Rock star sightings? NONE so far. I think everybody's still in Halifax, or Montreal, on account of so many planes turning back because of freezing rain and fog and general nasty weather. We were lucky to land when we did, because on the first try we sat on the plane for half an hour before it was decided to not take the chance. I'm cool with that. Except I'd already taken my little white pill so I was on super-slow-motion by then and Jethro had to sort of peel me out of my seat and gently drag me back through the airport. I was basically a Ramones song for awhile there.
Seriously, two rounds of applause for the captain when he safely landed that big bird!
So no rockstars, however, I did walk past the one and only BEN MULRONEY! Sorry Non-Canucks, you might not know him and let me tell you he is THE nicest guy on TV. He is even nicer than Ryan Seacrest. If they were in the same room they'd spend an hour going, "No, thank you, no I insist, after you, etc."
He looks exactly the same in real life too!
St John's looks just like I hoped it would, as in, the way those tourism commercials brag it up to be.
Yes, the houses really are all different colours! And they're all built into the hills like this! It's so purty!
I think you walk downhill and take an cab home? Better have good brakes, and learn how to start off on a hill in your standard shift car!
And the people here are wonderful. I have never met a Newfie I didn't like and so far the fine people of St John's are proving it. We have to bring the kids back here someday.
Oh look! Check out this magnificent building:
And I'm posting this for my mom because I can't wait until I get home:
Must go- I'm off to meet Cara and family!
