    • Thanks, Bekr. I know I will. Did I tell you I cut my hair off, too?? Kind of Sabrina-esque, n’est pas?

    Fantastique! Je suis tellement excité pour tu. Paris a volé mon coeur de San Francisco, vraiment. En fait, j’étais là il ya une semaine. Si vous allez au Louvre, essayez la Porte du Lion abord pour une saisie plus rapide. Et oui, boire tout po je suis impatient de lire tout cela. ~molly

    • I’m not even going to try to answer in French, although I did read it with no trouble! I have not heard of this Lion Door. I know what I’ll be reading up on during the flight! Thanks, Molly!

  7. I’ve been exploding with joy ever since you told me you were doing it! I’m so excited that you are going on this adventure.

    And Mr. Wonderful is truly wonderful for getting how much you needed this time to fill yourself up.

    Take pictures. Write. Lounge.

    Tu es magnifique! C’est vrai! Bon voyage, mon amie.

    • Yes, Mr. Wonderful really is wonderful. Because being me ain’t easy!

      I’m bringing my mini-netbook with me, so if my fingers can handle the itty-bitty keyboard you may hear from me while I’m there!

    • Thanks, Donnell. I learned a lot, and enjoyed a lot. One of the most interesting: Charles Beaudelaire, quoted in today’s post, an essayist and pioneering translator of E.A. Poe. ;-)

  13. Enjoying living out an Audrey Hepburn-like adventure through your eyes and words. Amuse-toi bien à Paris! I just Googled that and I hope it doesn’t translate to something like, go fly a kite. Have fun in France!
