Being part of the European Weblog Award thing has humbled me as I am very ignorant about other European countries.

The chap who is currently in the lead, for instance, writes his blog all in French. I could not manage that.

I went to Paris once and thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was just after the LTLP and I (grammar) first met and we loved it even if there was lots of dog shit everywhere, including one bit in the supermarche (that is French for supermarket) by the deli counter.

I am also a big fan of Georges Brassens, Jacques Tati and Daphne du Maurier.

As I am falling behind in the voting a bit I have decided to make an extra effort to appeal to a wider audience, so I was up all night painstakingly translating this.

When I’d finished, I thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever read.

But then I’d had a couple of beers.
