from raven72d :
How are you these days?
from raven72d :
My diary is open again...please do read and comment...
from raven72d :
Tell me what it's like to be a homeowner in France... I'm just moving from my father's old house to a flat. It's strange--- inheriting one-third of a house, then selling it and boxing up a house my family were in for thirty years. [My username/password: raven72d/capybara] I hope you're doing well...
from raven72d :
Do write sometime soon...
from raven72d :
Happy Toussaint!
from raven72d :
How's life?
from raven72d :
try username/password = raven72d/capybara to access me... *sigh*...married...i do miss the single you... but-- congratulations on everything!
from raven72d :
Do write...
from raven72d :
I love the photo at your new photo page: you look leggy and tall and slender and lovely.
from raven72d :
28.02.06-- Do send me an e-mail...
from raven72d :
Thank you for the kind thoughts... And I do miss your letters and e-mails...
from raven72d :
21. Feb. 06-- I do miss you...
from katanabright :
02.07.2006 - so - are you posting here no longer? Or only taking a break? I understand you are using the other site for the photos, but ? Anyway - with best wishes for you, j
from raven72d :
where have you been on holiday...
from raven72d :
I so need a pocket theodolite and a topographic map of Balkh'...
from raven72d :
What a pity! Everyone needs an Armoured Fighting Vehicle.
from raven72d :
I hope they let you keep the tank.
from owndecadence :
i will consult you when i need help with my french homework...
from dangerspouse :
Ooo, a fortuitous click on a banner carried me here. Hey - "political propaganda in 19th century Norwich street literature" certainly sounds interesting to ME. Of course, maybe that's why I have no friends....
from raven72d :
Ahhh... try eroto.com for elegant porn photos/e-cards... And all those roundabouts-- yes, dizzying.
from inkdragon :
Ugh! I missed your birthday. So ... Happy Birthday! I hope you had a wonderful day.
from raven72d :
It just struck me that you actually are renting a house with a man... Yes-- I am a bit jealous. But it's more that I'm amazed that you met someone and were able to decide to live together so quickly. It's not something any girl is likely to do with me.
from raven72d :
Happy Birthday, lovely one!
from inkythistle :
Happy birthday! Your birthday is just three days before mine-- 10 June. Hooray for us summer babies!
from raven72d :
Aloysius was a wonderful Oxbridge bear. And I like little bears who ride on donkeys or small, shaggy ponies.
from raven72d :
Teddy Bears are our friends and companions-- see Alolysius in Waugh's "Brideshead Revisited"... And they make excellent travel companions.
from inkdragon :
VERY cool photo on your profile.
from buddhawhoa :
because Oprah is the epitome of a successful independent woman, and Stephen King has hordes of fans that will probably kill if he asks. MUHAHAHAHHA. For some reason I couldn't post that in your guestbook. :P
from rioja :
so very dirty, so very funny
from raven72d :
Louis XVI had to be effectively circumcized to deal with phymosis...
from raven72d :
Merci, lovely one! And I'll be reading along with you as you reach 600... Do write soon-- and send more photos!
from imamsbelle :
Thanks for adding me to your favorites. I enjoy your phrases of the day. Hope you have a good day. :)
from marredhope :
nice read... thanks
from mlkncoffee :
I ran across your dairy and i just wanted to let you know i was adding you so i can learn dirty phrases in french. :)
from inkdragon :
Happy Valentine's Day
from raven72d :
Acard from Bretagne would be great... Rouen is a lovely ville. But...do write and tell me about New Years....
from virginistic :
you know what would be great? if you'd give us the pronunciation of these french cuss words. i really would like to be able to say some of these at school.
from raven72d :
You must write me about Brittany.
from raven72d :
Ever since reading the "Dr. Fu Manchu" novels of Sax Rohmer, I've suspected that all Chinese may be robots.
from raven72d :
Is it full of *real* Chinese or Disney Chinese? Are any of them....robots?
from raven72d :
Paris has a Chinatown?
from raven72d :
write me all about them... and do take more photos!
from raven72d :
How was the New Years adventure?
from samedi :
Signmyguestbook.com is indeed a major pain in the arse right now. Anyway, I fixed the link so the picture actually shows up now. Although I will admit that I had to have a friend help me figure out what was wrong!
from raven72d :
Let me know if a small card finds its way to Nemours...
from raven72d :
The Amalekites are a people in the Old Testment whom Yahweh orders the Israelites to smite utterly. It's the one passage in the Bible I know by memory-- Yahweh's orders about just *how* (and how thoroughly) to smite the Amalekites for their sins.
from raven72d :
The American equivalent of asking for too much may be "--and you want fries with that?"
