Hello Flist!
Finally a day off! I slept like a baby last night and I woke up to the Season Finale of WestWorld! What a day to be alive! Also it seems like the Italian Government fell... again... Interesting times, interesting times!

Work is good! I am selling more than the other people, owner included! I'm on fire. I organized (as per request) some of the spaces and now I know where everything is and I created an easier system to fins things and everyone seems very happy about it!

My phone is not happy! Two nights ago, it decided it would have been fun if he pretended to charge instead of actually doing it... so I woke up thanks to a noise in the kitchen, to find out I had to be out of the house in 15 minutes if I wanted to get to work on time... The phone was dead and it was asking me to charge it (while plugged on a working plug). I had to change plug, wire, room,... everything and: nothing... I tried to reboot it and nada... Suddenly he decided to come back to life, and now it works... The downside is I am scared I won't hear the alarm in the mornings so I don't sleep that well now. Time to get a new one!

♨ Yesterday I went to work, but we opened an hour later so I felt rested. During the night I dreamt of my grandfather who passed almost 10 years ago the day after Christmas. It's not the first time... I always dream of him after a bad/sad day, these dreams are so real that when I wake up I wonder if he's still alive, just to realize I've lost him and I get really sad! Thing is, in the dream I know he is dead and we talk about the fact he came back to me... I don't know what it means. These are very different dreams, maybe because are charged with strong emotions that came from somewhere deep inside my memories, I don't know. I don't believe in afterlife or spirits... the thing is, if I believed in something like that, it would just for him. It saddens me the fact I won't see him ever again and I wasn't able to say goodbye!

♨ The other day a little girl came to the store to buy a Pandora Charm for her mother. We started talking and she was so much fun! She said to me something very weird though. She wanted to send me cake but she knew I was going back to America soon, so she said she would send me something else. I won't say what it is for now because it feels very strange that she said that! I promise, if what she said happens when she said it would, I'll tell you all about it!

I went to vote yesterday and it felt good! It also felt good to see how many people in my village voted. Some voted for the wrong reasons, but I'm glad the "No" won! I'm not going to go into all the political mambo-jumbo, I promise. I know now Italy will have a though time since Renzi (the PM no one voted for) stepped down, but this is better than what would have happened if the "Yes" won! There is so much to do to fix this country, but there's still hope! I'm happy people voted to save our Constitution, something that was created by the people for the people.

The Westworld finale was so good and I predicted a huge thing last week while talking with my friends... Not the Man In Black thing, but something about Ford's motives... So good!Spoilery stuff under the cut )

That's it for now. Time to go catch up on some shows! I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend and a great monday!
erychan86: (Mood: Feisty)
I just got beck from work and I am super tired... I'm staying up just because I have a phone date with Eric in an hour, and I can't wait!
Tomorrow I'm off, so I'll be able to spend some time with my friends list... I read it all already, and answered some entries, but I'm always in a rush, so I hope I'll be able tomorrow to do better and write more elaborated comments! Forgive me!!!

While I'm waiting though, I feel like I need some fun, so I''m snagging some memes I saw around! :D

Hello flist!

So December is now here! I want to say I'm sorry in advance, because all my December questions are probably going to be Christmas related!

What I want to know on this flist Friday is basically when do you start getting ready for Christmas...

When do you start getting your home Christmas ready as in trimming the tree, putting out decorations...?
When do you start looking for presents?
What is your favorite thing to do that you only do during December?

I'm in suc a rush and I'm so tired... I really need ot sleep! But I'm happy because I am busy and I like busy! I'll make a life update as soon as I have a day off, so probaly Monday... I haven't stop workign since I started LOL, and I'm not complaining because I'm having fun! :D Anyway! I wanted to finish Lord of the Flyes this week, but I didn't have the time! I'm enjoying it since it's the first time I read it in english! But I am satisfied because I read 3 books this month! I won my goodreads challenge months ago and changed it from 30 to 36 and I'm about to win this one too!

Here's what I've read this month:

A Man Called Ove
Originally published: 2012
Author: Fredrik Backman
Genre: Novel
(reading time Oct 20 - Nov 18)
It took me a long time to read this book, but that doesn't mean it was a bad book... it was the opposite! It made me laugh out loud while my husband - in bed next to me - was trying to sleep. And it made me cry to the point I wasn't able to see the words on the pages.
It is a very good story. All the characters are very likable and easy to relate to. We all have someone like them in our lives! We all met an Ove along our way, he's hiding under a lot of grumpiness probably, but is up to us to stop and look underneath that...
It worths taking the time to get to know someone and to look underneath all the layers. You'll never know what you'll find... that's one of the teaching of this book... not to stop and judge someone by one action, one moment, one behavior,...
Ove's story is beautiful. He's a wonderful man and it's quite easy to learn how to love him, the only way to do it is not to stop at the first page... keep reading!

