Phew.

That's the only way I can sum up the last month. As quickly as my first semester here in Oz came and went, so did my vacation time back home. I didn't do a lot, but in that accomplished a great deal. I got to spend some much needed time with my family and friends (including meeting some more bloggers), I got my coffee fix a few times over, remembered what it was to have a home-cooked meal again, and just had a lot of laughs.

Ohh and I almost sort of got to see Matt Damon. Almost sorta not really. The Toronto International Film Festival had started while I was home and Jason Bourne himself (ie Matt Damon) was in town doing a press conference for the organization he is now a part of for children called OneXOne (one by one http://www.onexonecampaign.com/). He held a gala in Toronto with Wyclef Jean and Shakira. I happened to be driving downtown at the time when the press conference was going on outside...well, ok, truthfully, what I expect was the press conference for the gala since there was a white tent set up and tons of cameras and photographers with bright lights. Only problem was that whoever was inside had their backs toward the tent part that faced outside but I could tell they were sitting there since the cameras were pointed and flashing in that direction. There was a huge crowd surrounding the outside, stretching to get a glimpse. There was a humongous onexone banner on the building next to the tent...

So yes, I am assuming, with every bit of logic, that Matt Damon was inside and the hand that I think I saw was his. Since I had a car full of relatives I was supposed to be giving a tour of Toronto to, and I was the one driving, I had to smother the desire to leap out the car and go running down the street towards him.

It was him. It had to be.

Please don't burst my bubble. I'm very content in it.
