Flu \o/ Also, i'll try to update this journal more + ask me anything meme

I'm ill ! Flu symptoms!

Doctor told me it was a good idea to come because it might be indeed flu. I'm gonna stay home for 4 days.

It means no karate and not going to high school on Monday, because i could pass it on the kids, unwise.

I watched the 2 first episode of scrubs, season 9. Good surprise! I thought the show was over!


Also, since i answered Londonwolf's journal, i'm compelled to do it too: you can ask me anything, i'll answer. only one question per person though.
...i somehow have the feeling i will regret that :p

Anyway i have no friends on LJ or so :D

I'm Home [rant xP]

After 36 hours without sleeping or so, and 24h of non-stop travelling, i'm back home, finally.
I went to AC and due to people i met on IRC, i was able to stay for 10 days in California.

God, making the way back home was painful though.

For a start, i planned to stay in california longer, but a friend of mine had problems so i had to book another flight....bim, 500 euros...and to cancel another flight i booked long time ago, which makes a loss of 250 euros. yay.

I went to LA, got in the plane. 11 hours later, plane land at Dusseldorf (Germany), where i have to take a connecting flight to Paris.
At Dusseldorf, just to be sure, i go the luggage/information point, to ask i have to pick my luggage and take care of it myself to the next flight, the lady says no, show me my ticket and tell me everything is alright very clearly.
I hop on the next flight.

Finally. After 14 hours of flying, i'm in France. Home sweet home indeed, after 5 minutes, i already hear people ranting or behaving like assholes.

First thing to do, pick up my luggage. I was there before the delivery started, waiting...and nothing. Everybody got its stuff, but not me.
Me being a good french, i start to curse, wondering why i went back to that shitty country (which might me the reason why french people tend to rant and being all bitchy =p) : it's been 20 min i'm home and it's already painful....well it's not home, it's Paris, and i hate Paris.

So yeaaaaah, they lost my luggage. Cool. All clothes, and my snowleopard tail in it...which is actually the thing i treasure the most in it...i love my tail =/

Guess what! I was supposed to meet buddies in Paris. Despite charging my phone for 30 min before i left LA, my phone went to bed in less than 30 seconds after i woke him up...


yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ヽ( ゚ ▽`゚)ノ ・゜゚・*:.。..。.:*

So lets sum it up. After 14 hours of flight, i feel dirty, hungry and really tired (because i tried to sleep but failed, i got nothing to eat in the plane, not a real meal at least, and i didnt have to occasion to WASH), my luggage has been lost, and i'm absolutely unable to contact anybody. FUCKING RAD.

I went to the luggage desk, told the woman i didn't see my luggage coming, she went to have a look, felt sorry for me and started to fill a paper or two. Finally she told me they were going to take care of it, she has enough information to start looking for it.
I hopefully should get a call from the airport in the next days. or not <_<

After 30 min of research i finally found a working internet access point in the airport (needless to say i cursed for a while) and managed to get in touch with some murryfurries i knew...i asked them to phone the buddies i was looking for, but they didnt get any answer. All they could do was to leave vocal messages.

So, yeah...too bad, but i HAD to leave Paris ASAP, to get back home in Lille.

So, 2 hours of walking / RER later, in Paris (i think i told you i hate Paris already) i reach the train station.
I booked a train for Lille. I realize my train card expired, so i'll have to pay 100% of price. No discount. For a train in an hour.
My wallet would have committed seppuku if it could.

I had an hour to wait. I went to Quick, which is a fast-food i like a lot.
I queued 20 min. There were only 3 people in front of me. Bitching about who was there first.
Bitching about how expensive the burger was, outside of a meal.
Still wondering about what they were gonna order, despite being there for 30 min.

Fuck you, France.

I got my meal. i ate my first sandwich. It was kinda lame compared to the good / quality burgers USA had. But still. Not to bad.
My fries were all wet and didnt actually taste like fries. my second burger was just not edible, cause it went cold in the train station.
Dammit, i was so happy and relieved to fin a Quick and thought it was gonna be the small light in the dark to relieve me from the stress and shitty day i had. But no, it made it even worse.

1h30 of train/bus later. I'm home. Finally.
My parents were home and not asleep, i was surprised to see them, i thought they were in vacation.

I finally ate something, took a shower, and went to bed.
Theres a lasagna in the oven, it's ready now.

God. i hate this country. i'm just glad theres cheap good lasagnas and my parents.

La politique en 2 vaches ! (Politics with 2 cows)

Taken from some website, pretty well known stuff i guess!


BRITISH DEMOCRACY: You have 2 cows. You feed them sheep's brains and they go mad. The government doesn't do anything.

BUREAUCRACY: You have 2 cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. After that it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.

CAPITALISM: You have 2 cows. You sell one and buy a bull which you use to breed the other cow as well as every other cow in the area. Then you start exporting sperm from the bull to emerging markets. After several years of expansion, your company issues an IPO to be listed on the NYSE. The SEC eventually intends legal proceedings against you and your spouse for insider trading. After a lengthy court battle, you are found guilty and sentenced to 10 years in prison, of which you actually serve 7 weeks. When you come out of prison, you buy 2 chickens. Then ...

HONG KONG CAPITALISM: You have 2 cows. You sell 3 of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all 4 cows back, with a tax deduction for keeping 5 cows. The milk rights of 6 cows are transferred via a Panamanian intermediary to a Cayman Islands company secretly owned by the majority shareholder, who sells the rights to all 7 cows' milk back to the listed company and proceeds from the sale are deferred. The annual report says that the company owns 8 cows, with an option on one more. Meanwhile, you kill the 2 cows because the feng shui is bad.

DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.

ENVIRONMENTALISM: You have 2 cows. The government bans you from milking or killing them.

FEMINISM: You have 2 cows. They get married and adopt a veal calf.

TOTALITARIANISM: Your have 2 cows. The government takes them and denies they ever existed. Milk is banned.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: You are associated with (the concept of "ownership" is a symbol of the phallo-centric, war-mongerism, intolerant past) 2 differently aged (but no less valuable to society) bovines of unpecified gender.

COUNTER CULTURE: Wow, dude, there's like ... these 2 cows, man. You got to have some of this milk!

SURREALISM: You have 2 giraffes. The government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

LIBERTY: Whatever.

A CHRISTIAN: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.

A REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So what?

A DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into office who tax your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous.

A COMMUNIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk.

A FASCIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you the milk. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

A FRENCH CORPORATION: You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.

A GERMAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

AN ITALIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows but you don't know where they are. You break for lunch.

A RUSSIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A MEXICAN CORPORATION: You think you have two cows, but you don't know what a cow looks like. You take a nap.

A SWISS CORPORATION: You have 5000 cows, none of which belongs to you. You charge for storing them for others.

A BRAZILIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You enter into a partnership with an American corporation. Soon you have 1000 cows and the American corporation declares bankruptcy.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You worship them.
