Calling all French

Okay, here I am making introductions again.

jenni_snake, meet alinewrites, babycakesin, castalie, crazybutsound (who you already know), french_hobbit, greedy_dancer, and morgared. Aline, Babycakes, Mouse, Jem, Rosie, GD, and Anne, please meet my friend Jen.

Jen is coming to France in a few weeks to take up a teaching position (and in her free time, to immerse herself in the runup to the French presidential election), and she could use advice about housing. She posted here: http://jenni-snake.livejournal.com/54809.html

You guys will like each other.

For the HP-lovers among you, ask Jen to tell you how she came up with her username.

For all you world travelers, Jen's lived in China, Moscow, Kyiv/Kiev (she was there this past January when Putin turned off the gas to Ukraine). She spent 10 days visiting me this summer.

She doesn't bat an eye at slash (but she can tell you about that if she wants to).

And there are one or two other pertinent details that some of you have in common.

So, anyway, go meet her. Tell her I sent you. :-)

I'm good; just busy. My department moved floors a couple of weeks ago (to our permanent home, finally) and I'm still trying to get things organised the way I want them. But at least the boxes are all gone at last.

Jen's terrific. I met her last autumn quite by chance because of a mutual interest obsession with French politics, and things took off from there. :-)

I know she will, especially as she's a political junkie (like me). I'm going to do my best to pay her a visit -- maybe next March or April. Hopefully the Lyon contingent (Rosie and Jem, but no Aline, alas, who's decamped to Corsica) might be able to come up for a day. And what about you? Another trip home planned anytime soon?

Oh, wonderful, you have a bloody dagger icon all for me! Really, Jen, you shouldn't have ....

Here I was trying to be helpful and all (*sniffle*) and point out areas of common interest, which is what you're supposed to do when to introduce people to each other, and what do I get? Death threats. *long-suffering sigh*

Anyway, you and Babycakes have more than an interest in HP in common; she's also teaching, although it's in New Zealand. And you also have China in common. :-)

*placates you with pitiful kitten icon* (Although the one I really need is Tavi's scared kitten in a basket, lol.)
