My cousin Claire owns this Cafe, Mon Ami, in downtown Vancouver (not Canada, there’s a Vancouver in Washington state too & just across the river from Portland). They serve crepes, coffee, beer, wine, etc. Its all delicious and I like the atmosphere a lot. My mom and I were driving home from NW Portland and she didn’t want the day to end yet so we decided to stop by Claire’s for coffee. We got there and found out it was trivia night (!) so we called my dad to stop in on his way home from work and Claire called her mom, my aunt Lisa to come down too. A spontaneous family get-together! : )
We were trying to think of team names and my aunt asked what the word for eggplant is in Japanese, because she had been considering eggplant colored wall paint. “Nasu,” I told her. And so the O’Connors joined forces and became Team Nasu.
The special for the night: This hefeweisen and a crepe with Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil. Mmmm.
Pretty, no? Stop by if you live in the area. Well, if you wanted to fly across the world to check it out I guess that would be really…impressive (?) too.
So…my external hard drive has broken (with all my photos & music & everything!) so this week, as I’m back up in Seattle, I will be taking it to a data recovery service. Wish me luck please that they are successful!!! Since I’ve been back I’ve been using my parents’ computer to upload new photos so I’m not sure what I’ll do from now on since there is not a lot of space on my laptop…but I’ll figure something out! Really cross your fingers though, ok? Pretty please?
