Comment Conjuger Les Verbes

Well, there's s one verb I'll conjugate this evening: "je suis ivre." I may not be doing it right, but don't I have a good excuse? Perhaps I should ask my teacher tomorrow morning but I've found that I'm still the same type of student I ever was, which is to say, timid. I don't know if I'll be able to muster the question, "Comment dit-on, I am drunk?" at 9 am.

This morning, I went to school on a Velib. I went to Gare de l'Est and then took the metro the rest of the way down. I ran into class, as usual.

After class, I met with Les Mesdames at the Centre Pompidou, only to discover that it's closed on Tuesdays. I felt like a bad tour guide. It's ok because my aunt loved the area (Les Halles) and we got crepes (Nutella for me).

Then the three of us poked around les Galeries Lafayette and the Jardin du Luxembourg. From there, I took off to meet Treadwell at a bar he likes on St. Denis. I haven't seen him in at least 8 years. He spends every summer here in Paris. He's doing his PhD in French Lit at Emory. It was great to catch up with him. He scared me for a moment with all his "Lacan" and "Derrida" but besides being an academic, he is really wise. It was great, and by the by, he was the one who got me drunk. I ordered a pint (which is a regular maneuvre for most, but past my limit, times two) and then he ordered me a house special, the petit punch. He said, "You see that jar? The one that looks like it has fetuses in it?" (How appetizing). It was rum with fermenting fruits and yes, it is petit in stature and has quite a (burning, eye-watering) punch. After a lovely chat during which he reminded me that we attended Conversat together during my 3rd year, his 4th (I seriously wouldn't remember anything if there weren't other people's memories to lean on) I met his sister and his girlfriend and then we all parted ways. They went to dinner and I went to ride the metro, seeing double.

It rained this evening, so it was nice and cool. I took a Velib from Gare de l'Est again and rode all the way home, working off the damage from the bar. Now it's time for...homework!
