Now I will go try on some shoes...

Hello, The Internet. If you care to be all up in my personal business like that, I will tell you that apete and I broke up today. We couldn't make the long-distance thing work, it's mutual but it still hurts and that is all I care to share with The Internet. I hate telling people about breakups and I really hate being all Web 2.0 about it, but I feel like I have to tell people somehow. I wish I could just wear a sandwich board instead, or maybe have a t-shirt printed. At least this way I can just...

Put your tape decks on record, y'all

Ludacris hosted Saturday Night Live this weekend and surprised me by not taking himself seriously and actually being funny. This is not something I really expect from rappers, who seem way too concerned with getting other people to take them seriously. Now I think that Ludacris is awesome. Yay Ludacris. There were many funny parts to the episode, but one really stood out, in that it has been in my head CONSTANTLY FOR ABOUT 36 HOURS. Fortunately, NBC has put the whole Blizzard Man sketch online so that you too can enjoy these miraculous lyrics (and the dances that go...

'To be angry is to be human'???

I hate umbrellas. They're coarse and rough and irritating, but here everything is soft and smagggghhh-- Sorry, no, that's sand. Let's start over. I hate umbrellas. I killed them. I killed them all. They're dead, every single one of them. And not just the men, but the women and the children, too! They're like animals, and I slaughtered them like animals! I hate them! Hmmm. Not quite. I hate umbrellas. They never work correctly for me. You have to hold the stupid thing, so you never have a free hand to do anything. Rain hardly ever falls straight down, so...

Dorkgument

My sister set out to watch Hello Dolly! last night and instead ended up watching Road to Bali. My mom and I immediately had the same reaction: "The two were so much alike!" "They were! They still are!" She didn't take kindly to us making fun of her through Pirates of Penzance quotes and really ought to have fired back something along the lines of: "Collectively, I look upon you with a disgust that amounts to absolute detestation."...

What am I going to do with forty subscriptions to Vibe?

I have discovered the future. And it is not pretty. Watching Office Space yesterday, I realized that there are at least two jobs in that film that match up to our School of Information training. First of all, after 501, we are trained in consultancy, which means that we could take over for the Bobs. If I chose that career path, I imagine a conversation something like: srah: Let's see. You're Neil... Diamond? (he nods) srah: Is that your real name? Neil: Yeah. srah: Are you in any relation to the pop singer? Neil: It's just a coincidence. srah: To...

Is it a breakup if it never had a chance to get started?

I hate it when Neil Diamond has the words for my situation, because I don't want to become that person who endlessly quotes Neil Diamond, thinking that he's some kind of god of lyrics-writing when he really writes a lot of crap. Oh wait, I already am the person who endlessly quotes him, so I might as well keep going.

The movie in my mind

It's raining. And when it's raining, I don't feel like being out and about or even like being at work, next to the window. I feel like being curled up in a blanket on the couch, drinking tea and watching Jane Austen movies. But I'm not. So let's pretend we are and recreate Austen movies in quotes. I am watching Sense & Sensibility in my mind. You may watch it with me, or curl up on your own couch and watch something else. Edward Ferrars: I wish to check the position of the Nile.

Remember, children: real culture before pop culture

I went with my parents to Amadeus, a lovely restaurant specializing in eastern and central European food. Like many restaurants in Europe, it is a small place and is served by only one waiter. The decor is somehow old-fashioned enough to seem authentic and they have cans and glasses instead of fountain drinks. It's a very nice, familiar atmosphere. My family quite enjoyed our potato schnitzel, pierogi and salads while listening to the live piano music. I recognized a few pieces and went on with my meal, then heard what I have now been able to identify as Chopin's Étude...

Votre dévouée élève, qui vous aime de tout son coeur

While reading The Professor (thanks for suggesting it, Katie), I was full of fantasies about updating it (à la Pride & Prejudice/Bridget Jones), writing a novel loosely based on it, or bringing it to the big screen. The book is about an Englishman who is unhappy in his work, so he goes off to Belgium and teaches English. I like it despite the protagonist's airs of grandeur, because there are parts that remind me of my experiences as a teaching assistant in France. No man likes to acknowledge that he has made a mistake in the choice of his profession,...

Meesa meejahoor

I am what Meg calls a meejahoor. Recently I have been constantly trying to read four or five books at the same time and watching movies when I come up for a breath of non-literary air. I think this is because I was deprived of English-language books and movies (or at least of selection) in France and I'm now so inundated with them that I gave myself and get in over my head.

I can't seem to make piracy pay

Song of Perfect Propriety by Dorothy Parker Oh, I should like to ride the seas, A roaring buccaneer; A cutlass banging at my knees, A dirk behind my ear. And when my captives' chains would clank I'd howl with glee and drink, And then fling out the quivering plank And watch the beggars sink. I'd like to straddle gory decks, And dig in laden sands, And know the feel of throbbing necks Between my knotted hands. Oh, I should like to strut and curse Among my blackguard crew... But I am writing little verse, As little ladies do. Oh, I...

