Day 3: Ottawa Suzuki Institute

Today I have had a headache all day.  Seriously.  My prevailing theory is that the coffee in the cafeteria is actually decaf, or the dorm is infested with something awful.  Grrr.

The day was fine, although probably involved way too many desserts.  (Three).  Let me explain.

The morning was much like the day before.  Breakfast, three observations.

Lunch was…I don’t even remember.  Beefaroni type meal which I supplemented with iceburg lettuce, broccoli and cottage cheese from the salad bar.  I was completely, utterly exhausted so I thought a piece of pie might help.  It did.  A little.

Then Holly and I went to the Fudge Shop.  We promised our class we would bring them fudge.  It is called Nana’s Fudge ‘n Stuff.  We just got some of the regular fudge, which we were told is a best seller. 


I am holding a small plate of fudge. 

So in class I ate three small pieces of fudge. 

Dinner was salisbury steak and mashed potatoes.  Seriously.  It was salisbury steak.  I don’t know that I have ever had that before.  I thought it only existed in fiction.

After dinner was the Brian Lewis recital, which was followed by a reception.  The recital was lovely, and then we made a quick trip to Walmart (where I happened upon some fantastic fourth of July stuff!).  We then headed to where we had been told the reception was…and there was nothing there.  Absolutely nothing.

We were pretty ticked.  There have been some organizational/communication issues here, and some room changes and venue changes, but if you email people to invite them to a reception and the reception venue gets changed, you should tell them.

We sat around briefly and moped.  And then decided to hit up the DQ for mini-blizzards.  I had Reese’s peanut butter cup.  It was glorious.

  1. Bummer about the reception! Two summers ago they had a chocolate fountain. What did Brian play?
