I have to come clean and tell you that this isn't actually Paris. Sorry.
But it's almost Paris, quand meme!
It's still in zone two of the good old transport system, and it's just one stop after the Cite Universite, so it's pretty close.
This was, nevertheless, taken on a thirty second stroll to the local (well, the only) boulangerie in this sleepy quartier where I woke up on this particular morning.
I've got quite a thing about cats at the moment, what with the Shakespeare Incident (see previous posting), and other scattered happenings.
I'm starting to think Something Is Taking Place; I often have the strangest feeling that maybe I'm Being Watched but I'm Not Sure Yet...
I used to have a friend who almost convinced me that she was a top-secret special agent for MI6 (the UK's foreign intelligence agency), telling me that the way red cars were parked in her road were signs as to whether it was safe go into her house or not, and the aeroplanes that passed overhead were symbols telling her that it was ok... I was 'in'! I later realised that she must be completely mad, but it was spooky while it lasted and it was scary how seeming coincidences can be construed as fact.
Witchdoctoring is actually alive and kicking in the western world, be it in the form of horoscopes or coaching or any of the other multitudinous manifestations of the age-old art of making people think you can solve all their problems.
And if you believe, I firmly believe it works. That's what it's all about.
Check out this guy, the Stupefying Professor Kathio...
He's a great 'medium' and a great 'seer', apparently, and seeing as he's currently amazing the entire world, it seems like a pretty good time to get in touch.
Among his many specialities, where he can solve all our problems, are love, work, sexual fascination (?), success, health, getting your partner to show up or come back, financial difficulties, getting rid of evil curses, becoming fatter or thinner as you want... and so the list goes on.
Apart from his highly efficient and, indeed, miraculous results, the clincher has to be this:
Thanks to a "secret potion", he can now work with his clients by correspondence.
Ahh, the wonders of modern technology, eh? Power to your e-bones, Prof. Kathio.
