Dear el-jay friends, I wish you all a happy New Year. I hope this one will be a great year,bringing love, peace and joy to everyone.

It's 14.05 p.m. and I've just woken up, since I spent the night with some friend to celebrate New Year's Day. I had lots of fun actually but I've fallen in a comatose state the moment I  came back home in the early morning and reached my beloved bed. (I'll try to post some photos in the next days)

I would have slept more, had my family not been so noisy and frustrating.

Anyway I better leave since I'm about to have dinner (in these days I ate so much I think I might explode!). I hope to post more this week, before I start studying again T__T.


This is the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius

On Friday night I went to the theathre and watched Hair. It was fabolous, the actors were all very good . It's strange how those beautiful songs keep on  playing in my mind and I've been internally singing them since then. Crazy? Yes I think so.

Anyway, I haven't  posted anything in three weeks: first because I'm patologically lazy, then because I'm very very busy with three exams I have to do in December. Saying I'm studying hard is a big, fat understatement. I really hope to make it through this stormy period, because I want to spend my Christmas holidays in peace. I want  to relax, laying cozy in my room with a book or wasting my time watching lots and lots of tv shows.

I've planned to catch up with Gossip Girl, I started to watch it last winter and then stopped for no particular reason. Then I'd like to give Merlin of  BBC a shot, because it could provide the right amount of sillines and  fun  I need in this period. If you'd like to advice me some other series, I'd be glad.

Oh and speaking of tv shows, this fall I managed to watch the first season of Pushing Daisies and I immediately fell in love with it. It's one of the most original,refreshing and cutest tv shows I've ever seen in my life. And I am not keen on exagerations. Imagine my disappointment as I found out it is to be canceled in 6 episodes! It's such a shame people didn't understand  its potential...

Oh last but not least, I need to change my layout. Is there anyone out there who wants to help me?

I Can't Believe The News Today...

First thing in the morning, I turned on the tv.  The morning news was about something local so I checked the teletext. Guess what I found?
  Halleluja!!! Obama is the new President of United States of America.

I had the feeling he could make it, and I was right. I feel something is about to change and I think Obama is the one who could bring this change in US.

A Very Happy Birthday To...

I hope not to be too late, but I want to wish lovely inzaghina  a wonderful birthday.  She's the first person I met  in live journal world and the only Italian girl on my f-list. 
Darling, I hope you've spent an amazing day with the people you love the most. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
Buon compleanno cara!

Because this is a great cover...

Today I read magentabear 's post in which she mentioned she has recently discovered  the Killers' cover of "Romeo and Juliet" by Dire Straits and has instantly fallen in love with it.

Since I love this song and my lovely  lj friend said she din't find the video (it's so because there's none so far), I managed to find a suitable one nevertheless.

Here it goes, dedicated to magentabear  and everyone who loves this song

Omage to Paul Newman

 My father is a nostalgic. He lived a beautiful youth during the 60s  and the 70s and he teached his children to love those years: the music, the fashion, the movies. We grew up listening to the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Burt Bacharach and appreciating great movies, which same age children ignored or plainly disregarded.

Among these there was  "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (although technically it is from 1958 )  that I watched when I was about sixteen (or something like that). I fell in love with it instantly, but most  of all I loved Paul Newman in that film. His interpretation was so intense and  he did look so unbelievably dashing...

(My sister and I developed a crush on him ,a man who was older than our very same father :D)

When I heard the news  of his death yesterday, I was speechless and a lump formed in my  throat. I knew that was going to happen, sooner or later.I knew he was severely ill and decided to stop any medical treatment to die in peace, at home, but I couldn't help to feel sad and a little teary.

So  I decided to pay a very little omage to the great, handsome Paul Newman, showing you a little bit of that film that made me go head over heels about him.

Wherever he is now, I hope he found peace.

Back with a meme!

After seven weeks (my personal record, thank you) I'm back with the  36-questions meme, which I have already answered to in pucca_fan 's journal. I can't wait to read the answers, i'd like to know more about my friend list.

Anyway summer is over, I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and relaxed after a year of hard work. 

*hugs the whole friend list*

I'm extremely sorry for having disregarded my lj duties, but I promise to make an effort and update more regularly.
Bear with me, please.


Just a wick post to say...



Okay now I'm just showing off...

Buona sera a tutte, my sweet friends of LJ!

It's been a long time since my last update, but finals are really tough this year and I'm studying full time now.
Yesterday I did my English written exam, it was a little difficult and I do hope I've made it.  I'll keep my fingers crossed.
I've been quite moody recently so sorry if my posts are neither long nor particularly interesting.  I promise I will be definitely more cheerful in a couple of months... Well that's really comforting...

To talk about more pleasant things, the amazing

magentabear wrote a beautiful fic with a propt I suggested!  Ehm, she wrote it more than a month ago and I really suck because I should have written something earlier (like thanking her because she's a fabulous writer and telling her she will be my best friend forever if she keeps writing things like that and so on... :D)
Anyway the fic is pure awesome, I truly recommend to read it. It's HP fandom , so cleopancake should enjoy it... but the ship is everything but canon. Nothing too extreme and disgusting, just George Wealey and Luna Lovegood.
I understand they  could seem a bad match, but trust me if you read this fic,you'll  change your mind!

Now I'll just fo to bed because tomorrow I have to wake up early and study study study...

Author's Note: I have edited the post, now there's a fake cut for magentabear
