I wouldn't say I hate Chalet Suzanne; it's just that I'm having some
cognative dissonance between my expectations, Bunny's enthusiam, and
the reality of the place.
In fact, out entire dinner conversation this evening was spent talking
about the right word to describe Chalet Suzanne. I offered my
description, but Bunny felt the connotations were too negative, and offered
a few alternatives. But I felt the connotations of the words she suggested
were more negative than the word I used, and countered with some
alternatives. Bunny countered that those were too negative and suggested
some other ones, which I felt were more negative than what I was
Yes, our entire dinner conversation was spent trying to compromise on a
word that describes Chalet Suzanne, and about the best we can agree on is
It has “character.”
