I’m an American. I’ve moved to Paris to work online at the ripe age of — I’m still young ;)

An ode to geeks around the world

I have no idea where this came from but I felt a need to express my unrealized dream of becoming Neo. Thank you, dear Wachowski brothers.
You have made my geekness come true.

How to get rid of stuff you never wanted

We all get gifts we never actually wanted. While they’re super awesome and I’m sure we’re all thrilled to get them and wouldn’t want to be ungrateful lest we be spite down and come back as a cockroach in the next life, Parisians have found another solution…

How to get rich quick (kind of) in Paris

I’ve discovered the secret :

I’m baaaaaaaack – – and I’ve missed you.

After a bit of time off for vacation, soul-searching, yoga-ing, and a week in Hawaii for my brother’s vacation, it’s back to real life
Which means 800 unread emails
But also back to fun fun fun videos and other projects :

If you’re interested in another project I’ve been working on with some friends, it’s coming soon here, and you can already follow us on Twitter and join us on Facebook for when the fun really starts next week 😉

Otherwise I’m on Facebook here

And check back tomorrow for a good idea for anyone that’s ever travelled. If you’re here, that’s probably you.

Happy Monday 🙂

Right! Sorry about the Internet situation, it’s…not yet resolved but HEY I have a code to get WiFi from the street so…. it’s kinda good 😉

This week for some reason I was thinking about all of the hand gestures that have saved me and that I just find super amusing. French people are super.

Awesomeness.

AND HAPPY BASTILLE DAY!

Moving day magic trick

I had an idea for a great surprise but got sidetracked bundling up all my raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens into brown paper packages tied up with strings…

And wish it could have been as easy as in the Sword in the Stone…

BUT if you’ve been watching for a while, you might know that I’m not one that was used to living in Paris apartements that are (by definition)…not incredibly spacious. SO!

A new decor does a body good

And WILL be new and fabulous and wonderful and amazing and actually I have no idea because moving day is Tuesday.

TBA!!!

Have a great week and in the meantime check out some videos from Jenna, Hugo, Craigery, or Norman 😀
