One of my absolute favourite things in the world is Shakespeare-in-the-Park. As a part of Repercussion Theatre, a non-profit organization that tours Canada and the U.S., Shakespeare-in-the-Park is a troupe of actors who perform (you guessed it) exclusively Shakespearean plays in outdoor public spaces. It’s because of them that I love the Bard as much as … More Shakespeare in the Park: Julius Caesar
If you know me, you’ll also know that I knock the town I live in for being both in the middle of nowhere and kinda boring. Mostly this comes from being super lonely. Since coming home last summer, however, and going with Ricky to all the new restaurants, bars, and cute little shops that have … More Le Monde en Fête: Chambly’s Neighbourhood Festivals
There are a few landmarks that make you immediately think “Montreal”. The Olympic Stadium, the cross on Mount Royal, the triangle tip of the Atrium Le 1000 on the skyline. One of the most bizarrely unforgettable, however, will always remain the Gibeau Orange Julep. Why? Because this building is literally a giant orange. Mostly it’s … More Montreal Sundry: Orange Julep
Hello all you lovely folks! I’ve missed you!! It seems I took an impromptu month-long vacation from blogging. Not that it was a vacation in any other way: I’ve been working solidly since the last week of July, continuing my strict workout regime, and all the while been having people from around the world – … More Back in Action!
So Christmas is great. Halloween is greater. And Comic Con might just be the best of them all. And unlike Christmas and Halloween, I haven’t experienced Comic Con in almost three years. My love for it started back in Australia when I went to the Sydney Supanova 2011. I’d never been to a Con before, … More Montreal Comic Con 2016
Winter in Montreal sucks. It’s endless, desperately cold, and induces much cabin fever from being cooped up indoors for so long. Every summer, is, therefore, a celebration. Lately Montreal’s been putting up communal spaces for people to enjoy for as long as the sun is shining, compensating for the difficult season enveloping most of the year. … More Montreal Sundry: La Grande Terrasse
As with most of the world, Pokémon Go has taken Canada with full force. I myself downloaded it the day it became available, catching many a Weedle and Rattata here in Chambly. I’ve been hearing all kinds of hilarious stories about places in the world where people have become obsessed with it – my favourite being … More Go Montreal! Pokémon Invasion
One of my favourite sights in the world is of the Montreal skyline from across the water. Doubleplusgood when it’s at either sunset or sunrise: nothing like that tall, icy blue sky meeting the orange band of the horizon. Montreal is such a small city, all the more modest for being an island with limited … More Montreal Sunset
No time for a long post today, but here’s Martandrea looking fly on the dark side! Honestly I wonder sometimes if I like Comic Con more than Christmas.
I will get around to more of this soon, but for now, I’m just going to leave this here: Comic Con is the best.
