No Konfell, I'm afraid I haven't learned it by heart yet. But I did get to sing it tonight, in the midst of a happy crowd, in a rather early Bastille Day celebration. Oh! the food we had for our anniversary celebration (8 years yesterday!) - mussels (no sand) to die for, brie, canard - with a luscious cherry-orange sauce - and oh, the cake. Carbs be damned. And don't forget the chateauneuf du pape. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

We kept the waiter quite amused with our arguments - does "up" equal "north"? Is the Bastille above or below ground? Is this frisee or escarolle? Are you only an intellectual if you have financial backing - otherwise you're a revolutionary? Did she have 3 glasses of wine or four? He dutifully checked the answer to each. It was a draw by evenings end.

And given the fact that the evening finally did end with a walk to Cafe Felix and a Brett-poured martini, I think I'm doing fairly well. We'll see how I feel in the morning.


K - just how much is a flight from Paris to Madrid??
