i saw paris, je t’aime and it is good. very good. so good that i need to watch it again very soon. in fact i think it needs to be watched a few times. twenty, five-minute films in the twenty neighborhoods of paris. some humorous, sad, touching – all intriguing. next up is jean de fleurette and following that avenue montaigne. perhaps some wine and french cheese are in order…check and check.
good food and drink are in store for the next few days. my parents drove into town today. omar showed off his culinary skills tonight (close-roasted pork with ancho, cinnamon and cocoa). i tried to pawn off the remainder of my vosges mo’s bacon bar on them. it sounded like a good combination: chocolate, salt, and bacon. i know, i know. some of you are probably thinking i was crazy. but seriously, they are three of my favorite foods. evidently just not together. i’m noticing there are still a few pieces left so i guess my dad didn’t go for it, either.
elisha is enjoying his start to the weekend: romping around the bed with papi and asher, the arrival of the grandparents, and chocolate fashion. a good start.
