You are now amongst the few people in history ever to apologise for visiting Paris.

Indeed. In fact, Paris should apologise to you.

 

Admittedly, it has been about 28 years since I was there. God I hated that place. It stank. There was dog poo EVERYWHERE. The arrogance was overwhelming for an 8 yr old. The final straw was the owner of the B&B.. "It's pronounced MAH-DAAAAAAM". "OK. MAH-DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMM" Got the shits with her and walked away and avoided her.

 

The *only* decen thing that happened there was getting a hot-dog. It was served on a french stick. It required 2 hotdogs to fill it. That was kinda cool.

 

Rest was crap.

------------------

Otherwise.. Maybe for Meet.

Was in Paris about 9 years ago. The only arrogant french person I encountered was at a train station.

 

We (my wife and I) stayed in an apartment rented out by a gay couple who owned the florist across the laneway, right in the middle of the city, who were totally fucking awesome.

 

Tried to do the courtesy of attempting some french and that seemed to be enough for the most part. Ate cheese, drank amazing wine and after spending 2 weeks previously visiting every fucking cathedral in Italy, really not caring about Notre Dame I ended up experiencing flash backs to dozens of games which clearly took cues from this gothic awesomeness of a church. This church also made me buy my first DSLR.

 

I went expecting Paris to be shit - turned out it was a highlight of the trip to Europe.

 

Enjoy your trip Cheeky.

The evils of the world.

July 12 is a convergence of various realities;

  • This event that I want to go to.
  • A wedding that I have to go to.
  • Dad's birthday that we'll all deny.

I guess I can say I'll be on free beer for the night at least.

Sadly I'm going to have to bow out due to a medical condition that's going to prevent me from flying for most of the rest of the year. One perforated eardrum is bad enough that my ENT thinks risking another one is probably a bad idea.

 

I was really looking forward to this year too. Fuck it. I'm going to the pub.

So... did this happen?

 

I work in the CBD. Had no idea. Been ages since I looked here. Didn't think of it until I saw Vanna and Mr Friendly mid-week.

Crap, completely forgot about this one. Mind you, I was sick as a dog for the entire week, so I wouldn't have made it otherwise.

Sorry guys.

 

As some know, I've been quite ill recently and wasn't able to keep this one going.

 

Will try again next time Nich is in Aus. Need more meetage!

Paris was absolutely amazing btw. It was one of the highlights of my euro trip! Loved it, we went to the top of the Arc de Triumph and watched the crazy traffic below, went to the top of the Eiffel Tower, had a night at the Moulin Rouge and shopped the Champs Élysées, including a macaron stop at Laduree to name a few things. Ahhh, I can't wait to go back.

 

Didn't encounter any rude French locals personally. I was in Europe with a bunch of friends though, and one of the guys i know picked up this local French girl at a bar we were at, she seemed quite nice but at the end of the night she wanted to sue him! He called her a taxi to pick her up from our hotel, she hopped in said goodbye and assumed he had pre paid for the trip, and when she got home, the taxi driver asked her pay as normal. So she wasn't happy, told the taxi driver to go straight back to our hotel and she came back demanding that he pay and threatened to sue him.

 

We were all like woooooow.

heheh. The funny thing for me with your Paris trip:

I saw yours and Juggs posting from the arc on Facebook (Saw from Nic's login)

Then.. I got an email from my dad. Included? Picture of him and his partner at the arc...

THEN

Nic had a work friend post a picture of the Arc.

 

WTF?!?! Seriously.

 

Yeah.. Timing. You may have bumped into my dad on tour. :P
