"Infotainment? What the hell are you talking about?"

Have a Lafayette Christmas

I'm not trying to push you towards extreme Xmas consumerism, I'm just the guy saying "Oh look, a bunch of colorful stuff with lights! How neat!" Having said that, go shop! GO! SHOP! Your economy needs you!

    Cute LaFayette pictures. They raise nice memories of last year. And thoughts about consumerism, and waste of electricity... lovely.

    My first time stopping by your journal.

    These pictures are so beautiful! The ornaments so big and colorful. That tree is adorned beautifully. It reminds me of something we'd only see while dreaming. Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures with us.

    Nice Photos. I am getting Ideas for this Christmas..  

  25. # Blogger La Belette Rouge

    Galeries Lafayette is already so over the top beautiful and then they go and do Christmas. I fear my Christmas will not be so grand as to be a Lafayette one. But I appreciate the wish and also your beautiful photographs. Merci!

    Cedric, perused your blog this a.m.
    Found it has a certain visual "push" to it that walks a line for dramatic. Which is good. Wondering if the building dialogues are tied to personality.

    nice blog :) been to Paris but can't imagine what it must be like living there, you're lucky. I just have to say i share your obsession with exclamation marks :) and apparently smiley faces, but, yeah!! Maybe i'll stop by here again sometime.

    Thank you so much for all of the holiday photos from Paris. I spent Christmas there in 2001 and have been dreaming of my time there, and you gave me such nice reminders. I look forward to following your blog! (I like exclamation marks, too) ;0)

    is there a theme to your pics or just the neurotic obsessions of a deranged queen?  

  45. # Blogger Cedric Benetti

    Yes the theme is "I'm waiting for the first idiot to post something insulting on me" and you just won the first prize!

    Come again soon! I know you will

    Do Parisians or Parisiennes ever obey the traffic signals either when walking or driving :-) ?
