  • [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."

I say go for the second option, not only is it super cute but it seems fitting to get a journal for the anniversary of your online journal. We just had a new paper botique open up in downtown Missoula and I can't wait for your birthday/christmas/special event/no special reason to get you something from it. Maybe your blogging anniversary? Hmm. Call me soon, I need to hear all about your trip other than on your blog. Love, Alix

Happy Belated Anniversary!

Happy Blog-aversary. Pie is in order.

I heart the nana goat. Heart, heart, heart!

Happy Anniversary, Claire and Esprit de L'Escalier!
People react strangely when I say I have a blog, too. And a fiction blog? Most people really aren't interested. But the last time I saw my migraine doctor, he was up on my stories. And my dentist is either really good at putting on a front or else reads me regularly.

Thanks ladies!

Kathleen, that is hilarious that your dentist reads your blog.

Happy Belated Blogiversary, Claire!

The shot of your Nana Goat is too cute. And I'm with you -- getting things in the mail from friends who are thinking of you is the *best!*

I find that most people don't have an "Internet" life either. Which always surprises me. It's like thinking most people aren't into reading magazines.

Anyway, here's to another year of Clair-blogging! You know how much I love to live vicariously through all that you do!
