So rather than me driving all over North America for a change, a member of the Puntabugang came to visit me. Nathan V and his friend Esther came up to Ottawa for the Blues Fest and some touristy things and are staying with me. Nathan is a super guy, lots of fun, very outgoing and now a little sad because the Netherlands lost the World Cup final. But we drank Heineken during the match so that alleviated the pain somewhat. Esther is great too, they are excellent house guests.
My bunny took a real shine to Nathan. Usually he doesn't like to be out of his cage much but he sat on Nathan's lap quite a bit. We call him Bun but Nathan re-christened him Frank which he seemed to like. Perhaps we'll have to start calling him Frank now.
Nathan and Esther came by my office for the grand tour. We have some aboriginal art up this month so we got our picture taken by the big totem who looking at it appears to be licking our heads. They are at the Blues Fest tonight and hopefully not getting too wet, it's been a rainy day and I think they are heading back home after the concert tonight as Nathan has to perform with his orchestra Thursday. I may not see them if they get back late. Last night they got home late from going out with friends and we were up way too late chatting so I may crash before they get back. They've managed to get around at night on the buses and I've yet to receive a phone call saying they ended up at the wrong end of town, so it's all good.
It was great fun to meet Nathan, my fellow Project Runway contestant and Puntabugang member, and I look forward to seeing him again in Long Island in three weeks at the pool party.
I'm going to have very few "internet" friends left soon because if I keep meeting them they become "real life" friends. :-)
