No Don't Loose Your Accent ... !!!

Please, give me a break!!!
Yes, I want to loose it ...
It's one very annoying thing to have this following senario each time I open my mouth:

- "Hello, how are you doing?"
- "Fine, thank you! How about you?"
- "Oh! where are you from?"
(There we go again ... !!!)
- "Excuse me?"
-"Yes, your accent, what is it?"
(Gzzzzzz!!! I barely opened my mouth!?!?!?)
-"Well, have a wild guess!
(Actually, if you could make it an educated one ... That would be great for once!!!)
-"Nop! You are SO cold ... !!!"
-"So, what is it?"
-"No way!!!"
(Oh!!! Ya!!! Like if I didn't know myself!!!!)
-"French!? It's the best accent, the most beautiful language!
(Yes, right!!! Like if you knew what you were talking about!!! You couldn't even put your hand on it!!!???)
-"Comment allez-vous? Comment vous appelez vous? Je m'appelle ..."
(Oh, please!!!)
-"Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?"
(Hell NO ... !!!)
-"That's all I know ... That's all I remember from High School class ..."
(Thank God!!! Bla, bla, bla ...)
-"Ok, got to go. Bye!"
(Looser ... !!!)

Each time it's the same deal!!! It's ridiculous ... really!!! I'm so tired of this scenario.

This accent thing is more like a speech disability more then anything, I'm telling you!!!
-"what did you say?"
-"what are you trying to say?"
-"I didn't understand what you just said!"

The only cool thing about the accent, is that I can blame it on my French when I have a patty mouth:
-"Oups! Excuse my French!"
And some time to get out of an illegal U turn ticket:
-"Pardon? Oh, desolee ... sorry ... Je suis perdue ... hu!!! ... I'm lost! ... "
Although I need to have my French passport handy instead of my Californian driving license!!! LOL.

Oh, well ... After 10 years in this country I should be used to it by now! But actually it drives me nuts. I wish I had gotten ride of this accent by now!

The worse is when I go back home and they ask me where I come from there too !!!!????

Man !!! ...
I can't win, can I ???

What to do ???

Or how to do it ???

I have 2 ideas of once a week post but I'm not sure how to handle it !?!?!?

  1. Should I create 2 new blogs and add a linking tab in the navigation bar like I have right now with my 2 blogs (fdgtgrl's blog and Digi Scrap'n Blog Train). This will make it a total of 4 blogs each having a specialty topic.
  2. Or should I choose a weekly day for each 2 new topics like in this blog I follow Blue Frogs legs. Kelly has, every Friday, what she call "Pay It Forward Friday.
Just wandering ...
Dear followers, what do you think ???

Thank you for your comments and suggestions.
Sincerely, fdgtgrl

Behind, so behind ...

Beside being busy with the after math of our wedding ( house cleaning, "thank you" cards, change of name ... and all this 'mess' !!! ), my gallbladder has been really acting-up big time ...

The result: I have 182 blogs to read and counting.
The other obvious downfall is not having post anything at all for a LONG time !!!

And there I go complaining that I haven't gotten many followers ...
No kidding !!!
Maybe the problem is that I don't post, I'm not organized and there is no consistency ...
Duhh !!!

So, I apologize to my 2 followers for my lack of everything ...
I have ideas of structured post but I need to write them ...
I read about scheduling post: need to apply the information ...
Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon ...

Talk to you all soon ;-)

Sad Sight :-(

I see road-kill often on the side of the high-way, freeway ... and it's sad !!! it makes it even worst when it's a cat or a dog ... In which case, I always wonder if some-one is missing her/him.

This one was different !!!
Not that I really knew the cat but I've seen her wonder around and it wasn't so long ago that I actually saw her waiting patiently for dinner at this "man-made cats' dinner" off this parking lot ...

Lounging in the sun or hunting in the surrounding fields, she had a nice shiny all black long hairs coat ...
It was hard passing by her liveless body right there on the side-walk just a few feet from the "diner" :'-(

So, after work, I stopped by the accident spot, picked her up and lay her to rest rolled in a carton sheet against the bushes right by there. I didn't know what to do really but couldn't stand the sight of her laying there in plain view on the side-walk ... And thinking so many person walked/drove by her without any care !!!

After this, I had to go by the "cats' dinner" and left a note to " the nice person who feeds the cats".
I announced the sad news.
I thought that maybe if this person was caring enough to have put little shelter and leaving food for the cats, she/he would like to know ... Maybe she/he had a name for this poor cat ... Maybe she/he would want to say her/his last goodbye and bury her/he nicely ...

It wasn't Friday and it might not qualify as a "Pay It Forward" action but this was my way of showing I care ...

What would you have done ??? What's your thought ???
