all your food is frozen and needs to be defrosted

i was flipping through an old jalouse issue, from june of this year, and i came upon a brief interview with it girl alice dellal. and i thought it was cute, so i decided to post its' translated version here.

a town ? london.
a pub ? camden.
a book ? the wind in the willows by kenneth grahame.
a restaurant ? any lebanese cuisine.
a movie ? top secret by the zucker brothers.
a band ? the rum shebeen or eraserheads.
a brand ? charlotte olympia (her sister's shoes) or house of holland.
your style ? nineties.
a vacation spot ? rio da janeiro.
a boutique ? ebay.
a dream ? being a ballet dancer or a tattoo artist.
your projects ? working on my photography & learning to drive.
where do you see yourself in five years ? behind the wheel !
jalouse is one of the few magazines i feel privileged to read. maybe it's the fact that it's european and hence a bit more hard to come by here in north america, or maybe it's the smart material that is offered to me in the variety of articles it publishes. either way, i savour every last drop of jalouse, with no exceptions.
yes, it's rare i actually purchase it. it's like six bucks and i'm a cheap-ass ! but i scavenge for it amidst tigerbeat & martha stewart weddings in the (not-so) vast array of magazines offered at my local grocers, pharmacies and corner stores.
it's the least i can do for the magazine that makes me think.


ps -i thought of answering the questions that were asked to alice, but then decided against it, instead opting to ask you guys to do so ! i am really interested in finding out what your favourite, hum, everythings are !

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.

The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.


K guys thanks. Hope to hear your feedback alright? Bye :D
