  • [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."

Cool quote art, Claire.

And good luck packing!

Hope floats!!!

You're going to do great, kiddo!

The next chapter is waiting...

Claire- I'm sorry I missed this. We got the full brunt of the storm and I was without the essentials... cable, internet connection, electricity! Anyhow, I know you're move will go smoothly and as will the transition to this next phase of your life. I can't wait to read all about it.

Say hi to the Union for me! I haven't been there in eons.

Thanks for finding me again, Miss Claire. It has been a long time...this is where the beauty of the blog really shines through, we can comb each other's archives to catch up!

Looks like you are perched on a brand new adventure with some old twists thrown in. I am excited for you. I hope the move goes smoothly.

Well, I've only cried once since coming to work. And I had to put Frank's picture face-down in my cube.

And when I go home tonight, there will be nothing left but little furry balls of sturm und drang. And apparently bagels and cream cheese (?)

I miss you already, lady.
