“It’s quiet”….”Yeah, too quiet”. We’ve all seen and heard that classic western-movie cliche.
Today is Good Friday, 2014. Easter is arguably the most important Christian Holiday of the year. It even tops Christmas. So a quiet weekend should not be too surprising. But here are the hostel, it is a bit of a shock.
If you’ve followed this blog, you will be familiar with Angel and Aine. The “Mad Due”; the “Party Animals; The “Noisy Ones”. Angel is a Kiwi and Aine is from the Emerald Isles. Neither one of this infamous hostel pair can do anything quietly. And when they got together (which was often), the noise level doubled!
Aine finally moved out of the hostel to her own apartment and Angel seemed to take up the slack in the noise department by picking up the pace.
But yesterday, Angel also left the hostel, bound for Sydney, Down Under. She landed her “Dream Job” with a Cruise Line as an “Entertainment Co-Ordinator” on a cruise ship. To those who know her, this seems like a job she was born to do.
We trust Angel will tone it down somewhat; but also convinced that cruise passengers will be in for some fun times. Angel is as gregarious as she is noisy. We are confident that she will behave as Maritime Law has strict penalties against “Mutiny”.
There were a lot of tears last evening when Angel left for the airport. Nonetheless, the hostel is noticably quieter today. But it isn’t over.
Aine doesn’t live far from the hostel and visits regularly. She isn’t here today (at least yet) because we can’t hear her. We’re pretty sure she’ ll drop by shortly.
The truth is many of us miss both of them. We wish Angel all the success in the world and we are now bracing for the arrival of Hurricane Aine.
To Angel from all of us at the Canadiana: We wish you, “Fair winds and following seas.”
