Welcome back to your regularly scheduled programming! Thanks so much to Emer for covering for me in my absence last week. For you see, I was busy stampeding. Yes boys and girls, this little Egyptian Canadian girl was at The Calgary Stampede.
I’ve been to Calgary before. Having worked four years now for a Calgary based company, at least one trip to Canada’s texas was sure to be in order, and it happened fairly early on in my tenure here. Suffice it to say, I was unimpressed with the new financial capital of Canada. Downtown was small, and the streets were dead by 6pm. Not much was available to entertain a die hard city girl like me. So when my lovely friend Shevaughn came up with the idea that a bunch of us head out west and stampede it up for an early celebration of her birthday, I was down for the adventure but not about to get my hopes up for a rollicking good time. Boy, was I ever in for a surprise.
