a last hurrah
I'm sitting in the living room as I write this. All the lights are out and there's only the hum of A Knight's Tale playing on the TV, the keys on Cassie's laptop clicking as I type, and the occasional laughter from three girls.
Oh yes. Cassie's laptop. I'm with Cassie! In Montreal. I couldn't mention this before, but for Cassie's birthday last week, my mom and I made the long drive to surprise her. It was...grand. And the past few days have been spent with her in and about Montreal, meeting her friends and coworkers here, being shown around her favorite places, and generally having a good time being with my best friend again for a couple days. I love her, amen.
This has been my last summer hurrah, really. These past few months have been full of adventures--literally chock-full. And in a few days I start school, so with this week, this trip, this small, short, relaxing time, my summer comes to a full end. But more on that later, because I have different stories and pictures for ya'll (Cassie: "You must take photos of me; I need new profile pictures!").
Also, I'm coming home Monday, and bringing with me Clara. Clara is a friend of Cassie's (and now mine) who lives here in Quebec, but she's originally from France. She's spent some time with us here and it was spontaneously decided that she would come home with us for two weeks before school starts for her to practice her English and have an adventure of her own. So yeah. That happened. And it should be an exciting time. I'm sure you'll hear all about it.
How crazy awesome is that? We met Clara, joked about her coming to live with us for awhile, and now I'm bringing home an adopted French sister for awhile. Dude. People need to be spontaneous like this more often.
Also, it's really weird to be watching A Knight's Tale, because my only other acquaintance with it is when I was driving home from New York City and the girls were watching it in the back seat. So I've heard the whole thing, but haven't seen it. It's odd, because I've already formed opinions on it after hearing it all. Strange, and funny. Anyway.
Tell me about your lives. Summer ending? School starting? Adventures happening? Okay bye.
