My French 4th of July

While everyone was going out after work for burgers and bbq on the 4th, I was sick.  In a fit of patriotism, I thought I'd at least celebrate by having watermelon!

I felt horrible and didn't want to go far, plus I was coming home from a 12 hour work day...so I got this tiny container of fruit from the Chinese place downstairs. 

It may have been the most overpriced fruit I've ever seen at around $6 (averaging $1 per fruit chunk), but at least I got a high quality fork. 

Please try to contain your jealousy.  Happy 4th of July!!

Back From the Dead + Time Travel

I’m alive.
One can hardly believe it.  I’ve come to the momentous realization that I can’t update a blog without an internet connection.  Fascinating, I know.  I’ll explain this phenomenon later.

Short and Sweet
I’ve also come to realize that if I want to update this thing, I have to keep it short and sweet.  I like telling stories, but it takes too long, I put it off, and now it's almost September and this thing has cobwebs on it.  So from now on, I’m aiming for little snapshots.

Time Travel
There is an amazing coffee shop close to where I live called Coutume, and they have a 24-hour cold drip extrapolator device that my friends and I suspect is actually used for time travel:

And that’s what I’m going to use.  

July and August were two pretty amazing months, and I refuse to pretend they didn’t happen.  I REFUSE!!  I want July & August in my little Paris journal documentary story blog for myself, and I’m going to give them July & August dates as if I had actually kept up.  Let’s all just pretend.

So to recap, my goals are thus:
1. Update blog.
2. Short & sweet.
3. Coffee maker time travel.

Set the dials to July, here we go.
