On hour 6 of train ride home from Montreal (to Toronto). I hate that part of train/plane ride where everything aches and all of your "toys" that you bring to keep you company have either warn out their stay (book) or are losing batteries (this lap top).
Trip was fantastic though. :D
Hungry as fuck, though.... McDonalds will have my busines tonight (being the only thing probably open at 11 on a Sunday night).
Omg guys, RPGfan has its winter theme on.
Christmas confirmed 2012.
Quoting this for happiness. This is my favorite time of year. :)
Took a train from... somewhere in Ohio or Michigan, I think it was Detroit or Toledo, IDK one of those murder cities... once, and it was great. Took a train to Chicago once too. Loved it. Haven't been on a train since.
Really wish I could do that again. Train rides neat.
Train through America? I bet. Love to see that myself.
Train through Ontario, Canada??
There is honestly nothing to see but farms and small towns....and some cows.
Be nice if it was more around the coasts, there's a lot more wildlife, but most of what we have is trees and grass, rinse and repeat. It's great to see how big Canada is though, it's nice in a way...
Montreal was quite lovely though! But I feel like an ass; we're from the same country, but most of the residents there are bi- to trilingual. They know English better than I could confidently say one sentence is French without feeling like an idiot. And man, they love music and art more in one block than Toronto does throughout the entire city. I'd love to come back sometime. It's best described like....a suburban city. It's got all of the buildings and sights of a "pretty big city", but hardly the population -- "rush hour" was pretty tame. Maybe I'm wrong, only had a good 2.5 days to see it all... but I liked it. :)
Boyfriend and I went to Final Fantasy: Distant Worlds
Symphony -- I was happy to hear he liked it plenty enough even without prior exposure or context from the games, that made me really happy. Uematsu was there too -- I think the hardcore FF-nerd besides may have creamed himself a bit, he was so excited (but I'm glad he was happy??). Uematsu was great, he came on to the stage for the encore to get the audience to participate in the final number. He looked like one happy video game composer. But hey, who would have thought that writing 8-bit "bleeps" and "bloops" for a videogame 25 years ago would lead to doing an orchestrated world-tour -- it may show a humble side to a fella who didn't expect the "world fame".
Particularly awesome was them bringing an acoustic player for Vamo'Alla Flamenco and Dear Friends (I'm really fond of acoustic tracks, and really fond of those two pieces). I was also impressed when they did like 90% of the Opera from FF6 (complete with opera singers for Maria, Draco and Ralse or whatever).
