(and, i'm a little disappointed--i wanted to go to that Beurger King place)
posted by amberglow 03 November | 23:05
The travel alarm's in your sock drawer and the ipod thingie's under some stuff on your desk.

Have a great time!

Have a great time, Amberglow. Pretend that you're an experienced traveller that disdains all that "touristy bullshit", then do it anyway when no one's looking.
posted by muddgirl 03 November | 23:32
nope and maybe, pudding...i've haven't gotten that far yet...
(it's such a pain--i usually leave that kind of stuff in my luggage, but not this time i guess)

i always do that, mud--except no cameras : >

Try the cassis with and without the champagne. You won't regret it.

Surely your absence will mean an uptick in Bush's approval rating?

It is owl?

I recently completed a French course, "c'est chouette" fell in the superlative category, it literally means it is owl but apparently translates to owl does hoot after all, the class was in fits of laughter at the comparison. Ok, i could have said c'est super.

Enjoy Paris!

posted by Chimp 04 November | 03:10
no no no ... hoot? Chouette is an idiom that simply means "Cool!"

cool indeed... How I miss Paris. Please enjoy it for us all amberglow!

p.s. don't forget the nic gum. It's a long flight mate. ymmv

Safe travel, Amberglow.

Any attempt you can make to speak french will be good, even if you're limited to first person singular.

Friends who live in Paris tell me that many/most Parisians are dismissive of those who make no attempt at all. You'll still get rolling-eye looks for massacre of the language, and fast slangy replies, but you're less likely to be totally ignored.

Memorize this phrase:

"Excuses pour mon mauvais Franšais. Je suis canadien. "

I'm jealous, amber! I've never been. Hasve a great time, bring stories back. And watch those riots - be safe.
posted by chewatadistance 04 November | 07:18
Have a *great* time, amberglow (and I'm sure you will without this exhortation!). Bonnes vacances!
posted by gaspode 04 November | 07:34
Yay amber, I'm so excited for you! Hope you have an amazing time!
posted by Frisbee Girl 04 November | 08:52
If anyone talks merd ask 'em if they've seen The Sorrow and the Pity.

Naw, for real, have a great time. And keep your eyes out -- many of the French have bobbing asses that wiggle and shake like a feeding duck's. Tasty!

They all speak English. Eat mad crepes. Oh and Hugh's right, the french got ass. If you're out at a party and a tall dude drunks up to you and says (in french and english) "welcome, there's tons of cheese asshole." That's my main man Dr. Jay. He's a good man, say Hi to one arm Antionne and Christopher. Get the blood orange orangina, it's so much better. Be safe, have fun.

They all speak English.

But they choose not to.

If you like the nightclubs, defo check Batofar - it's a decomissioned military frigate moored on the Seine down by the Francois Mitterand library. Had some fucking bonkers nights there when the Wire was celebrating its 25th anniversary a couple of years back.

Ah, Paris, such a lovely shithole. Or shitty lovehole. Can never decide.
