kiss and tell friday


(Is this a croissant?... Is this a pretzel?... Who cares.... So good!....)

If you could be a fly on the wall anywhere, and at any time in history, where and when would you chose? So many choices. I think I´ll go with Kennedy compound, dining room wall, 1960, any summer day, dinner time, with all the Kennedys...

Have a great weekend!

¡Dos besos muy gordos!

P.S. Tiphaine your link doesn´t work. Can you check it out? Thanks!

Reyes said...

The Kennedy's, you would have lot's to hear! I would go to Marie Antoinette's boudoir, I'm curious to know what she was really like (plus lots of lovely macaroons for a little fly like me!).
Besos y buen finde

I will love to travel to Paris in the 60th, to take coffee with Sastre and Simone de Beauvoir in River Gauche and talk about 68th may movement.

Ocean Girl said...

Uuum yummy, looks really good whatever you call it.

I don't think I want to be a fly but if there is a time and place I would like to be, I would go back to the 80s, just to dance the dirty dancing.

Kwana said...

Oh so many choices I'm all over the place. My mind first went to the days of Cleopatra. I'd love to really hear her first hand with Ceasar or Mark Anthony.

laméditerraine said...

Mmm I think I'd love to be one of those young hippies in the 60s, but my favourite time is when romanticism and modernism were.I would love had been a great musician or an architect in these times.

Kisses and so much love!
I was waiting for the kiss and tell friday xD

Line said...

I would go in the 20 and 30, charleston time, I love les années folles!!

Line said...

the place would be Paris I guess!

Cam said...

I'd go hang out at Berkeley in the 60's...

Imagine one could feel the electricity in the air!

Sorry I missed Corner View...I've been living under a rock. Hope to be back with the program next time around!!

Have a great weekend!!

Tiphaine said...

There is two different times I would have loved to check out : being near Jane austen while she was writing and with the french resistants when they kicked out the nazis out of France !!
My blog : hopefully it will work : www.d-un-bout-du-monde-a-l-autre.com
I'll send you an email otherwise.

Kimmie said...

I'd love to see how the ancient polynesians or other native people lived ..... I think they were really inventive and resourceful

KathyA said...

I'd like to be in the room when Salk discovered the vaccine for polio. Hopefully, no one would swat me!

kristina said...

oooh, how can I choose... I'd love to go to Prince Edward's Island in the early 20th century and see L M Montgomery writing Anne of Green Gables.

liza said...

ooooh, good choices! Kennedys - that would be amazing, as would Cleopatra and Marie Antoinette. The first one that popped into my mind is on Queen Elizabeth's wall the moment she first heard of the death of Princess Diana. Is that really bad of me? It's one of those 'what really happened?' moments...

heidi said...

Oh my, you post good questions. That's a tough one!

I suppose on the wall of the studio where Ray and Charles Eames were designing all of their modern furniture.

I tried to think of some other important historic moment but my mind always goes back to DESIGN.

ticklishfromadistance said...

The day the Berlin wall came down would have been amazing.

caitlin said...

Hmm, good question. I'm not sure what I would choose. Maybe when the Declaration of Independence was being signed. But tomorrow it will be something different.

malo said...

As a fly on the wall I would have observed Truman Capote in his research for "In Cold Blood" What was it that fascinated him so?

juanita de la vega said...

In the 18th century! Oh, those dresses, and those hats!

Sam said...

I'd like to do a (fly's) tour of medieval Britain, and Europe if my wings could cope! Say about 1380. I'd love to see what it was really like.

McGillicutty said...

I would love to have been inside Buckingham Palace at certain points of the Charles and Di saga. They always fascinated me!!!!
Or been around the Yahoo people when they first made it big!!!

Kathy said...

Oh my goodness....with all the exciting in moments in history.....no.....let me think.....I think to be in the studio of a famous artist would be fun....or how about in the studio when the Beatles were recording? I like yours with the Kennedys....can you imagine what you might see or hear!

lobo said...

i want to eat whatever it is!....Oh and Hugh Jackman's bedroom would be nice!!

Kari said...

Hmmm I'm with you on the Kennedy's. Such an interesting family. I just read an article about John F Kennedy Jnr. the other day.
Happy Weekend!

Acacia said...

I'd probably have to go w/ King Henry the 8th w/ anyone of his many wives...So much scandal back then!
xo Kash

Cherry B said...

In the room with Churchill writing a speech, or near Hemingway writing a book... 'Cause if I were a fly, I'd use my multiple eyes to read what was going on and observe how it was put together :)

great week end to you too;
besos

Polly said...

that's funny, my first thought was for the Kennedy's!

but also I wouldn't mind being a fly in salons of Paris at the end of 19c

5 orange potatoes said...

Salem witch trials....would really want to see what actually happened. Problem is, I would be burned on the stake with them (with my red hair; and I've actually been asked if I was a witch)!

la ninja said...

it's a cretzel!

likeschocolate said...

Oops someone took mine. I would also go back to Marie Antoinette and I would like to know two things a) did she sleep with anyone else besides her husband b) did she really say, "Let them eat cake."

MODman said...

1896 - The Savoy Hotel in London watching August Escoffier rock the culinary world. I know, guys only have one thing on their mind... great food!!!

Joyce said...

stopping in to say hi and enjoy your sunday. xoxo

life in yonder said...

Is it bad that I have no clue where I would like to go...? You have made me think...

n a t s u m i said...

I was told by psychic that I used to be a theater actress and play at Opera theater in paris.. I am not sure which century but I would like to go back there to see my play... haha...

Elizabeth said...

I'd be on the wall at Bloomsbury, listening to all that talk and then perhaps landing on Virginia Woolf's pen as she wrote.

janis said...

I think I would like to hear what Barack and Michelle talk about when no one is around - that would be fasinating!

kim said...

i think i would go to key west and have a chat with hemingway and see all his cats! maybe asked how he got those sentences to be so succinct...or maybe just drink a beer...(ok so i checked and someone else said e.h., too, - oh well!)

I knew a girl who was blue. So she painted her world pink. xoxo
