A l'air du temps



Elles me snobent les filles d’Alger, fallait mettre cartes sur table tout de suite, fallait dire “Ouais j’habite à Londres, je suis Banquière, et suis plus belle que toi connasse” et là tu vois le respect, le regard qui change, qui te défigure de haut en bas, qui se dit « ah ouais c’est pour ca que ton Français est bizarre » bien sur trop sure de moi, je continue a sourire avec des yeux moqueurs et des  envies de meurtre que je dissimule avec du sarcasme qui ne sort pas bien hahaha Oui mon français n’est bizarre que pour les oreilles tordues ou moches (le dernier mot je dis dans ma tête) et continue à boire ce café au gout de chaussettes qu’ils servent chez Denbache. Sorry mate.

Je vois des filles arriver sur la Terrace, je murmure à ma copine « wow elles sont belles les Algériennes non? » même si l’une est maquillée comme une voiture volée et l’autre fait le genre de fille qui fait des youyous quand elle jouit, des putes quoi, passant a cote de notre table, l’une d’elles le dis, le mot le plus vulgaire dans la langue algérienne, je l’entends, mes yeux s’écarquillent, je regarde mon amie, elle a peur de lever la tête, je lui demande si j’avais bien entendu, elle confirme avec un sourire qui dit Sorry…

Moi : Mais sorry pourquoi? Tu les as invités ou quoi?
Elle : Non sorry que t’ais eu à voir ca
Moi : Euu mais c’est mon pays aussi merde, je ne suis pas une étrangère que tu espère impressionner, anyway y a des putes ici faut pas rester, déjà que je n’arrive pas à me trouver un mec, je ne veux pas prendre le risque et en plus elles sont super cannons – l’addition svp
Elle : tu parles trop, regarde comme ta phrase est plus longue que la mienne, c’est pour ca que t’es encore célibataire
Moi : Na3dine!!  Je le savais…

Ma copine me dit, la seule différence entre ces filles et le reste, c’est que "le reste" n’utilisent pas le sexe afin d’obtenir quelque chose mis a part le plaisir, si ce n’est pas a leurs gout, elles disparaissent, les putes ben….elles font des Youyous.

On monte dans un taxi, le driver écoute de la musique qui me donne mal au ventre, indigestion en souvenir de cette musique qui passait a la Télé après le Ftour (1) du Ramadan, il conduit comme un Staifi(2), je lui pose la question et me confirme qu’en effet il est de Sétif, ah oui je connais bien Sétif, là, sa tête fait un 180 degrés et commence à se taper la discute, mon dieu je vais mourir a la main d’un Sétifien comme dans mon cauchemar, il me dit qu’il habitait en face de Ain al Fouwara, mais bien sur, tous les Sétifiens habitent en face ou a coté  de la fontaine (Les Algérois aussi habitent tous Hydra ou le Golf), ils vont tous remplir leurs bidons d’eau á la fontaine quand l’eau est coupée ou se masturbent en matant les seins nues de cette statue de femme romaine que personne ne demande ou sait qui elle était.

Quand je lui demande de nous changer la musique, il met 2PAC !!! Ouais il est super en vogue ce mec!!! Le Staifi digne de son nom, nous dépose encore vivantes après une demi heure d’Adrénaline et de Rap fun, quand je descends de sa voiture piégée j’ai le vertige, je déambule vers un autre café, les gens assis a la terrace me voient arriver, me fixent, je tombe, me relève avec un regard qui dit "Je vous emmerde arrêtez de me regarder ya zah" et le mec qui me drague et qui a l’air pas mal, rigole, il rigole ce connard, je me mets a rigoler aussi histoire de ne pas en faire un drame et avoir l’air un peu cool, chose que je suis anyway.

Le mec qui rigolait vient vers moi, il demande s’il peut me parler, wow j’adore comme ils sont directs les mecs chez nous, je souris, fais ma douce, esperant qu'il me demande mon prénom, lui, me demande combien?? ah oauis c'est comme ca maintenant!!

  9. People don't respond well to French posts or I was too controvertial! either way I love this post and I enjoyed writing it and reading it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. controversial how? the language and/or the ending?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'll have to say it's a bit of both Dawood! but mostly the language used! the fact I mentioned sex even...it is ok to practice but taboo to write about!

    ReplyDelete
  12. oh, is itttt? free sex or servicing sex?

