Tomorrow Christa and Achim (Martin's parents) celebrate their 40th year of wedding!!!!

**~~* ^* * * ^^* * *

And they really look as if they married yesterday (happy sigh). I wish the same happiness to everyone (including me :P)
**~~*^* *
Yesterday, all the people from the company gathered for a last lunch :-)
That was pretty sad, people finally left wishing each other to have "good holidays", as if it was just a lil break...


And today I've received my "redundency notice"... well, I prefer bday cards (s)
I'll spent my whole next week at different administrative bureaux to officialize my personnal situation. It gonna be boring to gather the right papers, etc, etc.
Viva Senegal!!!

The Frawnch deserved to lose! Mwaaahahaha!
If only that could stop the fever here about footie! I watched the game while painting, it was so ... soporific!
I asked myself if I found it really boring because we did not win or because footie has neber been exciting....

Let's see....You wait (I don't know how long is a match) for about 1.30 hour for wat... 1..2..3 goals (if you're lucky!!)
Rugger is wayyyyyyy more entertaining! :P

I hope the next games will be of a beDer quality :-)))

Ohhh I've been a bad mouff about that aperitif yesterday in the the hall of the building!
It was organized by an old lil couple, the most adorable persons! :-)))

The doorkeeper had prepared many yummmy goodies and everyone had brought enough to drink for a whole week! :-))

There were real kewl goils of my age, one being also preggie (G), also some weird -but nice- couples, and a family half-french/half from New zealand (strange cocktail, hey!).
The mother told me her brother lived in Oz and she could have the best adresses for cheap flights, etc!!! She also insisted we'd be welcome at her bro's if we ever go to Melbourne!
How nice!! I would have nebber guessed I'd find guuuud plans for Oz via neighbours! hehehe

We spent just 2 hours there, but that was brilliant. I highly recommend this concept !!! :-)))

(I think) I've felt the babe moving!!!!

It feels like bubbles, but not bubbles I am used to! bubbles that goes from right to left or down to up!
I'm going to observe carefully that belly!!!
**~~* *^* * *

It seems everyday there's something to celebrate!
And today is the "Immeubles en fête" day (meaning buildings are partying, or something like dat).

This celebration has started a couple of years ago I think, and the aim of it is that you meet your neighbours.
The concept first looks bizarre and boring... but finally it's a guud idea (though still a bit boring ;-).

Someone in every building takes the initiative to prepare an aperitif and invite all the neighbours for a drink. That way, neighbours can meet each other at least once.
Soooo, we'll make a jump there and say hello with the most delicious smile to all dem nasty lil grannies ;-)

Ohhh changing topic, I've spent quite time on audiogalaxy today and I've just found an amazing version of Ave Maria.. by Nina Hagen!!! hehe It's very baroque:-))
I really enjoy finding new version of classic pieces made by the most unexpected artists!

Monday, May 27, 2002

Tadaaaa....It should the last time I come to work today!

Now I totally see it as a guuud thing cause I'll be able to start a new *chapter* and... to take care of my bellybits!

Since I've been to the clinic the other day, I worry a bit, my belly keeps hurting, and I don't want to take any risk, of course.
Hm, I gotta follow Jack's advice and behave like a princess, lying down, being fed with grapes (hehe, funny image).. relaxing as much as possible (s)
That should not be too hard to do ;-)

Oh! Gwénola (sister) found a job and signed last week! Today is her first day :-))
She will work in an association which play a role (which, I don't know yet) in the boat races.
She works in a lil wooden house on the Seine, that looks terribly fine :-)))
....but....I'll REALLY miss bothering her everyday!

Talking of jobs, I'd beDer go and check if I've won at the lottery of last Sat'!

Haaaa new painting's done and scanned!
I still have probbies with the red colour, it does not give the shades required, so all what contains red (yellow, purple, brown) do not show as I expect! Argg!

Friday, May 24, 2002

I'm just back from the clinic :-)))
The scan of the "second quarter" will be on the 12th of June! Yeeeeeeeepeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
If we can see well the babe, we'll know if we'll have a princess or a knight :P
Laaaaalalaalaaaaaaaa**~~* * * *

We have no preference, really. I just know that for us it's wayyyyyyy easier to find a name for a goil than for a boy (s).. And nenene, we won't tell the names we have in mind :P

I've heard the babe again today (his heart beating and his movements inside)... awwww, it was fantastic, I'm so surprised that there is such a lil treasure down inside me!!!**~* *^^* *
(happy sigh)
The Gyno was surprised though that my uterus is actually very low and should not be. He said I gotta be very careful and behave as a preggie goil! ...which meant I gotta stop any kind of exercise, including walking too much or going upstairs and downstairs too often!
I told him I had reduced a lot my activities, but he answered I had to be specially careful ....otherwise... from the 6th to the 9th month I'll have to stay lying down..

