Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

I love the internet. Besides being a lifesaver during my time in Bretagne and giving me some absolutely wonderful blogger friends, it is currently allowing me to listen to last night's presidential debate in its entirety. I'm about half-way through and am still not blown away by Obama - did anyone else notice he was stuttering a lot? I mean, I agree with most of what he has to say, but he just doesn't "speak" to me the way he seems to do to a lot of other people.

I also have to give a shout-out to RhumRhum mania last night - it was LOADS of fun. I haven't laughed that much in a long time. I am so lucky to have found such a great group of friends here. The only downside is that I have so much fun with you guys that it's constantly making me push back my goal for these next few months - ie. meet more French people and speak more French. Things would be different if I was sitting home alone all the time, but there's constantly someone doing something. Rhumrhums last night, "the dark knight" tonight, "mamma mia" & the new ladurée bar tomorrow - it just doesn't end! But who can complain about that?

i say they're brandy-colored, marabou-trimmed satin kitten-heeled mules.

I haven't watched the debates. Both of their voices really irritate me actually.

I can't wait to read your "review" of the new Ladurée bar.

I watched the debate yesterday as well, and I definitely support Barack Obama and am voting for him. The debate format might not be the best way to show how he is able to "speak" to people, like you said. I saw him speak in person, though, and met him briefly afterwards (he was doing a series of town hall meetings in Central/Southern Illinois a couple of summers ago), and he really was amazing. He took a lot of different questions (that were not planned ahead of time) and answered them honestly (not just saying what the person wanted to hear). He's extremely intelligent and charismatic, and I think he'll do an excellent job of leading our country and representing it abroad. I also think he's the right person to lead the U.S. in a new direction, unlike John McCain.

Be sure to vote!

hey, i know you already voted, but i just watched this video and thought maybe you'd like to see it... it made me really itching to go canvass tomorrow (even though i hate canvassing) and get the word out. maybe you'll look at him a bit differently when there's not a thousand cameras on him (which kind of goes back to what casey said about seeing him in person). anyway, enjoy!
