  1. I'm going to be very, very nice. Just let them know it is frustrating. I get that they are also probably short handed thanks to ongoing COVID issues.
  2. Wore my Astros shirt while touring Montmartre. Got stopped by a woman on the metro platform from Houston saying, "Go Astros." So Montmartre is a lot of fun. Will put more up later, but yeah.
  3. I'm in Reims Thursday. I'll report back.
  4. I am going to be nice unless they are difficult. I am going to let them know how frustrated this has been. Hell, the New York store was not great the last time either, and while New York pulled it out in the end, there is a lot of miscommunication going on. I have to think they have had a lot of turnover, but frustrating loyal customers isn't really all that great. I pretty faithfully buy 2-4 bags per year from them. I am not doing pricey special orders, but I am a faithful customer. I think 2021 was the only year I have not bought a bag, mainly becuase I was planning on buying 2-3 in January of 2022 when in Paris for my birthday (now May 2022, but still). UGHHHHHHHHH. Ok, back to talking about Trump Rioters. I know, I know, first world problems.
  5. Nope. I have a beret that was made in England (got it at Lock & Co), but it is definitely a winter hat. Is getting angry at Goyard Surly Parisian enough for you? Trying to make a fucking appointment and they just referred me back to the New York store. SO FRUSTRATING! I am in PARIS NOW! And yeah, I do not want to wait in line behind a bunch of people who are going in there to buy fucking wallets and small shit. The last time I was there, we were taken upstairs, given champagne while we shopped, and told to make an appointment to avoid the line. I expect better.
  6. That is too bad. It is an excellent hotel. I always feel so taken care of here.
  7. Nope. I have been in Paris all day. Jenna is a sad, sad person. She is an idiot. I have chosen to move on.
  8. I slept horribly last night. Boohoo. Trying to get motivated. Already went out, had coffee and a croissant, but came back as my phone was still charging. I need to head to FNAC for a battery pack, then off to Montmartre.
  9. Just wow. Is this you projecting your fucked up takes on others? Negged.
  10. You are a special kind of stupid to stay in a community where most of the people don't like you. It's very on brand for you.
  11. Ummm... https://www.rawstory.com/nick-fuentes-gay/
  12. Didn't make it to the Palais Galliera for the exhibits, so will have to do that another day. Did make it to their terrace for lunch though. The setting is great, food and drinks interesting, but don't be in a hurry. Service got bogged down today because there were a number of large (5 or more) tables. It was Sunday afternoon with gorgeous weather, so I can't complain. Afterwards, hit MAM. The Toyen exhibit was exceptional. I'm not a modern art person, but I loved her work. Afterwards, came back to the hotel and took a nap. Then had a massage, and now on my way to dinner at Le Chardenoux. It's pouring and will be the rest of the night, so it'll be an early night comparatively.
  13. The Richard Mille Rallye des Princesses was starting today from Place Vendome. I so want to do this.
  14. Alright, dinner done. Walked down Boulevard du Montparnasse to LA Closerie des Lilas. I'm sitting at Hemingway's seat at the bar.
  15. To be fair, he isn't here to defend himself. So, let's get back to talking about The Supremes. Just want to add a hearty FUCK YOU to Clarence Thomas for his whining in Dallas. People on the train looked at me when I scoffed VERY LOUDLY.
  16. To be fair, I thought I looked pretty good for having COVID and having had 2 bottles of wine that night.
  17. Yeah, he called me Katy. 1. I'm not Katy. 2. I look nothing like Katy. Hell, I look younger now than Katy did 10 years ago. 3. Sack hates women. It is very obvious in the way he attacks us. Just to be clear, a lot of women have chosen not to get married of have children. It's not because we are bitter, or as Sack believes, lonely and unloved since we can't keep a man.
  18. I slept like the dead. Woke up, showered (the shower in my hotel room is fucking amazing! I'm in love!), dressed, and headed to dinner at Montee. Will write it up in the AM, but I highly recommend it. They knew this was my third time dining thre. The food is so, so good.
  19. Cross posted with the ERCOT thread. Greg is trying to distract.
