Ok, I’m back to my English language blog. I would like to use it to improve my English, but it’s difficult to maintain one Italian blog (, and a tumblr (, so, another one and in another language… Hm… I’ll try…

Falling in love with Twitter

Filed under: miscellaneous,twitter — storiedime @ 11:45

I’m becoming addicted.

If you, that are reading this post, have twitter too, please, put it in the comments or sent to my mail 🙂

For the moment, I’m Twitting in Italian, but, if someone will leave here is twitter sign, I’ll try to post in English…

Too much to do…

Filed under: miscellaneous — storiedime @ 11:00

…in so a little time.

Here in my office there’s an awful mess. Peraphs it would be a little better after January, 30th. But now… Ohw… 😦

And tomorrow I’ve to go to Verona (Giuletta and Romeo city) for work, and it seems that in Northern Italy will snow. Here in Rome we have 12C degrees, so I don’t want to think at the difference…

The discovery of the day…

Filed under: advice,miscellaneous,organize,utility — storiedime @ 8:28

I’d never heard before of “maildrop” services. In Italy we have the POBox system only, but it’s quite expensive and Post Offices require lot of time in line to take your post.

Now, I have a “little problem”: I haven’t any “smailmail” address. I’m still resident in my birthtown, Turin, but I live in Rome, and now I have a new address without the possibility to change the name on the entry phone.

I absolutely LOVE magazines, and I have the opportunity to subscribe in a cheap way to a lot of them. But where may I ask to send them ?

Google helped me, and I discovered the wonderful word (?) of the private POBox ! The Maildrops ! Great !

I’ve found the remailing services nearest to me, I’ve contacted them and… now I have only to pay the magazines subscription 🙂 Great service !!!

Maybe you can find my surprise funny, but not everywhere the maildrop system is so diffused.

Only for information

A wonderful Gmail tip !

Filed under: miscellaneous,tool — storiedime @ 16:37

Need to write a Gmail message in a while ? Have you installed the Google toolbar ? OK, so…

This is the right way ! Great !

New experiences

Filed under: miscellaneous — storiedime @ 16:23

Ok, may seem stupid for lot of people, but today, for the first time in 6 years (and a half), I came to work by metro.

I can’t spend 3 hours a day blocked in traffic jam on the “Rome ring” (the “Grande Raccordo Anulare”), I feel so stupid doing it. So I’ve decided and I’m trying. I have to drive for 7Km to the Metro terminal, then 15 metro stops, change metro line, 7 other metro stop, and then stairs and a little hill to climb (well, not so high). But it’s better than the awful Rome traffic jam.

I can also read. Today my first commuting-companion was Isabel Allende, with her last book (“Ines anima mia”, the Italian title). So nice having time to read again !!!

IMHO this is great ! Only one super-mega-government site.

Here in Italy we have lots of different public administration sites, everyone different from the other. When the Government changes, every site changes. Awful, and expensive.

And again…

So sad

Filed under: miscellaneous — storiedime @ 16:18

Ok, I don’t like New Year’s resolution. But discovering that the most voted one is “to lose weight” let me feel so sad…

It arrives before “Get a new job, freelance more or start a new business” (the same I voted) and “Run a marathon/5k/10k/triathlon or get better at a certain sport.”

Well, it’s better discovering that the second is a non-resolution: “I don’t make New Year’s resolutions”. Better that than “lose weight”. Oh my God… Weight ? Is that the Problem ? Is everything else OK in your life ? Have you time to spend with your children ? Have you enough money to live in a good way ? Ok, so, I wish you to lose weight…

New year’s resolutions

Filed under: family,funny,miscellaneous,thoughts — storiedime @ 11:01

I hate New Year resolutions. They are useful only for making you feel frustrated at the end of the year.

But this time I have some projects. I’d like to buy an house. Here in Rome is VERY expensive. So it’s a really high goal for me. But… I’ll try.

Maybe I’ll find useful these “11 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Complete any Task in New Year“…

Well, in that post I think that the better part is the caption of the image… let’s read:

Please, help me decide…

Filed under: funny,miscellaneous,strange things — storiedime @ 17:04

I’m quite convinced, I’ll have my first tattoo (at 36 years old… wow…).

I’m not sure about the subject.

I was looking for a Mother Earth Celtic symbol but I can’t find something affordable for my skin (ouch…). So, these are the two alternatives:
1. (the right-side one)

What do you suggest me ?

Thank you in advance !

Oh, I have put the same post on my Italian blog, so I’m curious to compare the results…

A great test

Filed under: funny,miscellaneous,science,test — storiedime @ 11:56

From BBC, find out how your mind works. You’re most feminine or masculine… ?

My results are… fifty – fifty. I think that’s normal for a female engineer, isn’t it 😉 ?

These are my thest results… Gosh… I’m a  female with 2/3 of masculin brain

Wow ! Great idea !

Filed under: food,miscellaneous,news — storiedime @ 20:53

We have to import this idea in Italy, where dining out may be VERY expensive…

Some restaurants let customers pay what they can afford or what they think the meal is worth.

  • Widgetoko, lots of widgets
  • Growing up digital, an interesting study about how the web changes work, education and the way people learn
  • Wonderful ! The removable tattoo ink ! We’ve only to wait…
  • Sky can be so wonderful
  • The New Year resolution planner. Oh my God… For an Italian woman this sounds so… so… so too much organized… ! I have some resolutions, first of all changing my way of life and then (and most explensively) buying home. But I think that this form is quite unuseful for this kind of resolution. Also for all the others. IMHO
