It’s been on the chilly side here in Paris, but that doesn't stop people from freezing their bums off for a caffeine fix. This is a photo of a Starbucks near Bastille this past weekend. The line was so long it extended out the door. Apparently Seattle isn't the only place where people need a Starbucks fix.

Market Etiquette

After returning from my first long weekend chez les faux in-laws, the Brit and I went to the market. We stopped at one of the stands and when the man finished helping his customer and got us I told him (in French) that we would like a small roast chicken with potatoes. His reply was “s’il vous plait”. Oops…

Fingers Crossed

4 years ago French people asked me wtf was wrong with Americans. Well, they were more diplomatic in their questioning, but that was my reaction when idiot Bush’s reign was extended for another term. I couldn’t explain it and I’m hoping this time around Americans come to their senses and elect the only rational candidate. Because another term with Bush III and scary Alaskan lady would not only be frightening but would continue the country’s downward spiral.
