The team of Monica !



I am a small Geller : a little first class as Ross and very very manic organization and storage, and big competitor of life as Monica.

I'd really like to be Phoebe, which is still the personality the most flawless of F.R.I.E.N.D.S : generous, funny, without complexes, open-minded, free, original, creative and intelligent. All the characters in the series have big flaws, but Phoebe I see. Bref, I'm not Phoebe.

I love things to be well organized, I can spend hours day or night thinking about my home and how I could optimize spaces and put-aways.

We live in Paris, and priced per metre square, every centimeter counts (I paid my apartment 85 cents of cm2, Yes I did the calculation :D). So I tried to go a max of things at me, kind many things (It has even been the subject an article at Ikea). And everything returned to the centimetre, I hate that you move things at me, What anguish the episode where Chandler moved furniture and where we can no longer keep its feet on the footrest from the couch.

And then cram everything to store, but not store so that nothing will exceed (and while fucked no matter how closets), store to easily find things, and want to store them (because it is well thought). I spend a lot of time thinking about where should things go. A bit like the notes cleverly scattered there blocks where Monica is needed, I try to have things where I need, and naturally I want to put history that they always return to their place. But I will make you a little topo there top one of these 4 because it is a subject of the utmost importance.

And then it does not mix everything, at me there 2 types of tea towels : a blue hand, a white dishwashing (I have 3 of each that I change regularly), initially I was party to 4 categories of tea towels, but I could not become an as tyrant of the daily I am still reasonable. There are also my towels and those for guests. Station that is wrong… (non I kidding I keep it for me in real, I oblige anyone to eat his cookies over the sink).

When I realize that I managed to simplify me life and to gain time and in comfort with all these efforts is a small genuine victory. And as my life is a challenge I have my small domestic medals table. I believe that I never do anything as well as when it represents a challenge to my eyes, I have the competition in the blood I do not understand how my parents have not made me an Olympic champion so I move mountains when I have a goal in mind. My carrot of life this is the victory, but not on the other : about myself.

And finally it is not so much shame that being a little Monica, at level 34 it's starting to be pretty ^^

    I have to be at the level 4 or 5 only, but the sponges for specific use, the towels and other cloths Microfiber under the same, towels it is requested to do not mix, This speaks to me much, a lot.
    A little crazy? Perhaps, but in fact it is made to make life easier and softer.
    What excuse our fresh psycho-madness.

    Looking forward to read your post about how you make sure that everything still finds its place, This is one of my fights at home…

    Team Monica also, I like things to be done well and it as well often hears that I'm unable to delegate… My boyfriend calls me besides the Monica of the trip because I am a true Tared travel organization, I plan everything from A to Z to cope with contingencies once minimal on-site… I would so love to be a Phoebe also, madwoman, dreamer, generous and who care about nothing, Anyway, the Monica have good sides also fortunately ^^

    the episode of the Routine passes NOW (It is 12:45) on NT1 :)

  4. 24 February 2016 at 12:46

    I have a small side Monica also, to all master, and a bit of Chandler I think, for the sarcastic and cynical side.
    It suits me well, These are my two favorite series characters, far ahead Pheobe who lacks a bit of depth to my taste and I am far from finding as perfect as you but I could not really say why… As you say, Overview, It does not appear to have a major flaw, It may be that in the end but that makes me WinCE ! It is too fishy :-)

      Me I find it cool, She has convictions, but it pisses anyone (on his vegetarianism by ex), She is hyper honest. His failure to the screen is to be too original but I never found that it was a defect actually. You are right it is fishy…

    Team Monica also, I am a maniac of the Organization, the storage, and in addition I have a TOC, What aggravates my case ;)
    My husband is much less organized it makes me mad sometimes ! Ah voilaa, My husband, This is Phoebe !

    “initially I was party to 4 categories of tea towels” : Thanks for this phrase !! that says it all !! :) :) :)

  12. 24 February 2016 at 14:24

    I would rather Phoebe to 70%, Rachel at 15% and Monica 15% (for her secret closet of brothel and his bulimia of child !)

  13. 24 February 2016 at 15:15

    You are right it is fishy...

  14. 24 February 2016 at 15:19

    Me too I'd rather a Phoebe (mixed with the Rachel would you like my sister :D) and a touch of Chandleur for puns rotten but I'd have a bit more of Monica and I am a nullasse in organization and planning…It would really make me gain in efficiency, for example it's been since the beginning of the blog that I think need me to do me 3-4 posts feed, what I've never managed to make…#heaviness
    Bisou !

  15. 24 February 2016 at 16:23

    help ! Urgent need of your post on the art of store to find….. Because when I range I can no longer find, so it's not rational…. I have some boxes baskets galore funds but it doesnt !

  16. 24 February 2016 at 16:57

    Are you also like to hunt down those who rebouchent not well felts “until you hear a click ptit” ? :)))

    I don't do and will unfortunately never do part of team Monica, I too live in the brothel…

    • 24 February 2016 at 19:00

      Haha no because I am myself a little disabled the filler, kind I screwed ever well boucons on cylinders and jam lespots :D

  17. 24 February 2016 at 17:14

    I have two types of tea towels : for hands and dishes but I does not classify by color ;)
    After I understand very well the will of rationalization/organization. May be (surement ?) do you know the book “the magic of the storage” husband Kondo ?

