Status Updates

I've been in Cold Lake since Thursday. Usually, this equates to a ton of Facebook status updates and blog posts, but I've been without Internet access for the last week. So throughout the weekend, I made notes of what my status updates might have said.

Lakehouse FTW.

7:00 PM 

The servers at Picante didn't know what they were up against. I miss the Harbour House.

 9:30 PM

Feel really bad for Econoline Crush. They've been reduced to playing indoor soccer fields in Cold Lake. Man, they must miss 1999. (I do, too.)

9:43 PM

"No direct eye contact!" (This how you avoid talking to people you know in a small town.)

11:15 PM

Time to drop the Toronto music snob pretension. I love Cold Lake and OLP. If only it was 2001.

12:30 AM

"That's the thing about Cold Lake. It always makes you feel like you're 18 again."

12:59 AM

At a stag party. Only guys. (Obviously.) They're trying to convince us to strip. Haven't bothered to tell them it's futile.

Best wedding vows ever. "I promise to always love you, even though you're an Oilers fan."

4:00 PM

First wedding that I've ever cried at. Congrats Kate & Marc!

Days like today are the reason that Cold Lake will always be my favourite place in the world.

Volunteering at a golf tournament in St. Albert. Someone just asked, "Are you the people's choice?" True story. My day has been made. (It doesn't hurt that my job is to pour Bailey's.)

 6:15 PM

Highway 28, for the third time in less than a week. I only have to drive it seven more times in the next month. Feels like home.

  1. Wow, I sure miss that blue sky and water! (And I love the blue dress.)
