Le Prénom : fantastic French movie!

So the last time I blogged about a French movie was a while ago, 2010 in fact, about the movie Le Nom des Gens. Well, I recently saw another  film, called Le Prénom, that I felt was worthy of praise on my blog. What is it about French movies that have something about names in the title?!? LOL! Read more →

The train : What a way to go! (On vacation)

I like LOVE taking the train. I used to love taking planes, but then we all became terror suspects and it’s now a frustrating experience where your rights, dignity and security always seem at stake. So if I can, I take the train. It’s relaxing, no rush, no panic, no stress, you have space to travel in comfort and it’s… Read more →

Toujours lasse de traduire un article pour mon billet « Friday en français » je prends l’occasion pour partager avec vous encore une histoire drôle de ma vie d’expatriée à Paris.

Alors cette histoire remonte aussi à… Read more →

Friday en Français : phrase utile

Dans mon travail avec des étudiants qui viennent à Paris pour un séjour linguistique, je leur apprends dès le premier jour de leur séjour quelques éléments qui sont essentiels pour leur sécurité à Paris. L’une de ces choses étant comment appeler à l’aide en français, car je me souviens clairement d’un incident de ma première année ici :j’en aurais bien… Read more →

Friday en français : Cocorico

.Le concept : traduire un ancien billet et français, déjà pour pratiquer mon français à l’écrit mais aussi pour faire un geste envers mes lecteurs et lectrices francophones!

Keep a clone in Paris

I think Rick Owens really loves Paris. He’s always here! Or at least it looks like he is. LOL! I was showing a colleague who was in town the Serge Lutens boutique at the Palais Royal galleries, and as we were waiting for the perfume to develope on his arms (he tested several), we strolled around the covered gallery to… Read more →

Costs you a quarter!

A quarter is 25 cents of American change… it used to be that you could purchase things for a quarter or under a quarter. Not anymore really. Let’s see… In 1942 you could get a bottle of Coca Cola for 5 cents. In 1955 you could get fresh roasted penauts at Ebbet’s Field to watch a Dodgers baseball game, for… Read more →

The necessary

Ok, so this is going to be a less than glam post…hahaha, but I thought it would be funny (as well as useful). Some people say that in Paris, people pee in the street. There do seem to be quite a lot of people (mostly men for anatomical reasons) who do so usually in the evening (probably after a few… Read more →

Mac Attack

I was having an email conversation with Sab of Paris Set Me Free, about macarons and his annoyance at how everyone is talking about them. I don’t know if I talk about them too much, I certainly love to make them, but the conversation made me recall a story that happened to me last summer. I hope you find it… Read more →