from clairecav :
You rock! You're so funny and groovy. I came across your diary on alonereviews.diaryland.com... you got a much better review than me =( Anywayz, just to tell you, you're added to my faves. Now your life is complete I bet.
from neekbreeker :
hey.. it didn't work to send an e-mail but i really would like a nice french christmas card.. so this is my adress: Kjersti Austdal Joavegen 115 4050 Sola Norway okay.. i'm counting on that you send me a mail now! *Big hopeful eyes*
from raven72d :
Not yet...
from raven72d :
Merci, ma belle!
from blueeyes76 :
Hello ! Merci pour ton message et merci à toi d'écrire...Take care xo
from justcamille :
I just came across your diary and I am glad I did. I hope you dont mind but I saved you so that I can read when you update. Even though you're writting in english, I still get the french feeling.
from raven72d :
The two words work out to be the same in practice, no? Saints with breasts, areola=aureole=halo-- it's all fairly similar, hmmmm....?
from pigment :
thank you... here is the kiss. (though, i would say "putain" is great for "fuck"... i think it does well... no?)
from samedi :
Out of curiosity - when the euro was introduced, whatever happened to all the francs that were in circulation ?? Hm. You know, I could probably look this up myself (and I probably will), but if you happen to know, I wouldn't mind hearing at all!
from raven72d :
Lovely, lovely poem!
from amercncliche :
Ta journal est tres chouette... c'est mon lame attempt to speak French five minute after I woke up. I like all the swearing. Swearing is very important. :)
from virany :
Merci ^_^!!!!!!!
from beagle47 :
i sure like the new template. but, ah, that banner -- just something about that i simply cannot resist! ;) hope all is well, ladi'.
from cdghost :
it was cool..reading this..take care
from cindie-loo :
honey, i just warmed up some leftover chicken, shall i wrap some up in some tinfoil for you?
from samedi :
Ah, don't worry - I appear to be perfectly alright. Save for my new distrust towards all motorists ...
from raven72d :
I keep wondering where the ducks are hiding.
from raven72d :
Even if you sound it the French way, it's still a great noise to repeat four times in a row.
from raven72d :
Loing! Loing! It makes a great noise... Vaguely metallic...or something a small alien pet would say.
from raven72d :
Nemours, eh?
from raven72d :
E-mail any new address...
from raven72d :
Mailbox in the real world. Paper is always better than a screen.
from raven72d :
Watch your mailbox.
from raven72d :
I was never *not* talking to you...
from ghanima :
read your note to raven--I run Les Singes Furieux and I don't think I have a monopoly on anything--in fact, I have stopped updating the site because I hated being so mean. So please don't be so venomous--nor did I say anything particularly mean to raven. I'm really not a mean person. I'm nice. really.
from aquatigrl :
I have another dLand I use [this one's just kind of for keeping track of passwords & when I'm in really bad moods], http://aquatang.diaryland.com
from cindie-loo :
hey you, hope you feel better!
from miklusz :
Please, visit my website and leave the note. I've started to prepare the English version, and I'm waiting for you opinion and suggestions! http://miklusz.prv.pl
from beatnikgrrl :
I'm your 100th reader? Excellent! If you'd like to check out my blog, I tend to write more at http://pretentious.holyfools.net than on diaryland anymore. :) I love your diary, it's the first good journal I've came across in quite a while!
from gumphood :
I really liked that pole. I found you via the banner. I mean it. I really liked that poll. wow. I don't know why. You stuck a correct cord with me. I am not being sacrcastic.
from jbpeanut91 :
can i have your pass word? tell me in my notes.
from captainron :
Did you delete the part that said, delete this part in the email address? Hmmm... I thought all French women were cute... I bet you still are too.
from captainron :
Guestbook has been a real pain for me too lately. It keeps telling me that I can't sign that fast, even if I have yet to sign once. Quell domage... I've always wondered if the picture in yoru profile was a self portrait or just some random picture. BTW, you can always email me at RonEXP(delete this part)@AOL>com Bon Mardi sp?
from wllybere :
I hope everything's ok, I've missed your entries. Keep in touch, ok? ~~Paige
from beagle47 :
thank you so much. she was a professional photographer and teacher all of her life (sound like anyone we know?). she would have loved your work(s). peace.
from luciejade :
Hey, think you should spend some money on the new CD 'Jolitie' the happiest most unpretencious music Ive heard in a long time. Well worth a listen.
from beagle47 :
finally, the banner! i thought it was a wonderful improvement! ;) in the zen spirit, "hope all is." well, peace. (and i really mean that).
