Professional Woman seeks a deux piece in Paris. No smaller than 30m2 as it appears she has a lot of accumulated crap. Oh and just in case, if it can have a cave that would be really handy because then if she doesn’t get her act together and sell some of the furniture she’s not going to need she can store them.
She would really like to live in pretty much the same area, across the road, the building next door, anywhere around the Montmartre area, but obviously at the bottom of the hill because she can’t afford to live at the top of the hill. Alternatively she wouldn’t mind going back to the 14th as she already knows of a hairdresser there and wouldn’t have to go through that terrifying ordeal of bad haircuts again. Another alternative is somewhere near a really good Indian restaurant.
She doesn’t want to live in the 19th or 20th because it’s just too damn far away. She’s not really into the 12th either and if it’s the 13th it has to be before Place d’Italie. She doesn’t really like the 15th as most of it is too residential and boring and the 16th should be bombed out of existence along with all the fur coated, poodle bearing, white haired ladies who think that just because of their very existence they should be first for everything. The majority of the 17th, (where she doesn’t live) is a bit like that too but not quite as bad. So that leaves the 1st (ha ha like she's ever gonna find anything in her price range), 2nd (ditto), 3rd (ditto), 4th (ditto), 5th (ditto), 6th (ditto), 7th (ditto), 8th (pushing it), 9th (pushing it) 10th (mmm, would have to do some serious reconnaissance there before I could say for sure), 11th (ditto).
Right that should do it don't you think? I love flat hunting and just to make things really difficult I’m pissing off on holiday right in the middle of it all. Still inadvertently I have done the right thing as the city will be empty July 15th – August 15th whereas I would be here contemplating homelessness and not being able to contact anyone. Meanwhile I need to get my dossier ready, three of this and three of that and this and that and blurgh, blurgh, blurgh, blurgh...
