On his lunch break Monday, the CEO found a huge Carrefour hypermarket near his office and purchased some accessories pour notre chambre. Out out damn pancakes!
This morning a workman came by to assess the bathroom plug situation. Which was super fun for me considering he spoke no English and my French doesn't yet extend much past bonjour/soire/nuit, merci, oui, non, and crepe. But I managed to get my point across with wild hand gestures and a series of grunts and clicks. Et viola!
And thanks to a co-worker of Jason's for tipping us off, we are now the proud owners of a piece of life-changing technology: the Airport Express. It magically turns ethernet into wi-fi! Poof! And just like that, the chains that tethered me to the desk (or within 6 feet of the desk) shattered and turned to dust.
