// If you have a child in France, have been a child in France, or know a French child, then you know Sophie the Giraffe. All French kids know Sophie, she’s basically an extra cute chew toy for babies (even La Petite had one). Well a couple of weeks ago I had a dream that Sophie was real. It was one of those dreams that you want to go on and on but the downside is, now I really want a pet giraffe.
// Gregory went to the grocery store on his own. Before he left, I had given him a small list and had gone over every item with him so there wouldn’t be any confusion (do you remember the celery incident?) and yet he still managed to phone me with questions six times. The last time he phoned he said, “Baby, don’t be mad. I bought horse meat.” There is currently horse meat in my freezer (that if he wants to eat he will be cooking himself because I’m not serving up My Little Pony). And no, it most definitely was not on the list.
// We’re on the cusp of Autumn here in The LPV. It’s still warm but there is definitely a crispness to the air that has been blowing through my windows and I can’t say that I hate it. Hunting season has commenced, Halloween costumes have been discussed and I’ve made the switch from Rosé to Red (my true end of summer indicator).
// Remember how I told you a couple of months ago that we were watching every episode of The Sopranos from the beginning in honor of the late great James Gandolfini? We finished this past week. Finishing boxsets always makes me a tad sad, so it was nice to tune into the new season of Sons of Anarchy the next day and see Adriana alive and well in the town of Charming. Of course in Charming she’s not Adriana, she’s Wendy, but it doesn’t matter, she’s still dynamite. (Drea de Matteo is pretty much my favorite actress ever) and then the next night, we watched an episode of The Mindy Project and she was on that too! I think she might be stalking me.
// Now I can’t mention Sons of Anarchy without mentioning the Fifty Shades of Grey casting and the fact that Jax Teller is going to be playing Christian Gray. My freak out level was so off the chart with this one it was embarrassing. Minutes after reading the news, I posted this on my Facebook page; “OMG OMG OMG… It’s like all of my birthdays and Christmases have been rolled up, covered in Valentines Day chocolate, stuck in a firecracker, shot off on the 4th of July and filmed so I can watch it again on Thanksgiving!” Told you I dorked out.
// We’re enjoying some quiet time at home this weekend (next weekend we’re in Toulon and the one after that Avignon). Last night I made Spaghetti all’Amatriciana and we vegged out and watched Ab Fab and we don’t have anything else to do all weekend but relax and meet up with Honey Jr and Honey’s Honey for a drink. Oh, and I’m making this for Sunday lunch tomorrow. Nice and lazy, just how I like it. So what about you mes amies… relaxing one at home or are you out and about?
