jolie laide

I started this when I lived in Brooklyn and struggled for grace in a city that grants moments of beauty and ugliness breathtakingly close to one another. Now I live in a place where things are a different kind of ugly and the beauty is pedestrian. I struggle with that.

Actually, the sad thing I realized while stuck in Paris overnight (which sounds glamorous, but I was in an "Express by Holiday Inn") was that I had fucked up the French. Should be L'homme Plus," non?

Eh. Whatever.

dude, you are in France? sounds glamorous as hell to me. I never even been to Paris, TX.

Yeah, it's l'homme. I forgive you as you are closer to being busted by a real live frog than I can imagine.

what are you doing there? what have you seen?

I was passing through Paris on my way home from a work thing in Italy. (God, this sounds like glamour, but only to those who don't have to do the work.) Missed a connection; got put up overnight; drank beer and read a book and went to sleep early.

And now am home.

Woo! Eight days away is sometimes too long.
