Feliz Navidad 2007 y … Joyeux Noël 2008 et … Merry Christmas!!!

Volume 26 & 27
(Did you notice…I missed last year!)

The Alphabet Through A Broad’s Broad Eyes…Living Abroad!

A is for alcohol, an affordable word.
Not to drink “When in Rome”? Absolutely Absurd!
B is for beer…detecting a theme?
It’s my interim retirement, a life made from dreams!
C is for Canada, our image is clean.
In Europe we’re known for the cold and Celine!
D is for Dana, I’m so glad I’m me.
By any other name, me, I might not be!
E is for European Economic Community.
If Canada would join up, I’d be granted impunity!
F is for Fr-An-Glish, a linguistic mix.
It’s just English words working out in Spandex!
G’s for gâteau (French) and gato (Spanish).
Both comfort me when I’m faulty or famished!
H is for happy, if I could, I would purr.
And lick my bum, and vomit after cleaning my fur!
I is for Internet, which I desperately now want.
After years of refusing, it ironically haunts!
J is for Jaca, a special dot on my map.
Magic mountains, amigos, shrooms, memories and naps!
K’s for kiss every familiar cheek you meet.
Lota PDA goin’ on in these European streets!
L’s always for Lauren, still forefront of thoughts.
I’ve sorted my priorities…kid, smokes, coffeepot!
M’s for Montpellier, my personal Club Med.
Warm soleil and amis, and a lot of long bread!
N’s for Non-Smokers, a rare breed in these parts.
Customizing new smoking laws, a French/Spanish art!
O’s for “Oh-la-la” and also “Olé”.
As an ambassador of Canada, I’m obliged to spread “Eh"!
P is for people, from all walks and talks.
Thank God for body language, deodorant and locks!
Q is for quest without an objective.
Builds character, sore muscles, wit, debt and perspective!
R is for recognizing my life in the “now”.
Not dwelling on future or past, takes know-how!
S is for style-of-life that feels good.
What is YOUR “if…” clause in the conditional “I would…”?
T is for treats, Canadian “Temptations”.
Cats can crave Canada when on vacation!
U is for Updates, my story of mistakes.
But my learnings become my souvenirs and keepsakes!
V is for Visa (OK, and Master Card), vin and vino.
Without my “V” words, I’d most definitely be Emo!
W’s for world, an ever-shrinking space.
With Internet and planes, home can be any place!
X is for Xmas, short form for Christmas.
“I’m coming home,” says Lauren! The best gift is “us”!
Y is for Yo, this trip’s all about Moi.
Free to discover and staying free from the law!
I can’t successfully end this poem with “Z”.
So, I’ll wish you the superlative of Merry, instead!

besos, bisous, kisses
