Yea, you know it's weird. When I was younger, it was all about getting away from here. But now that I'm older, and the place is really growing nicely and the country is.. heaven honestly.

Well, didn't that sound corny!!

I had a nice wiff of eau de pulp mill this weekend on the way to a wedding.

It was absolutely beautiful for fall colours until Saturday when it rained and knocked all the leaves off.

It actually snowed here yesterday

Snow??

Must be 'cause you're wayyyyy up north.

I went to a Sea Dogs game last year at Harbour Station, Halifax vs. Saint John and rooted for Halifax. Luckily I was next to a family of four, but the two college girls behind me gave me an earful! But then they both took me out to the bar after the game, so it all worked out in the end.

It's best to be slightly lit when watching a Sea Dogs game, because they really suck. I haven't been to a game yet where they won. On the good side, they did fix up Harbour Station nice.. and Harbour Station fries are mighty tasty.

Apparently we're going to get a tropical storm. Huzzah. I'm not ready for winter yet!

Well I started boozing as soon as I got there, but couldn't get blazed. I did go with my grandfather, after all. We were on opposite ends of the rink, cause him and all his old cronies have season tickets in the same area. Harbour Station fries

It's a damn shame all the food at the Metro Centre is shit. Everything else there is too, though.

I did manage to get out to what the girls said is the only dance club in Saint John after the game...out near McAllister Place, right in front of the horse track. I don't remember the name but I think it was a warehouse with a few black lights and a bar, and a restaurant in one half

I didn't hear about the tropical storm, but it's exciting The hurricane was a whole lot of fun, some friends and I had a puff then went down to the water front and watched a ship sink!

The Three Mile? Actually, I think Club Montecarlo is part of that. I may be wrong

I think it's funny how martimers 'fun' activities include going out to the beach and watching the waves. I'm guilty of it for sure. I'm actually hoping we get some high gusts so there may be a good rough tide. Woo fun times

The Three Mile! That's it! What a shit hole

We really do live up to the stereotype, don't we?

We had to get off the water front eventually as the storm got stronger because there were shingles, then boards and chunks of asphalt flying around...once we saw boulders (one was the size of a pitcher's mound around) flying up onto the boardwalk, we hightailed it out of there. But watching that boat go down was damn cool. It kept whacking against the side of the dock, and the owner eventually came down and tried to lash it more solidly to the pier, but while he was doing it, he lost hold of the rope, the ship started spinning and hit another pier and then sunk right where it was sitting:

You know, with a mast like that.. kind of looks like ye olde Bluenose II haha!

We lucked out here with Juan. Didn't get hardly anything.

Yes, Three Mile is on my "AVOID" list for certain when it comes to town. Some good pubs uptown though

I haven't been in Hali for almost ten years.. well, I guess I was just through a few years ago on the way to Bridgewater.

Sounds like it's time for a trip. You can see the Liquor Dome and it's infamous dollar drinks night It's a bit of a step up from the Three Mile. I'll even bring you there for free if you bring me some cheese from the City Market

We went to a nice spot first uptown, near Market Square. I don't remember what it was called, but it was an Irish pub and looked a lot like the Lower Deck (if you've ever been there). LOADS of Navy guys there (which is weird, because I don't think there's a Navy base in Saint John?), one of the girls I was with managed to pick one up in about 5 minutes!

Was it O'Leary's? *thinks*

They may have been from the HMCS Brunswicker baselet. Or whatever that is. It only has coast guard ships I think.

You got it!

They charged me $8 each for Liquid Cocaine shots, though

Coast Guard isn't quite the same. She'd be disappointed to find out she didn't shack up with a Navy guy!

Bastards!

I'm not a huge drinker so I don't pub often. Though a couple weeks ago I went to a seedy west side tavern to watch a.. wrestling match. It was so bad that it was actually hilarious. When the guy stood on the top rope, he was above the lights and could touch the ceiling

Sounds like you might have been risking your neck there!

This is cool, there's finally someone else around that I can make stupid Maritimer references with who will actually understand.

We're in a bar, so I'll buy you a Keith's. Being from New Brunswick, you'll probably want an Alpine, but I'm not in the business of punishing new friends.

You know what's sad about that...

I actually DO prefer Alpine to Keith's.

I know, for ages I thought GibsonGirl was the only other maritimer, although I know alot of newfs don't really consider themselves to be part of our.. uh.. inner circle
