this is the chateau i live beside
so im currently laying in my bed at 6pm on a saturday night with my eyes half closed due to overwhelming allergies that i seem to have developed
must be all the 'second hand' smoke.
continuing on with where i left off the last post...
wednesday night was a soiree for the school at the cafe d'art which is just a fancy hippie bar
where u had to wear a big odd accesory.
my accessory was my alfred ring but i did my hair in a huge bouffant by accident
turns out french hair spray is much stronger than the canadian varity,
anywho so we show up at the cafe and the bartender is hella-rude which i dont appreciate so we leave and go to kent bar. not before i embarassed someone first who said so your accesorie must be your hair, and i said no, is your nose yours?
but in french of course.
so we get to kent and its just me and yvonne but we meet casey and donovan there where don orders this swiss beer that is ' the rarest beer in the world' brewed only once a year on december 6th, it is known

these are some of its gardens
as santa clause beer....aka battery acid.
so we drink there that night and there is a hillarious video of it that i will post later i just dont have it loaded yet.
then the next night im sooooo exhausted, i can barely move so yvonne and i grab a pizza, ben and jerrys, and watch french game shows all night.
dont ask me what the purpose of the show was though, cause one minute they were answering trivia questions and the next they were vying for the attention of a young lady.
the next day i went for lunch with amber cause i forgot my food card "by accident' for the school lunch and we ate at this cute french resto and got some traditional faire finally.
i had a salad with a sweet vinaigrette bacon and onions with toasted baguette covered in goat cheese.
god it was good
so that was yesterday and last night we were having a party with the monotrices at a bar called soft which is right across from falstaff and beside the boutique that sold me freddy ring.
the party was supposed to be a flag party where u were only allowed to wear

entrance to the chateau
the colors from the french flag, thats red, white, and blue....christie.
it was fun, we got these drinks all night that were a sweet champagne with lychee fruit in them. soooo good and cold. finally.
its as if ice doesn't exist in france.
i just want a glass of cold juice for once
anywho at the bar we discovered how the french here learn english and that is the following sentences:
where is bryan?
he is in the kitchen.
where is jennifer?
she is in the bathroom
it is raining?
where is my umbrella?
which is cool. except they have all practiced it so much that they put on these phoney american accents so in the middle of the bar last night every hour or so we would take turns yelling out WHERE IS BRYAN???
and some random french boy would pop up and say ...he is in the kitchen, yes?
haha it provided amusement. and our monotrices thought it was hillarious that this was how we were making friends.
so after the bar cora and madie went to this guys apartment to party more but me and nat were exhausted so we thought we should walk home.

this is the house of adam, also our fav bar in the center of town for afternoon cafe's.
given the previous descriptions of last nights events, you would think that we made the smarter choice
this is where you are wrong.
the bar is like a half hour walk away which is fine, i walk back and forth by myself all the time, as do the others
but it was 3am by this point and much later than i would usually walk.
we were fine until we turned the corner onto our street
which is a residential area, like an elementary school is right next door.
note to self: next time your yelling at the kids, ask them where is bryan
anywho we were like maybe 100ft from the front gate of our residence when a man mysteriously appeared behind us which when i turned back to look at him assumed he had been there for a while and we just didnt notice cause we were too busy chatting and laughing.
then we got to the gate and luckily i had my key in my hand and we unlocked the door and went right in and i turned around to make sure nat locked the gate behind her when the disgusting individual that he was,
stood there, behind

this is one of the big gothic churches in town, we picnic in the park at the bottom of the stairs
the locked gate, pulled out his privates and keeping them in his hand, asked if "you want?"
at this point, i was not mentally prepared for this, so i screamed like a child and ran inside the house.
natalie turned around and told him to go F himself.
always a cool head in these situations i was thankful for her.
anywho we told the night monitor what happened and she called the police and we waited for all the girls to get home and walked around and made sure all the doors were locked properly.
but yeah. thank god i was not by myself and that we were so close to the gate cause had we of kept walking, god knows what his plans were.
anywho. all was well and he never bothered the other girls.
so today i went into town and had a little pastry for lunch in the centre ville then went shopping to cure my head of mental instabilities caused from last night
i got a cute purse, dress and sweater from united colors of benetton and then raided sephora for some new make ups. its prix sexy after all haha
i also got some cereal.
very interesting for you to know im sure.
tomorrow we're headed to Nantes which is about half an hour away by the TGV...which is the train and also a drink (tonic, gin, and vodka...so clever the french) where we are going to the beach and visiting the town for the day
i want steak for dinner tonight
im feeling malnurished lately. perhaps we shall eat at bar l'hippopotamus
it makes me happy cause there mascot is a big purple hippo holding a tray in his hand seductively
anywho ill write more later when i hopefully have some pics and videos to upload
