The solo of the nightingale, her sweet extravaganza,
might well be launched in tedium, telling of neglect,
just as your garden-robin, chirping so engagingly
upon the spade - here to stake a claim for tenancy --
would peck the naive daylight out of sentimental eyes.
-Amy Hollins

(idiom) Only the French would have such a way to describe beauty. A wonderful slang expression, it literally means “pretty and ugly” but describes the type of feminine beauty that is human, and not manufactured by plastic surgeons. It’s a kind of fascinating quirkiness implying charisma, a face you want to keep looking at, even if  you can’t decide whether it is beautiful or not.  (via mirroir)

I got tagged by eas-ily-amused to do this challenge:

"You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod/iTunes/iPhone/media player and write down the first 10 songs. Then pass this on to 10 people."

So here goes:

1. Gentlemen, I Pray You Tell Me from The Mikado
2. La Vie en Rose by Edith Piaf
3. Before the Parade Passes By from Hello, Dolly!
4. Miss Templeton’s 7000th Dream by Jukebox the Ghost
5. The Cell Block Tango from Chicago
6. Fix You by Coldplay
7. Gee by Girls’ Generation
8. If I Never Knew You from Pocahontas
9. I Feel Pretty from West Side Story
10. Hungry Heart by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band

Now I’ve got to tag 10 more, so here are the lucky winners, picked (mostly) at random from my followers:
