So today I was on the train, on my way to the university to meet Nattie and I met the most interesting, fantastic train friends! They got on at Victoria Park Stampede station (shock, right?) and they are from the great state of Illinois! I recognized that they had an accent the second they started talking, but I couldn't figure out where it was from. I knew it definitely wasn't Southern and that it wasn't Montana or something right below us, but I figured it was from the middle of the country somewhere. Then they asked me if Earls was a good restaurant and I said yes and they asked if it was very expensive and I said it was maybe a little more expensive than other restaurants like it, but that it was very reasonable. And we talked for a while and I asked them if they were visiting anywhere else while they're here and they said they were going to Banff and Jasper and maybe to Drumheller as well. I said they were both great, great day trips and they asked me questions about the climate and asked when summer starts here (ha ha, not funny) and I told them that it was pretty decent all year and that this is usually our hottest week of the year, blah blah blah. Anyways, I really had fun talking to them, and I didn't even get their names! It was a woman and her husband (whose name was Bob: I know this because it was written on his coat) and their other friend. And they asked me if I was a college student and if I had ever been down to Illinois or the midwest in general and I said no, but I've been to ND and SD and WY and Montana (whose abbreviation I don't know but I probably should). It was just a great time. And then they wished me good luck when I got off the train and I told them to enjoy their visit and stuff. They were just fun fun fun!

The second thing I must post about is that I have a new link on my page! It is to Alex's (my good buddy from work) blog. She is going to Europe soon so it shall tell of her wild adventures! Hooray!


EDIT: I forgot to say that Jord's tattoo appointment went quite well but it was still bandaged up when I saw him so I didn't get to take a peek at it! I saw a little bit of the top and it looked pretty cool, so I'm very happy for him! I still miss his arm but I'm getting used to the tattoo idea really fast!

Isn't Montana MN? Or is that Minnesota? What a mystery!