from raven72d :
Guadeloupe as Outremer... I do love that image... When you're in the forests of Bourgogne, will you miss Outremer?
from raven72d :
Outremer was the name for the Crusader Kingdoms in the Proche-Orient... Knights Templar wore rings with "Outremer" inscribed inside.
from genius182 :
I LOVE your french swear word of the day. My friends and I take french at school, but ya know they never bother to tell us the important stuff! lol ;)
from ineednoname :
Oops! Sorry. I don't know why I always get people's sexes mixed up. I changed it though. :)
from bluesunrisen :
Dude, I haven't even known your Diary for more than two weeks, so gimme a break! Happy Birthday, Dude! Hope you have prosperous and joyous years to come! Ciao, Mangoh
from samedi :
Ah, I'm so sorry! Happy belated birthday!!
from diary-viewer :
Would you like a new diary review? If so, check out the site at diary-viewer.diaryland.com/
from raven72d :
322,000 sexual positions? That's splitting hairs all on its own-- a bit too Scholastic for me. I think my list of favorites isn't much more than two dozen-- though costumes, locations, scenarios, and rituals can make that much larger. "The notary's necktie"?? Hmmm... I suspect the English equivalent is "pearl necklace"-- for semen ejaculated on a girl's neck and throat...
from raven72d :
I like Baron Samedi, the death-god of voudoun... It must be the top hat he wears.
from quelquechose :
Your diary/journal/'blog is groovy. I don't think I can summon up much French from the depths of my memory, but let's see..."Il y a une vache dans l'arbre!" "J'ai peur des poissons-rouges!" Er...right, then. A bientot, cherie!
from springfever :
j;aime beacoup son blog. C'est cool. Continuez! :) (isn't my french just horrible? ;) )
from beagle47 :
no apologies necessary! i expect to be edited...i've made a career of it. i will look and click. oh, by the way, it was the French lesson(s) amongst other kindly e-correspondence. peace.
from cabrioler :
I believe that your la cravate de notaire in english would be a ' tit fuck ' sounds so much nicer in french
from hope-street :
SACRE BLU!
from bluesunrisen :
I like your diary. I think I'll add it to my list, if you dont mind. Au Revoir!
from virany :
Bonjour! ^_^ Merci pour les encouragements! C'est super sympa!
from samedi :
Fnac is indeed quite wonderful. Out of curiosity, are used book/cd stores very common or popular in France? I spent most of my time there visiting smaller towns, so I haven't a clue ...
from raven72d :
And I just may write another one tonight.
from raven72d :
Let me know if a letter arrives.
from bluering :
damn, and i thought it was cool when i get google hits for "mary kate and ashley olson doing each other porn".
from raven72d :
Grading exams... I have to have 3 classes done for Monday... Plus I have a project for the law firm... And now I'll be imagining you lying on my bed in tropic sunlight... (I hope the ankle is better, by the way...)
from raven72d :
Ah-- but je recognized you! And how was your weekend?
from raven72d :
one L, one P... developed. But my imagination is always good. And the world is stranger than you think... Werewolves and their frends *do* shop at supermarkets, the Manx are descended from hideous batrachian undersea creatures, the people in the next flat are conducting strange seances with lost spirits...
from raven72d :
Perhaps he was buying the sanitary napkins to use as bandages for an injured werewolf-- a Pacte des Loups thing.
from mewlips :
Aah! french swear words! You are very useful for my future french class. Mucho lovely.
from cindie-loo :
cows peeing is one of the funniest things i have ever seen..and heard for that matter...it just sounds like someone dumping a barrel of water. they must have huge bladders.
from raven72d :
It's one of the stories in the same collection as "Tontine"-- "13 Tales"?
from raven72d :
My favorite Balzac... "Girl With the Golden Eyes"...
from virany :
Salut! Merci, pour ton message! ^_^ C très sympa de ta part... * * * Et au sujet de Paris (il y a 2 semaines... je sai je répond un peu tard), c'était super (mis à part le mauvais temps), j'ai apprécié de retourner dans le 13ième arrondissement (et manger des dim sum... ^.^).. C'est domage que mon séjour fut si bref... (3 jours - pas en entier)
from gay-n-out :
Kathie Lee Gifford is this really annoying woman who used to co-host a talk show on tv. She also designs a clothing line for the wal-mart stores. She actually got busted a few years ago because her clothes were being made in sweat shops. I hate the woman. really I do.
from virany :
Paris c'est génial... ^_^ (mais mon voyage était trop court T_T)
from raven72d :
I'm deathly allergic to cheese...and tomato.
from raven72d :
The two older aircraft carriers-- the Foch and the Clemenceau --had a certain raffish charm.
from raven72d :
I'd hoped to see Leclerc tanks and Mirage 2000 fighters in action in Iraq. Not only is Chirac spineless (and committed to his 1970s idea of Iraq as France's strategic partner in the Middle East), he's depriving me of seeing new toys in action!
from raven72d :
Hmmm... Paris is so central to France and its identity that I don't know what the anti-Paris would be... Marseilles? No. Aix-en-Provence? Too small... I'll have to think about this.
from raven72d :
Transparent skirts...bad for faculty, mandatory for tall, leggy students.
from raven72d :
Well, yes... I looked this up. It costs $0.80 to send a letter to Guadeloupe, not the $0.65 I thought... Ooops. I'll fix that.
from djchrissy :
well, you know... I couldn't help myself :) Have a great weekend,
from raven72d :
Ah, yes... I've had girls in short skirts on winter evenings complain of a...frost...problem. But a church in Normandy, chill beneath your skirt or not, is usually a vur' lovely thing to see in the grey and cold.
from raven72d :
As a male with particular interests, I always discourage lovely girls from wearing or traveling with underwear... But I do envy you your skill at traveling light. I'm almost Victorian in my over-packing habits.
from raven72d :
Funny thing-- I've read St.-Exupery's books about flight, but never Le Petit Prince. It's something I've always meant to do, though.
from raven72d :
I remember doing the same thing with a French dictionary and St.-Exupery's "Vol de nuit"...
from beagle47 :
the lady inquired "is that chien tête or chien tété?" and the "chien" (dog) responds "er, the one that translates to head, as the English translation should be dog-head." my poor chien is probably running around with some really offensive French name, isn't he? and to think, he's such a sweet beast.
from beagle47 :
speaking of bad French, did i ever mention my chocolate lab's name? chien tete. apologies to French speakers the world over. oh, and peace to them as well.
from raven72d :
*sigh*... E-mail me your mailing address again, and I'll try a second letter. perhaps I should put "Guadeloupe, French West Indies" instead of just Guadeloupe...
from raven72d :
Bubbles are wonderful... Did my letter ever get to Guadeloupe?
from beagle47 :
p.s. from now on it's all English. I fear I've offended an entire nation of decent people with my weak attempts at writing French. Sincere apologies...
from beagle47 :
annoyed by banners? well, most, but not yours. in fact, quite the opposite. i can't resist them even though i know they are yours by the creative "signatures." so there is no misunderstanding: your banners are tres cool and your diary entries are equal to the bait. love the French swear words...peace.
from raven72d :
I take a very Edmund Burke view of the Jacobins... Or maybe a de Maistre view. Now I can't see myself in Paris 1780, flirting in the galleries of the Palais-Royal with girls in low-cut gowns and faces painted white, but I can see myself as inhabiting a decaying manor house in Brittany or Guyenne, ordering in crates of books from Paris, living on my rents, and wishing I had the income to buy a commission in the heavy cavalry of the Maison du roi... I make a very good provincial noble, a vicomte with a title going back to Louis the Spider but no real money, and a great dark manor house slowly falling into ruin...
from raven72d :
Does it count that I stamp all my letters with a fleur-de-lis and "le roi le veult"?
from beagle47 :
the more things change the more they stay the same. i assume your student was in the back row...
from cheshireluci :
how do you pronounce "C'est quoi c'te bordel"? i'd like to say "what the fuck!" in French. twould be fun.
from cheshireluci :
I wanted to say thank you for signing my Guestbook! Maybe you can come back and try to sign my Guest Map again sometime? I don't know why it wouldn't work. I'd like to fill the whole thing up! Wouldn't that be neat? I got giggly and excited when you signed. Thank you!
from veraverteld :
Thanks for leaving a note :) I can imagine that it's kind of anoying if you get added to someones favorite and you can't read anything about them because it's in a foreign language you don't know. *grin* Sorry for that. I live in the netherlands and my diary is written in dutch. Just to give you a small (very small)impression.. Vera is my name and 'verteld' means 'tells' .. so my diary name means Vera tells...(her stories). :)
from raven72d :
I'll have to try again... I'd hate to think that a letter vanished on its way to the French West Indies.
from raven72d :
Losing one's profile... Really more Tibetan than Zen, maybe...
from beagle47 :
hello...my anonymous note was completely unintentional. however, glad we found each others' diary, and thanks for sleuthing!
from raven72d :
I looked at those photos and suddenly wanted camel's-milk ice cream.
