WEEKLY POEM FROM "THE COCAINE WHORES BY ERIC VON NEFF"

This is second weekly newsletter by the potry italian book "Le puttane della cocaina by Erich Von Neff, in this book you can find cruel description but there is always poetry into them, they liked to almost all my male friends so I've decided to share once with you each week, completing with a picture and a music video that I think are complemetary each other!!!

Massacro nella decima avenue
Facendo una scansione dei cieli dell'Opera House la piccola Suzie cerca una figura in forma accostato alla sua controparte la spogliarellista E il Big Boss Sfacciatamente Suzie guarda la morte della ballerina Veloce sul pareggio Si mira per la figura in bilico Bang. Bang. Con una Luger tedesca Risparmio: arte per l'arte La padrona del monocolo nel teatro Inizia l'orchestra Dice “si prega di cantare la MArsigliese” "Per il sangue dei patrioti e
Per l'onore delle puttane "
I don't know why but I always connected this text with this video, that is part of Falshdance's soundtracks…

HALLOWEEN PARY

Let me explain, I never celebrate halloween because it isn't one of my favourite festivity and also because my mother alwasy said me that it isn't a christian celebration so is better to skip, but at same time this doesn't means that you cannot plan and organize a dinner for kids an adult being in mask without waiting Carnival.
However this will be first year that I'll celebrate it, differnt because me and friends are goign to eat a simple pizza, while a friend of mine asked some suggestion for anice halloween party so this is my personal opinion about it...
Plus I must to confess that I have a love for Pumpking, it is one of that food that gives me an istant sensation of cold temperatures, falls colours where you need to cover well or you can get the flu...this is bad bad bad...


DECORATIONS: if you are good on diy try to create by yourself and if you have kids ask them to help you, because they loe to be involved in every single process, yep be prepared to receive and re…

SALES & FASHION

Do you know what is the difference between fake sales and real sales? Well to be honsest until some years ago for me when a shop had wrote SALE, I entered and bought whatever I wanted, until discover that something that I loved wasn't a real sale but a remain from years and years ago. BEfore Xmas time starts, usually real SALES are when a shop do big sales on NEW COLLECTIONS, while fake sales is when a shop hang out whatever is in their storage because they are trying to sell EVERYTHING.
What I do right now, when I see SALES I am always tempted but usually I choose shop that I attend and here I buy almost regoularly, so I am able to see if there is real sales, have you ever noticed that sometimes write into price tags % of discount and final price but nothing about original price...DO you know that it is wrong and almost illegal, a client must to know which was original price so can see transparent sales...if you don't see original price think a lot before buy because could happ…

FRIENDS WITH OR WITHOUT MONEY WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO BE FRUGAL???

Why is so hard to find a balance between fince/work/ife...there are period when I am able to do it with extrem calm and other when I need to plan almost the moment I can go into the toilet...I know it will not last forever but only for another couple of year to achieve at least half of personal finance goals...
Do you what I've learned having a budget and choose to have a frugal life? THat I was right saying that I had few TRUE FRIENDS and a lot of "people knew"...I was always full of people that wanted to came to a dinner ina fancy restaurant, a concert, or whatever included extreme spending...while when you are on a budget you need to find cheaper ways like: pic nic in the park, free events, movie night at homes...well true friends will keep on your side because for them is importan to have your company not your money, while who stay with you only whenyou open ed your wallet, magically disappeared...
I am not saying that I don't open my wallet or I don't have a s…

GIRLS TALKS

Last week I went with my parents into flower and furintures shop of the town that every year inthis period became a Santa Klaus village, rich of decoration and more...ok I must toadmit I don't like so much Halloween but I have a pure love for Xmas, seems that its atmospheare gives a twist of magic sensations, lights are so nice that is a pleasure walk watching them... I'm a fan of summer because it means that I don't need to wear scarfs to stay warm, while with cold days scarf are essential part of my wardrobe together cap...I have one that I love but my friends joke with me calling "dwarf"-yep this is the effect on my head but it is so warm under it that I keep it!!!

