nuova veste grafica

veste

lo so, qualcuno dirà “ma non c’hai veramente niente da fare? beato a te…” pure stavolta ho cambiato la veste grafica al sito, quella di prima ci aveva un po’ stufato… fatto sta che questa sembra veramente molto più carina… ma attendete… vedrete quando inseriremo dei video sull’header fatti per bene con le nostre faccione… stiamo preparando tutto, basta pazientare!

napul’e

ieri ho fatto una sorpresa a bacco… ci siamo alzati di buon’ora (alle 6:15 di sabato) e l’ho portata a termini. da la l’ho messa su un treno e siamo andati a napoli. io c’ero stato solo per lavoro e non avevo mai avuto la possibilità di farmici un giro tranquillo.

arrivati alla stazione, non avendo idea di cosa fare o dove andare, siamo andati subito al tourist info dove c’era un cartello da premio oscar, questo qua:

napo1

(no train info, apply the customer care behind you in front!!!)
non si capisce dove minchia deve andare uno, davanti o dietro? bah…

presa la cartina, la prima tappa è stata una bottega famosissima che fa le sfogliatelle a nastro, a due passi dalla stazione, a vico della stazione 2/3 per essere precisi. arrivati la era strapieno di gente, uscivano sfogliatelle dal forno come mai visto prima. dopo un po’ di attesa è arrivato il nostro turno, ci siamo sparati due sfogliatelle che avevano una temperatura vicino alla fusione del piombo. ustione di secondo grado per me sul palato… cmq buonissime, mai sentite delle sfogliatelle così prima.

napo2

da lì siamo andati su corso umberto I, ce lo siamo fatti tutto fino a piazza nicola amore per addentrarci nei vicoli tipici di napoli, comrpeso san gregorio armeno, il vicoletto famoso per i presepi. c’era una bolgia totale, persone ovunque, presepi enormi, presepi minuscoli, tutti rigorosamente fatti a mano. tra i vari personaggi c’erano le statuette dei personaggi più in voga ta cui marrazzo con il trans! spettacolare!

abbiamo anche visitato la cattedrale di san gregorio con annesso chiostro… veramente molto bello.

dai vicoletti ci siamo imbattuti in una pizzeria chiamata “sorbillo” che a detta di tutti è stata eletta migliore pizzeria del mondo. vista la fila e le persone di fuori diciamo che c’abbiamo creduto… abbiamo provato a lasciare il nome ma avevamo qualcosa come 2 ore e mezza da aspettare… sta bene la! a quel punto abbiamo chiesto ad un vigile un altro posto dove mangiare la pizza buona, alchè il vigile ha detto “acca’ è tutta ‘bbona la pizza… dove andate cascate bene!”

ottimo, siamo capitati in un’altra pizzeria (dove la margherita costa 3 euro… mi sono commosso alla lettura di quel prezzo, veramente! penso di non averlo mai letto prima!) ci siamo sparati una margherita con bufala e una con pachino… veramente spettacolare!

dopo la pizzetta ci siamo diretti verso piazza del plebiscito e castel dell’ovo (tutta a piedi). ci siamo fermati al famoso caffè gambrinus, quello a piazza del plebiscito dove fanno il caffè con la macchina a pressione manuale. veramente un ottimo caffè.

napo3

a quel punto eravamo veramente morti, i piedi cominciavano veramente a chiedere pietà. abbiamo cominciato a rincamminarci verso la stazione facendo tutta via toledo che può essere paragonata alla nostra via del corso. siamo riusciti anche a fare un salto al duomo dove sono esposte le reliquie di san gennaro.

a quel punto siamo arrivati alla stazione praticamente strisciando, in tutto il giorno avremo fatto almeno 10km a piedi, carichi di buste di piccole cavolate che abbiamo comprato soprattutto a san gregorio armeno.

giudizio: 8, napoli è bella, caotica, a tratti sembra istanbul, a tratti il suk di damasco, a tratti una metropoli molto organizzata. sicuramente ci torneremo con calma per vedere anche diversi posti che non abbiamo avuto tempo di vedere! alla prossima!

il presepe

Img_0675

questo weekend abbiamo provato a fare albero e presepe ma alla fine abbiamo finito solo il presepe! anche perchè non è che ci fosse molto da fare, era una questione di posizionare semplicemente le statuette comprate a napoli sulla libreria!

se non fosse che i due malati (e loro sanno di chi sto parlando) ci hanno leggermente modificato la scena del presepe come da foto… senza parole

nuovo armadio

armadio_vecchio

questa era la situazione che si presentava nell’armadio di carlotta fino a stamattina… bordello totale, non ho nemmeno idea di come potesse trovare le cose da mettere la mattina, una vera cambogia.

finalmente ieri ci è arrivato l’armadio nuovo… ben 4mt di armadio per 8 ante. chiaramente di 8 ante solo 2 sono per me, il resto sono tutte di bacco… ora se non mette a posto il bordello che c’è in casa di tutte le sue cose sparse in giro, con la scusa che non ha mai spazio, stavolta chiedo il divorzio!

armadio_nuovo

best woman 10km

best

stamattina, a discapito dei 6 gradi e della pioggia incessante, ci siamo fatti una garetta a fiumicino di 10km… in realtà alla faccia della garetta, c’erano 2400 iscritti!

insomma, a parte il freddo e i piedi zuppi di acqua, ho fatto il mio personale! 42m e 22s, 4m e 15s a chilometro… non male dai! all’arrivo avevo le mani che non mi si muovevano più, poi, dopo tre the’ caldi e 5 fette di pizza e nutella ho cominciato a riprendere i sensi! bello bello!

vai con l’albero

Img_0002

e anche quest’anno, ci siamo… ecco l’albero di casa martinoli baccolini… abbiamo cannato la data dell’8 dicembre, però con 5gg di ritardo abbiamo portato a termine l’impresa addobbi natalizi!

ma quanto si sta mangiando?

sordi

ma quanto sto mangiando in questo periodo? tra cene di lavoro, tra amici, pacchi che arrivano a lavoro con dentro torroni, biscotti, salami (e che puntualmente apriamo e dividiamo) sto facendo il vero schifo… a gennaio ci si mette a stecchetta!

le foto del 2009

baseball

il boston globe ha pubblicato le foto più rappresentative dell’anno 2009… sono foto che definire spettacolari è poco, ognuna rappresenta un evento importante accaduto nel corso di quest’anno… ce ne sono alcune che lasciano veramente senza fiato! dategli un’occhiata!
