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!!

How I wish I was a demolisher, with flowers in my hair...

There's a building in front of my office window that is having a really tough time today. Only it's not quite in front of my office window, it's a little to the left and I can't witness its being slowly and methodically demolished, which really is a pity because there are huge windows on it, and I so wish I could see them shattering and crashing down on the pavement, instead of just hearing them. I love demolitions.

Don't get me wrong, reader, I am not heartless, I think demolition signs are sad (like when they say "This building is scheduled to be demolished on August 23rd, 2008"), because all you can do is try to imagine the ugly hole instead of that old building which has (probably) seen so many thrilling exciting events and (maybe) been the theatre of some of the most beautiful and moving love stories of our era, and kind of finally became part of the landscape and you suddenly realise that it was a symbol for the meaning of your life and you don't want it to go anymore...

But when the time comes to actually tear the thing to the ground... Yinhin (and here, imagine the dark and scary laugh of the emperor in Star Wars, just before he says "you can't just stand here forever, empty, old and crappy Saarbrückian mall!"). I just love seeing the bulldozer crunching big chunks of cement with its huge shovel, or carefully tweezing pellets of cable and wire with its freaky tweezers up front... I sooooo wish I would get to drive a bulldozer...

Maybe if I don't get into that Brussel school in year 2 I'll go crazy and start studying demolition. I'm not too much into swinging those big heavy boulders into buildings, that's not subtle enough, and besides, it can't be used in cities, for obvious safety reasons. But the crazy things you can do with a bulldozer, when it's all safe and everyone's wearing a helmet? Come on. HOURS OF FUN!!!

Aaaaaaanyway.... This post was as lame as they get, with a title from a stupid song (A punk rocker? With flowers in their hair? Are you crazy? Dead kittens, maybe!) and apparently I am about to mutate into the incredible Hulkette. I don't know where all that negative energy is coming from, but it does need to come out. Yinhin...

Je sais pas d'où ça vient mais je suis fan.

Et aussi: I heart la législation sur le copyright XD

Le souci, c'est que les vrais anglophones ils écriraient Yuhun, là, ils pensent que je regarde la version chinoise de Star Wars ^^

Mois JLAIME PAS la législation sur le copyright ! C'est trop compliqué ! Ca prend du temps de trouver des idées! Mais c'est marrant à faire quand même. Je vais proposer une collaboration à Nine, elle a beaucoup à apprendre, cette jeune fille... XD
