My parents came to visit me this weekend from Montreal, it having been my birthday last week but them having been unable to visit last weekend. They only stayed overnight (at a hotel this time) and we spent most of the time going around buying me things that I don't usually buy because the store is too far away/things are too big to carry home (like the 24-can carton of V8 that I love – hang on, I'm thirsty… there). And this time they didn't bring me mountains of food. Shame, really, since almost everything is much cheaper in Montreal (especially the olive oil, which I learned yesterday has gone from 10 to 12$ at Loblaw's – for shame!).
My parents treated me to Gusto on Saturday night, which is a nice place which looks on the inside rather like cross between a high class tavern and the inside of a windmill (I've never been inside a windmill – come to think of it, I've never seen one in person – but I have an image of it in my head now that I've been inside Gusto). I had the swordfish. Quite tasty. Then my dad asked not to blog too much on thier trip here. I'm still not sure what he meant by that but I was always going to blog this.
Oh, and now my apartment is clean. New carpets in my entrance and I finally vacuumed the other carpets. Sweet.