    ReplyDelete
  13. hmm rightt. mais quel langage!! :p

    so what did you think of the putes youyou?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Exactly! quel language!
    The fact that I write stuff like: sex, pute, juire...I am looked down on but fellow bloggers (bothered) and will be getting nasty comments!

    But I don't care about being PC!
    lol did you like that? she ulululates when she comes lol

  15. my best of:

    "maquillée comme une voiture volée" nicely conjured simile

    et l’autre fait le genre de fille qui fait des youyous quand elle jouit, des putes quoi, ..." quelle imagerie? give me some background on where that's from lol, i get curious about these things

    "le mot le plus vulgaire dans la langue algérienne,..." c'est quoi?

    "anyway y a des putes ici faut pas rester, ..." rester n'était peut-etre pas une mauvaise idée apres tout lol

    "ils vont tous remplir leurs bidons d’eau á la fontaine quand l’eau est coupée ou se masturbent en matant les seins nues de cette statue de femme romaine" ahahahahahah seriously WTF?

    the text was funny and outrageous but the excessive use of expletives can distract from the main theme, actually i'm not sure what the main theme is about?

    i think they're more effective when used sparingly and tastefully. anyway, just my HO :P

    btw, is it me or was you influenced in some form or another by the 'corporate shit' diatribe?

    most importantly though, why did the guy think you was a .... you know? and what was your reaction?

    ReplyDelete
  16. and yes i did like that because i like verbal wrongness taken to the next level lol

  18. you're now officially DZ-Poulette ! funny and informative.You managed to make comments dry up :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. TDW: The orgasmic youyous are a way of depicting the crudeness; I mean who would do that!

    Le mot le plus vulgaire starts with a Z you'll have to ask your DZ spy to fill you in

    Rester serais une bonne idée pour toi maybe ;)

    This is a very famous roman fountain in the city centre of Setif, and water supply has been known to be scarce back in the days or maybe even now, so people would fill jerry cans from the fountain.

    The main theme is blurry you're right hence the title, but I guess it's about the perception of people, I saw 2 girls described above and thought they were hookers, someone else saw me and thought the same when he asked me combien??

    You're calling my text distasteful?

    No, I was not inspired by your corporate bullshit text but you certainly egg me on...

    @Italian Anonymous: learn English then :)

    @ Malek: thank you :), sometimes it’s nice to be controversial or write something that I like more than other people, i.e. Written for me

  21. DZC have you considered converting the blog content into a book? or a script? if not you should

    ReplyDelete
  22. you usually structure your 'articles' well, intro, main idea, the catch, the application and the summery (conclusion), with smooth transition between parts and a clear aim. This one was a bit of a mess really, don’t quite get what ur trying to tell us, though, it is catchy with the elements of surprise and fun used.

    Delboy

    ReplyDelete
  23. i think i know the word.

    distasteful, don't know, forceful maybe? yes.

    why did you think they were hookers and why did the guy think YOU were one too?
    and, what was your reaction?

    ReplyDelete
  24. haha Tdw , what is this what is that and who was it and what did they say and how did they feel and how do you feel and which one was and what does it mean and where is it and how is it and did it feel good and who is it and who is she and did she like him and did he like her and do they like each other and where did they go and what did they do .... typical "bottle filler" :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. @ Malek: no I haven't no! I will need to write a larger selection I think! And maybe create characters! But thanks :)

    @Delboy: lol is it a mess? Look at it like this: the theme is a l'air du temps, which is like the prevailing atmosphere, the theme is really about the "putes" with a break in the middle with the Staifi driver...just bloody enjoy it for what it is!

    @TDW: Forceful is good.
    Well to start, they WERE actual hookers, my description is concise but effective, and I thought they were because of the way the looked and the language they held.

    I believe I was mistaken for one probably because I was not very covered or maybe because that particular man had a precise idea of what a hooker would look like just like I did, who knows why someone sees someone as a hooker! My reaction: smile turned into a frown looked at my friend, walked past him and went HACCCCHHHHHAAAK

    ReplyDelete
  26. someone needs to fill the bottle so cool people like you can drink from it ;-)

  27. i know exactly what hachaek means :p

  32. Je te lance un défi dz-chick... tu réécris la même chose avec les mêmes termes genre pute, se masturber devant les seins nus... mais en arabe, pas en arabe littéraire, en arabe de chi nous.

