Expat Magazine

// Gregory and I saw Honey Jr and Honey's Honey's doppelgangers walking down the street in my small, Texas town; same hairstyles, same clothing style, and the same petite size... we almost asked them to join us for an apéro, but that would have been weird.
// I don't think I told y'all about Gregory and the baby fox... At the end of last summer, we were returning from dinner and a light show in Avignon. It was after midnight as we drove into the forest outside Le Petit Village, when suddenly, Gregory slammed on the breaks. There was a baby fox in the middle of the road in danger of becoming a snake's dinner. Gregory promptly hopped out of the car and shooed the fox off to the side of the road. He then got back into the car and proceeded to drive over the snake; back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, until we assured him that the baby fox was safe from the flattened snake. Gregory then got back out of the car and started cooing at the fox that was still sitting on the side of the road. He would have taken that thing home with him if he could've but then he could have ended up like this guy.
// My mother and Gregory have taken to playing cards together every afternoon, sometimes it's cute, sometimes it sounds like there is going to be a domestic. She's going to miss him when he's gone.
// There's only seventeen days and counting until Gregory has to go back to France... so that blows.
// When I moved back to the States from France, jet lag got hold of me something fierce, and for a few weeks, me and sleep were BFFs. I'd go to bed by 8PM just about every night, and on one Saturday, at 6:30PM, I stretched and yawned and declared that it was time for me to call it a night. My mother told me that I couldn't possibly go to bed because it wasn't even seven o'clock yet. But then I said that it was DST later that night, so technically it was 7:30, so off to bed I went. I'm such a party animal.
// Gregory and I watched Freaks & Geeks a couple of weeks ago (his first time, my bazillionth). I will be eternally bummed that there wasn't a second season or even a tenth for that matter. But thanks to the glorious internet, I can relive the glory that is Freaks & Geeks whenever the mood strikes me... like now. Enjoy.
