The Husband & Me

Are you Irish or American?
American. For more on my origins, click here

How are the French lessons going?
Really, truly, fantastically, thank you very much!
Well, it's really thank you to my wonderfully, patient tutor, Sophie.
One couldn't ask for a better teacher. C'est vrai!
(That means 'it's true'. See, I told you they were going well)
If you are interested in lessons, you can contact Sophie here

Are you writing a book?
Maybe. Why? Would you buy it if I did?

Does The Husband know that you are posting his picture?
um, yeah.

If you could pick anywhere for the two of you to live, where would it be?
That depends if a lottery win is involved. Me; I'd love to live in NYC.
The Husband would love to move to Texas or Dublin

Why was The Husband in Dublin in the first place?
The Husband had been a rugby player until he broke his ankle in all sorts of places. Because he was sidelined, he decided to join a friend in Dublin and spend a few months learning English. Luckily for him, he had an English speaking girlfriend by his third day there (me).
And his friend so astutely said, "If you want to learn English, stick with this girl, she doesn't know any French."

Where did you and The Husband meet?
At a nightclub. Pretty tacky, huh?
(for the story of how we met, check out these posts; Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)

Does Fifty realize how lucky he is?
No. He's a spoiled brat who hasn't started to earn his keep at all. I threaten to send him back to the dumpster from which he came but he merely ignores me and continues to destroy whichever appliance he's chewing on at that moment.

How did Fifty get his name?
The Husband listens to Fifty Cent. A lot. A whole lot.
(And I'm sure if we lived in the States he'd be called Fiddy, but here in France, it's Feefty)

Le Petit Village & Le Villagers

This Family Tree shows who is who and how everyone is connected


How far up is Le Petit Village?
830 meters to you Europeans. 2724 feet to you Americans


How old is Honey Jr?
Honey Jr came into this world in 1983.
At this exact moment, he's 30 and an Aries.

Is Honey Jr single?
yes.
(Update: sorry ladies, he's been taken off the market)

So The Honey's really make honey?
yes.

Does Papa read your blog?
Not that's he mentioned. But since he doesn't speak English, I doubt it.
Unless he reads it for the 'pictures'.

French Food & What Not

Can you make Raclette with a sandwich grill?
I have no idea.

What kind of cheese do you use for a Raclette?
Raclette cheese. Seriously. It's called Raclette.
But, we have used Saint-Nectaire too and it was D E L I C I O U S.

Is Raclette similar to Fondue?
It is in that they both involve melted, cheesy, goodness.

random bits & bobs


Is a full Irish breakfast any different than a full English?
Yes, one is Irish, the other is English.

Have you noticed that there are a lot of expats named Sarah?
Well now that you've mentioned it, yes.
But so you don't go and lump me in the expat Sarah category,
 my name is Sara, not Sarah.

What is B.F.E.?
It's a Texas expression used to describe the middle of nowhere,
as in, Le Petit Village is in the middle of B.F.E. (Butt F*ck Egypt)

How do I say I want to be your real friend without sounding creepy?
Go ahead and say it. And email me. But only if you speak English.
(j/k, I'll take French emails too)

Tell me about these Nazi Ghost Zombies...
Not much to tell really. They were once Nazis but since they're dead they're ghosts now, and because they were super duper evil, they turned into zombies.
They like to hideout in Le Petit Village and scare the bejeezus out of me.
They think it's funny. Me, not so much.
