Wow lj still exists.

It's my last day in Ottawa today and, true to form, everyone is running around like a headless chicken. I left my house yesterday but we are currently trying to pack up Mel's room as she is moving straight after we come back from New York. Given that half my stuff is in there I am being not at all helpful by sitting typing on ye olde abandoned lj.

I am going to miss Ottawa a lot, it is a beautiful city and this has been a wonderful summer (perhaps I'll tell you all about it one day!) But yes, I'm going to New York for a week, and then Toronto for the Toronto film festival, so I guess it's not all quite over yet. However going on holiday is a lot different from living somewhere and Ottawa did feel like a home.

I am not looking forward to being in the grey UK again, where no one knows what poutine is and my accent can not be exploited to get a job/free drinks/make interesting friends.

On the plus side of life:
