How to cheer a Gemini up 4 - some favorites

I have realized MANY people have been searching terms such as "cheer up Gemini", "how to cheer my Gemini friend up?" "cheer up a gemini girl" and so on, lately.
Being a Gemini AND finding myself in an emotional WTF moment, I can tell you what cheers me up! Here is a list of favorites:

Great photos for great recipes with a pinch of curses seasoned to taste at Thugh Kitchen! Couldn't ask for more more! ;)

Nerd sarcasm at, as the author states: A webcomic of romance,
sarcasm, math, and language
. Aren't you already laughing? a bit?

And about sarcasm and disappointments, how not to empathize and crack a smile with Darcel Disappoints?!

You got it? Force a smile, better if with a drink and a dish before you, but, most important, keep your Gemini friend company, we hate being alone! See ya (soon? can't promise that).

Asaf Avidan in concert

I still have goose bumps, never heard such an emotional voice. And I've appreciated the sounds, contaminated by so many Mediterranean influences... as a friend of mine pointed out (OK fine, you were right).

Cutting through buildings, highlighting fragments of life. 
Have a good weekend, folks!

Where did everyone go?

The city is empty, feeling like Regina Spector, need parades, protests, anything to mingle among strangers.
Or at least give me a watermelon Popsicle and an iced beer.

Patches of colors

Just popping in to say hi. I've been on the loose lately, haven't I? Sorry about that!
I hope you're having a good weekend and will try to come back to regular blogging soon.

Toy and candy machines

That kind of summer day, filled with laziness and guilty pleasures. Tomorrow I'm heading to the beach, looking forward to: fresh coconut, shakerato coffee, sand between my toes, sticky sunscreen cream, comic books, ice cream... and a little tan, why not!

Ingredients of a good weekend, with recipes

Top, ingredients to make cheese & mint brownies; bottom, to prepare salmon panna cotta. I told you I would have shared the recipes and here I am, but must admit... something went wrong with the cake. And it's totally me, not the recipe! In fact, check the original source, doesn't it look delicious and great?! Mine was pretty... but tasted funny, how embarrassing is that? While the panna cotta was a hit, idiot-proof, apparently! ;)

Anyway, salmon panna cotta, serves 6-8:

3 gelatine leaves
340 g salmon
1 bunch of chive
600 ml sour cream
salt and pepper

Soften the gelatine leaves in cold water. In the meantime, mince the salmon and the chive. Pour the sour cream in a pot, add salmon, half of the chive. Salt and pepper to taste. Bring to boil and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from stove and add the gelatine, stirring till the gelatin melts. Divide the mix into 6-8 glasses and let cool in the fridge for at least 3 hours. Before serving, garnish with chive and small pieces of salmon.

Venice from day to night

Weekend in Venice for the Art Night 2013.
The closing event was a live, audiovisual performance by Masbedo & Marlene Kuntz. Honestly, not my thing, but I enjoyed every single minute of the night anyway! See Art Night Venice 2012 here and more about contemporary art in Venice soon.

Saint Ouen flea market, Paris... mon amour!

As the weekend approaches, my appetite for flea and outdoor markets grows.
Here is another post about the most brilliant European flea... OK, not that I've seen many to be honest :) 
Les Puces Saint Ouen, you stole my heart! Directions here, not hard to find if you avoid the tourist traps along the way.

Have a good weekend, folk!

In the mail lately...

Sometimes packages take you by surprise... some other times you nag at people so much they have no choice :) 
Either way, these are some of the beautiful gifts I've received in the mail lately: space invaders, nerd T-shirts, fortune cookie camera (YAY!!!), Reeses, an unique dress and so much more.
Do you still receive REAL mail? What was in?

When you need a hand...

or any other body parts, go to the Paris Puces Saint Ouen!
 Hands, legs, heads and dolls are a big hit. I might use a helping hand from time to time.

Have a good weekend

A carousel ride is what I'd need to brighten up this gloomy Friday. But no despair, Can't rain all the time... (The Crow, 1994)
Right? RIGHT?

Paris, Le Pas Sage... the unwise

During my Parisian gateway, I found a lovely gem I'd like to share with you. The place is called Le Pas Sage, which means the unwise and is a pun on the word "passage couvert" (covered passage) as the restaurant is located in the famous Passage du Grand-Cerf (2nd arr.). The room is long and narrow with plenty of window seats for some people watching and offers a pretty interesting menu. I had a divine asparagus soup with poached eggs and surprise toppings, as well as a revisited version of a tart tatin. For extra entertainment I sat in front of the counter, with a colorful flower shop on the one side and a stunning fish in a cocktail bowl on the other side. If you're planning a trip to Paris, don't miss this place! 
PS the fish didn't have a name yet... if you find out, please tell me! :)
