Les outils de Survie...

(Tools of Survival...)

I hope I will use:

Il fait beau!
- It's nice! (weather)
Je voudrais un morceau de gâteau
- I would like another piece of that delicious pastry
Je regarde seulement. Est-ce que je peux l'essayer?
- I'm not just looking. Can I try it on?
Je le prends!
- I'll take it!


I hope I will not use:

Est-ce que j'ai raté le dernier autobus?
- Have I missed the last bus?
Il y avait un appareil-photo dedans!
- There was a camera inside!
Est-ce qu'il y a un commissariat de police près d'ici?
- Is there a police station near here?
Ce n'était pas de ma faute! Ce n'était pas de ma faute !
- It wasn't my fault! It wasn't my fault!

I promise to make up for my lax,lax blogging on my return!! With stories and visits and lots and lots of comments (they don't have to be intelligent or insightful, do they?)

Hi Gabby:

You are on camera at Chennai Central's weekend post (sorry to use a canned comment for all the bloggers for informing about that post since I don't have time to write individually to each). That post itself was many hours in the making :-)

@ the post titled "Shaddi..."

tis sad... esp. for the person who is trying to do some business out there cuz of these fake misinformers...

i myself being a guy from the IT industry discourage those who are close to rely on shaadi.com (even when i know its hurting the industry which is 'my' bread and butter too)

@ this post

u been to France v recently :D someone close to heart lives there... connection made...tnx a lot :D
