  • [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."

Meant to comment on this before... Your trip/pix look awesome! How much fun - it's some beautiful living up there.

Also, we must truly be sisters separated at birth as for the past week I have been *obsessed* with Fiest's "Mushaboom" - I got it on a comp CD that came with the music issue of McSweeney's Believer magazine. I feel like I could have written that song - well, if I had any musical talent whatsoever.

I wanna make you a Calexico mix and some other tunage - music swap anytime soon?
