Well, here I am again. And look, less than two months between posts this time! Go me!
Much has happened since the end of March. School ended, exams and papers came and went but much more excitingly, I went to Montreal! I stayed with my ex-roommate Pracha which was really fun, we got to cook together just like old times! We did tons of shopping, though I think I only bought 3 things. They’re cool things though! Also did lots of eating out, especially breakfast (well brunch really). Gotta love brunch. I also got to see Kate and her apartment just before she moved out of it. It was really nice seeing her before she graduated and left the country forever :P We really didn’t do any touristy things, unless you count wandering up St. Laurent (and down Mont-Royal where we went to Meow and Pracha got a shirt made that says “Tiny but Tough!” which, if you know Pracha, is very appropriate!). But that’s okay, I wasn’t going to be a tourist.
Then Pracha and I flew back to Winnipeg together (she used to live here too, but her family moved to London, ON in the spring of first year) and she stayed here for a week. She split her time between my house and a couple other friends’ places which worked out well. We had lots of fun showing each other our old schools and neighbourhoods among other things.
I started work that same week, we got back on Tuesday and I started on Thursday. Which is good and bad. I’m very excited about all the money I’m going to make this summer, but the prospect of almost 4 full months of working full time is less exciting.
Details about recent events… Saw Mean Girls on Friday with Brennan, Louise, Rebecca and Chris. It was great! I’d heard good things and wasn’t disappointed. Saturday afternoon I spent with my parents and aunt and uncle who were in town. We had lunch at Just Desserts in St. Boniface and then wandered around the Exchange for awhile. It was fun, I never go to the Exchange!
Then Saturday night Seonaid, Megan, Chelsea and I saw Troy! My icon is in honour of the movie. I don't think I've ever used a different icon before, so this is exciting for me :P (Edit: I can't see the icon, can anyone else? This makes me sad. Help?) Anyway, we were supposed to go on Friday afternoon, but the silly ticketmaster people decided to put the finger eleven tickets on sale then (but yay finger eleven concert! July 8, I can’t wait!). We had originally planned to see the 8:30 show, but ended up at a 10:30 one because the earlier ones were sold out. So to kill an hour or so we headed to Perkins which worked out well and was cool cause we got to see the rain and lightning and stuff. It was exciting. Troy was great! I was afraid it was going to be bad after having read a few reviews, but it wasn’t. I didn’t remember the Iliad well enough to be disturbed by most of the changes they made to the plot, and it was quite entertaining. The big fight scene between Hector and Achilles was really cool too. Add to that Brad Pitt running around in a skirt for most of the movie and a few scenes with him nearly naked, and what more could a girl want? lol (I feel like I’m leaving myself open to something there, but I’m going to ignore it.)
Last night the aforementioned Mean Girls group plus Jeff headed to Earl’s for appetizers and drinks. It was lots of fun, though I had to leave earlier than I would have liked since I had to work this morning. But still, good times. Great to have Chris and Rebecca in town.
This week should have some fun too. And soon it’ll be the long weekend! Woo hoo! Very much looking forward to that.
I think this may be the longest entry I’ve ever written. Craziness. I hope it didn’t bore everyone!
