  1. Are you vacationing with Sarkozy?

  2. Where and what is this “New Hampshire” you keep writing of? It sounds to me like you are actually just in a K Hole sitting in your apartment.

  3. Blueberry pie… sounds awesome.

    Isn’t the massive hangover all part of the vacation (and worth it if said alcohol is free)?
