Encore Montreal

I’ll be out of here at zero dark stupid tomorrow, bound for my least favorite place in the world.

View from the Hampton Inn, Dorval

There does happen to be a used bookstore in the neighborhood, which has coughed up some interesting finds in the past, but I won’t be getting there this trip. Besides, I have been placed under a book-buying moratorium because of the puppy.

So instead, I will contemplate the anonymity of hotel rooms and the extraordinary ability of the Montreal Canadiens to blow a two-goal lead in the last two minutes of the stinking game. And then lose the damn thing in the shootout.

    Youch! So close and yet so far–won’t they let you flee into the city for even a little while? If not, um, maybe you can eat at St-Hubert?? All-you-can-eat coleslaw! Small recompense, I know…

    It’s a day of meetings followed by dinner, so I won’t get to flee anywhere. Or have all-you-can-eat coleslaw, alas.
