My hometown is in the NY Times!

Check it out! (Although you might have to register for free to read the article).
Who knew that my hometown of Strasbourg would become suddenly hip enough to be in the NY Times? (And yes, I know most of the bars mentioned in the article).
And do you remember the picture of my high school that I posted in April? Well, apparently the NY Times likes my high school too: it's in the slideshow accompanying the article! Although they call it the "Lycee school", which literally means "high school school". First of all, my high school has an actual name : the Lycee des Pontonniers. Secondly, my hometown is the fifth largest town in France, and , as such, has more than a dozen high schools. This caption makes it sound like there's only one... Anyway, I can find more than one mistake in this article, but I'll stop being negative, ok? Cause my hometown is in the NY Times!!

This reminds me of a pet peeve of mine. I've been quiet about this because the knit blog community is a happy, positive bunch. As I've lived both in France and in the US, I'm always interested in "American in Paris"-type blogs. And here's the thing that drives me crazy: the majority of these bloggers complain about how silly and annoying the French are! (The lovely exception to this rule is Aimee). I remember one, now defunct blog, made fun of how weird French keys looked. Yes, *keys* WTF?! Ooh, it just makes me want to leave nasty comments! And this weekend, I did, I left a snarky comment on one of these blogs. I'm afraid to check my email now...

What do you do when you read a post that just pushes your buttons?
Leave a snarky comment. The author has an idiotic opinion. You must rectify it.
You are a lady. After all, your mother always told you "if you have nothing nice to say, shut up".
