So, hey, a HUGE thank you to Joe Abercrombie for dropping by and monopolizing yesterday’s entry. Hope he enjoyed the Q&A as much as I did. Especially this quote: “I’m also a big admirer of the writing in some of the recent crop of US TV series. The Wire, the Shield, Deadwood, the Sopranos, Stargate: Atlantis, etc.” Heh. Funny AND kind. I believe someone just scored themselves a free lifetime guest blogger pass.
Saturday is usually a day I sleep in but with Fondy headed to Montreal this morning, I was up at 6:00 a.m. for the 6:30 a.m. drive to the airport. Of course, by the time Fondy was ready, it was actually 7:30 a.m. Still, she got off okay and landed in Montreal at about 5:00 p.m. local time. Tomorrow, she’ll be joining my family (with the exception of yours truly) in celebration of my auntie Jeanette’s 90th birthday. I phoned to pass along my best wishes and ended up spending a good 40 minutes on the phone, ping-ponging back and forth between my gathered relatives and hearing all about the surprise delivery of the 90 birthday roses from three different aunts and four cousins. To be perfectly honest, it was all Fondy’s doing. When it comes to gifts, she’s more the one who comes up with the idea and arranges and pays for everything while I’m more there for back-up in the event something goes horribly awry. So far, so good.
Although I won’t be getting around to doing a mailbag today, I have, of course, read all of your posts, including a request for some behind-the-scenes pics.
