I've been lagging behind in a lot of things (sorry if you've sent me mail and are still waiting for a reply!), but I think it's been good for me.

The day after we arrived, I managed to catch [livejournal.com profile] serendipity_wpg's last show on the Fringe, where I met [livejournal.com profile] wlach, [livejournal.com profile] cpirate and [livejournal.com profile] scjody, without anything being scheduled. After a choriço poutine at Mondo Fritz, I even crossed pzion on the way home. This was pretty cool, for a first day out, having such nice random encounters even in a city of three million people!

After getting all my money turned into Canadian currency, I tried to pick myself a nice Linksys WRTSL54GS, to hook ourselves up with some wireless Internet (with some hackability in mind!), to no avail. I ran into the WRT350N the next day, which seems to be the replacement model (had some issues with it at first, but it works perfectly for me once I restricted it to "b" and "g" wireless).

I also went for a drink with [livejournal.com profile] azrhey, [livejournal.com profile] cpirate, [livejournal.com profile] liberation_now and [livejournal.com profile] tygrbabe, which had me somewhat fiddly, but (of course!) proved to be quite enjoyable.

There was a visit by [livejournal.com profile] sps, [livejournal.com profile] swestrup and [livejournal.com profile] taxlady, where Settlers of Catan was played and I was soundly beaten to a pulp. I had cheese curds to console myself, which I was missing terribly!

I saw some of my old gang from cégep, where Mare Nostrum was played and I almost won, but Brain won finally. The usual...

I got myself some new shoes, which I find pretty nifty, but I then had the very silly idea of going for a walk before going to lab-synthèse-01. Going for a walk with new shoes, gah. I had soft ice cream to console myself. I had to leave before [livejournal.com profile] lautreamax got on, due to logistical constraints (also known as "living way the hell over there"), but I did catch (and enjoy!) his co-conspirator's set. More electronic music, more!

And today, we went downtown where I chatted with people for a bit while sipping coffee, walked around lazily and managed to randomly catch a 60% off deal on memory for my laptop at Compusmart's closing sale. Now writing this sitting on the lawn of the Place-des-Arts, from a spot in the shade, taking it easy with the Jazz Fest in the background... Nice!

No. They eat *cheese* in France.

That's what I told [livejournal.com profile] muadda when I left him my last box of Kraft Dinner.

Ca me fait penser... as-tu bu cette bière néerlandaise qu'est la Guinness?

Pas la néerlandaise, mais j'ai essayé celle du Kenya. :-)
