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!!

Life, oh life... [edit]

Well, reader, looks like I lied. I said I'd be writing here much more often now that I am in Germany, but nothing as thrilling as going to a goth club happened to me in a little while now. Here's a 5 steps update on my status, however. Because I'm sure you're dying to know.

1. I have a terrible, terrible backache going on, and I wish it would just stop already, because I'm going slowly crazy. Also, I don't know if you noticed that, but as soon as you back hurts, you want to sneeze every 5 minutes. Which only makes matters worse. Why is that, reader? Why do I have back pains NOW that the allergy season is full on? It is not nice at all.

2. My roommate M went to Switzerland yesterday to pick up the last things that were still missing in the kitchen. This means that we now have a fridge, a stove, cupboards, knives and forks and even sharp knives that you can actually use to cut onions without crying your eyes out. Ever tried to cut up an onion with a butter knife? Don't. But our new kitchen? I like it very much. Kitchens rule. I love cooking. I'll come back in a few days, and say that I don't have any ideas left, but as of right now, I love cooking and I am the stove-queen. I don't know, I seem to have something with royalty these days...

3. I have a truck-load of translations to do, which is great and will help a lot (money-wise) with my "find a dress for you brother's wedding" mission. I can't WAIT to go on THAT mission. A dress! A dress! I get to buy a dress! I love dresses! I'll try not to pick anything with tiny flowers on it. But you never know. Maybe I'll just go crazy and wear a Victorian gown and a gas-mask, like that girl I saw the other day at the gothic thingy. How about that? A Victorian gown and a gas mask... And then, once I have a dress, I'll actually go to my brother's wedding. HA HA! 5th of June! 5th of June! When will it finally be the 5th of June??

4. My room is in a terrible, terrible mess, even though I cleaned it yesterday. I don't know why this keeps happening to me, but I really, really hate it. OK today it does have a little bit to do with all the stuff my roommate brought back from Switzerland, but my "corner" of the room, with my bed in it and all, is in a terrible mess. I think some kind of evil spirit comes up in the night, while I am sleeping, kicks me in the back and messes up all my stuff. I'm pretty sure there is a Japanese ghost who does exactly that. And he's currently on vacation in Holzgerlingen. Stupid bugger.

5. I have been catching up on series the last few days. I now have seen all the latest episodes of Ashes to Ashes (not as good as it used to be, if you want my opinion), Glee (anything that sings hs got my vote) and Dr Who (I'm so glad Matt Smith is good. He really is good. He really is very very good). Series make me unreasonably happy. I still have some catching up to do on the Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother, but I just can't keep up with the breaks and stuff.

Well, here we are, reader, 5 very important news-flashes about me. I hope you are doing good, and wish you sunshine.

Hihihihi... C'est quoi la petite valise? Celle du Kabouter japonais?

Claire a dit…

C'était censé être une tasse.


"-Oooh, tu as dessiné un feu d'artifice ?

Fran a dit…

Haha, moi aussi je croyais que c'était une valise ! Bon, j'aime bien que tu sois aussi blanche que le drap, et ton fantôme japonais, en vrai, il habite chez moi.

Allez, remets-toi bien !

Nine a dit…

buuuuuuuh moi j'aime pas des masses le nouveau docteur... enfin ça va mais je trouve qu'on sent qu'il a un peu de mal à se mettre dans la peau du Docteur... mais le pire du pire c'est Amy, je la supporte pas T___T qu'est-ce que tu en penses toi ? et est-ce que tu as vu Iron Man 2 ?? (pardon je suis en mode fangirl XD )
et remet toi vite surtout !! ménage ton dos !!

Claire a dit…

Ben en fait, la vérité, c'est que je les aime beaucoup tous les deux. Mais. D'un autre côté. Je trouve qu'ils sont beaucoup, beaucoup trop différents de l'ancien docteur pour être honnête. Et trop proches de Rose et Mickey et la première saison, tout ça. Mais je les aime quand même beaucoup. Je peux quand même rester ta cousine ? (Iron man 2, j'ai vu oui ! Quelqu'un pourrait-il nous débarasser DEFINITIVEMENT de Scarlett Johannson ? Alllezzzzzz, quoi ????!! Mais c'était quand même très cool. Comme le 1, en fait. En pas mieux, mais en à peu près pareil, moins l'effet de surprise.)

Sinon, merci ! Ca va mieux, le dos, aujourd'hui ! Il a pris sa valise et est reparti vers la frontière ! Attention Fran ! Colmate les portes !!

Nine a dit…

ah oui je vois tout à fait ce que tu veux dire :) et je veux bien qu'on soit toujours cousines XD faudra que je vois avec la suite si ça va pas mieux et si le choc de la transition ne passe pas, après tout on n'a vu que 4 épisodes :)
Et c'est marrant pour Scarlett Johannson, j'ai l'impression que ça fait l'unanimité XD

Claire a dit…

Il faut admettre, la scène de kung-fu de folie avec ses bouclettes qui volent, même moi, j'me suis dit, "la classe" avant de vite me reprendre. Car non seulement elle m'énerve d'une manière générale, mais EN PLUS j'adore Pepper Potts. Rien qu'à cause de son nom... Pis d'une manière générale...
Et je me dis aussi : Dr Who, peut être, si ça se trouve, que le problème c'est le départ de Russel T Davis ? Est-ce que tu sais s'il s'occupe quand même encore de Torchwood ?
