A Few Of My Favourite Things...

1. I really like these tops, made by Locher's, a shop in Paris.





2. A Chanel bangle engraved with the message "L'elegance, c'est la ligne." My French is très crap, so I think it translates as "Elegance, it is a straight line" (??) This sounds appalling silly, so everyone who knows better, please let me know what it means.

3. Just as well Dr Gregory House is a fictional character, because I am fairly sure I could be arrested in several countries for the things I would like to do to him. Woof woof!



4. Stronger by Kanye West is currently my absolute favourite song. The line where he quotes Pamela Anderson, "...that [which does not] kill me, can only make me stronger" is brilliant. However, I'm bound to be caught quoting, "So how the hell could you front on me? There's a thousand you's, there's only one of me."

Too right.

1. The coffee & milk seem unnecessary
2. I think Coco's bon mot is Elegance - that's the look
3. Dogged by the previous entry?
4. The kills you line is Fat Freddy Nietzsche. Pamsie must have been reading Götzen-Dämmerung, oder Wie man mit dem Hammer philosophiert at bedtime.

Quel crétin fini! The francophones say that the correct translation is: "Elegance comes from the cut"

Cactus Kate said...

I think I love House as well.

Get to the back women! I've been at the top of the Dr Gregory House queue since day one and I'll fight any bitch that tries to get in my way......

Mark said...

Being a drug addicted, irascible cripple is sexually appealing to women?

My ship has finally come in! take a number ladies, there's plenty for everyone...

It's to do with the power and 'risk taking,' Mark ... Clinton would have been blown away beit he was ambulant or wheelchair bound ... sort of a primitive thing I believe, something like, if you eat the vanquished you take on their powers ... and moreso if their powers remain unimpeded... perpetual symbiosis so to speak.
But it shouldn't give you hope, 'it's to do with the elegance of the cut.'

Mark said...

"But it shouldn't give you hope, 'it's to do with the elegance of the cut.'"

Gee, thanks, Mojo. I love you too.

Thank-you, Kublai, that makes sense, even if the translation is a bit dull. Just goes to show, everything sounds better in French.

Mark - H is for Hot.

Mojo - huh?

Ladies - a duel to the death it is then...

Mark said...

F is for Flamin' hot...

Best Smithy post ever.

Everyone knows ladies love cool House. It's also a scientific fact that people either watch House or Gray's. There is no room for overlap.

Robyn

You are making Mrs Smith sound like a Cricket commentator.

One doubts she has ever watched a Cricket match in her life, let alone ever been called "Smithy".

How God awful.

Mrs Smith said...

Don't worry, Cactus, I allow Robyn her impertinence. Since she was the first person brave enough to leave a snotty comment on this blog, I think she has earned the right.

"The line where he quotes Pamela Anderson"

Goethe, actually.

Pamela Anderson "well for two lines I'll flash them for you"

Mrs Smith said...

Then Goethe ripped her off. I read it in an interview she did after one of her divorces.

..."For two lines." That's a bargain.

Mark said...

Bargain my ass. Foe a millisecond peek at a couple of overinflated balloons? Have you seen the price of blow these days?
