dull dull dull

{Le Petit Village in hibernation}

I don't know what the deal is around here but there is nothing to report at all (except of course the disappearance of two plastic ducks and all my family china being broken... and you'll be happy to know that Operation Superglue is coming along nicely).

Maybe it's because January is a dull month and Le Petit Village seems to be hibernating. (Apologies Capricorns.... or should I say Sagittarians, since according to the new Zodiac, Sagittarius now stretches through January, meaning that Aquarian me, is really a Capricorn. To which I say hogwash! That's poppycock plain and simple. I'm the Uranus ruled bearer of water, not a goat. My mother is a goat. I'm not. I'm an Aquarius, and I intend on staying this way). So January is dull around here, minus the Zodiac panic attacks of a girl covered in superglue and mourning missing plastic ducks.

Now that I have your attention, please don't forget to enter the Honey Jr candle collection giveaway here. And apologies that I am not actually giving away Honey Jr himself. I'll see what I can do for next time (but I'm thinking instead of a giveaway it could be an auction. Judging by your comments, this could be quite the entrepreneurial opportunity for me).

And does anyone have any thoughts about the new Starbucks Trenta? That's a whole lotta Frappuccino.

Hold the whip please.

bisou

  3. ha ha ha! I know what you mean - thankfully a few visits to the sales broke me out of my "dull-dom", but our bank account is not too happy at the moment !!
    I read that "historically", last Monday was supposed to be the most depressing day of the year -so we're not alone my friend!! Dull-ness all around :)

  9. Yeah, I've been having stabs of guilt about not posting to my blog for over a week, but...what's happening out there that anyone would want to know?

    I may just post a link to this!

  10. ohhellocupcake - aw shucks! thanks xo

    Brenna - yes, the south does have it's charms, even when dull and sleepy!

    tuula - I think I NEED a trip to the soldes as well... x

    Krystal - it is crazy! I wonder how many pee-pee breaks I would need just to get through one

    Aidan - back at ya! x

    James - that's a brilliant idea! And you'll be happy to know, no ransom notes from the NGZ have been received yet!

    Clouds - right on!

    Rachel - that's a fantastic idea, but I don't think any of the villagers would appreciate it!

    Ed - link away! Boring is as boring does (that's Forrest Gump speak... because I'm bored)

  11. Hmmm...how could we shake things up...

    Sex in a public place?
    A trip to Baden-Baden to visit the naked spas?
    A streaking party with Honey Jr., The Spaniard, Brother-in-Law, The Cousin and the Gypsy?

    or on the less nude side of things...

    Throw a blogging party for all of your expat blogger friends, complete with Raclette (this, of course, would need to wait until summer when I get to London...)
    Auction off Honey Jr. on ebay, just to see what happens
    Get drunk by yourself and then blog about it...at 6 am.

  13. January in Europe always seem to be a dull dull time. I think its the combo of the clouds and cold weather. I am hoping for an early spring to bring some life around here in Germany too :) Stumbled over from thefrogblog and glad I did. Now I need to have an even better look around your cute site!

  14. January IS a dull month - definitely my least favorite. It's just so blah, isn't it? And nothing exciting happens! Ugh.

    Oh, and if it helps, I heard/read that the changing of the zodiac signs only applies to those born after 2009, so I think we're all in the clear (or whatever). Not that I believe in astrology or anything, but I was a little confused by suddenly being labeled an Aquarius AND a Capricorn (my birthday falls on the end/beginning date...weird). Aquarius for life! Hahaha. :)

  15. Sometimes I wish I could spend a few dull days at home. Trade for a while? ;)

  16. Well, all I have to say is if you were indeed giving Honey Jr. away it would make MY January more interesting. And probably yours too since you would be in charge of the giveaway.

    I can't even begin to imagine how many entries you'd get. Wow.

    Oh and the new astrological signs were released by one organization. I read that there are several that dispute the new signs saying the signs are fixed to seasons not to star positions. Funny thing is I'm so like a Scorpio with serious Libra tendancies. Weird.

  17. Your dull petit village looks pretty much like my heaven! But I completely understand -- I have a bad case of cabin fever right now. I'm glad that you're successfully salvaging some of your china! :)

  18. I am not opposed to the trenta, I like to get iced tea in the afternoon so that is what I could get..otherwise it just seems like way to many calories for all the other options

  19. January is no fun anywhere. :(

    What did happen to those ducks?

    Too bad about Honey Jr. I'm seriously sad right now. Are you very sure he doesn't want to be auctioned off? I think that you might really make a lot of money on that one. ;)

  20. It's January, Sara, and therefore only slightly less dull than February. You are not alone. It's hard to stay alive this time of year (in this hemisphere anyway), much less be interested or interesting. That's why we are here for each other.

  21. I hope things get a bit more exciting for you soon!! But only good exciting :) Not broken china exciting, that was awful! I'm glad the superglue is working.

  22. January really is a slow month. We're all tired (and in my case, chubby) from the holidays, it's cold, and all we want now is summer. Someone should probably invent something super amazing for January so that there's something to look forward to. Not me though, I'm too tired and chubby right now.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yup, January seems to go on forever, doesn't it? Luckily, in Japan, we have New year parties all through January to get us through to the hell that is valentine's day. Oh joy.

  24. January is the month of hibernation. Despite the fact I'm a goat (and no, stubborn goats will not abide by this new Sagitarius label being thrown at us), I used to want to sleep through Jan-April. Wake me up in May. And...WHAT? A TRENTA? Yes, that's what America needs, 30 ounzes of frappuccino down their necks and right to their a$$es. I thought the Venti was disgusting enough. Sarahf - I'm with you - I saw the V-day crap at the grocery store today - not sure if I wanted to throw up more looking at that or the thought of a Trenta...

  25. We're hibernating here too, don't worry ;) January is probably my least favorite month...in December, it's cold, but you have the holidays to look forward to...in January, you look forward to February, which is one month closer to spring! haha. Stay cozy, pretty lady! xoxo {av}

  26. Exactly. What Sarah B said. Oh, and you can hold the whip! (Although I'm pretty sure you didn't mean that...) I've got my mind in the gutter. And the gutter in my mind.

  27. I'd like to retract my last comment: I actually discovered Philadelphia cream cheese in my supermarket, so now we can really do the bagels and smoked salmon thing. So something *did* happen this month1

  28. January is just kind of a blah month for most i feel!

    I looooove le petit village in hibernation - makes for a beautiful picture (:

  29. Your photo looks gorj. Just checked out the starbucks thing. wow, that is huge. x

    ReplyDelete
  30. The new size at Starbucks is kinda crazy. It's only a good idea if there's water in it, and nothing else ; )

  31. Seems that whole southern france is hibernating,but now the sunshine is back and we can soak in the sunrays again! gosh i miss the spring and summer already. I visited first time ever in Starbucks in Paris, it was disapointing as we did take hot chocolate, obiously need to drink coffee in Starbucks to get good stuff! But they didn't have any amazing coffees like i have heard ( hello, pumpkin spice coffee, where art thou?)

  32. I was just thinking how dull January always is. The excitement of Cmas and NY is over and now those long dark days of winter are with us.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Dull, dull, dull is right, right, right. We are buried in snow and cold and all I want to do is get into my gardens. Your photos are beautiful and I am grateful that you let me live vicariously through you!

  34. I think you need a bike. Seeing where you live, you REALLY need a bike!
