    well i’ve managed to move on…up! buh-bye budget hotel in the 13th. bonjour saint germain! ok, now i really may never leave. tonight, i walked the rues in my new hood and combined my two loves — impromptu photo shoots and street art. thanks to a couple of strangers on the street. one who did the clickin. and the other who did the primpin. and neither of whom took off with my i-touch. thank gawd! altho they did warn me to keep a better eye on my things. if only they knew…last week, a housekeeper returned my most prized possession, my grandmother’s ring, which i inexplicably forgot in my room upon checkout. and yesterday, i found my gloves. right where i left them the night before. “you’re lucky,” said the barman. understatement of the year.
ah, the eiffel has shut off its lights for the night, so perhaps so should i. yup, i got a room with a view…i hate me, too. g’nite bebes!

    rain o shine, i made the most of the past few days. dinner parties. dead animals. dancing. and a memorable encounter with a certain inebriated algerian pop star. what more can you ask for?

    last night, i found the harmonica-playing, fedora-wearing, sensitive singer-songwriter hipstas. i swear i coulda been in brooklyn. but i was right here in paree. in belleville. at a spoken word event. very finger-snapping, boho-bobo cool. altho not everyone had a way with words. spoke to one performer after the show. who unfortunately spoke english. as his first language. so i couldn’t chalk up his repulsive (mis)use of words as a linguistic misunderstanding. nope, this guy knew what he said. and he meant it. EW. it’s funny how you can be a continent away. workin so hard. to try new things. in new places. just to meet the same ole d-bags who are readily available back home. i would like to teach a course to the less-evolved members of the male species on the words you really shouldn’t use around women. at least outside of the boudoir. (i mean really, i think there are only two, right?!) oh, i’m so uptight, i know.

    anotha english speaker insulted my hometown. which i’m sure he’s never even visited. don’t mess with texas, i said! yeah, i really did. i was thisclose to getting onstage and singing the stars at night. are big and bright. clap clap clap clap. deep in the heart of texas! except i guess we would have to substitute snaps for claps in this environment.

    ah well, i can always perform that next week. cuz it goes w/o saying that i’m going back, right? what can i say? it felt like home.

    spent yesterday following a bunch of strangers around my hood. unlike my previous street-stalking missions, this time the people actually knew they were being tailed. the walking tour leader showed us the sights. and my new friend led me to the best of the graffiti…er…street art. gotta love meetup!
