yay! i think my blog is behaving again! the last entry i posted has stayed put, as well as my new blog template, so i am one happy girl. and just in time, too, because i really need to gush about the preparations for our trip to Canada!!! the flight was booked a long time ago, but it's just been in the last couple weeks that we've been planning and booking everything else. the plan is to spend 8 or 9 days with my folks, and then we're driving east. we've rented the car, and have already settled on the first stop, in Montreal to visit my friend Anne-Marie. the 2 of us met the summer after my 2nd year of university as part of a work exchange programme with Germany. there were about 40 of us Canadians, and we all flew over to Germany together. we had 2 days to meet and get to know eachother, and then were sent to all parts of Germany to work for the summer. Anne-Marie and i got sent to the same cuckoo clock store in the middle of the Black Forest. it was the funniest job ever. there were about 200 clocks mounted on the walls of the store, and about every 5 minutes or so, someone would ask us 'what does this one sound like?' so we would have to make it cuckoo for them! lol!

Anne-Marie not only worked together, but also shared a room, and made sure to get all our days off together, so we were basically joined at the hip for 3 months. it was possible the best summer i've ever had. i've only seen her once since, because she lives in Montreal, which was 5 or 6 hourse away from my hometown, Toronto, but we've kept in touch over email and are still downright gushy with eachother. when we were in Germany, everyone compared us to a newlywed couple, and even after 5 years, that zealous affection is still there. Friends like her are hard to find, and i could not be more excited that i will finally get to see her again. and to make things even better, i will get to meet the love of her life, and she'll meet mine! if that's not cause for some serious drinkin' i don't know what is! LOL :D
