The Weekend

[14th - 15th October 2006]

Marta arrived on Friday night, quite late as it was past eleven in the evening. I went to pick her up with my new car, and we went to this sort of American bar, where she could have something to eat, and we drank a couple of beers (rigorously Guinness for me).
Then it was bedtime.

On Saturday we went to IKEA for a spot of shopping there, one week ago Marta bought a sofa but wasn't able to find the cover for it, as for me I had to start looking for a bookshelf, a table for my computer, some chairs.

After the furniture business, we went to this other shopping mall to do yet more shopping, Marta had to buy a new watch and she also found a nice red dress from Zara, as for me I went looking for some ankle bandages for my football efforts, but I found none.

By the time we were back home it was quite late, but we managed to organize a great dinner with Federico and Gianfranco at the Indian restaurant close to my house, and a movie in the evening.
The movie of choice was “The Devil wears Prada”, which I loved completely. It IS exactly (well more or less) the same situations that I live in my work every day, it was quite accurate in its descriptions and I loved the acting.

On Sunday nothing special to report, Marta went away around 2 ish in the afternoon, and I went to see Fiorentina winning against Empoli. Then I came back home to see that my mum managed to plug the USB adaptor of the ADLS modem, ON THE OTHER WAY ROUND, effectively destroying her machine.
I didn't wanna know how she managed to do such a thing so I left her to her woes.
In the evening a nice frozen pizza and now some computing, maybe I'll call someone to go out, maybe I'll stay at home...

I have a strange sense of uneasiness, I can't really put my finger on the cause, but I don't like it... Let's hope that the next week will bring some good news on the house front, I really need to start that part of my life too, only then I will be 100% flying solo...

Let's hope I'll be able to “fly casual”!

You left her to her woes ?! Ungrateful son !
I can imagine your face when assessing the damage, saying wearily and almost with desperation in your voice :
Mama ! Ma cosa hai fatto ancora ?! Per piacere, la prossima volta, lasciami fare !!!
(Moooooom ! What the heck have you done ?! Please, next time, let me do it !)

No, to be honest I was just pisse doff because it seems that everything that happens to that computer is my responsibility. It's a typical behaviour that I cannot stand and that is also part of the reason why I want to go away from here as soon as possible...

Ah, Lox! Your sense of unease is because of your attitude to your mama's computer problem.
Of course it is your fault! You should have been there to set up mama's computer - not out drinking guinness with a beautiful lady.
Sons are SOOO selfish! (grin)
