@omg-okimhere I hear you and coffee have a love story, this made me think of you (it’s in English ;))

I love discovering etymological links between languages, like today I was talking to someone about how a circumflex in French indicates a lost s after the vowel and they were like “so même used to be mesme then?” And I was like “WAAAAH THAT MAKES SO MUCH SENSE BECAUSE IT’S MISMO IN SPANISH THIS IS SO EXCITING” and this is probably why I don’t have friends

“La flemme” is such a good expression honestly


“La flemme”, short for “j’ai la flemme” (I have the flemme) roughly means the mental (and/or physical) incapacity of doing a generally simple task, of doing anything really, but also takes a slightly ironical acknowledgement of the link made between this incapacity and laziness, as the best way to translate would be “I’m too lazy/tired for this right now” even though the meaning actually covers a broader idea of discouragement and ennui.

So yeah. La flemme.

Good grief! 

Been thinking about making some notes in this colour scheme. :)

The books have been around for a long time; they’re older than me (I kept it because… Snoopy). Pretty sure the Charlie Brown toy was from a Happy Meal xD It’s been on my shelf until now. At some point I crocheted an egg and here it is xD
