Trading in a fiddle for a harp... for a bathroom

I will never again claim to have Internet access or a bathroom, because something fucking always goes wrong.

The latest session of musicians to move in includes two harpists, and one of them is using the bedroom connected to my bathroom as a practice room. It was kind of nice, because I always ended up showering to harp music. It's certainly better than lunching to scratchy violins.

Last night, I was in the bathroom when Caroline came to collect the last of her stuff and then I went upstairs, forgetting that she didn't have a key anymore to lock it when she was done.

This morning, I was accosted by one of the directors of the group, who demanded that I turn my key into the office because someone had come in in the middle of the night and "touched" the harp. I don't know what that means. Is it covered in fingerprints? Or am I going to have to pay for some kind of damages done to the harp? Why a harp, of all things, the most expensive of all musical instruments?

I have no bathroom again (at least until the 16th), but this time, there's no one to blame but myself (well, and the fucking harp-touchers, but we'll never know who they are and it was my responsibility to lock the door anyway). I might move in with the other interns or sleep on Caroline's couch or just trek somewhere else for showers or something... I don't know what I'm going to do, because I've just been crying for about an hour now and haven't been capable of rational thought yet.

What is the problem of everyone there? Does America empty out its worst people into your part of France?

Violence is the answer!

These ones are French, actually. Being yelled at in French is even worse than English, because it's harder to argue back!

I was probably sitting in the office five minutes away from you when you took that picture.

Whoops! Wrong post to comment on. I refer to the Jardin de Tuileries photo on the left, there.

I think it's from 2003... from when my parents visited in February. Could be from our summer trip two years before, though! Or any one of a number of other times I've been to the JdT...

I think it was a perfectly acceptable post to comment on. Although it would be fun if the pictures had their own comments!

Bastards! You should just go off in a tirade of English and show em' how it feels.

Or take it out on a poor unsuspecting anglophone.

:( I'm sorry, precious! We should have sent you a bathroom in your care package! Ridiculous...