Whispers Beyond the Veil
(A Change of Fortune Mystery #1)

Originally published: August 9, 2016
Author: Jessica Estevao
Genre: Fiction / Fantasy
(reading time: Nov 18- Nov 22)
I love historical fiction, and I love mysteries and a good female heroine! This book has it all! I really enjoyed the characters and the story was well narrated! I was glad to see the author didn't use just Ruby's point of view.
I'm definitely going to put my hands on the next book of the series as soon as it comes out! There are a lot of stories to be told and a lot of characters to discover.
I'm not going to lie, I'm very interested in the romance too! I wish we had a date for the release of the next one!

As the cover says this is a very easy read and the dialogues are good... it flows right. I'm not a huge fan of the genere but I wanted to try... the unfortunate thing about this book is that we(the readers) find out everything right away. The book is not boring but there are so many unnecessary parts that if they weren't there the book would be around 100 pages long if not less!
I appreciate the fact that this is book number 6 in the series, but it can be easily read as a standalone, because we get all the informations we need about the 2 main characters.
I don't think I'm going to read any other book connected to this series even if I enjoyed the way it was written.

It's 2 in the morning here, but I couldn't go to sleep before I finish Gilmore Girls A Year In The Life.

Before going into the spoilery part under the cut I just want to say it was great to have this show back... I know we had so many "recycled" shows this past couple of years, and I always complain I need something original, but this was such an unexpected welcome surprise. There are a few show that can make me feel like this!

And after this mushy intro here my take on this 4 parts Gilmore GIrls Event.

So, what are your thoughts about it? Did you liked it?

Okay, now if I could have a Friends Reunion I would be completely content!

Time to go to sleep. It's 3 am now! Bye!!!

Hello Flist!

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day, a day not all of us celebrate, but we all know about, thanks to, yes, TV shows (that's where I've learnt basically all I know about America, and I hope it will be enough for when I'll have to go through my Naturalization Process LOL, kidding, I'll study for that...).

Even if not all of us sat down eating turkey (or meat substitutes), mashed potatoes and pumpkin pies, there's one thing we all do toward the end of the year... We look at the year that just passed, and think about what are we thankful of... so:

- What are you thankful for?
- What is the best thing that happened to you this year?
- (For the US friends) What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?
- (For the non US friends) If you were to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family, what do you think it would happen?
- Some american shows do Thanksgiving episodes... What is your favorite one? What's the best scene?

This has been a pretty insane year for the World: we lost great artists such as Alan Rickman and David Bowie, the US Presidential Election happened, Britain left the UE, the Zika Virus, Hurricane Matthew, The Heartquake in Italy, the attacks in France and Bruxelles,... I'm sure we're ready to put this year behind us, but I'm sure there's something to be thankful for...

The Juno spacecraft reached Jupiter. Tiger and Panda numbers are growing. Volunteers in India planted 50 million trees in 24 hours. LEONARDO DICAPRIO WON AN OSCAR! There’s a new Harry Potter book and a new Harry Potter Movie. Gilmore Girls is Back! Basically all that is Netflix is so good it hurts! Huge steps were made in the medicine world on fighting cancer and alzheimer. All the new memes, all the new books, all the amazing movies that came and are coming out,... I can go on, because I refuse to stop at the bad stuff!

my answers )

Have a happy Black Friday (that's something I definitely want to try LOL)!!! :D I have Eric doing some book shopping for me in Florida! Fingers crossed!!! :D
erychan86: (Community: Abed)
And Happy Thursday for who doesn't celebrate it! :)

✿ I just got back home from my first day at work and I had so much fun! I had to organize stuff and I LOVE organizing! It wasn't busy at all but time passed by quite quiclky. Tomorrow I'll probably start fixing their computers because apparently they need a lot of Love!

