Girly Post

Okay, I gotta say this – I HATE the US consulate!!!! We were there today for a freaking piece of paper and spent fucking 2.5 hours there, went through 2 security check, one of which included my i-river, cell and hubby's belt being confiscated and the other including my handbag going through an x-ray machine and the guy spending 5 minutes looking at the x-ray at my sunglasses wondering if their part of a pipe bomb!!! Why couldn’t he just ask to look in the fucking bag?!?!? We waited at 3 different queues and had to pay $30 just to get a piece of paper!!!! Anyway, we got the document and I hate bureaucracy.

Nothing a little shoe shopping can’t fix. It’s SO hot today fucking 35c (95f) and I had winter shoes on coz my mules fell apart at the end of the summer last year. I needed new ones desperately. So I got these, they are so comfortable I feel like I’m wearing slippers!



As long as we’re on the subject here is a picture of the handbag I got a few weeks ago. With the plant hubby gave me for work in the back.


And check it out!!! My lillies are out!!! I’m so proud of myself!





Okay enough of the girly stuff, back to my old self.

Pretty pretties :) And I love the Lillies? It looks similar to an Iris, and they're coming out here. They are my absolute favorite flower in the world. Well, OK, and I love Peonies. They'll be out soon!

Sorry about teh hassle, but at least now you're done :)

I have a love/hate thing with irises. One time, I was 8, I picked an Iris out of an old lady's front yard. That old bat called the sheriff on me and told him that I had stolen from her. So, here is the sheriff at my house telling my Dad about how I had stolen some flower out of this 900 year old woman's yard. Give me a break. So everytime I see an Iris, I think of that. They are pretty though....


At any rate...love the shoes!!!! They look super comfy!!! And...yes, american government entities suck world wide.

Jess – I didn’t notice that…

NV – Iris – right! And I LOVE peonies too!!! I’m not done yet, tomorrow I go to the French consulate, but they’re a lot better there, no paranoia!

Debbie – thank you!

Pook – sorry, that bitch! I can’t believe someone would do that to an 8 year old!!! Irises are protected here so you can pick them.

Jen – I’m trying to declare my marriage in France so that our kids (that we’re not even thinking of having yet) get French citizenship right away… I need a bunch of pointless documents…

Liz – back off! I’m allowed to be girly once in a while…

Yes, my peonies shall be blooming any day now. Yay! SMF picked me some a few irises yesterday. Awwwww. Out of his yard, no one was arrested or got yelled at. Hee Hee.

I'm totally about he matchy matchy, Sarah, so that's what I would notice.
