What is this blog all about?

The main purpose of this blog is to give an overview of the things I do, in my everyday life, in order to improve my English. Since I am a very lazy person, I mostly read, and watch movies, and do things which make it possible for me to improve my vocabulary, my grammar and my accent without getting bored... So this blog is going to be about the books I read, the movies I watch, and some other things which I find relevant (or not)...

I hope you'll like it! Don't hesitate to leave comments if you have any suggestions concerning what I should write about!!

Maybe tomorrow...

Fuh reader...
I watched Crash today and I loved it and loved it. It's got to be the best movie of its kind that I have ever seen, and honestly, I think it might be one of the best movies ever shot. I should not sound too enthusiastic, in case you have not seen it, because otherwise you're bound to be disappointed. Though honestly, I hardly see how one could not love it.
It was directed by Paul Haggis, who's a famous screenwriter, and it's mostly about people in L.A. and how they deal with racism. It's a story of many characters, whose lives are changed by bigger issues, and about how they deal with it at their own little level, and how they all are, in a way or another, connected to one another. You've already seen the movie, and it was called Babel? I see what you mean. People are doing that more and more, and I always love the idea and mostly love what comes out of it. But Crash came first, and it's by far the best of the results (if you ask me. Which you did not. But I'm still telling you).
People will tell you about the scene with Thandie Newton and Matt Dillon and the burning car, and it is one of the best scenes of the movie, but it's got so many high points, it would be just about impossible to talk about them all, or tell you which of the stories touched me most, or which moment I prefered. The great thing is how believable all these people are. It makes you live the story through the eyes of many many people, and it make you see the story from sides you would never have explored otherwise, and honestly, I don't understand how a Scot can have written that all by himself. He's a genius, if you ask me. The movie's genius anyway.

If I had one little thing to say against it, it would be... but no. I'm not saying it. Maybe if you're watching the movie for the first time, you don't see it, so I'll just shut up and give my opinion to people who've seen the movie already. If you know me, I'll lend it to you, and if you're French or Belgian, you can go to the Fnac, the DVD only costs 10€ this week. Oh, and you get 3 DVD for 20€. I bought Casino Royale (the shoooooower sceeeeeene *_*) and also Children of Men to make it three (the flip-flop sceeeene °_°). Maybe I'll tell you about Children of Men in a later post. Maybe when I have checked I have not already told you about it. I'm not so sure anymore. Whoa, this blog's getting out of hand! This blog's becoming the USB stick of my brain!!

Besides that, there's not much to say, started this post with a masterpiece, ended it with "Claire's clever shopping tips", I guess I'll just go to bed now. Puh... Oh, and I did not tell you about my interview yesterday... Well, here's a picture of Jean Pierre Jouyet, if I may give you just one tip in life, it would be to Wikipediate his name.

Have a good night, and be happy. Spreaaaaaad love!! :)

PS: If this post looks ugly and the paragraphs are all cranky, please do not resent me, I'm doing my best, but Blogger has an html sickness tonight. Get well soon, Blogger!

Et là, moi je dis : non.

Mieux que Babel ?


(Quoi "j'ai pas vu Crash" ? Et alors ? Je suis moins qualifiée pour donner mon avis, peut-être ?)
