    ps. will you think more or less of me if I admit that I secretly want a Pedi-Egg? I’m hoping to invest in the company and eventually create a whole range of manicure/pedicure products, starring the Pedi-File *boom-tish*

    If I worked in customs I think I would confiscate your suitcase!

    As for no vegetables in paris – this is why I have a prejudice against french food – lots of meat butter cream but where are the vegetables! There are a few vegetarian restaurants in paris but I think it is just a place to love the dessert and pastry

    oh that couscous mix looks great!

    30 bars of chocolate?! I am in awe. I appoint you Chocolate Queen. You don’t need vegetables if you’re the Chocolate Queen.

    I suspect there would be a distinct lack of bodice ripping in those books… it just takes a sneeze to become indecent when wearing a hospital gown (or not even that).

    Safe travels, don’t OD on chocolate. Well, actually, if you OD on chocolate you might get to meet a cute doctor. With children.

    Another magnificent post on Paris. I hope that there are more to come. Was the Victor Hugo museum good? How long would it amuse the average 9 year old (anything more than 3.5 minutes would be a bonus)? I’m planning on Victor Hugo as my Paris reading at this stage, so well, the museum seems like a must do. I wasn’t that taken with canelles either from what I remember. Pain d’epice though, that was another thing altogether. The couscous looks fabulous. And if I wasn’t such a lady I think I may have snorted out loud at your medical Mills and Boons musings. Happy travels. 30 bars in 2 days is possibly a world record. And cocoa beans are vegetables what are you talking about woman? I’d go easy on the brussel sprouts, you never know what they could do to your system.

    I’ve always found cannelés a bit disappinting myself, which is a shame, because they have so much potential with that caramelized exterior. I keep trying, but I have yet to eat one that blows me away.

    That vase/pitcher/whatever it is is totally awesome. I think every house should have one. 🙂

    Fiona: Forgive me my jetlag-induced stupidity, but I’m not entirely sure what you mean! :S

    L-Izzle: I’m free now for that slice of heaven 😛 P.S. I promise not to think less of you for wanting one if you promise not to think less of me for owning one… (didn’t buy it in Paris though!)

    Johanna: They darn well tried, the little blighters! Well, not customs, but the suitcase with the chocolate didn’t make it to Canberra even though the other one, checked through at the same time, did. Hopefully it arrives this afternoon…

    Simply Life: It was a nice change from pastry!

    Agnes: Want to be my lady in waiting? You’ll get tastes!

    Conor: So, more like “bodice wafting”? Although a cute doctor with children would have been nice, I’m mostly relieved my toe survived the trip home. But I am off to the GP tomorrow, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for hunks-o-men.

    Louise: Jetlag-blaming again, but have I mentioned pain d’epice here yet? LOVE THE STUFF. Look for the pearl sugar-crusted kind – so good. I don’t think the Victor Hugo museum would amuse kids for long, sadly. It’s really just his apartment with some paintings, and barely any English. Though I think there were audio tours, which might broaden the experience a little? And yes, there’s definitely more Paris to come! 🙂

    Camille: Steal it for me? Equal trade for Porcelana, I’m sure 😉

    I have no idea what that thing at the Louvre is but…I think I want it too. Did not realise “Doctors with children” was a literary genre, I feel very enlightened 🙂

    Laura: It’d be such a conversation starter, wouldn’t it? And yes, “Doctors with Children” is a big money-spinner, right up there with “Plumbers with Monkeys”. (Okay, I’m very jet-lagged right now…)

  16. Pretty In Pink: Pierre Hermé, March 19th - Wayfaring Chocolate

    […] been an age since my last Paris post.  Over three weeks, to be exact, and even that was a Glimpses post. To follow my Paris adventures chronologically, I must ask you to cast your eyes as far back as […]
