The arrival of 25+cm of fresh powder means...SLEDDING ON MT. ROYAL!!! I and 4 friends went out tonight for some quality sledding enjoyment! The run-down of the night:

- Dinner at John's awesome place.
- At least 2 epic wipeouts.
- Watching John's lanky limbs go flying every time he flew off the sled.
- Watching other people sledding doing the same thing.
- Seeing Jenny and Chelsea land upside down on top of each other in a snowbank.
- Laughing way too much.

Not so Fun:
- Getting stuck in a snowbank that went up to my chest (though much hilarity did ensue...).
- Covered in so much snow that my jeans froze and my gloves got wet and shrank.
* Consequently limbs were wet and frozen (but limbs aren't *really* important right?)
- Falling down 3 marble steps right before heading out.
* My butt is still suffering. D:

Am currently laying on sofa in warm bathrobe and fuzzy fleece blanket. Also contemplating getting cookies as have just finished tea.


Oh dear.

Alright, so [ profile] catlein was evil enough to have everyone read this at the Christmas party tonight and I had many requests to put it up on LJ, so this is to please the crazy insane masses.

Summary: This was written as a parody to Québecois folk tales par kinda-sorta request of [ profile] catlein. It turned into a display of how people should NOT write fanfic; a.k.a it portrays almost every single thing about bad fanfic that makes people want to spork their eyes out.

Anaïs and the Vampire: A True Modern Québecois Folk Tale )

And now that you've read that, would you like some bleach?

P.S. For those of you unfamiliar with Québecois culture, you can find a good guide to the man referenced here.

Birthdays can be quite enjoyable when you're with the right people.

Especially when they give you cantaloupes.

"The classification of the primates into prosimians and anthropoids does not strictly reflect the patterns of genetic relationships among the animals in the suborders."

How Humans Evolved, Fourth Edition
Robert Boyd, Joan B. Silk

The instructions:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Take one that's actually next to you.

Did I ever say just how much Kurt rocks my world? And if I have said it before, I'll say it again. You. Freakin'. Rock.

Oh, and Logan, I guess you're cool too. :-P

What do I just adore? Ice skating with Frances and Lisa. Especially when it's at the Old Port at night, with all the pretty lights and right by the river. Even though we aren't the world's best ice skaters, I'd say we had fun. Even though once Lisa twitched and ended up with me sprawled on my back on the ice, it was all good.

The funny thing is, when we were finished Frances and I stated how we were posting about our night in LJ. Yeah, I know.

It was just so pretty! Vieux Montréal is so great at night. They also played awesome techno at the rink and had colorful lights going, it was wicked. Sure it was cold, sure a lot of the little kids could skate better than we could, but that's not the point. Just that I got to be completely ridiculous with two awesome people is always worth it.

Hooray for great people, and hooray for Montréal.

Finally arrived back from London yesterday afternoon. What a day that was! I was so disoriented for a while, because I couldn't believe that just that morning, I was half drunk with my aunt at Trafalgar Square. Yeah, my aunt and I know how to party like it's 2006. Mmhmm.

A ton of McGill students were on my flight. Of all places to meet people you know, I never would've expected London Heathrow Terminal 3 to be the place. I ran into Nick Christofi and Ali!! Both were on transfer flights (from Cyprus and Saudi, respectively) and it was amazing. We ended up travelling back together and had an interesting time with all our bags on the bus and Metro. I love chance meetings!

For the first time in my entire life, I was homesick. For Montréal, of course. Most of the time in the UK, I just wanted to be back but I knew no one was there. This doesn't mean I didn't have fun while I was there, but still. Wouldn't you rather be somewhere else than sleeping on a sofabed with your mother?

Have now fully unpacked and am dining on Ribena and Kinder eggs. I have too much crap. And how did I end up with over $10 in change?!

I have also learned to dislike Bank Holidays. There are always Bank Holidays on the days I actually need the bank.

Now time to dig up some dinner! And something to look forward to: coffee with Kurt.
