Think about the year that has passed. All the memories, the entries and posts that made the year special.
Think about all your past layouts, default icons, memes.
A Scrapbook is a way to help you remember all of that, in a single post.

What's your favorite candy? orangerful

I like salty or tart better than sweet, but I love chocolate! Eric just said to me that chocolate is considered a Candy so that makes it easier:
My favorite candy is an Italian chocolate called Bacio (Kiss) Perugina.

It's made of milk chocolate filled with hazelnut chocolate with bits of hazelnut, wrapped in its own love message (in Italian, English and French). Because every love story starts with a bacio.

When you guys will read this I'll be on my way up to the mountains... I thought about skipping the FList Friday post but I enjoy asking you these questions and getting to know you better! So, last night before bed (now) I was thinking about what to ask you and then it hit me:

What do you prefer: the beach or the mountains? Why?
What do you like to do when you are there?

Years ago my answer would have been simple, I would have answer Beach without even thinking about it! Beach means summer and summer means no school and the beach, for a kid, it's always so much fun... The mountains can be fun too but, as a kid, I wasn't very interested into going hiking and I never liked the temperature.

Today I still rather be warm than cold... But I love both of them and it's difficult to make a decision... I think I would choose the mountains today, because I love hiking and taking pictures of wonderful views, and it's calm, while the beach tends to be crowded most of the time and loud...

What about you?

Guess what? We're leaving again. We're going to spend the weekend at my grandparents up in the mountains... I'm not very excited about it because up there is going to be cold and I just want to stay home and relax and not having to spend time at someone elses' house... But we promised and we knew it was coming... We had to go in the summer but Eric's work schedule messed up everything... The worst thing is I won't have access to the internet... The phone doesn't work well up there and they have no WiFi... So I already answer the questions for my October Meme and post dated them! Sorry!

What's a guilty pleasure? eowyn

I don"t know how to answer this because I don't actually feel guilty about anything I do/like LOL but it's quite hard for me to answer with with just one thing so I'll go by categories:

Food: Brie Cheese... If I could eat it all day I would!
Tv Show: Everything Teen Drama... Seriously, I should stop with the genre but I can't
Music: Back Street Boys... I still go into a TeenAger mode when I hear some news about them

I can't think about any other guilty pleasure category... What did I forget?

I'm finally catching up with my shows and I decided to concentrate on the DC universe first this time... I usually tend to go to the MARVEL Universe first, but I still have to start Luke Cage and I'm not very excited about it, so I have deserted SHIELD too... I'll catch up soon, I promise... (I might skip Luke Cage for now...)

I've watched every episode of the DC shows in its cronological order, and I'm glad I did because there are a lot of connections between them, and this gets me very excited! I think we're going to have a great season!

Spoilers for Arrow, Flash, Legends and SupergirlCollapse )

Lucifer is another DC character but is not connected to this universe... but DAMN THAT SHOW IS GOOD! I'm always caught up with it LOL!

I love today question because I love the subject of it!
I absolutely adore coffee and I am an addict. If I don't get caffeine into my body I have to deal with headaches, but I don't care, honestly! It's not like any other addiction that hurst you and who's around you, so I'm not going to stop drinking it! Ever! (But if I have to I just have to deal with a day of headaches and that's it!)

You love coffee, but how do you like it? Black or with some fixings? orangerful

When I talk about coffee I talk about Espresso. That's the way I drink my coffee, a shot of espresso, no milk, no sugar, no extra flavor! The only other way I drink it is as a Cappuccino as in 1/3 coffee, 1/3 milk, 1/3 milk froth... So, when I am at Starbucks I either order a double (their Solo is too weak) or a tall Flat White (the closest thing they have to a Cappuccino because their Cappuccino is infact a Latte Macchiato).

I started drinking coffee when I was quite young, but I guess it's common in Italy and I've always had the same as my parents had, so that's why I like to take my Espresso that way. :) I can add some milk to my coffee, but never sugar... It tastes awful to me!

How do you guys like your coffee?

