Alpine report # 1

I've been drinking heavily for days, but I've dried myself up just enough to take a couple minutes to see how everyone's Christmas was. All good? I hope you all enjoyed a fabulous holiday!

Ok, so I'm typing on a French keyboard, and those cheeky bastards put all the keys in different places. The only thing that curbs my rage is the fact that I love everything else about this place...

1. I have eaten so much cheese that I think I'm turning into cheese I think I'm turning into cheese I really think so.

2. The wine section takes up six aisles of a grocery store. That's fucking awesome!

3. This photo was taken while I enjoyed my morning coffee from the balcony of my chalet.

4. Today I bought moonshine off the back of a rickety truck up in the mountains. There was a distilling wagon parked on the side of the road, and I felt compelled to get in on the action. So I hung out with some very surly Alpine farmers, and I'll write a post about it once I upload the photos I took, because THESE GUYS TAKE THE CRAZY CAKE. No blindness to report so far, but stay tuned. This shit tastes like gasoline.

5. I know what you're thinking. That Kat is a total twat. And you'd be absolutely right. But France is full of 'em, so I think I might actually belong here.

more later... happy new year!

I hate you. I love you. Such is the complexities of life. Tell me more.

Oh, and the moonshine? My daddy has some out in his shed. Yep, tastes like gasoline.

I'll take aisles of wine instead. Thank you very much.

Meanwhile, everyone around me is a total stranger. Everyone avoids me like a Cyclone Ranger. Everyone.

I am going to have to gain 50 more pounds to contain my jealousy of you. Fortunately, I picked the perfect man for the job.

Well played, Rocket. Well played.

You're definitely turning into cheese with that first item. It could be the jealousy talking on my behalf. Or the moonshine. Happy New Year!

I'm jealous. I'm going to go to my room and pout now. But nothing, NOTHING can take away the joy I had watching 50 straight hours of Futurama last week. So bite my shiny metal ass.

Glad you're back!

I'm so glad you are having such a great experience. I'm envious, but no one deserves this break more than you. Not even me. Here's to 2008!

Miss la chat!

Hope France was happy. Scotland was cold. And boozy. And full of food. And in the UK they put the keys in the wrong place too! EUROFUCKERS! The @ key is way over by the enter key, what's that about? This practically ruined my holiday or would have if I'd bothered using the computer.
