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

oh snap - forgot, but will and i are going to see jane-freaking-birkin in concert in about a week and a half!! most of the entertainment stuff here strikes me as a bit busted, but at least we get to see one of my own personal legends perform!

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.

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!
