This week has definitely been an interesting and fun one if you live in the New York City area. With that said, here is what I am in amour with this week. Oh and just in case you do not know, Jeudi is Thursday in French.
~~Studying French! I have changed my cell phone and computer to French and it helps. Trying to immerse myself as much as I can in the language.
~~Game night with the NYC Geek Girl Adventure Club. Even though there was a horrendous and disaster filled storm yesterday, 9 of us (myself included) braved it to Argo Tea Cafe and played some Apples to Apples and had the biggest laughs and fun ever. I want to play again!
~~My new water shoes for when I go swimming.
~~Side pony twists in my hair.
~~This video, especially at 2:52 and 3:21
What are you in amour with this week?

Paris, France. 2003. No A/C. Just a fan and a shower. I survived.
That immediately shuts people up. I did meet a girl outside of the theater who claims to have seen Spiderman the musical 107 times. Well that is 106 times too many in my opinion. After the play, I did my best speed walk to the subway then to the PATH in 95 degree weather at 1040pm and I was home by 1130pm in my arctic tundra of a room.
Saturday, which was not as bad as Friday, David and I went to the New York Public Library -- Main Branch (like I need anymore books...) to hang out with the stacks and view some artifacts as well as say hello to Patience and Fortitude Le Relais de Venise L'Entrecote. Yay opportunity to practice my French! I had a voucher from Gilt City which was a steak frites dinner for two. That is all they serve -- Start with a green salad with mustard vinaigrette topped with walnuts, followed by steak frites but they do welcome vegetarians where you will start with a green salad with mustard vinaigrette topped with walnuts, followed by a selection of cheeses and accompanied by frites plus a dessert of your choice. Dinner is $25.95 per person but with my voucher I got dinner for two for $31 dollars. Savings! While the food is decent, I wish I was able to practice more French but most of the waitstaff did not speak fluently. It is all good. Maybe I will go back to Tartinery,,,,
Tomorrow my brother and I are off to see Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper in the Prudential Center located in Newark, NJ. Can not wait! Thank you to my knees -- Stubborn and Jealous -- for healing so I can enjoy my life again in not so much pain.
How was your weekend?
