Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.
Cover with melted cheese...
Et voilà !

If only it were that easy...

You know how, when you buy a new wallet, 
it comes with fake credit cards?

Well, FQ treated himself to a new portefeuille recently
& inside, printed on cardboard, was this:

This week, while experiencing the annual exercise in frustration
known as renewing my Carte de Séjour (Resident's Visa),
I couldn't help wishing it was that easy to add French nationality 
to my collection of ID cards.

OK, OK, so the woman in the photo 
is a bit older than me,
surely has a better French accent than I do,
& has bangs & brown eyes.

Otherwise, I could totally pass myself off as her, non?

P.S.  The tomatoes have nothing to do with immigration.  
Just in case you were wondering.


  1. Hmmm, maybe. But don't you think Emily Quairel is a way, way nicer name than Corrine Berthier? I do.

  2. Hmm... maybe you're right. I don't really feel like a Corinne.
