France

TPAC 2012 was in Lyon. I took Erin, and we bookended the trip with weekends in Paris. Lindsay was visiting England at the time and popped down to spend one of those weekends with us.

France: Je suis en vous.

We drank some awful things and some amazing things. Sherry Butt, an unbelievably wonderful cocktail bar in Paris, had just recently opened. I make a point of returning every time I'm in town.

Why yes, I did just order a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster at Le @DernierBar avant la fin du monde.

#

I'm reasonably certain I've had more types of Japanese whiskey in Paris than I ever managed to try while in Japan. Not complaining.

#

I remember TPAC that year very fondly; we got up to a number of shenanigans that week, including my first visit to Au Petit Bouchon Chez Georges and an extremely memorable dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant whose name I've forgotten.

We have always been at war with fragmentainers

Well, it's official: @thejohnjansen is my hero.

OH: "Sorry, @sideshowbarker, I don't understand 'trackbot: reload my gin can'."

Odds of me including a link to http://vimeo.com/52750334 in my #TPAC2012 trip report? I'm guessing it's around 100%, give or take 0.

While in Lyon I introduced Erin to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, but unfortunately I only got one blurry photo of the two of them. It was Halloween, so Erin's dressed as a witch (wearing a witche's hat she knit and felted herself).

I posted tons of photos of the trip on Flickr, and relatively few to Instagram.
