No coffee for them Frogs! (Late July 29th 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…… Continue reading No coffee for them Frogs! (Late July 29th FFF)

Yoga, anyone?

. Today I was listening to someone who was talking about practicing ”yoga chaud”. I had heard about it several times before, but only today did my brain connect the dots, the way it loves doing it. See, ”Yoga chaud” (in French, of course), can translate into two very different disciplines; hot yoga and drunk…… Continue reading Yoga, anyone?

Vintage Notes…

. . I hadn’t intended on writing anything when publishing my new Vintage Notes’ posts when I started them.  I had just bought an old type-writer from a flea market, and since typing on it is so noisy, I wanted to use it for short thoughts only, first. But I think I owe you a…… Continue reading Vintage Notes…

Cyranny’s Jukebox…

  Sometimes, old loves come back to tickle your heartstrings, without a warning. RoBERT is a French singer that had to mourn her first passion (professional dancing) because of health issues. She was (and I hope still is) good friends with my absolute favorite writer, Amélie Nothomb, who immortalized her in one of her novels.…… Continue reading Cyranny’s Jukebox…

Micro poésie du vendredi…

  Petite, insignifiante poussière de rien… J’ai cherché leurs louanges voulu être idolâtrée pour que l’espace d’un moment tu sois fier de te tenir à mon côté.   Mon royaume pour un sourire, Toute ma gloire pour un soupir, de toi.

Tirez…

Not an unusual sight… at least in Montréal.   I mean the sign on the door. “Tirez” It always catches my eye. Most people are now oblivious to the possible misunderstanding it could provoke. Not me. Quick French class… The verb “Tirer” can mean two very different things… “to pull” or “to shoot”. Do you…… Continue reading Tirez…

Cyranny’s Jukebox…

  You already know how I tend to have ear worms all the time… This one is a regular, and it is ok, because I like it a lot… I had it on my mind all day today. So click play if you want to feel what it is like to be me, LOL I…… Continue reading Cyranny’s Jukebox…

Micro poésie du vendredi

    Aujourd’hui j’aimerais pouvoir découper délicatement ton âme sur le pointillé, et faire de toi deux êtres parfaitement semblables, Pour que ton coeur n’aie plus jamais à souffrir de ne pas être ailleurs…

Don’t boss me around…

Out of bed early. For me. Freja’s been fed (a must to be able to do anything else) and I am on the couch in my pjs, staring at both my tablet and the tv screen.   Thinking about this and that, really not worth discussing right now… When I notice the constant message displayed…… Continue reading Don’t boss me around…
