Follow me! (May 27th late FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback!

Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date, years before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I decided to participate…

So here it is!

Written on May 27th of 2016, when The Cove was just a couple of months old, here’s little piece of humor, about the act of following (and a lot more). It made me grin to re-read it, because again today, a person that had been following my blog for years, had to re-follow me, thanks to WP’s glitches (Welcome back, Anne 😉 ).

So, yeah… It might be harder to follow me than I used to think.

I hope you’ll enjoy it (again), and I wish you’re safe and well, wherever you are…



Some people say I am hard to follow. That is not true! If you look at the bottom of your screen, you’ll see a rectangle with the word “follow” written in it… Just click on it, and you’ll instantly be following me. See?? Not hard at all!

Let me just go to the bathroom for a sec… I really feel like taking a steaming hot bath! And since our hot-water tank is of lilliputian proportions, I always have to draw my baths in two or three shots.

Did you hit the “follow” button yet? No?

I am just back from Denmark. You know that? I just mentionned it for those not following me… They didn’t know, you see? So, yeah, just back from three weeks spent in Denmark. 21 days, for those of you not too keen on maths, or not quite a month. Everything is about perspectives…

I am watching a TV cooking show in which the weekly guest helps the TV host cooking a recipe while taking Vodka shooters… I am not actually drinking, just in case you wondered. Well… That wasn’t 100% honest, I am drinking. Milk. But that’s not really important here.

What about that “follow” button? Playing hard to get, uh?

I really like lavender bubble baths… although my favorite flower is lillac. I don’t recall ever coming across lillac bubble bath stuff. That’s sad. I’ll have to check that up sometime. I’d take a note, but my post its are in my backpack, and I don’t feel like getting up just yet… Maybe when I go back to the bathroom.

When I was in Fyn, one of Denmark’s largest Islands, lillac was most probably the most commun flower to be found… And the lillac trees had just bloomed. It was sooooo beautifull! And the whole island smelled like heaven. Well, the part of it I’ve visited, at least!

I brought an elephant back from my dream trip. It might sound incredible, especially when you think about how little place I had in my bag to bring back gifts for chéri and my family. You don’t have to beleive everything I say… I do have a slight tendency to lie recently.

Oh, come on! It doesn’t cost a penny to follow me! Or any kronner, or even øre for that matter…

The guys are making fish & chips… But I highly doubt it will look anywhere close to the picture they showed in the cooking book. They mainly just drink shooters and fool around…

I missed taking baths in Denmark.

When I went grocery shopping yesterday night, the cashier girl complained in my face because it was 20h45, they were closing at 21h, and obviously, it seems that it is now incredibly rude to shop just before closing time in Québec. I must have missed something while out of the country…

Ok, time to go to the bathroom again… Just “like” my post in the meanwhile… If you are still not sure enough about the “following” option, alright?

BRB, as we used to say in  good old mIRC times… But that’s a bit off subject. (it meant “be right back”)

Back! (we didn’t write just “B” in the nineties, we wrote “back”. Yeah, the whole word. One doesn’t always need to save time, you know?) Oh dang! I forgot the post its!!

When I got back from the airport, wednesday, chéri was at work. Which gave me a few hours to think about where I could put my Danish-elephant-Souvenir. I didn’t want to have to explain to chéri who had given it to me, and why it was so dear to my heart… But it was taking quite some place in the apartment. I had to give it some thought.

Maybe I could put it in our fighting room. You don’t know what that is? Easy, I live alone with chéri, and we have a second bedroom that could be used in case of a major fight, to make sure the living room is always available for TV watching and internet surfing with Freja! (That’s my cat’s name… if you haven’t been following)

Talking about TV, I was right, the dudes in my TV show ended up with a horrible platting of those wannabe fish & chips… But they were quite funny to watch all the same!

Oh, when  mentionned the grocery store, it was just to bring up a craving I had for maple syrup beans… Here is a picture, because, yes, I was lazy enough to eat it straight from the box!




I actually noticed something I have been doing for years without even thinking about it. Like every respectable Canadian household, we own a microwave oven. I don’t use it on a regular basis… Just when I feel lazy, let’s say, in the presence of delicious maple syrup beans for an example!

EVERY time I end up using a microwave, no matter what I have to reheat, I always put two and a half minutes on the integrated timer. Sometimes, my meal gets out way too hot to be eaten right away (like my beans) or sometimes, the food is still barely warm, forcing me to put it in for a second two and a half minutes, and then being extremely hot…

Hot… Time to go back to the bathroom again… If I want my bath to be hot too. Yeah… It is probably time to go lazy-out in my lillac-free bath, thinking about my Danish-elephant-Souvenir, and waiting for your Likes with a little luck…

And don’t forget to hit that “follow” button, ok? Because, I am really not that hard to follow…

I don’t know why I feel so tired suddenly… Probably the jetlag. Most probably….
