Yesterday was a long day, but a good day nonetheless. I had to say goodbye to my longtime favorite umbrella, it just wasn’t doing the job with the huge downpour yesterday! I must not have been the only one with this problem, most shops had sales on umbrella’s. After school, Daniele and I went to the local Annecy theater for their annual catalogue release event. They open up the theater and everyone rushes to a seat, we arrived just in time to get a seat in the back row. The stage had only a small table and chair, a bottle of water, and a glass upon it. Then a huge screen was lowered, and a man came out to talk about each of the plays / music events / dance numbers. Some even had previews displayed on the big screen! We returned to the house later than anticipated because the event took longer than anticipated. Daniele was disappointed because this meant dinner was cold! Last night was also the season finale of “Nouvell Star,” the French version of American Idol. We had to watch, so for the first time we at dinner in front of the TV. Even though it was not hot, the dinner was very very good, and all new things. To start we had simply radishes with salt, bread and butter. You just take a bite out of the raw radish, dip it in salt, and then have some bread. The radishes are less like round golf balls here and more like oversized pills, really small and oval-shaped. Less strong also, but good like this! Then we had a specialty of Lyon, a fish casserole sort of thing. Lots of cheese. As Daniele dished me up, she exclaimed, “CATASTROPH!!” A cold dinner for the French is a catastrophe I guess. I though, why wouldn’t we just reheat it? But I guess this is a no no for French cuisine. For dessert, we have a wonderful rhubarb pie, and we just poured cold cream on top. It was delicious.
