It All Happened So Fast


A photo from my last day at my Paris office. Now back in the States, emotionally preparing myself for croissants the size of suburban homes that taste like drywall.

I am happy to be home, too...with my man, whom I miss terribly when I'm away, despite video iChat. And hot showers with plenty of water pressure. And customer service that actually involves an interest in serving the customer (I'm not talking about the kind you attempt to get on the telephone, of course.)

And, Tuesday night, assuming I survive a combination of my column deadline and jet lag, I've been asked by Pajamas Media to cover the election from Schwarzenegger headquarters at the Beverly Hilton. Pretty exciting. And, in case you're wondering, I voted for Arnold (and lost a couple lefty friends over it!) and wish more Republicans would be like him.

As Amy's occasional Paris roommate, I can attest that her iChat sessions with Greg are most sweet.

Good luck with your transition back to everyday life here, Amy. At least we have good Mexican food. I came back to a very clear desk with very explicit "notes to myself" (which were not, I must add, in the tradition of Hugh Prather, that grandpappy of poetic pablum). So I was able to jump right back into work. With last night's visit from a fine local fuck buddy, I was able to jump right back into a few other favorite activities as well. We can't complain, my little chickadee. Life is good.

Where are you working today? I'm slaving over a hot manuscript too.

Avocados in Paris are particularly dreadful, and I'm not sure why.

I'm going to take a nap then go over to my usual Saturday work place, should you care to pop over. Will e-mail you.

Avocados in Paris are particularly dreadful, and I'm not sure why.

I think it's more that they're particularly divine in S. California, close to where they're grown commercially.

The wiki-page contains this gem:

"The English name for the avocado is derived from its Nahuatl name 'ahuacatl', meaning testicle (due to its shape)".

Don't ever say the Internet ain't educational.
