Today was the 150th anniversary of the first meeting of the Italian parliament.

I went out and everywhere was draped in Italian flags. All open shops had something red-white-green even if it wasn't a flag. Considering that it only happens during the World Cup it felt quite nice, even if I might not be my country's most ecstatic supporter, or at least not of my country's current state of affairs. But I don't know, considering that most people from a certain secessionist party *cough* Northern League *cough* didn't go to the parliament today and that I really don't think that we're a country united in the way US/France/England/Germany/whoever is, it was a good feeling. Also it kind of felt awfully nice as well that my mom made pasta in three different colors so that the plate was green sauce-plain-red sauce.

it got long so I'm cutting it. )

happy birthday to us.

*CAPSLOCK IS OBLIGATORY*

OKAY. LOOK WHO WE MANAGED TO SEE TODAY AND WHO WINKED AT ME AND ACTUALLY SMILED TOO AND I ACTUALLY MANAGED TO TAKE ONE PICTURE THAT DIDN'T SUCK ASS. AT THE E-STREET'S HOTEL WHERE ME, [livejournal.com profile] lasamy and [livejournal.com profile] pnr ENDED ABSOLUTELY BY CHANCE (after re-watching, me at least, The Boat That Rocked which is still the most fucking awesome movie I've watched this year which didn't have anything to do with Clint Eastwood). OMG OMG *FLAILS* AND THEY ACTUALLY MANAGED TO CATCH STEVE VAN ZANDT TOO AND NILS TOO (*HEADDESK*) WHILE I WAS TOO BUSY BEING IN A MOB AND TRYING TO HOIST MYSELF ON AN HOTEL WINDOW WITHOUT FALLING OFF (ACTUALLY MY HAND IS STILL TREMBLING ON AUTOMATIC BUT IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH THAT BTW).



OMG CLARENCE FUCKING CLEMONS YESYESYESYES *dies* AND IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS EITHER YOU SKIP MY BRUCE POSTS OR YOU NEED TO GOOGLE HIM. WHATEVER, HE'S STILL AWESOME. OH DEAR. HE WAS LIKE THIRTY CMS FROM ME. OHHHHDEEEEAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRR. *flails*

(and btw, I actually bonded with a very cute seven-year old or something who was trying to hoist himself on the same window as me and was a total Bruce fanatic. Me and kids bonding = MIRACLE. Just Bruce, seriously.)

WHATEVER. OMGI'MSOEXCITEDFORTOMORROW AND I'LL JUST GO FLAILING AND LET [livejournal.com profile] lasamy and [livejournal.com profile] pnr POST THIS TOO, OR AT LEAST ONE OF THEM, OR HOWEVER IT ENDS UP. OMFSM.

(sorry. Will answer to comments tomorrow morning. I am NOT functioning the proper way right now, if it wasn't already clear.)

I am SO not cutting this.

OMG the CW wants me dead. Dead, I tell you.

After days of rumblings, the CW is said to have settled on launching the hot new drama "Vampire Diaries" Thursday 8 p.m., paired with "Supernatural." "Vampire Diaries" would replace the staple in the time slot, departing veteran "Smallville," whose final ninth season would air on Friday, probably at 8 p.m.

Okay.

*breathes*

*goes in alphabetic order for the SPN people*

His Prettiness, Jensen, Misha and Jared ON THE SAME DAY which means ON THE SAME MORNING FOR ME but ANYWAY. *brain short circuits* I don't even know how am I surviving an entire season like this, especially because if they put it in this place they obviously think it'll do well.

Oh, Christ. *goes to have a cold shower* And I mean. I even have to CHOOSE which one to watch first. (I'll probably leave the least angst one for last, but this when I'll actually see the things.)

Be right back, flailing.

Also, the day after I see that pilot, I'm writing His Prettiness' character/Dean. Totally. And if there isn't a lot of crossover after this thing starts airing I shall be very disappointed.

Now I'll see if I can write or if my head just decides it doesn't want to work tonight.

ETA: OMG [livejournal.com profile] lasamy FOUND STILLS. (From the Vampire Diaries, duh.) *dies all over again* Okay, just one because there are actually two but the second won't upload.

OMG *DIES* )

Clearly the FSM decided today wasn't the day I could be productive.

new layout + couple book recs maybe?

So, I felt like changing layout and I did, though it's always His Prettiness. Looks like I'm in a I-need-Pretty phase -nods-. The rest probably shows that I like myself weird headers.

And uhm, in order to get this post to have a sense, couple book recs y/y? Though one is more of an author rec.

Captain Alatriste by Arturo Pérez-Reverte and a pretty damn awesome Finnish writer. )

Also, am I the only person who manages to read while working out? Because there's a guy at my gym who is always so surprised to see that I do it. I mean, I've seen people reading the sports newspaper, while is it so strange that I read a novel instead? *shrugs*

And now it's definitely too late. *is off*
