Christmas With a Parisian Jew

What better way for a lapsed Christian left-wing liberal lesbian to spend Christmas than with a Parisian Socialist Jew?
We met online about 12 years ago and met in person last year in Paris at the Ritz Hemingway bar. What an auspicious place to meet!
Because Hanukkah is hitting in two days and I'm picking her up at the airport tonight, we'll be doing the thing with the menorah, candles and the Baruch Hanukkah Schmonikka prayers. I like the idea of it, but she'll also be celebrating Christmas with me and my family.
If I don't post again, may all your holidays be sweet, and like Edith Piaf said, have no regrets.

Let Zip's French cooking and delicacy baking begin. If all we have to do to get in on the feasts is listen to French music 24/7, je suis dans. In exchange for listening to a French mix cd Zip made yesterday I got to cash in on some dark chocolate truffles so intense my face broke out instantly.

Your Christmas sounds like a better kind of divine, KZ. I hope it's as fun and restful as you want.

@ bigsis: French chocolate is the one thing I couldn't take to. I could almost feel the reflux starting just from your description!

Joyeux Nöel et Bonnes Vacances.

lain, as if Zip's choc truffles weren't rich enough she added peanut butter. And you're right, after 2 of those little fat bombs I was reaching for the Tagamet! But they were tasty.

In any case, have a wonderful time!

We had a great time!
I gained 5 pounds though. :(
