De la part de Canaille

Salut ! Je m’appelle Canaille. Et je suis une vraie canaille. J’aime bien casser les vases et grimper sur les rideaux. Je fais pipi sur le lit tout le temps, mais malheureusement, ma mère ferme la porte de la chambre pour que je ne puisse plus entrer. J’adore gémir quand je sens la bouffe, quand je vois quelqu’un qui ne me porte pas attention, quand je m’ennuie… en fait, je gémis sans cesse. Je tente de sauter sur la table pendant les repas, mais je n’y arrive pas (pas encore !)

Je préfère dormir sur les genoux (ou sur les mains) de ma mère ou de mon père quand ils essaient de travailler sur leurs ordis. Je gratte à la porte chaque soir parce que je n’aime pas être tout seul dans le salon. Je me jette sur n’importe quoi… les pieds sous la couette, les petits bouts de papier par terre, les mouches qui sont à l’autre côté de la fenêtre, même les choses que je ne vois pas !

Hier, après avoir cassé un vase, j’ai mordu le fil du casque dont ma mère se sert pour enregistrer les mp3s en français pour son site. Le site sur lequel elle compte pour payer le loyer parce qu’elle n’a pas encore le droit de travailler dans ce pays. Le site sans lequel elle serait fauchée. Mais je m’en fous parce que je suis Canaille !

Mais je suis trop mignon, donc tout est pardonné ! N’est-ce pas ?

    Funny how our pets can do anything they want, good or bad, and we can never get very mad… at this moment, my dog is trying to get me to play with all her might. I throw a toy, type a word, she comes back without said toy (I though we were playing fetch, but I was obviously wrong), she bites my toes, and the game begins again. There are about 10 toys strewn out across the apartment. Guess I’d better go play, huh?

    hi! i’ve actually been reading your blog for a while, but was too shy to comment, but i just had to with this one because canaille is just like my cat! adorable/devilish while sitting right on top of the newspaper to “help” you read. i wish i could bring mine to france, but would he understand french cat’s miaulements? that’s an interesting lingusitic problem . . .

    Il est trop adorable, Canaille ! Il fait des bêtises, c’est clair, mais tous les chats sont comme ça, n’est-ce pas ? Ou surtout les chatons…(By the way, I’ve included you in a “what are you wearing?” meme… Stop by to see!)

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
