Jacques Le Greasy Frenchie


As a rule, I usually prefer not to dicuss the fatuous exploits of my social and sentimental life, because, Number One, who cares? And Number Two, as the vaguely forgotten pop star Ben Lee once sang, a lot goes on but nothing ever happens.

Still, a lot does go on. And sometimes it's too absurd for words, too cliche to believe that it's actually happening to me, and yet so real that I have to begin to wonder who the fuck up there finds this all so funny.

I won't even mention Nicolas the juvenile Serbian architect whose best answer to anything was to smile broodingly and insult me...or Ricca the bubbly manager-slash-artist who treated me to dessert...or John, the earnest artist who thinks there should be more good news--awww--in the world...or even Jean-Pierre, shirt designer-slash-project manager-slash-Ecuadorian-Colombian-Francophile who kept me from physically assaulting Nicolas.

No, let's jump straight ahead to the end of the evening, and to Jacques. A few weeks ago you may have read a story in the New York Times, in the magazine's new funny pages, about a filmmaker named Jacques who accosted the story's author on an F-train home to Brooklyn, flattered her Frenchily, asked for her number, took her to the movies at the Anjelika, and then let out with a passive-aggressive anti-semitic screed directed at the author whose most defining feature was, apparently, looking semitic.

Guess who still rides the F train to Brooklyn? Jackie!

But Jacques didn't even flatter me Frenchily. He just followed me out of the subway and said, deadpan, without even an introduction: "Kin I 'ave yohr nohm-bear?" Jacques was under-dressed and greasy. Jacques was too greasy-looking even for a Godard movie. And Jacques had to be fucking kidding. First of all, I'd read about the anti-semitic dickwad in the friggin' New York Times. Second of all, Jacques, you must have been smoking a friggin' crack pipe on the F train home, because you are going to have say at least one really really nice thing about me before I'll even tell you my name. LET ALONE MY NUMBER, YOU GREASY VICHY COLLABORATOR.

Maybe Jacques and Nicolas should have a drink, not that assholes and antisemites have anything in common.

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.

I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can
import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Hey just stumbled upon your blog from Google after I entered in,
"Blogger: SHAKING blog" or perhaps something similar
(can't quite remember exactly). In any case, I'm delighted I found it simply because your
subject material is exactly what I'm searching for (writing a university paper) and I hope you don't mind if
I gather some information from here and I will of course credit you as the source.
Thank you very much.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running
off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd
post to let you know. The style and design look great though!
Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My website has a lot of unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd definitely appreciate it.

I am new to building web sites and I was wondering if having your site title related to your content
really that crucial? I see your title, "Blogger: SHAKING blog " does appear to be spot
on with what your website is about but, I prefer to keep my
title less content descriptive and based more around site branding.
Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
Any help would be greatly valued.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
However think about if you added some great images or video clips to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be
one of the greatest in its niche. Good blog!