The traveling is over! We're home in Italy and we slept until noon! I'm doing some laundry and of course it looks like it's going to rain... fair enough! Anyway, today the plan is to do nothing. I unpacked last night and I put away almost everything! Eric is very excited beause today we'll start the second season of Suits (so I'm doing a rewatch with him and I don't mind at all). I also have to find a way to catch up with my TV shows... I'm almost 2 weeks behind with everything! I saw Jane the Virgin premiere last night and i think it was very good. I'm so upset at Xiomara though... Poor Rogelio...

What are your top 5 movies that you enjoy? flirting

Not in a particular order
- Star Wars Episode V: the Empire Strikes Back The Best Star Wars Movie
- Moulin Rouge because Ewan Mc Gregor has never been as hot as in that movie and I love Musicals
- Reservoir Dogs Great Dialogue and Tim Roth is AMAZING in it
- The Legend of 1900 GREAT MOVIE you all should watch it... So moving
- Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas because it was just crazy!!!

I'm in France! We made it and I had the best flight EVER! The plane was - again - half empty!!! I had 2 empty seats next to me so I slept the entire flight! Eric wanted to stay up watching the TV and now he's sleeping on the table in front of me... Poor Puppy!

In 2 hours we'll board the last plane... The one for Genova and I can't wait to be home and take a looooooong shower! I feel disgusting... We left Georgia at 5 am, we got to Fort Lauderdale by lunch time and quickly moved around stuff in our storage unit, then a quick lunch and on the road again to Miami... We boarded a plane and now we're about to repeat the experience and I feel so gross!

Here in Paris there are a lot of parents traveling with their babies and I don't know how thay do it! Where do they put their laptop (my MacBook is my baby) and their stuff when they travel? The baby stuff must take away so much space... Oh dear... I can't even imagine how difficult it must be... I don't envy them!

The question of the day is just perfect: 3 places you'd love to travel to? batmarg

I love traveling and I saw a lot of place in the last few years but there are so many I still need to go visit! I'm sure I'll eventually visit the cities I want to visit here in America and Canada... I'll definitely go to LA, Boston, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Vancouver... As well as some cities in Europe that are not too far from Italy and quite easy to reach without spending a lot of money like Copenhagen, Dublin, Glasgow, ... But there are some places that are not that easy to reach... So I'll put these places in my list:

- New Zealand. I think it's such a gorgeous place... I saw pictures and I worked with a lot of people from there and they LOVE their Country! I wish I could go viit but it's so far away and I know so little about it...
- China. Always wanted to see the Great Wall of China!
- Japan. I just want to spend a month there and see as much as I can!

Who's your favorite fictional family? moongirl24

There are so many... When it comes to TV I really love the relationship between Rory and Lorelai from Gilmore Girls, but when you used the word fictional the first one that popped into my mind is:

The Bennet Family from Pride and Prejudice.

I really love the relationship between Lizzie and Mr Bennett. He's such a great father and not only to Elizabeth. He's also a pretty good husband because - even if he rolls his eyes and tries to stay away from the crazyness, I think he would do everything to make every single one of the women of his life happy. Even Lydia! The poor guy have to deal with 5 daughters and a pretty intense wives! He deserves some credit.

Also Lizzie and Jane... AWWWWW! I love them all!

Eric and I left York, PA yesterday morning at 5.30 am and we reached St Simons Island, GA last night!

We're now at his brother Joe place (I adore Joe he's so much fun) and we're going to spend the day helping him Christine (his wife) cleaning up the yard before leaving for Miami, FL tomorrow morning at 5 am. We'll have to stop to Fort Lauderdale, FL to drop off some of the things we moved from a storage unit to the other, on our way down... our flight is at 8.30 pm so I think we're going to have plenty of time to do all we have to do.

We had 3 detours on I-95 S. All 3 of them in North Carolina. One of them brought us into a town and it was just so sad... :( so much destruction... All the trees and all that water...

I'll try to go through my friend list, but I have a couple of busy days ahead of me, so I'm sorry if I can't comment on some of your posts...

I post dated some of my entries for the October meme, and I wrote them pretty quickly so I'm sorry about that!!! I'll get back to LJ properly on Tuesday... until then take care and have a great weekend!
