I am moving but....

I won't have Internet/home phone for 12-14 business days. My landlord called Telecom Italia for me which was nice since my Italian is beyond trifling. A nice lady named Chiara, who speaks English, is calling me from Telecom to get all my information.

See, I can't even talk smack about Telecom Italia taking two weeks to hook up a telephone line since the mofos at AT&T have totally disrupted my life (see my last post).

Okay I have already moved two pieces of luggage from G.'s place only four to go. ha.

G. might be going out of town this weekend (as are most of my friends here). He said I could keep the keys and come over to use the Internet. phew.

Hurray! You must be so relieved to be moving in. Have a good, relaxing long weekend.

How exciting. I love that feeling of entering a new empty place and awaiting the possibilities.

Which holiday? I looked on my Italian calendar, no bank holiday listed, so maybe May Day. I can remember celebrating May Day in San Francisco as a kid, but when we moved to the Central Valley, nada. Probably considered a labor and therefore, leftist holiday here. I'm glad you're getting to move in and even more glad G. is going to let you use his apartment to post? Gad, 2 weeks without an update... we'd be in "living vicariously through you" withdrawal!

12-14 days is not so bad. You are lucky to be in Rome where things get done a bit quicker, here, in the sticks, it can take months not days.

The apartment sounds gorgeous, just wait you'll sound be smoking up a storm and eating twice with the best of them :) Ciao Amanda

I agree with homebody. I need your updates! Did your stuff get resolved with ATT? This is why I have Verizon DSL.

How exciting to be getting into the apartment. It also sounds like your landlady is a gem. And so is G!

Joanne - mere words cannot describe how happy I am to finally be in my apartment after four weeks of suitcase living.

glamah16 - yes it is exciting...now all I need is the internet. ha.

texas espresso - it is a bridge weekend. The tourists are here but most the locals are gone.

homebody - yes it is May Day. It's a national holiday here. Almost everything is closed expect for the touristy restaurants.

amanda - I hope I will be eating twice soon (haha) but not sure about that smoking thing.

gibber - no nothing is resolved with at&t and they haven't replied to my latest email. Before I was with sbc and they were bought out by at&t. Which is weird because wasn't MaBell broken up because of anti-trust laws, so how can they be buying the baby bells back? Anyway it's all a big pain in the butt.

jen - yes that is true about both of them.

che fastidioso at & t!! penso che loro debbano pagare uno stipendio per averti fatto aspettare. magari se fosse cosi'. :-D
per l'altro. sembra che tutto vada bene per te.
non vedo l'ora di vedere le foto del tuo appartamento!


un bacio enorme!
