The summer season is dwindling. We had the first not-hot day and you know what that means, the next thing you know it's gonna be Christmas. And the seven month stint in the icebox. Of course, between now and then we get the loveliest season of all, fall, of which there will be more and more hints in the upcoming weeks.
Yesterday we went on the jet boating ride, my fifth time I believe, and it was as fun as ever. Froze to death the rest of the afternoon though. It must have been pretty humid because hours later my shorts were still totally wet. It is still the funnest thing to do in Montreal. Every tourist should include it in their itinerary.
Hey, they called me from that TV show, Un Souper Presque Parfait. It seems I'm on the list of contestants or alternatives and I won't know if I'm going to be on the show until the week prior. If they don't call me in the next 4 months, I didn't get on. They called me while I was in the metro station and the guy who interviewed me spoke ridiculously fast, I think I caught maybe half of what he was saying. It was like those radio commercials with the super fast talkers. Stressed me the hell out. Now I've got to practice cooking. I explained this show before on the blog in case you don't remember. I hope I get on! Fingers crossed.
Serge and I have been trying to decide what to do over xmas vacation. Friends invited us to go down to Mexico and rent a house in a sleepy fishing village. The price of the house was right, but sheesh are airfares ridiculous right now. Then we were toying with the idea of Puerto Vallarta for xmas week. The bad side of that one was a return flight at 2:50am. Ugh. We were also thinking of just hanging around Southern California like we did last year, a few days in Palm Springs and San Diego for example. That would certainly be the cheapest option but we want warmth. It's possible that it would be warm in Socal but hardly a guarantee. It was chilly last year at that time. Finally we decided to cruise out of Long Beach down to Mexico. You have to pay more for that week compared to other times of the year, but it's something we both know we will enjoy. 8 nights, can't wait. Anybody want to join us?
Sorry about being a bad blogger, I've been working and trying to finish up my current group, and get ready for September when the new groups start. No 12 of 12, I just wasn't feeling it. Next month perhaps.
