avant paris | 1

i have been doing my research. not only have i been brushing up on my very recoverable (i tell myself) French that i knew so very well in college and high school, but i am also reading ridiculous books about Bringing Our Your Inner French Girl, which by the way, i highly recommend for a good laugh. You too can learn how to tie a scarf a thousand myriad ways and be tres coquette, kitten!

i've also been watching one French film a night - so last night was The Lover, tonight Betty Blue, tomorrow Jules et Jim, and all of course, will be reviewed on for anyone who is interested and cross-referenced here.

have to go now. must practice putting my lips in kissing position to get that fabulous "ewww" sound that sounds so very good when someone else does it. am determined. bonne nuit!
