My Photo


  • [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 so wish you could be here with me! But I do think that long weekends are an excellent way to get travel in when you have limited vacation. And I have Mondays off this quarter . . .

I'm going to be in NYC from Oct. 27-31 (or thereabouts) and was considering a bunk bed room at the Ace Hotel. Let me know if you want to room with me. ;-)

P.S. -- If it sweetens the deal, I'm going for PhotoPlus Expo, an event at the Impossible Project, and a private pola-photowalk. You should come to all of the above!

Your 30th in Montreal? God, I'm already packing.

My coworker is in Peru for a week right now. We both told our employer when we got hired (about the same time you did) that we were going to need time off. He went to Machu Picchu. I went to Wisconsin.

Friend, we need a trip. Maybe we should get a small group of awesome-folk together and take over a B&B in Montreal this April?
