A Revolutionary Froggy Snog Blog

August 23rd, 2009 · 11 Comments · Travel, Uncategorized

So, I think we all know from A Tale of Two Cities, that the French Revolution was the worst of times, and that it all started by the storming of the Bastille, the great medieval prison on the right bank in Paris. So I went there today, totally pumped to see the guillotine guys out [...]

In France, French Bread is just called Bread

August 19th, 2009 · 11 Comments · Travel, Uncategorized

Paris: 6:00 AM It’s been years since I’ve seen 6:00 AM from either side of the clock. Let’s face it, it’s too fucking early to get up, unless you’re a fisherman or a soldier, and even then it’s still too early, and it’s too late to be up, unless you’re 20 or snorting meth, and [...]

An American In Paris

August 11th, 2009 · 17 Comments · Travel, Uncategorized

If you haven’t been there, it seems all too romanticized, all very cheesy, existential, bohemian — LaCroix dahling, LaCroix — so so fucking French. If you have been there, you have your own Paris, it’s yours, and believe it or not it is, will always be, better than mine. I just learned this last night. [...]
