C O N G R A T S !!!! Did it feel like running a 10K marathon? Awesome ain’t it?

gailcalled's avatar

Since I couldn’t find a French eating song, here’s Gaby Morlay singing this rollicking drinking song; Boire un petit coup, c’est agréable, in 1948.

“Boire un petit coup c’est agréable
Boire un petit coup c’est doux
Mais il ne faut pas rouler dessous la table
Boire un petit coup c’est agréable
Boire un petit coup c’est doux.”

Toutes les paroles

Marvellous job! Welcome to the 10K Mansion.:-)

Kardamom's avatar

You are just in time because the architects just finished the French wing of the mansion complete with a huge library. Lucky for you (and us) this library is not stuffy at all and down at one end, they have a traditional kitchen/dining room just for you to prepare and eat French food. All you have to do is shout, Let’s Eat!.

Your quarters are technically part of the mansion, but they have been added on just for you and are big enough to accomodate your sisters and all of your friends should they decide to come and visit. See if you like this place. Your mom already has her own space in the mansion and I checked with her, to make sure you could have your own place, she said yes. Me and @Luckyguy will be your chaperones, to make sure that everything is on the up and up, to give your mom a break.

They also finished the art gallery and they’ve installed a Vuillard a Monet a Degas a Renoir and a Manet (You’ll recognize me because I look like the bartendress!) but they’ve left and entire section of the gallery for you to display your own artwork!


Dutchess_III's avatar

Wait…does she have a fully stocked fridge with Natty Lite in it?

Wow..that Manet was amazing….I have never heard of him before. I love the 10K mansion! (If it has a fully stocked fridge, of course.)

Blueroses's avatar

@Dutchess_III and no slugs to waste the beer upon!

Dutchess_III's avatar

Damn! You remembered that!!

SavoirFaire's avatar

Wait… if there’s a French wing in the mansion now, does that mean I have to move?

Dutchess_III's avatar

No. There is a Chinese wing too. And ya’ll can visit. And stuff.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Phew! For a second there, I thought I was going to have to clean my room!

gailcalled's avatar

@SavoirFaire: Il y a la bonne à tout faire, and I mean tout.

How’s your French? Listen to L’Hôtel du Numero Trois, verses 8 and 9:

(La bonne, ah ! La pauvre petite bonne,
La bonne à tout faire naturellement
Ah ! La pauvre… Enfin, n’en parlons plus)

La bonne n’est pas une très belle fille,
Mais nous n’songeons pas au minois,
On lui fait l’amour en famille
A l’hôtel du numéro trois.

SavoirFaire's avatar

@gailcalled That’s some good wordplay right there!

augustlan's avatar

You people are giving beer to my 16 year old, just so you know!

Plucky's avatar

Lol… I linked the wrong name (blushes) – I was on Fluther via my phone.


Congratulations to you @mangeons!!! Happy happy 10K day!!!!

blueiiznh's avatar

missed another good party. Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kardamom's avatar

Auggie, not to worry, me and @Luckyguy are chaperoning @mangeons. No beer in her quarters. Just fabulous French food.

Mariah's avatar

Aw man, I’m so so so late! But I want to say CONGRATULATIONS!! to this fabulous jelly.

Best of luck to you in the college hunt as that phase begins…it’s stressful, but exciting!

MissAnthrope's avatar

16-year-olds drink beer in France!

jazmina88's avatar

Yippee Kay Yai Yay!

Buttonstc's avatar

Congrats to you. Great accomplishment.

Dutchess_III's avatar

NO BEER??!!!!

Bellatrix's avatar

Hands @Dutchess_III a glass of fruit punch. It’s quite refreshing.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Fruit punch isn’t French. :(

mangeons's avatar

But fruit punch is delicious!

Bellatrix's avatar

This is un punch planteur. :-)

lillycoyote's avatar

How fricking late am I to this party? My sincerest apologies!

I feel particularly bad @mangeons, because, if I remember correctly, you threw me my 10k party.

So…. congratulations! It’s about time!

Here’s a card for you


The real thing is more fun because it has a hook on top and you can hang it from something, and her legs/feet are made of bead strands that dangle and the one her legs seems to be missing from the card in the picture, but it’s the best I can do here in this virtual world of the internets and Fluther.

Dutchess_III's avatar

WTH are you talking about @lillycoyote?!!

lillycoyote's avatar


I guess it wasn’t entirely clear what I was talking about. The image I posted for @mangeons is one of the “Laini’s Ladies” and they come in a card, with an envelope.

There a bunch of them. Here are a few.

They are all “ladies,” of course, of similar design, and have different quotes on them. And you can remove the ornament part and hang it. I have several that I have kept for myself and some I have sent to other people. Most of them have strings of beads for legs, except for things like the mermaid, as you can see that in the link above.

I liked the quote on the one for @mangeons and that was the best image I could find, where the quote was clear enough to read, even though I don’t really think books have addled @mangeons , she just likes to read. The one in image I posted for her was without the card, just the ornament part, and one of her “bead strand legs” is missing. That’s what I was trying to explain.

If it had been for @WillWorkForChocolate, for example, I maybe would posted the one on the bottom right in the link above, The Chocolate Muse.

The quote on that one is:

”‘But you have no chocolate? My dear, how will you ever manage?!?!’ -Marquise de Sevigne”

And the next time someone says “WTF or WTH are you talking about, @lillycoyote?!!?” I’m not explaining. I’m done explaining. :-)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

Oooooh, I SO need the chocolate one!
