Last night was the annual guide ball in the West Block ballroom. This year it was Oscar themed, which made it easy to dress up for. I wore a new blue shirt that I bought at Simons in Québec, with a black suit. It was a really fun evening. Almost all of the guides were there, including the East Block guides, the infotenters, and some of the scanners.

There was lots of food, and being that it was the Oscars there were awards for everyone! They were all funny, although most of them were inside jokes. For example, Meena won the "most visible minority" (she always jokes about how she`s brown), and Genviève won "most communist monopoly player" (her and I shared money and land while playing Monopoly). I wasn`t too surprised by my prize -"Scariest Spice". After the food and awards was lots of dancing.
Today is the Fête Nationale de l'Acadie! It`s been 400 years of French settlement in Acadia, and 250 years since Le Grand Dérangement (the deportations by the British).
