C’est la me…… - Paris

paris  Cest la me......   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceAlthough C’est la me… has been going since 2005, there was only one entry for 2009. Amy, the blog’s author, seems to be making up for the drought with 4 posts so far in 2010.

The quality of the posts (and the subtle sense of humour that underlies them) has made me decide to feature this site today; quality over quantity!

I do wonder about the 9 month period between Deputise me! (a 527 word post about dog poo) and American Psycho (you need to have read the book to understand; and, if you do understand… perhaps this isn’t the right blog for you?)

What was Amy busy doing?




And, before anyone makes any comments about starved rats, chainsaws and Huey Lewis and the News, I’ll have you know that I’ve read the book more times than you’ve had hot dinners, owned possibly the first copy in the UK (I was working for a book wholesaler when it came out, and helped unload the lorry!) and it is the only book I’ve ever burned – I’ve burned all three copies that I’ve owned!

Come to think about it, wasn’t one of Patrick Bateman’s victims supposedly spotted in Paris?

Let’s move on, shall we…

I have a feeling that Amy might enjoy a little nibble of cheese from time to time.  Posts like… Photos of my Favourite Fromagerie do tend to give the game away.   Also, when someone admits to liking a cheese that “smells like wet running shoes and has enough salt to require beta blockers (good thing France has a pharmacy on every corner and pills are cheaper than cheese)” you know that she’s a foodie!

Now, let’s get back to the important stuff… You can gorge yourself senseless on Camembert and Tome de Chèvre and then go all Oooey Gooey over some Pineapple Upside Down Cake before hitting Paris, On all Fours!

Why not meet Freddie the Pimp, learn a bit about Amy’s Life in France and then find out why the French think about Amy’s blog in This is Sh&*!

But, I don’t want to give all the best bits away so, why not pop over there yourself and find out what those three dots stand for at C’est la me…!

All the best

    Hi Keith, Thank you so much for featuring my blog! What a nice surprise. I’ve already scrolled down the page and found several other blogs I want to check out, including yours. And as for what I was doing, I’ll leave the question unanswered because I assure you the mystery of not knowing is way more interesting than the reality :)

    Hi Amy

    Take a good look round. Even I’m surprised at the amount of great Life in France blogs there are out there! Everyone is different; I guess that why I like hunting down the good ones.

    I hope a few people come and visit your blog, as a result. I hope you get your Turbo Tax problems sorted out.

    Tax! In my humble one…. Robin Hood had the right idea!