✿ The other day I saw this recipe for a Water Cake and I read it out of curiosity... It's a cake with no eggs (I never have eggs in the house) no butter (butter always expire in my fridge when Eric is not around) and no milk (milk is for cappuccino only, do not touch it for any other reason) so I decided to make it... I had a lot of sugar in the house that I only use when I make the bread, because the recipe calls for it. The cake was SO GOOD! After the first bite I realizes that was a Vegan Cake, and I got very excited... My dad came over and he tried it, without me saying it was vegan, and he liked it too! It's so soft and moist... I'm definitely going to make it again! I'm having it for dinner with cappuccino and juice tonight!

Eric had 2 days off so we managed to have two phone dates and last night I cried a little after we talked because it hit me how much I miss him and I'm not going to see him for more than a month... I'm so glad they made it to Fort Lauderdale even if the Ocean was a bitch apparently! They had 14 days of bad weather! He's going to have the weekend off too, so he only has to work today and tomorrow! I just want to see him! I miss him so much!!! He'll be headed to the Bahamas around the 7th of December for work, and he'll be back to Fort Lauderdale during the first week of January and I'll be there waiting for him! I couldn't even catch a plane and go see him, because I know how busy he gets before a trip (I know it because I lived it on my skin for 4 years... that boat is insane!)

✿ A lot of people is making Christmas cards and I want to kick myself because I don't have my supplies here and I want to send cards! I love cards! So I'm thinking of what to do... Maybe send belated ones as soon as I'm back to Florida? Do some e-cards? Do some fan arts? I don't know... Tell me, what should I do?

✿ I started a new book by Dixie Cash... It's not what I expected, but it's an easy read! I want to finish it before the end of the month and I hope I'll be able to, since all my shows are entering the winter hiatus and I am basically caught up with all of them!

✿ I think my favorite show at the moment is Lucifer! I can barely wait for the next episode, I think they're doing a GREAT job this season!... I haven't got so excited for a show in a while. I'm also so excited about Gilmore Girls and I can't wait for it to come out! It's going to be glorious... I'll probably watch it all in one night xD. Also the Arrow/Flash/LoT/Supergirl crossover is coming, and I keep seeing videos of the cast being adorable all over youtube and I hope it's going to be as good as I expect it to be! :D

✿ Also this: Obama awards Ellen DeGeneres the Medal of Freedom This speech was so moving! I'm going to miss Obama so much! You can fine the whole event HERE and you should!!!

A lot of Super Heroes Movies came out this year (and they keep coming) making a lot of people very happy! I think it all begun with MARVEL, who started back in 2008 with Iron Man and built up from there, keeping the same actors around (if we forget about the Incredible Hulk back in 2008 starring Edward Norton) and moving into the TV realm quite easily. Phil Coulson (Clark Greg) that appeared in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and the Avengers, Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) The Avengers, The Avengers Age of Ultron and Captain America Winter Soldier, Peggie Carter (Hayley Atwell) Captain America, Captain America Civil War, Lady Siff (Jaimie Alexander) Thor and Thor the Lost World, and I'm sure I'm forgetting someone, but you got the point. They did a great job when it comes to continuity!

DC had a different approach... It started on TV with Arrow, moving into The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow adding now Supergirl to the mix, and - at this point - it's quite difficult for this universe to create something as well organized as the MCU... TV actors and Movie actors are unfortunetely different... So, in the Cinematic Universe, DC had to re-cast the Flash, Superman and Deadshot, and it's not going to stop there. But the (TV)Flash can create different timelines so... I guess that could be their excuse.

So today I want to ask you guys a bunch of Marvel/Dc questions and I want to try to use the Pool feature, because: why not? I will exclude from the pool the X-Men, Ghotam, Lucifer and iZombie because I don't want it to be too complicated... So here are the questions:

Hello friends!
I want to use this flist Friday for something different today!
A lot of people is very disappointed or sad about what happened on November 9th and I feel (as a lot of other people) the need for happy thoughts and things that make us smile!

So, today I'd like to ask you!

- What happened this week that made you happy?
- Where is your happy place?
- When you are unhappy, what do you do to take control of the situation and go back to being happy?
- EXTRA: post a happy quote or a picture of something that makes you happy.


Also, if you need an extra boost of happyness:

erychan86: (The Doctor (anim))
... It's a sad day for America. I don' know how it happened. I'm just very disappointed!

erychan86: (Ship: Jeff/Annie [Community])
I'm not exactly having the greatest day today.

