Golden Head

So economic financial crisis and the proposed $700billion bail-out plan aside,
what other reason do you folks have for not coming to visit me in Lyon, France?
Vous ne parlez pas francais??

Well its alright cause I am here doing the touristy thing in Lyon for ya'll!!
First stop...Golden Head Park!!! (hu hu hu) Ok technically Park of the Head of Gold, but golden head just sounds like more fun! It's called "Parc de la Tete-d'or" ...Tete means 'head' and Or means 'gold'' means 'of' and la means 'the' there ya go!

Well, I went here a few weeks back when it was still hot but I figured you wanted to read about my drunken adventures first....

So Golden Head we come!!

*Just a side note, the park is named Golden Head Park because apparently the designer buried the golden head of Jesus H. Christ somewhere on the grounds...I'm coming here for Easter!!Why search for Easter eggs when you can search for the golden head of J.C. !!!

The grand main gate, but there are 7 other entrances to be exact.
Where is the golden head....
I don't know what this was supposed to symbolize other than sometimes one needs help moving one's ball.
The following are a series of artistic pictures that I call "Reflections on a Tree"

Pretty Lake
You can rent boats and go explore the lake...
Course we did!!!
Row Row Row your boat.....
The Rose Garden

And they have a free Zoo!!
The Lions of Lyon!!!!
The Elphalents!!!!! Thats how my lil sis used to call them when she was little!

I hope the Golden Head is not buried in there!!
And the giraffes!!!

And some kind of longhorn looking thing...I heard Mexico was missing their national animal!
Sorry this was super short....but I currently suffering from severe sinus problems!
But I want to keep my readers happy and informed!!
ByTheWay....Ya'll better stay tuned for the Presidential Debates with and I quote "Candy McCain and Obama Rama(who went to my college, Occidental College, for 2 years!! Whoot Whoot!!)
This is Veronique, the American formerly know as Ceci...signing out!

Cirque du Lyonnais

Coming to you from the other side of the plastic wine cup......
I present to you...
Cirque du Lyonnais

In circle number one we have the wonderfully enchanting, highly skilled, expert swordsman,
the very vixen & vivacious...Veronique the Victor!!!!

In circle number 2 we have the incredibly feisty, tempestuously tempting, master of the corkscrew, the painfully pretty putatita from sPain.....Paula the Punisher!

In circle number 3 we have the ever so villainous, dangerous to the touch, daredevil of the dagger, the sexy, steamy, stallion.....Stephane the Severe!

The vixen Veronique goes in for her first victim!! Poor Stephane is helpless against her sensous ways!!

In one swift move she attacks with the kiss of immobility!!! And Stephane is out for the count!

Now she moves on to Paula the Punisher. Veronique tried but Paula is impervious to her kiss of immobility. Now it's a fight of skill! On guard!!!

The battle is neck to neck....who will be victorious?!?

Paula lays a quick slash to Veronique's neck....

But Veronique is no stranger to the master workings of the sword!! She gains control and makes Paula her BIOTCH!!!

Mmmmm....Victory tastes good!!!

Who won.....I did!!! (I made Stephane do this)

This pictures are soley the outcome of drinking a bit more than is considered 'moderate' and the pictures were not taken before the story was, no. Thats just what happens when good alcohol happens to bad people? Or is it when bad alcohol happen to good people?

Anyways here are some more of the events that transpired...after more alcohol.

I found this strange looking object on the counter at the party.....I didnt know what it was and neither did anyone else...don't believe me...look at the pics...

Then I found a pack of these little white filter things that people use when they roll their own cigarettes. Dont ask....just laugh.

*Still don't know what this thing is...

*The fun is contagious

**Alcohol Disclaimer......too much of it is bad!
