L'aventure Québecois de Domo-Kun [Nov. 11th, 2003|05:53 pm]
한국 사람이 아니다
[Current Mood |bouncybouncy]

Left: Domo-Kun waits (im)patiently at the gate, boarding pass in hand.

Right: Desperately bored, he decides to check his email at the public internet kiosk.




Left: Finally, they call the passengers for boarding. Domo is, unsurprisingly, first in line.

Right: Aboard the plane, Domo-Kun fastens his seatbelt and returns his seat and tray-tables to their upright and locked positions.




Left: Domo-Kun gratefully accepts a complimentary beverage...

Right: ...And eats some fabriqué-au-Québec chips.




Left: Domo-Kun catches a ride to his connection at Dorval.

Right: Waiting to board the plane to Québec City.




Left: Domo-Kun checks out how tiny the plane is...it has propellers!

Right: Home-away-from-home at last...Domo-Kun at the Courtyard Marriott, delightfully located less than a block from the St. Jean Gate at Place D'Youville.




Left: Domo-Kun wanted to go skating in the rink in front of the hotel at Place d'Youville, but they didn't have rental skates that fit him...

Right: ...So he walked up to the Plains of Abraham and looked at Québec's Parliment buildings and the Citadel.




Left: Domo-Kun on the Terrasse Dufferin, with Château Frontenac behind him.

Right: After a crazy night on the Grande-Allée, Domo-Kun recovers with a bottle of seltzer.

Re: Heehehehe!!

I do need to bring him to NYC...
I took him the last time, but for some reason never took the photos.
It's a fun way to do tourist snaps, actually...

Funny: I was thinking about the trip today...mainly about getting my haircut, but also about when I shouls get my bus ticket...

Too bad I didn't have Domo in Chicago, eh?

Re: Heehehehe!!

I think he's a boy. Mainly because in the Japanese TV spots, he has a crush on this little weasel girl.

Re: aww...

LOL...
I can't express the amount of fun it was to walk around Québec on Friday with Domo-Kun...

He will definitely be in NYC...and I just checked: I have $110 in cash from selling my fountain pens for that weekend! Wa-hey...

Re: aww...

Yay! Vodka!

For some reason I have three bottles in my freezer... a bottle of Skyy, a bottle of Stoli and a bottle of Absolut Citron... Guess I should have a party?

Re: aww...

This place is very cool, I can't think of the name currently but its all red inside and has "Party" literature.

*squee!*

I think Domo-Kun needs his own website. Right alongside Hi Monkey.

I just laughed so hard. These photos and commentary are hysterical.

Were people around you totally cracking up or what? The photo of him w/the seltzer is a riot.

The family sitting next to me on the plane loved it. It was the woman in the seat beside me who had the ideas for the photos of him eating and drinking on the flight.

The woman driving the cart thought I was crazy. Apart from that, no one really seemed to notice.

Next, Domo does Manhattan!
