USA | Wednesday, 13 Jun 2007 | Views [1088]

  I took a sip of my hip mojito—way too much “jito”, not enough “mo”—so I walk over to the lower level bar to ask for mo “mo” and get hit like lightning with a look from the soap opera good looks bearing bartender that completely left me standing there ... Read more >

USA | Sunday, 10 Jun 2007 | Views [1231] | Comments [2]

Well, my first day in Paris was nothing short of "interesting". I arrived in Paris Monday night and hadn't slept since Saturday evening, so "rested" I was far from, and I looked every step of a 2 day old woken marathon. Charlotte ... Read more >

I just really have a couple of things to say about this concert: 1) Should I ever decide to marry for a third time, it will be to no one else other than Billy Corgan. I think I came three times watching him play the guitar. and 2) Should I ever ... Read more >

It's the 6th day of my trip. I'm staying in Brussels, Belgium this weekend with Charlotte and her family. We arrived late last night to one of the warmest welcomes I have had in a long time. I felt like a member of the family being received after ... Read more >

I'm sitting on a subway on my way to the Saint Michel stop, taking in my surroundings and aside from the heat, this is one of my favorite Parisian experiences. I guess because watching and understanding people is one of my passions--but also because ... Read more >

Charlotte and I just came back from our tour of downtown Brussels. I have to say that while I was excited about coming to Belgium to visit Charlotte's home and family, I never expected to enjoy Brussels as much as I have. The architecture is AMAZING!! ... Read more >

It's Monday, May 28th and it's the last day of my stay here with Charlotte's family. I woke up with that "hole" in my stomach feeling to know that I would be leaving them this afternoon. One of the things that I love most in my life is my ... Read more >
