Near, far, wherever you are

Salaam alaikum. Greetings from Marrakech.

"Marra-fucking-kech?" I hear you cry. Well, me too. That was my reaction.

It was Wednesday when I got a call from le Fabulous Parisien.

"Can you get friday off work?" he asked.

"Well, I can always work from home the morning....what do you have in mind?"

"A friend wants to give me a weekend away for my birthday - can you come with me?" he said, mysteriously.

"Sure - but why isn't the friend coming with you instead?"

"She's busy. Very busy. I'll make the arrangements and call you back".

And call me back he did.

"The jet will be waiting for us at le Bourget on Thursday evening. A limo is coming to get us at 7pm. Is that ok?" He presented all of this in a very matter of fact way. "We're going to Marrakech, by the way".

"Hold on!" said I. "Whose is the effing jet? Who is this friend?"

"It's Céline's"

"You're taking me to Marrakech in Céline Dion's Jet?" I said, astounded.

"Oh yeah baby," he replied. "But you don't know the half of it..."

alan a dit…

see, this is why I'm giving up blogging! You're way too exciting for me to even try and keep up.

I bet you can imagine JJ's reaction when I told him? His screech is still ringing in my ear.

A bit like Celine's voice so.

Do we think being bffs with Celine Dion is best announced out loud? Really?

while I absolutely LOVE this story - it really would have been SO MUCH cooler if it had been anyone other than Celine Dion. ANYONE! mind you, I'm mainly saying that cause my jealousy is eating me right up. Hope you have an absolutely wicked time xx (clicks fingers ala le Fabulous Parisien)

travelling, but not in love a dit…

Hello everyone -

I'm guessing a response to each of you is kind of over the top now, so late after your comments, but hey - thanks for dropping by.

It was a crazy weekend, and an amazing experience to share with le FP.

Is this love? Or is it just Céline Dion?

Who knows.....