He thinks I've already had some little contractions and gave me a big list of medication to calm the belly a lil bit.
From what I understood, the babe will keep on pushing a lil bit till the the higher the uterus is, the better, and the less active I am, the better.

Anyway, I'll be even more careful and I think I won't go dancing too much (siiiiiiiiiiiiiigh)
The guuud point is that I stop working, it's exactly what my belly *needeeeeeed* :-))))

Ohhh I've been told that from now on I should be able to *feel* the babe inside!
So far, nothing... but when it happens I think I'll simply faint into some hysteric and ferociously happppppppppy lands!

28 years-old since 2 days (happy sigh...hey it's young! ;-)
Ohhhhh I've decided in a real "dictator way" (g) that my bday was not to be over on yesterday but that it will go on for the whole week (poor Martin :P)

I've had a wonderful Tuesday, during while Martin treated me like a queen (as usual actually! me lucky one!)
First I had the best piece of news when I went to the clinic in which I had forgotten to "book" a room for Ze S-Day (birth :P). Usually the lists of preggie women booking rooms are quickly full and I was not sure it would be simple to get one. But it was!!
Yeeepeeeeeeee, I won't be left in the middle of the street on the S-Day!

Martin came back home with 28 beauDifuuuul roses and offered me 2 "seventies" trousers he had made on the weekend (you can't find them in France at the moment, only in Germany). Waaaaaaa I was so happy!!!
Then we wanted to go out for a drink and restaurant but I spent my evening on the phone answering relatives and friends who had remembered my bday! I was astonished because I have the baad habit of forgetting people's bday !!!!... I gotta take notes of the birth' dates of my friends and relatives, rilly :-))))

So Martin and I will celebrate dat bday again tomorrow evening and another time with the family on Sunday. Haaaaaaaa, happy moment, happy week :P !

That illimited cinema card is really brilliant!!!
Yesterday we went to watch Star Wars -Episode II- The Attack of The Clones (woo, that makes a long title!)
The atmosphere in the cinema was really kewl, we were surrounded by fans :-)))

Monday, May 20, 2002

As I was telling in the DHN, it's been a discovery weekend, we went to cinema twice and had two guud surprises!
Well, I *knewww* I was to enjoy these movies because before I read lots of critics from people who went to watch them (no professional critics from magazine). From the positive and negative critics, I almost always manage to get the idea I need of a movie.
I enjoy feeling that way how a movie will be because it's just not fun to waste time and money to watch a flop :P

Sooo I went first to watch Le voyage de Shihiro / Spirited Away, which I wanna see again because there are so many details in it, so much creation (with the weirdest creatures you can imagine), and then we went to watch K-Pax which I really recommend; I keep asking myself what is people's interpretation of the K-Pax' end... but no one I know have seen it, damn! :P

I wanna see the last Star Wars, I think it will be really kewl (I enjoyed a looot the last one), even if I worry a bit about the love story they've put in it (which you don't really expect going to watch such a movie :P). They say it's to attract female teenagers (rolling eyes)... hehehe!
I've finally included the pics of the last few sculptures I've done.
I start to think that working on images with Gulli is far more difficult than making paintings or sculptures, it took me maybe 3 hours just to be able to prepare these pics for the web!
Huuuuu, it feels guuud when it's done :P
And today is a special date! .....hehehe :P

Friday, May 17, 2002

Hmmm, I'm being in a strange muud right now. Feeling a bit down.

Being at home like that just feels unappropriate. I should be enjoying free time, but I think I have to get used to that.
I won't be working for months and I fear to lose all my capabilities for a future job, to feel a bit useless, etc. I worry for money too, but I know, who does'nt?! (s)

It's just like being put aside, forced to *summernate* (should be the opposite of hibernate, hm? ;-).
I have to get used to the situation, that's the point :-))

Thursday, May 16, 2002

Such a bewwwDiful weather outside (with almost 30°c), that I hardly found time to sit behind the Gulli !
Anyway, I managed to add a painting, which was really hard to scan, because of its size and original colours. The result on the screen is "ok", but again the colours are different and you really can't see details. Nebber satisfied, hey!! ;-)

Wednesday, May 15, 2002

Wooooooooo, I'm ermmmm....yussss.... in weekend!!!!
No kiddin!
That's too unfair for all you hard workers around, I noooooooooooe !!! (But I've been told today that legally I'm not forced to come to work till I'm fired, because I'm ... preggie!!!
Sooooo, I said I'll be go to work on mondays only and for the rest of the time.... nada!
I'm so tired right now I can hardly believe it :-))

I guess I'll find time for blogs tomorrow, hey ;-)
(happy tired sigh) **~~* * *^^* * * *

Tuesday, May 14, 2002

Huuuu, much electricity in the air around here at work. People stress and get nervous...
...including me (!!), I've had a shaaaarp talk with da boss, and just now another one with our accoutant.. shiteroo! I'm about to sock him one, I'm not even sure he understands Franch when you talk to him!
And I'm usually the patient type!

