The city's all a-shining
Beneath a fickle sun,
A gay young wind's a-blowing,
The little shower is done.
But the rain-drops still are clinging
And falling one by one --
Oh it's Paris, it's Paris,
And spring-time has begun.

I know the Bois is twinkling
In a sort of hazy sheen,
And down the Champs the gray old arch
Stands cold and still between.
But the walk is flecked with sunlight
Where the great acacias lean,
Oh it's Paris, it's Paris,
And the leaves are growing green.

The sun's gone in, the sparkle's dead,
There falls a dash of rain,
But who would care when such an air
Comes blowing up the Seine?
And still Ninette sits sewing
Beside her window-pane,
When it's Paris, it's Paris,
And spring-time's come again.

-Sara Teasdale

Last day

We went to the Opera house. It was so incredibly beautiful. I want nothing more than to go and actually see an opera in there. Unfortunately, we did not have time for that this time so I had to make do with taking pictures of the areas open to visitors.
Nonetheless, it was a breathtaking experience.

Sous l'Empire des Crinolines

We went to an exhibition at Musée Galliera today that was all about 19th century crinoline petticoats. There were frills and lace a-plenty and I got a lot of inpiration from the various dresses, parasols, bonnets and corsets that were on display. I was this close to actually drooling over a particular dress made out of Gold Brocade.
After the museum visit, we walked for what seemed like hours and tried to find somewhere to eat lunch. Naturally, we did not find a single restaurant that suited us so we ended up taking the Metro to Bastille, eight stations away, and went to a place there that we visited last fall. I was near starving at that point and my hands were shaking like crazy, but at least the food was good.
Once our stomachs were full with delicious french cuisine, I dragged my father to Baby, the Stars Shine Bright and walked away and hour or so later with a big pink bag in my hand. When we were planning this trip I had actually decided to decline whatever things my father wanted to purchase for me, but as soon as I stepped in to that small shop I lost all sense of propriety. There were simply too many pretty things in there!
The last stop for the day was a small, and very cute, store close to our hotel called "Nihon Import" I think... Either way, they sell a lot of cute things, including clothes, candy and CDs, and the woman working there is really adorable! The last time I went there I noticed that they had !Giant Pocky so I simply had to go back there today to get some more.
All in all it had been a good day. Right now we are back at the hotel getting some rest before we go out to dinner.

Paris - Day Two

A day filled with cakes and pretty dresses.

I enjoyed myself very much.

Paris - Day One

La Gueuze

It is nice to be back in Paris and even nicer to know that the people liked me enough to remember me. Both the clerks in our hotel and the waiters at our favorite restaurant La Gueuze wanted to shake our hands and greet us properly, rather than just give us our room key or show us to the table.
I have to admit that I was having doubts concerning this trip... I have been feeling so terrible lately that I was not sure if I would be able to enjoy myself here, but now that we have arrived I am really glad I decided not to cancel the trip.
I love it here and now I do not want to leave.

Just another one of those rants

How come I am always the last choice? People who claim to love me seem to just forget me whenever one of their "real" friends step into the room. I do not understand... Am I really that horrible to be around? So awful that even though plans have been made, you still prioritize others before me. No matter what I do, I am never good enough to be around, am I? No... Because there will always be someone who is better. Every... Single... Time.

I am starting to think that perhaps I would be better off without any friends at all. It certainly would save me a lot of pain and embarrassment.

There are only a few select people that I trust completely. There used to be a lot more of them, but now there are only five. Two people have been docked off that list and, at this rate, I have a feeling more will follow. I do nott mean to turn my back on people, but sometimes drastic measures must be used in order to save one from heartbreak.

Oso - My over-the-seas Sister. I will always love you or at least as long as you provide me with wonderful smutty RPs.

Panda - My best gay friend. I miss you, sweetie, and I do not know what I would do without you.

Josh - My Australian boytoy. Did not think you would end up on this list, did you?

Kreia - My provider of ironic remarks. You are truly evil, my friend.

Vesh - My trusted older brother. We do not see eachother much but I love you nonetheless, ye olde lycan.

Please do not let me down.

Meanwhile, the rest of you might want to think about this. If you are not one of these five, it means that you have lost whatever trust I used to have in you, and it takes quite a lot for that to happen.

"The city's all a-shining..."

Come tuesday I shall return to my home away from home... And I shall be happy.

"Goddess save me from my friends - I can protect myself from my enemies."

Sunday, February 15, 2009

I kept telling myself that I could trust you - that you would always tell me the truth...
Time and time you have proved me wrong on that aspect and each time I have managed to convince myself that there was some morbid reason behind your actions. Well, it has been over a year now and I am sick and tired of your behavior. You lie, you cheat and you steal without ever thinking of the concequences. Not even when your friends get hurt.

If you read this... then you should know who you are, but at this point I simply don't have the strength to say this to your face.

What does a girl need to do to get a date around here?

It's been 3 years since my last...

Be my Valentine

My birthday is tomorrow and Valentine's day is five days after that and yet I don't look forward to either one. Each year I make a vow to myself to make both of these days eventful but so far I have failed miserably.

My birthdays are usually spent like any other day, except for the opening of gifts, and I constantly find myself dissappointed by the fact that no one I know took the time to plan something or at least take me out somewhere. And after eighteen years of the same thing over and over again, can you blame me for giving up hope? I don't expect anything out of my birthdays anymore, not even gifts. My parents buy me enough things on the other days of the year so I really do not need another heap of presents just because I happened to be born on this day.

It's a little different with Valentine's day though. My hope has diminished but it's not completely gone yet. Still, I do not expect much on February 14th this year either. It's rather sad actually... Is it really to much for a girl to ask for someone take her out on a romantic date once a year? It does not even have to be really special... I just don't want to spend the entire day at home again...

So, will you please make me a very happy girl and be my Valentine?

Tick Tock, Tick Tock...

Time passes so fast... I am not sure I can keep up anymore...
