Shaboom sends her update from Paris, France:
Despite the insomnia, I woke up at 9am. KILL ME. Actually, it was a really nice morning, possibly my last day of freedom, with sunshine, birds chirping, spring weather and a great breakfast... so great that I'm actually motivated to get out of bed and take a shower! OMG are you in shock? But, you know, not showering feels very French. You should try it, Karen. It might almost be able to cancel out the scrunchie-usage ...I said ALMOST.
Tomorrow I am going to live out all our teenage dreams - no, I won't be making out with Shaun Cassidy, Parker Stevenson, or even Leif Garrett (who totally fits the profile of the type of guy I normally date, btw.) I am going to be a waitress! In a French café! In St. Germain-des-Près! Cool, right?! Except for the part about waitressing, but let's just ignore that. And lets not think about how bloated I feel either, and how I'll undoubtedly start my period the minute I walk in those chic café doors... This does not feel very French.
But on a side note, VERY French, Oscar-winning actress Marion Cotillard has enough of a sense of humor to participate in a self-deprecating Funny Or Die Video:
On another side note, am I the only person on the planet who almost knocks herself out in the shower? Let me explain... I mean, there I am minding my own business under the hot water of my first shower in days, lavishing in scents of lavender and citrus and what not when I innocuously let loose some wind thinking nothing of it until ROTTEN EGGS start wafting into my nostrils. DAMN. Can't a girl catch a break?! I am my own worst enemy. Karen tells me it's all that cheese.
The cheese feels very French, but ripping death stench in the shower does not feel very French at all.
Pineapple, Pear, Clementine, Banana
Pain au Chocolat & Croque Monsier (grilled cheese and ham)
