rarely a pleasureable experience. The tellers behind the counter often make you feel as if they're doing you a favour in serving you, rather than actually doing what they're paid to do, assist you.
Bank company policies are terrible, often making the client feel "alone" and always in the wrong. Customer satisfaction is optional... basically when you need to go to the bank, you have to be mentally prepared for it... you have to psych yourself up and find all the "feelgood" vibes deep inside you and concentrate hard to keep smiling, through those grinding teeth!

I had to go fix a number of things... first of all, my online banking system was telling me that only a certain amount of purchases had been debited to my account, while my balance showed different. I hadn't forseen that certain expenses would be billed to me, and they had.
A while back I had my wallet stollen and in it was my credit card. When I got my new one, they idiots who take care of the online banking system never added the new card to my online account, therefore I was unable to keep track of my monthly purchases etc... (I often make many online purchases, therefore have no receipts... I forget to print them out!)
I also have a phone banking system, but need a user ID and PIN to access it. When they stole my wallet, in it was that information to access the phone system... so I was now unable to call them!
Then, because I had forgotten about some purchases I made, my bank balance went in the negative and (only by a tiny bit...) and they blocked my credit card! I am not even able to use the ATM even for just checking my balance or print out a statement!!!
So all these issues.... and a very frustrated sunshinecity!

I went to speak to the Home Banker who understood my frustation and was sorry for not having my recent card changes applied to my online banking... BUT was unable to fix it, as the bank was out of codes!!!! (Basically when you sign up for these online or phone services, they automatically give you user ID and PIN then and there on the spot, in sealed envelopes, but they had ran out of them, and would only have new ones in about 10 days or so!!)
How unorganised can you get??? Then we wonder why Italy is economically behind!!!
I wasn't even able to phone up my branch, as they've recently moved locations, and in the letter they sent out to inform their clients (which arrived only 2 days before their move!) they forgot to put their new phone number on it!!! Can you believe that??!!?
As Samrag would say....aaarrrrgghhhhhhh!!!!

The Home Banker was kind enough to reactivate my credit card, as policy would have it that they take it off my hands! : (
She felt bad.... as most of this (besides the too much spending)is their fault anyways!

...And then I give the Guru a hard time for making long posts!!!
= P

-------------------------------------------------------------

And now for something completely different....
I'd promised myself to use photoshop on some of my daily submissions, so today's picture has been dramatically treated accordingly!

We had a long visit to the bank today also. I think Greek banks must be similar to Italian banks - some of their systems are archaic. I also had a wallet pickpocketed in December, and replacing all the credit cards and bank cards, and switching debit order payments has taken forever.

.. damn, that sure is a sexy signature!!!

.. Hahaha, you mean the actual tap??? Ehh.. I guess it's old school, dunno.... this appartment complex was built end of the '60s I believe, maybe early '70s. But its neat huh?
I know I could have tweaked the pic a bit, play with contrast, saturation, blah blah... I got "complaints" from the picky ppl on flickr about it... but deal with it folks!... sometimes things are pretty the way they are! I promise you those are the real colours, to the bare naked human eye!!

I have almost all read: Michael and $ ( you seem more younger in that photo than inyour self portrait, isn't it) - the broken camera - the cough and the nebulizer - the new screen. Then I lose the concentration and on the garden and the famous Italian banks (moreover I have the same bank) I will read tomorrow.

A curiosity: to reproduce the buddies and to make the calendar how is it necessary to make?

I love macro photography... Not really delved into it much on my slr, mainly because of all the extra closeup lenses and so on. However, my ixus can focus 3cm away + digi zoom. Have a looky here: www.flickr.com/photos/kekett/40794662/in/set-721575944358... I'm sure i'll be posting a few on here soon enough!

As for the scripts, did you see the quick comment feature??? I got it off Allan's stream... as he quotes: "For anyone looking for an easy way to append a link to your diary to your comments in other people's diaries, check out this Firefox Greasemonkey script".

If you install it, be sure to follow his directions posted in that discussion thread to modify it to work here.
Ask me if you need help....

January 12th 2007 ~ day 12

I really have to say I'm getting stuff done!! Today was another very productive day!
It started off in my Dad's study... yes!! We had a guest over and she stayed in my room last night, so I slept in the study... my back is sore, form the shitty fold-away bed now!

Anyways, first errand of the day, another stop at the bank, but only for a quick deposit... no need to have issues of any sort today!!!
My next planned stop was going to be the dentist... as I had postponed it from wednesday, but seeing as I got done at the bank sooner than I had thought, I had some extra time on my hands. So I decided to go back to the Canon assistance and get my camera back, seeing as I'm not going to have it repaired.. (well, not for now anyways... I'm just too broke!). Then, off to my dental appointment!
I confirmed with my Dentist Carlo that today was "the last episode", as I put it!! He said "yes, yes, you're free to go...!!" That was a relief!! Hopefully I won't have to see him any time soon... only means bad news for my teeth if I do!

Home in time for lunch, then surfed on flickr a bit, and stopped by my little MDPD friends and said hello.... then back out again to go to a job interview... which SUCKED!!!
Well, it didn't exactly suck itself, the interview was ok... it wasn't really much of an interview anyways.... more of a presentation of what the job entails. It's a "Call Center" as we Italians like to call these places.... basically the home base of Telemarketing Sales jobs, ya know?... blahhh.... yeah I know, gross!!!
Would you believe I have a master's degree in Comunications and can't find better??? Crazy!!!! I really need to get out of this country!!
Anyways... the pay was so ridiculous, I doubt I'll be calling them back!

I forgot to mention the "fun" part of the day... (NOT!)
On my way to the job interview, as I was going round in circles trying to find the street... (one person told me "go there..." and another person to go in the opposite direction... and when I'm only a corner away from the place, a third person tells me it's in totally the opposite direction!!!) my scooter decided to die on me! Well, poor thing, he was right too... I forgot to feed him today! He wanted his "milk" so badly and I forgot to stop at the gas station!! Bad bad sunshinecity for neglecting my poor scooter!! He's like my baby, ya know! I paid for him, I raised him!!! We've been together for hmm... about 8 years now!!! I still have the receipt from when I bought him!
I'll have to post a pic one of these days as a tribute!

Anyways, so I parked the scooter close by to the office and walked the rest fo the way. On the way back, I had to walk to find a "Bar" (what in english is concidered a Cafè), find some empty water bottles, and walk to the closest gas station... then I pushed my scooter for a bit of the way, as I didn't want to have to walk all the way back as well....
Wow, I was sweating like a pig in labour by the end of that push!!! When I reached a slight hill I gave up! I parked it again and made my way to the gas station...
To cut it short, I got my gas, fed the baby and drove home!!!

Today's pic....

pearly whites

A tribute to my dentist's work!

Hope you like the crop!

you are right : telemarketing centers suck, especially when they call you home, you run to catch the call, just in time to catch this unknown lady who try to sell you an insurance plan.

Master in communication, both Italian and english, good looking (fabulous mouth)..... What is going on in Roma ? People are blind......

I hope you'll find a great job asap.

This latest is a great story. What I know about Rome (well, modern Rome) I learned from 50's movies and my parents slide shows of their vacation (you didn't take kids along back in the day). So, this is cool, especially because you have the scooter.

About the photo: Your intended is out of country right now, if I have kept things straight. So, I imagine whenever he sees it, or your new icon, he has powerful fantasies involving a boarding pass.

bunaen: I resolve to eliminate all procrastination and regret from my life.

Okay, I think the question about whether your photo is erotic or not, has been resolved by an expert witness. I'll trust his judgment and just leave it at that.
