Last Week in Paris…

The stinky garbage strike finally ended…phew!


We had ice cream at Dammann’s on the quai Montebello…


I bought some fouque-ing seal oil to winterproof my shoes…


I found a place to swim au natural with Parisians…


…and my favorite chocolate shop in Paris gave me a nice, big bag of chocolates…for being such a good customer!

  • Just look at that expert ice cream holding. Mahvellous dahling. Interesting swimming pool find! You’ll have to try to sneak your camera in, it would make for some good blog material ;)

  • Hooray for free chocolate!

  • Dubbins is hard to find in the USA, where did you get that?

  • You meant to say you took bribes? I demand a blogger ethics investigation. How dare them not give me some too!

    Oh, and if you’re wondering, yes my universe is all me.

  • We were having a garbage strike?

    Man I wish I could go out and play with you.


  • 1. What are ‘dubbins’?

    2. Of course I didn’t take bribes. Who do you think I am, Tom DeLay?

    3. Yes, we in the ‘lesser arrondisements’ had a garbage strike. You missed it! Am looking forward to the nationwide strike next tuesday (October 4th). That should reach your neighborhood!
