Where in the world did today go? I was going to write a nice, thoughtful post for y’all, but between finally noticing that I only have 30 minutes to change planes in D.C. to make our flight for Paris and finding out some but — as — notveryniceword creepy agency decided to put some other Patty White’s unpaid bill on my credit report, which takes umpteen phone calls to protest and start undoing, plus the mandatory complaint I made to the FTC just because it ruined my zen for the day, I did not get a nice or thoughtful post written. It’s 8 p.m. at night, and I’m finally packed and ready to go. Some of you might point out that that happens frequently, and I would be the first to agree.
We’re off to Paris with my youngest son, my sister and niece. My sister and niece have never been before, and they are completely freaked out that we may not make that connection in D.C., leaving her to navigate he Paris airport to the hotel on her own for 24 hours. Taking pity on her, we’re going to go to the airport about 6 hours early and try to standby for an earlier flight.
What I’m most looking forward to sniffing is hopefully the new vanilla Hermessence. Not sure if it’s out yet, but we’ll sure go look. And that new Serge, is it the cellophane thing? I haven’t heard the actual date of release for it, but will definitelly take a peak at that. Anything anyone wants me to sniff or that I should hunt down while I’m there? Besides plenty of macaroons and a couple of cute little hats. I’ll be able to check in at different points this week.
Can we talk briefly about The Bachelor? This is the first time they’ve had a bachelor that seems like a pretty great guy. Every season, this stupid show sucks me in, to my bitter regret, much like American Idol. I get emotionally attached to these media whores and just want to kick myself for watching the first episode. Am I the only one that does that?
Oh! Almost forgot. It looks like March and I will be heading to L.A. in March’ish. We’ll know dates in the next couple of weeks, but if you’re in the area or have been wanting a trip there or have ideas on can’t-miss visits, beyond the usual suspects, we’re all ears!
