Adventures and misadventures in France.

Celebrity gossip is not my first choice of reading material, but this week’s article about the Gwyneth Paltrow/Chris Martin split from the Telegraph offers a hilarious commentary on European-American relationships.

The Pitfalls of Marrying an American Woman

The evidence hits far too close to home :

To marry an American is to accept the word “woo!” into your life. The word is not in any dictionary, but is written deep inside an American’s heart and soul. To an American, if anything vaguely good is happening, one must emit a “woo”. Perhaps a baseball team has hit a baseball. Or a tray of cupcakes successfully made it from the kitchen to a living room table. Anything dimly positive can be greeted with a overly-loud, obnoxiously out-of-context: “WOOO! YEAH! Cupcakes! Awesome!”. It is insufferable.

Excuse me while I look up more recipes for cupcakes. Woo!

  1. Ha ha! Love it! WOO! 🙂

  2. Perfect! Excuse me now, but I’ve got to get out of my hippy dress and align my chakras, after drinking my balsamic, but green, urine tasting wellness shake and composing a flighty score on my Indian flute, before I make the 12-hour drive down to Barcelona. Woo-hoo!
