A man in a suit from the gas company just showed up to tell us we've been paying too much per kW/hr because they didn't realize this was our primary residence; I don't know whether they're doing a general survey, or whether they just got paperwork from the Anagrafe to that effect. (The Anagrafe is an Italian government office that's like the census bureau crossed with the voter registry.) That's not what I expect when a lawyer shows up in the middle of the day about a bill, you know? He has just walked us through a lot of paperwork in order to be allowed to give us what amounts to a tax refund. I'm used to tax refunds, but I'm used to having to go get them. Also, our gas bill already seemed reasonable.

A lot of chatting about Sicily versus Texas, and general agreement that people make too much of a fuss about wanting bottled water. Also, I'm going to have to get used to signing my signature legibly instead of stylishly. (I can do both, but it's slower.) It's less common here to have a second line where you print your name, so your signature has to be readable.
