J'avais un trou dans l'pouce et j'étais carreautée.
J'me suis r'trouvée dans slush la gratte venais d'passer.
Tu comptais sur cinq doigts et tu étais gauché
Tu es tombé d'une poche sur le trottoir glacé.
J'ai faillis me noyer
Toi te faire écraser
Quand des passants dévoués nous on accroché
Moi sur un parcomètre, expiré mais quand meme...
Pour toi ce fut plus dur, sur un pique de cloture.
C'est juste une p'tite rangaine
A moitié réussit
Une histoire de mitaines plutot mal assorties
Une histoire comme j'les aimes, toute effilochée
Avec un Happy End qui vient tout rattraper.
J'te fesais des tatas de bord en bord d'la rue
Tu fesais ton tarla comme so t'avais rien vu
Une main m'a ramassé en fin d'après-midi
Poursuivant son chemin elle t'as pris toi aussi
Tout mouillés en tapon dans un sac d'épicerie
Laine contre cuir, tu m'as enfin souris
J'ai vu qu't'étais pas con, t'as vu qu'j'étais droitière
On a séchés ensemble sur le calorifère
C'est juste une p'tite rangaine
Plus ou moins réussie
Une histoire de mitaine plutot mal assorties
Une histoire comme j'les aimes, toute effilochée
Avec un Happy End qui vient tout rattraper
Je l'sais que c'est quétaine
Mais c'est l'histoire qui m'vient
L'hiver quand on s'promène pi qu'tu me tient par la main....

Seems like I'm in one of those moods when I need to share every little un-important event, detail or thought. I feel awefuly talkative. A Blog is just perfect for that, no one is forced to read really, and those around me are probably very thankful.
I can just imagine myself, during art time at the daycare..."Jeez, I DO wonder if condoms contain catnip...???"
Or at the breakfast restaurant with Sis and Bro-in-Law, "Hey Guys! Look at all the funny faces I can do!!.....Hey! By the way...You know where Valentine's day comes from???"
Anyway, the latest thing that got me thinking and slightly alarmed is what I heard a few mornings ago.
Fake sugar is probably making people more fat then the real stuff. They call it edulcorant in french, the chemical they put in diet cokes and other diet items. The very same stuff I put in my coffee even if it has a slightly nasty taste.
Well apparently, when the taste-buds detect sugar and the body isn't receiving any calories from it, The Body, like it so often does, freaks out. And lord knows how or why, starts to pile on the pounds.
Fuck! Nothing is guilt-free now!
The body has outsmarted us. We will have no choice but to eat the sugar, but cut on it or get overweight.
What's even more frustrating, is that the natural option can't even save us this time. I was often using powder from the Stevia plant, which is pretty much botanical Splenda, with no calories at all.
But the results are the same if what they say is true. Body tastes sugar, Body doesn't get it, Body freaks and fattens. Damnit!!
In other girl-talk news....Oh my god!! I think I'm totally falling in love this time! And it's been
barely two weeks....even though it feels like a much longer time.
I'm all giggly and stumbly and dreamy, like that Fergie song that's always on the radio these days...I feel so lucky.

Do you by any chance, know if preservatives...also known as rubbers (still un-opened of course!)contain some kind of substance, (perhaps catnip???)....that will make a cat suddenly go black-eyed, wild and crazy and all claws out as if you've presented it with a whole package of toy-mice??
Maybe some things will forever be unexplained......

Apparently, animators often draw with a mirror nearby, and they use their own facial expressions to render them in a more realistic way on the cartoon's face.
That's simply genius, and I've never done that....I usually go with memory and wild guesses.
So today I took a camera and had a little fun.
Yes, you may laugh!
I totally recommend that activity on a boring day, even if you don't plan on drawing cartoons anytime soon!
It will also help you to engrave in your mind which faces you should absolutely not make while your picture is being taken on other occasions.
---Oh my God!! Friday at last!
----Damnit! I'm eating way too much chocolate and crap these days!
----So sweet, Butterflies are growing each day!

And now I'm all bubbly, because this is finally something that looks sane, and positive and 100% enjoyable and comfortable.
And I've got a good, warm feeling about it.
A year ago, I had met that great guy...we went out a bit, and it was fun. But at the time, I wasn't ready to let someone in my life, and I got scared and broke it.
I always had him at the back of my mind though...he stuck there, like few people do.
Now more then a year later, we decided to give each other a chance again. It was a great decision...really is. I realise now, that even if I thought past relationships were going really good, I still never felt so at ease being with someone, in conversation or silence. And God is he pretty! And sweet!
Feeling Happy! Butterflies!

Things that make you go Mmmmmm....that make you feel at peace with the world for a moment. Heaven.
I want to compile a list of those simple pleasures and write it up somewhere in my apartment to always be reminded that life is excellent because those things exist.
Here are those that come to mind, but feel free to add, the more diverse the list, the better. It's always nice to try new things too...
-Taking a hot bath...and not just hot, *burning* hot as in lobster, even if it's totally bad for the skin and all. With bubbles and essential oils? Even better.
-Making and tasting a cup of homemade hot-chocolate. Seeing the dark chocolate pieces melt and disolve in the milk or cream....mmm.
-Listening to a song you really love at full blast and feeling it trough your body.
-Sinking into a fresh-smelling, super comfy bed with lots of heavy blankets and huge pillows after a long day. (Knowing that you don't have to wake up the next day takes it to the next level.)
-Finding when you least expect it, a beautiful piece of clothe that fits perfectly....and is on sale.
-The taste of sweet strawberries dipped into fresh whipped-cream....
...Right , your turn!

Let's take the classic "I've got nothing to wear!!!" drama that usually occurs when in a hurry to get somewhere.
We've all been there...in my case, I can be found complaining and moaning in desperation to my cats, and they don't really give a damn and just look at me benevolently like I'm beneath them and their constant state of Zen. But it's so frustrating.
To men it must seem totally insane, because most of the time, our closet is exploding with every dress and shirt and skirt immaginable, and most of them fit pretty well and are perfectly appropriate. Yet....we have nothing to wear! Can't wear *THAT*!!!
So sometimes, when things like that happen...I start to space out and think...but why....why is that so? It's not logic at all....
That's the explanation I came up with....
When we go out. We have a pre-conceived idea of what we want to project. And it's quite precise wether we realize it or not. We get all minded on a particular character, or role or persona we want to be. And it's all done in our mind, but the challenging part is creating it in reality. Finding everything to solve the puzzle. The fabric, the color, the fit, the shoes, the jewelery, the hair....they are all determined in our subconscious, but we don't know them, we must guess. Try many many combinations.
Sometimes we are lucky, or that mystery persona has been created based on a new piece of clothe and life is good. And birds are singing and we feel pretty and perfect.
But sometimes, it remains forever a mystery and we end up crying and putting on anything that is acceptable and feel off for the rest of the day or night.
And that's how, my friends, I explain this mystery.
But you know...maybe it's also simply our mind telling us that we need to go shopping ASAP.
