Pure magic.

A last (North) American hoorah in Paris

My favorite Torontian, Jenna, came up from Lyon yesterday and we got to hang out a few hours we both head out of France and back to our respective homes. Evidently, we are both anxious about all the frenchy things we are going to miss so we soaked up all the culture we could in our final moments in the City of Lights.

First stop, the Hollywood Expo at the Hotel DeVille.

 En Suite, we headed over to the Swedish institute for some Meatball action. Desormais, they didn´t serve what we were looking for. So we grubbed out on BLTs, grilled cheese, and freedom fries at an American diner instead.

We skipped their peanut butter and chocolate ¨Obama¨ shake, and opted to share an Oreo one instead. You had me at sprinkles. We´ll definitely need some Obamacare after this meal.


 Then we headed over to
for some magical 

 in a genuine Quebecoise photo booth from the 70s. 

WTF, mynew favorite website

Deana Carter - Strawberry Wine

I haven´t gotten a hold of any new good music recently so I´m searching through my old collections. I forgot how into country music I used to be, before country got so bad. Really feel like putting on worn-out jeans and a flannel today.

It was fun while it lasted, Paris.

It´s official! After spending 3 years here, I´ll be out of France in less than a month.

16 ways I blew my marriage

I found this article yesterday about a man who has been through two divorces and had no encouraging words to give to his sister who was about to marry. After some reflection he figured out some of the top reasons his relationships sunk. Get it, relationShip sunk?

2. Don’t stop trying to be attractive
3. Don’t always point out her weaknesses.
4. Don’t stop cooking for her.
5. Don’t yell at your spouse.
6. Don’t call names.
7. Don’t be stingy with your money.
8. Don’t argue in front of the kids.
9. Don’t encourage each other to skip working out
10. Don’t poop with the bathroom door open.
11. Don’t stop kissing her.
12. Don’t stop having fun together.
13. Don’t pressure each other.
14. Don’t label each other with negative labels.
15. Don’t skip out on things that are important to her.
16. Don’t emotionally distance yourself after a fight.     

Check out the follow-up...

ahh, true love.

Feeling so cheesy after this post, maybe this will take me back to normalcy. 

 Major overkill but there were some good ones.

I´m a Mexi-CAN!

9:22  reminds me, why does Sean Bean always die so violently? He did survive Silent Hill.

"I'm tired of Bronco Bamma and Mitt Romney," said the sobbing girl

Game of Thrones opening sung by a cat

I just finished reading Game of Thrones and eventhough I am au courant with the show I couldn´t put the 800+ page book down. Now I have to try to finish the 2nd book, and maybe the third, before the season starts back up.  I still can´t decide if I´m on team Tyrion or team Snow. Tyrion definitely plays a better game but I´m just not sure how long he´s going to hold up now that he´s ousted. However, I think that many readers and watchers would be disappointed to lose him as a primanry character. Also, after some discussion with my uncle and my cousin who have almost finished all the books, I am really interested to see if Sansa and the Hound hook up and if Arya doesn´t try to kill the Hound eventually. I was a big fan of Dany to start with but sometimes she´s so dragon obsessed it annoys me. I know it´s farfetched but I would like to see Jaime Lannister ditch Cersei and get with Cat Stark. It´s so twisted, but Cat is kind of bitch anyways and her sister as well. Speaking of Cat.....

A Lannister always pays his PETS?
