By: imahockeynut

Hi, my name is Regina and I'm looking to travel the world. My mom says that my name means queen in latin. Now I've become fascinated with queens and hope to learn more about them.

Today I meet my two siblings, RusselltheBear and PollyWally. I was a little nervous meeting them.

But they were really nice and made me feel at home.

Montreal, QC, Canada - 23rd January 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today was a quiet day, mom was cleaning so I read one of her school's newspaper called The Link with RusselltheBear.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4035/4299783692_4dc58ed6f3_m.jpg

Later we sat down to watch a movie together called Elizabeth: The Golden Age. Yay, a movie about a queen. Mom rented it off Zip.ca, the Canadian version of Netflicks.com.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4062/4299788636_b39c665ed1_m.jpg

Snacked on some cheese while we watched the movie.

I think Elizabeth was a fantastic queen and mom agrees with me. She said that she has books on Elizabeth and Mary, Queen of Scots that I can read anytime I want. Thanks mom :D!

Montreal, QC, Canada - 24th January 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today went out, yay! Mom had to do some shopping, (basically spending a gift card she got for Christmas. We took the metro to get there.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2718/4301786971_7cac504634_m.jpg

We went to a store called Future Shop which sells movies, videos games, computers and other electronics. The store is the old Montreal Forum where the Montreal Canadiens played before they new arena further downtown. Now it's an entertainment complex.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2800/4302556246_776e02178a_m.jpg

Where I stand is approximately where centre ice was located.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4060/4301824159_2d64d3eb0e_m.jpg

This is a statue of Maurice Richard (I think?) who was arguable their best player of all time and they've been around for a long time, (for a 100 years already).
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4044/4302579678_5579c30d48_m.jpg

These seats are authentic seats from the old Forum. Feels like I'm sitting on History. After we went to see The Book of Eli. (did I forget to mention there was a movie theatre in here to?), which was a pretty good movie except the ending though. I won't say what happened so I don't spoil the movie for anyone.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4063/4301835701_f60d1f4bed_m.jpg

Later me, mom and PollyWally threw a going away party for RusselltheBear. We had some sparkling wine. That's RusselltheBear trying to open the bottle, it was a little hard for him so mom helped him out.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2685/4301839497_d5a677ef43_m.jpg

We also had a spaghetti dinner which was delicious.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4001/4302593836_04f42095f7_m.jpg

And we had a candy called Fuzzy Peaches for desert which was also delicious.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4020/4302600288_753d7e4e59_m.jpg

Well that's it for today. Tomorrow we say goodbye for now to RusselltheBear. Hopefully he will have fun in China.

Today was kind of a sad day, RusselltheBear is leaving today to start his adventures. We're happy that he's starting his travels but sad that he's leaving.

PollyWally, mom and I said goodbye to RusselltheBear.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4052/4304166229_efc5fd9366_m.jpg

We didn't let him leave without giving him a big hug. Happy travels bro :D!

When mom came back, she brought treats. It was the first time I tried these chips but they were a little too spicy. Luckily I had some water to drink.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4012/4304921992_6b99268268_m.jpg

Then we played video games on mom's Wii. First we played Animal Crossing: City Folk
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2560/4305246117_7b170b19e5_m.jpg

That's me on action.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4062/4305236159_d1bd7f95e5_m.jpg

Then we played Super Paper Mario...not your average Mario game.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2781/4305985476_88a66592e5_m.jpg

Here's another action shot me playing.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4055/4305992786_af630d1be7_m.jpg

Heading off to bed now  :)! Hopefully I'll start my adventures soon...

Montreal, QC, Canada - 30th January 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today we stayed in because it was too cold outside. Mom said outside feels like around -33, yikes! But apparently it's normal around here though Mom doesn't like the cold much.

First while mom was doing a little studying, I relaxed reading aone of mom's books about Queen Elizabeth I.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4050/4318087210_3fdc24762b_m.jpg

It's was an interesting read so far. What an interesting life!
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4072/4317356727_4e5926874c_m.jpg

Later we watched Hockey Day in Canada which is held everyday to celebrate the game of hockey. This year it was held in Stratford, ON, home of the world famous Shakespearean Festival.  We watched and heard different hockey stories about teamwork and stuff from all over the country.

Then after all 6 Canadian NHL fteams face each other. Mom didn't care about the first game (Montreal Canadiens vs. Ottawa Senators) because she was not a big fan of either team.

The second game she was more interested in because one of her favourite teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs were playing against the Vancouver Cancucks. The Leafs were up 3-0 after the 1st but ultimately lost 5-3, mom was not happy.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4068/4317367437_6f251c3867_m.jpg

The 3rd and final game had the Edmonton Oilers Vs. the Calgary aka the Battle of Alberta. Mom was happy that her Flames were leading 5-1 after the 2nd and eventually won 6-1. Mom was happy that one of her teams won.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4050/4318103478_0cd0169f5f_m.jpg

Time for bed :D!

Montreal, QC, Canada - 1st February 2010

By: imahockeynut

Today was an exciting day, mom's brother (that would make him my uncle) is coming to visit. He came all the way from Toronto on a train  :o! But first mom had to clean her apartment a little bit and do some laundry, (she had no clean towels).

