ma chère badaude! you how no idea how much willpower it took for me not to answer you in your accent. I may be American by birth but I'm Franglaise in my heart.
It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope we'll have the chance to do it again!

Great post! I never knew what a roulette was! I'm happy to have learned something new today!

I think they have several names. The full version is a chariot, sac or cabas a roulettes, and I've also heard them referred to as a 'pousette' which usually means a pram or baby buggy. But the French have so many uses for these 'trucs' (or mini-trucks) that maybe the terminology has to remain various or vague...

Hello Badaude! I've been enjoying making my way around your blog, and I had a good time reading your Expat Interview as well. You have a marvelous talent with illustration and caricatures, and you write beautifully as well!
I, too, am blown away by how adorable and chic Lauren is -- in addition to being really intelligent, witty and sincere. I'm so lucky to have had the chance to meet her. Will miss her over the coming months, keeping in mind, though, that she WILL be back! :)
