Foutaises, a Short Film by Jean-Pierre Jeunet

A short film that was some kind of inspiration (I've read that somewhere) for Amélie's adventure... You will see Dominique Pinon who also played in the movie.


Here, everyone is on vacation, that's great...

I have fabric.
Lots of fabric.
And a large armoire but it was jam-packed.
I had to do what I had to do.
Took me an entire Sunday.
Hundreds of pieces of fabric of varied colors, textures, nicely folded, well organized, the ugliest at the back, the prettiest at the front (how discriminatory, life's unfair).
Very, very.
Just gotta keep the rhythm!
P.S. 1: Beloved stepmother just sent me two huge bags of fabric. Where am I supposed to put those? My life is filled with drama, I know :-)
P.S. 2: And no, the bottom shelf is not organized. Will stay like that. Because.

Six Little Things I Do

A Follow-up to Guylaine's post...

1. Listen to VERY LOUD music (like I'm doing right now: Keane, David Usher, Imogen Heap, Dido...)
2. Stroll around in a fabric store
3. Wrap myself in one of the quilts I made when I watch TV
4. When there is almost no one else at the movie theatre (ahhh, empty rooms)
5. Change my handwriting for fun
6. Cut (I can do that for hours, but this pleasure comes with a major bug, I have to buy magazines = $$$)

Meb: Anne Niverre

Congrats to Meb who shows up for the first time at

I love...
the rhythm made by the typewriter
the pink rainboots
the Powerpuff Girls party hats
the green fence
the words written with a chalk
the party flute
the bow on the track
the hopscotch
the ukulele
Meb's soft voice...
