Totally Frenched Out

She's making a list and checking it twice

I should've known it wouldn't be that easy. Things were just going too well with my new Tunisian client. So enter the Tunisian customs agents who are holding our machine hostage, meaning I am no longer going to Tunis this week. The problem is that I need to rebook everything today if I don't want to lose out on all that money (airfare, car rental, hotel, etc), but I don't know when to rebook it for since I don't know when the customs people will stop acting like the big, fat babies they are. (You hear that customs people??)

So I find myself with an entire week with absolutely nothing to do, nothing planned. But because the idea of looking at a completely blank calendar freaks me out, I am starting to fill it. At the top of my list is finding a way to rig up a curtain so that I can at last get a decent night's sleep. Second on my list is *finally* going to visit Ms Kyliemac. Third - maybe trying to get a haircut and highlights if I'm brave enough (or conversely, if I feel like torture). Fourth - unpacking the last of my boxes and organizing the mess of papers & books that are strewn everywhere. Fifth - checking out which movies have been released recently. Sixth - get groceries since I literally have nothing to eat. Seventh - catch up on the new fall episodes of all my favorite shows (which up until now have been put aside in favor of obsessively watching "Weeds"). And on and on. Knowing my luck though, my French clients will harass me non-stop all week, and I'll get none of the above done!

i would recommend putting the grocery shopping before the *finally* visiting kyliemac, because i don't want you to starve before you get here!!!

Be careful, I started obsessively watching Weeds and now I live where they shoot it. I am not saying that will happen to you--but I did want to warn you. ;-)

Eighth - finding a plane ticket that detours through Chicago so you can visit Alisa :)

That is sad you're not going to Tunis anymore... did the customs people say why they're holding the machine hostage?

I don't know if you'll be able to get this in France, but if you can, it is somewhat interesting if you like old movies and old TV shows:

So, what you're saying is that you're Santa Claus? Or should I say, Samma Claus? I apologize for the dad joke, just couldn't help myself! I hope you get some $h!+ done, Santa!!
