“There’s no reality except the one contained within us. That’s why so many people live an unreal life. They take images outside them for reality and never allow the world within them to assert itself.”
– Herman Hesse

Ko ti odklopijo telefon…

Mobitel ne pozna šale. Posebno takrat, ko ne plačaš računa. Prejšnji teden sem dobil tale mesič:

Prosimo vas, da takoj poravnate zapadle obveznosti, sicer bomo vaše številke izklopili iz omrežja.
Mobitel

Ker je bilo poslano iz neke random številke in ne iz 1919 ali pa 2929, kot ima Mobitel navado, sem najprej mislil, da se nekdo zafrkava. Pa se ni. Štiri dni pozneje, ravno sredi smučanja, prileti tole:

Danes smo zaradi zapadlih obveznosti iz opomina izklopili odhodne storitve na vaših številkah. V izogib izklopu vseh številk prosim takoj pošljite potrdilo o plačilu po faksu.
Mobitel

Fak, res so izklopili. “Številka je blokirana”, ti prijazno pove ženski glas, ko hočeš kam poklicat. In potem še v angleščini, da ti ja postane jasno, kakšna je situacija. Račun je bil seveda takoj po tem plačan, telefona pa še niso dali nazaj, ker je treba potrdilo o plačilu poslati po faksu. Zakaj za boga po faksu? Je to sploh možno, če plačaš preko neta? Se abanet da faksirat? Poslal sem kot sliko, ker ne vem, kako bi drugače. Upam, da bo palilo. Za zdaj še ni nič, verjetno bo krivo to, da je danes nedelja…
Včasih se zafrkavaš ko koga kličeš, pa se ti oni ne javi – ne plačuje računov, hehe, pa so mu doklopli telefon, rečeš. Seveda vedno kot šala – če pa bi slučajo poznal koga, ki se mu je to dejansko zgodilo pa… lej ga kmeta, bi rekel. A glej ga zlomka, zdaj se to zares zgodi. In to meni. “Na tvojem mestu bi se zamislil”, mi je včeraj rekel kolega, medtem ko se je skoraj zadušil od smeha. Hm…

Telefon je nazaj 🙂

Včeraj dobil po mailu od prijateljice:

Strip

Today’s guest on my blog is Carolina Teodozio from Portugal. I met her last year on the student exchange in the Netherlands. She lives in Covilhã, Portugal, but has spent New Year in Brazil because she has some relatives there… and that’s what her post is about. She also writes her own blog, named Spotless Lounge, with posts in both English and Portuguese. Enjoy!

Brazil: land of samba, football, sun and breathtaking natural views. Well, that’s the general view, it’s also a country full of natural resources, independent and with a good industry – Brazil is not just carnival. (:
But, in my opinion, the best is the people – I admire them. Although it has so many qualities, Brazil has its flaws, that unfortunately is what more gets to us by the news – poverty, criminality, corruption – and that should be enough to make a citizen depressed and frustrated with his country, but no. It’s incredible how they keep up the good humor and the smile on their face, it’s incredible how they seize the day. It’s impossible not getting invaded by such optimism. Even having few, they give a lot and they help in what they can. Should be an example for many.

It’s capital city is Brasília, but the most known cities are, undoubtedly, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro : São Paulo is famous for being one of the biggest cities in the world – you can find everything there, and I mean it; Rio de Janeiro is known for its beaches and, of course, because of the Girl of Ipanema. There is also where the magic of the Carnival happens: every year, in the Carnival, the city gets invaded by people from all around the world, that travel until there to see the beautiful parade, full of color, music, joy and samba. It’s the biggest and most beautiful carnival of the world – and it does deserve such status.

Another thing that I love about Brazil is the music – there is a wide variety of musical styles and there are excellent compositors and musicians as well. Probably, you may have already heard about Tom Jobim ,one of the best in what Bossa Nova is concerned. There are other styles, like Samba, very known too because of its joy.

There is so much to talk about this country, I could be here all day. But still, I feel that I wouldn’t be able to describe satisfactorily this Brazilian essence. Who lives there, who has already been there can certainly understand what I mean.
And yes, this can be interpreted as some kind of argument in favour of those who ever consider to visit Brazil (:

Priporočeno: Macworld 2008

Macworld 2008. Na letošnjem macworldu Steve Jobs razkriva zadnje Applove inovacije. A must see za ljubitelje. Priporočeno pa tudi za tiste, ki ne verjamete, da Apple owna. :=)

* Ne veste, kaj je to? Tukaj.

Danes, dan pozneje, je internet že napoljnen s to temo.  Ako niamte časa, si lahko keynote predstavitev ogledate v 60 sekundni različici (sicer je pa rezlika med 90 minutami in 60 sekundami kar očitna). Presentation Zen pa na svojem blogu že secira njegov performance.

Kar pa se tiče novega MacBook Air – šmeksi. Very šmeksi.  Nekoč bo moj. Nekoč.

Numbers, numbers, numbers…

Do you remember the How much is your blog worth post?
Today I checked it again and it was $1,129.08. :=) Numbers are rising with the time, probably because visits are going up in the last weeks. I have put it on the site as a widget – it can be seen under the “Go Green” section. I hope it’s going to refresh itself every once in a while…

Music

As you have probably noticed there is a new music section on the right hand side. It’s a lovely widget from Sonific that allows you create mini playlist from a wide selection of songs available on their site and than paste it into your blog or a website. And it’s good looking :=)

At the moment there are six songs in it and I probably don’t have to explain you how to navigate between them.  It’s not permanent, I will be adding new songs every once in a while. If you have a wish for any particular song to be put here or any suggestions, feel free to express your thoughts in the comments!

Enjoy!
