seven habits about me [Oct 13 2007 3:07pm]
I've been tagged by herm_weasley(actually ages ago... sorry._. if only days lasted 36 hours *sighs*)

1. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself.
2. Tag seven people to do the same.
3. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag whoever wants to do it.


1. I've many different obsessions like needing to read a magazine at least one time in a week, having always chewin-gums at home, watching Disney Channel the more I can (! Sky is evil) (and Nickleodeon, with the result that now I now at heart every Unfabolous episode), watching trailers (sometimes I prefer trailers to the movies themselves, and I particularly remember for this that Nicolas Cage movie about 11/9... disappointment disappointment disappointment) and last but not least clothes and every stupid and completely unuseful things like hair accessories and shoes. I'm so girly *girly giggle*.

2. For my eighteenth birthday I didn't give a big party, but I brought all my favourite friends to the seaside for the afternoon, then the evening we had a dinner in a lovely restaurant on the beach with music and after the dinner we went to put the feet in the sea and that was one of those precious moments you'll remember.

3. I'm one of the most jealous and possessive people I know (mpf). When I find something I like (that could be an object or a real person) I become crazy when someone try to 'steal' it to me. I do not shout or something (that would be awfulXD) but inside I'm on fire. I can be very diffident with that person. You all are warned! *scary laughter*
 
4. On Christmas my bestfriend gave me my longest HP fanfiction published like a real book, with my name and surname on it and the cover and everything and when I opened the present she wasn’t there but I was going to cry or something embarrassing like that. I think that was one of the most beautiful presents I received in my life.
 
5. Recently I changed washing machine because… the other caught fire! It was on one of the last Sundays: firstly I took a shower in the bathroom where the old washing machine was; and after ages I noticed water was flooding the whole bathroom and under the door to the kitchen°_° Without thinking I even touched a socked uncovered (!), and my father shouted ‘LEAVE IT!’ and me ‘oh… yes’. I’m so sharp. Anyway, the evening my mother put the washing machine on and after some minutes we begin to see some smoke… and decide to ignore it (sharpness is a family characteristic)… but when the electricity stopped working (I was watching the end of one of Heroes episodes… you can imagine my joy with television suddenly over) we began to worry especially because the smoke was turning my kitchen in a sort of Silent Hill. Me and my mother finally phoned my father and the firefighters, who discovered a small fire in the bathroom. They were astonished, the firefighter-in-chief told us it usually happens with televisions but never with washing machines. How bizarre.
 
6. I hate all that people Mtv-addicted who seem to pass their time from watching a reality or music videos to spending hours on train to go to TRL and shouting with their navels showed to every human-being. It really amazes me, maybe because I’m not really interested in music and never had a crush on a singer or band.
 
7. Except for Spice Girls, of whom I had an entire exercise book full of pictures when I was a child. Obviously I liked Emma. I was something like ten years old: the following year, with puberty approaching, I finally forgot that and made an entire exercise book full of Daniel Radcliffe pictures. Well, you’ll remember how pretty he was in the first movie, poor Dan.
 
I tag everyone who wants to do it =)

stavolta in italiano. [Aug 01 2007 11:32am]

"Non sembra male."

