Un week-end debauché

Today is our wedding anniversary, 22 years. We've booked a hotel in Bordeaux - Hôtel de lOpéra a 2 star jobby in the middle of the town.
We found the hotel through the excellent Bordeaux Tourist Board website. I'm really looking forward to a weekend in the big city, and eating something unusual and delicious. I will eat absolutely anything, and one of the things I love about french cuisine is that they will cook just about anything.
A full report will be published on our return.

On the job front - the factory called today to cancel my 2:00pm appointment because the HR person is in Paris. But they want me to pop in sometime during my shift on Monday, so the can open a file and the on Wednesday I'll sign the contract.

So it is definitely ON! At last I get to be a fully-fledged, can't-fire-me, job-for-life, union-member french labourer. I wonder which Union I should join. The one that will piss off the fewest co-workers. If I don't join a union I'll piss off all my co-equipiers. I'll probably be the only Sarkozy supporting union member in France!

I'd have said to join the Union with the cutest steward, but it sounds like you've 22 years of reasons not to go that route. {-;

Congrats to both of you!!! Hope the weekend was fantastic.

Hey, you OK?
It's been over a month since you blogged... we're kinda, like, well, concerned.
