This is his little apartment.
Guillaume made a very nice little corner of the world for him. They think he is happy, although he didn't eat yesterday. Angela put a picture of the two of them next to his apartment so he doesn't get lonely when they're not home.
Angela gave him a little food this morning. He didn't eat when she was watching, so she went to the couch and decided to blog and have her coffee so she wouldn't bother him. She'll check to see if he ate his 4 food pellets in a little while.
Guillaume is trying to find a babysitter for when we go to France. He must be fed every day, twice a day. They don't want to come home to a floating Petit Robert.

Last Friday night, Angela and Guillaume went to Petit Robert in the middle of yet another snowstorm. Yes, more snow. Lots of it! After making sure they had keys, money and lipstick (only for Angela, of course), they took a taxi to make their 8:30 reservation, and made it safely in the snow. They jumped over slush filled puddles and ran into the restaurant. Guillaume spoke to the hostess, who responded to him in French. Then the general manager brought them to their table, and he is French as well! He and Guillaume spoke about something (Angela realizes she still cannot understand French very well at all).
They had champagne, of course. They ordered their dinners off of a menu that had so many delightful choices. http://www.petitrobertbistro.com/Menus/MenuFrame1.htm
Guillaume got the escargots as a starter. He kindly gave one to Angela. It was delicious.
Angela got the "trio of pate", which were so good as well. It took her a long time to eat because she was savoring every bite, so Guillaume got one more escargots... Angela was happy because she had one more as well!
For dinner, Guillaume had the andouiette with a bouidin noir, and Angela had the beef bourgignon. She forgot to take a picture until she had eaten some of it... She also tried both of Guillaume's dishes, and maybe she wouldn't get it for herself, but she liked it!
They had an amazing bottle of wine that was perfect with the meal. Guillaume chose very well!
After the very long, relaxing dinner, they put on their scarves, gloves, coats and hats, and made their way back out into the snow. Guillaume was going to meet a colleague because it was his last night at his job, and Angela was going home. Angela took the first cab, and with a kiss to Guillaume she was off.
The taxi drove down Commonwealth Ave, and with the snow falling and the white lights on the trees, it was a beautiful ride home.
Unfortunately, Angela left Guillaume with the only set of keys. So she took another taxi back to Newbury Street to get the keys from Guillaume. Finally, she made it back home!
The next bistro Angela & Guillaume will go to will be in France! In 24 days!

BUT, Guillaume won $50 in a Superbowl Pool! It was his first bet and his first win. He even got a little yellow ribbon. He was very proud.
Angela and Guillaume stayed at the Superbowl Party until just after half-time. Then they took a taxi home and watched the rest of the game from their couch, and they were so happy (until the Patriots sadly lost).
The news reporters are very gloomy today, but at least there were no riots like when the Red Sox won!

The New England Patriots are playing the New York Giants. The game starts at around 6:15 p.m. Angela and Guillaume will leave at around 5:30 for the party at the Ritz (wahoo!).
Stay tuned to see what happens!
