  • [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."

Oh, Claire! I'm sorry you've been without power for so long. And I give you major kudos for writing a post on a Blackberry! I can't imagine typing out all those words on that tiny little gadget!

I'll check out your visualblogging "link."

See the quiet beauty in your everyday.

I'm in major need of being reminded of that!

Hope you're doing ok. Hang in there!

I am the Slammer Queen!

Erasing or losing what you have written - is there anything quite so irksome? Well, yes, I guess so... but still, ah!

I am looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of 3191.

be well, g

I'm with BG! I can't imagine having to write a post on a Blackberry! The regular keyboard feels too small sometimes.

I'll definitely check out the book. It sounds awesome.

Here's to hoping you get some power soon! Are you documenting your "in the dark" fashion choices? Hmmmm???
