A one and a two and a...

Christmas vacation has started here at the ecole, and very soon I'll be on a train to go meet the younger, cooler sibling in Paris. Posting will probably remain thin, so here are a few things to indicate what is going on in my life:

-I finished Slaughterhouse 5 and am now all excited about WWII and seeing all that WWII related stuff all up in Les Invalides.

-I have borrowed a diatonic accordion and--after a crash course in accordion--have been practicing polkas in the quiet of my apartment. Slowly, I am becoming some wierd American-French-Breton hybrid that will never fit in anywhere.

-I discovered that another American is living here in St. Pol. I had coffee with him and his mother the other day. The conversation was mostly about their travels and where they had lived. It was all very 'Auntie Mame' with a French accent.

Joyeux Noel a tous!

The Hardest Part

It is just 3 o'clock in the afternoon here in St. Pol de Leon, which means that just across the Channel, it is 2 o'clock. And that means that somewhat north of here in a town on that infuriating Island, there is one very nervous American, standing before her jury, no doubt sweating and probably wishing she had just stayed in equine therapy (horses don't write much, whereas Candaian/Jamaican eugenicists do).

Good luck sis! You are more brilliant than you think!