In the next 2 days will began my first holiday since 2012, I am craving for it, I am making plan of things I'd like to see but to be honest at 100% I'll do tourist, accepting guide of my friends that lives in the city....reverends and his wife said me that sea in the winter is great and temper…

DIY FOR KIDS

Well I love work as nanny, I can say that I'm practising into motherhood world...well to be honest I think be parent is the most hard work into all the universe... Usually we spend most of our afternoon in the park, but considering that temperatures are becaming colder is better to think about other activities to do that doesn't include tv and to be honest als o Peppa Pig, this lovely pig is a magnet for every kid in the planet... So I've opened all boxes that contained DIY books and I found very nice project also for kids under 3 years...I'm going also to find a story about thanksgiving day, that is the last thursday of November, a friend of mine say that on Thanksgiving and Xmas lunch/dinner menu is the same... However I prefer 100000 times thankgiving instead halloween day...I know it is stupid but everyone of us has preference also for festivities..
The project that I'm going to do are almost all manual and very simple craft projects: carnival masksgift boxes and p…

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

This past week is been good because I worked a lot, but I had also free time to dedicate to my weekly real dates with firends, we use a lot whatsup during the day but we like a lot have a 3d conversation: sit on a table drinking a real cup of coffee or having a real happy hour in a local, weird? Also if web is a great way for thousands of things, like online shopping without travel to city where is situated shop, job, free tv program that you can watch later if you didn't had time to see in real time...

TV PROGRAMS THAT I LOVE BECAUSE THEY ARE SO REAL

Ok I am a big fan uof Sex & the city, honestly I discover this serie when it was almost finished...however in the last years Iìve found other interesting tv program...I wrote in the fall/winter I absolutely adore stay at home, having lazy nights... Which tv programs I loved? well GIRLS and UNDEREMPLOYED Why? Because they are a sort of Big brother eye in the reality of young adulthood, yes that period when you're still try to understand which is perfect way for you... Both programs are real for several reasons, on Girls everyone is perfectly imperfect and as in underemployed you can see sacrifices you do (or in lucky case you did) to arrive in the end of the month...so is normal that they had success, ok Underemplyed is been canceled after first season but Girls not and there is a why, for me more than just one....

Then if you're so lucky to have friends that needs help to bring fruits from plants (like  apples) you will have some delicous fruit to use in your kitchen, APLLE PCIKING ...One cake perfect for this period of theyear is APPLE CAKE, last week me and my mother make one absolutely vegan and I must to confess it was delicious but if you don't want vegan there is another way, always delicious.

POEM FROM ERICH VON NEFF

I want to share with you a personal selection of poems from Erich von Neff ( you can buy a copy here) from the  book "the cociane whores" but in the italian version mixed with drawings by myself (or in this case directly from Goggle's images)
this week choices is:



Da San Francisco a San Jose
donne motocicletta Latte bianco e criniera giacche di pelle nera molari d'avorio gomme da masticare che fanno rumore cavalcando l'harley indossando stivali da cowboy in entrambi i lati infilati su un paio di jeans Levis california 101 Lo fa in sella Lo fa per divertimento Lo fa sul colpo Lo fa per rum e coca Lo fa per niente

I don't know the reason but in my mind I always connecte dthis poem to this song from Fiorella Mannoia, that say "I haven't fear", in italian is IO NON HO PAURA, maybe because in my mind do a travel n a motorbike, meet a partner and have a wild adventure (in every sense) is a very corageous thing, 
What do you think abou it?

SCENES FROM PARK

This past week is been interesting, I've met new person at the park suring my afternoon as nanny, to be honest I  noticed also some couples that are moving first steps into relations world.
Park is a great lace for kids, butI  noticed that sometimes could be a dangerous zone for couples...let me explain better, on tues or wed Iw as in the park with my eyes on the lovely little reverend's daughter, then she decideed to take a trip on the little trainin the park, 5 minutes alone....I loked other parents and grandparents onthe benches, well there was a couple a young lady and a young men both with one kid, they talked and laughed a lot and from my point of view they were flirting...
When you are a stay-at.-home mum also if you don't want other relation or other partner, is good for your ego receive compliments, tery to imgine if you have an husband that lives far (for work) from many days, weeks, months or if you are in a very delicate moment into your relation-kids change your…
