Home! Just six months away! Refuel! Bella Gelateria! A backyard for the dogs! My own bed! My home theater room! Yep. 2012 is gonna be sweet!
Yet another Toronto weekend segueing into yet another week in Toronto.
Please keep posting your baby name suggestions for the Name Trevor’s Baby contest. I narrow down the list to the three finalists this week and then the voting begins. Our assistant is understandably uncertain about the whole contest so let’s put his mind at ease by offering up a name that would’ve made Moon Unit Zappa’s parents proud!
A quickie reminder to pick up/read/finish up July’s Book of the Month Club pick: Sweet Tooth, by Jeff Lemire. It’s a more-than-manageable trade paperback, the first volume of a terrific and unique series, so make the effort! Author Jeff Lemire will be joining us the week of July 4th to field your questions.

DP writes: “How do you know the guy who parked half on the street is an -sshole?”
Answer: Yes, it’s possible he was rushing to deliver his pregnant wife to the emergency ward before she gave birth – mistaking a convenience store for a hospital.

Lewis writes: “What did Carl say when he found out that Rachel Skarsten was cast as Delia?”
Answer: He was delighted because, of course, he worked with her when she was just a kid. When I told Rachel that Carl was involved in the show, she was equally delighted – but her mother especially so. Carl, that old charmer.
