Totally Frenched Out

Bilan for the weekend:
  • Thursday night - home around 4am, not sure of the exact time.
  • Friday night - home at 2:30am
  • Saturday night - home at 4:30am
  • Kilometers walked - way too many
  • Non-alcohol-related calories consumed - way too few
  • Money spent - probably better not to do the tally

A few of you kind souls have pointed out to me that maybe I'd be better off at home, resting, considering how sick and rundown I am. And you're probably right. But after the long hours I put in during the week and all the time spent alone while traveling, I so look forward to the weekend and being able to just go out and let loose. I keep saying "Next weekend, I'll rest!" Except I won't, because next weekend I will be in London for a Bachelorette Party (otherwise known as Leyla's Hen Do 2008) and the week after will be the big K&K Episode 200 party. And then I will leave straight for the US for work.

But with my co-worker in town this weekend, I couldn't exactly just sit at home and not show him the best Paris has to offer! For whatever reason, I feel the need to convince them all that I have a good thing going here, like I don't want them feeling sorry for me. Though I will admit that I am definitely not looking forward to heading out in today's snowy weather, especially considering the fact that I don't have a winter coat here and it's colder than a witch's tit outside. And actually inside as well - my windows are a really poor fit for the window so there are constant drafts of cold air coming in.

*goes off to think warm thoughts*

Oh man, between your "witch's tit" description and Juliet's "caca wet" translation, my Google reader is really keeping me in stitches today!

I think you'll have time to get some R&R on your trip back home. As long as your body is keeping up with you, I say, party on! Maybe you can borrow a coat from someone for the next two weeks. It'd be a shame to spend money on something you already have.

holy crap, I'm exhausted just reading how late you have come home in the last 4 days. I'm too old for such late nights. You are young, you live in Paris, you can rest when you are dead...enjoy! I am also curious how cold a witche's tit is?
