overheard over the holiday

(or four opening lines, in search of a story)

"Of course, you've heard the story of the New Orleans Fern Society, haven't you?"
(John's friend to a rapt audience)



"Oh, you should have just seen her corpse. Who ever did it did a beautiful job.
(My mother to me, over Christmas dinner.)


"His mother was a world champion bridge player. She played with Omar Sharif...and Eva Peron."
(John over pizza last night)

"Oh no indeed. Weave is the devil's horsetail.  I do not believe in all that."
(woman in Dollar Tree to friend)

les femmes de Paris

This bitch



Screw the Mona Lisa. This glamorous creature at the airport has it all over the her.
Sorry for the bad photo, I think her frosted eyeshadow caused my flash to glare.


Sarah Bernhart.
(Sadly we couldn't find Sandra Bernhard's tomb. Dommage).



Poor dear Edith




the Nike of Samothrace.


(Of course I had to recreate this scene from "Funny Face" in my head, saying "take the piktcha!, take the piktcha!"
but alas, no one got it.
sigh)


the Venus de Milo

the Femme de Psycho


Real life geisha on the Champs-√Člys√©es.


I aspire to be her one day.



None other than Carine Roitfeld at a movie premiere! Carlos and I both squealed with elation on seeing her. We tried to explain, but the other two didn't know. I felt extra gay.Ran into Cathy on the Seine.
So gracious.

Merry Karlmas

While in Paris, we saw that the Christmas windows at Printemps were up....








And nothing's more festive than swarms of little Karl Lagerfeld marionettes,

Right?

Paris Romance

My new lover (Diet Coke's chicer Parisienne cousine) and I in Paris.

Where we first met, with crepes, behind Notre Dame.
It was love at first kiss.


Coke Light au Louvre.

Coke Light, gazing down at Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower (5 euros! expensive bitch)

Coke Light at Versailles (she dressed in low heels for the occasion)



At Pere Lachaise


Oops. How'd that get in here?!
It was just one time, darling.
It meant nothing, I swear!!!!
