save a prayer

Filed under: good time girl — petiteanglaiseparis @ 5:37 pm

I have two simultaneous conversations on gmail chat (also known as a three-way) with my two favouritest and best gay friends. The only background information you need to know is that we had lunch at the Trésor prior to one of my recent dates.

zemickelino to me:   rhino and I said a little prayer for you at Notre Dame des Médailles Miraculeuses after we left you yesterday

me to zemickelino:   wha?!?!

me to rhino:   you *didn’t* really say a prayer for my punani in church yesterday? I’m sure Mickelino is winding me up…

rhino to me:   of course we did! It was the Church of Miracles. bit spooky actually

me to rhino:   you are officially on pre-date praying duty from now on ;-)

zemickelino to me:   did he have nice fesses?

What would I do without these guys?


  1. Punani?

    As in the same punani as Ali G?

  2. Mind you, although we did say a prayer for you, I have to confess (ooh, it’s catching) that we spent *much* longer in the Conran Shop round the corner – we ARE pouffs, after all!! :-)

  3. PUNANI! Ahahahaha! Nice one! I didn’t know you used Ali G’s lingo. He used to crack me up (more as Ali G than Borat). I love Michelino’s blog, especially his little videos. Good choice of friends I’d say. ;-P

  5. I’d say there are way more important things that people should be praying for…

  7. Yay, I love frog with a blog! :D

  8. All my mind’s eye has conjured up after reading this is buttocks, buttocks and more buttocks attached to one very desirable person who incidentally has eloped to France for the weekend to go and show off his glorious derriere. Arse!

  9. Our Lady of the Miracles does work wonders!! Oh Lord (oh it IS catching!) I’ve started printing small golden medals with your face and a cocktail carved in them.

    15€ a piece, who’s interested?

    PS: You still haven’t answered the last question…

  12. I wonder if one should use a euphemism in church, or should you use the medical term?

    “and, Lord, ummm, could you please bless my friend’s…you know…the part down there. And, ummm, oh yeah, please give us world peace and end hunger, Amen.”

  13. You absolutely couldn’t live without them! Has it taken you this long to figure out that gay men are a straight woman’s best friends?

  14. God bless them!

  15. I have no idea what a fesses is but I’m presuming you got laid.

    Comment by Annie Rhiannon — May 19, 2007 @ 2:19 am

  16. …just listen to them. They believe in you, fair deal. Most here do believe in you, whatever may happen. Such support is great and rare. However you deserve it or not ain’t the question. It exists. Keep living, keep telling & writing.
    One day may come with great “fesses” and hopefully, all you can expect around this “fesses”… Maybe you like these people ‘cos they state simple things you’d like to say. Thank ’em for that, and keep smiling ;)

  17. I’m sceptical about the power of prayer.. I pray for a Punani regularly, yet none arrive :-(

    Comment by oxo — May 19, 2007 @ 10:52 am

  18. It is not the Church of Miracles or Our Lady of Miracles. It is the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal. You can learn more about it here:

    I usually stay around the corner when I’m in Paris. It’s a fascinating chapel and the people there are lovely and goodness, isn’t there much about which to pray these days?

    Comment by purple — May 19, 2007 @ 1:46 pm

  19. Are you sure they prayed for your punani and not for some nice fesses for themselves? Anyway, it seems to have worked but not quite as well as you’d hoped.

  20. Seems like an excellent idea, could be a whole new market for the Vatican. Punani blessings after confession, or should it be before?

  21. Sometimes, I’m coming on this weblog and I think it will be a wonderfull thing if it was in french because i’m french…

    Je viens parfois sur ce weblog et je pense que se serait merveilleux s’il était (aussi) écrit en francais…

  22. Hiya Petite,
    Unlurking ‘cos the coincidence is just too amazing – nothing about fesses, but Notre Dame des Médailles Miraculeuses…I’d never heard the name before a month ago, then I went to Notre Dame cathedral with hubbie at the end of April and we ended up sheltering from a TORRENTIAL downpour in a souvenir shop. My eye fell on this little credit-card size image, and I bought it; it was only after I saw the rather unusual name. The following day a friend of mine referred to the Virgin in exactly the same way (I don’t have conversations about the Virgin Mary every day btw! it was a somewhat rare event in itself), and I keep coming across it ever since – Internet, books, newspaper, tv news even, and now chez toi as well! Very bizarre…must be a message for me somewhere…

  23. Is there a patron saint of punani? (Whatever the hell that is, though I could probably guess….)

    Comment by Dave of the Lake — May 21, 2007 @ 4:18 am

  24. I’m a fag hag and have been one for many years. I’ve even gotten 3 adopted sons through my very own fag (from his previous relationships when he was still a little confused, not me, he would be horrified!)

    They are the best friends in the world, words do not describe the joy, fun and support they give to me (even without any sex involved). Sometimes I think that’s why the relationship can be so amazing & so fun, the power to hurt through a sexual relationship is taken away.

    Ain’t friends wonderful?!?!

  25. Thought I’d post a link to some rather fetching ‘fesses’ for those who are curious:

    Not sure if any belong to Petite ;)

  26. With God on your side, there will be no stopping you!

    I love Tresor. Was in there with my brother and, not surprisingly, two of his gay friends. We were all having trouble ordering – me speaking little more than English with a corny French accent, and brother – who hasn’t lived in Paris for a while – apparently struggling with the divide between French and Swiss German. Finally he said to his friend “Oh my God, my French is so bad now that I never speak it!”

    The young, and quite handsome, waiter looked at my brother and said, “Hell dude, it’s way better than mine”, in fluent… Californian.

  27. So is the sequel good?

    Comment by Sally Lomax — May 21, 2007 @ 3:31 pm

    Comment by dawn — May 21, 2007 @ 7:05 pm

  29. doesn’t everyone just look on wikipedia these days, or do you need to be spoon fed?

    Comment by petite — May 21, 2007 @ 7:22 pm

  30. How did such word travelled that far?! Amazing, this ain’t “metro” (nothing to do with tube or ratp) speaking.
