Not In Kansas Anymore
How do you know? When you wake up in the middle of the night to what looks like the sequel to the Edgar Allan Poe story, "The Monkey's Paw." Just one of the interesting artifacts in the apartment we're renting.

Is that an ashtray? A goblet? What do you do with it? And I believe 'The Monkey's Paw' was by W.W. Jacobs, if you mean the one that gives you 3 wishes, bwah-hah-ha.

I have a great friend whose sister always brought her back some sort of dead animal or dead animal part as a gift whenever she went on vacation. The first one was a taxidermized frog which was posed standing up and playing the cymbals. As the sister came into money, the gifts got nicer while still retaining the theme-- a kilt pin featuring a faceted amethyst mounted on the claw of a deceased raptor, for instance.

This would be right up her alley.

Well, there's a fantastic taxidermist in Paris, called Deyrolles, on rue du Bac, in the 7th arrondissement (district)). So, if ever you're over here, trot on over to the house of stuffed stuff.

Do you prefer apartments over hotel rooms when you're in Paris? I'm taking 2 of my kids (16 and 21) to Paris after Christmas for 10 days and have been debating the merits. Though I have reservations at a lovely little hotel by the Rodin Museum, I'm wondering if having a kitchen and a bit more space might be better.

Do not drink from that cup.

I'D drink from it, but I'd expect to have superhuman powers until the next full moon came, something like that.
Amy, my dove, I am totally envious that you can shop there. I immediately checked to see if they had a webpage and store, helas, no. If I knew exactly what I wanted from there, I would paypal you the money to buy and ship it to me.
Dammit, I hope they're open whenever I can get over there. Jealous, I say.

So how's the exchange rate? Mua-ha-ha!

Posted by: Paul Hrissikopoulos at November 30, 2006 8:48 PM

Grrrr! Great, if you're comparing the euro to the fifty-cent piece. Thank you, Mr. Bush!
