Ms Dunst was not at the palace



Versailles. Is really really big. The palace is anyway. The town reminds me of Santa Barbara. About the same level of affluence, roughly the same size, within shouting distance of a huge city, trying to remain autonomous from its neighbor and failing. After a day leisurely biking around the grounds of the palace I went home to thoroughly research exactly what happened to Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI during the French Revolution. And by thoroughly research I mean that I tried to rent Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette from the neighborhood video store (sidenote: It is surprisingly easy to rent movies in Paris as a foreigner. Considering how mind-shatteringly hard it is to do just about everything else, movie rentals go rather smoothly). It was checked out. So, for the first time since I bought this computer I used the included World Book Encyclopedia. Fascinating.

You know, I was just about to write something like:

"What coincedence!?, what divine providence!? that I should type in your blog address and see that you have started blogging again."

Then I read a few more comments, and saw someone had already said it. And you thought it was me (Dave). But it wasn't. But now it is. Touche.

It is true - so magnetic is the once great and powerful hzablog, that at it's re-awakening we are all drawn to it.

I s'pose all roads lead to Gilead, and the world has not moved on.

And now, I feel like the worlds biggest nerd. Thanks asshole.
