62

The 62nd edition of the Carnival of the Vanities is hosted by Setting The World To Rights this week.

Entries sent to me this week would normally have been forwarded to StWtR, but harddrive issues prevented that.

Apologies to:

Newmark's Door, who sent in Why I Love The Internet, Part 3689
I'm having a discussion and at one point I trot out the famous line, "Hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue." Quite a line. But I pause and think, who said that? I don't remember, the other person doesn't, my Bartlett's isn't handy, so it's time to Google it.

And to Magyar Blog, who submitted My French Problem, And Yours
I'm 15, sitting in the the rental car with my mother outside the tourist office in Dijon, psyching myself up to go in and ask for a map of the city. Avez-vous une carte de Dijon? I say to myself over and over, eyes closed, head bowed in concentration. Avez-vous une carte de Dijon? "Enough," my mother says, "go." I walk in to the office, and get in line. Avez-vous une carte de Dijon? Avez-vous une carte de Dijon? I've totally got it now. My turn comes up, I walk to the counter, smile and say it perfectly. The man looks at me, half-smiles as he eyes me quickly up and down, and after a few seconds, raises his eyebrows and asks, "In English?"

December 3rd Begging To Differ
