Paris Blues

I'm suffering the old Paris blues and I'm thinking maybe I follow too many blogs on France. I search them out, and then I'm miserable because I'm not there right now.  I guess 'ignorance is bliss' as the saying goes, but still.....I keep reading, following and befriending. How come there are so many people from around the world who manage to go to Paris, and just stay there?  How come every time we go we have return tickets?  Answer me that!

For all you people blogging from Paris.....I hope you realize that your posts are a lot easier to write than for us regular people living regular lives in regular cities. All you have to do is poke your head out the window et voila....you have something interesting to report that we all want to read.  When I poke my head out the window, it either gets covered in snow or hits the brick wall next door.  So.....I don't want to read anything negative about your life in Paris.  You'll get no sympathy from me!

Let's see......what can I tell you today?  Well, Christmas decorations are going up at a great pace in Montreal. Everyone wants to get them up before a big freeze or storm.  I know I know.  Galeries Lafayette is looking glorious and you're waiting for the lighting of the Champs Elysées.  (I'm not bitter I tell you - it just sounds that way).

Ah yes, I remember it well!

I'm sorry about this.  It's just been a hard week and I've just now had time to catch up on on the French posts.  I guess I shouldn't read them all at once.  It's like getting your favourite huge cake, and scarfing it down all in one sitting.  It's bound to come back and make you feel bad (in a good sort of way).