Anyway (s), I've just read 2 guuuud jokes that instantly turned me into the most giggling mood :P
Exactly what I needed :-)**~* *

The expectant fathers

Four expectant fathers were in a Minneapolis hospital waiting room, while their wives were in labor.

The nurse tells the first man, "Congratulations! You're the father of twins!"
"What a coincidence! I work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team!"

The nurse returns and tells the second man, "You are the father of triplets!"
"Wow, what a coincidence! I work for 3M Corporation!"

The nurse tells the third man that his wife has given birth to quadruplets.
"Another coincidence! I work for Four Seasons Hotel!"

At this point, the fourth guy faints. When he comes to, the others ask what's wrong.
"What's wrong? I work for Seven-Up!"

**~* * * *

The Rope

There were 11 people hanging on to a single rope that suspended them from a helicopter trying to bring them to safety. Ten were men; one was a woman.

They all decided that one person would have to let go because if they didn't, the rope would break and all of them would die.

No one could decide who it should be. Finally the woman gave a really touching speech, saying how she would give up her life to save the others, because women were used to giving things up for their husbands and children and giving in to men.

All of the men started clapping.

I've just arrived (1 hour late) at work, and what do I hear ?
we stop working at the end of the month!
"this is the end ...(balalam)... my only friend...(lalam)... the end"

But I also learnt we can benefit from "social security" for 4 years after we stop working. That was 1 point that had me worried because pregnancy finally "costs" a lot :-)
That's already a good point!
"Can you picture what will be...(lalala)...So limitless and free (If only!)"


Sunday, May 12, 2002

Ohhhh I've spent a reaaaaaal guuud week!
Absolutely yes, cause I've won 3 times at the trivial pursuit! (laughing) ... Well we had not the best weather this time, soooo, in the evening we all (the house was full this time) sat around the fireplace, some tasting the best of the best liqueurs (rum+ginger, yummm!!), others screaming victory when winning games :P

Eva was also there, in a very cuddling muuud, what an angel she is! She spent her time caressing my belly asking if I needed her help to make the babe go "out" ;-) hehe
She already has much success with boys, she has given the biggest kiss to a boy her age (4 years-old) who was playing near his parents' boat! Well, I think the boy had no choice actually ;-)
Rilly, at 4 !

Anyway, the weather here in Paris looks fantastic, which a bit is motivating when you've to go back to work. I really wonder how it gonna be there.. If there is no work to do at all, I hope at least the web connections will work, so that I can start to check all the administrative steps I'll have to deal with... eeeeck! I promised myself I wouldn't talk of it today!

(washin mouff vigorously)

With more than 82%, it's a brilliant victory!
What a relief :-))))

The fact we apparently all took seriously the political threat and imagined the worst could happen really motivated the crowds :-))**~~**^* * *

(I've finished with my political chapters, no worries :P)
Weeeeee!!! I just got a message on da mobile from the doc, no risk of trisomia 21!!
**~~* *^* *dancing around!!!**~~* * * * * *^^~~* * *
Now yesterday we went dancing in a fest noz till about 3.00 and woooooo, my belly hurts now! I should have taken the medication!
But the dances were so fun!
It's just that you have to jump all the time to dance a scottish, a mazurka or a gigue! Ha well, that will make of my babe a very active one! :P
Back to a rainy Paris! Argggg, it was so sunny in Bretagne! Great I'm back there in a couple of days :P
Okies, I went to vote and now 40 minutes to wait before getting the results.
It's very stressing for everyone around, we've imagined the "impossible".. if Le Pen wins, it's nothing less than a civil war here! I almost smile typing this because it sounds soooo surrealistic...:)
That won't happen, thank Gawd, but you never can tell before. I have no confidence in people, in their choice, soooo...(starting biting lips here).
To be so close to an evil political situation at least makes you think twice about the future.
Okies, now 35 minutes to go. We'll be *in the streets* tonight whatever the results are! RoaaarrRR! hehe

Thursday, May 02, 2002

Waaaa, holidays seem to be highly motivating :-)
In 2 days I've made 2 new sculptures (a record for me!), one of a girlie dragon keeping her 3 eggs, one of a lazy dragon boy sleeping on his back.
They're drying right now, maybe I'll have time enough to make another one before coming back to Paris **~~*^** ~~*
Those presidential elections worry me. I still hear people telling there's no need to vote because we already know the results: "the extreme-right party won't win anyway".
(shaking head)
Well as long as the demonstrations are representative of the votes of next sunday.. 1.5 millions in streets to defend human rights yestertday, 10.000 to support the extreme-right party!
A good point for Democracy :-))
