Like any other Sunday

This Sunday, like many before it, was pretty un-special. I got up and dragged myself outside to the market at Place des Fêtes to stock up on veggies, but also bought one of those delicious roast chickens that they are always selling at the butcher stands. I didn't realize just how big it was until they put it in my hands. Back home, I tore all the meat of that sucker and ate it all up, and I wasn't hungry for the rest of the day. Next time, I'm going to make a killer warm chicken salad.

Otherwise, the rest of the day was spent working on my blog, updating things, filling out applications for various things, and otherwise being productive.

The one big event of the day was the first round of the presidential elections here in France. The end result was that Sarkozy and Ségolène Royal made the cut and will be facing each other in the final run-off election in a few weeks' time. For many socialists (the analogue to Democrats or NDP in the US or Canada, respectively), this was already a great victory. The right-wing / left-wing showdown allows them to gather all of the leftist votes that had been previously split up among the many left-wing candidates, while also taking advantage of some of the centrist voters who are scared of Sarkozy. That much being said, there's no telling where this is going to go now...
