me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
i'm composing this in the luxembourg airport (aerogare), and i'm noticing
a high concentration of bitchpants. i
can't think that the world has made
so pairs many bitchpants that they're just stashed away in americans'
closets like confederate money, weapons of mass destruction, or earth shoes,
so i suspect we shipped them here, to europe.
the bitchpants trade
the bitchpants trade has taken a heavy toll on the presence of bitchpants
in america. currently, the only places where you can find bitchpants making a
strong presence are south beach, miami, chelsea, manhattan, and in the
immediate circle around todd oldham.
it seems we shipped our bitchpants
here, since about 25% of the people i see here are wearing bitchpants. that
includes at least two families travelling "pret a bitchpant".
this trip to europe taught me a few things, including stuff not related to
* the french will run you over, but the folks in luxembourg will gladly stop
for you. you start to move towards the pedesterian crossway and they
just stop traffic. very polite.
* the french can understand english, they just like making you suffer.
perhaps my really pathetic attempts at french made them suffer, as well.
* years ago i had wanted to spend a summer biking from madrid to london,
which would have taken me through france. well, i now know i could have
travelled in france and survived, but it would have been a quiet trip. i
feel bad i can't speak french well, i can say my bon jour and my merci, and
i can even say si vous plez, i just do so poorly. but given i'm a guest
in their country, i should at least try better ... after all, they happily try
and speak english when they speak to americans ...
more bitchpants have entered the building, and my battery is getting low.
i'll see you stateside.
i would have liked to have seen the architecure in amsterdam, i should
schedule a trip sometime. same for paris, i should go sometime.
