Thanks Kallisti, you've just reminded me that I ordered that book like 2 months ago but I guess I accidently pulled instead of pushing something so I never got anything!

I haven't had pea soup today, but lobster bisque works just as well.
Oh...wtf? Suddenly I'm picturing Kallisti in a nun outfit.

You know, ever since rotten.com made the unfortunate discovery that Amelie looks like Mr. Bean, it just hasn't been the same for me.

Le Fabuleux Album d'Amélie Poulain
For that, and much, much more ...
|By Abelard on Sunday, March 31, 2002 - 07:14 pm: Edit|
WOWWWWWW!!...That piccy is soo cool!!
I read that the owner of the cafe was going to sell cuz biz was so slow but after the film came out his business skyrocketed and there are tour buses stopping there all day and night.
So I guess Amelie makes good things happen even in real life!

Oh yeah, the whole name of the real cafe in Amelie is
"Cafe Tabac les Deux Moulins" In the movie it looks totally 50s.
|By Abelard on Sunday, March 31, 2002 - 08:47 am: Edit|
The cafe in Amelie address is 15 rue Lepic. I've been to the "Bar Au Coin" on Rue Lepic across from Moulin de la Galette. That was the model for the "Bar Coin de la Rue" that was in featured in the movie "Ronin". Although, that one was constructed in a studio in Paris.
Anyway, I love Paris and would love to eventually move there..

in your honor, abelard, i went out and douched myself (stop it! douche means 'shower') with some L.L. ...my wife approves, even though she is not a great fan of absinthe...next stop, to actually see the amelie movie...the cafe does exist, but not with that name...there is a 'les deux moulins'
in paris, but it is in a crappy modern building in the 13th, near place d'italie...i'm not sure if i have been in the one in the movie...apparently, the movie really plays on everyone's ideal about montmartre...you don't 'flan' in my neighborhood (montmartre-bis), which is more like a scene out of 'soilent green'...

Oh, pshaw ... and I thought being a Stumpette was such a glamourous profession.
|By Abelard on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 08:54 pm: Edit|
Ooops, I meant strumpet.
Your beguiling persona has made me mispell the simplest of wirds!
|By Admin on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 08:40 pm: Edit|
I playz it like I seez it. It's a stumpet, alright.
|By Abelard on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 07:54 pm: Edit|
did you mean stumpet or sexophone??
Musically speaking,that is..
|By Admin on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 07:48 pm: Edit|
oh, and uh ... I obviously spell like one too.
(surreptitiously fixes type-o)
|By Admin on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 07:45 pm: Edit|
Oh! You make me feel just like a school girl again.

"Is that an offer, Heloise?".. Abelard queeried..
|By Destiny on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 05:17 pm: Edit|
Is that the same Helois that gives household tips?
|By Admin on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 04:45 pm: Edit|
"I'd rather be your strumpet than [Augustus'] empress." - paraphrased Heloise, 12th cent.
Amelie ... yummmmm

Now concerning the drinkability of LaFee, I wouldn't go so far as to say it has the quality of an eau de toilette but I did happen to spill some on my dining room table
and found that it brought out a lustre in the walnut heretofore unseen. So as far as furniture goes it definitely has it's uses!!
And if you ever run out of an inflammable liquid to soak your Tiki-torches in LaFee will totally come in very handy as well!
Next, I will see how that pesky wallpaper reacts to it...

Actually, when jade finally arrives, Ill take a couple of 250ml bottles full over to france on my next trip, if customs says anything, I thought I could just say it was aftershave.
|By Abelard on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 10:28 am: Edit|
Hey, that would be cool Petermarc!!
I'm am definitely un"flanneur"..
Have you ever gone to the cafe that was featured in Amelie, Les deux Moulins on Rue Lepic??
|By Petermarc on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 10:22 am: Edit|
actually, that would probably give you the effect of wandering aimlessly in my corner of the 18eme...
|By Baz on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 09:20 am: Edit|
If you try it, I bet it tastes like serpis...
|By Abelard on Friday, March 29, 2002 - 09:12 am: Edit|
I'm new here and rather than join in some previous melee I'd just like to share in some absinthe-fired cheer.
Not that I'm inviting anyone to come over and sniff me but I do wear Lolita Lempicka pour masculin, a scent that features Absinthe as it's main ingredient along with violet and vanilla.
I'm not sure if I'm ready to drop a sugar cube in it and swill the stuff though..
