I’m currently on the train from Montreal to Toronto, desperately clinging the hour left on my laptop battery (I left my charger at home in a day-ruining error). I can’t even see out the window, as the snow is intensely coming down. On the walk to the subway this morning to get to the train, I slipped twice onto my ass as the streets are basically ice rinks. What’s more, my train is full of hardcore football fans. I guess all the flights to Toronto for “Grey Cup Weekend” were cancelled (as the man wearing a Winnipeg Blue Bombers jersey across the aisle has informed me), so what is usually a quiet ride will very much not be. Go Blue Bombers!
Update: Apparently half the car is Montreal Alouettes players. I have heard their “cheer” (which sounds like Bonne Fete) five times now.
