December in review

  • 5th Jan, 2007 at 2:16 PM

I was hoping for a small reprieve in December, but I should have known better. Through 2006, things had been progressively getting busier and busier until I felt I was about to burst.

It is now 2007 and I can look back happily at the previous year. Whew. So what was last month like?



Cute pottery
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

First I had to see rubythirtythree at the Salon des métiers d'art. I did a bit of shopping there, which turned out to be a good idea.



Angie Johnson

Then a vernissage at Headquarters Galerie et Boutique. I met Angie and Tyson, who run the store, and they are awfully nice. They run an exhibition every month or so which I'm going try to see.



On stage

Followed by seeing a drag show with ispyagirl and Mike, an old classmate from Earl Haig. We went to Cabaret Mado, which had lots of people that looked like they were having fun! It was just too outrageous for anything less.



Two chairs

I took some photos at jbailey's new place. The entire house was bare, so I got to roam around and take pictures of uncluttered rooms.



Skylight

Lunch with baprime at Café Santropol. It was the first time she'd ever been there, which is quite a treat. We ate sandwiches and drank milkshakes—they were delicious.



Neat dweeb
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

More shopping at the Souk@SAT. This time, I went with angorian and Damian. I showed them fun things and delicious things and they managed to get a ton of their gift shopping done.



Lesbian haircuts
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

Then we made the wonderful discovery of cheap Lesbian haircuts on Amherst. I am tempted to go there and check out their bikes.



Tower
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

I had a lazy Sunday brunch with le_maistre_e. We ate at John's, which is a little diner that serves a great meal at 1980s prices. I'm definitely going back! I also discovered that the Lachine canal is a gem, if you look hard enough.



Marble cheesecake

Dinner with vierge_en_trop, completed by puddings at Café l'Etranger.



Crème brulée
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

Followed by dinner at mricon's. He made an excellent borscht.



Dinner
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

Leading into the Canonical holiday dinner at Los Tios.



Mark Côté
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

Ironically placed next to the Goodbye NITI Montreal dinner.



Samba Elegua
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

I needed some exercise after all this eating, so I saw jedward play with Samba Elegua. He stayed with me, while his band did their gig for Noël dans le parc.



Gladstone & Ste-Catherine
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

Then it was more dinner at superfink's, with a nightcap of The muppet Christmas carol.



Felix
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

Followed by another dinner at tygrbabe's.



Dinner on the train
Originally uploaded by sfllaw.

After that, I got on the train to Toronto, where I spent a lot of time not behind the camera. Although digital cameras are now prevalent, I seemed to avoid getting myself not in front of them.

Knowing you, january won't be a quiet month either :)

Oh, and thanks for lending me the book. I enjoyed it tremendously, finishing it in about 4 days.

Hurray! I'm glad you liked it.

(Which book did I lend you again? I forgot.)

It's "Kitchen Confidential" by Anthony Bourdain.

In which case, you'll have to come by and borrow the next food book he wrote.

Would you be interested in this show which is happening tomorrow at 18:00?
angorian

Sorry, have plans already for today. I'm still not sure from reading that page what kind of show it is ... you'll have to let me know.

It was amusing. And the person who saw us taking the photograph tried to convince us to come inside for tea.

Hehe, you totally should have gone for it (the haircut and/or the tea)!
sfllaw

I probably would have, if I hadn't had previous arrangements.

Guess what ??
I found my camera, and with the weather being as gentle as it has been lately, we should do that Sunday morning thing again, very soon. This time, we'll both be camera-ready.

That is, if I fit into your schedule for January?

Call me. You do still have my number, right?

What about brunch this Sunday? That is, tomorrow?

Re: Guess what ??
Financially impossibe this week, 'cause it's my turn to pay. Next Sunday OK for you ? The 13th ?

Re: Guess what ??
Next Saturday, the 13th, is fine for me. Let's meet at 10:00 at John's?

Re: Guess what ??
Um, yeah, Saturday, that's what I meant. Yeah.

Sounds cool.

your photos are so pretty! :)

i am jealous of your camera. my camera sucks, big time. it's nearly 5 years old now. when i bought it, 2 megapixels what awesome. now you can get that kind of quality on a freaking cell phone! not to mention the fact that my cam uses a flashcard that holds 16 mb.
sfllaw

It is a decent camera, although anyone can take good pictures with any camera. You just have to practise.

My e-mail isn't working? Oh no! That's horrible.

Try sfllaw@gmail.com, which should work fine. Note the two Ls.
