Yes Day !

Have you ever spend a day doing the “Yes Man !”  I think I did it for half of the day, and it was … fun!

Yes Man” (2008)  is a movie with Jim Carrey where he plays a credit analyst. He decided to change his life by following a personal development program based on a very simple idea: “say yes to everything “.

So imagine a credit analyst say “Yes” to anyone asking for a loan … before, he just accorded about 15 loan applications, for one year he accorded more than 300 loan applications…

So, last saturday, I was with some friends. They had plan to go swimming … I wanted to go but many others “reasons” make me say no …

First, I’m little bit shy …being half naked in front of people … no!

Second, I was sick the day before, I had a fever and I ate a lot of medecine in order to feel better , but I wasn’t totally recovered

And last, I had no towel, no lamba ho any, no soap (for shower after) and above all no suitbath !

Guess what ? This happened  “let’s buy you some new suitbath! its ok for the towel, you’re gonna be in the water most of the time and you will shower home!” … and I said …YES, let’s do that ! And we bought a new suitbath, I really needed one by the way. I didn’t care about the towel because it was true, I was in the water most of the time. And finally I could get over my body complex ! you want to see me half naked?  …

Naaaaannn, I won’t put a picture !!! lol lol  – you have to convince me to go swimming for that !

I just want to say, by saying Yes, you can be positively surprise, it is an opportunity for you to live something different … So, let’s all say YES ! at least for half of a day …. 🙂

Never drink too much Red Bull …

Carl AllenYou ever had a Red Bull? Ive never had a Red Bull before, but I had a Red Bull last night – I really like Red Bull.

I wanna plaaaaay !!

Allison: The world’s a playground. You know that when you are a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it. 

This is a way to declare your flame …

Carl Allen: What I have to share is huge… and I want to share it with you.

Con men

Lately, I watched  “I love you Phillip Morris”.

I Love you Phillip Morris

People already told me  how fun and tricky it was, I couldn’t wait to see it by myself. My first knowledge about it was that Jim Carrey played a gay … I finally got to watch it … and it was surprisingly awesome!!!

The movie begins with, Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) laying on an hospital bed, and the first line is :

Steven Russell: Love sure is a funny thing. Makes you happy, makes you sad, makes you do all sorts of things you never thought you’d do before. In fact, love’s the reason I’m laying here dying.” 

It says a lot! Althouth, it is not just a romantic comedy, the movie is geniously bluffy, as well as the real story that it has been inspired on : Steven Russell and Phillip Morris exist for real. Their story as incredible as it is, exists as well .

Steven Jay Russell is now in jail (not for so long I guess … lol !).

Steven Jay Russell, Phillip Morris

Steven Jay Russell, Phillip Morris

Besides being gay, he has an IQ of 163 as well …  FYI ,

I.Q.


Jim Carrey
 (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”, “The Majestic”) delivered one of his best performance, and along with him,  Ewan McGregor (“The Ghost Writer”, “The Island” ), as the cutie and sensitive boyfriend. But, I feel I have to warn you about some scenes, they are not explicitely shocking … but it is necessary to be open-minded. His maximum sentence date is to July 12, 2140. (Steven Russell: “Fucking Texas.” )

Another great movie had been inspired from life of incredible con man :

The three times Oscar Winner Director : Steven Spielberg‘s movie : “Catch me if you can “ (2002) (nominated for 2 Oscars)

Catch Me If You Can

With Leonardo DiCaprio (“Shutter Island”, “Inception“) and the twice Oscar Winner Tom Hanks (“Toys Story 3″, Charlie Wilson’s War”),  relating the life of the young, … very young Frank Abagnale Jr.

Leonardo DiCaprio - Frank Abagnale Jr.

In the 60’s, Frank Abagnale Jr. meticulously passed forged checks across 26 countries over the course of five years, beginning when he was only 16 years old. His story ended better than Steven Russell’s … instead of having a life sentence in jail, he worked for the U.S. Federal Government as consultant and lecturer, and he built his own company “Abagnale & Associates”, a financial fraud consultancy company.

There is a saying : “Necessity is mother of invention” . Steven Russell, in jail, needed to join his boyfriend, and Frank Abagnale … well, it was to reunite his family at first …  Funny how incredibly genius those men are, it is sad they are more known for their bad actions …