Questo è stato il mio commento, insieme con la Cri, i primissimi tempi della nostra amicizia, dopo aver visto Harry Potter e la Pietra Filosofale al cinema. Avevo compiuto da non molto dodici anni. Ebbene sì, lo confesso dopo averlo tenuto a lungo segreto: prima di leggere il libro vidi il film, vergogna delle vergogne per una Potter addicted quale sarei poi diventata, ma tant'è.
Con sommo disappunto all'epoca mi resi conto che avevo già passato l'età per ricevere la lettera da Hogwarts. Pensai seriamente ad un errore delle poste, perché c'era qualcosa in quella storia, in quella specie di universo a parte che sentivo che doveva in qualche modo appartenermi, o meglio, io dovevo appartenere a lui.
I giorni successivi mi capitò tra le mani il fascicolo pubblicitario del club del libro di mia madre e mi feci regalare il libro, che non mi richiese molto tempo per leggerlo; il primo libro del genere 'fantastico' che lessi. 
Finito quello, richiesi subito la Camera dei Segreti. E ancora, il Prigioniero di Azkaban. E ancora, il Calice di Fuoco. Insomma, mi rifeci abbastanza del ritardo avuto rispetto a tutti gli altri fan (sebbene all'epoca fossi totalmente all'oscuro dell'esistenza del fandom). 
Puntuale, il 6 Dicembre 2002, a vedere la Camera dei Segreti. Sempre in compagnia della Cri, due tredicenni sempre più adoranti, sempre più nel tunnel della pottermania.
Poco dopo, scrivo la mia prima fanfiction (la vergogna più grossa di tutte e non solo per come era scritta; non ho il cuore di svelarne l'arcano ma basti pensare che le due uniche persone che l'hanno letta -e spero tacciano!- ci hanno praticamente fatto su una parodia, il che è il minimo), mai pubblicata, e sto per raggiungere la via irreversibile del fanatismo quando qualcosa, ad un certo punto, mi ci allontana totalmente.
Un'altra vergogna da aggiungere e da scrivere con la piuma della Umbridge sulla mano: quando uscì, comprai l'Ordine della Fenice, il giorno stesso, sempre con la Cri, leggemmo i titoli dei capitoli tutte eccitate ma inspiegabilmente, irragionevolmente, insensatamente, rimase intoccato e non letto per un anno.
Un anno intero in cui chissà, forse qualcos'altro aveva preso il sopravvento, nel mio periodo prepebuberale di indecente incostanza, che sembravo uno di quei cani randagi che ti ringhiano contro anche se sono feriti.
Eppure, se le avessi lette, quelle cinquecento pagine, avrei visto un Harry isterico e arrabbiato col mondo e da qualche parte avrei capito che condividevamo la stessa isteria.
A quasi quattordici anni la Cri mi mise il guinzaglio, mi trascinò a vedere il Prigioniero di Azkaban ai primi di giugno e io rivedendo il mio primo amore, ebbi un tale ritorno di fiamma che mi gettai subito sul quinto libro, che lessi in nemmeno due giorni.
Nelle ultime pagine, quelle della battaglia al Ministero, dovetti fermarmi cinque minuti per respirare dall'emozione e dal batticuore. Come avevo fatto a stare senza? Come avevo potuto dimenticarmelo su uno scaffale della libreria in quel modo?
Da allora non me ne staccai più, più, più. Entrai nel pieno del fandom e conobbi persone di una tale genuinità, dolcezza e simpatia che mi stupivo esistessero sul serio. Tutte legate dalla stessa forte, tenace, intensa passione: Harry Potter.
Per Harry ho scritto tra una cosa e l'altra più di cinquecento pagine di fanfics. Per Harry ho preso su in una giornata di Luglio con 33° all'ombra ed in tre giorni mi sono letta tutto il Principe Mezzosangue con un inglese che manco sapevo di possedere. Con le lacrime agli occhi. Per Harry sono andata a Londra perché non potevo aspettare di vedere il Calice una settimana dopo del resto del mondo, dovevo vederlo subito, e là l'ho sentita davvero, l'atmosfera, la folla che quando le porte si sono aperte si è gettata nel cinema in uno scintillio di sciarpe rosso e oro. Per Harry, due anni dopo, dieci giorni fa, ho preso su, un'altra giornata con 30° all'ombra, per essere tra i primi ad averlo in inglese, lui, il settimo, la fine, il più importante, the Deathly Hallows. 
Rintanata in casa al mare, alcun contatto umano, alcun contatto con televisione, computer, giornali, solo io, il divano, DH tra le mani e gli occhi costantemente spalancati.
Il lunedì sera l'ho finito e le mie condizioni sembravano quelle di una che è appena stata mollata dal suo grande amore: con gli occhi pieni di lacrime, i capelli spettinati, il gelato al cioccolato in mano, eppure più di un sorriso nel ricordarsi le parti migliori. 
Io e 'Harry' ci siamo presi e lasciati, ma io questa saga l'ho amata sul serio, l'ho amata sinceramente e di un amore autentico proprio perché tra tutti gli alti e bassi non ho mai davvero smesso di amarla.
E ora che sono tornata, e vedo gli sguardi o leggo le parole degli altri fans penso che va bene, forse nessuno di noi ha ricevuto la fatidica lettera da Hogwarts, forse nessuno di noi è mai riuscito a bussare al mattone giusto per entrare a Diagon Alley, ma una magia qui da qualche parte dev'esserci stata.
Noi che siamo cresciuti con Harry, Ron ed Hermione, noi che per un attimo almeno abbiamo davvero passeggiato per i corridoi di Hogwarts, abbiamo protestato contro le ingiustizie, ci siamo vergognati delle prese in giro, abbiamo guardato Voldemort negli occhi, abbiamo riso e abbiamo pianto, noi abbiamo ricevuto questa cosa speciale mai verificatasi nella storia. Delusi o non dalla fine della saga, la maggior parte di noi ha lo stesso sguardo un pò perso.
Quello che ci porteremo dietro sarà più potente di un Incanto Patronus anche se non avrà forma.

