Alas, when I made my plans to go into downtown Montreal today, one thing I didn't know was that my mother had to take the Hyundai Sonata in for repairs today to get them out of the way before the big move in mid-December, so I was pretty much stuck in Pincourt as I have no one to take me to get the bus in Sainte Anne de Bellevue. But I'm still going to buy something today. I'll just go over to the local mall after ABC World News Tonight and browse around for something cheap, like a cheap computer game or maybe a previously-viewed copy of Kill Bill vol. 2 from Blockbuster. It's not like I'll really have any more reasons to visit the Faubourg de L'Ile once we're gone; it's a regional shopping centre which is the largest shopping centre in between the island of Montreal and, at the very least, Cornwall, Ontario, but that's not saying much; it's not a destination mall like Fairview Pointe-Claire, some place you'd go out of your way to shop at.
BUY NOTHING DAY BUY SOMETHING NICE FOR YOURSELF AND PISS OFF A COMMUNIST DAY: UPDATE
I can't have a Big Mac because the closest McDonald's to me is across the Taschereau Bridge and on the far side of Dorion, and, although I have walked there before, I don't want to be out walking for at least 2½ hours, but I have a substitute idea that will be more than enough compensation for the "pissing Communists off" aspect of my plans. At least depending on how much change I have.
