I have a kid (I think I am the father) age 14. I don’t listen to him so why should I listen to a brat who doesn’t speak English like an American?

That’s a bold exclamation to make here.

Yeah right. Dutch weblog Alt0169 called her the perennial 13-year-old in 1999. You can buy the CD, if this is your thing.

By the way, mouchette is French for fly.

Actually, mouchette is French for an outer fillet; moulding plane; snuffers (for candle); barnacles (for horse); or nose-ring (for pig or bull)…anything, it seems, but a fly. Mouche is the proper French for “fly”…but perhaps it is a pet name where the “-ette” was added to the end of the noun to make it diminutive.

I stand corrected…although I was aware that it was a slangish word.

I think the name also used to be explained somewhere on that site. Probably something to the effect of “small fly.”

Just the character’s name, really =)

Or “petite mouche”, yeah…
