Francey pants

Happy New Year everyone!

I'm back home in Toronto and kids, have I got some stories for you.

But I have a hundred things to do before returning to work tomorrow morning, including this totally brilliant website for a fabuleuse french artist (who happens to be my sister-in-law).

So in the meantime, here's a slideshow of some photos I took on my trip. It's fucking awesome and there's only 25 images, so please humour me and watch it. Mousing over the image will give you the photo caption.

I've missed you.

Hey, the slide show got stuck at the super cold place! So I missed more than half your trip!

One question is burning a hole in the sack where I keep one questions: Did any French French make fun of your Canadian (Canadiench?) French?

That photo with all the trees in a row is so typical of France to me. There are so many roads in the country side look exactly like that!!!! It REEKS OF FRANCE DAMMIT! Just like the sunflower fields you get in the spring. Amazing.

I loved the snowscapes too. I do however, never want to drink Evian again. Not that I do now as it's too "soft" for drinking water I always think. Now I just think it has French man's pee in it.

Someone once asked W.C. Fields why he never drank water. "Because fish fuck in it," he replied, sipping his gin.

Phantastic photos!

The Evian water comment was actually just a joke...I should inform you all that Evian water comes from a natural spring/reservoir fed by a glacial lake, not the water in Lac Leman. It's probably safe to drink... when you run outta wine.

Oh, and Bert: OF COURSE THEY MADE FUN OF ME. They always do. And not just for my language skills.

If I didn't already like you so much, I would hate you so much out of purest jealousy.

So much.

You are truly a twat, KatRocket. A huge, wonderful twat that takes gorgeous pictures. No, not jealous at all. Bitch.

I've missed you too!

Wonderful photos Kat, I loves me some trees and the kids are adorable, I hope you swore at them and knocked them down. Welcome home.
