Hiking, Travelling and Dreaming

This was intended to be my thoughts on travelling, but I'll have to tame my wanderlust for a while longer....

My cousin and I had a great time at the parade. I got the best view of it and Matt did a great job kicking out ice cream salesmen without official concessionary licenses and keeping the crowds off the street. I tried but I guess I wasn't intimidating enough.

I got this pic of Montreal Chris for Jayne who is absent for the festivities. I'll post others, but bloggerbot (the picture-posting program isn't the easist to use).

Matt said this has inspired him to do more volunteer work, he had no idea it could be so much fun. Maybe that's the problem these days, we don't do anything intrinsically (myself included). But when it's not a chore and you're doing something because you actually want to, it's more fun!!!

Want $100 worth of free drinks??

The divers/cité parade is in need of volunteers for their pride parade next Monday night July 25th. All you have to do in the parade is help security and give info to the audience. As a thank you, all volunteers will receive a t-shirt and a voucher that can be used towards beverages at the festival.

If you're interested... email me and I will fill you in:)

Check it out!

My blackmailed room feels like a sauna... Even with the fan facing me at number 3... It'll be a relief to get out of the heat when/if I go home. It's muggy and sticky outside, but not sunny. I'm off and not sure what I'll do today. I wouldn't mind if it cooled off for a day or two.

We got a paper that a company may want to use our apt to film a movie "Naked Josh 3". Only problem is that it's during, half of the first semester!!! Not sure what the girls'd say to that.

Family Reunion/Camping

This weekend I attended the annual Shearing family picnic in St Remi, near Tremblant. I'd never gone before (because of cadet camp, B.C. etc) but I figured that at least it could get me out of the city...

I enjoyed being away from the city and my flat, which I haven't left in quite a while. (Editor's note: I'm not a hermit, but I mean I've been in Mtl for a while).

I learned where I get my obsessive organization skills from, and that I could be a lot worse... (like my aunts!!!). I also found out that my dad was the cool rebelious brother growing up, or so my uncles claim. Logically, it suggests that my big bro Phil may end up listening to Celine Dion and having a family someday.

Nonetheless, the camping, swimming and kayaking was great. It'll be even more fun when we canoe down the Restigouche river in August (Hg and Critter and whoever else).

Au Revoir....
