these things just happen to me.  
I have just had the strangest street meeting in my life.

Random Guy Handing People Flyers: Hi! Do you hate the suburbs?
Me: What?
Random Guy Handing People More Flyers: Do you have a boyfriend?
Me: What?
awkward pause.
Random Guy Reaching Into His Satchel: Do you think all the people living in the suburbs of Paris are dangerous young thugs who come and set fire to your car in the night?
Me: Er. No?

And then he gave me an erotic book and told me to read it with my (completely hypothetical) boyfriend.

It's mostly sentimental French claptrap about what women like and what men like with horribly tacky salacious puns and little notes like Just remember to make your partner feel good during sex! I'd never have guessed, guys. 

Sometimes I'm very thankful to fandom for teaching me more about sex positivity than real life ever managed to.

Also: if all goes well and misha0529 gets back to me, the final, coded version of ToNC should go up tomorrow. Starting from Monday onwards, though, I'm leaving in vacation, so my access to LJ/the Internet will be very (very, very) limited; if I'm not leaving comments or updating this journal for a long time, that'll be why.

Wouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuah.
Quand même le mec.
Le lien avec la banlieue et le bouquin? Que la banlieue ça craint tellement même si tu ne l'habitues que le soir il faut que tu pratiques avec ton hypothétique copain?

IDK. Au début je croyais que c'était une technique de drague vraiment très tordue, mais non, visiblement c'était le Jour des Banlieues. D: du genre 'faites l'amour pas la guerre', je suppose?

... But I live in the suburbs. I'm guessing your suburbs are our downtown cities. :|a

Booo, I always keep missing you.

WE ALWAYS MISS EACH OTHER, NIN. D:

Yeah, our suburbs/city center are inside out. We used to study that in geography class, how cities in the US are structured on a radically opposite model than they are here. :D

Hahah, we are Opposite Land, awesome.

I have both! I'm nuitdenovembre on gchat. :D skype too, but that's my real name, and I'd rather not write it on this. I'll send you a pm if you want it ♥
Rayna (Nin)ningen_demonai on July 31st, 2011 10:30 am (UTC)
Hahah, nah, s'cool, I'll just use gchat. o/
