(the misadventures of an expatriate corporate dropout)

Saturday, February 27, 2010


I've got some sort of bug that has me fevered and coughy and sneezy and drippy. a couple more and I could do a snow white remake.

I spent Friday in bed and think I might do the same today ... luckily, my upholstery class was cancelled due to school holidays.

I'm bummed because I was s'posed to go to Paris this week-end for a 'fiancaille' (engagement) celebration for JY's daughter. Instead ... well, see above :-(

It has been a rather mundane week. I thought it was shaping up for fun ... I had 2 lunch dates and the weather was nice.

both lunch dates fell through and I can only gaze longingly at the weather from my window ...


otoh, it is only a cold. I will survive. here's to next week hurrying here...

PS-any of my readers more savvy with French traditions like the fiancaille ... hit me up with some ideas for a cool yet traditional gift ... she's only 25 so make it hip ... xx

Get well soon!

By the time you finish up with your cold, my feet should be on French terra firma...

Maybe your traumatic experience with the car wreck led to your illness. Feel better soon

Depends how well you know her tastes, but I notice among friends' kids they like a subscription to a magazine or newspaper that goes on for ever.

"Startin' trouble" is all I needed! I just stumbled upon your blog and I think I've found a kindred spirit. I'm anxious continue following. I've gone back to your beginning (best place to start) and though I haven't read it all, our stories are similar. Love it and get better. My Rx...red wine and chocolat

hope you feel better soon.

Italian friend says the best cure is a bottle of red wine (although I think its more that you just don't care how ill you are afterwards!).

Take care
