No November gloom. At all.

I looked outside my office windows and I liked the view and I am sharing it with you. And then it made me think...






Heavy clouds are plaguing the sky over Ljubljana and the colours have all but left the city , but we've been pretty lucky so far. November can be one of the most depressing months in this city weather-wise. This are first serious clouds of the month and hey! we nearly ran out of November.

It's really funny when I come think of me about a year ago and now. I guess that November/December last year presented probably the darkest period of my life. I just didn't know what to do with my job that - after two years - started to seriously pushing me into something that was the closest approximation of depression. But I didn't fall over the edge and I would surely never look for the helps of any kind of drugs. I had to fight my way out, I just had to do it my usual way. But I needed five more months and when I finally resigned from my bossy position in May (a relaxing week in Tuscany surely helped me making the right decision; I opted for life) my life turned into something totally different.

Well, it returned to my usual, careless, happy, joie de vivre mode. And since then everything seems to be working okay. So I guess this is a kind of my late thanksgiving lament; I am thankful for all the nice things that happened in the last year. Oh, also for the bad stuff, because it made me re-evaluate my life, my goals, my priorities. So, there. Even I can stray from flashing. Sometimes.

Sorry seems to be the word to say (music)
I deleted my stupid lecture post for which I am mortified because I DON'T KNOW HOW TO READ! Self-slapped.

But I'll save these links for our general info :-.)

I love what Jil Sander does for Uniqlo, don't you? Do you have Uniqlo there? It's a smart Japanese retail chain that has a shop here in NY. Their cashmere is good and cheap. Also some fun t-shirts. They always have some of the most spot-on fadshun items at really reasonable prices.

my google results
I only saw a LinkedIn. Mah, I don't do LinkedIn. At least, I resist for the time being. It's nothing but boring profiles of people who want network for work. I'm not dissing you. I'm just saying that's a networking website. I know a lot of people on there.

. But I found this RTV SLOVENIA (that's Radio & TV, right?) page where there's a group pix = Is that you on the left (or right side facing the camera?)

http://www.rtvslo.si/files/letno_porocilo/rtvslo_ar_07_eng_web.pdf

. So where is the reporting on Mitja's work and gay Slovenia's progress - like the upcoming marriage law?

. I'll have to teach you how to navigate rtvslo.si webpage. :) - Yeah, do that. Show me which button on the broadcast you sent me the other day is for retrieving the code to re-post the broadcast? I was too sleepy to figure it out. But I wanna re-post that :-.0) I recognize your voice instantly. You should be doing a porn show, baby! LOL Forget legit news broadcasting! Ok, at the very least, moonlighting as a porn radio star. You know what? Nobody's doing that: Radio porn! A-ha! That's an idea. NO? Film is too obvious. With radio = voice only => you have to rely on content! Like reading a book w/out pix! You have to paint the pix with your voice and language. By god! This just gave me an idea for a play! What do you think? That could be FUN!

Have you seen that American play Talk Radio (1988) by Eric Bogosian? I saw the 2006 revival starring Liev Schreiber (great actor + HOT!). I love that play! The writing is crisp & explosive. Ok, but that's not about porn but about bashing stupid America. But what about a Radio PORN play? I think I'm gonna brainstorm that :-,)

. Have you ever acted? Do you like acting?

Don't forget to answer all bulletpoints please :-m

Bulletpoints:
-LinkedIn was a one day attempt. Don't know what. It failed.
-I am not on that RTV (Yes, Radio and Televizija) pic.
-I should check the reporting on Mitja. There was a lot on that.
-Navigation... follows. :)
-Radio Porn..... YES! :) I like the idea.
-Talk Radio. No, I haven't seen it.
-Acting? Nope, never, but I hosted a TV show back in the day. 1997 methinks. :)

All done? :))))

Re: my google results
I think you would be a great actor. But it's hard work. You have to memorize scripts. I'd rather write them. You'd have to pay me a lot of money to act!

I should check the reporting on Mitja - yeah. I'd like to learn more about that.

but I hosted a TV show back in the day. 1997 methinks. :) - is there a video?

All done? :)))) - Well, I replied to every one of your last batch of threads. Can we finish those conversations?

That you're always thorough is a gesture that is not lost on me, but very much appreciated. It shows that you're interested in conversation and making friends. And that's what I'm interested in. I appreciate that you do this with other people, as well. In my book, it makes you that much more special than others :-)

I know I must seem anal. But in the touch-and-go world that we live in, I like the intimacy between people who give each other the time of day. Don't you?

Obviously, we don't have to do it all the time, but it's nice to finish conversations. No?

Well..... dedication is demanding. And I am cool with that. :)

Sometimes, it is nice to finish conversations, yes. :)

Re: my google results
"Dedication" is a bit of an exaggeration :-0) I would say the common courtesy and the decency of that gesture which I appreciate in those who care enough to take the time to do it. Because so many people know what it is but don't always feel the inclination to observe it. Nobody has to. Because nobody owes anybody anything. But those who feel they do are classy in my book. I cherish them. I think you understand :-)

Cheers :-)

Well, I try to be the same on LJ as I am in real life. I don't just walk away without any explanations. Some nice manners and a smile always land in a nice place. :)

I do understand.
