    I'm looking forward to reading this blog after having read your posts at Rue Rude. I couldn't subscribe though, your rss is broken.

    Well, I asked if you were making a blog statesid and here's the answer to my question. You're in my bloglines now...

    Hello there. I know you already arrived in LA. (I saw the posts) I wish u good luck with your new life back home (I know what it feels to go abroad for a while then come back to home). You come back to home and you have the weird impression that you don't belong there as everything has changed. Again I wish you the best!

    well well. back where home is.

    Today's quotation

    • In Paris, the purest virtue is the object of the filthiest slander.

        –Honoré Balzac (1799-1850), in Scènes de la vie privée

      À Paris, la vertu la plus pure est l'objet des plus sales calomnies.
