As you could probably tell from the posts this week (unless you are reeeeeally not paying much attention), we are back! The unimitatable TsuruBride (aka Baby) and I spent last week in Paris (with a day trip to Lyon on Baby’s birthday to visit our friends Isa & Ben from Our Society). What an amazingly awesomely awesome trip it was!
Paris Graffiti No. 1
Epic…. So epic…. but unfortunately with a week off from work and the impending time off for the holidays, work is doing a double-time, if not a triple-time, on our asses. So, though the posts may be a little few & far between until things settle down a bit, we’ll do what we do as much as we can do it…
But back to Paris. I’d never gone before, Baby had gone a few times — it is her favourite place and like I said it was her birthday (the big 3-0), so really, what better way to celebrate? — Exactly, there is no better way.
What can I say about the trip? It’s fucking Paris! It’s beautiful, it’s romantic, it was rainy & grey & amazing!
Ah, all things chaud, all things chaud. Yes, it was chilly — though really, crappy weather in Paris kicks crappy weather in Columbus’s ass any day of the week — so that may have had something to do with it, but I’d never had “vin chaud” before — nor chaud crepes with motherfucking nutella — and, well, let’s just say, chaud & I are now intimately familiar with each other.
Wait, that sounded weird.
I’ll tell you what… instead of my jibber-jabberin’ and really offending even more Parisians — yeah, that was me who spilled his red wine on the group of Parisian business men at the table next to us when we deeked into a cafe on Rue Mouffetard — how we get to the good stuff? You see, I brought you back a little sumtin-sumtin…
No, it’s not much, just a little thing we “picked up”. A little mixtape and a little film I made, you know, no biggie.
So, while I get to work so I can get this weekend on — 3 xmas parties… hooray (I’m tired already) — how about you load up our little film, then load up our epic mixtape and come along with us down the rues of Paris (and a little Lyon), where the vin is chaud, the baguettes are hard — lol — where the croques are extra cheesy, and the mustard ain’t really all that yellow as….
