I'm Not Here

Good morning!

I hopped the red eye last night and decided to spend the day in Paris...instead of wasting today sitting in a boring office with stressed-out people, and pretending to work.

Won't you join me? This song will make you smile, promise. I've been singing it all morning, and I think every time you do, Air France gives you frequent flyer miles.

I think you meant WE are not here! The song made me smile oh so much!

I'm off to pack my bag, never mind I will buy what I need when I get there.

I really love this post.

I love the carefree tone and the air of 'n'importe qouis' that it provokes.

Greetings from London.

What a dreamy post! Love the song, especially after watching the last day of the Tour de France on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. I think I'll hop the same red-eye tonight, or maybe the one to Venice.

This made me smile - every time I look at a plane I wonder where it's going and whether it will take me along...

Let's hope it's not going to Houston. I've been there already.

Oh, I love a good adventure, and you're all about the adventures, aren't you?
Wonderful. Why pretend to work at home when you can pretend to work elsewhere ;)
I love the music, nice and jazzy.

Hi all! Thanks for joining me in my little daydream yesterday. Didn't that song perk you up a bit?

Maybe someday some of you and me will really be there, sitting in a cafe, walking, taking photos of the city and each other...sigh...yes, wouldn't that be loverly?

Yes! Let's go.
