Old News Is Still Good News!

Today I recon got more letters at once than ever before.
It turns out a house down the street has been receiving a lot of my mail.
Most of it was now unusable visa cards and pins, but amongst them all were 3 of the special kinds.
One full of vacation memories
 one from New Years

and one with love
Thanks to the senders.
I am glad that they all found their way to me, even though it took a little more time than expected.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind!

Some days ago I saw "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind" again.
Besides the ambiguous storyline and the great cinematography I like it because it made me think of those people that we sometimes wish we could erase from your memory. Maybe because they treated us wrong, hurt us or simple because they didn't have the same desire to be a part of our lives as we wishes to be a part of theirs.
But like in the movie I think there is always that one memory that we would like to hold on to.
Because it meant something special, because it was beautiful and because without it we wouldn't be the same.

Spring Be Gone!

After two weeks of the sky looking like this I have to say I've had enough of rain and am starting to miss spring.

It seems like the cherry trees have blossomed forever. I guess it is the early warmth and the the shift to cold again that is to blame. To be honest I think I did my fair share of Hanami this year, starting in late February still going on, and I miss the sun and the feeling of summer ahead.
So here is a couple more spring photos from Paris and London.

Let's Listen To Dido And Madonna!

Things has been busy since I started back in school as usual there is too much to do and so little time. Maybe I have also procrastinated things too much over the holidays. And so I been listening to Teiturs song quite a lot for the last week in hope that someone will pass by and start wasting my time.

Longing For Spring Again!

These past days have been so rain full, and the only sign of spring is the sound of the Ice cream truck.
Then it was nice to see some of my earlier spring pictures (from when Eva was visiting) for the first time yesterday since they were developed.
I spend most of the day at school scanning the photos that I took between February and now. But I also had time to develop my first black and white roll.

An Angel In Disguise!

A while ago my friend Angie send me a Angel-A (2005). A movie that I think is worth sharing with you. If you haven't already seen it, you'll have a chance not to miss it. 

André is a low life. He owes money all over Paris, and he has only 12 hours to come up with his depth or he will suffer a horrible death. In a miserable state he almost takes his own life, but standing at the wrong side of the bridge he encounters a woman who have had the same idea. She turns out to be an angel, and after rescuing her from drowning, she helps him get his life back into order and makes him become a better man.
It is beautiful, it is french, it is all the way through a feel good movie.

The heart Collection!

Another heart from the streets of London
A bit trashed.

Aujourd'hui Je Suis MME Range-Tout!

In my attempt to learn french, Vincent found this children's book for me in Paris that he thought fitted to me.
"Miss Arrange-It-All"
She is even yellow.
And today I feel like organizing stuff.

Paris (part4): Cuisine!

The only problem with France is that you eat and drink too well.
I feel like I have to go on a strict diet now that I am back. 
I tried many new things. Like Foie gras, artichokes with vinaigrette, sweet things for breakfast, amazing cake and croissant d'almond. But there was also time to try some of Vincent's favorite Asian places around Paris. 

 Sweet breakfast


 Sunday pâtisserie

One thing I learned is that you don't mess with the Foie Gras.

Paris (part3): Here There and Everywhere!

Paris was like London full of spring.
Even the lilacs were blooming.
We went to the parks and Cimetière du Père-Lachaise without seeing Jim Morrisons grave, but saw lots of others. 
Did a bit of shopping (which I might come back to later), and meet up with old friends for drinks.

Fresh daisy ring
Being in the bookshop made me want to learn french even more than before.
