Down the road I go (trying not to turn into a popsicle even though I have a portable heater strapped to my back)

  1. Pff you’re sooo funny. I think you got it, even in English, you’re totally hilarious =D
    « Winter is coming » (Game of Thrones), well at least if there was snow so that we could make snowballs and snowmen it would be fun… I can’t stand the cold by itself. But don’t worry, in France we’re getting the same rainy greyish weather as you do by now. And it’s only the beginning… Ok Ok I must admit I’m a little tough on French weather, at this very moment i’m sitting at my desk in front of the window and there’s actually a blue cloudy sky and some sun rays. But I don’t buy it, that’s a trap, it’s been the same during a week and every single day rain won the final battle… I only hope we get a rainbow this time !
    And also, because you know I LOVE literature (and that’s not even a joke !), I can’t help commenting upon zeugma. Of course what you didn’t know (and probably didn’t want to know ;D but I’ll tell you anyway mouhahahaaaa) is that zeugma is actually my favourite figure of speech along with chiasmus =) I’m pretty good at finding them and I used to be one of the few pupils in my high school class who knew what it meant (heyhey I spent time learning the list by heart). And I agree with you, it’s a lee wee bit trickier in English since French and English zeugma are not exactly built the same way,.. Got a funny one for you from Flaubert, here you go : « Il admirait l’exaltation de son âme et les dentelles de sa jupe ». Good one, huh ?
    Well, I guess that’s all for now
    Enjoy your day, week, weekend, whatever, enjoy and that’s all =) xx Marion
