Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

One of the newer things I've learned about C since moving in together is that he is a closet dumpster diver. I was actually quite surprised by it, because he's so neat and orderly (read: anal) about most things in his life that I have a really hard time imagining him being able to pick something up off the street. But yet practically every night during our travaux, he'd come home with something new.

August really is THE moving month in Paris, and our new neighborhood was no different. All month long we saw various moving trucks come and go, and without a doubt right after, there would be furniture, decorations, etc on the street. Some of the things he's picked up have been great - like an old bookshelf he was able to turn into a custom-made shoe rack for our bedroom. Or the multitude of moving boxes he found, saving us a small fortune by not having to by any. Other things though have gotten a big fat No Thanks from me, and have ended up right back where he found them.

But then there's today, where I come home to this:
Any guesses as to what my manly man is planning on doing with a mini hot pink guitar?? Cuz I sure have no clue...

Umm, have you expressed any "gee, I wish I knew how to play the guitar" feelings lately?

Or with all the renovations done, he thought he'd just add a lick of paint to make a pink guitar a little more manly??!

Awww it's his manly man way of saying he wants a little girl!

You might need to have an intervention about the dumpster diving. You don't want your next meal to come from there!

YES. I LOVE dumpster diving! I just recently came home w/ about 12 unopened (of course) boxes of various types of pasta! That's like $25 worth of pasta for FREE. (It was at a take it or leave it type of place, not the dumpster.)

Whenever college students move is my favorite. Their mommies and daddies foot the bill for tons of brand new stuff which almost always finds its way to the dumpster the following May. I have made a small fortune salvaging clothes and books and selling them to second hand shops. <3

Of course, there is a ton of stuff that I still have for no reason that I picked up and can't part with.

Let's not rag on manyly men having girly looking guitars. I happen to own a very nice Fender Stratocaster guitar with Hello Kitty on it.
