minute I got here, I was instantly involved in a surprise
50th Birthday Party for n8's mom! This party was about 200
people from all over occupying 3 full backyards in a whole
very elegant and fun atmosphere. I had lots of fun.
on Saturday..... the Sunday I was invited to 4 BBQs going
on. I couldn't make all of them, but I did manage to make
it to my 3 sisters BBQ who actually didn't know I was gonna
make it. They were the same 3 girls that came to visit me
in Miami. I think I took pictures but I haven't developed
of the week so far has just been hectic business stuff with
my parents who are also in town. I have been staying at n8's
house here at nWo Toronto headquarters and n8 has been very
hospitable. Thanks to him, I have been getting around and
having a very comfortable place to sleep.
time in Toronto looks like its going to be a highlight reel
of events. Already the POPE has flown from the Vatican
and is here in Toronto for World Youth Day. The city is just
in awe of his presence. There are like over a million youth
from all over the world here for this event. I was on the
subway and you can see how they are totally out there singing
songs in their native home language, just so happy. It's really
inspiring. I seen a huge turnout for Brazil and Italy. Each
of them chanting, "VIVA ITALIA" or "VIVA BRASILIA".
Of course there were groups from the United States chanting,
"USA, USA!!" but you already expect that. Its okay
to do that here and be proud of where you are coming from.
This Sunday the POPE will be having a 9:30am Mass. I'm not
Catholic or anything, but I'm surely gonna try and be
there for that. I'm so close to seeing him, I might was well
take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity. Would
you go and see the POPE if he was in your city/town? Vote
on my poll!
this weekend, the next big thing on my agenda is preparing
for the Toronto International Festival (aka Caribana) That
means spending a minimum of $300 to eat, drink and get admission
to all the great events and parties happening in the 2 week
received a free movie for 2 with Famous Players Movie Theatres
after earning so many points with my Royal Bank Visa Card.
The actual gift pass entitled me to 2 movies along with 2
medium drinks and a popcorn. I didn't want the popcorn and
wanted to trade down to anything else. A chocolate bar, nachos,
anything.. I didn't care... as long as it wasn't POPCORN.
I went to the counter and asked if I could have something
else. Without even pausing to think the underage pimple faced
girl on her summer job told me, "No, I can't do that."
So I went to guest services and met some more underage pimple
faced girls but witl more important name tags and they told
me the same thing. All I wanted was for the person behind
the counter to just punch in "one popcorn" and give
me something else. It didn't matter what. So in the end I
settled for the popcorn. But during my movie (Men In Black
2) the popcorn was catastrophically littered in a 20 seat
radius of me. N8 DOGG dastardly emptied the bag that was heavily
sprinkled with White Cheddar powder all over me and the seats.
DAMN HIM! But all in all it was all fun....
