    Default This is torture!

    I sent my print case from Italy using the oh-so-reliable PosteItalia. If you don't know - being at the post office in Italy ranks somewhere south of Root Canal and just slightly better than ripping off each of your finger nails one-at-a-time. (I actually cried in the middle of the post office it was such a horrible experience. Really.)

    I don't know if my case ever even MADE it to PPSYNS, and now I've checked online at least 100 times, and the scores still aren't up. ACK! Need worthy distraction... must go back to playing Mahjong on Facebook.

    I didn't know you could play Mahj on Facebook. I'll have to tell my wife!

    BTW, good luck on your print case

    Steff,
    Would it help if I hated your case?

    If you could hate my case just a little, I'd be forever appreciative. Hate it enough that you don't even care if it showed up at regionals.

    Why don't you look up the print chair for PPSNYS and send them an email asking if your case ever arrived?

    Ok- I looked it up for you.

    Thanks Keith. I'm toeing a line of desperation and pathetic, depending on if the scores go up and none of my prints merited ("I didn't see my name"). LOL! I'll email her now anyway since still no results have been posted.

    Got her email form a PPSNY board member.

    Hope it helps

    Good luck...you need to start your own affiliate over there in Italy. Going to be a real pain for you to send a case to PPA. Of course I haven't had much luck with the post office the last couple of years either.

    Have lost my case twice because the delivery guy on the other end never did the final scan of the case so I never knew if it got there.

    Jeff likes to say he "hates" his case and his images do great. Considering what happened with my prints last year I guess my good luck charm has been if the post office "loses" my case.

    Ok, well... my case is officially lost. I heard back from Linda, and she said she never saw it. It's hard to miss, being covered in saran wrap. Fan-freakin'-tastic... Well, now I get to buy another print case AND a new set of prints for nationals. Hooray. For the good news, I have one good print here already - thanks to yet another snafu with the mail system. (My re-print came 2 days after I shipped my print to regionals.)

    Perhaps I can join yet another region and repeal my NY one. Who knows.

    Joe - I have been pestering PPA about starting a European region, but they haven't gotten back to me. There is certainly a large enough English-speaking photographic community and tons of ex-pats here. That's just Rome, I'm speaking about. Plus - I got a lot of free time...
