What calms you down? Drawing and sketching. I found myself on many occasions at my doctor’s visits or radiation therapy, sketching on my Moleskine. This had helped me a lot through some scary moments. Drawing is very relaxing to me.
Whats your favorite fantasy sandwich? Italian (crunchy) bread with Genoa salami =[panino al salame]. No sauces, no cheese, just pane and salami. The way it SHOULD be 🙂
What was your nickname growing up either as a kid or now?
When I was a little girl, my papa` used to call me “baloss” [with the accent on the “o”]. I loved that nickname! It always made me happy when he called me so.
“Baloss” is not an Italian word, but a dialectal term. “Baloss” may be translated in English as “astute”, or “clever”, but these translations do not really give the right idea or strength of the vocable. Maybe “trickster” and “mischievous” combined could render a better idea. I blogged about my nickname in this post
where I also explain about dialects in Italy, if you are interested.
