while we're all sending you lovely messages, I just want to let you know that I have a very vivid memory of being drunk and googling what 'comme d'habitude' meant because i visited your blog so much and my drunk-self HAD to know what it meant at that very moment. anyway yes you're lovely never change xoxo londowney

I’ve had the same blog title for over four years, pretty much since I started. I’ve thought about changing it, ‘cause I would occasionally get a “Are you French?” message so I see that it’s a bit misleading.  

But I’m nothing if not sentimental.  It’s the same reason why I haven’t changed my URL (except for that short-lived moment when I was misterbillclinton) even though I’m really more of a muffin person.

For those who don’t know, my blog’s title is "Comme d’habitude".  It’s from the French song of the same name which, at one point, was on repeat non-stop on my iPod.  It means “as usual” and is the basis for the song "My Way" famously sung by Frank Sinatra.

Oh, and thank you!

ok, so I saw that on RDJ's Facebook, he got a photo from your blog and I have never been so oddly joyful/giddy for another person in my life! Congrats <3 b-ehemoth

Thank you. I was giddy, too.

Today, a part of me is thinking that that kinda made me a little bit of a target (ex. it’s the only way I can explain how this dude found me in the first place). But eh, I’ll take it.

Ok, good. The parallels between the two messages are too obvious to ignore.
I just figured that he would&#8217;ve at least changed his wording or something, so as not to be obvious but hey.
Having said that, I&#8217;m partially in agreement with that &#8220;Ted&#8221; guy on that FB post.  Personally, my favorite posts on RDJ&#8217;s Facebook are the non-Marvel ones (ex. the bumming-around-the-house glasses post, the art posts) because I feel like those ones, RDJ actually made.
Most of the other posts are by the intern and/or they&#8217;ve rigged up some sort of a queue timer (because it&#8217;s always posted at either 9am PST or 9:15am or something incredibly specific like that).
At the same time, I understand the predominance of Marvel posts on his FB. Those are the ones that get the most likes &#8212; which would indicate that they&#8217;re the ones that the majority of his FB watchers want.  The times when he didn&#8217;t post Marvel (ex. the art posts, that time he posted Chef, when he posted his cousin&#8217;s video), people mostly ignored them. Which kinda makes me sad, really.
Honestly, he caters to what the fans want.  If you don&#8217;t want him in Marvel anymore or you want him to stop playing Stark, all you need is to be the vocal majority about it.  And he will.
But currently, that&#8217;s not the case.  There are far more people who want to see him as Stark as opposed to those who do not (ex. that guy I was talking to last week, this guy).  So until then &#8230;

Hey.

So earlier this afternoon I got this message—

Ok, I deleted it, ‘cause (1) the person’s askbox is not active, so it would be like a one-sided conversation, and (2) it’s troll-ish — new account started today, sudden reblogging spree for legitimacy, inactive askbox as stated above, etc.

But then I logged on RDJ’s Facebook and lookie what I saw:

Now tell me, is it or is it not the same guy?
