It’s such an honor to even be nominated…….

I missed the most recent awards show at home, but I probably wouldn’t have known most of the movies or TV shows or even people nominated, so I wasn’t too broken up about it.  I did hear that several nominated films were set in Paris (Hugo, The Artist, and Midnight in Paris), so I really should try to see them over here, if I can find them in English.

Recently I got a comment on my blog (you guys do know there is a comment box, right???) that Mais Oui Paris had been nominated for a blog award given by Lexiophiles .  Here is what the voting page says:

 Give your vote to the most exciting, inspiring, open-minded blogger writing about his or her experience abroad.

I have no delusions that my little wet-behind-the ears and fly- by-the-seat-of-my-pants blog will win, but we must at least show up, oui?  To than end, I have added a voting button on the right-hand side of the blog.  If you feel inclined, please push it and show them that I do indeed have some peeps who love me, even if most of the ones on the street here are oblivious to my existence.

I am sorry to say that that’s all I’ve got for today- shameless self-promotion.

Thanks for being there for me, mes amies!

    Just voted – what do you win????

    • I don’t know- maybe 10,000 euros, or maybe just recognition on my blog? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s it. I didn’t really pay attention because i don’t expect to win- just wanted to show up! xoxoxo

    I voted! and you could easily watch the Artist in French …since it is a silent movie! There were only a handful of subtitles, and you could figure it out pretty easily. It was a strange movie..when I was watching it I felt like there was very little substance to the whole thing, and yet I could not stop thinking about it all the next day.
