Voici la deuxième page d'espace détente. J'ai modifié le lien en tête de la page d'accueil de telle sorte qu'on arrive directement sur cette page à présent.

Pour retourner sur la page espace détente 1 il suffit de la chercher dans les archives en décembre 2005 et ainsi de suite au fur et à mesure de la création de ces pages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 etc.

Flocon a dit…

Bon, j'ai réussi à faire cet enregistrement et vous pouvez l'écouter à cette adresse.

Comme c'est un fichier w.m.p il faut l'enregistrer sur votre ordi pour l'écouter, je ne me suis pas lancé dans une conversion en MP3 qui aurait permis une écoute en ligne.

Je l'ai déjà fait mais il faut télécharger un convertisseur (switch converter) et quand j'ai voulu m'en servir, les 15 jours d'essai gratuit étaient passés.

Anyway, you can hear the stress when one speaks in a mic. with nobody in front :-D

Not quite natural but that's my voice anyway.

Anijo a dit…

Flocon,
Finally I get to hear your sexy French accent! Thank you! I love it! I keep listening to the recording over and over. You have a certain British accent mixed with just a hint of a French accent when you speak English. You sound quite natural to me. The only words that really give away your accent were 'message' and 'semperfidelis'.

You have a kind and gentle voice that is oh sooo sexy. yum! With a voice like that I can forgive you of anything. ;)

Thank you!

What a wonderful morning for me. ☺

Anijo a dit…

Oh, by the way. I can't quite make out what you're saying right after you say "bounjour Christine".

Anijo a dit…

Oh, one more thing. I couldn't quite make out what you were saying when you said, "I don't have pretty picture of ??? garden"..

Flocon a dit…

Anijo,

"I can't quite make out what you're saying right after you say "bounjour Christine".

Les dames d'abord!

"I couldn't quite make out what you were saying when you said, "I don't have pretty picture of ??? garden".

Sun-bathed garden

"The only words that really give away your accent were 'message' and 'semperfidelis'.

I can manage to handle these two words correctly but .. the stress Anijo, the stress...

I'll have another try later, I have to go now...

(See you later alligator :-D)

Flocon a dit…

"Oh, one more thing"

Anijo as Inspector Colombo...

Christine a dit…

Ouiiiiiiii! C'est vraiment formidable de mettre une voix sur "un pote virtuel" (Anijo aime l'expression, j'en profite!). Et en plus, vous avez une belle voix, Flocon, claire, grave comme il faut, articulée et modulée! Si seulement j'avais eu des profs d'anglais avec une voix aussi enjôleuse, j'aurais été une cador!

A mon tour, maintenant! Vous excuserez les piètres performances techniques; en plus (scrogneugneu) je n'ai pu filmer mon café préféré! Pas une seule chaise n'était en terrasse, et c'était d'un triste!
Enfin,impossible d'associer les beaux liens bleus avec les vidéos! Il vous faudra recopier les adresses.
Allez, c'est parti! La première pour Anijo et vous http://www.divshare.com/download/13844082-b35 et celle-là spécialement pour vous, Flocon http://www.divshare.com/download/13844111-802

Christine,

"impossible d'associer les beaux liens bleus avec les vidéos!"

Qu'est-ce que c'est que cette histoire?

Première vidéo

Troisième enregistrement"

En se servant de l'égaliseur Windows media player on obtient une qualité tout à fait satisfaisante.

Anijo a dit…

I am in heaven listening to you two, Flocon and Christine. J'aimerai être au 'terrasse' en Evreux avec tous les deux. Mais, on est là quand même virtuellement !

Christine, you have that beautiful voice that I am so attracted to in French women.

Flocon,
Troisième... C'est toi ?... Oh my... your voice when you speak French is like honey to my ears.. C'est plus fort que moi..

Anijo a dit…

Sun-bathed

You pronounce the 'a' in 'bathed' as an Englishman would, with a delicious hint of French. This is why I didn't understand.

I spent an afternoon in London with an Irishman and I didn't even understand everything that he said.

Xtine a dit…

Merci Flocon de la petite bande son! Moi aussi, je connais une famille sur ce boulevard, ou plutôt un couple chez lequel j'ai passé quelques heures il y a longtemps, en me demandant ce que je faisais chez eux! C'était un truc surréaliste! Un truc de fous!Je les fuis désormais dès que je les aperçois, et comme Evreux est une petite ville, j'ai parfois la malchance de les rencontrer deux à trois fois dans la même journée! Damned! (ma sociabilité a des limites!)

