Facebook versus Blog
First, let me give a quick shout out to my new Favorite Couple and the United States Military. Mr. Favorite Couple works with Mr. Big here in Switzerland. Favorite Couple also reads this blog, hence, they are well aware that I need some bleach. Well, yesterday, Monday, Mr. Big goes into the office and there, sitting on his desk, is a gallon bucket of Clorox. Honest-to-God Clorox. With a no-spill spout. Like it just grew up out of his desktop by magic.
album on FB so you can see the pix, which were fabulous. I really don’t know how to do this, so I will probably have to enlist the help of my sister and, hopefully, she will be able to figure out this link stuff. Barcelona is a large, large city (4 million people!) on the Mediterranean with really good shopping and stunning architecture by a man named Antoni Gaudi. Everywhere you turn is another Kodak moment. But, it is full of tourists and all that that entails, so beware.
http://www.me-barcelona.com/. It was nice. No complaints. It certainly wasn’t jaw-dropping, but, remember, this was a work-related trip, so I was just glad it was not attached to the airport, which is where Mr. Big usually stays on work-related trips.
Reluctantly, we left the marina when the sun went down and it got cold without spying a single soul on this boat. It was locked up tighter than a drum. But, truthfully? I don’t think Mr. Big cared. He just wanted to stare at the boat. Weird, I tell you. Weird. I did ask him, as we were walking back to the Metro stop, if Tiger Woods had a big yacht. Mr. Big looked at me like I had just stripped naked on the street. “Honey. Tiger Wood’s yacht is one-tenth the size of that boat. Tiger Woods’ yacht could fit inside one of the restrooms of that yacht.”
I said, well maybe that is why Tiger can only pick up hookers. His yacht is tiny. Mr. Big said, “Girl, you know the only difference between men and boys. . .”
UPDATE, CHALET GOO GAW: We have another showing this coming Saturday. We have specified that we must be able to see ALL rooms, all the way around the entire building, and that Madame will not be in attendance. We’ll see how this goes. I’m not holding my breath.
