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!!

All the small things...

Hey Reader!! A new questionnaire! Questionnaire, questionnaire!!
Pick up the first book you find, go to page 18 and write down the 4th line
I had to look a little while till I found a book in English, but here goes:
"'Fair complexion', Shambu said. 'Good at cooking. Embroidery'."
Comes from Sacred Games, by Vikram Chandra. Not the best book ever, but pretty good nonetheless. Set in India.

Write down the time, without checking your watch.
Duh... I don't know... probably around 21.13. I guess.

Now check...
21.43. Crap. I missed a whole Torchwood episode already. I wanted to check it out, but it looks like I'm going to have to wait for another week.

What are you wearing?
A long sleeved grey shirt from H&M, jeans and fuzzy, blue and yellow striped slippers. Made from marshmallows. Looove my slippers. Make you feel like you are walking in a blanket.

What were you looking at before you started answering this questionnaire?
I was here. Looking for the French version of this questionnaire.
What noise can you hear, apart from that of your computer?
My mother cutting an apple pie in the kitchen (I am a lucky girl indeed) and my father talking German with a cyclotourist in the living room. He he he... At last, something interesting to write down. Well, I'm not sure it qualifies as interesting, but it surely is original.
When did you last go out? What did you do?
Well, yesterday, I went out yesterday, with friends, in Strasbourg. Went to the movies, and then went for a drink, and had a very nice time altogether. And I'll be going out again tomorrow, and then again on Monday and maybe on sunday. Loooord am I popular... Call me Glitter-girl! Call me the Dancing Queen!
Did you dream last night?
No. I did not sleep last night because I had a terrible toothache. I day-dreamed about knocking all the teeth out of my own mouth. I day-dreamed about killing my dentist. I day-dreamed about Nurofen. I wondered if Paul Bettany would be a good dentist, and then the pain!! Oooh! The pain went away!! (Just kidding). But I did not actually dream. I ached. Loooord is my life tough...
When did you last laugh?
I laugh pretty often. Can't remember when I last laughed, because it was probably for something extremely stupid and 5 minutes ago.
What can you see on the walls, from where you are sitting?
An old painting, of a courtyard in winter, grey and depressing, which I like very much and has been here forever. A painting of a tree by a river made by my great-aunt. Paintings by my grand-mother. Paintings, paintings all over.
If you were to become a bilonnaire overnight, what would be the first thing you bought (That's kind of tough to translate... The first thing you'd buy? The first thing you buyed?)
A cocktail dress. And a sari. And jewellery. DVD packs for my favourite series. Clothes. A new mobile phone, and then I could trample mine to death. HA HAHAHAHAHA if I were to become a billionnaire overnight, I would buy the WORLD! Clean out Vivienne Westwood in my Galliano gown! Think what that money could bring! I'd buy everything! Yeah I'd have all the money in the world, if I was a wealthy girl!

What's the last movie you saw?
Wall-e. Übercute. I was all melted down.

Have you seen something weird today?
Oh, yes, yes, I have. Many music videos (How weird can you get, really...) and then... I don't know... My father's speaking german with a cyclotourist in the living room right now...
What do you think about this questionnaire?
Think? I never.
Tell us something about you that we don't know yet
I am the next James Bond girl. They don't know it yet either.
What would you name your child if she was a girl?
Elizabeth. Or Mathilde. I like these. But then again, I also like Kajal. Not only because of the actress, I just think it sounds great.
And if he was a boy?
I like David and Samuel. How original! How Old-Testament!
Have you ever thought about living in a foreign country?
Uh... yeah...
What would you like God to tell you when you reach heaven's doors?
"Yes indeed, my dear girl, everything here is edible."
If you could change something in the world, apart from guilt and politics, what would it be?
Climate. Put a little green in the desert. And I would cancel slugs.
Do you like dancing?
YEAH! Watch me groove! I move like lighting! Watch me set fire to the dancefloor!! Move both your feet and run to the beat!! Not quite. As I mentionned before, I love dancing, but am not very good at it, and I'm 6 feet tall, and being the tallest girl on a dancefloor is extremely embarrassing.
Georges Bush?
Is the question "Do you like George Bush" or is George Bush so puzzling that he is a question in itself?

What is the last thing you saw on TV?
Some kind of German thing set during WWII. I was trying to record Torchwood, and failed. Can anybody tell me if Torchwood is worth all these troubles?

There you go, reader! Now your turn!

Claire a dit…

Ben quoi? C'est super ressemblant pourtant! La finesse du trait, tout ça tout ça... XD

Aussi, pour quiconque serait intéressée, je plaide non coupable en matière de mise en page merdique.

Marion a dit…

Purée je viens juste de comprendre que c'est un slug.

J'avais pas tout compris.


Pour la mise en page, justement, j'aurais besoin d'un conseil. Je t'appellerai peut-être ce soir (si je ne m'endors pas au bureau)
