My name is Lilou Sticks and for the moment, I have nowhere to call home.

So everyday, I read, take pictures, watch films, eat cinnamon buns and cookies, go to museums, drink blue water, walk, I walk a lot, a whole lot, look at mirrors, listen to music, touch fabrics, taste and smell everything around me.

This is how I am trying to remember where I come from.

If you feel the same way I do, let’s try to find our homes together.

Your never gonna believe me

I found a workshop behind my cabinet door in my kitchen under my toaster. I thought I was dreaming but I wasn’t. There is workshop behind that cabinet door and I am not quite sure what to do about this.
I know what you are thinking: Santa Claus’s workshop.
That’s exactly what it looked like.

But I know he does not exist because I caught Zouzi eating the cookies I left for him last Christmas and Zouzi said:
“I’m sorry Lilou.”

Here is what happened.

I was sitting in bed two nights ago, and remember how I told you I couldn’t sleep?
Well I decided I was so hungry that I just had to put something in my stomach.

So I did.

It was so quiet and the clock said 1:30 and that is when I heard a laugh, like a little funny giggle.
I looked outside the window but it was so still. No one was out there.

So I went back to sit down and again I heard more noises, and they were so strange. I stopped chewing and followed the sound. It was coming from under my toaster. 

There was a cabinet door but it was not a real one, I knew that it was shut tight.
I stuck my ears to the door and heard the noises. It sounded like music and bells and people. 

Even though I knew it was closed I opened it. It opened. And I fainted.

Then I woke up and looked again and I rubbed my eyes but the workshop was still there!
Lights, colors and it smelled like vanilla and there were little people wearing funny clothes and they were chatting and laughing and working and some were even dancing funny dances!

No one seemed to notice that I was looking at them from my kitchen cabinet!
Then I closed it. 

This morning I woke up on the kitchen floor.
I still don’t remember how or when I fell asleep.
Now the noise was gone and I tried opening the cabinet again but it was shut tight just like before.
I was not dreaming.
I was awake when I saw it and every time I think of it I get so excited I feel like I am going to faint again!
I am going to show you, I’m going to take a picture.

Last night waited in front of the cabinet, but I fell asleep.
I am going to try again tonight.
