Happy St Jean!
It's a holiday in Quebec.
What am I doing to celebrate? Working.
I got my holiday day on Tuesday instead. It allowed me to have three days off in a row. The same thing happens next week. I get this Sun. Mon. and Tues. off but work on Canada day as well.
I feel like I am out of step with all the rest of the community. I will have to catch the fireworks show at the Old Port on another day to make up for all the fireworks I am missing...
It's also Grand Prix weekend in Montreal. That brings tourists. Lots of rich tourists. I saw one lady that was dressed up in black and white, and looking like a barbie doll with all the plastic surgery that requires. I was thinking, wow you only see people like that on Grand Prix weekend.
Montreal has it's own home grown rich crowd but you can just tell the difference somehow.
Madonna is also in town this week. My boss went to see her in concert. She loved the two hour show. She tells me that there was a lot of acrobatics this time around, instead of dancers, there were circus performers. Wonder where Madonna got that idea from. It was a great two hour for the fans, but no encores. No encores? Is that legal?
I was just thinking, maybe that Barbie lady was one of the Madonna circus performers...
Have a great weekend. Even if it's not a holiday weekend for you.
Happy St Jean for my fellow Quebecers.
Next weekend, I am wishing you all a happy Canada Day!!
