vendredi le 25
On Friday, tons of Angélique's friend's and coworkers came over for our soirée. I picked up Alida and brought her to the house where everyone was already beginning to take their before dinner drinks and snacks. I stick with my banana rum and some pretzels and listened in to everyone's conversation... which was broken up into small groups. With a total of 9 people talking at once, I decided to just talk to the two people around me. We shared tons of laughs, and when it started to get dark around 10pm, we ate a barbecue dinner
I had a blast.
I just danced danced danced myself happy with my new French friends
samedi le 26
After forcing myself to get up bright in early, I drove Alida to her job in Quimper, and managed to get lost for 30 minutes before finding my way back home.
The rest of the day I slept in and everyone pretty much lazed about the house. Later on in the evening, we'd be attending the "fête du quartier", neighbourhood party, that is. In the middle of the afternoon I received a call from Alida who managed to get herself in the emergency room after vomiting and passing out from heat exhaustion
dimanche le 27
Nothing to report, really. We all hung around the house doing nothing.
lundi le 28
I finally have made my solid plans for Paris! I'm going this weekend starting Friday and I'll be leaving on Sunday. I've got my train tickets and hotel reservation and I really can't wait!
and finally, today
I went to SuperU to buy some gas when some random guy walks up to me and tries to seduce me. No lie. It was actually pretty funny. He goes "Mais t'es trop charmante, toi." (You're so charming) I smiled, thanked him, and kept walking but he persisted. He starts telling me how cute I am and I start to say "I know.", but I just smile and act bashful. He asks where I'm from and I give him the rundown:
"I'm from the US."
"I'm here for vacation."
and most importantly,
"Yes, I have a boyfriend."
He seems undeterred. He tells me he's from Paris and he's on vacation here, too. He goes on to say that he has a vacation house in Ile-Tudy (next to Bénodet) with a pool and I am more than welcome to visit. I decline and remind him once more that I do have a boyfriend
Apparently the cashier at the SuperU station had gone to lunch or whatever, so I decided to just drive to Quimper and buy gas at Géant. After that, I ate in this crêperie I had always wanted to try. Honestly, I've had better. I ordered a crêpe with cheese, mushrooms and ham. When they served it, it was saturated in butter. It was just okay, and that's all I can really say. After my meal, I loitered around in the supermarket and ended up buying a cd by Stromae, a really awesome Belgian artist that EVERYONE should check out in their life. After that, I headed home and here I am now.
I'm in the process of making plans to see Emilie, my friend from Nantes next Sunday so I hope I will have an interesting story to tell about that later. For now, expect the next entry to be about my weekend à Paris!
Bisous, my friends!
