This Week

Downloaded And Listening To: Songbird, Bernard Fanning ("I wish I knew which button to push, then I'd know how to please you, it's sad but true" - love it).
Still Reading: A Cook's Tour, Anthony Bourdain - I love this book a bit too much.
Had A Drink With: An old mutual crush. He told me I was a femme fatale, what with my attitude, dark hair and desire to again buy leather pants this winter (sidenote: it's fum fatale, not fem fatale. Just like eight is not ai-g-h-t or police is not po-lice). I used to think of myself as a femme fatale, in that I got a kick out of making men obsessed with me and then losing interest . After being with a man who was the opposite, treat 'em mean keep 'em keen, I think I (mostly) lost this sixth sense. So it was nice to be reminded of it, nice to think there was still some of that old-school Julia still in me.

I should really get Bourdain's book. On Paris -
I was also planning to do the galliera museum of fashion. they don't have a website
but this site http://www.paris.fr/portail/Culture/Portal.lut?page_id=5854 has everything & a lot on all the other museums as well. Are you doing Paris au clair de lune along paris cinema ?

Leather pants. Buy them while your in Florence! The leather will be so smooth and buttery to touch... Is your mum still going at that time? You'll need a second opinion (like the skinny jeans)

I'm in Paris 30 June to 5 July so I won't make the Cinema au Clair de Lune but I will catch the exposition sur le defile at the Musee Galliera, can't wait!

Mum was never going over to Florence this year - I never liked the leather markets there, but I'll keep my eyes open for them at The Mall.

Oops... I thought that's why you were both learning Italian?

Nope, just because she's always wanted to relearn after living there for two years, and because it's a nice thing to do together.
