Bonsoir à tous.

Harry Potter tomorrow! Yay.

Horribly embarassing, today! I always sound like a retard when recorded, even in English, which is why I literally flee the kitchen when mom plays a message I had left. So today, in TPE (travaux.... something, shit, I don't know, something group-project), another group that's doing their project on the differences between French and American newspapers, interviewed me and recorded me. I sounded RETARDED! Like literally, retarded!

I'm out of the closet. I prefer American or Anglophone newspapers to French papers.

French newspapers are like the New York Times, which I only read the headlines of because it's so radically different from what the Commercial Appeal says that it's funny. But they don't have pictures, no huge headlines, and a billion little words on one page. Takes an hour to read!

But papers like USA Today, International Herald Tribune, and, just for the style, the Commercial Appeal, those are genius. Kudos to my mother, who has received the gratitude of 5 good looking French boys. I donated the CA she gave me on the coverage of Katrina to demonstrate our huge photos and headlines, and it was like I gave them a golden ticket.

Oh but people, it was so sweet!!! I already told the story to my mom, but yesterday my best friend orchestrated a surprise party for me, and got literally everyone (including the dean! and the principal! and my calculus teacher!)in on it for a week! It was amazing. Cried when I read everything that everyone had written in the card!!! The girls were crying too, so sad. Everyone asks me if I will be triste de partir, and yes, I will be very sad to leave them. They're my friends!!!!! And so many of them, too. So, today's song lyrics go to my friends, who don't have a link to this LJ, but whatever. Alors, pour Tracy, Carole, Charlotte, Jennifer, Valentine, Florian, Hugues, Marie H, Emilie, Cécile, Ophélia, Sabrina, Amélie, Camille F, Flore, Guillaume, Antoine, Amandine, Constance, Manu, Emmanuelle, Amandine 2, Justine, Camille K, Marie-Laure, Alexis, Alexia, Miriam, Valérie, Klyrianne, Cyrianne, Marie K, Stéphy, Marie-Claire, et Jéssica, c'est pour vous!

"Time of Your Life" by Greenday
C'est une chanson typique pour la cérémonie pour recevoir les diplômes à la fin de lycée, et je souhaite de pouvoir finir lycée avec vous, et prendre le bac quandmême, mais il faut partir! Alors, parce que je ne peux pas rester et finir avec vous, voici une chanson de "graduation."

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

So take the photographs, and still frames in your mind
Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time
Tattoos of memories and dead skin on trial
For what it's worth it was worth all the while

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

:-D

Merde, je vais pleurer!

Attractive feature about AUP of the day: I will lose my French if I stay in America. Similarly, I have started to have to search for words in English, for example, when a tourist came up to me for directions today and we start talking, he asks if I could speak English because that's easier for him. Turns out he was German. So I'd be speaking English and it would get like randomly interrupted by French, just because I'm so used to it. So after 8 months in America, I'd be ok to return, but doing college in the Etats-Unis and not France? It will be like starting from square one whenever I get back here!

C'est tout pour ce soir.

Je vous aime et il reste que huit jours!

I remain, etc.

I would like my livejournal audience to be the first people I give my holiday greetings to.

Alors, Merry Christmas to everyone!

I am aware that I don't have any Jews in my livejournal audience, but Happy Chanukah anyways!

L'Chaim!

Well, if you're after a jew(ess) for your audience, Amanda (girl from the SAT) is on anima_maxima.

I love how the Wall Street Journal has long-ass titles and tiny pictures- makes me feel smarter reading it. Big pictures make me feel like I've been given one of those activity placemats that come with the children's menu.

Do they have children's menus in France? If so, what's on them?

Nobody has used the term Jewess since Sir Walter Scott, circa 1600 AD.

I read the Financial Times on airplanes for similar reasons...

Children's menus at actual restaurants are the same as ours. In referencing newspapers, however, il n'y a que le International Herald Tribune. It's my favorite newspaper in the entire world, but, to be honest, it is a little activity placemat. Every other paper is like The Wall Street Journal or the New York Times.

:-D!

I was planning on giving my best friends individual lettres, and I was going to write those lyrics in Charlotte's, because she can understand English a bit and Greenday is her favorite band.

glad you liked it!
