So, what about myself?

I don’t cut the lines and  try not to complain so much.

I can’t eat a whole baguette – hate stinky cheese. I don’t smoke (used to but stopped), don’t even drink wine (no alcohol). I dislike: oysters, snails , (what about frogs? ..). I tasted foie gras but I’m not fond of it.

Yes, I’ve read Proust (and loved it – not only « Du côté de chez Swann ») but I studied Literature and worked as a bookseller.

Of course, I know Serge Gainsbourg but I think he could be such a moron…

I like to learn foreign languages (in fact, I love them).

I don’t like cream. I don’t put butter on my bread. I drink my coffee black but I DO prefer tea.
I like tourists so I can speak with them.



American shows are great. British ones too.

Berets are pretty ridiculous ^^

I don’t care if our President is married or not (or divorced, or whatever).

(I won’t talk about politics anymore. Not talking about religion either. )