It actually started right.... I woke up very happy, had breakfast with Eric and brought him to work. On our way there we talked and I started realizing: tomorrow morning will be the last morning I drive him to work for a long time! I came back home, and I worked on some projects, when he wrote me a text... Apparently the boat is suppose to leave tomorrow... But as in: 1 minute after midnight, so basically He'll be gone in less than 11 hours and I feel robbed! I was ready to be parted from him tomorrow morning... Not tonight! So I'll go pick him up and we're having dinner at home, and then I'll drive him back to the boat and we'll say our goodbyes. The next 2 months are going to be very long!

So the question of the day for me can only be one:

Would you relocate for Love?
Have you ever been in a lond distance relationship, or would you consider it?
Do you think absence makes the heart grow fonder or forgetful?

My Answer )

How about you? What's your opinion on the matter?
erychan86: (Real Life: Books)
I'm very ashamed of myself... I haven't read much this month either. I have some good reasons and some less good ones. I've been traveling around quite a lot and I've been trying to spend as much time as I can with Eric and in the evening I'm just so tired that I can't read as much as I want... Next month should be easier since I'm completely alone and I'll need a distraction... The other reason (the bad one) is that my TV calendar is full, as I neglected my books I also neglected my shows so I am behind with almost everything and I'm trying to catch up as fast as I can, so that I can go back dividing my time equally between books and shows.

Also Eric now really likes Suits, so I am re-watching it with him and it's fun! He is totally into it and he wants to watch it together so I can't watch something else when he's in a TV mood... The funny thing is: Eric tends to watch an episode a day and no more than that... With Suits we end up watching 3 episodes per night! I'm glad he likes it so much! But this is a post about books so:

Here's what I've read this month:

A Place For Us
Originally published: Feb 2016

I like books narrated from different points of view and I quite enjoyed all the character in the novel, but the book felt very long... I think the story could have been told in less pages.

The Time Keeper
Originally published: Oct 2013
Author: Mitch Albom
Genre: Fiction / Fantasy
(reading time: Oct 18- Oct 19)
This book was so good! I read it while flying from Miami to Paris. I could not put it down... I love Mitch Albom and the the way he writes. This book is a masterpiece and I think it should eventually became a Classic! It is truly something everyone should read and talk about!

I'm now reading A Man Called Ove and it seems pretty good!

No LJ... WHY?

I don't know if you guys noticed but, LJ now gives you the option to leave a heart to an entry... You all know what it means... People will stop comment and just heart entries! I really don't like this because I like to have conversations with my friendlist, and I hope I'm not the only one feeling disappointed by this new addition!

I really don't understand the need for it! I understand it in socials like instagram, because you're saying you're liking that photo, but what about here? It doesn't make any sense... Here a post about my day and its ups and downs... heart... What does it mean? LJ is a place where we use words to espress ourselves and create a dialogue with other people... These hearts are not lovely, are a way to say "I read it, I'm not taking the time to write a comment, I have to do something else". This is very upsetting to me!

I wil heart entries, if there is something to heart (like a photo post or a video post) but I will always comment, because this is why I am here, to create a dialogue and get to know people! Basically hearts don't get us closer... They keep us apart!

This is how I feel about it.

P.S. I'm on my lady days so I feel pretty strong about a lot of things xD
erychan86: (Community: Abed)

I hope you're having so much fun! [ profile] favoritexrecord asked me the perfect question for today:

What's your favorite Halloween costume you wore as a kid?

And I don't have an answer LOL because I've never celebrated Halloween when I was a kid because we don't do it in Italy... That's so upsetting!

But I can tell you what would have been my favorite costume if I could dress up as anything as a kid: I would have been a pirate! I LOVED pirates! So for Halloween I would have been one of the dead pirated from Pirates of the Caribbean :D

What are you planning for Halloween? Are you celebrating today or you did it over the weekend?

Eric and I are going to "celebrate" tonight, we're going to or favorite pizza place, but no costume... We had a very nice Sunday, we went out for a couple of walks, and did a lot of talking about the future and other things... It was a very nice day and we fought the sleepiness to be able to spend the whole day together, without loosing even a moment... The moment of separation is getting closer and we're feeling it! It's going to be hard to be away from each other for so long...

Still catching up with my shows, it's Once Upon A Time time... I'm almost there. I'm watching episode 4 now and it's so funny how, on every show, one of the characters ends up cutting his/her hair and does a great job... xD I think I might give up on Blindspot and Conviction... I'm watching these shows just for Jaimie and Hayley but the rest is just so boring now!
erychan86: (Mood: Okay)
If you found a magic lamp, what would your first wish be? [ profile] lifefailsme
First I would have a talk with the genie to be sure it's not a trick and I would have to think about the wording of my wish very carefully. But I would ask for money.

