I do like the "chic" zone!!! Very good idea, it may draw the posh people in!
It is very funny to read your encounter with the fortune teller! I also had a few similar experiences with things not actually coming up! I would never dare to get in something like that. Though, some people can tell something is about to happen to a certain person; like I blogged a while ago about a friend that had his own business, and a gipsy came to him in the street and said to him "oh, poor thing you are" and she went off. The next day, some Jehovah witnesses came to his friends flat, he opened, and the woman said blablabla, he said no thanks, and she said, oh, well, I am sorry about all that; I will pray for you, my brother" and he just told her he wasn't interested in people praying for him! And he didn't understand all that was happening. A week later, he signed a contract with an american firm which was promissing...And that was the end. He went bankrupt. (20 years ago)
