I'm Finally Becoming French.

I've had my citizenship for over 5 years now. And yet in some ways, I'll never be totally French...

* I'm not a big fan of cheese.
* I prefer Coke to wine. Dr Pepper? Even better.
* I still make "le" and "la" mistakes on a regular basis.
* I don't think root beer tastes like medicine.
* I'll never see the appeal of the movie Les Bronzés or the actor Louis de Funès, and I don't appreciate what passes for "French humor."

BUT... I think I've made great strides towards embracing my citizenship now that I am the proud owner of this:

That's right, a yogurt-maker.

My French friend tells me that makes me a French woman in the '60s, but I'll take what I can get.

So far we've made chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla yogurt. I don't actually like yogurt, so I leave the eating of it to the males of the house, but it's very easy to make, will save us a little bit of money, and we won't be stuck with the weird flavors like coconut or banana they stick in commercial packs of yogurt.

I didn't know such things existed. We should get one; my wife and kid eat a *ton* of yogurt.

Louis de Funes is funny. Though not exactly highbrow funny, most of the time. Netflix finally carries "The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob" now, so we watched it a while back.
