It’s Friday y’all! Or, c’est vendredi y’all! (I have no idea how to say y’all in French, maybe tout le monde, yes, we’ll go with tout le monde.)
C’est vendredi tout le monde!
Yes, that’s better. (Can you tell I’m excited? I’m SO excited… there is a wine bar with delicious French nibbles and delicious French wine in my twelve hour from now future.)
Today I’m celebrating the fact that it’s Friday and a beautiful perfectly crisp blue sky Autumny kind of Friday at that. And what better way to celebrate then with something that is making me happy at the moment, and I like to share things that make me happy with you guys. But because you’re my crew and we’re tight, I’m going to confess something too…
French TV and I aren’t the best of friends. There, I said it. Honestly, I don’t think it’s got the most entertaining stuff happening on it in my opinion. (I’m stressing that it’s MY opinion because I don’t want the same thing to happen to me, that happened to this poor American writer in the comment section of this post after she dared to poke fun at France… mon dieu!)
However, lately I’ve been loving Le Petit Journal. It’s basically France’s answer to The Daily Show. The host even has salt and peppered hair à la Jon Stewart. (I’ll admit that even though I’ve got a teensy crush on Mr. Stewart, his French counterpart is awfully cute too.)
But as cute as Monsieur Barthès is, the real reason I watch it is for Catherine and Liliane; two ‘women’ who gossip about what’s going on in the gossip mags. They make me laugh so much that I decided I simply had to share them with you. The genius of Catherine and Liliana is that you don’t have to know French to find them funny. So on this perfectly, crisp Autumn Friday, I give you the gift of laughter. (Feel free to laugh in French… mdr)
