I'm back from my 3-day trip to Montreal, highlighted by my cousin Patrick's wedding. They chose a very beautiful location, in old Montreal, which was built in 1608. It was so old, in fact, that I saw a painting of old man Jon on the wall, and he didn't look a day over 60!
It was good to see family on my mom's side, which does not happen enough, due to family quarelling and such. A wedding is always a good kick-in-the-butt to get contact info and get back in touch with relatives.
Kathy, the beautiful bride, is very nice and easygoing. Between her and my cousin, you have the most soft-spoken, polite, and patient couple on the planet.
Some interesting tidbits about Montreal:
- No salt on the sidewalks: Makes for an exciting walk downhill
- Bloc Quebecois propoganda during election time. Their tagline: "ici, c'est le Bloc", which kinda sounds like Roc-a-fella's "It's the Roc!"
- Men like sideburns. Big, honking, sideburns. It pwns.
- At the hotel, we stayed in room 112. If you don't get it, then you suck.
