Stimulus question.

I may be wrong, but this is what I understand Mr. Obama is proposing as a means to help the economy.
A stimulus package - which means $1000 back to 95% of the american families, so that they can spend it and revive the economy.

Now, my question is:

How is that different from what George W. Bush has done?

Baby talk. Or Man Talk?

I was cuddling with JoJo the other day and squeezing my "boy".
"Mom, I'm not a boy. I'm a man."
"And when did you become a man?"
"I went to the bathroom to poop and I cleaned myself."

That would qualify.


"I lost the paper that Miss. N. gave us in Sunday School, with the list of  the books of the Bible... but I don't think it's a problem.. I have the table of Continents".

La bambina dai capelli turchini.

Mio marito sta leggendo Pinocchio a Juniper.
Capitolo 16. La prima apparizione della fata turchina.
Che pero' viene descritta come una "bambina dai capelli turchini".

Allora, io mi domando..
Com'e' che nel Pinocchio di Comencini (anno 1972) la fata turchina la interpreta la Lollobrigida????
(Una bambina un po' in carne.. mi pare.)


A proposito di Pinocchio.. il mio di Pinocchietto mi ha detto che a lui i "pinocchi" non piacciono, e me l'ha detto davanti ad un piatto di... gnocchi.

25 random things about me.

1. I tend to procrastinate. Colleen tagged me about this list months ago...
2. Up until a couple of months ago, I didn't have a middle name.
3. I now have a middle name, and it's my maiden name.
4. I cannot stand the smell of newspaper.
5. Of my grandparents, I've only met my maternal grandmother.
6. I am the youngest cousin on my mom's family's side.
7. I know three languages. Or four. Or five. Depending on how you count.
8. I've been defined by an italian friend as a puritan. If I asked most of the people around here I would probably be defined as a liberal. Which one is it?
9. If I were a comic strip character I would be Garfield.
10. I love(d) making fun of soaps with my friend Aurora, back in Italy.
11. My favorite tea is "Twinings", Ceylon Orange Pekoe.
12. My favorite coffee is coffee.
13. When I was back in Italy I never had any checks or a credit card. Come to think of it, I never even had any cash, either.
14. When (if) I write Christmas Cards.. it's the following January.
15. Growing up I always thought I would end up living in Sarajevo. It didn't happen. Yet.
16. I love buying stuff at the consignment store, or garage sales.
17. If I buy (or I'm given, or I find) something new and nice, I won't use it for a long time, so that I won't mess it up. That is crazy, I know. And I'm trying to change that.
18. When I was a kid I found a really nice gold ring with quite a bit of diamond looking little bitty stones. I still have it. But I don't wear it (see point 17.. I did wear it a few times, but I lost a couple of those stones..)
19. I am the "technological" one in the family. Not my husband. So, do not talk to him when you're trying to explain something about the computer..or, worse, don't tell me: "Tell your husband this is how you do it on the computer, he'll know what I'm talking about", because he won't.
20. One of my favorite movies is Don Camillo.
21. Buying pens relaxes me, and makes me happy. I have a definite preference for fountain pens.
22. Beautiful sceneries don't impress me too much. I prefer getting to know people.
23. I don't remember if I was supposed to tag other people about this note.. Oh, well.
24. My brain has become a colander. I cannot retain information and the info that was in there is getting lost.
25. What was I supposed to write here??