Non, je ne connaissais pas Divshare, mais bon je me suis dit que si vous y étiez arrivé, je devais y parvenir aussi! Dans le genre "je peux le faire", je m'y connais!

Pour les manipulations techniques, j'ai eu la chance de suivre une matinée de formation à la médiathèque d'Evreux et j'ai pu revoir il y a 15 jours, en cours particulier presque, toujours dans le même lieu, le formateur qui m'a initiée à la création d'un blog!
J'avais listé les soucis que j'avais rencontrés. Je n'ai donc aucun mérite si ce n'est celui d'avoir appliqué les consignes, ce qui n'est pas sorcier!

Anijo, je suis contente d'avoir réussi à te faire parvenir ma voix, du fin fond d'une petite ville française provinciale. Oui, nous n'irons pas à cette terrasse (et non "au terrasse") pour l'instant: du reste, il y fait trop froid!
Ben dis donc, tu es très sensible à la voix de Flocon! As-tu bien dormi au moins?

Ned Ludd a dit…

Le Pétit Journal sur Canal + montre de temps en temps des erreurs dans le titres ou sous-titres que on peut voir dans les journaux télévisé.

Mais j'ai vu une aujourd'hui sur BFM, un "news channel". Ils ont écrit, "nuéclair", qui était resté plusieurs minutes pendant un interview avec un expert.

Flocon a dit…

Ned,

Listen... err...do you mean nuéclair like... err... I mean... nucular?

Flocon a dit…

Christine,

"je connais une famille//...// en me demandant ce que je faisais chez eux!"

Si l'on pense aux centaines, aux milliers d'heures de notre vie qui ont été perdues dans des relations stériles, des rituels sociaux, des liens familiaux avec des gens qui n'ont rien à nous dire et réciproquement, c'est désespérant.

Flocon a dit…

Question perte de temps il y a quelque chose que je viens de découvrir et qui s'appelle Désencyclopedie.

Parodie de ce que vous savez, ça peut amuser, moi pas- mais il faut vraiment ne pas savoir quoi faire de son temps.

La vie est si courte et il y a tant à apprendre...

Promis, je n'y ai pas consacré 2 minutes, juste le temps de voir e que c'était!

Anijo a dit…

La vie est si courte et il y a tant à apprendre...

So true. Pierian Spring and all...

I'm still working on my painting of the two 'Romans'. These two Romans are Flocon and Christine because they are the only two people on SWT who I have a clue as concerning what they look like and who they are. I keep changing the painting because as each day passes by I acquire an additional concept of who is Flocon and who is Christine.

Christine a dit…

Ben je ne me jetterai pas dans la lecture de cette Désencyclopédie qui au fond est représentative de la "culture" qu'on voudrait nous imposer! Plus c'est gras, plus c'est comique, paraît-il... Ne surtout pas trop réfléchir!
En tout cas, important de savoir que ça existe.Merci Flocon!
Bonne journée.

Christine a dit…

Anijo,
Es-tu sûre que le modèle féminin dont tu parles vaille la peine d'être représenté?
Bonne journée à toi!

Flocon a dit…

Anijo,

"These two Romans are Flocon and Christine"

Beware Anijo, people will go "They're sitting on a branch, they're sitting on a branch, na na na.."

Flocon a dit…

Patti Smith has become a Parisian icon for some times now.

Une semaine lui est consacrée à la Cité de la musique avec des articles dans le Figaro Madame (oui!) dans Libération, dans le Monde, les Inrockuptibles etc.

Horses

I remember talking of her to a couple of American tourists three years ago but they didn't know who she was.

Anijo a dit…

Beware Anijo, people will go "They're sitting on a branch, they're sitting on a branch, na na na.."

ha ha!

Henry and Eliza sitting in a tree:

K-I-S-S-I-N-G

First comes love,

then comes marriage,

then comes Kimmy in a baby carriage!

Flocon a dit…

The French version goes:

Hou ! la menteuse (zeu)
Elle est amoureuse (zeu)

Hou ! la menteuse (zeu)
Elle est amoureuse (zeu)


It works only for girls as far as I know. Et Christine connaît la rengaine (neu)

Anijo a dit…

Alors, si qqn dit "hou ! la menteuse (zeu) etc", je leur répondrai,

Flocon(neu) et Xtine(neu),
ce sont des bons copains(neu)
Et ça ne va pas plus loin(neu)

Flocon a dit…

Anijo,

The rhymes doen't work quite like that (neu neu will have French people laugh because it basically means "simpleton").