    Je te le dis tout de suite, traite de moi de lâche si tu veux mais moi j'en serai incapable, j'y peux rien c'est pas que je les dis pas en arabe ces mots.
    C'est que j'ai été coulé dans le moule où entre copains on se dit tout en arabe mais avec les filles hchouma... on peut parfois se dire exactement la même chose mais seulement traduit en français comme si ça jetait un voile de pudeur dessus ...
    je sais pas pourquoi

    He followed me to the station then asked whether I am okay to meet and promised to look after me!

    He was passive as well! Obviously thought: "Here is a good looking discreet Berrani"

    I said yes, let us meet in 1er May.The day after I was in London.

  56. Double macchiato time:
    ATO said berrani, I knew he was a "kavi" which explains the constant insisting on being "good looking", probably compensating :)(He must've missed my "personal" attacks !) which sets us up for an excellent hot topic: regionalism , DZC what do you think?

  62. DZ-Chick,

    How can you not see the humor of it? like the 1st or 2nd day of Ramadan, when f'lhouma, men fight for no reason,they didn't have their Garro, chema ou k'hioua? I find that hilarious and fascinating!
    I think this is the best place to use the words that we all hear, know, say, that are still tabou, yet beautiful in a certain way, they are anger starters, but it feels good to get them out.
    @ Maleko: Glad you liked it:)

  69. "Re: subjects: if anybody has something I should write about, I take commissions"
    - Got 2!
    a) Why not write about "dsara" that (almost always) ends bad. We like teasing each other, but sometimes we push things too far and hurt people's sensitivity just because we insist to have le dernier mot.
    b) : What makes us so judgmental about people's way of life?

    ReplyDelete
  70. and to add a topic suggestion may be write about Algerians and religion. Differences, changes, correlation with wealth? etc.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Merci Allison, the last suggestion is something I can definitely write about, first hand experience and all that. Ok so the subject after next is set. The next one is a surprise.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yeah, and if you want to alternate (serious/light) topics, you could also write about what makes us proud to be Algerian, what we like in the country/society/people that makes one say/feel/think "malgri tout bladi nebrik"?

    Les idées ne manquent pas comme tu peux le voir, Dz-Chick. Ça aussi, c'est un trait commun : le surplus d'idées, mais le déficit d'action
    (1 autre sujet potentiel?). For this, I must say : kuddos lady!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Thanks Allison, the Algerian Identity post is ready actually I just haven't posted it yet as I need to tweack it a little, serious subjects take longer than the "tourist, f*cking country etc" that I usually wrap up in a bout 20 minutes!

    So bare with me :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. speaking of requests, here is few things that make me wonder:
    Why do algerians find gad elmaleh funny, why do they wear suits when they go on holiday to algeria, why do they stare back at camera on youtube and talk like they are the professor in a lecture, why do they still follow french stuff when they are in countries other than france and master the local language,why do they think rai is a worldwide phenomenon when none of their foreign friends owns a rai cd,why do they call north african food moroccan food in the UK, why do they want to have more tourists, why do they get embarassed by acts of any algerian in the entire planet, why do they insist on bread with any meal even fish and chips, why do they think if they leave their job the company will go bust :) i blame the coffee !

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think this blog is gonna have a bright future...here is one, why do algerians see hijabist different and reject girls just for that reason..ay labsa hijab, madanitach while she has feelings and falls in love asany other girl...(sounds silly but happened so many times)...
    why do they have an attitude and ignore each other once in the plain..why do they have double personality (and trust me some do) when with europeans are cool but when with algerians kala allah wakala rasoul..
    and that is from my personal experience: why when u discussing evoltion theory, they think beli kfart, i guess you could relate to the blind believe in god in the society just because he/she was born to a muslim family, does not mean he is muslim.....

  78. OK guys, we're all enjoying this blog and like our host. She spends a lot of time writing posts and answering comments.

    But remember, when she started this blog, she had a "dilemma" that is still "pending".
    So, let's collectively think how we could help her find her "douce moitié".

    As much as I like this blog, I want her to meet that special guy and enjoy "la vie à deux".

    Here are 2 suggestions :

    Allison: Merci ma cherie, that's very cool of you...maybe there won't be need for the "35 and still single post" which I have already drafted lol

    ReplyDelete
  81. maybe there won't be need for the "35 and still single post"

    - Hope so my dear.
    Maybe then you could adapt the blog and change the title : Dilemmas of an engaged Algerian girl in London, Dilemmas of a married Algerian woman in London, Dilemmas of an Algerian mom in London, etc. :)
    Now, that would be cool!

