  • [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."

Purple daisies and cherry pie. Yep. He's a winner, alright. Too cute.

Where can I get one


Sorry to hear about the peach pie. Don't let it deter you! You must soldier on.

Off topic: Claire, what kind of camera do you have? All your photos turn out so pretty.

Claire- Your talk of Heaven on Seven brought back memories!

Sorry about the pie. We will have to find a way to get you better pie although I'm not sure I would ask anyone to sacrifice themselves by making them go to the burbs! :)

The guy on the train sounds wonderful.

And... thanks for the trackback! I feel official!

Pecan pie! The perfect balance of textures.

There's a place in Louisiana called "Lea's Lunchroom" that has the most perfect pie. Wish you could go there!

I love your PFR...and think it needs to be a nation-wide thing. People from cities all over the country (or heck! the world!) should sign up to be independent field researchers (IPFRs) and submit reports, so that when you (and others travel), there will be a resource for the best pies.

I only say that, because I want to be the Portland IPFR so that I have an excuse to eat pie. is that so wrong?

Amy, I *love* the idea. Except that I wish I could join the IPFRs, because that means I could travel more. Hm... I wonder if I could get a grant for my research...

Seriously, though, I love the idea of spreading the love of pie everyday. I could make badges for people who want to be IPFRs.

Oh god! I can't wait for March 14! Pie day!

badges are a great idea. i would love to be the portland ipfr/iafr (alcohol - not all alcohols go with pie, but it is equally important to the travel experience).

A slow start, but it'll be fun moving up from HOS! And, btw, I AM a crust snob--I was reared on Grandma Pearl's pies and nobody makes crusts like that woman did. Her hands should have been insured for millions!
