Today I'm dedicating my day to Alex. She's coming to pick me up with her cool roofless car and we are gonna put our bikinis and tour around the city center whistling at hot guys in the streets.

REWIND- ....." ldfvgoeb)"aéç'()àvgylfsdvqà&'ç(èà&"'(èàbpzobu"...... Today I'm dedicating my day to Alex. She's coming to pick me up with her nice little Twingo car to take me to her home sweet home so I can have a nice lunch with her and her family. I'll get to meet and greet her mum, who's lovely and also meet for the first time her step-family :)
After that we'll be heading downtown for a stroll and maybe some shopping. Not that the size of my suitcase allows me to buy anything but still...

So back to the main purpose of this article: Alex is leaving for 3 months for Orlando-America to work with the disney peeps. I therefore thought that a good retrospective on our few years of friendship was due. Enjoy...



Today is likely to become another joyous and relaxing day. I have my sister all for myself and we have planned to go shopping for her husband's Birthday Party on Saturday! I have had a cold and refreshing shower, put on my flowery dress, some summer make up on that my sister has generously given to me until I can finally afford to buy muself some!! At LAST!!! Oh joy!

When comes the end of the day we will go pick up my cousin at school. Usually she would have just thought it would put shame on her, but since I'm here... you know, she wants to show off her cool cousin ;)

One a different note, it's quite disappointing I won't go once to the summer house but I have strongly decided I'll make a little visit in the second half of August... not on my own of course :D I'm very excited!

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice


C'est ça la belle vie!

Spring has definitely arrived and so did I. I arrived in Bordeaux last night 20 mins ahead of schedule with mighty Ryanair. I was welcome by my beautiful sister and Maxime (who's nonetheless as beautiful). We drove to Pessac, where my sister lives and I had a quick dinner which consisted of a suculent seafood salad.

This morning there was no morning alarm, no seagulls or empty beer bottles being emptied in a container to wake me up: just the beautiful sound of the birds singing, the warmth of the sun shining through the bedroom's large window and the peacefulness of being home. When I stepped out of the house bare feet I walked around the wooden terrace, glanced at immensity of the 2500 square meters garden and sat by the grass, appreciating every second of it.

In a few hours my sister and I will be heading to the supermarket round the corner and do our little shopping. French supermarket are just so much better. Just the look of all products makes you want to cook a 3 Michelin stars meal! But the one thing I am really looking forward to is the smoked salmon I'll be treating myself with! Mmmhhmmm!!!

On wednesday I will be meeting with Alex for a girly lunch and on Thursday I will be heading to the hairdresser to boost this hair of mine! What a lovely program so far :)



A bitter Raccoon...

The Raccoon is not sweet anymore. The Raccoon is just bitter and angry at people. BUT I have learnt that instead of being bitter and angry, being a smart Raccoon would get me so much further than the rest.
So, I am playing it well. It's not that easy to find out what to do, but I'm getting there. It's all about taking time to make the right decisions. If you have good friends (good good friends! Even just a few is fine), a good agenda and your neurones, it should make it easier!

Anyway, very soon I'm going to France. All I need really.
I'll see my family again, some friends, some sun and just take my mind off things -which I do need! I just need to go see my loving ones (the rest of them :) ...) I need some family affection. Unconditional affection. No matter what you do, what you say and the decisions you make, they still love you and you know that will still be in two months time. All I need really.


And the winner is...

Well, what did you expect? Of course Adrian Brody and Patrick Dempsey are gorgeous but when it comes to the big screen, there's only one winner... and it's not a guy!

Take my breath away...

Last night I went out with the peeps for the first time in a loooong time! Indeed I seem to be turning in to a grandma these days... Busy clubs and drunk scottish girls don't do it for me anymore.
So last night was the perfect occasion to make up for all these excuses and missed nights out. But it was a flat party and the idea seemd perfect! We first headed to the Cuckoo's were we got some nice discounts from the (very) charming boss and then headed to this party... mhm..
It was absolutely FULL of french people and there weren't that many people in the flat... so you can imagine (imogen) what was leftfor us to do: DRINK! Oh and also get high! So if you asked me that was a fairly good party, but not because of the actual party, just because we knew how to entertained ourselves approprietly! Jeez we shot Sambuca that Zane -Gnu's coursemate- brought. Crazy peeps! At some point Gnu suggested to drink some and then put a lighter in our mouth to put it on fire, so we did! ahah! Fire in our mouthes, happy times! The frenchies were just looking at us with big eyes ahaha!

Oh no, I have one sad thought... Gnu is leaving today! She's only going to England tho. A visit is on order! She will be living very close to Birmingham and fairly close to London. I am SO planning on going! Hopefully we can all go! All of us and have such a damn good time!!! Oooohh!! Nice!!

Oh how did I manage to talk about the Sambuca and not mentiontoday's unfortunate happening?! Well, for a good start, I am not hangover which is perfect because then I can have an amazing Sunday! Now the thing is: Sambuca makes your breath smell like proper poop!!! -It's ok, it's my blog, I can say whatever I want! No but it's true! HONESTLY!!! It's just awful!!! Ugh

Ok, I am gonna go try enjoy my sunday with first of all a big bowl of Coco pops and 90210, I'll figure out the rest later. Sundays should never be planned if you ask me!



Hello Hello Hello.

This week has been a nice one. Starting my new job, meeting new persons -which is always interesting- and yeah that's pretty much it! It feels so nice everyday to come back home, take a few minutes to lay on the bed and let my thoughts go freee!! An explosion of all the thoughts that I'm preventing myself to think about during the day for obvious reasons.

We are sunday and this afternoon I'm going to see Pascaline do do this promised photoshoot. Pascaline is studying photography and she needs one more face for her exhibit. I'm looking forward to do that. First times are always so exciting, aren't they? In life you always get to do pretty much the same things over and over: wake up in the morning, loo, bathroom, breakfast, makeup, clothes, blablabla... It's boooring! So when you get the chance to randomly experience something new, I find it quite exciting :)

Oh there's a few things I discovered about myself after these few years of daily connection on F. :
  • I really avoid saying "the three words" unless I really have to. I just don't like it. Most of the time people write them, they don't even think about what they are writing -or saying. I mean, the number of persons you actually love could probably be counted on your ten fingers. So yeah, no more ILU from me.

  • I truly don't understand people who take webcam photos of themselves. I did it once, posted the photo on F. and I have agreed with myself that I look like a creep on this one.

  • It did change a little bit of my life, but I try not to think about it because, well it's here and the website is not gonna go anywhere, but also because I tend to think that if it didn't exist there would be some times where I wouldn't have been so upset or so unhealthy-ly curious. I dunno, I just hope that there won't be another one of these invented in the next 20 years that will suck out our material social life even more. That would be scary.
Enough about that, I'm bored of myself already!! ahaha, are you still here?
Wednesday I'm going to see Florence and her sexy machine!!! Whoohoo! I'm quite excited! This being said, I do have to hold my horses because my love story with Florence is now a little bit over. I loooved her almost a year ago. I loved her so much that I almost got sick of her music. That's a bad think to say but it is certainly true. Regardless of that, I will of course enjoy this gig very much, but it's just a shame that managers wait so long to organize a tour so it will make most of the profits...

Anywhoo, enjoy your sunday whatever you're doing! I am off to contemplate my clean and spring flower smelling room. Isn't spring great?
