Skinny Saturday 15

Well, another week has come and gone. This was my first full week back at work and it was long. I'm glad the weekend is finally here. We went out last night for drinks with Shaun and Mary (Don and Mar unfortunately couldn't make it). Was good to see them again post-Italy. We shared our memories and had some good laughs. Later on, George and Barb dropped by our place with a bottle of wine and we gave them the low-down on the trip. Was great to see them, too.

I was going to go to the farmers' market this morning, but couldn't drag myself out of bed early enough to get there before all the basil was gone, so I skipped it. Shaun and I have vowed to start going again on a regular basis next week.

Tomorrow, we go to Montréal for 3 nights! YAY! We normally wouldn't go away again so soon after a big trip, but we are in a situation where we have to use these tickets or lose them. We were supposed to go to Montréal last July on aeroplan tickets, but we had to cancel that trip as my mother was just getting out after almost 2 weeks in the hospital and I had to be around. When you cancel such tickets, you pay a fee and you have to use them within one year, hence our quick jaunt to the big city. We're looking forward to visiting with Maurice and seeing his new digs. We hope to see another friend who also lives in the city, but we are having a difficult time connecting with him - we've been playing phone tag for a month now! And we definitely didn't plan it that way, but we'll be in Montréal for St. Jean Baptiste day (June 24), which is a big holiday in Québec. And we'll definitely have to make time to go to the peelers! Montréal is famous for it's hunky male strippers! Hope you're ready boyz!

And speaking of boyz, I give you Skinny Saturday 15:

Looking forward to seeing you guys! I'll be at the airport to pick you up tomorrow night.

Speaking of peelers, I was in Vancouver back in 1991 where I saw some, and the funniest thing was that there was one who, from a distance, looked a lot like you, Jeff. When I told Brad that upon my return, he jokingly reply, "So that's what he's been up to!" :)

See you tomorrow!

Hey Maurice! Re tomorrow night, Brad has sent you a couple of facebook messages... Hope you received them!

A pronto!

Crap! Just noticed this message and you're right, Jeff: I didn't get Brad's last e-mail and now it's too late since you're probably at the F'ton airport by now. I'll just go to the PET airport anyway...
