liste du vendredi : list of phone numbers

Ohhh... You're gonna love this!
The other day, I was walking from the ICU to the elevators, passing by the labor ward.
And this is wat I saw on the wall in front of the seats :
Let me translate that for you :

Phone numbers to contact the midwife :
21567
or
93425
night 93429
if no answer :
21547
If you want to reach the labor room, use the telephone on the waiting room, dial 93425 and hold on. The midwife will answer.
Thank you
others phone numbers if we don't answer :
- 21547
- 93426
- 93427

So, ladies, if you're having contractions or if your water broke, I suggest you go to another hospital :)

liste du vendredi : track listing

When we go on a road trip, we always bring Eddie Veder's CD :

3. Far Behind
4. Rise
5. Long Nights
6. Tuolumne
7. Hard Sun
8. Society
9. The Wolf
10. End of tha Road

These songs really affect you at a soul level.
It's a true work of art. And it's one of the rare existential experiences you'll ever have. Seriously.
