random photos including homemade banana bread

The nice thing about banana bread is that it keeps up to 5 days, wrapped and in the fridge. Every morning I’d cut a generous slice and take it to the office to sit at my desk and eat it with a double espresso on the side. A nice way to start the day.

No matter how long you’ve been speaking a foreign language, you’ll suddenly come across a surprising new word. The other day I passed a florist shop. Out front were yellow snapdragons. Guess what they’re called in French? Gueule de loup, which means ‘wolf mouth’. I laughed out loud and took a photo.

Lunch the other day with a colleague:

This weekend, my Swedish friend has organized a two-day birthday bash at different locations across the city (that haven’t been disclosed yet.) His sister sent us the lyrics to “Happy Birthday” in Swedish – and a YouTube video – so that we could sing to him. As I was watching the video, I thought – Wait a minute, his birthday’s in December. I know that because we share the same birth date.

It’s a belated party. I’ll take photos.

  1. Today I learned a new French word, “désamiantage”, meaning asbestos removal. (It is one of the reasons the Centre Pompidou will be closed for five years, from 2025 to 2030.)
