why did i eat those frogs

Frogs, making fun of the French?

Not at all, “varför åt jag dessa grodorna” is a way of saying (if you are older than 35) “shit happens” or maybe “that was stupid of me”.

So what now? What have you done? I kind of ended up in the same situation as last year, alone to plan a conference. Not planned but still happens.

Hopefully the escalator take me up there again in the future

La Seine Musicale

As you all know…

Last Friday I went to see the “Golden Tour” with Kylie Minogue at “La Seine Musicale” – A new concert hall in Paris and very well known for the architecture and solar panels. A concert hall for the future where the the electricity collected from the sun gets converted to music so to speak.

You can find more information here.

Bucket list – Check

Kylie Minogue

So, another thing on my bucket list finally done. A concert with Kylie Minogue. And lets face the facts… No one, ever, will bring the world the news of Kylie being a great singer. She is an ok singer but seriously some of the high notes missed their place in life. But its actually not so bad cause it shows its live. Not perfect.

The first part of the show also struggled with major sound problems so it took a while before she managed to suck you in and reach the party mode.

But leaving the place it was with a good feeling so not Mylene Farmer good but actually more than I expected and the new album “Golden” might start to hit my playlists again now when I have some visuals in my head.

Not much done

Calm weekend.

Even if it feels like nothing been done over the weekend I managed to do laundry, clean up (cosmetic clean up, not as planned but at least OK), worked some on the mp3 tagging but nothing on the 1990s Eurovision webpage…

And not visited YSL or the Atelier des lumieres, keep on waking on those.

And since its Sunday Des Devoirs, no need to stress today tho´cause no lesson on Monday but I’ve done them and it gives me one more week to study.

Second week with the new boss start tomorrow and I need to make a schedule for the upcoming Conference in Russia.

When you finally decide

The feeling of satisfaction

You know when you during the day think “Going out” / “Not going out” and then the calm when you  finally decides to stay home in your sweatpants (And yes they have seen better days days since you bought them back in 2004) watching bad sitcoms on the TV.

The same outfit join you for quick walk to the supermarket to buy some kind of snacks, nuts or candy and maybe a soda.

This is what happened right now in my life. The only thing not 100% “on” is that my Orangina addiction, not a taste of Orangina for a year now kind of backlashed tonight….

TGIF

Well needed weekend coming up

As you all know by now I have been blessed with a new manager at work and it is amazing how tiered you get only by update, inform and explain tasks you more or less do everyday. So I can imagine how tiered the receiving part of all this must be after his first week. So, a well needed morning primal scream “TGIF!!!” for both of us.

So any plans for this weekend? Really, I wanted to have a haircut since I am now soon able to style my hair like Princess Leia. The supposed shorter parts of the hairstyle grown to fast as always. I planned for a cut when I am in Stockholm in a week but it’s really needed NOW. At the same time other things happening now in Paris. Both Atelier des Lumières and Le Musée Yves Saint Laurent present new exhibitions I like to see (OK not mandatory this weekend) and I also really need to clean the apartment including wash the windows before frost and cold days. It’s still none freezing outside during the days so… Let’s see how the weekend turns out, let me guess on Monday none of the above been executed.

Just remembered another thing I would like to do, just stay home doing nothing drinking a nice bottle of Vinho Verde. Might be the easiest plan to follow…

Have a Nice weekend all of you, Bon Week-End
