Hey Jissy, it's already planned - confirm you'll be in London over Christmas and New Year; we'll get together in a pub somewhere in your area, with my girls (they both live in Wandsworth, but i think you know that); we'll invite Simon too. Maybe Sunshine can make a flying visit to the Land of Her Birth?
sunshinecity 11 years ago

LOL

and stop giving me a hard time... *wink*
sunshinecity 11 years ago
Well...
Just to keep things interesting in here, I figured I'd give you guys an update...
I added some more pics to my photo stream. They're still photos from my vacation in Spain. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to add them... it's probably due to the fact that I only have these on my pc at work....
Anyways... here they are... it's still not all of them, but they were all taken on our last day in Spain before our departure on Aug. 121th.
This is Seville!

When I've uploaded all of them, then I'll choose my photo for the day and make a proper diary entry for the 11th.

Enjoy!

Hmmm, besides the city, I think of the oranges, and of course Dave when I hear the name "Seville". I know, the Dave reference is too obscure.

Sorry.

sunshinecity 11 years ago
We had the greatest cloud formations today.... a really funky cool sky... but I dunno... this whole not having MY own camera and stuff.. I dunno... it's getting me sort of out of place with the diary.
I just keep forgetting to take pictures... I'm not liking the compact they lent me.. Canons are sooooo much better LOL
I know, no excuse... I need to snap back into it.. somebody pinch me pls!

Either you completely missed Glory's randy remark, or you deftly dodged it! ;-)

I hope you check ebay for a cable before buying one retail--you can get 'em so cheap online.

And in a pinch (not Rob's pinches, anyway), you can email your photos to flickr right from your phone
sunshinecity 11 years ago
yes, if i had that plan with my phone lol...

As for Glory's eyebrow waggle.. I saw it and savoured it...
It was for ME!!! So shhhh!

So let's see...

I had Sky installed last night , well... the 2nd receiver with multi-vision and the ability to record directly from satellite.
Only prob is, the bleeding installed in in the wrong living room and for some reason my Dad was dumb enough to just stand there and let them do it.
So now I have to call them back and see if they can't return to move it into my room, as it was supposed to be.
GRRR!
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Woof!
Simon-K 11 years ago
That must be annoying! I think its pretty funny that your dad was watching them installing it and never realised :) Sounds like something my dad would do
sunshinecity 11 years ago
Hmm... not sure "realised" is the right word... if you asked me, he liked the idea to have the newer one that pauses and records live tv in the living room, and "stole" it from me lol
Simon-K 11 years ago
LOL - Can't blame him I guess I'd love to have Sky Plus!
Dragonhide 11 years ago
I have that at home.... It is AWESOME to be able to pause and record live tv... Before that I hardly ever watched TV, I cant stand following a schedule.

Now I watch TV sometimes instead of never... Is that progress? maybe not... TV steals your soul.

sunshinecity 11 years ago
So... get this...
The saga with me and my camera/photography/diary continues..

We went to a festival last night, and of course I brought my camera... (the camera that was lent to me).
We took a whole bunch of pictures, some i took, some my friends took.
When I went to look back on all the pictues taken, I noticed that the ones taken from the past few days were gone!!!!
WTF! Yeah, someone or somehow the pictures were deleted!!!!!

All the pics taken in the past week.... GRRRRR!!!
I am totally pissed off, damn this!
And on top of this, I HATE THIS DARN CAMERA lol
I miss my canon. Sure it was a simple compact camera, but it was a good one! I am so irate right now, makes me want to just throwe in the towel!!!

Okies.... I've vented. I dunno when the heck I'm going to be posting pics... whatever. Soon, I hope!
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
I feel robbed! No festival pics, no beach pics, no Sunshine pics, no Giulia, Marta! Someone give the girl a Canon and a USB cable, we are missing so much.
Dragonhide 11 years ago
Hey, do you have a scanner? or access to one at work maybe? Maybe you can draw funny faces and stuff and scan them in so you can post pictures..... It won't be the same, but it'd be something! :-)

Sorry Sunshine.. that really really is rotten luck! :(
sunshinecity 11 years ago
lol.... yeah really!
I am feeling robbed too!! Of my own enjoyment of taking pictures!!!
Man... just you give me time.. I'm coming back with a vengeance!

Let me get my new macbook (hopefully happening this week) and my new scooter and then I'm geting mysel a new camera too!
Oh and btw, if any onf you know of anyone who's selling their digital reflex camera let me know about it...

Thanks!

Yesssss! the mighty south african goddess herself... Jissy!!!
omg she's such a beauty and such a laugh!!!!!
She is awesome... I could have laughed with her all night long!!!!
And her hubby is adorable!! Yeah don't let him have too much white wine or else you'll see him crossing the crazy roman streets, careless of traffic, shouting profanities!!
JK....

they are a great couple, and I think I've fallen for Jissy's charm!
Hopefully she'll be posting pics soon...
Me... I dunno when... that's another story!
LOL
Stay tuned...

There is a group on ebay from HongKong...they are good, fast and less expensive than most EU internet sites. In some cases they are cheaper than usa prices. I don't want to post the name here as customs geeks might be lurking (sorry customs guys but there are some things you should not tax !) Have a look -

Today, our last day of vacation, was dedicated to visiting Seville. What a beautiful city!
Too bad were only there a few hours... the first part of it was spent packing, traveling and looking for a hotel room for our last night in Spain.

