Breaking News!

Dear reading public, you've  been misled.  You'll note that at the bottom of this post it says that Jon and Amy are here in absentia.  False.  Present.  I (Amy) am very much here.  Or as EB just said "the inmates are in charge."  I think I'd prefer something more along the lines of "student becomes teacher."  

But Amy, why are you blogging, you ask?  Well, let me count the ways (er, reasons):
1.  I am unemployed.  Yes my numbering is in order of importance.  If you are reading, in Los Angeles, and interested in paying me to do something other than be a litigation associate, it's great to meet you and I would love to buy you lunch and I'm a quick learner with a real appetite for reading for pleasure.  Surely these things qualify me for something.
2.  I am jealous of EBs and Josh and their adventure part deux.  Uncontrollably jealous/envious/furious.
3.  I will also be traveling in the next two weeks, and though I won't be in Asia, I will be in a former colonial power, and who doesn't love a little mercantilism humor.
3a.  If you're now wondering who is to blame for giving me the password to the blog, it was EB.  
4.  This is mostly just a challenge to Jon to write something hilarious for our benefit.  See that, readers?  I'm here to help.

On Saturday, Matt and I leave for 10 days in France: first attending the wedding of our friends in Burgundy, and then wandering around Paris for a few days on a belated honeymoon of sorts.  EB taught me some french while we were stuck in traffic yesterday, so I'm feeling pretty confident we'll have no trouble at all.  I can now say:
-"give me that croissant"
-"I adore wine"
-"I adore you"
-"two coffees please, thank you"
-"where is the Louvre"

I dare you to think of any other truly essential phrase.  Let the adventure(s) begin.

How do you say "A love of life, and a Life of Love" in Francais?
