Long time, no blog!


Howdy partners. It's been a while, eh? I've just been busy, busy with work life and social life and didn't get around to blogging. But I am now, very thankfully, en vacances so I figured this was the occas to get my bloggin on. I do have some exciting plans to share with you, but I will wait a bit until it is 100% set in stone. In other news, here are a few random tidbits of news and happenings from the past two weeks:

-Taught ex-Roomie#1 how to say "to drink one's face off" aka se bourrer la gueule, hilarity ensued when she could not remember the order and said things like "I'm going to drink off your face." Ouch, that sounds painful.

-I was wearing my normal comfy French shoes(the shoes all French people wear that aren't sneakers/tennis shoes, but just shoes) and one of my kiddies in a Moyenne-Grande class remarked "my brother has the same shoes, Leah!"...this encouraged the rest of the class to tell me that their brothers, fathers and uncles had the same shoes as well. Just because they're brown doesn't mean they're boys shoes, geez!

-Went to an anglophone party in a bar on Thurs night...one drink free and 2 drinks half-off, this meant I paid 4 euros for a demi, vodka orange and a pinte. I think I will be going back, umm, every Thursday. Especially because besides the cheap booze, it was so random, I couldn't help but heart it. A bar after my own heart.

-And probably one of the best bits of news of them all...I got my little slip of paper saying I could go to the dreaded Trefecture and pick up my Tarte de Mes Jours!!! Yessssss, victory is (almost) mine!

PS-Can YOU guess where I'll be on December 6th?

Congrats on the tarte, and on the trip to Paris! Those two things + Toussaint = best week ever!

PS - very surprised that the tarte is done so quickly! Do you guys have super ovens at the Tref or something?

A-Nah, these were shoes I bought in Bordeaux with Lissa to replace those ones I bought with you! Re: the bar, I'm not sure. It was at Place St Anne on the corner across from the ATM(aka the street before rue de la soif.) We kinda stayed entre nous, there were a few young'uns that approached us after a bunch of people left, but they were pretty wasted, so we kinda ignored them!

ASL-Thanks and thanks! I think they must have lit a fire under their fesses and that's why it got done so quick! I'm betting they normally use an old wood-burning stove. ;)
