<<Since then, I must have given The Rosie Project to at least 50 friends. Graeme has been busy too, writing a sequel called The Rosie Effect. As soon as we heard about it, Melinda and I asked him for an advance copy, and we enjoyed it so much that we invited Graeme to come to Seattle to talk to us about it.>>

 I don’t usually trust the reviews of others about books, but if Bill Gates is careful to dwell on the book to all his friends and write reviews everywhere, this a intrigues me quite a bit:

“Chicken Wings, Friendzone And Friends”

he only reflection that I would add to what I already said, is to use it as a remedy “against the Autumn”, the season of swings mood and climate change, the commitments that start accumulating and the first colds. Despite the twenty years after the first episode, it remains one of the most ingenious and modern serial products of the tv program. A therapy, a breath of fresh air, some laughter in these obscure times.

“Knock – Knock : Murder or Treat?”

provide yourself with the S’mores Lollipop * and other mouth-watering treats, with a beautiful face mask (one of those that…. if you open the door with that cucumber smeared on your face you are more scarying than if you wore a full Halloween costume), and make sure that there is still a daylight, or someone in your home that can protect you from the psychological anxiety that this show generates.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite celebrations!

I know, I know, is not an Italian custom. giphy8So what? I celebrate it anyway. It will be for my penchant for the theatre but the idea of dressing up and walk around with a different face for a night in which everything-can-happen, it’s something I really like!

I’m glad that in recent years it is also spreading here and that some children come knocking for the traditional “trick or treat?”; It will not be a little make-up and fun to make us lose our cultural identity !!
What I hope is not going to be imported along with the festivities and costumes by creatures of the night, it is the incredible spear in murders that take place on the night of October 31.
I don’t think it’s the party itself to blame, whilst the possibility for murderers to blend…

“Wind, Violin And Spices”

Still my favourite

<<Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.>>[1]

 

The wind howls it creeps under the porticos, raises her skirts, ruffles the hair, creates vortices in the meadows, taking with it yellow, red and brown leaves; it drives the clouds and thickens the seas. Then suddenly it stops and it comes the rain, slow, bored, it fills the spaces with its smell of Autumn by sliding the drops on the windows, getting the objects dirty  and washing away the sins.

I do not know whether it is true or just a romantic legend , what I know for sure is that there is pollen in the air and that means that my eyes begin to shed tears , my nose to drip , my throat swells up , I begin to scratch like a monkey in rut and I’m more irritable than usual .giphy8If the formula applies to you as well [Spr+ing = Allergy²] you are in the right place because I think I have the appropriate relief for our sufferings : all we need…

“Are you friendzoning me?!?!”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Let’s speak out , the friend zone is a social evil that is advancing silently without mercy . It has indiscriminately hit men and women, adults and teenagers, reality and fiction, and the symptoms are different and therefore recognising them is very very difficult.
For those who do not know what the friend zone is, let me enlighten you:

tumblr_mw3582lbxw1t09u03o3_500-1424891256Like exponential diffusion, it is difficult to recognize. This is mainly because the communication between men and women has always been complex, no one has yet managed to encode a language that translates immediately from “female” to “male” and vice versa; communication in writing, as happens more and more often with social media (fb or twitter) or with the old dear sms, whatsapp and email, between the two sexes is risky .

giphy2Winter,strictly . Late afternoon , when the sky is still not entirely cloaked in blacks clouds but still retains some shade of blue, and a few more overbearing stars come out .

In this atmosphere , make sure you locked the door and windows ( or on first draft which makes it slam you will leave your heart on the floor ) , and open a bottle of a good red winegiphy3 not a cardboard swiped at the supermarket , a really good one, not too sweet , I recommend theBarolowine from Piedmont: pronounced garnet colour red, at times ruby and presenting orange hues with the progress of aging ; its aroma is intense , complex and very persistent.
