A welcome reprieve

I'm back in Montréal from a ludicrous amount of travelling. It's been exciting and beautiful and grand, but I'm a domestic at heart. So I'm enjoying my cozy, cluttered home and it's just divine. I don't have to live out of a suitcase anymore! I can just sit in my armchair as the sun goes down and peruse my bookshelves.

I bought books as I travelled. Do you know how annoying it is to lug around a backpack full of hardcovers? I did, however, get some much neeeded exercise out of it.

makemyway is staying in my guest room right now. She's been an awfully good influence for someone who claims she can't relax. I have spent the past couple of days doing luxurious things. We've gone to Romados and bought some pastéis de Nata and ate them in Parc Lafontaine. I've become converted to the joys of roasted fennel. We've indulged in homemade strawberry ice cream, bagels with prosciutto, and peaches and cream. We climbed to the roof and watched fireworks. I haven't left the house except for small errands. And then I got to photograph someone drawing on a wall.


I never want to leave Montréal again. Which is patently untrue, but I'll stay for a while. I promise.

Yay for back in Montreal! I've got a week before I leave for Pennsic -- want to get together for lunch or dinner or something? Let me know!

Yes, I think that would be grand. My calendar says that I'm free tomorrow evening and all of Sunday.

I'm still not sure if I'm doing a "free at last" party tomorrow night, so let's aim for Sunday. Would you rather lunch or dinner?

Sunday at lunch is perfect. Why don't you pick the place and we'll lunch together?

To stay for a while? Why, I've already been here for three whole days!

hey i want to do those things with you!

When do you leave the city?

"And then I get to photograph someone drawing on a wall."

It was pretty awesome. The guys scribbling on the walls were hanging out with this old woman. They were singing and dancing together.

After you're done staying for a while, can you come back to SF or San Jose? Pweeeeeeeeeeeease?? I'll bake you cookies!

How very clever of you, sir. Cookies are a weakness of mine.

I was planning to go down to the Bay Area next year, but if I can get biscuits out of it, I certainly won't refuse.

I received it and will be giving you a call once I get this whirlwind of a life into some semblance of shape.

Yes, indeed. You should come over some time for tea. What are you doing next Thursday or Friday?

I'm off work at 19:00, so please feel free to drop by after that time.
28th Jul, 2006 15:29 (UTC)
Promise? I am wary.

Also, what a coincidence that you decide this the week before I leave for a while. Life is so unfair.

Oh dear.

Safe travels, my friend.
