Harry Potter and Poutine

 So I forgot to blog about the amazingness that was the Yule Ball that the Harry Potter Alliance had at Ithaca last week. Here are some pics of the awesome (and yes, there was butterbeer).

It was a wonderful, dorky night.

This weekend, the awesome continued with a trip to Ottawa with the honors program for the Winderlude festival!

Ok and at this restaurant we really honest to god did not know if we were supposed to tip in Ottawa, and we asked our waitress. She looked pretty perplexed and asked, "Is this a trick question?" to which we replied that no, no it wasn't. We were 100% serious. So she explained tipping to us (5% for meh, 10 % for ok you did your job and 15% for AWESOME!). She deff earned her 15%.

It was an exhausting day (5:45 am alarm and later than midnight arrival back at IC) but it was really fun to see Canada's capital! Shout out to my Aunt Monica and cousin Tessa for giving me my amazingly warm and wonderful coat. It probably saved me from frostbite.
