post, jealousy and pick n mix knickers

Filed under: misc — petiteanglaiseparis @ 1:01 pm

I have posted today over here, just in case you were missing me…

The post is dedicated to the lovely Anna, for obvious reasons.

Can I just say how miffed I am not to have been nominated to participate in this. But as some very good virtual friends of mine are involved, please pay them a visit and watch them rip each other to shreds!

Blogmeet – Saturday 25 June

The second expat blogmeet will be in the form of a daytime picnic (kids/family/friends welcome) and also an evening drinks do. It seems to have been re-named “The Pick Knickers Expat Blogger Meet Picnic”, so I shall be buying a new pair of undies for the occasion.

I will be sending an email out this weekend to everyone who showed an interest/came last time/we would like to see there.

If however, you want to come and don’t receive word about this, contact me, Katia or Antipo and we will send you the info. Commenters/lurkers/children/friends all welcome. The more, the merrier!


  1. I would just like to point out that the Pick Knickers idea is Katia’s. My innocent and pure mind would never have come up with such naughtiness!

  2. Innocent and pure are not words I would have associated with the lovely (but potty mouthed) Antipo Déesse, so I’m not entirely sure I believe you…

  3. Ack! I have to work that day and my colleague is on vacation, so no chance of catching a TGV to this one…

  4. Not sure if I made it clear last time, so I’ll express it more obviously this time: pretty pretty please, count me in for one or both.

  5. Anne – fear not, you and everyone else who expressed an interest in comments and email (and even a few who didn’t who I want to see) are on the list I passed to Katia.

  6. I’m very much so relieved to see that it isn’t just me that caught the knickers thing…I just happened to be the one that thought the color of the day is pink!

  7. I think I should clarify things. I was INNOCENTLY discussing the picnic with Antipo, and talked about “picnickers”. I then defined “picnicker – someone who picnics. Not someone who picks knickers.
    Although it is possible to be both at the same time. ” Thus the term “Pick Nickers” was born. I just hope that there will be people who picnic at the Pick Nickers picnic, as opposed to people who pick knickers (although those people wearing pink knickers are more than welcome).

    Hmm. I think that perhaps I have had too much coffee today.

  8. I shall be hopping a plane just to check out the knickers! And bob’s cute pink ones as well ;)

    (In reality, I only wish I could be there)

  9. I’ve got the cutest ones you can imagine, Juliana. Now if I can only find the perfect pair of low rise jeans to wear I’ll be set!

  10. when did the blogger’s expat meeting become the dirty mummies’s meeting?

    And thank heavens I can’t go to this one.

  11. Many air kisses for the dedication.

    You have no idea how good it is to be in my new mouse free flat (and never will be moused again because yes, that’s right, mice can’t climb stairs. No they can’t.)

  14. Petite, I think I might be able to make the Pick Knickers Bloggers Meet, so if you could send me the details I would appreciate it! Thanks :)
