Seven Psychopaths trivia: The original script revolved heavily on the shih-tzu getting shot in the final stand-off of the film. The film boards insisted that they shouldn’t show animal cruelty and the script was changed around it. Billy also refers to this in the grave yard scene when he says “His rabbit gets away, because you can’t let the animals die in a movie. Just the women”

This flowchart tells you when you should use tu or vous in French. It’s funny and it’s right!
The chart’s got most situations covered, but sometimes it’s awkward for French people too: is this uncle I haven’t seen in years still a tu? Does this teenager count as an adult? 
Personally, I’m reserved and I say vous a lot. I don’t like it when older people insist to be called tu when I’m not ready. I get on with my boyfriend’s parents, but it would be so embarrassing to tu them while I’m still a young thing!! His dad speaks native French and I’m dreading the day we speak French for long enough that it comes up. 
Please note the chart only applies to French spoken in France. Belgian people, for example, ont le tutoiement facile (they say tu a lot).

I would add people your age in a professional context maybe, like in a restaurant or bar or even where i work (in tourism). I really dislike when I go to a restaurant and the person serving us thinks because we’re the same age he can say tu to me. Call me a snob if you like, mais on a pas élevé les cochons ensemble. When I’m at work I say vous to everyone except children but just because they don’t react when you say vous to them (i say vous, then tu when they don’t react) so you have to say tu so they know you’re talking to them. I say vous to teenagers otherwise.

Hello from Hobart

20140720-204803-74883186.jpg
Last night I drank a cocktail from a salsa glass. Hobart tries to be hipster, but can’t quite get it right.

Have you ever been to Hobart airport on a Sunday night? A half-empty terminal, with only two flights left to depart, the bar is closed and the only available foods are overpriced chocolate bars or gift boxes of macadamia nuts from “Tasmania & Beyond”.

I’m writing this blog post on my…

I don’t quite know what I am yet. I’ve tried flipping coins, listening exclusively to french crooners, I’ve even had a brief hat phase but nothing stuck.
