Doperéal 2003 has gotten off to a fabulous start. Everyone arrived at the Pad of Evil® safe and sound, if not a bit late.
Dinner was lovely. It was (AFAIK) the first Dopefest experience Upside_Down_Amber, kung fu lola, and jools, and they are lovely ladies all. (Unforunately, the restaurant managers turned off the girl-on-girl action that started playing on the TV monitors, much to U_D_A and kfl’s chagrin.)
ladydisco and the (yummilicious) Mr-disco brought along two “d00d”-type friends. Sean and Shane? Something like that.
MsRobyn is a now convert to Quebec-style rotisserie BBQ chicken. In about an hour, she’ll be a convert to poutine.
We then went to Club Date for some rowdy karaoke. matt_mcl sang something like “For me for me formidable”… ladydisco sang a lovely rendition of “Daydream Believer” … and I, scott evil, did my ultimate Cher, singing “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves.” Swarthy, indeed. Zette would have been proud.
And of course, detop, Grand Marshall of Doperéal, oversaw all activities with wisdom and grace.
As I write this, MsRobyn, CuriousCanuck, and Daerlyn are lounging on an air mattress in the living room of Evil. We’re off to get some poutine and tour Old Montreal in a few minutes.
Yes, we’re all having a grand time at the Pad of Evil®. Daerlyn and I have been reminding CC that a threesome is not all it’s cracked up to be. [sub]Note for those Dopers who happen to be Airman Doors: No actual sex took place.[/sub]
Last night’s dinner was marvelous. I’ve half a mind to write to the St. Hubert’s people and ask about franchise opportunities in Pennsylvania. Ditto for the Tutti Frutti people, and I’m sure that’ll be true for the poutine.
La Ronde looks so incredibly cool that we want to do as many rides as possible. However, there will be line-ups. So, we’ll be meeting at 10 AM at the puck at the top level of the Berri-UQAM metro Sunday morning.
Poutine was fantastic. MsRobyn was initiated to the joys of “coronary in a bowl.” This was followed by a visit to Notre-Dame Basilica, Old Montreal, and the Old Port.
Dinner at Reuben’s (the one near Peel) at 8:30!! We might hit a drag show at Chez Mado afterward.
Uh-huh. I’ll quit school on a cold day in hell. Besides, you get male-bonding time with Aaron. By the time I get home Monday night, he’ll be able to belch on command and make farting noises with his armpit. How’s the sprat doing, anyway?
After following the dramas/joys of the pregnancy and birth of Aaron, may I just say that reading this brought a huge smile to my face. He’s grown from fragile baby to ‘sprat’ in what seems like an eyeblink.
It is amazing to realize that he’s gone from a wrinkled, purple prune who slept, ate and pooped all day to an actual human being who can do things for himself. Heck, he doesn’t even drink from a bottle anymore!
Okay, back to Dopereal.
Last night’s dinner was a lot of fun. The restaurant was very nice, the food was good, and there were some new people I got to meet, which is always good.
After dinner, scott evil and I walked back to the The Pad of Evil®, where I called home and where we hung out before we all passed out from sheer exhaustion.
Today, we’re off to La Ronde. Scott and I are going to ride the Dragon, which is an interior roller coaster. This should be a lot of fun. I’ve never been to a bilingual theme park before. (Well, there is Fiesta Texas, but that’s not quite the same.)
I went outside on friday…only withstood 3 hours. You see, i have alergies for spring and all…but a simple alergy pill usualy is enough. But the humidity was such a weight on my system that it was as if i didn’t take any medecin! damn it…
i was snot -nosed,sneezing,watery-eyed all day friday, saturday and today…
Oh the heavens don’t give me a break when i need one!
For your information, wiseass, I didn’t ride the Vampire. It was too scary-looking, so detop and I watched and talked. The other rides were pretty tame.
This afternoon, I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon in the company of matt_mcl. We spent the time in line for La Pitune (the log-flume ride) quizzing each other on international capitals. Before that, Matt, detop, and Curious Canuck and I passed the time on the monorail quizzing each other on U.S. state and Canadian provincial capitals. Suffice it to say, I was pretty impressed.
