as some of you heard on the show a week or two ago, we are doing another postcard exchange! there are twenty postcards waiting to be sent to twenty of you!
those of you who are in the right time zone to watch us record live got the jump on everybody else, but we just may have a few left...
so if YOU want to get a postcard from US - send an email with your postcard request and your address to katiaandkyliemac[at]gmail[dot]com and get the ball rolling. we'll pop your postcard in the mail after we receive yours, and don't forget to let us know when you have received it!
we are looking forward to plastering the walls of the Not-Coffee-Table-Studio (TM) with your postcards.
"Why are we still using the Minitel to charge bank cards? Every other person on the planet (outside France) is using the internet!"
"But it really does work well. Why would we change?"
"Horses worked well too. Why did we decide we needed cars?"
"Well, we might just go back to horses, you know."
It is impossible to reason with the French.
Including our Zoom, the borrowed popper stoppers, mikes and mike stands, and, of course, the Muffito(TM).
Dear guy on the train,
Have you considered practicing your trumpet in an open air space rather than on the train?
Cos, um, even though I appreciate you trying, it's really hard to play a trumpet softly.
ps. of course, I had to sit near you, because I'm too curious for my own good. And your hat was kindof cool.
We need you. Again. (When do we not?)
For one of our dastardly 'up-our-sleevsies' plans, we need your melodious voices, chers auditeurs!
What can you do to help us out?
Send us a 'T-Shirt Idea' or a 'Dear'! Not sure what that entails? You can listen to the first few seconds of any of the prior episodes to find out.
How can you send us one? It's easy.

The management reserves the right to use the audio clips sent and by sending said audio clip you give k&k permission to use said clip in their shows.
there are many things one hears about france.
and then one arrives here, spends some time here, and finds out that there are things that one has heard about France that are patently not true.
for example, i give you, Lies About France #6:
There are no bugs.
because, as the (very itchy) mosquito bites on my ankle can testify - there ARE.
which begs the question:
What do the French (well, most europeans for that matter) have against screens?
now please excuse me while i go to buy some mosquito netting tent thing to put over my bed before the soldes are over...
As always, we've got a little something up our sleevesies and We Need You!
Be a part of the show! It's easy - all you have to do is call in to our Skype number (just add katiaandkyliemac as your friend) and say:
"This is (insert your name here) from (insert location and/or blog name here) and you are listening to Katia and Kyliemac!"
That's all! These bumpers will be used in upcoming episodes of K&K - but you'll never know exactly when, so you'll just have to listen!

If you didn't catch the "k&k record with frog after-party" that happened on the cameras last weekend (around 2am france time, yes really), you missed out on the following : baguette-inspired pole dancing, peep kisses, Symphony cuddles, croaky throats, gratuitous cleavage shots, tiara touting and heart-felt karaoke numbers. The rest, I can't remember and is probably better left unsaid.
We're just glad that the Queen Mum wasn't around to see it (or maybe she was and she's too embarrassed to say anything).
This weekend, whilst recording episode 243 and accompanied by the delicious Frog, we unveiled a super secret project we've been working on : the Not Coffee Table Studio (NCTS)! Tastefully decorated, with comfy seating (for the hosts, not the guest(s), yet...), the NCTS is now the official k&k studio! And boy does it look professional. When you overlook the empty wine glasses, massive amounts of peeps and random baguettes lying on the floor, of course.
The Muffin Man made good use of the wide angle lens for this shot! Make sure you go and check out all the other photos he took of the inauguration shenaniganry!
ps. You can also sponsor an item in the NTCS too if you want!
*please note: nicolas is pronounced "knee-koe-lah" in french (rhyming with ricola), not "ni-co-las" as it is in the anglophone dialects. not that the author of this blog post would ever have made that mistake herself. ahem.
Dear Mr. G.,
Dropping the occasional Latin word or phrase into ordinary French conversation does not make you cool. In fact, it may explain why you're having difficulties with the ladies.
