X-Mas in Paris

So Christmas was nice, but I was exausted! I worked a lot the weekd before St-Nick day. I celebrated half awake at Julien,s parent's just outside of Paris, in Osny. We had the réveillon, a good meal consisting of a lot of seafood and foie gras. The next day was more foie gras with scallops(seafood again). On the 25th at night, Marylou and I had Julien and Aurélie over with ML's dad ans a new friend of mine who is in Paris for a few months Alexia, a Montréalaise. It was a nice closing meal, with ONCE AGAIN foie gras(!), and some magret de canard. So I guess it's common for the french to have foie gras... oh and smoked salmon was also popular. It was all good! It wasn't family, but almost. I can say I have few real friends in Paris, but they are great. The next day was a classic movie day after christmas with the roomate, it was great. And now back to work. Festivities again later this week, going to ML's friend cottage to celebrate the upcomming new year. Jolly.

Good to read you were not alone. Good to know you have real good friends, and your « almost » family took you as one of them.
Few real good friends are worth MUCH more than a lot of parasites who dare call themselves friends.

Sounds like a good time. Wait, do you actually have a lot of parasites who dare call themselves friends, or was that just like a cautionary remark by pappidou?

Happy New Year?
