Hi, I'm Louise, and I write things.
Welcome to the snake's den!
To the A-hole who almost ran us over with his car in a pedestrian area, got agressive because we yelled at him and then called my boyfriend a faggot for leaving without fighting him

(you just won the biggest jerk of 2014 award)
calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how
Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.

I got tagged (I liked being tagged) and I enjoyed making that list !
in a text post, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard - they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. tag 10 friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
Some of these books are french and except for the classics I have no idea if they have been translated into english so I’ll just describe them.
1 - Anne of the Island, Lucy Maud Montgomery. The 3rd in the series, when Anne goes to university.
2 - Blue, Joël Houssin. Different gangs fight for supermacy in post nuclear war Paris. The walled city is perpetually fogged up by smoke and clouds and guarded by telepathic mutants who prevent anyone from leaving. Charismatic gang leader Blue decides to make an alliance with other gangs to climb the wall and escape. Very short novel that I still read every 6 months or so 10 years afer discovering it.
3 - La bibliothécaire, Gudule. A group of high school kids meet the ghost of a librarian and she guides them through the classics of literature hopping from book to book, meeting characters.
4 - Cousin Bette, Balzac. The way she weaves her trap around her condescending family, it still sends chills down my spine. Go, Bette!
5 - Far Rainbow, Boris and Arkady Strugatski. Because Russian sci-fi.
6 - Arcadia, Tom Stoppard. Fractals. Music. Entropy.
7 - City, Clifford D. Simak. I remember wanting to present it at school and the teacher said “no SF” and I asked “why?” and she said “because it’s not good enough.” Really?
8 - Northern Lights, Philip Pullman (The Golden Compass in the US). Who didn’t want to be as badass as Lyra?
9 - Foundation, Isaac Asimov. The political plays that eventually place intelligence over brute force, the dangers of looking down on others for the holders of such intelligence… This one has everything, it’s my favourite in the series (I love the rest of the books, but I had to pick one)
10 - Les Thanatonautes, Bernard Werber. (The Thanatonauts) Researchers explore the continent of death to understand what happens in the afterlife. The passage where the different nations on Earth send armies of “ectoplasms” to gain supremacy on the afterlife is deliciously absurd.
and i was sure i’d tagged you but apparently not because i had reached ten : yumisheadisfullofshit <3
