" Once upon a time, in an old, old walled city up North, in the year that is believed to be 2 - double-aught - 8, wandered a proud and lonely samuraï. Straight as a chopstick she stood and briskly she walked battered paths, wasting not one second, making not one useless move, swift as the wind was her mind, strong as a river coursed the blood through her veins; a Hattori Hanzo sword invisibly stabbed through her heart, that she could pull out at will to accomplish great deeds of good or of bad. Ink and paper were her only friends, rice, tea and words her only fodder. She lived with her son, a Norwegian Forest cat named Aimé, who would defend her with his life, and likewise."

Oops... I think someone just pissed me off....

I'm a member of Samurai Of Legend as of Oct 27 2008


Iza Straightshooter : Mad as a hatter but still the sanest of us all.

Je ne suis pas la mode, c'est elle qui me suit...

I'm an individualist who likes individuals. Je vois la vie au cas par cas, pas en bloc.
I believe in the DIYW lifestyle. [Do It Your Way]

"One day, I found a big book buried deep into the ground. [NO, IT WAS NOT A *DEATH NOTE*!!!] I opened it, but all the pages were blank. Then to my surprise, it started writing itself..." [-from the opening of Björk's music video, "Bachelorette"]

I'm a writer. I write novels.

I'm an eccentric, marginal, madhatter, visionary, idealist, impulsive, colourful, crazy & sometimes solitary-inclined person. I am a street faerie, a city angel, a drama queen, a hitman, a mafia boss, a millionaire and a tramp all in one package. I follow none lead or law but thus of my intuition & conscience. I make my own rules. Take it or leave it.

I LOVE but I havent got my PO BOX anymore, so if you want to snail-mail, email me to ask for my postal address. I cant just post it here for any maniak to come attack me & my cat while we sleep . . .

Many years ago, I met a Tiger on a rainy Monday night. An Old Tiger.
I Loved this Tiger and he Loved me. But a Tiger, though he loves you, though he only wants to play, will kill you when he claws.
I had to fly away ... ... if only for a while. [He's the Bill to my Beatrix. And NO, Bill does NOT die at the end... you'll see. One day, there's gonna be the Kill Bill 3 and everyone is gonna have to reckon' I was fuckin' right. Love of my Life, we will be together. Soon. Mon Amour Ma Vie.

This is my friend Marcel. He's 73 and my life-long neighbour. Accordion player, he loves eating, hot-dogs, music, the radio, horses, cats, boats, kites, fireworks, summer fairs, ice cream, baloney, talking to people & having fun.

This is my home:
On the South shore ; Lévis :

& on the North shore ; Vieux-Québec centre-ville :

This is my cat ♥ Aimé!! ♥

My little tiger, my pride & joy. Mon trésor ♥

Huge respect & love to my cat ♥ Malenikiy ♥ who passed away in 2004. Je ne t'oublie pas
Je t'aime Bébé ♥

Pretty much all the weird stuff I do or like can be found below in "interests". Otherwise, see my LJ & expect ANYTHING.

I add people whose journal I feel like reading. Dont take it personal if I dont add you back. I have weird tastes. I'm also a savage adder, i.e. I'll add people without saying anything & read a while until I have a relevant comment to say. I like noticing an unknown person has added me & checking out who this is.
I read every post on my list. I comment when I have stuff to say. I can be a long time without posting or commenting sometimes, or post 10 times in a day. I'm like a red rose.... there is the romance, mystery & irresistible attraction.... the petals are creamy soft.... but beware of the thorns!!!