from raven72d :
Have you received a small letter in Guadeloupe? And... lovely image of you behind the camera... Odd note of similarity: as an undergraduate, I walked out of a dormitory late one night just in time to discover a boy who'd jumped from the 12th floor and landed in the shrubbery... British street-crime literature of the 19th-c.? The original Spring-Heeled Jack stories?
from raven72d :
I favor the Orange Martini-- Stoli Oranj vodka and Cointreau...
from raven72d :
"Turnip"... interesting choice. Personally-- I find that beets are the most vile of all vegetables...
from raven72d :
Alas-- the ink smeared on your return address in Guadeloupe-- could you e-mail it to me?
from raven72d :
I just got a letter from the French Antilles today... Merci!
from raven72d :
If you ever see it-- rent a small film called "CQ"... It's a delight-- a vur' pretentious French "revolutionary" filmmaker in 1969 is making a kind of sci-fi/spy/Barbarella film set in 2001... Vur' funny!
from raven72d :
I for once certainly believe you're worth more than that!!
from raven72d :
Amelie was a delight!!! We all need a friend like Amelie!
from raven72d :
Pacte de loup was a good action/horror film... I don't expect the plots to be...ummmm...logical. But it was fun... though (see my diary entry for today) the wolf did resemble a small stegosaurus...
from raven72d :
Beware the evil Belgians! They plan to make us all eat chocolate mayonnaise! And of course the loathsome Manxmen, who are batrachian deep sea creatures and spawn of Cthulhu!
from raven72d :
I just so miss living places where I could walk to the metro/U-bahn/subway...
from raven72d :
I tend to feel ashamed and guilty when stuck in traffic. I always think it's my *fault* for not planning better...
from raven72d :
Good... I'll look for a copy to rent this weekend...
from raven72d :
The little film sounds interesting indeed...
from egg-nog :
ah! you un-masked me! *throws confetti* too smart to fool ^.^
from raven72d :
Racine or not... I rather like your first name.
from raven72d :
Merci... Mille grazie... Koszonom szepen... Domo arigato... Vielen Dank'... Your kind words do mean a lot. Thanks more than I can say...
from raven72d :
I used to fly everywhere-- Vienna, Frankfurt, Istanbul, the islands... And now I can't imagine boarding a plane. That has nothing-- *rien*! --to do with terrorism. It has to do with my fear of failing machines, with the anxiety I feel sitting there feeling the aircraft shudder and vibrate in the air. So I can't fly any more. And I can't drive in urban traffic. Ah, well-- maybe there's still some way to get to Europe by sea...
from reddragoneye :
Came across your diary.... Your template is beautiful! I simply adore it.... I am completely Html page illiterate so I'm stuck for the moment with the same old boring template as every one else... Soon i will master it... Ah-ha... Check out my diary if you want I'm adding you to my favorites for every time i need a breath of fresh air. =) Peace, -L- -L-
from freuds-fave :
Je ne suis pas americaine! Je suis titi Parisian!!!
from raven72d :
The Isadora remark is quite accurate...
from raven72d :
Thanks much for writing back... Merci. [The problem in saying that in Hungarian-- Koszonom szepen! --is that these keyboards don't allow for accents and diacritical marks...] Tell me more about teaching...and about life. Do feel encouraged to drop my my diary anytime.
from raven72d :
Perhaps they meant Belmondo in his early 1960s glory days.
from raven72d :
You are a vur' delightful discovery here on a Monday afternoon... I teach History at a small college; I'm between classes at the moment. And I also hold a law degree (civil law, actually) from a law school which prides itself on a Franco-Spanish-Roman heritage... And how is teaching going for you? Now-- I love your entries and your outlook on life... Do drop by at my own journal sometime... And after years of doing German and Hungarian, I'm suddenly anxious and insecure about my French-- so you get no witty and sardonic French parting...
from dizzigemini :
nice lips. sweet.
from kermitsarah :
no, that's not what we want. just keep doing your own thing.
from dizzigemini :
aloha, i changed the quote. it's lighter now. wink wink, nudge nudge.
from buddhawhoa :
Game played on a diamond. Four bases. Two teams. Hit the ball with bat, scores some runs. Most runs win.
from buddhawhoa :
I love your diary! I have you on my favorites list. And I just wanted to say that we have a lot of ladybugs where I live, in Ohio, the ladybugs here are tres vicieux, but we still don't kill them, we just brush them aside...
from lovelynight :
Sorry. I'm a bit slow. -.-; I've been doing homework all day and I'm a bit crazy. So yeah. I love pies. Hmm...I'd love to see him throw a pie at the dude who ran Enron. I don't know why, but yeah.
from angrypariah :
thankyou. means alot.
from pearljamie :
J'aime votre journal beaucoup. rock on.
