Hello world! It’s “Clean Monday” in Greece and by the time you read this post I’ll be already fat! No, no,no… “clean” unfortunately is not the day that the population is mass detoxing via ala Paltrow juicing. No, no,no. Huge name conflict. It’s the date of upgrading to rounder figures through the insane consumption of lagana(bread) and halva(sweet confection). By the way if you ever hear someone call you “halva”….it’s not good!
On an unrelated note I honestly believe I was Asian in my past life. No joke. Gimme me a kimono, a dozen of shrimp and pork dumplings, a one way ticket to wherever on the east side and I’m the happiest girl in the word. The triplet of joy. And speaking of kimonos behold the goosebumps producing machine I’ve mentioned in a previous post. The one I briefly held in my arms in Dries’ Paris-store, cried a river and drowned the whole world when I was told that was the last piece and already sold and flew to the moon at the hearing of it could be ordered from Belgium and delivered to my hotel-room within two days. Universal commerce if you will but my mind was completely unaware of this new reality. A credit card ready to get assassinated and all at your doorstep. Eeeeeee-haaaaa!
