Expensive cakes. A melancholic Call me Maybe ?
Sunday lunchtime. Half an hour down the motorway to the departmental capital. A mini Paris. A place with a museum full of stuffed birds, an eye wateringly expensive restaurant and the headquarters of the local tax authority. The second and third facts may somehow be related.
In the square facing the ' fiscales ' a very upmarket patiserrie . Angus eyes a strawberry cake for €40. ' The font ' points out that's $50 at todays exchange rate.We have a coffee instead.
Every college sports team has done a video lip syncing to ' Call me Maybe ' . A catchy little tune that a lot of us find ourselves, involuntarily, humming as we drive along. What do you think of this version filmed on campus in New Haven ? Clever or melancholic ? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itZI6hd_qZs
