This is how I feel about it:

Foca beata

It's going to be cool on all sorts of levels.
Wet too but, hey...

Today I had a sad,
So went down to the kitties.
They told me all was fine,
And did I have the crunchies?

They did a little dance:
I had brought some crunchies
They covered me with hair,
And I had a happy.

Somehow time is slipping out of my hands again - I do believe it was just passing, embarassed and not having meant to be there at all in the first place - and blogs aren't being written anymore.

I should tell you about hazelnut milk (a summer addiction).
I should tell you about a visit to Santa Cecilia or to the American Academy of Rome.
I should.
I probably will.

In the meantime, I am just swatting flies away )

I'm feeling a little depressed by my current lack of energy, which - so I have been told - could (might) be blamed on the seasonal change. Or not.

Luckily, I have a silly cat at home who reminds me about the importance of keeping a zen attitude.
And of meditation:

Said a friend.
To which Microbetta and I are saying: indeed.

Bah, Humbug.

Nobody will sit there for a while but the birds

But nevermind, more fresh snow is forecast for the night...

And there's a new neighbour:

New neighbour

I ventured out to get some parmigiano and I have never seen so many people walking in my neighborhood. Normally they all drive around (even for the shortest distances), so seeing so many people out gives the place a holiday flavour. Some kids have never seen so much snow.

The cats aren't amused.
Cioccolata al peperoncino - Atomica!

Gorgeous but chilly.
I had a few raspberries from the garden for breakfast and they were nearly a frozen dessert. I bet that bush is not going to go-on with berries much longer...

Rioters are having a field day burning cars. They are only there for provocation, really. The demonstration was supposed to be peaceful despite general indignation.
So Rome burns - or rather a few cars do as well as the odd police bus - but that's in the city centre, far away from where we are.

See? All is quiet here.

We might have been tempted to join the demonstration but were kept captive by a lunch invitation.
And you don't revolt on a over-filled stomach.
This is one of the major holidays in Italy and we managed not to do ANYTHING. No visit. No travel. No overeating.

Peaceful Ferragosto

A great deal of snoozing was achieved.


I am celebrating a long (4 days) weekend.

The end is nigh

According to an alleged prediction made by an old geezer going by the name of Raffaele Bendandi (1893-1979), Rome might be (or not) destroyed by a major eathquake today.

The theory used by Bendandi was based on planet alignements (think of earthquakes as earth tidal movements - Fascinating stuff for SF stories, so so thrilling if you are thinking reality).
This is violently disputed, OBVIOUSLY, and the keepers of his records actually say that no actual place was actually named in conjunction with the date of 11 May 2011 (also claim that no such date was ever in his records too) (although, apparently, he also has major earthquakes planned for April 2012).
But it keeps the interwebz buzzing and some level of hysteria is growing.

Or is it?
My neighbours seemed much more concerned about having a wall destroyed yesterday evening than having just to lie back and relax while the Earth would do the hard work for them...
Mostly, just an internet hype mostly.

Crazy or not (of course, it is a crazy prediction), the guy predicted the 1925 Marche earthquake six months before it happened and he was just 2 days off in his prediction... (got a knighthood from Mussolini for it, too). Ooops.

Well. If Rome disappears, just remember this:
I have always loved you.

I am currently away and eating too much at my parents'.
Thinking of you.

Propeller planes sound just like angry bumblebees. Gravity challenged angry bumblebees. Bald gravity challenged angry bumblebees.
With a smile, a cup of tea and a book.

It won't make things in Iran get any better but it might make you smile.

Microbetta wants to know when the UN will finally step into that Iranian mess.

Oh that and who stole her lizard toy/snack. Again.
(Guess who is on Lizard Rescue Patrol?)
