Good game, #Scotland … Same player shoot again #ScotlandIndependence …

In English, they say : Good Game, and her Majesty would add “We are amused”

In Germenglich, they say : Lieber s…tuffed like Salmond als savaged like Wallace

The Auld Allies in France say : C’est la vie (et l’avis de la majorité, pour cette fois)

De Gaulle would have said, in London, or Edinburgh  : “Vive l’Ecosse … libre !”

That’s all I have to say … for the time being.

Today or not to die, that is the question … for Scotland

I don’t really believe Auld Alliance’s Scotland may vote to leave their United Kingdom (only bookmakers and newspeople would like us to believe that), and I’m not sure my brains follow my (brave)heart in that case, but today is as good as any other day for whatever Kingdom, an ancient world, or whatever old dream, to die.

Scots … are about as crazy as Frogs, but at least, they speak, and write decent English

Oh ! Shocking … (though, polls and politicians are equally unreliable as any other auld allies, generally speaking, and as regards Scotland and the September “Yes or No” referendum, specifically)

Never mind, it’s just the French (President) at work (again)


So, the French President used to have a mistress (Valérie Trierweiler, a leftist journalist, like most French journalists), like most French, especially French politicians or Presidents of this or that. But unlike most of the French, his mistress was not a bonus (in French : “c’était pas un cadeau”), not a hot “5 à 7″ like the French scooter drivers love to say, but the almost official French “First Lady”.

Golden teeth ?


Then, sexy Hollande officially dismissed the official mistress and started an unofficial relationship with another mistress, lovely Julie Gayet, an actress of course, but unlike most French, especially French politicians or Presidents of this or that, she was (besides she was a “she”) not another mistress, neither the mistress aside the First Lady, but just what the French call “Plan Q”, a “sex friend” in English.

Then, nobody really knows who left whom, but the French President was officially alone with his kids of another former, still older, mistress, for the summer holiday, and everything was seemingly perfect and quiet, French business as usual, if not hot and sexy as hell, in the best of French paparazzis, spin doctors, and summer book vendors’ worlds.

Then, the former, former mistress wrote a book about her relationship with François Hollande, and the lovely Paris Indian Summer weather suddenly changed at Elysée Palace … 


But never mind, a French storm (“tempête sous crânes chauves”, in French) in Paris is not a Rio Butterfly, nobody gets hurt, nobody even notices but the Parisians, and some French in France.

Hold on tight …


When the going gets real tough, the real tough ones hold on tight.

Sorry, guys, it’s September, now, and I’m happy …

happyRelax, guys, it’s just September around the corner, there’s no reason to be (un)happy …

Never mind, it’s just another Monday, and it’s still August


It could be worse : it’s still August, it could have been to hot to sleep well at night-time, some of us still are on holiday (or work on week-ends and usually not on Monday, if they are not in the summer tourism business), others never work, and the first Monday morning of August at coffee time is anyhow less unbearable than most of what in is front of the rest of most of us for the rest of the year …
