It’s All Maya!

If Life is an illusion, then why do I keep banging my head against the wall?

Si la Vie est une illusion, pourquoi je n'arrête pas de me taper la tête sur les murs?

Something’s Wrong With This Picture And It Isn’t Miley Cyrus!

April 30th, 2008 · By Lynn

Something is definitely wrong when all the news is about a young teenage girl who had photographs taken showing less skin than most girls her age show on the beach!  Annie Leibovitz’s photos of Miley Cyrus for Vanity Fair are beautiful.  I see no reason for Miley to even apologize!  Yes, young girls look up […]

Let Them Eat Cake Or Let Them Ride Bikes!

April 29th, 2008 · By Lynn

Okay, so Marie-Antoinette didn’t say, “Let them eat cake.” when the people of France were on the verge of starvation and at the eve of a French Revolution, but Nicolas Sarkozy did say if you can’t afford to fill up your gas tank, then “ride a bike!”  With inflation increasing in France, tax blunders costing billions, […]

American Idol Carly Smithson

April 26th, 2008 · By Lynn

How do we justify the fact that Carly Smithson was eliminated from American Idol, while Brooke White and Jason Castro are still in the running?  Simple!  Most of these reality shows have nothing to do with talent, but more to do with a popularity contest!  As far as talent goes, Carly was by far the […]

To Lie Or Not To Lie About Your Age

April 25th, 2008 · By Lynn

Danielle Crittenden over at The Huffington Post wrote “How To Lie About Your Age“.  She brings up an important question that I have thought about for years.  Why do women lie about their age and take off five or ten years thinking that’ll fool people, when in reality all it does is make people think, […]

Place de Furstenberg

April 25th, 2008 · By Lynn

  The first time I saw this lovely little square hidden near l’Église Saint-Germain-des-Prés, it was a warm summer evening and a young French troubadour was playing his guitar and singing to an audience of people watching him from their apartment windows. I stopped to listen….. What can I say…..I, too, was young. Our eyes met […]

Will Mexico Have To Build A Wall Around Their Border To Keep Out Americans?

April 24th, 2008 · By Lynn

Americans returning to the US after a day of shopping in Mexico! This is a question that Americans may be hearing more and more often from their neighbors to the South!  Why?  For the simple reason that millions of Americans live right on the border with Mexico and as gas prices keep going up and […]

The Cour Saint-Pierre

April 22nd, 2008 · By Lynn

I mentioned the Cour Saint-Pierre in my post The Pope, The Dalai Lama, and Me!  It was the only time I had lived outside of the 6th arrondissement of Paris.  The Cour Saint-Pierre is a little passageway in the 17e and it was like living in a tiny village in France. Everyone who moved into this […]

April 21st, 2008 · By Lynn

As I was clearing out some papers yesterday, I found this dumb blonde joke that I found kind of funny, so I thought I would share it. A blonde is sitting in a 1st class seat for a flight to LA when the flight attendant asks to see her ticket. “Ma’am” the attendant says, “you […]

April 19th, 2008 · By Lynn

I wrote the other day that as an Independent voter, I may just go ahead and write Oprah’s name down for President for the simple reason that I just don’t care for any of the candidates running.  Well several friends asked me if I would really do it! The answer is:  No!  Don’t get me […]

Stuff White People Like – Fate or Free Will?

April 18th, 2008 · By Lynn

Why does a blog that has only been in the blogosphere for a few months get millions of visitors coming to its site, and a book deal to boot, while other blogs that have been around for years (and are just as good, if not better), hardly get any traffic at all?  If you ask me, it’s […]
