Distraction & Overload

I could be a professional at distraction. In fact, I think I am. The only sad part about this is, that I do not get paid for it, and in fact it may be inhibiting my ability to get paid. which all contributes to the overload...
And why is it that thinking in french is more difficult for my brain. I cannot hold the main line of a thought process. This makes it really difficult to participate in long conversations, no less make presentations.

Little Joys

This delight is something called a "Café Gourmand" It is your french mini after coffee surrounded by multiple 2-bite size samples of different desserts. This particular one is the best one I've had. This is the time that I don't argue with France anymore about its way of making everything have 6 extra steps, like the woman at the office I visited the other day who was perfectly willing to send me home to get a paper to bring back (around a 3 hour trip) so that she could then give me another paper which incidently, she already had scanned onto her computer. This is when I shut my mouth and smile pleasantly, and eat my dessert.
