  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Claire,

Enjoyed reading your new blog...plan to drop in to see what's up with you. Check out the soundtrack from the movie "Crash." I'm finding myself constantly humming Bird York's "In the Deep," that haunting slow song near the end of the movie. Mark Isham's "Adagio for Strings" is a must-hear too. later.

Kontroll is an amazing movie. I am warming up to Wilco, I honestly got them confused with Bright Eyes for a little while. Like a year.

AG is going with UC to Wilco next week. UC got the tickets and asked me to go.
