Writer's Block: Le Quatorze Juillet

Happy Bastille Day! Today the French celebrate the event that sparked the French revolution. In honor of our Francophone friends, what is your favorite French thing? Bonus points for answers en français.

Quelques de mes meilleurs amis sont français, alors est-ce que je peux dire qu’ils sont mes choses préférés?

Sérieusement, j’aime beaucoup la crème brulée; c’est ma plat favori de manger et de cuire. Et j’aime la langue beaucoup; les gens disent que l’italien c’est la langue d’amour, mais je me suis en désaccord. Je trouve que la langue français c’est plus harmonieux de parler et d’écrire. Pour moi, il coule comme le plus doux des rivières, pendant que l’italien et toutes les autres langues sonnent comme une tempête. Je ne pense pas que cette paragraphe faisait beaucoup de sens, mais j'ai une excuse: je suis très fatigué et je ne peux pas communiquer mes idées clairement.

Umph, I'm really sick right now.  So sick, in fact, that I did not get to go to the baking extravaganza that was supposed to take place at my friend's house the other day.  D:  To make up for it, I made myself a cup of hot chocolate and a bag of popcorn- two things I should not be having when I'm sick, but I don't care, at all.

And now, we interrupt our regular scheduled blogging to bring you this excerpt from a note I wrote on Facebook:

"Even though you like Oasis and bell-bottom jeans, I love you to the very cockles of my heart. Also, that sentence was typed just so I could say the word "cockles"... Cockles."

Anyways, a friend of mine has ~discovered music (in his words, "now I listen to music WHILE playing video games!"), so I've been busy, busy, busy showing him bands.  Okay, mostly I've been copying the lists that I've given to my other friend who wanted music, but how important are the little details?  

For my birthday, my brother got me a Smashing Pumpkins CD.  I'm so proud of him I could cry- he's never gotten me a present all on his own before.  And it's a good present, too! 

And that's all.

my gripes about work and other things.

  • It is so fucking creepy when people watch you working.  And when you look at them as if to say, "Dude, please stop staring, it's fucking creepy," they don't smile or say hi, they fucking GLARE in return.  What the hell, man?  Even worse is when entire GROUPS of people stop what they're doing to watch you clean a table or move chairs around.  It's kind of distracting, plus it always makes me wonder if I have something on my face.   WHY ARE YOU FUCKING STARING, I AM ONLY WIPING A TABLE, IT IS REALLY NOT THAT INTERESTING OF A PROCESS.
  • I am kept over an hour later than I am supposed to.  I know, working in a restaurant, I should expect to be kept a bit later than normal, but since my manager hates me, everyone else is let off and I have to clean up.
  • I am not allowed breaks.  Or food.  Or water.  N'uff said.
  • That is all.
The people I work with are F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C (they call me things like sweetie and dollface) but everything else kind of stinks.

On a more positive note, I have downloaded a LOT of music lately.  I look forward to settling down and actually listening to it.

Also, Whose Line is it Anyways? is probably the funniest show not on TV anymore.  It makes me laugh like no other thing before it.

I have two exams tomorrow (history and science), then I'm done for the rest of the semester.  SUH-WEET.  I think I'll take aside some time to just sit in my room,relax, and draw.  I haven't done so in a long-ass time.  I miss it, it's really soothing.

Posting from school- I'm running out of batteries so I'll make this quick:

I found out several things last night/this morning:
  • don't make out with your boyfriend when you have something in your mouth.  It's really awkward and tastes nasty.
  • no matter how many fans I turn on or how many windows I close, my neighbours will ALWAYS smell whatever I'm baking and then pop over to "have a bite".
  • I should start listening to the radio in the morning.  It tells me whether there's a snow day or not, so random guys in trucks don't have to tell me.
  • there are 23 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes until Christmas.  My friend Sarah just told me that.
  • Gossip Girl is a horrible show, but so fucking addicting.
  • grades nines are little and will steal your food if they can.   Watch out.
That's all.
