Who sent me a box o' awesome from Paris including:
A ginormous movie poster of James Dean in Rebel Without A Cause. I actually have a bit of a thing for movie posters from foreign places and used to have some very cool Italian posters for Fritz Lang's Metropolis. How E picked up on this, I have no idea. But James Dean is now occupying one full wall in my bedroom. Thankfully Boyfriend is not the jealous type.
A cloth map of Paris. I haven't figured out where to put it yet, but I can point to where I stayed in the 13th on the map. (Near the Guy Moquet metro station!)
Shopping bags, including one covered in pictures of fromage. It's fromage Grommit! Already put to use, btw.
A couple of French feminism pins that now live on the flap of my Guatemalan Hupjil purse. I'm so international it hurts, baby.
And a copy of the French feminism mag Causette which my language skills are not good enough to translate so I am reading bits online. Must read the article about the Hollywood of Nigeria next.
I am easily bribed, by the way. Send me presents and I write more. And gush profusely about your awesomeness.