In French, if you proounce menteuses aloud you'll notice the ending is zeu like is that of amoureuse.

So it's just a repetition of the ending of the menteuse et amoureuse words.

It doesn't work with Flocon (neu) which, by some sort of chance, means flaky :-D

It works with Xtine (neu) since her name ends with "ne".

It definitively doesn't work with "copain" et "loin". That would give copain (ain) et loin (ouin).

Ned Ludd a dit…

Flocon, une autre erreur des sous-titres. Le journalist parlait d'une personne "démissionaire" mais les sous-titres donnaient "des missionaires".

Flocon a dit…

Ned,

They meant "nucular missionaries" that is.

Anijo a dit…

thank you for the corrections Flocon. I'm not sure what picture as a gift I could give you though..

Flocon a dit…

The picture would be fine Anijo. Just there are two Romans and we don't know who they are...

What about Julius et Cornelia? ;-)

Anijo a dit…

Right, we don't know who they are, but they have a certain resemblance to a kind and intelligent Parisien and a kind and intelligent Ébroïcienne.

Anijo a dit…

I finally completed the painting of mes deux potes virtuels.

I don't have a very good camera and the natural light is a bit weak at this time of evening, but there it is.

Flocon a dit…

Merci pour le cadeau Anijo ☺

No doubt Julius the Roman resembles very much someone I know in my neighbourhood... ;-)

I've photoshoped the painting, you tell me how you feel about it. There are many options available, all suggestions are welcome.

But why haven't you added a third figure, that of a kind and intelligent New-Mexican?

Re "pote", it's mainly used between teens (girls and boys) or between men but not between women (unless they're diehard lesbians).

But here it's OK since you adress both a man and a woman.

Maybe is pote tantamount to buddy or pal, don't know.

Maybe can Ned help?

Anijo a dit…

It looks good Flocon. Thank you.

I used "pote" as a nod to Xtine. She'll get it. I think of it as meaning "pal". One translation I found on line was "dude", but that doesn't seem right to me. The Brits and Aussies use "mate" and that seems to be about right.

I've never done a self portrait. I don't think I could depict myself.

Anijo a dit…

Ferrer beat Nadal :(

Still, this is an enjoyable, competitive and interesting tennis open in Australia. I'm looking forward to the Djokovic / Federer match.

Djokovic is a character. He does some amusing imitations of fellow tennis players. Federer is a beautifully graceful tennis player.

Flocon a dit…

Anijo,

I was very much in tennis between 1980 (the year I took interest) and 2001 when France won the Davis cup for the last time.

I remember the final in 1996 when my heartbeat was going 120/min and my blood pressure was about 18/12... and then I decided it wasn't worth getting all shook up just for a sport event.

2 players I liked very much in the 70s/80s were Jimmy Connors and Chris Evert. Also there was Jim Courrier who enthralled the Parisians because he could speak French.

I now follow very loosely sports, I'm not interested in the least in football (European one of course) save in 1998 when France won the world title.

But I'm very much a fan of rugby and ever was since I was 12.

But not for the reasons you can see on the picture of course. I've heard that some ladies don't find these guys totally unattractive. Go figure, I do! :-D

Anijo a dit…

Wow! I was enjoying my morning libation and about spit some coffee on the keyboard when I clicked on the picture! I was expecting a link to what your friend had to say about Rugby. Those are indeed very handsome men. wow...

I enjoy tennis, but I don't get all worked up about it. Although I like Nadal a lot, I also enjoy watching the other players. And over the years, women's tennis has improved and has a wider field of players now. I don't watch any other sports though.

Federer speaks French fluently and the French crowd at Roland Garros like him a lot.

Have you seen this?

A hacker took over French President Nicolas Sarkozy's Facebook account and issued a fake message that he would not run for re-election in 2012, local media reported on Monday, hours before the president was due to outline the agenda of France's G20 presidency.

"Taking into account exceptional circumstances facing our country, I decided in my soul and conscience not to represent myself after my first term in 2012," the message posted on his Facebook account said.

Anijo a dit…

Facebook: la page de Sarkozy piratée

“Chers compatriotes, compte tenu des circonstances exceptionnelles que connaît notre pays, j’ai décidé en mon âme et conscience de ne pas me représenter à l’issue de mon premier mandat en 2012.

