According to him I'm funny, irresistable.

This weekend has just been awesome. The weather is beautiful, and I feel more like it's the May long weekend, and I should go back to school with one month left. Unfortch, I have three months left, but we won't dwell on that for now.

Anyway, I had plans to get up this morning, maybe go to the gym, and tidy this place up, but I stayed up late last night after my train got my home at 12:30 am. And then when my alarm went off, Rilo was still sleeping, and then she hopped into my bed and laid on my arm, so I didn't want to disturb her.

Now I'm chilling on my couch watching the show I love to hate - "The View". I can't stand it, but it's a treat to watch it 'cuz it makes me think of summer, holidays, and days off work.

I'll have to get myself ready to go out soon. I'm meeting up with a friend for coffee to catch "How to Train Your Dragon". It's supposed to be really good.

I want to leave a little bit early to browse through the travel books at a bookstore. Some of the best conversations in my life occur with friends in cars, late at night, when they are dropping me off somewhere and we chit-chat. Anyway, after the wedding reception on Friday night, my friend Veronica Go9*, said she'd like to travel somewhere this summer, and we hatched an idea of a roadtrip to Boston and Cape Cod. I've been thinking about this idea, and I like it, and looking through travel books is my next step.

The wedding reception on Friday was really fun. It was great catching up with a bunch of people, and it was nice to celebrate the marriage of two fabulous people. A few of us went out for food and gossip afterwards which was super fun.

The rest of the weekend was filled with classic St. Ratford moments. I met up with my friend Heather for coffee at the most reliable place in town, and then we wandered around downtown and did some shopping. I bought a pair of funky tights at the Green Room as usual. In the evening, I ran some errands for the 'rents, and then went for a walk along my tried-and-true St. Ratford walking route.

Easter Sunday's weather was beautiful. I had the traditional breakfast of coloured hardboiled eggs as made by my dad. Yup, every year my dad still dyes eggs. I sometimes like to point out my age, and that this is no longer necessary, but I get dirty looks and I'm told not to ruin the holiday. After that, I went to church with my aunt, had a nap, and then went for a walk around the river with pretty much the rest of the town. Everyone was taking advantage of the weather, and I've never seen the river so busy. And tourist season hasn't started; so they were all locals! Anyway, after the walk, I ate too much for dinner, and got ready for my train.

Because I drove around this weekend, I found some new cheesy pop music to love. I love the song "According to You" by Orianthi. I am officially declaring it this year's "Since U Been Gone". Also, I've accepting the fact that my inner teenager really like Marianas Trench, and I've now got the whole album. It's emo-licious!

*I've decided to put "Go9" after a name when I write about someone in the Group of 9 (my friends from high school). It's rather like a professional designation!

Sounds like you had a very lovely, very full weekend! Enjoy your extra day off!

Boston sounds like a lot of fun!

Let us know how your trip shapes up!

If you go to Boston, go to Salem too. Easily the most fun I had on my trip to Boston was the day I spent in Salem. It's got that quaint small town feel, but all the little shops sell freaky stuff and you know, witch stuff.

That road trip sounds awesome. I am jealous of your geographic-proximity to such awesome places on that side of the continent. Everything is so spread out on this side.

Your weekend sounded like fun too. I will hold back my opinion of Marianas Trench. :p

You seem to be having a lot of fun at the start of summer. You would be hard pressed to top Italy. The good conversations in taxi cabs late night are probably because the guards are down.

Did you see the swan parade? The swans were released on Easter Sunday, which would have brought out a large quantity of locals....

a summer boston road trip sounds fun. lucking out with your summer vacation. are you thinking of driving through ny state (ie. buffalo to boston) or heading towards ottawa/montreal and then cutting down? if you have the time, i'd suggest doing one leg crossing the border to the east. the mass turnpike and ny state thruway are pretty boring, but the adirondacks in ny and green mountains in vt make for a nice drive. you'd also get to stop by burlington, vt. i think you'd really like it. summer on lake champlain in burlington, is great. summer's also the best time to go to boston. all the annoying college kids are on break, though you do have your share of drunk sox fans to make up for their absence i suppose.

I agree with your comment about the best conversations being in cars. I went to my parents on Sunday and my Sister-in-Law decided to come back with me instead of my brother because he was going to be listening to the hockey game.

We ended up chatting the whole way as we always do about everything and anything. The wait at the border went by super fast!

I can't believe the weather you guys had by the way! Insane!
