Hmmm, I wont into, rather explain a bit about whats happened since my PF vacation.... We'll do this in "life" segments of the last year and a half or so. We'll start with the end of a wow addiction (don't do wow kids).. Krys (GF of near 5 yrs) cheats on me and we break up. Was on vent a lot, French Canadian woman would come on quite a bit, started singing on "tallent nights" and by request. Eventually just started talking with her, fell completely in love (awwww...) This was in Sept or so last year. Due to my job, had free calls to Canada (woot) (and a employee phone plan for Secondary for a year or so) this was a good thing esp with near 3k minutes a month calling this French woman. (She taught herself english by singing & playing games online - mad props to her) Time goes by, decide to see each other in person. I flew from Oregon -> Quebec Ca. in March. (Btw, NEVER tell customs a story like this, guaranteed to get you held for a few hours and miss your connection) Stay 8 days & 9 amazing nights with her. She has a little boy named Noah who's turning 2 this November, met him the last 2 days I was there. Also met some of her family. Next, amazing French woman visits Oregon in July for another amazing 8 days & 9 nights. I introduce her to all my family and on July 24th I take her to the beach (which she's never seen before) and propose to the beautiful French woman. We become engaged! A little over a week ago on Oct 3rd I flew from PDX in Oregon -> Ft Worth Tx -> Montreal. And again I learn an important lesson with customs. Asking for the maximum of a visa will cause you several hours of "special time" with these lovely agents... So I am currently in Quebec Ca. in the city of Trois-Rivieres. Its about an hour & a half from Montreal. Enrolled in online part of my college for this term & desperately trying to learn french at the same time. Figured I'd come back I'll post some pictures in a bit too.
