“Pirožki, Jail and Freedom”

This is exactly what the TV series I want to recommend to everyone is about: ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK, by Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling (“Mercy”, “Argo”) a Waspy (white, blonde, upper middle class) 34 years old, who lives her very banal life in New York; she lives with a losing but sweet boyfriend, and leads a quiet and normal life.

“If you have pirožki in your bag, it means you are not alone. Someone loves you. “

Red’s Pirožki
(the recipe is taken from an Expo 2015 recipe book)

Ingredients for the dough (dose for about 50 pirozki)

-1 kg of flour
-250 ml of semi-skimmed milk
-35 gr of yeast
-2 eggs
-150 grams of sugar
-1 sales teaspoon
-200 gr of butter

Method

We heat the milk over low heat, stirring constantly until it reaches a very high temperature. We add a little sugar and mix it with the flour and salt.
We combine the yeast, then the eggs and finally the milk. We mix well with a whisk or by hand, until the dough separates from the walls of the bowl. Cover with a cotton cloth and let it rise in a warm place for about sixty minutes.
When the dough has risen, add the melted butter…

“A Long Summer with « My Brilliant Friend» “

Summer is still far away, although the first days of intense heat are coming – even if go together with three or four days of rain and cold. – But, by booking now, perhaps, a trip to the Sorrento’s coast will not cost you a fortune.

There is something magical in the scent of lemons at sunset.

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Have you ever been to Sorrento in July? with the scent of lemon that spreads everywhere, it mixes with the sea, with fish, with the fried food of street vendors, with freshly baked biscuits.

Have you ever been on one of the wonderful terraces looking at the Golfo, sipping limoncello * and enjoying mozzarella in carrozza[1] or other specialties?

No?

What are you waiting for?

Life is one and some whim must be satisfied!

Or maybe it’s simply the idea of a holiday, of relaxation, which I don’t see on the horizon…

“The sender”

If WHB sends us a message that we would define “so-so”, or simply “stupid” , we will always be able to find a nice shade to it, a nice twist or a profound justification; but if TPU is sending it, then not even quoting Shakespeare would be able to move us. He probably also tries hard, thinks about it, writes, deletes, rewrites it.

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

I have been thinking for a while that boys are divided into two general classes – within which we can obviously find different and varied nuances – That Poor Unfortunate (also called TPU) and the One Who Makes Us Beat The Heart (abbreviated as WHB).

We don’t like TPU.
WHB we do.

Easy and painless (more or less).

How to recognise them?

If WHB sends us a message that we would define “so-so”, or simply “stupid” , we will always be able to find a nice shade to it, a nice twist or a profound justification; but if TPU is sending it, then not even quoting Shakespeare would be able to move us. He probably also tries hard, thinks about it, writes, deletes, rewrites it. He could make up the most varied excuses just to get in touch with us. But nothing. He would not be able to  move us…

“Lunch with Felicity”

“Felicity” gave the impression that college was a wonderful place for meetings and network.
After three years with the same people, and two others ahead, it looked like heaven! Not that I was not happy with my class, at least with part of it, but the image of American colleges is always idyllic and makes me want to go not so much to join classes (almost always unjustified absent) but for the dormitories, the refectory, the everyday jobs, the study groups (which did everything except studying).

<<I trust you, Felicity. This is my drama: for better or for worse, I always believe in you.>>


When I used to come back from high school starving, I often had to wait for my brother to  return, hence to avoid eating the plate and the tablecloth, I used t turn on the TV hoping there was something decent that could distracted me. Of course, lunchtime was my mother’s turn to choose what to watch, but from time to time she let us select the series provided it was something she liked too. That’s how I started watching “Felicity”.
It was the end of May, the school luckily was almost at the end but that meant classroom work in a burst, so the idea to get out of that nightmare and start the university where – naively I thought – I could handle all my time, was a real relief.

“Bonjour les &nfants”

I was attracted by the plot: a mix of psychological thriller and romantic romance, and I must say that, unlike the birthplace, the author did not fail my expectations!

<< A little girl had died in terrible circumstances. Without anyone hearing her, she had walked several flights of stairs, she opened doors, a window…. The omission of control was obvious. >>[1]

When I was a child, I was incredibly fascinated by France, I don’t know why, but I was almost obsessed with it, I often dreamed of going for a walk in the vineyards, to walk through the Champs Elise’s, to paint on the river, and to taste the fine French cheeses.

When I finally flew to Paris at 13, I have to say I was a bit disappointed, maybe the expectations were too high, or I was unlucky, because I met a lot of rude people, I found bad food and very cold and rainy weather despite it being late July.

In any case, with the cheese and wines excluded, the passion and charm…

“Is it always Spring in Alabama?”

Now, beyond the fact that in this remote village are all beautiful, what has convinced us to watch the TV series is the cast and lightness of the plot, almost a sitcom. We are more and more avid about not only the characters, the love affairs (predictable!), but also careers, food *, places, and we are almost persuaded to make a trip in Alabama as soon as possible, because in all the seasons, it always seems like it’s Spring! But nobody, and I mean nobody suffers from allergies !!!! – who knows, maybe the flowers there do not wildly pollinate like here, or they have heavier antihistamines

The important stages. So first kiss. First I love you. First time.

First time.

Omg how vague we are. What an insurmountable taboo. “First time”. The first time of what ???? Who do the dishes? What did you read a book?
No.

The first time you have sex.
Sex. I said it. And I wasn’t thunderstruck!

Everyone in nature does it, so why all this fear of naming it? It’s not Voldemort!

However, my first time was not with The footballer. Throughout the chaos, sex has never been consumed.

How it happened that didn’t happen I have no idea!

Before him I had been dating only guys of a certain type, of the assholes type, so to speak. One way or another…

I want to emphasize that I am not telling certain brawls!

If anything, if I really must, I do it in writing. Oh god I will be alien eh, but the sound of those words makes me a mega extreme allergic attack effect that even if I pass through a tunnel among trees in full bloom.

It has always been like this, while my friends were telling it to everyone, nevertheless of whether to their partner or the Hollywood star of the moment, I have always chosen to say it in other ways.

And this is the only point on which I’m glad I’m not English because otherwise I would have been fucked!

Doubts

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Today I saw Cappellino Viola – I know, what a stupid name! But the first time I met his green eyes he was wearing this senseless purple hat and not knowing the name, class, age … he got this nickname.

I haven’t seen him for so many years that I didn’t identify him for a moment.

He was leaning against the door of the car, doing gas, talking impatiently to the phone. I sit two cars behind. He didn’t see me.

I do, and I thought that it’s always nice to see your First Love again.

No?

But is he?
