If you hate the Royal Wedding (already)

I don’t! I actually can’t wait to see Kate’s dress, and it’s not only because I will be able to say that my dress is much better!

I noticed CNN broadcast will start at 4 am on Apr 29… which is reasonable if you think it’s going to be 9 am in London, UK. But when I told my husband I was going to set up the alarm – it was a joke – I couldn’t hold it anymore, and he expressed to me how much he hate this Royal Wedding…. already.

I understand him, it’s a man thing.
Plus, I have to admit that this wedding is pretty much everywhere on TV, and since the only alternative seems to be the federal elections here in Canada, well… you can understand his frustration.

I think  there might be lots of people sharing his feelings, but it’s a big event, and I wonder how excited these two guys probably are.

I remember myself few days before my wedding! And I’m not a princess!

So, maybe, all those guys who hate this event could twist it to their advantage and propose to their girlfriends!!! – I am a genius! That is a YES for sure!!!

Could you imagine how it would be special to watch the Royal Wedding on TV few minutes after he proposes?!?!

OMG! I want to get married again!

What American English sounds like to non-English speakers

For few days my husband (Canadian) told me (Italian) he saw an hiliarious video on Youtube he needed to show me, and finally he did.

It turned out to be a old Italian song of one of the icons of Italian music: Adriano Celentano
Beside the great video, the best part of this song is that the lyric does not make any sense, but it sounds exactly like English.

You don’t believe me? Listen up….

And by the way, yes, this is exactly how  English sounds like to a non-English speaker!!!

Let me know what you think about it!!!!

What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex

It’s part of my job to serf Internet every morning – news websites – and get a good sense of what is going on and how the day could be.
Beside the main and tragic events, sometime you can also find – thank God – a very “cute news” that makes you smile and helps you to get through the day.

I found one today, on Corriere della Sera.

If you are one of those women who always wonder what men think about when they don’t think about sex, you can today thank Sheridan Simove, 39, that with his 200 pages book called “What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex” gives THE answer.

Too bad for you men, and I guess for us as well, the pages – all 200 – are completely blank.

But this is not the best part, yet. Could you believe this 200 blank pages book became a bestseller?
The book, sold out on, sold more than Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code, and even more than JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

I find it a brilliant idea! Don’t you think?
The book is not available in North America yet – at least I didn’t find it – but I’m sure it will be very soon.
I have few people who I really would like to get it for!!!

The author said that it was thinking to write a female version, but then he gave up because he didn’t want to spend 10 years of his life writing a book! So true!

Please share this post with the people you would buy this book for!
