>Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
I am in currently in Great Falls, Montana the home of housemate, and in the interest of full disclosure, boyfriend, John. So all of the lectures about not dating your housemates that we got at orientation apparently weren’t too effective. But its been a couple of months now, and things are going great. We still aren’t sure if living together in the Casa de Romero qualifies as “living in sin,” but we’ll take our chances.
It’s nice to have a break from work for a few days and get of Spokane. Besides the retreat, a day trip to Couer D’Alene and the overnight in Yakima, I haven’t left the city at all. With a bike being my main form of transportation, my life has been pretty confined to the 2.5 miles between our house and downtown. Spokane is nice and all, but I was definitely ready for a change in pace.
Great Falls is a nice town, about twice the size of Blacksburg. I think there are about as many casinos as people here. I’ve never seen so many casinos. Granted, growing up in Virginia, I’ve never really seen any. I played Keno at a bar last night. (They have gambling machines right in the bar – this place is ridiculous). I lost a dollar, and probably embarrassed John seeing as how Great Falls natives are too cool for that kind of behavior.
The Northwest is a different place, I’ll tell you that. But I still got to watch the Tech/UVA game today. Go Hokies!
