And indeed I do...much in the way I love any of the world's great cities when somebody's bunging me to be there plus generous expenses. Yes I am in Paris and indeed it is the vrai printemps here today, sunny but not horribly cold. The trees are leafy and the plume de ma tante est sur le table. due to the leaves I cannot definitively comment on the whereabout of the singe - but it is a pound to a pinch of merde that he is in that fcuking arbre again. Now normally I travel with an elite team of people who I can dine, drink and generally talk bolox too - sometimes even work related stuff. Yet I find myself here for three days and in need of a social interaction. well, I say "need"...I've got money, cigars and books. I could interact myself up a storm if I so desired, all by myself. However are any worthy sons of Arrse - or indeed Arrse Maidens - in the great fromage ce soir? I'm thinking Versailles but the RER is five mins from my hotel and one can't play all one's games at home? Who's up for it and what suggestions for "entertainment" do you have? No whores, no time-wasters, no miserable sods crying into their pints about how England was robbed by France - get over yourself , how do you think supporting Scotland feels all the time? Well now you know.
