Things I like: proper coffee, dark chocolate with sea salt, Citroën 2CVs, rice paper wrapped spring rolls the way my mother and grandmother from Laos make them, goat cheese, real books written on real paper, Waterloo Dark, the ice cream shop in Moret-sur-Loing, history, Algonquin Park, Vaux le Vicomte, hockey, Canadian hockey players, running, Pemberton.
Things I dislike: bad coffee, MSG, minivans, raw oysters, subdivisions – who can argue effectively when the whole street can hear, cream liquers, biting ants, the histrionics of professional football players (a.k.a. soccer), pink Champagne, the word ‘utilize’.
D is my husband. Bou and Pony Girl (PG) are the resident kids. Sasha and Sidney are our cats and love Juno who is our dog and would love to eat the cats. Also my great-great-great-great-more greats-grandfather was beheaded during the French Revolution. But I’m not bitter.
You won’t find expert opinions here. Only mine. About life and other stuff. Field-tested in a real world where kids don’t always eat their rapini, but make you laugh so hard you snort, where people can be mean or amazingly cool, the dryer conks out without provocation, the dog poops on the floor when she’s stressed, and odd things happen every day.