Flocon a dit…

Roger Federer has a lovely personality as far as I know and yes he speaks French, German (his native tongue), English and possibly some other language.

Yes, I read about the fake annoucement of Sarko retiring.

Anijo, do you know that you, me and two other people have left an enduring impression on people we haven't been in touch with for more than three years?

I personaly,"was and still pissed off about everything American."

The things I learn about myself on the Internet! Amazing :-D

Anijo a dit…

I just learned that I'm "just plain pissy about life", and that I'm from France! lol

Seems that Ms Miami is also from France..

Yes, Flocon, you're so pissed off about everything American and that's why you spend time talking to a pissy American on your blog everyday.

Flocon a dit…

When Greg writes "if i'm not mistaken, france has had a law legalizing squatters in 'abandoned' buildings for quite some time."
he's utterly wrong but not totally off base though.

He probably refers to the existing law which prohibits eviction of tenants who don't pay the rent (but I don't know if it applies to squatters) from the 15th of December until the 15th of March. I'm not certain about the dates but that's about it.

Now SF isn't exactly the kind of man to be pissed off because someone left his blog at some time...

Pathetically hilarious!

Djokovich is up a break in sets and up a break in the current game in his match with Federer!

What a great tennis match!

Anijo a dit…

Djokovich won ! I believe that it's Murray and Djokovich in the final!

Anijo a dit…

Well, I'm assuming that Murry will beat Ferrer, and when one assumes one makes an ass out of u and me, so nevermind.

Flocon a dit…

I forgot there was a David Ferrer playing tennis...

Do you mean that Ferrer?

But why are his pants so distorded? Oh, yes, I remember now: they keep their balls in their pockets... (blush blush)

Anijo a dit…

re picture of Ferrer. LOL! One might think that he was really enjoying his tennis.

Flocon a dit…

Wikipedia never ceases to amaze me.

They have pages for historic, statistics etc.

The French are supposed to be stuck in the past and regarding Napoleon as their grandest hero.

Se that page on Wiki about how many times the Napoleon article has been viewed in France during that month of january. 3.737 fois.

And that page about Justin Bieber.

1,448,126 times in 201101. This article ranked 29 in traffic on en.wikipedia.org.

Napoleon has met his second Waterloo...

Murray beat Ferrer, so it will be Murry vs Djokovic for the final on Sunday. Should be a great match!

Jim Courier is now interviewing Murray.

Anijo a dit…

Justin Bieber

One of Obama's daughters is a big Bieber fan. This young man has a lot of fans. He got his start on Youtube as an amateur.

These days more people are interested in entertainment personalities than they are in history.

Flocon a dit…

My bet is on Djokovic parce que c'est un teigneux!

-----------

Now I mentioned Justin Bieber cause I've read his name but I had to search to know who he is and what he looks like.

I haven't heard a single second anything that he sings.. Just to tell you how much pissed off I'm still as regarding all things American!!! :-D

Anijo a dit…

My bet is on Djokovic parce que c'est un teigneux!

Oui, je le crois aussi.

I haven't heard a single second anything that he sings.. Just to tell you how much pissed off I'm still as regarding all things American!!! :-D

Yeah, and I feel all pissy about that damn it ! ☺

Anijo a dit…

I could have sworn that there previously existed another comment here from you Flocon. But then my consumption of beer by this time of day does have an effect on how rational that I am. :/

Oh, yes, I remember. Wasn't it something about Americans having to do with an article in the LAtimes to be found next to the article by Barbara Erlichman?

Flocon a dit…

What a sharp customer you are Anijo!!!

Yes there was one link and I deleted it thinking it was of no interest and possibly offending.

But since I've been spotted... Here it is again.

"my consumption of beer by this time of day"

For what I understand of time zones it was about 01:30 pm in N.M when you sent this comment.

How do you feel by, say... 08 pm or even 10 pm??? ;-)

Anijo a dit…

Yes there was one link and I deleted it thinking it was of no interest and possibly offending.

It was just the opinion of some person. It was not offensive. It was amusing/diverting (i forget the adjective that you used).

How do you feel by, say... 08 pm or even 10 pm??? ;-)

By 10 pm*, I'm completely sober again.** ☺ I keep an unusual schedule... ☺ ☺

*How thoughtful of you to say "10 pm" instead of "22:00"

** Perhaps by 22:00 I have drunk deep from the Pierian Spring, or at least that's what I tell myself. ;)
