Il pardonnera ses caprices jusqu'en soixante-dix

When I went to get my hair cut this week, I talked to the hair-cutting lady about how I felt like I was betraying my usual hair-cutting lady by going to her. She said she doesn't mind when people do that, and that the customers often get really worked up about it and it's all business to the hair-cutting ladies.

Was this comforting? It really should have been, but I have this terrible over-dramatic streak that decided she was only telling me this in order to keep me from feeling guilty and lure me away from the usual one. Scheming tricksy hair-cutting lady.

While talking about my studies of French and my life in France, I also learned from her that Mick Harvey of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds released an album called Intoxicated Man, where he translated sixteen of Serge Gainsbourg's songs into English. This would make a really great Veterans' Day present. You know, for... somebody.

Yes, because people always buy Veteran's Day presents for people.

I get Veteran's Day presents every year.

Of course, my birthday is on Veteran's Day. So that might explain it.

Thanksgiving.

gravatar katie - October 27, 2003 - 1:47 PM -

When is Ramadan, anyway?

Starts today, I think. How about Birth of Baha'u'llah?
