I’d asked my neighbour, if I could come pick up my vacuum that he’d borrowed from me after he was off work today and he said he’d run it over for me. I asked him if he wanted to chill for a bit. So we sat around and chatted about video games and such, his girlfriend is also gone for the week with the rest of the teachers, and I asked him if he wanted to hang around for some chow. So I made stir-fry for us and we watched the Apprentice followed by some more chatting and general chilling. It was nice to have some company after all these days of minimal human interaction. I’m glad that I invited him to stay for a bit… I often don’t think to ask these things because I’m afraid that I won’t have anything interesting for the person to do or talk about and they’ll just be bored.
There’s been blizzard in Iqualuit for the past two days so I’m starting to wonder if the teachers are going to make it out tomorrow or not. B’s flight doesn’t leave until 5 o’clock in the evening but who knows how long the blizzard is going to last for. Today there were no taxis running or anything because it was so bad. So I guess I’ll have to wait until tomorrow and see.
