I'm off!

I’m flying up to Edmonton tomorrow to meet a longtime friend. I’m looking forward to hiking through the snow covered mountains (snow is a big deal to me; we don’t really see much snow in Houston).

Sunday we’re going to check out Edmonton’s big ass mall. It’s supposed to be the biggest mall in North America; I’m gonna have to check out the amusement park that’s in the mall. I’ll fly back Monday, and arrive in Houston Monday night.

I’m really excited (and a little nervous ) to finally meet this person face to face. We’ve talked on the phone and online for over 6 months now, and she’s really cool and laid back. She is the closest friend that I’ve never met, and it’s gonna be great to finally give her a hug. Whatever happens, we’re gonna be friends.

I’ve never done anything like this before, but I figure the small risk is worth the chance to finally go to Canada, and to meet my online friend.

I’ll see everybody Tuesday!

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

Good travels my fine friend…be careful, our beer has actual alcohol in it! :wink:

I always thought the Mall of America in Minneapolis was the biggest… or maybe its that Eaton Mall in Columbus… who knows, who cares… (sorry, just rambling here)

Have fun in Canada, eh?

Have a great time Sealemon. Hey, you can get real Cuban cigars in Canada too.

Have a great time, mon. This could be the start of something really big.

Oh, if you’re driving and the sign says 80, that’s kilometers, so be cool.

Let us know how it goes.

Hmm. . . could this be the mall you are referring to?

Let’s see if I can quote the front page here. . .

<QUOTE>At 5.3 million square feet, West Edmonton Mall is the largest, most comprehensive indoor shopping and entertainment complex in the world as well as Alberta’s #1 tourist attraction.

With
the Fantasyland Hotel, many fine restaurants and nightlife, the mall is a vacation resort in itself. Open 365 days a year, hours may vary for retail and attractions.</QUOTE>

My first reaction when I read that was SUBMARINES???
