About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find the Holy Grail, I'm sure it would look great on my Mum's chimney

ABOUT ME

4 things or beings make me happy:

books
cats
cheese
women

4 things or beings make me unhappy;

mediocrity
raisins in salads
religion
borders

Outside of that, I'm cool with anything.

I get bored very fast, so I keep my backpack with me pretty much all the time. Also, it looks cool.

Little update : I wrote the text above three years ago and now I realize how cocky it sounds. Anyway, I'm still an arrogant fuck, but now I have a proper job and I stopped judging (most of) people.
Oh, and I published a book (http://daphnisetchloe.fr/catalogue/de-a-a-l/le-cortege-des-epileptiques/). It's about pancakes and unicorns.

PHILOSOPHY

"I make for my goal, I follow my course; over the loitering and tardy will I leap. Thus let my on-going be their down-going!"
Nietzsche, "Thus spoke Zarathustra" (Mwaaahhhhaaaahhhhhaaaa, sardonic laugh)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surfed hundreds of couches on 4 continents. I even sometimes surf my own couch just to know how it feels./>

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In Colombia, I slept on a big orange stinky couch and I loved that, so if you have a big orange stinky couch, please contact me.
Also, during my trips, I slept on all kinds of crazy mattresses, beds, futons, floors or hammocks. Thanks a lot to all my hosts, I will never forget you guys.

Interests

Reading, writing, singing, road triping, and most of all making my life a little more exciting (or maybe less boring) everyday.

Little update : that definitely sounds cheesy but I will leave it here as a reminder of how cheesy I can be.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Somebody suddenly dying in front of me; me burning my own hair ; a guy with a beard repeating he's going to RRRRRRRRichmond; three ghosts; four goats; one sexual overdose; so many people picking me up even though I had a three-week beard and a three-week smell; 4557 and a half parisian nights; a thousand young Germans pewking at the same time on a hill; so many fucked up relationships; two riots in Paris; two scars sculpted by the cops; 5 nights in a jail; my Mum saying maybe she's proud of me; the end of my novel. I'm not finished, just lazy.

Little update : cheesy... and awkward.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to eat a Flamby in 2 seconds, fart with your ears, perfectly throw a Coca Cola bottle on a battalion of cops, make people believe you are the new messiah, get kicked out of three night clubs in one night, save people from suicide.
