Houseguests in Québec

The last 4 days in my little apartment on Sainte-Angèle street were spent with these 3 friends. Aude is on the left, she's French, an exchange student in Montreal this past year. We met in October. The Université de Québec a Montreal had a weekend up at their outdoor center near Mont Tremblant for anyone who wanted to help them sweep out their cabins for winter, and so my roommate Rachid, being a student there, brought me along, and almost everyone else there was a French exchange student. So that's how I know Aude (and others) and now her year is up and she's going back to Ardèche, so before leaving she came up from Montreal to visit me in Québec along with Manuela and Lucie, two friends of hers. This was taken two nights ago. We lit a bunch of candles and put them all together in the living room to have a candle-campfire.
Other highlights: chesnut spread from Ardèche, a bunch of concerts, delicious crêpes, talking about Nichiren Buddhism with Manuela, and singing along to "Eternal Flame" by the Bangles.
We're all laughing in the picture, because when the timer in the camera went off, it made a rooster sound! Weird camera.

Woah! People I don't know commenting on my blog. What the heck? But not in a bad way, I mean, the more the merrier. Hi guys.
Um, so Christopher, yeah, you totally should get out to Montreal sometime. But then, I should get out to the west coast, too. Right, so I'm about to go check out your poetry. And all you other slackers should go check out Chris' poetry too. Put some art in your day.
And pinkandroses: San Diego? I'm so curious as to how you found this blog. But anyway, I am lucky, totally, but if you mean like...uh, anyway it was a total PG visit. Haha.

In closing: Happy Gilmore is hilarious.

How did i find your blog you say? Well actually I don't know. It just kinda popped up on my screen. And who cares if it's PG, you were still surrounded in the grand scheme of things that's all that matters :)