I would not ask for a precise amount, I don't want money as something to hold on to, I just want to be able to have the money for what I want without having to worry! Do I want to travel, no problem about paying for a plane ticket an hotel, a rental car and food... I would not go for fancy and expensive anyway... I want to be able to get my family and friends all that they need/want. I don't want to be rich, I just want to have the funds that I need to not to worry about money and not to have people I love worry about money either.
erychan86: (The Doctor (anim))
Favourite DW episode? [ profile] eowyn

There are a lot of Doctor Who episodes I loved. I really liked Vincent and the Doctor, Eevery season finale written by Russel T Davies, Blink,... but my favorite is definitely Midnight (season 4 episode 10)

Ahh, taking a big space truck with a bunch of strangers across a diamond planet called Midnight? What could possibly go wrong?

David Tennat was FANTASTIC in it and I loved the whole episode from the beginning to the end, there's nothing I would change about it! There was no monster to be seen, it was all about the way the people on that truck acted. Such a great episode! When I have to show an episode to someone who have never seen Doctor Who I show this one! :D

Oh David!

I tried to stay away from this Friending Meme... But apparently I can't fight it xD

erychan86: (Community: Abed)
I know, I know... I still have to catch up with a lot of my shows but I was on Netflix the other day to check something for Eric, and there she was: Miranda Sings, looking at me from my screen, staring into my soul with these hazel eyes! I just had to click, and when I started watching, I had to keep going!

I knew Colleen Ballinger was coming on Netflix with a show, but I didn't know it was out yet! And I didn't expect it to be such a good show. It evolved from funny to much more deep and I really enjoyed it! I don't follow Miranda's channel, I like Colleen better, but I don't actually follow her. I subscribed to her channel (like I did for a lot of other youtuber like Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, Hannah Hart, Lilly Singh,...) but I just can't keep up... But I'm always happy when I hear some of them comes out with some new thing, and for Colleen, to get her own series on Netflix, was so great! I had to give it a go! And - I'm going to say it again - it was good! It's a very good show and you should consider watching it! It's just 8 episodes, so please, if you try, let me know... I really want to know what you think!

It's useless to say I love all the Miranda/Patrick' scenes... You know I'm always looking for a new ship! Erik Stocklin is such a cutie <3 and all the actors were just brilliant!
erychan86: (David Tennant (Photoshoot))
You're suddenly famous! What for How does being a celebrity effect your life do you stay true to yourself or do you become a total diva! [ profile] tigtogiba34

I don't have to think about the answer because I know ;D. I would stay true to myself and I'd be nice.

I'd be polite to my fans and to the press (even when they make it difficult, because I made a choice, I decided to make my life public, and  - like in every situation - there are some pros and cons.

I'd sing all the autographs and I'd be always ready for a selfie. I would be very similar to David Tennant on the matter. I would keep my personal life personal, and stay away from useless gossip, but I would be on socials at the same time (because that's who I am, I like my socials) but I'd prefer quality over quantity.

I would go to ComiCon and go nuts... I would always be there for my fans because and - since I love TV shows - I would be totally invested into my show (I'm assuming I'd be an actress here).
erychan86: (Mood: Sassy)
Happy Friday!

I hope you guys are having a good one and that the waether will cooperate with whatever you want to do over the weekend! Here it's suppose to be cold but sunny so I hope I'll be able to spend a nice Sunday with Eric on the Vespa, going to visit our favorite spots before he leaves. He's going to be on Watch* on Saturday so I'll drop him off on Saturday morning at 7.29 and I'll be able to pick him up on Sunday at 7.31.

*Watch: On Yachts there always have to be someone on board when in Port, so there is a rooster in place where every day one member of every department (Interior Stewart/Stewardess, Deckhand and Engineer) has to stay on board on call for 24 hours. These 3 crew members can't leave the boat and have to take care of some tasks, like rounds and complete checklists.

The question I want to ask you today is from one of the Memes I did a while ago, so for some of you I might already know the answer (but I probably forgot because I'm so bad a remembering these kind of things) but please feel free to repeat if you feel to:

.What's the story behind your nick name?
.Do you have the same nickname everywhere or you have different ones? In that case What's your favorite?
.Was your nickname here on LJ your one and only choice or you had some other ones in mind? What made you choose this one, in that case?

My answer )

What about you?
