Fuck Marry Kill: Cher Lloyd, Barack Obama, River Song

I truly hate this omfg okay:

Kill Cher Lloyd because even though she’s cute I’m just not a fan tbh I liked her one song with Demi Lovato but that’s it

Michelle would probably murder me with her bare hands and I wouldn’t even fight her but saying “I fucked Barack Obama” would be the God damn funniest ice breaker/hoe adventure story. How fucking legendary would that be. I cannot believe I just fucking typed that out with my own hands.

Marry River Song- I don’t know for sure if she’d treat me right but dammit I love her so much holy shit.

30 Most Beautiful Castles in the World - 11/30

Château de Chenonceau is a French castle near the small village of Chenonceaux, France. The castle was built on the sire of an old mill on the River Cher, sometimes in the 11th century. It was designed by the French Renaissance architect Philibert de L'Orme. The castle became the favorite residence of Queen Catherine de Medici (wife of King Henry II) who added series of gardens around the castle. An architectural mixture of late Gothic and early Renaissance, the castle is classified as Monument Historique since 1840 by the French Ministry of Culture. Today the castle and its gardens are open to the public.

Danny’s version - Day 2 - Chateaux Day in the Loire Valley

Got an early start today with a great breakfast buffet at our hotel.  Then, by 9 a.m., we were off to Chateau Chenonceau, about a 30 minute drive from our hotel.   Château de Chenonceau is a French château spanning the River Cher, near the small village of Chenonceaux in the Loire Valley in France and is one of the best-known châteaux of the Loire valley.   The grounds were fabulous.  We bought tickets for the audio tour and it made this chateaux come to life.  It was built around 1514 and is right over the water and looks like a bridge spanning over the Cher river.  After the King seized it for unpaid debts from its owner, King Henry originally gave it as a gift to his mistresses (it pays to be girl on the side).   After the King died, his real wife, Catherine de’ Medici, kicked out the mistress. It was a sight to behold.

After our 3 hour tour, we drove an hour to the second best known château (and largest) called Château de Chambord.  This was gigantic.  It served as a hunting lodge for several French kings and was built by King Francis I.  King Louis XIV brought it back from decay and housed 1,200 horses here.  During WWII, most of the famous artwork from Paris was housed in this chateau.

We arrived back to our hotel around 6 p.m. and got ready for our last dinner in Amboise.  We again ate at Le 36.  If you read my blog from last night, you might have been a little jealous, but get that envy meter running again.  I started with escargot de la region and Laura had languoustines (shrimp) en kadaif.  Pictures do not do either one any justice.  The flavors were unreal.  For entrees, I had turbot roti au thym citron, which is a flatfish similar to flounder.  Laura had filet de beif de salers.  Wow, just look at our pictures and salivate.  For dessert, I had the souffle chaud (chocolate souffle) and Laura had pavlova aux augrumes et fruits.

After dinner, we thought that maybe we should have save Amboise for the last part of our trip, because I don’t know if we will eat 2 meals, back-to-back, like this for the rest of the trip or for the rest of our lives.  We took a walk around town, then came back to pack up. We depart for Limoge, Cognac and Margaux in the morning for 4 days.  Tomorrow will be a big driving day (5 hours), but plenty to see and stop for.  Au Revoir!