"Non esisterà mai più un libro simile."
"Sono d'accordo."

aw! [Jun 28 2007 4:22pm]
Back from London and...

I MET KEIRA KNIGHTLEY AND RUPERT FRIEND TOGETHER AT HYDE PARK ON SUNDAY THE 24th.

*PANIC*

OH MY. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL.

I was on holiday with my friends for a week and on Sunday it was my bestfriend's 18th birthday, so I thought it was a good idea bringing her and our friends to Peter Pan in Hyde Park. We went through the park (along the Serpentine), made some photos with Peter and then we were going to the Tube to go to Camden.
And then it happened! I was talking about don't-know-what and then my bestfriend shouted 'JO!' and I raised my eyes and saw a couple passing near to us. I thought 'Hey, the boy is amazingly similar to that Wickham in Pride and Prejudice...'... then I looked at the girl who he was grabbing, and she looked at us a bit nervous and very fastly and I understood why my friend was calling me, she was Keira. Oh my. I was near to faint. They were walking very fast in the opposite way of us and we (five 17-18-year-old girls) were completely in panic. And my father, the only adult there, was saying 'follow her! follow her stupid jerks don't be shy!' but we were like 'OH-MY-I-CAN'T-BELIEVE-SHE-EXISTS'.
Honestly neither of us had enough courage to follow her and talk to her so I haven't any proof it actually happened but I'll always remember the emotion I felt when I saw her. It's strange, it's like I didn't know before she's a human XD
Gosh.

And, okay. I know that it sounds incredible or something too amazing to be true but I swear it's the truth.
The next day we were in Oxford Street and we saw Evanna Lynch.
Sounds like an enormous LIE I met two actresses I adore in two days and even I can't believe it. But°_°
She was standing out the Tube with some friends (some guys and some girls) and my bestfriend (I'm beginning to think she's something like a talent scout) told me 'Hey, look at that girl, she's so similar to that actress who'll play Luna, maybe she's a fan'. So I looked at her and when I saw her super-long blonde hair and her blue and weird eyes I screamed 'WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU SAYING, SHE IS LUNA!'. She was still doubtful but we were near enough to hear her voice and that was absolutely Evanna's (though I didn't have doubts about it). We stood near her group of friends for minutes and minutes, completely paralized like when we met Keira, we didn't know what to do, and then I looked at them for the hundreth time and a very tall friend of her saw me and looked like 'hey, stop it, don't gaze us!'.
My father (who obviously didn't know who she was, as you know the movie hasn't been realised yet and her face on posters isn't so recognizable) was like 'who's that? who's that? why are you standing here almost in the center of traffic?'.
Eventually we didn't talk neither to her. I can't believe it. We couldn't talk to Keira (I prefer to have seen her without talking to her, like some kind of goddess) but with Evanna we could dare, being still not so famous. Dammit.
Well. This post is non-sense for readers, I don't have a photo/proof to show. I feel so stupid for being so shy.
But, okay, it was a great holiday, not just for Keira and Evanna, obviously XD
We had a great time and ate the most strange things and even if the weather was so cold and usually cloudy (that's strange for me, I've been in London many times but in this period it was always warm and sunny) we all together laughed a lot. Sigh. This's the kind of holiday you'll remember I suppose, when you and your friends are still young and naives.

Another thing, I finally managed to post my Draco/Ginny video on youTube with the help of
