ready, set, go!

Last Friday I went for a beer and then sushi (we got hungry) with a friend who I haven't seen in a long time.

I bet him that he would fall in love within three months. This is a silly sort of thing to bet on, not like the time I bet that studies would show 90% of Grand Am drivers are aggressive assholes. But if he's in love in three months AND she's in love back, he has to take me out for a tallboy of Belle Gueule. I am so going to win this one.

'Belle Gueule' eh? Their beer may be good but they need to do something about their corporate image- according to the artist's rendition on the website, their brewery is a blank wooden building situated in a gloomy car park, where paunchy middle-aged men in blouson jackets accost nervous ladies carrying unfashionable handbags- mind you, it is in Quebec, so perhaps it is simply accurate?

Well yes, and you see, it is very Quebec to have a drink called "Boris Cool".

Quebec is way ahead of us uptight Ontarians in joie de vivre, but their corresponding and relative lack of self-consciousness has led them down dubious avenues of taste, such as that which celebrates the powerful cheesiness of Celine Dion and Roche Voisine (and occasionally unfashionable handbags for women and blouson jackets for men).

Mind you, walk around Montreal and you'll see fashion to rival that of Paris. (Unless you're at the XXX end of Ste. Catherine, then it's all back to the ugly jackets and the paunchy middle-aged men and the unfashionable handbags.)

"bayul gyooleh?"

your stat on grand am drivers made me think of IROC-Z's. Then it made me think of the acronym "Italian Retard Out Cruising" and I laughed. Then I typed it out, read it, and laughed again.

I'll bet you I'm going to pick my nose within 30 seconds.
