ask me anything meme - day 01 (oct 1st)  
Happy October, FList!

I hope the first thing you guys said this morning was BAD RABBIT.
No, I'm not crazy. There's this British guy, Nick, that comes often on the yacht to do some repairs on the marble (so many damages, so much money) and once he asked, while were working in the same space, if that morning I said "Bad Rabbit" I laughed and I said "No, I said COFFEEEEEE, PLEASEEEEE, like every morning, why?" and he told me in Britain they have this thing, that if you say Bad Rabbit as the first thing the first day of the month, you're going to have a wonderful month! Well, when I woke up this morning I asked for coffee, so my October won't be brilliant, but still my day started right, with the most important thing: a nice warm cappuccino!

Before I start answering your lovely questions, I know there are some brits here among my lovely friends, and I'd like to know if Nick was just making fun of me, and now, at the beginning of every month he laughs thinking about me yelling Bad Rabbit, or you guys know about this thing too...

ragnarok_08 & flirting asked a very similar question:
What's your favorite thing about autumn? & What do you like about fall/autumn?

I like fall a lot, I like every seasons to be honest, because when you live in Florida, it's a never ending summer... That's nice, don't get me wrong... I don't have to have too many clothes, coats are expensive so I save money, and I can get out in the evening with just one layer or 2 on. But Oh I miss the seasons!

When I'm in Italy in the fall I LOVE to cuddle up with a book and a blanket and drink hot chocolate (that I made myself because I like it extra thick) that's maybe the best thing for me. It's chilly but not cold and I can keep the window open, and everything smells like chestnuts and spices... The colors are so vivid! I like rainy days in the fall, because the colors are just so full, especially in the evening when the lights hit the dead leaves... SO MUCH COLOR! To me Fall means Evolving and make the best out of what you have! It's like the adult among the seasons and it makes me feel wise!

What matters most to you and why? topum
My family. Knowing that my family is okay, healthy and happy is all that matters to me! I can't think about the fact one day I will have to survive my parents and my husband. It makes me want to cry, so the thing that matters the most is to keep them healthy and happy. My husband is vegetarian and this is a good thing because americans eat too much meat and that can cause problems. I'm not a vegetarian but I basically act like one because I never cook meat and I tend not to eat meat or fish at restaurants unless I know I can trust the chef. So I know he'll be fine for a long time, I cannot think about living a life without him. We always say that when the time comes we're going to go jump in a volcano LOL!

I really like your straightforward answer to my question. I can never understand it when people get into "philosophical stuff" when answering it.
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 01:22 am (UTC)
YAY! I was actually scared to be too obvious LOL! I'm glad I wasn't :D
But my family is everything to me! I am so lucky to have them all in my life and I'm glad that even if my grandfather died almost 10 years ago I still cry when I think of him because I was so blessed to have him in my life!

I love the colors of fall. And the temperature is so perfect, it's my favorite!
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 01:11 pm (UTC)
Spring and Fall have the best temperatures I agree!

Beautiful autumn photo!

That's why I love autumn too. It feels cozy!

Family ♥ I feel similarly... I try not to think about the future bad things that could happen. :(
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 01:11 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

Yes, it's so weird because I'm like "I can handle everything that gets thrown at me but don't touch my family!

That's pretty interesting about the whole "bad rabbit", I've never heard of that before.
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 01:10 pm (UTC)
Still not sure if Nick was making fun of me LOL!

Down here, we say "Rabbit Rabbit." I've also heard "Bunny Bunny" as another variant. It always amuses me to find someone else who knows about this!

Although in all honesty, the very first thing I said was, "Okay, puppy," when Beatrice jumped up on my bed at like 5am because there was a thunderstorm outside.

I love the fall colors! ♥

Oh yes, I feel that way about my family too. They're definitely most important thing in my life.
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 03:27 pm (UTC)
Fall's colors are the best! So warm and vibrant!

I know a lot of people that don't value their family that much and it always make me sad! I had such amazing parents and I wish everyone could grew up in an environment like that! :D
Eleonora: got/jonsansaeleblack on October 2nd, 2016 04:08 pm (UTC)
I constantly complain about the changing weather and I would love to not have to feel cold anymore at any time.... but I'm afraid I would miss the seasons too :O How can it be that way though? Is it because you're close to the Equator? Does it never - ever - get cold?
Ery-chan: Carachter: Hannah (SDoaCG)erychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 05:53 pm (UTC)
I think is the position and the fact we are so close to the water... It never gets too cold! You might need a jacket in the evening in January or February if it's very windy, but no... It never gets super cold... But the AC in the stores is so strong all year long that it can feel like winter LOL!

When I'm in Italy and it's very cold (December and January are very cold) I hate it! I don't like to be cold! But I mind it a little bit less now that I know that I'm basically living in Florida and I can come back whenever I want :D

I've never heard of this Bad Rabbit thing and I think he was making fun of you O___o
I do love thick hot chocolate, hot chocolate in England tends to be basically liquid, my work has a cafe in Covent Garden that made me an acceptably thick Chilli hot choc, other than that Caffe Nero are the only ones to even offer the option of a thick hot choc... I might buy a jar of chilli hot chocolate from work but even with staff discount it would be really expensive :/
I always try to get Eraclea sachets when I go to Italy, but hardly anywhere sells them separately nowadays and they all look at me like I'm crazy when I ask (and asking takes a lot of courage already because my anxiety skyrockets!)
Ery-chanerychan86 on October 2nd, 2016 05:55 pm (UTC)
In the comments up here someone said they heard it but in a different way... :D

I always use cameo at home. I put an extra bag and it gets so think it 's more like pudding xD I just love it that way. I can't order a hot chocolate anywhere... Even when they say is thin is never think enough! :D

Maybe at work they will give you the Chilli Hot Chocolate for free for Christmas... Fingers crossed! :D

I don't know about bad rabbit, but just rabbit or rabbit rabbit is an old tradition here in the uk to some. Especially on New Year's Day. I remember as I kid we all walked downstairs backwards New Years morning saying rabbit rabbit giggling to ourselves hoping for a lucky year.

I hadn't thought about it for years if in honest. Thanks for the trip down memory lane x

Ery-chanerychan86 on October 12th, 2016 02:44 pm (UTC)
You're welcome! I'm glad Nick wasn't just making fun of me LOL!
That's a very cute memory :D
