So, I figured since we got to bombard the French kids with questions, I might post them so my two favorite French speaking people can see. Sorry, I didn't really get to ask a lot of questions (maybe you can tell which ones are mine >>). Oh, and I can't remember the girl's name...it started with G...something like Geraldine or Gertrude...but those weren't it. Oh well I'll find out tomorrow XD The guy is Vincent. Vincent didn't talk a lot but if his answers differed then I put a G and a V for each :D

They seemed to like being asked questions too, so I don't feel bad about us totally digging at them XD

Q: What kinds of music do you like?
A: Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc.

Q: Where do you live?
A: Close to Vincent, who lives in Saint Germaine. I can see the Eiffel Tower from my window; I've noticed in a lot of films they make the tower out to be really huge and tall, like the biggest thing in Paris...but it's not big at all, like...ten stairs and ten ladder rungs (obviously this was an exaggeration to its smallness, cause we all laughed XD).

Q: Is it true that the driving age in France is eighteen?
A: Yes. But it doesn’t matter, because most of the time we walk anyways. Everything is close by, so you can walk there…we also take the train a lot or the bus, or our bikes.

Q: What about cars?
A: Well, the cars in France are really tiny, because we have really tiny streets.

Q: Are Americans fat?
A: In some places more than others. It’s really funny how the Americans and the French have these stereotypes of each other…Americans are fat, the French are bitches (exact words haha)…and most of it is true.

Q: What is the food in France like?
A: It’s good. A lot different from American food.

Q: What’s your favorite American food (I really expected them to say McDonalds. I don’t know why)?
A: Reese’s peanut butter cups. (Here is a lot of confusion because Vincent didn’t know what they were—it was neat though because we got to hear it explained in French. After confirming that he is not allergic to peanuts, Kaytie resolved to buy us all some…score!)

Q: How long have you been taking English?
G: Since fourth grade. That’s usually when we are introduced to English. But even with this, French people can’t really speak English that well at all. Most of us sound like (adopts French accent) “I em Franche. I em from Fronce.” (That’s what it sounded like).
V: For four years. I’m fifteen. (<--Has the accent XD)

Q: Do you speak any other languages?
G: I’m learning German but I can’t speak it well at all.
V: I’m taking Spanish.

Q: What’s the school system like in France? Are the Grades the same for ages?
A: The grades are the same, like, 9th 10th and 11th. But we have four years of Junior High and three of High School. We have to take a test to get into High School but…it’s no big deal, everyone passes. School starts at eight and ends at five. And, our holidays are different from American ones. We have them four times a year, February, May, August, and November (I think this is right, I only know February for sure o.o ).

Q: What types of clothes are worn in France?
A: Well, there’s a lot of the French brands, (names off a lot of brands I can’t remember) but there are American ones as well. I like the ones like Polo, and Abercrombie and Fitch.

Q: Are there thrift stores in France?
A: Yes, but only a few compared to America (HAHAHA).

Q: What do you want to do as an adult or in college?
G: I’m interested in Stock. I think it would be funny to go to the New York Stock Exchange and go “Hello! I’m French!”
V: I like economics and business as well.

Hehe if you guys want me to ask them anything else I totally will ^^ they like telling us stuff about France, I hope they appreciate our interest :3


Mkay here is part of a letter I wrote to Jen X3:

Drama camp is super fun :) Cipriano's there, so is Taylor...Zack Schubert's not coming till next week...and Isaiah's not doing it! *airfist!* And there's a kid from France who's in it (sawheeeeet)...and then a lot of my old friends. It's like we never left XD...and we're doing "Annie Get Your Gun" which is that show with the song "I've got rhythm...I've got music"...I had no idea. There's this one girl who's super cute and fun and really high energy who's already reviewed the script and Annie's character and all the songs and saw the play *breatthhhh*....zomg I'm not sure whether I like her...she's really serious but it's like "YAY OMG YAYYYYY"

...and I stabbed myself with a pencil!! Ouch ouch blooodddd >.< Wow, we're off to a great start!


>>> So that's it. Lol Cipriano's a pretty hilarious dude that both of us have happened to take classes with, he's pretty nice ^^(I thought he was a year older but it turns out he's a junior next year..o.o)...

Isaiah's that kid who I really liked but would never call me, and he said to me that if Rachel (a co-director who this year is official director) was going to direct, he wasn't going to do it anymore. LOL.

That kid from France is pretty cool. His name is Vincent (wtf, why are all the foreign kid's names vincent??), and he's from Saint Germaine. It was cool hearing him say it :3 I wonder if he's heard of Manu or Christophe or Le Roi Soleil? o.o I might ask him heehee...

Damn, I really stabbed myself with a pencil >.< I was leaning forward sitting on stage and my knee shoved a really sharp pencil directly into the place right below my palm...damn, no bandaids...any lower and I would have bled A LOT. Lol "i'm dyinggggg" hows THAT for drama? :D

Haha it turns out that "Annie Get Your Gun" music is right in my range, and I can sing the notes really loud and everything, it's awesome. I only have to work on my breathing :D ...much harder than one would think -_-

I'm readeh fo' tomorrah!

....that really excited drama girl has taken four years of french, too....damn her -_-


Isn't it wonderful?! It doesn't hurt my eyes anymore and it's lemony <3

I dunno where all my friends went.

And I'm afraid to ask...

Livejournal is being one slow fucker today.



omg yes this = love :3 or, really, this = buttsecks XDDDD
