I did a routine update on my computer, then it found another update to do- only this time my computer didn’t register that it did indeed posses a hard drive and wouldn’t start up correctly. Cue computer on the fritz.
On the bright side, we toured the Cointreau factory today. It was amazing. We began with a video about the history of Cointreau, transitioned to the actual factory, then the ‘museum’ above the packaging plant. Dita von Teese is their spokesperson- who knew? Not France, that’s for sure because people aren’t allowed to advertise liquor. They also bottle a liquor that is a mix of many other different liquors. The price tag you might ask? $22,000/bottle. Noiiice. They said that Jay-Z is a really big fan. For dinner we had: vegetable soup, ratatouille, arrico- navy beans, Mexican BBQ chicken, cheese and bread, and pineapple with a sweeter type of bread.
