Springtime ... for Hitler!

It's a little-known fact that the fastest and cheapest means of transportation from Paris to Montreal is actually via the metro. Just hop on line 15, which passes through Gare Montparnasse, and a mere five hours and eleventy-ten minutes later you will arrive at the Square-Victoria station on the orange line - all for the price of a standard ticket!

Once in town, I immediately got down to business by trying to steal baby Catalina and baby Xavier. For some strange reason, however, they did not play along, and anyhow seemed to prefer my mother. Go figure.

Next on the agenda was a quick brunch with some of the ol' gang at Chez Cora. It's where all the cool kids go, you know. Never disappoints. I mean, « Crêpomelette »? That's bloody magic right there.
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Finally, I got to say hello to my good friend Tommy Wiseau at the Love is Blind Tour 10th Anniversary presentation of The Room, screened officially for the first time in Montreal at the Dollar Cinema. He got a little up close and personal, but that's just Tommy. Ha, Ha, Ha.
"Why, Johnny? Why? Johnny, why? Why?"
"I'm tired, I'm wasted... I love you, darling!"
Anyway, how is your sex life?

Aladdin and the Cave of Wonders

As a little reward for finally finishing the second of my three papers, I decided to hit an underground "Princes and Princesses" Party as the Disney Prince Aladdin. I tried to go for this.
Aladdin and Abu
It came out a little like this.

At least Titou makes a great Abu, and I'm pretty proud of the way my hand-sewn mini-fez turned out.

For the record, I am not gay. And Laura makes awesome dark-chocolate truffles.
