The Baroness & Baron at Les Deux Moulins

One more sleep and this will be Madelle et Monsieur von Bloggenschtern:

(For those of you who have yet to see "Amelie"
- one of my absolute favorites - you'll know what this means.

For the others, get thee to a video store...)

*M.F. (Melodramatic Footnote) - I do apologize to those of you out there who think I might be gloating a little. I'm really not intending to come off that way - I'm just so exTREMEly excited I could pee the noble knickers.

One of my dreams has always been to go to Paris, and drink coffee at a small cafe on Le Rive Gauche. When I was sick a couple of years ago, at least a tiny bit of my sadness was knowing that this fantasy could possibly not become a reality.

But, thanks to the efforts and hard work of my CFO and partner-in-crime, it's all happening. 'Tis like living a dream. I love him already, but this trip is making me fall in love with him all over again. Ahhh.

You guys have worked hard for this trip, so enjoy yourselves!

My dream trip would be to sit at a table and watch hackers tee it up at St. Andrews in Scotland. Or perhaps a seaside beverage on the island of Iona.

Probably not until I'm old and wrinkly . . .

Safe travels...I cannot wait to hear all about it!

Baroness von Bloggenschtern said...

Countess MPM: I've got my notebook, so will fit in observances in between croissants and daubes.

Countess iPost: I shan't gloat. What I promise is some humour from a broad...

(how do you say "stamps" in Belgian?)

Countess Stacy: Thanks so much! Although I'm not a drinker, rest assured I will be having coffee EVERYWHERE, beer in Bruges, and champagne in champagne!

Have a lovely trip Baronness! You certainly deserve it!

I hope you will think of me whenever you see chocolate! And I wouldn't mind having a pic of you enjoying Bruges (the rear view if you please... to add to my collection!)

Countess NATUI: Thank you! Hugs back to you, babe.

Countess AG: As for the photo, I do believe that I can make this happen. I had some dark chocolate today, with mon deca (decaf)shot, as a matter of fact, and strangely enough - you came to mind. I have seen much chocolate in our short time here - between that and digusting looking cheese (that even a mouse would barf at), that apppears to be all these people are truly crazy for...
