Marcel in SF

Even though Marcel is far away in a new city where the weather has been ridiculously beautiful lately and there are oodles of new places to go and explore, poor Marcel has been hanging around the flat and drinking himself silly.

Sadly, I cannot say I am surprised. I had hoped that a change in locale and weather might shake up my friend the frog's ever-present blues but sadly, he seems as grumpy as ever. I got this update from his flatmate Sarah:

Hope you will not be snowed under. Be strong for Marcel! He needs you now. Things are not so well, as these photos will tell. As you will see, he has been up to his old naughty tricks - so self defeating!

I find him in the doorway most mornings, passed out with a bottle. All the other animals ADORED him, and gathered round when he first appeared, but Olivia the pig loves him most of all, and with every squeeze from her his heart grows smaller, and nastier.

She loves to pounce on him, and looks for him everywhere! He has tried to hide, and even disguise himself, but she always finds him! He is quite miserable, and she finds that wonderful. Poor Marcel!

If Marcel needs a guide around the Mission, let me know. Chapulines (grasshoppers) are popular in Oaxacan restaurants, and I bet I could get him to smile by offering him a big plate of them.

oooh, you are so wise Junk Thief! You know all the good places to go. I am gonna tell Marcel's chaperone about this as I think you two would get along swimmingly even if MArcel would most likely be a bit down in the dumps. what else in new, right?

i am craving some MExican food right now but that could be because it is gray, dull and drizzly here and I miss spices.

Sachie! Goma and Marcel would no doubt be fast friends. i can imagine that Marcel would adore Goma's occasionally haughty nature. Plus, they both like to drink from the toilet.
