a lot of broken parapluies.

we rolled back into halifax at 7 this morning, following a very, very long (and for me, slightly stressful) drive and a radical 3 days in montreal. we get to the mini city of a thousand lights at around 10 wednesday night, and after dropping everyone off at their respective weekend getaway locations, jess and i (accidently) catch city field at la sala rossa and meet up with the lovely kathy, who awesomely lives around the corner. kathy's apartment is beautiful and everything i hope my future apartment is. on thursday it's pouring rain but i meet up with melissa and jessica and buy some clothes anyway. we wander around st. catherine area for a bit and head home before the shows, most of which sort of prove sub-par: i think i went to 4 shows that night, and 1 of them was really good. without going into much detail, having a media or band pass doesn't guarantee you entry into shows. it sucks. friday kathy, her awesome roommate adrienne and i get together with laura, melissa and jessica and wander around the st. dennis/mont royal area. while kathy and adrienne are enjoying a very mature cup of coffee at a cafe down the street, the rest of us find ourselves in a gamer store losing our shit over singing and dancing mogwai. i wish i could privy you to the fantastic-ness of singing and dancing mogwai, but if you ever see me on the street, ask me about it and i'll give you a demonstration. we really should have just bought one. i wanted to see a bunch of shows that night but as i mentioned earlier, sometimes passes don't work. so after walking back and forth between 2 very-far-away-from-each-other venues, i get to see weird war and it's totally fucking nuts. saturday is a beautiful day and i spend it mainly inside. the norts arrive around 4 and we all go have dinner at casa del popolo, across the street from and sister to la sala rossa. kathy and i come back before the show and i paint my toenails for the first time in my life. it was fun being a girl for a few minutes. the norts show is amazing and ted leo play every song i wanted to hear. it was really good to see michael and i miss him a ton. they get back to halifax on wednesday the 12th (i think) and play the pop explosion the next day.

i can't love montreal bagels the way i love new york bagels. i hope you understand, montreal.

it's a beautiful day in halifax today.

I miss you and I'm glad you had a good time. I didn't know you were painting your toenails for the first time!

Are you going to be in Halifax this Christmas?
