Ah, Canada

I post to you now from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Aside from a few naps, I’ve been up since 3:30 a.m. Indiana time. For some reason, it was easier for me to get up at 3:30 than it usually is to get up at 6:00. Weird. In that time I flew from Indy to Newark, NJ, and then to Halifax. Then a 3+ hour drive from Halifax to Yarmouth. Along the way I saw a giant raccoon cross the road, but no moose, sadly.

The Canadians I have met and talked to so far have been very nice, and the last one in particular had that ever-so-neat Canadian accent, so that was fun. I’m sure they’ve got me pegged as a Statesider right off the bat, but they’re nice enough to not poke me with sticks or anything. The smile-and-nod does wonders when dealing with weirdo Americans.

There’s been some credit card-related excitement that I don’t want to get into right yet, but I am safely ensconced in a hotel with Internet access, so I guess things are okay for now.

More bulletins as events warrant, but for now, here’s a complete list of what I’ve consumed today:

  • a bottle of lemon-raspberry water
  • two (2) Frosted Cherry Pop-Tarts
  • some orange juice (first flight)
  • some REALLY GOOD cranapple juice (on the second flight)
  • pretzels (also second flight)
  • peanuts (also second flight)

I spit right in the face of healthy eating.

    That critter might have been a stray Maine coon cat.

    Just sayin'.

    No pizza to wash it down with?
