Don’t miss l’Écritoire !

Event if you can’t read (my) French, read that, and rush to this great Parisian writer’s Café près de La Sorbonne !

Joli bar agréable et confortable, limite club anglais dans les douillets fauteuils du fond, bibliothèque au mur et tables bistrot en bois à l’ancienne à l’intérieur, avec terrasse fraîche devant la fontaine de la place de La Sorbonne, comptoir en zinc qui a connu le Picon-citron et les oeufs durs en arbre de Noël, cuisine et personnel sympa, wifi gratuit et on ne pousse pas à la surconsommation, atmosphère un tiers Sorbonne (certains matins, profs et étudiants en grandes discussions sur l’avenir de la France ou la date limite de remise d’un rapport de mastère), un tiers touriste sachant lire et écrire (on n’est ni dans les quartiers pour tarés blindés de fric et autres dépensiers à crédit gratuit, ni trop près des débits de boissons industrielles pour dragueurs de tous genre et autres exhibitionnistes de cabriolet diesel en leasing, sextoys en location, et montres en toc), un tiers troquet honnête où l’on mange du sincère, et un petit tiers latino chic (la patronne, le secret du wifi, et la musique le matin). Et puis, un bon gros chat qui garde la terrasse à l’heure du laitier et va pisser négligemment dans les bacs à plantes quand il a vraiment envie de communiquer avec vous …

Bref, un des mes favoris pour le café du matin et plus si affinités.

The French (lovers) play hard with their toys

No comment, the world has complained for over a century, that the Eiffel Tower is undoubtedly a phallic gesture from France to the rest of the world, there’s just no point arguing about the 24 meter high, green, inflatable anal plug (some modern art lovers and oldschool gay activists pretend it was a a stylish Xmas tree and a provocative artistic experiment, let them talk) …

… that survived one afternoon Place Vendôme (in front of the Ritz, JP Morgan Bank, the finest and most expensive jewelers of Paris, the famous Paris “boutiques”, and the French Ministry of Justice …).

Sextoys never last, the Paris #FIAC erotic game is already over, but McCarthy’s exhibition starts October 25 at “la Monnaie de Paris”, Quai Conti.

Sunday morning and no Coffee ?

keepCalmAndDrinkBeer_KeepCalmShop

Life, mankind, the news on TV, and Sunday mornings cannot be all that bad.

In case there is no beer in the fridge, no fridge in house, or no place with cool beer in town, suspended (free) English coffee from Paris (what else ?) is available http://cestalire.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/british-coffee-please/

And, for those in a hurry, those who like it short, or those with a nostalgy for their sexy Roman Holiday, there’s always expresso “à volonté”http://cestalire.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/certains-laiment-court/

Keep Clam and Drink Expresso Coffee

But the Real Thing is, of course, French Coffee (and the best thing is, it’s free) http://cestalire.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/un-e-cafe-suspendu-au-hasard/
