My trip has been cut short by an evening because of the lack of a Thifty Rental location in K’ton (see previous post), so I’m booked solid between now and the time I crawl onto a bus at 5:20pm tomorrow and collapse. My bus ticket, which saved me $12, cost me flexibility and I can’t travel on Fridays. argh.
So far I’ve met with 3 contributors, eaten at 2 cheapeats, found a good’n’cheap print shop, rewrote the research books, quarked up CEOT’04, learned how to use Adobe Distiller (thank you MO), printed and bound 11 research books (2 pending for MM & JC who haven’t gotten back to me).
Now I’m waiting @ R&Ms for GO to arrive to sweep me off to lunch at the Coconut Lagoon – one of his potentials. Of course, photos and details on that later.
From there I’m off to meet my cousin, the professor, for a long healthy and hopefully dry walk along the canal, in weather that I simply did not pack for. 20degrees in April – come ON! I don’t even have time to hit Giant Tiger to pick up something cooler to wear on my feet than my black 9-hole docs.
Okay, from my likely way too sweaty stroll down the byways of Ottawa, I scoot over to Pub Italia (pg?? CEOT’04) to meet with 5 more contributors (including 2 newbies) for a group briefing on what’s happening for CEOT’07
Oh and I have a hangover for no good reason. I mean, really! Who gets a hangover from 1 red stripe and a cup of chamomile tea???
Whoops- there’s my ride
