You know what else is good for a bad mood?

Shockingly good French hip-hop. If you want something fast, fun, and smart, click the link. When it loads all the way, click the itty-bitty Union Jack for English on the bottom. (Unless you understand French better than I do.) Then go to "videos." The song they greet you with is "La Patte."

Slate.com released a list of most slept-on CDs. Glad they did!

I had to laugh.

When I first went to live in France I couldn't handle French rock and roll..but I did find French rap and hip/hop interesting......

It has way to much slang for me to really get...but it's fun nonetheless!

Cheers doll! Have a swell weekend!

Oh, I don't understand a word of it. Technically I know some French 'cause I took it in high school, but nobody ever seems to rap about pencils being on desks. :-) It sure sounds pretty, though.

Between you and Hikaru, I'm realizing I really, really must expand my international music collection beyond Celtic and Irish!

Sorry I haven't commented in a while, but my computer hates me and doesn't load the comment box very often. I've confiscated Mr. Jaded's laptop for the moment while he puts Jadette to bed then watches football. I got a new computer, but Mr. J will have to set it all up tomorrow.

I don't think it's ever healthy to try to define yourself and your place in the grand scheme of things based on other peoples ideals or preconceived notions. You just have to be comfortable with yourself, and the people who can most appreciate who you are will be drawn to you. We teach others how to treat us... if we laugh off a particularly negative comment, they'll think it's ok to make statements like that, etc. Hold true to your beliefs and convictions and don't allow those who can't appreciate you in the way you need to be appreciated to be part of your life. The only opinions that should matter are those of the people we love. The rest of them can schedule a meeting with your blue acrylic appendage.

Have I told you lately how much I admire you, your relationship, your writing, your strength.......

I read every word you write, on your journal and all of the comments you write to me and to our mutual fellow blogmates.....

You are honest and sincere.... and best of all, a sister!

Life doesn't get any better than this!
