weekend in montreal

mood: i'm out of bed & dressed - what more do u want?
soundtrack: Magic Systeme - C Cho, Ca Brule

this weekend i got to take it exceptionally easy with the language pledge. almost everybody in the program went to montreal for the weekend and i had to stay here since i didn't have a visa. obviously we drank on both friday and saturday night.
nothing really exciting happened on friday night.
on saturday night we decided to go to burlington to change the venue and the faces. we had a nice dinner in one of the restaurants on the church street and then set out looking for entertainment. unfotunately the party we were supposed to go got cancelled and we had improvise. after asking some bypassers, we had figured out that one of the best venues downtown is club metronome. we arrive there and learn that it's 70s night...given we didn't have much of a choice, we took what came our way. as we went in there i was slightly shocked by this establishment. it's was a really old place with no a/c, loud-ass music and a "barish" kind of thing in the corner. but 5 of us did party our asses off until we became so sweaty that it was impossible to move without splashing the sweat around. then we left and came back to campus.
the more i visit the nightclubs and parties here in the states, the more i realize how lame are the partying habits here. i mean if people are happy with dirty venues, 2 o'clock closures, cheap-ass beer and people around them dressed into god knows what, then it tells me something. anyhow, it seems like the people know how to work, but got no idea how to party properly..

a sentence

mood: chilled-tired
soundtrack: La Rue Ketanou - Tu parles trop

for my francophone world class i had to read a book by milan kundera "jacques et son maitre: hommage à denis diderot en trois actes" and came across this:

Il y a quelque chose qui me chiffonne: est-ce que tu es un salaud parce que c'est écrit là-haut?
Ou est-ce que c'est écrit parce qu'ils savaient, là-haut, que tu étais un salaud? Quelle est la cause et quel est l'effet?

in lingua franca: are you a whore because it's written in the big book or is it written in the big book because you are a whore.
made me smile...but really which one is the cause and which is the effect??!

me and the blogs

it's been already several months since i was planning to set up a blog. for one reason i was hesitating, because in the blog one writes to everybody and yet to nobody. anyways, i'm giving it a try and see how will it work. if you come back here in a month and find nothing, it means the idea didn't work out and i'm switching back to email, which i'm so bad with anyways..
