Sunday, July 16

Friday Sunday Random Ten, Vive le France edition.



I am hugely embarrassed to admit that Friday, July 14, was Bastille Day and, while I got dutifully liquored up on French 75s at the Provençal bistro around the block to mark the occasion (hey, fuck you, we do have stuff like that here in Birmingham), I didn't do anything on this blog. Call me a cheese-eating surrender monkey if you must, but since this blog tipped its cap to the UK a week ago, I think it's only fair to give a shout-out to my French heritage this time around.

So raise a glass, fire up the ol' Citroën, throw that goat cheese and escargot on the grill, and pay a proper "Mon dieu!" to official Hey Jenny Slater pseudo-girlfriend Melissa Theuriau as we cook up a belated dix aléatoires de vendredi:

1. Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardót, "Bonnie and Clyde"
2. St.-Germain, "Montego Bay Spleen"
3. DJ Cam, "Success" (Thievery Corporation remix)
4. Deep Forest and Peter Gabriel, "While the Earth Sleeps"
5. Dimitri from Paris, "La Rhythme et le Cadence"
6. St.-Germain, "Land of . . . "
7. Dimitri from Paris, "Free Ton Style"
8. St.-Germain, "La Goutte d'Or"
9. Édith Piaf, "La Vie en Rose"
10. Nouvelle Vague, "Love Will Tear Us Apart"


Merry Fête de la Fédération, mademoiselle.

Hot friggin damn.... She IS so friggin beyond belief HOT. Hmmm...

Maybe Bush watches her news casts...? I mean, He can't speak, or understand, English, much less French, so maybe when he sees her, with the images of carnage and mayhem in the background, talking about the events/disasters of the day, well... maybe that's the "lap dance through the news" that gets his little weenie hard and makes him think he's biggest and best the world has ever had, and that he's spoiled the world for every president to come. He doesn't read; he doesn't pay attention to polls; Laura's too busy chain smoking to suck anything else... Of course that 's sodomy by definition and just as wrong as incest with the twins, so.... Ya think?

For irrational, imbalanced behavior, I would think there would have to be an irrational answer.

Your caption addresses her as madame- surely you have not started fantasy-dating married women?!

Oops, no, you're right. Very bad form indeed. Consider it changed. I haven't dated married women in years.

Doug - by the by, I believe "Bastille Day" to the French is "jour de fête nationale annuelle" or simpy "14 juillet", not "Fête de la Fédération". You will impress "le mademoiselle" more if you don't sound like a tourist!