    • 24 February 2016 at 18:59

      Yes I read it, but I've really learned much, the book summarizing in a nutshell : Throw !

      • 27 February 2016 at 10:04

        Not false, c’est vrai que c’est beaucoup ça! (mon homme dit exactement la même chose à ce sujet). However, elle conseille de garder ce que l’on aime vraiment et de déculpabiliser par rapport auxcadeaux offerts qu’on n’ose pas jeter”. Puis je trouve intéressant ses méthodes de rangementà la verticale”.

  18. 24 February 2016 at 21:15

    Wahoo, to 85 centimes le cm2, ça nous met un 100 m2 à 8500€. Je veux l’adresse de ton agence immobilière ! 😁 Je pourrais pousser enfin mes murs!

    • 24 February 2016 at 21:26

      Haha merde je me suis trompée ça faisait 8,5€ y a une virgule mal placée :D

      • 24 February 2016 at 21:45

        Oulah, il y a du mélange dans les ordres de grandeurs !
        1m²=10 000cm² donc si c’était 0.85€/cm², ça ferait 8500€/m² ce qui me semble cohérent. Du coup tu avais raison au début.

        J’étais justement venue pour dire qu’avec ce qui est marqué dans l’article, It was €85000 / m² what we are fortunately still far from finding in Paris.

        Perso, I'm not too manic on the put-away but, as you can see, It is for the numbers to that everything is in order (Nerd power:)).

    Friends is so a reference !
    With my sister we so devoured the seasons of this series.
    For once, I totally agree with you about the character of phoebe but like you I did not all these qualities.
    I think to be a good mix of Joey (I love to eat and I'm still a little to the West) and Monica (with this famous replica “I am stressed, I am stressed….should I do the dishes !)

  20. 24 February 2016 at 22:56

    Do you use a small vacuum cleaner to sweep the grand also? =p
    Phoebe. <3

  21. 24 February 2016 at 23:12

    Frieeeends !! Cult. I'd like to have a bit of tone on the side of Monica ;) I'd be more like Rachel at this level here !

    Ah ah mais oui Geller Forever ! Et la routine toute ma vie je me suis dit que je devais apprendre cette choré !

    Tu crois que ça peut envoyer en danse comme ouverture de bal à un mariage ?? Mwaha !

    Sinon je ne sais pas qui je suisJe me pose souvent la question (étant donné que je me refais l’intégrale régulièrement !)

    Je suis une malade du rangement et de la propreté comme Monica, mais je suis aussi une enfant gâtée accro au shopping comme Rachel (bon j’ai pas encore sa carrière professionnelle…), et je suis parfois complètement barrée et sur ma planète comme Phoebe (et au passage je suis ravie de lire ce que tu dis à son sujet, j’ai souvent entendu que Phoebe était un personnage inutile à la série, ça me fait bondir de colère à chaque fois !). Je me reconnais moins dans les mecs en revanche

    • 25 February 2016 at 21:09

      Grave la routine pour un mariage c’est parfait !

      • 25 February 2016 at 22:53

        Okay prochain salon Andy je veux voir un atelierChoré de la Routine !” 😊

    Ca me fait penser à Gretchen Rubin et ses “4 tendencies”. Tu dois donc être uneupholder”, enfin je sais pas, à toi de faire le test si ça te dit.
    Moi je suis unequestionermais je comprends tout à fait ton mode de rangement, je suis pareil, j’ai pris un temps fou à organiser la maison quand mon mec et moi avons emménagé à Portland. New home + nouveau mode de vie zéro déchet, il a fallu partir de zéro, surtout pour la cuisine et le garde-manger, acheter des bocaux en verre pour ranger les denrées que j’achète en vrac, etc.
    Anyway, merci de partager ces bouts de vie.

    Et au fait en combien de categories Monica range-t-elle ses serviettes?

  26. 27 February 2016 at 9:31

    Je pense que je suis plutôt Rachel, avec une pointe de Chandler, je ne me suis jamais reconnue dans Monica, other the fact to love cooking.
    For organizing and storing everyone says I'm weird. My clothes are stored by colors in the Cabinet, CA I would like, In contrast to have 10 tops and 5 low in bulk on wheelchair ca not me not interfere.
    And if I take a pen on the desk, and I put it on another table he can stay there for days before I stored in its original place. My hairdresser is never stored, technically every thing has a place but it is so packed that I have not the time to store the morning.
    However I'll join you for tea towels and hand towels, I have no color code but there are two different batteries, pareils pour les serviettes, There are those for guests rows apart in the guest room (I life in a big house in the Normandy countryside the cm2 is much less expensive that has Paris) the sheets also but it is rather a flaw of not liked that others use my business that of “the order and storage” in the same kind I have my own coffee mug and nobody has the right to use)

    J’adore cet article ! And I recognize myself well…
