Supermarket CD Giveaway

First it’s a box of chocolates from La Maison du Chocolat (twice), and now this!

I was skimming through our local grocery store, and what did I chance upon but a 6€ cd of Jacques Brel! And since we already have a cd of Jacques Brel, I thought of you! Oh yes I did.

Now you know you want it. Given the picture of the 78 on the cover (that’s a record to be used on a record player for all you young twerps), I cannot be sure that it won’t be accompanied by some fuzzy sounds just as if it were the real thing (a real record, that is). But that only adds to its charm!

I mean, it’s French, after all.

But seriously, click here to listen to his melodic voice and gaze upon his seductive face if you want to swoon. And then just leave me a comment if you want a chance at winning.

(And please don’t leave me hanging; I’ll be really embarrassed if no one wants my supermarket cd.  And it’s better than a toilet paper giveaway, which I also spotted at the grocery store).  

And I forgot to mention when I originally posted this that I’ll pull the name of the winner this Saturday morning.  Goodness!  That’s only two days away and there are already so many hopefuls!

On another note, guess who started school today?

I have some freeeeedom on the horizon – freedom from 8:30 to 4:30 every day except Wednesday while they all attend school. Well, Petit Prince is only going half days for now until he stops peeing his pants. But freedom … eventually.

So that I can be refreshed and patient and ready to give my whole heart in the time we spend together after school.

Of course.


I love to hear from you, friends. You can comment using the box below or your Facebook profile. But FB doesn't notify me of new comments, so if the post is more than a week old and you want to make sure I see your comment, it's better to use the comment box. Merci!

I am the daughter of a symphony musician who was raised in upstate New York, and I simply breathe all things classical, be it music or 19th century literature (English and Russian). I married Sir Renaissance in New York City, and before I knew it, he had swept me up and brought me back home to his own country. So here we are. Three children, a rather ordinary life in a rather exceptional place. I am now ‘A Lady in France.’

  3. This would definitely add some culture in my home. Because right now, there is none. =)

  4. Tracie says:

    I need more French music in my house.

    (and by more, I mean some, because right now there is none.)

    Does Jacques come with a record player? ‘Cause if he does I’m all over it. Swooning, man. He’s a total crooner-babe. (-:

    In honor of your father then!

  7. Stacia says:

    He looks like a French Ricky Nelson, n’est-ce pas?? Also, enjoy your freedom! Love those adorable baby faces!

  8. Oh the joy on the faces of your children…
    I can imagine it’s matched only by the joy on your own face.

    Hugs and smiles to you.

    You’ll find you still have no freedom; the time fills itself like a hole you try to dig in dry sand…

    But there’s nothing like missing your kids. I look forward to that break from them so that I can long to be reunited.

    And mostly I do long for it.
