getting frenchy

(currently listening to french hip hop and drinking french wine, occasionally getting up to try choreographing while in Kansas Briefs, H&M German halter top and sneakers. Zoe would laugh at me... and ask me where my heels are!)

I like this rose:

mas de gourgonnier
Les Baux de Provence
Appellation les Beaux de Provence Controlee
Imported by North Berkeley Imports

hee hee; Berkeley. Amusing, non? After like 10 bottles of rose that were sad and disappointing, I finally found one that wasn't sweet and yet still tastes of berries. Next stop: the spiciness that was in the rose's that I had in France.

The Frenchman at Cafe Couleur told me right: the French don't export their rose; they keep it for themselves. The safest way to go is to look for rose's from Cote de Provence (there were none at BevMo), but Beux de Provence is pretty damn close.

SCREW the American selections.
I WILL conquer the importing doom and find the yum.


PS: feel free to bring me more of it! I just finished it :(

PPS: in the Midwest, you can find size 8 in cute stuff, because they actually stock higher sizes (I'm talking cute underwear, ladies), so everyone my size and bigger doesn't have to buy my size and leave it sold out.
Consequently, I went to 2 WalMarts and bought about oh... 30 pairs of cute undies.

Also, I love french hip hop and this is my long-lost favorite french hip-hop video:
