Hello !

For those of you who know how much I love George Stroumboulopoulos and his tv show, you will be happy to hear that I have been to the recording of one of his shows at CBC last Monday!

At this moment, I didn't know I was about to realize one of my dreams: meet him and talk with him. You know, I have been watching his tv show for years now and he is really one of my idols. We were waiting in lines to get into the studio, when he arrived and came to say "hi" to every guest.

It was already enough for me, I felt like I was in heaven! At the end of the show, I had the chance to take a picture with him, he gave me a hug and talked with me for about 5 minutes! He was asking about my internship and my life in Quebec. I have met a lot of "celebrities" (Jean-Thomas Jobin, Guy Lafleur, Mathieu Dandenault and others) but George is the nicest on earth!

The studio was awesome and the guests too: Trixx -a comedian- and Lyriq Bent who played a police officer in the Saw movies. I also had the chance to meet Nick Kypreos (who used to play in the NHL) and he is a hockey analyst for Sportsnet. This guy is really funny and he made a couple of jokes about the Montreal Canadiens!!!

For sure, that was one of the best days of my life so far! I will try to have tickets for the show next Monday.

Other stuff less important also happened:

- I have been to the Hockey Hall of Fame
-*Be careful, disgusting story here* One of the girls in my room has been sick because of alcohol the other night. She threw up everywhere in the room: on the walls, on the floor, in the toilet, in her bed and even in the bed of the girl under her (luckily, it was not me!!).
- I have been to a restaurant called "Smoke's Poutinerie" where I had the best poutine ever: The Montreal one, which includes smoked meat! (picture)
- I led various tours and held many activities such as games in the hostel.
