Linguist, lexicographer, writer, editor, broadcaster


You just knew I’d start sprinkling everything with French words, didn’t you? So far, everything seems slightly cheaper than New York City, probably because of the great exchange rate. Shopping last night: muesli (hey, it’s Europe), orange juice, butter (the real kind), a box of Earl Grey tea, sterilized milk in a box, two peaches: FF51.55, about US$7.34, figuring about seven francs to the dollar. Left to right shots of my apartment (closet, radiator, windows, yellow curtains, etc.), and a picture of the kitchenette.
