Well! My vacation has not been incredibly exciting, especially since I’ve had the flu since Thursday. Eugh.
Before being knocked out by this seemingly endless fever, I did manage to apply for my French passport. I did have a bizarre argument with the agent about whether or not my French birth certificate (not present at the appointment) was a simple translation of the American one. But otherwise it was uneventful and should be here in around two weeks.
I also started a bullet journal, and though I filled it out furiously during the first few days, being sick has reduced my activity. So I can’t yet say whether it’s a success or not.
The website buymeonce.com has intrigued me, especially for my brother who seems ready to never buy new clothes again ever in his life—though as for Le Creuset, I would have bought some by now anyway if I could afford it!
This video of the UK and Ireland in accents was pretty fascinating, though I wish he’d gone a little more into Ireland.
J and I have been watching the new series Trepalium on Arte. I should really say watched, because in true French fashion, they put out three episodes at a time. For a series that only has six episodes, I REALLY don’t see the point. We haven’t caught up on the final episode yet though because three hours in a row of a TV show just starts to feel like a movie. (DUH.)
Finally, maybe everyone was aware of this but me, but Paris is expanding the metro.
