Well it’s been all of 5 minutes, so I guess that means it’s time for another post where I weep openly about how much I miss Paris and waaaah, why can’t I be back there right now? One of the cool things about my new phone (of like the 3 things I’ve been able to figure out about it so far) is that I can add a city to my home screen and view time and weather. In addition to Philadelphia, guess which city I chose? Related side-note: it has been raining in Paris for a week straight. And I’m going to pull out a quote from Midnight in Paris on you right now: “Actually, Paris is the most beautiful in the rain.”
So anyway, yes. Paris. Love of my life, light of my soul, potential drain on my wallet. God bless Google Earth, because when I’m not busy staring at any of the thousands of pictures of Paris I have in my own home, I can virtually visit the Eiffel Tower and cry into my lunch at work. This shot below is from Google Earth, taken from the steps of Sacre Coeur. Look at that couple embracing. She looks so happy. In my head their names are Jean-Luc and Sabine, and he just proposed to her. Elle dit “oui.”
Insert whiny lamentations here (also stomach-grumblings because oh my god, Ladurée). My cousin outside of London is getting married in March (British contingent, mark your calendars!), and I’m planning on extending my trip and spending a day or two in Paris before flying home. And by “planning” I mean obsessing wildly and rabidly assuring everyone who will listen.