It truly is a beautiful city. I will definitely be returning in the future to see it in more detail.

See the rest here.
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Yay, Sunni's back. Very nice picture of beautiful architecture. Keep it up, girl.

CollardGreens PRO 11 years ago
Oh - from some time ago. You lost photos on a memory card? Probably not lost...just that the camera started a new folder on the card. Some will do that - so the display memory can walk through all the pics on the small screen. When you get the card reader going - have a look with a directory browser...just my 0.02€

CollardGreens: Oops!

Serves me right for letting other people touch the camera LOL

ok time to play catch up...

September 8th 2007 ~ day 247



Tonight a special cultural event takes place here in Rome called "La Notte Bianca" - which literally translates to The White Night.
Basically everything (stores, museums, theaters) is open until the small hours of the morning (3-6am). There are live concerts going on, you can visit newspaper headquarters, there are readings, live performances and art exhibitions... there are even special light installations.
It's a fun time and the city is really comes to life. It's an occasion for young and old to really live the city to its fullest, to experience Rome under a different light - the moonlight.

We first went to a Wild Boar (yes, they eat wild boar here... but don't worry, not me!) festival in Capalbio, located in the Tuscany region, (about 1.5 hrs drive) and then returned to Rome at about 2am. (Just so you know, Rome is in the Lazio region.

Once we got back to Rome, we met up with some other friends at Campo de' Fiori, a famous piazza that's really busy especially during the summer. We grabbed a few drinks and then ventured off into the city late night life.

We got to visit the Tempo's offices (sorry, site is in Italian) , an Italian newspaper . The view is amazing from there!

Afterwards we went to see some exhibit my friends help set up.
Then we ended our night/morning at the Gianicolo Hill, where there was a 6am concert. Considering it was 6am, it was pretty packed... it was great!

As you can see from the picture above, the sun was getting ready to rise. The view of the town center from up there is incredible... and I live only minutes away from there!
Lucky lucky me....

And I was considering moving where??!!?? @#%& that!
Hahahah
Simon-K 11 years ago
That sounds like such a cool night!! And that view is great!
sunshinecity 11 years ago
Thanks Simon... yeah it was really fun!
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
Sunni's back with a bang! This takes "night life" to a new level - imagine feasting on wild boar in Tuscany, heading back to Lazio to do some late-night sightseeing, then finishing off with a dawn concert and the whole city at your feet in the rising sun. What music were you listening to, if you can remember?

Very civilized, you Romans!
sunshinecity 11 years ago
Well funny enough, the music wasn't all that great.. in fact we decided to call it a night, erm or a day (ahahha) and split. Yeah, come 6,30 we were ready for

The concert was music and ritual dancing of the Dervisci Rotanti - also know as the Sufi Whirling, with scenes from the suggestive Mevlevi ceremony: the Dervishes circle dizzily to achieve divine ecstasy. The path described by the dancers symbolises the planets’ movement around the sun and each Dervish turns on his own axis and around the leader, Semazen, who represents the sun.

I met Jissy and Hubby today!!!!
We'd been messaging back and forth for the past week and today she finally arrived!

We met for drinks after work, downtown. Then we went to dinner in Trastevere, where we had a wonderful meal and shared some great laughs and conversation!
The wine was flowing (though I didn't drink) and after dinner the giggles were loud! We were having so much fun, I didn't want the night to end!

They are indeed a great couple, so cute together too! I am sooo happy to have met them... she's to die for!

You'll have to wait to see Jissy's photos too, they're much better and far more!

Ah, these are the pics I've been waiting for - my two favourite brunettes together (and hubby) - all smiles too (plus a wicked tongue)! So nice.
RobW_ PRO 11 years ago
So, how much wine did they drink (and why were you not helping)? Trastevere looks like such a nice place to go out in the evening - by tram, too!
Simon-K 11 years ago
Thats a great photo, the three of you look like you've known each other for years!
sunshinecity 11 years ago
Hahaha, thanks!
Well, like I mentioned some other time... I'm not big on wine, I just don't like it. They shared 1 bottle of white, but had previously had some beer at the pub, while waiting for me to arrive!
Hahah

It truly felt like it! They really made me feel at ease!

Why not?

OK time for some more catching up... sorry a few days are missing here and there.

September 15th 2007 ~ day 254



I woke up in Parma today... no, it wasn't a freak thing, I'm here for the week end visiting a friend.
He's off working today so I had the day to myself. I wandered round some...
There's the Palio going on this week end, so the town has it's medieval festival... it's so great to see everyone in typical medieval costume!

After spending time watching fun and games, I did some shopping (which I REALLY shouldn't be doing) and then came back home. It's gonna be a long night... my friend gets off at midnight, but it'll be worth the wait!
*cough*

Oooh, Parma ham, and Parmiggiano cheese, Lambrusco wine (but you don't etc. etc.). I love that little mediaeval child on the cobblestones; I'm going to visit the outtakes later when I'm in the house. I think you have a good life Sunni, and you have a Macbook too. I'm too busy to do anything about that, and I still have two laptops that work, so not the same urgency you had.
