Michael, you need a racist belt.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:43 (fourteen years ago) link

Besides, I wanted to watch the game with my countrymen, the people you so readily dismiss.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:43 (fourteen years ago) link

But something less obvious than the 'South' thing. I want a Breton independence belt excoriating English tourists or something.

Mancunians?

i lived there for six months, and didnt speak much french. it was nice to have native english speakers around

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:46 (fourteen years ago) link

Mancunians?

Yes, like my forebears.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:47 (fourteen years ago) link

This thread is making me very nostalgic.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:48 (fourteen years ago) link

You know, like when Solskjaer bundled it in during the last minute...

'She's not Welsh, is she?"

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:49 (fourteen years ago) link

but you're white. nobody there wanted to bother speaking french to a chink like me

English tourists in Paris vs American tourists in Paris

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:50 (fourteen years ago) link

;)

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:51 (fourteen years ago) link

Ugh, you know what's worse than go to pubs in Paris? Going to TGI Fridays.

tokyo rosemary (rosemary), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:54 (fourteen years ago) link

What do you MEAN? Best cocktails EVER!

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:55 (fourteen years ago) link

Not that I've ever had one, I don't think.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:56 (fourteen years ago) link

anyways, paris sucks

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:57 (fourteen years ago) link

speaking french to a chink like me

Place d'Italie is full of chinks/gooks/good markets and restaurants. I miss the cheap little Vietnamese places in Paris. :(

American tourists but only by a small fraction, though the better kind of British tourist is lovely. When I missed speaking English, I hung out with the Oirish 'cause they weren't as stupid and arrogant as the Americans nor as spiteful and unhappy as the English.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 20:57 (fourteen years ago) link

That's...possibly a fair assessment.

anyway

Well if you've been to cities but you've had enough
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Chevalier
Must have done something right to get passion this way
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Well now I'm calling it arrogant, calling it cruel
(Give Paris one more chance)
And also trop civilisé et mon dieu, c'est trop cool**
(Give Paris one more chance)
But if you don't think Paris was made for love
Maybe your heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Well give Paris one more chance

Well now there's some things I don't like and some things I do
But give Paris one more chance
I can see why Paris would be ugly for you
But give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Trennet too
Must have done something right
Must have something for you
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Now hear the boys singing Beegees songs under the skies
(Give Paris one more chance)
And on the steps of Montmartre they harmonise
(Give Paris one more chance)
Because if you don't think Paris was made for love
Maybe your heart needs a telegram from up above
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance

Let's wrap it up..

Well if you've been to cities but you've had enough
Have you been to Paris, France?
And if you doubt that Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
The home of Piaf and Charles Aznavour
Must have done something right
And will do something more
If you don't think Paris was made for love
Give Paris one more chance
Alright
Give Paris one more chance

that first picture of the Pompidou - I was like, are there floods in Springtime?

gabbneb (gabbneb), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 21:01 (fourteen years ago) link

NOT cold. potentially rainy, but also potentially VERY warm.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 21:03 (fourteen years ago) link

I like DC -> I will like Paris

gabbneb (gabbneb), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 22:49 (fourteen years ago) link

Que c'est étrange.

My old street
http://www.vex.net/~emily/paris/pictures/hotel.jpg

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:05 (fourteen years ago) link

Actually I lived in the third building from the left in that picture, just after the hotel.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:06 (fourteen years ago) link

Quelle rue?

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:06 (fourteen years ago) link

Rue De Nesle, just off of the Rue Dauphine.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:09 (fourteen years ago) link

Looks like it! I can't tell from that angle. There was a semi-functioning jazz club on the ground floor and a small theatre over the street.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:15 (fourteen years ago) link

I did absolutely nothing but read, walk and watch movies. It was bliss!

I also lived here on the rue Jacques-Callot which was the setting for Zola's novel 'Thérèse Raquin' under it's old name, le passage du Pont Neuf.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:16 (fourteen years ago) link

and it was a block away from l'as du felafel which is famous for being lenny kravitz's favorite felafel. they have signs and photos to prove it

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:17 (fourteen years ago) link

on rue des rosiers in the marais

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:19 (fourteen years ago) link

I can spend hours reading this

http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/2707310549.08.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

Phil, is that on Rue des Rosiers? My friend, Miles, and I used to go there on Sundays.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:20 (fourteen years ago) link

Sorry, didn't see your clarification. That place is great.

Michael White (Hereward), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:21 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah, oh sunday afternoons were crazy. all the jewish teens would stand and pose and rev their motorbike/scooters.

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:22 (fourteen years ago) link

I miss Chez Marianne on the Rue des Rosiers. That is where I discovered my great love for mezze.

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:25 (fourteen years ago) link

i love how that street is jewish on the east side and gay on the west end. which was perfect for me seeing that most of my crushes are closeted jewboys.

phil-two (phil-two), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:27 (fourteen years ago) link

errrrrm...

.adam (nordicskilla), Wednesday, 5 January 2005 23:27 (fourteen years ago) link

le dictionnaire historique..that's what the homeless guys sell on the metro!!

i don't have any pictures of where i lived.

phil's use of "jewboys" bugs me.

Which is to say: it doesn’t look burned.

lol yes i shd probably have double-checked as i already know i am a massive nitwit when it comes to identifying trees (lol my dad was a professional botanist, i just left such tasks to him) and i even very briefly paused to think "are those oaks? versailles oaks it says here legit i guess" *MASH SUBMIT BUTTON*

the long-game prepping of trees for use in buildings *is* something (some) architects are well aware of so it's not entirely implausible
