Eating is Fun! Just Ask These Italians.

I think eating is the funnest thing to do! I love hanging out and eating with my friends. Especially if it’s at one of our houses. But in London it gets difficult because people would rather meet up for a drink than go to someone’s house for dinner. Maybe because there are more people in a pub or bar and on an empty stomach, you have the fast chance to get drunk and make out with someone. But shit, eating is social, and you can have better conversations when you’re high on protein.

Check out this San Pelligrino ad. It features the actor Pierfrancesco Favino (who I never realised was so hot until I saw him tossing salt over his shoulder.) Anyway, it’s the middle of the night in a hotel in Shanghai and he’s jetlagged, rolling around in his sheets wearing his tailored suit. (Always the bella figura). So what does he do? He calls up his travel buddies and they break into the kitchen and cook some pasta. In suits.

It’s like it’s the Fourth of July and they just saw an epic firework display. They’re HAPPY. Instead of just eating some snack by themselves and suffering alone, they get to cook and eat together and then go to bed with a full stomach and a nice buzz.

  • The views from the west side of the island make me anxious, too exposed to the open sea. Back during the 1500s , Forio was continuallly ransacked by pirate invaders and they rebuilt the village around a tower system and series of winding streets that gave the natives time to go to and hide in the towers. Maybe I’m picking up on those memories of terror. Anyway, while I was preparing my move to Ischia, the idea of being surrounded by the sea scared me. But still I moved here.
  • I’m not an habitual coffee drinker, I’ve been a tea drinker for most of my life. But having a coffee feels like a special moment. Like walking to town and stopping at my favourite bar for an espresso at the counter and chatting to the barista while I shake the sugar packet and stir in a spoonful. And maybe at home after lunch with the neighbourhood so quiet, I’ll put a moka on the stove and get my favourite cup ready. At home, I drink the coffee amaro, without sugar. I don’t have a palate for coffee and can’t tell when it’s good or bad, but I’d like to know more about it. Coffee is mysterious. #filmm
  • The past few days have been windy with stormy seas, but it’s not enough to stop the vitamin D walks that burn away the winter blues.
  • My heart keeps expanding to let more and more cats into my life.
  • I went for a drive on my own to Sant’ Angelo and it was the first time since I’ve gotten my Italian license that it felt like I was driving rather than just concentrating really hard on making a car move. In order to learn to drive stick, I had to forget everything I knew about driving and start over. It was really really really difficult and surprisingly quite emotional. But I think I’m getting the hang of it now and yesterday was such a beautiful day to go for a drive. I stopped to take a photo of this and couldn’t believe that I could take myself here. I think my parents would have been proud of me. #iloveischia
