oh, and if you're in paris..

check this out for me - this weekend!


economics = big brains.

as you can see by how much my cranium has increased in breadth and width, economics has been feeding my brain.

this picture in class is proof enough, no?

brown paper packages tied up with string.

today i got a package in the mail from krissy!! my first piece of mail since i arrived in this strange land. so she wins the prize for ruling my universe for the day.

inside: 1 package of balloons (note: will be used to celebrate my long-awaited arrival to the new flat in cap d'ail!), 1 plastic rib tip (think: fred flintstone's dinner) to put on the end of my pencil, 1 6-pack of moustaches (thank god - i only brought one pack with me, so i'd be sure to run out before the year was through!) and 1 lovely card with deer prancing on it.

basically, it really picked me up after this piece-of-work-weekend i've had. amazing, kris! you successfully:
a) reminded me of home
b) made me recall good memories
c) made me feel warm & fuzzy

love you!!

news flash: yachts are big.

okay, as per leah's request, i've been asked to go into a bit more detail with my posts. so, here goes:

last night, we went down to port hercules to check out the yacht show. it's your basic tradeshow, but filled with uber-rich, poorly dressed europeans and a decent amount of fake boobs. didn't exactly fit in, but whatevs - we had passes.

it was pretty beautiful, but a bunch of tired-ass students rolling into that scene was pretty funny - at least it was happy hour. glasses of rose for 2 euros!! we walked up this pretty cobblestone street and had some pretty decent thai food too. unfortunately, today we are double booked for class - finance in the morning (and seeing as i've been reading the wrong text book.. i have some catching up to do), and marketing this afternoon. i've been chosen to present a case study for my group on the fashion channel, and hoping that homeboy doesn't call on me. we're ready, but good gravy, i hate speaking in front of my class. yipes.

oh yea, these are my homies: tatiana, dorothy and will.

fops & dandies.

sorry for the hiatus there, dear readers. it's been a crazy month. my dear friends, amelia and emma, threw me a going away party just before i left vancouver. it was a great-gatsby-inspired end-of-summer picnic in strathcona park, and it couldn't have been a lovelier afternoon.

thanks to everyone that showed! france, here i come!
