“mom is always Mom”

Still one of the best.

Through The Mirror

“Mum” is, according to statistics, the most common word in the world, the first word that children pronounce, sometimes replaced by “poop”, and more rarely “daddy”. It is, if you are lucky like me, the person who will always stand by you, the one that does not matter how many times you will fall she will always put you back on your feet, she will cook for you the best foods and admonish you without ever getting really angry. The one that even if you are thirty, rolls the covers if you’re sick, the one that buy you a gift from time to time and never ask for anything back, she will give you herself.

I repeat, we must be lucky!
Because  I have seen around a lot of dysfunctional mothers, from the mother-friend who grows up her daughter as a kind of younger sister and creates a very…

“Muffin, Tequila And Anatomy”

“After all this time…”

I have always swanked of not having catastrophic addictions: I do not smoke, I do not hazard, I drink moderately. For a while I got to eat a lot of the really impressive goleador[1] fruit, but I stopped.

The only real addiction that I have always had is the one for books. No matter how many I have waiting in the library or on the bedside table, if I see one (or more) that catches my attention, I have to take it!
But it’s not a bad addiction, indeed, it endorsed me to grow, to be able to compare myself, to learn a great deal and to vary the genres, over the years I realized that we have to read a bit of everything from classics to children’s books, from thrillers to romance.

So I felt immune and safe.

Then Grey’s Anatomy, the TV medical series created by Shonda Rhimes arrived.

“Lost, Club Sandwich e Birra”

A marzo è andato via internet per qualche giorno e così ,con la mia coinquilina, ho deciso che era giunto il momento di rispolverare il cofanetto delle SEI stagioni di LOST. OGGI, 27maggio, concordo con la me stessa di questo articolo: Lost rimane la serie tv più bella (stagiomi 1-3) col finale più brutto di sempre…..
💕 #teamHugo

Through The Mirror

Metto subito le mani avanti: io su LOST non sono obiettiva, per me andrebbe visto e rivisto e rivisto ancora in inverno, primavera, autunno ed estate indifferentemente!
È, nonostante le milioni di produzioni viste nel tempo trascorso, ancora la mia serie tv preferita (nonostante il finale peggiore di sempre, brutto quasi quanto “Batman vs Superman”).

Flashback, flashforward, misteri, personaggi brillanti!
Tanti personaggi!

Tantissimi personaggi!

Troppi personaggi!

Ad ogni modo, se fra di voi c’è ancora qualche babbano che non ha visto questa strabiliante serie tv, la consiglio abbinata al sole estivo, un bel club sandwich* e una birra ghiacciata, possibilmente Dharma, ma in alternativa una Schönramer Saphir Bock andrà benissimo.
Se siete su un’isola è proprio perfetto, ma per chi è rimasto in città o al paese, il mio suggerimento è di immergere almeno i piedi in una bacinella con acqua e sale (che pare faccia anche bene alla ritenzione…