So we gathered up all the dirty towels and put them in the laundry bag. (Those letters on the bag are mom's sorority's letters).
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4040/4323384469_f674dd39b0_m.jpg

Mom let me pushed the button to go to the laundry which is on the top floor.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4013/4323431767_aa77648684_m.jpg

We watched mom put the towels into the washing machine.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2796/4323387861_f743271629_m.jpg
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2690/4323391273_719e5c0a4c_m.jpg

Look at me in the washing machine, hopefully I won't fall in.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4005/4324132594_72f109bf07_m.jpg

While waiting for the towels to wash, we sat by the window. What an amazing view from the laundry room.

After enjoying the scenery, we chilled out on this chair. Not too comfortable.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2799/4323420163_2abfe0c9fe_m.jpg

When the towels were done in the washer, mom put the them in the dryer.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2700/4323401893_84c33b230b_m.jpg

The towels are ready to be dried now, hopefully mom won't closed the dryer door on us.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4036/4324141208_4b43e0fd6b_m.jpg

After we were thankfully not left in the dryer, we went to see if we could go on the balcony on the other side of the building. I tried to open the door, but it was lock and it looked like it was cold outside so I'm glad we stayed in.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4032/4323424889_8dfc2a04d3_m.jpg

We then went downstairs to check the mail. Mom let me open the mailbox.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4007/4323408327_c2d9671333_m.jpg

Mom got a postcard from the Netherlands and a movie.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4071/4323416931_a35937dc18_m.jpg

Back upstairs, PollyWally and I played with a Halloween puzzle.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4047/4323438617_5ba5ea2459_m.jpg

When the towels we done, mom wrapped us in some warm towels while she put away the others.

Yay! We are finally on our way to pick up my uncle. We took the Metro to the train station. Here we are at Lionel-Groulx Metro station to switch lines, from the Green line to the Orange line.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4052/4324181870_4c41e481e3_m.jpg

We finally made it to Central Station after a long enough delay on the metro. We were at one metro station for about 15 minutes. Apparently there was a fire in the metro, so that cause the delay. Luckily we arrived safe and sound.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4047/4324191478_3e4fa8f2b1_m.jpg

His train was delayed so we sat down and waited. Mom brought us a treat while we waited.

http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4044/4323461055_fdbedcacd7_m.jpg

His train is almost here, we waited by the gate until it arrived.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4052/4323449653_b1bd55a23e_m.jpg

We didn't do much after that. My uncle actually fell asleep while we watched some TV. Maybe we'll do something tomorrow?

Today Mom showed us a strange-looking envelope. PollyWally and I wondered what was inside.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4053/4329581464_906f69d36b.jpg

When we opened the envelope, we found a moose TV sticking out of it.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4045/4328848809_61642671e3.jpg

We found out is name is Munchy Moose. He is a very nice moose from the States. He showed as a postcard that his mom sent with him.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4009/4329591878_b01da54634.jpg

We sat around and got to know each other a little bit. We also talked about traveling and where we wanted to go.

After Mom showed Munchy Moose around, we had McDonald's for dinner. The Big Mac was delicious.

Then we sat down and watch a show called Little Britain USA, it was really funny.

Today we went to see a movie called From Paris with Love. It was playing at a movie theatre in the old Montreal Forum where the Montreal Canadien's used to play until they moved to a newer arena further downtown. Now it's an entertainment complex with restaurants, a movie theatre, a comedy club and some stores.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4014/4337347883_2e59152bf4.jpg

This is approximately where centre ice was when the Forum was still used as a arena.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2726/4338159060_721df65e2e.jpg

This is a statue of Maurice Richard, one of the greatest Habs players of all time.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4020/4337391515_922f0b13fd.jpg

We were a little early for the movie, so we sat around relaxed on an authentic seat from the Forum.

While sitting down, I notice that their Christmas is still up. Don't they know that it's February now?
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4002/4337363145_d9f12e37a1.jpg
 
Finally we get to our seat. That's me enjoying a blue raspberry icee or slushie.  The movie was very good but I won't say anything else because I don't want to spoil it if you want to see the movie.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2784/4337439635_734651171c.jpg

Later, we watched some hockey. First we watch mom's favourite team, the Toronto Maple Leafs face their provincial rivals the Ottawa Senators. The Leafs won 5-0 and mom was very happy.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2569/4338187904_ca54f8b151.jpg

After we watched another hockey game, this time it was the Edmonton Oilers against the Colorado Avalanche (one of mom's other favourite team),  The Avalanche won 3-0 which made my host even more happy.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4032/4337449105_05d67295bd.jpg

Tomorrow we're going to watch the Super Bowl, can't wait :D!

We started off the day with some breakfast. We had a very delicious donut and some yogurt.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4053/4343892508_bfa345343a.jpg

After breakfast, we played some video games. That's me playing Animal Crossing: City Folks, mailing a letter to someone.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2802/4343163889_82316aec56.jpg

Before the game, Mom got some snacks to eat. One bowl has Lay's Ketchup chips and the other bowl has Miss Vickie's Jalapeno chips. I preferred the ketchup chips.
http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4011/4343182699_b9a22aff07.jpg

Mom also gave us some beer to wash down the chips.
http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2799/4343176737_f66bea53ce.jpg

Then we watched the game. It was a good game overall but Mom was disappointed that her Colts didn't win but she said that there was always next year.
