  • [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."

Congratulations, Claire! You paint a lovely scene of relief and relaxation. I hope that you did fix yourself a drink!

No kidding! I sincerely hope you followed through on that inclination. I certainly did, although it doesn't take much of an inclination...

Remember Libby's rule - if you can look around a room and see five people who are stupider than you, you will probably get an A.

I'm glad Frank is enjoying the snow. The paw prints are too effing precious for words. And way cuter than the rat paw prints I'm accustomed to seeing around my apartment...(lady, that's not a cat, it's a jumbo sized sewer rat!).

You bet your sweet ass you're not totally free! Now get baking!!!

Not to give you any more of the heebies than Frank already has, but you know he got those fleas from whatever poor woodland creature he was molesting earlier. Eeeeeeew.

congrats on finishing up your classes! keep yourself snuggly warm!

Thank you, Claire, as always for your remarkable photographs. In a world where we're inundated with visual stimulation, and even those of us seeking the unique artistry the camera captures, only to find images grossly photoshopped, your compelling photos never fail to draw me into a clear, pure place that lifts me up.
And I don't care if you do use photoshop, because if you do, I would never guess.

Thanks ladies!! I'm currently dealing with a very slow (and by slow, I mean stupid) customer service person. Awesome! Exactly the way I wanted to start my Friday night! I hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Congrats to two super ex-colleagues who got promotions this week! You ladies rule!