    ReplyDelete
  82. DZC
    Regardless of whether you are Algeroise Nouzouh or Algeroise vraie, it would be nice if you could treat the subject of "Les Algerois les rois, Algeriens les riens"
    You probably know better than me why a small minority resort to this slogan to find a feeling of slef-worth.

    Merci
    ATO

    ReplyDelete
  83. Good ideas for titles Allison! :) I think I fancy the number 35 though, maybe I will have someone but not engaged...so can save another year of my BELOVED blog.

    @ATO: I am an Algerian from all over Algeria with roots from the capital of course, so I will try to address the issue you propose without being biased.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Thanks!
    My intial thoughts is there is no such thing, as Algiers now is a real spaghetti of Kabyles,Shaouis ect

    Anyways, Hopefully next year you will find your other half ;)

    The problem we will not hear from you again because you will be too buzy with hubby!

  85. Awwww ATO sounds to me like you'd miss me if I stoped writing :)

    Don't worry I will never find anyone lol and if I did then I will write about it, point is, I will never stop writing, I simply love it too much.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Yes, because I will be forced to do something productive with my time! lol

    Obviously I am learning a lot about Algerians in this blog and it would be a shame if you stopped.

    You will find someone I am sure, you have brains and personality.

  100. Forcement un post qui parle de peripatetitienne et tu as 107 commentaires - certes pas le plus haut nombres mais quand meme, dan le top 10! Tdw s'est laissé avoir par ton langague "na3dine" mais le fond est bien la: ce n'est pas que sur la corniche d'Alger ou les grands hotels ou tu "les" retrouves mais bien ou que tu ailles... Peut-etre que c'est l'interdit ou un désir masculin d'avoir des experiences, mais le "first liner" algérien n'est pas super genial - il faudrait arreter de diffuser Mad Men sur Canal Algérie ;-).

  101. Oh comme t'es poli Mr. Anonymous, oui en effet un poste qui parle de Péripatéticienne!! et pourquoi ca n'aurait pas 107 commentaires, grâce a toi j'en suis au 108ème d'ailleurs ;)

  102. Par ou commencer ''elles me snobent les filles d'Alger'' une si belle phrase pour commenter ton commentaire, mais en vérité qu'es que le snobisme la nouvelle tendance des Algériens et Algériennes,
    Le snob est celui qui craint d'avouer qu'il s'ennuie et qu'il s'amuse, quand il s'amuse...
    Sans café ni cigarettes j'ai du mal a continué, to be continued !

  104. DZ-Chick je t'adoreeeeeeeeeeee, tu es tout simplement hilarante. Si tu n'avais pas ete inventee, il aurait tout simplement fallu le faire!

    Sheba eh sheba, sheba benti bleddi, they might be beautiful but the attitudes are questionable, that's for sure.
    They snobbed you because you are now an emigree, ha ha!

    'Une est maquillee comme une voiture volee et l'autre fait le genre de fille qui fait des yousyous quand elle jouit' nahl sheitan tu les sors d'ou tes comparaisons? J'aime enormemenent...... bien que je n'apprecie jamais quand une femme appelle une consoeur une pute ou tout autre terme derogatoire. L'union fait la force tres chere dz-chick. As Jose Bergamin has suitably stated 'true solidarity is only possible among the solitary'.

    Quel est ce mot vulgaire? Aide une soeur a apprendre notre langue dans toute sa richesse, j'attends la reponse impatiemment!

    That was one of your funniest posts, if not THE funniest, by far. I loved it. 5*

    PS: That makes me want to go to DZ

  105. T’es sympa toi  Miss Polémique, je ne dirais pas que c’est un de mes favori mais j’aime quand même.
    Je le trouvais assez bien pour l’avoir publié then et même si je ne le vois plus de la même manière maintenant ou même dans un an, je me vois obligée de le garder tel quel.
     
    Pour les comparaisons et le reste…la vie ma belle, la vie, les gens…
     
    Et oui tu devrais aller en Algerie, il est grand temps ma chère.

  106. @DZ-Chick, damn you are not a chick, you are a writer!!
    I find this article so incredibly humorous!
    Your integrity regarding your work and leaving it tel quel, is greatly commandable, auto-censoring is not very attractive or brave.

    Inshallah pour l'Algerie. ;-)