"I wouldn't have such trouble adjusting to the world if the world made sense."

I'm reading Carrie Pilby by Caren Lissner. I identify with the main character because she's a 19-year-old genius with no friends or social skills. Except I have friends and moderate social skills. And I'm not 19. And... well, okay, I'm not a genius either. I've always thought that my thoughts would someday serve a great purpose in the world, but the more days that pass, the more unlikely it seems.

Becky has inspired me to start again.

All I do is quote

"I like living in England because everywhere else is foreign and strange. The only language I speak is English: I dropped French at school and took up hurdling with the athletic team instead. Even now, in later years, my instinctive reaction on hearing French is to jerk one leg in the air and propel myself towards low garden walls. But I wouldn't like anyone to think that I don't like Abroad. I do. Abroad means adventure and the possibility of danger and delicious food, but Abroad is also tiring and confusing and full of foreigners who tell you that the...

Apologies to Four Weddings

I am listening to the radio broadcast of the NRJ Music Awards on the radio. Phil Collins is mangling the French language, but I am so proud of him for speaking French at all. What happens at concerts where the singer doesn't speak the language? Do they just drop the between-song banter, do they do it in their native language and ignore the fact that the crowd probably doesn't understand, or is there someone there to translate? Mariah Carey is also at the awards. You may ask what I think of her. Unfortunately there I run out of words. Perhaps...

In case you haven't noticed, I like quotes

Especially ones about diaries that I can apply to my blog. Before break, I read an English translation (yes, I am lazy) of A.O. Barnabooth: His Diary, one of the best-known works of Valéry Larbaud, namesake of my lycée, vichyssois author but perhaps best known as the translator-to-French of many a famous 20th-century anglophone writer - most notably James Joyce and William Faulkner. The book is the diary of an invented character named Archibald Barnabooth, a South American millionaire who has inherited his money from his father and wanders around Europe trying to figure out what one should do with...

'The two kittens, ears flattened beneath the ribboned bonnets, looked both ridiculous and endearing.'

I have just been reading a neat little science-fictiony book by P.D. James. I thought that P.D. James only wrote mysteries and in fact, this one was in the mystery section, but then again so is The Bluest Eye, so I wouldn't really go by that. The Vichy Public Library's English books section is... creative. Anyway, The Children of Men takes place in 2021, when the human race has been afflicted with sterility and hasn't reproduced itself since 1995. People have lost interest in sex and there are a lot of unstable middle-aged women who went crazy with untapped maternal...

I bought a bag of papillotes, a French Christmas candy. They are lovely chocolates in fancy wrappers that are supposed to resemble papillons but look rather like British Christmas crackers. The chocolate is yummy and delicious, but my favorite part is that each papillote has a quote wrapped around the chocolate.

Money can so buy knives

Last night when we parted, Jennifer, Renata and I decided we should do "something" today - a "something" that might include travelling "somewhere". When we met at the train station this morning, we deliberated on a destination and finally settled on Thiers, a 45-minute bus ride away in the Puy-de-Dôme department (63). On a side note, I only just realized that the last two digits on French license plates refer to the department the car is from - thus cars from Vichy have a 03 for Allier.

The Lady and the (Little) Tramp

This afternoon, I went to see Le Dictateur, the French-dubbed version of Charlie Chaplin's talkie The Great Dictator. I had never seen one of Chaplin's films all the way through and was quite impressed, as were the two other spectators in the enormous screening room. Chaplin played Adenoid Hynkel, a dictator who was meant to resemble Adolf Hitler, and a Jewish barber with amnesia, who had just been released after 20 years in the hospital for an injury received during WWI. There was, as could be expected, a case of mistaken identity, so that the barber had the opportunity to...

Once upon a time, there was a girl who went to spend some time in a town known for its waters. When she arrived, she was very lonely. Sound familiar?

Mr Enlow was blogging

Mr Enlow was blogging about his love for poetry. I've never been much of a fan myself, mostly because of the same whiny contemporary poetry out there. The medium is short enough that people seem to be able to pump out loads of really crappy poetry, whereas, say, a novel requires much more effort. Just a theory. Just before and around the time that Pandaemonium came out, I studied up a lot on Wordsworth and Coleridge and this one appealed to me - maybe just because I like the sound of it when read aloud in an English accent: Kubla...

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

I just finished watching Close Encounters of the Third Kind. What a beautiful, lovely, wonderful movie. I don't know how I never got around to watching it before. At the beginning, it was like a horror movie or Ghostbusters or something and by the end it was beautiful - just like the characters felt: frightened, then at peace.
