Heheh- well it's not all good. I fell asleep in 'Les Miserables' (the tickets cost me a fortune, so I was pissed) so I have very little understanding of the story, never having read the book!

I've been all over Paris and never once stepped in it. Beautiful city.
No idea what you guys are talking about
