...No, this isn't the opening riff from classic Zeppelin song, although, those guys did Rock! No, this is more along the lines of what happens when your computer falls spectacularly to pieces, and leaves you digitally stranded back in reality, with no outlet to vent!!! Sorry I have no friends here to whom I can vent, I do, but they don't understand a word I'm saying, and I'd rather not let them see the scary side of me, before they can completely comprehend what it is I'm ranting about!!!!
Evidentally some chip on my laptops compressor (for the cooling system) is busted, along with a few other electrical items, but that chip is supposedly darn near impossible to locate! Grrr...... Fortunately, we had my parents pick us up another laptop and bring to us when they came to visit last summer. It's been in Bucuresti with my brother in law since September or October I think, well, he was going to have to send it back to me anyway, so I could bring it to Marius in Italy, next week, did I mention I'M GOING TO ITALY IN 7 DAYS?!?! N-E-Way, back to my story, so BIL sent me 2nd laptop by bus this evening, and it's sad how much I've missed my digital friends!
On the upside my New Canon Rebel XS with 2 lennses came in last week, and God answered my prayer, I didn't have to pay any VAT on it. VAT=Value Added Tax, or Customs Fees. I seriously got the coolest customs agent ever. Makes me regret having called all the Postal Worker "Friggin' Communists" as I left the Post Office.... I blogged about that in a post entitled "God has taught me to hold my tongue", labeled under 'romania'.
Anyway, so I've been snapping photos like CRAZY I tell ya, learning all the bells and whistles, what an f/stop and apeture and metering are.....I'm still a little fuzzy, but I can take some decent photos. I'll upload some, when my internet connection decides to lay off the crack pipe! Seriously, been out of the loop for two weeks, and my internet connection is obviously on vacation, IN AMSTERDAM!!!! Sheesh! Can't a girl catch a break? Lately, I swear, everything that can go wrong, Has gone wrong, horribly wrong!
