I, seriously, have SO MUCH to tell you guys.
Like, I tried poutine for the first time ever. Which made me realize my life needs a lot more cheese and gravy in it.
I also tried a Caesar for the first time, as well.
Which is kind of like a Bloody Mary.
Unless you’re Canadian. And then it’s the BEST DRINK ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND NOTHING LIKE A BLOODY MARY AT ALL, SO SHUT YOUR AMERICAN FACE.
It was the perfect whirlwind, one-night trip.
With the perfect group of super fun ladies.
And I totally promise to tell you all about it later this week.But, first, I need to yell at you for making me cry.
You see, on the bus ride home, I got a message from a friend telling me that this happened.
I’ve been nominated for a 2013 Bloggie for the Best Travel Weblog.
I don’t even know how that happened.
Okay, so I do know how that happened.
It’s all because of you.
And possibly a little bit because I promised you all ponies if you nominated me.
But mostly because of YOU.
And as I sat there on the bus, I felt so overwhelmed and grateful and maybe just the teensiest bit tired because I spent a lot more time drinking than sleeping this weekend.So I started to cry.
I’m sure I’ve told you this before, but I’m a real ugly crier. My face gets all red and twitchy. I start to do that thing where you’re, like, coughing and sobbing and hyperventilating all at the same time. And I break out into hives. Because I always break out into hives. Because, seriously, you guys, my skin is allergic to emotions.
It didn’t help that this was only minutes before I was supposed to go through immigration. And, in case you’ve never been through immigration before, it’s really not a good idea to show up looking all twitchy and sobby and mildly unhinged.
Anyway, I just want to thank you all for believing in me and supporting me and for, once again, nominating me for an award that I totally don’t deserve.
Even if you did almost get me arrested at the border.
I hear they serve poutine in Canadian prison.
And, I’m hoping this guy gets to be my cellmate.How was YOUR weekend? Get up to anything fun? Make anyone else cry? P.S. Want to see me cry even more?
