Maintenant moi m'amuse juste

I'm back from my foray to Quebec City with a group of high school girls - here's a small selection from my journal:

  • Note to self: make a pitch to someone, anyone about a new action/horror movie. I see Samuel L. Jackson as a lead. The premise - something malevolent and evil is on a train, something that cannot be controlled and operates outside all known laws and behaviours.
    The title: Teens on a Train.
  • The kids are right. Guys in Quebec are hotter. A LOT hotter.
  • It takes 4 days for memories of high school French to bubble to the surface. Just in time to come home and forget it all again.
  • Quebec City is my favourite place in North America. I feel like I'm in Europe, but they take the same currency and don't get overly snotty when I have to resort to speaking English.
  • Teenagers aren't the only ones who go "neener neener" - after the English won the battle and took over Quebec City, their church was built so the steeple was 3' taller than the highest point on the French Roman Catholic cathedral.
  • Hearing history as a teenager and hearing it as an adult is vastly different. I wish I could have appreciated it more when I was younger, but am glad I have the opportunity to revisit it now.
  • The worst places to go for anything of real interest are the places closest to where the cruise ships dock. All you'll find there are crappy stores and mediocre restaurants looking to lighten the wallets of overweight American tourists.
  • Art is a very personal experience. And I greatly dislike people telling me what I should like and why. I'll make up my own mind, thank you very fucking much.
  • Note to self: look on the internet if there are any summer rentals on Ile D'Orleans. I'd like to spend a week just sitting on the shore watching the lake freighters slip past. And I'd bring a bicycle - the island is only 32 kms long.
Overall it was a good trip..the kids are fun, and as good as their age will let them be. And the teachers I went with are like-minded pals. So it was a nice break from work, even though it was work. If you know what I mean.

Calling all punk aficionados:

Go here. Download the sampler. Enjoy the best punk that the Fat Wreck Chords label has to offer. I love the name of the first track by Against Me!...makes me wonder if Iggy wrote it.

Because I love to jump into things that I am nowhere near prepared for, I have signed up for the NaNoWriMo, joining such august bloggers as Gracie, Pauly and JoeSpeaker. I feel inadequate already, but what the hell. My nick on there is Katitude, if anyone wants to check my progress... or lack thereof *grin.

The increasingly appropriate working title is "Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time".

    Change "where the cruise ships dock" to "the main street of town" and get rid of the "American" reference and you'll have the same idea for any big city in Europe.

    My family had the best Italian food we've ever had by wandering around the back streets of Venice. There's no way I'll ever find that restaurant again, unfortunately.

    Don't forget Waffles is doing NaNoWriMo as well... this post worries me about the whole thing :).

    I'll be joining you all in the NaNoWriMo as well--it *did* seem like a great idea at the time!

    Now I'm just stuttering to think of characters.

    Melinda had posted a comment which has been deleted as it was just too vile for words.

    References to any sexual activity with minors and children will NOT BE TOLERATED!
