Rien de Nouvelle? Nouveau?

The title of this reflects how I feel about my French skills at the moment. Not good. I look forward to the day where I'm not embarassed to speak in public. Anyway, I got up early this morning and Perrine and I drove to le Part-Dieu for some shopping on the first day of the soldes. It was complete would think that they would be only lasting for a couple days...not a whole month. I had really boring things to get like an umbrella and slippers, and I searched for a pair of those killer boots that everyone has here, but none of the ones I liked fit correctly. Lucky for my bank account...for now. I did end up spending quite some time there, however, just looking at all the different shops. Janine met me there and we went to Casino once more on our way home...this time sans chaos. And then I sat around all afternoon, ate dinner, and that's it. I can't wait to meet more people so I have things to do. Again, I have no idea what i'm going to do tomorrow, but maybe I'll go to the Parc Tete d'Or where there are plants and zoos and people...I wonder how the French feel about having their picture taken? I'm afraid to find out...Ciao for now!
