October 13, 2011: Dog Day Afternoon! And Crispy Duck with Mark and Ken!
Today, Akemi and I hit Yaletown (Lulu and Maximus in tow) where we met up with blog semi-regular (apparently, she’ s been all sorts of busy) Nadine and her dog Bella. While we strolled and macaron shoped, Nadine pitched me the merits of The Hunger Games, Lev Grossman, and Comic Con. A pleasant few hours on an atypically sunny Vancouver day…
Above: Bella, ready for business.
Nadine, also ready for business.
The three of them, from left to right: Lulu, Bella, and Maximus. Apparently, at one point while I had popped in to pick up some macarons, Akemi ordered the dogs to sit so she could give them a treat. Bella sat down immediately, then glanced over at an obstinate Lulu, still standing. Bella reached over and batted Lulu with her paw, causing Lulu to sit down. And they all got their treats.
And, the night before last, Akemi and I hit Refuel to catch up with a couple of my old Stargate buddies…
Mark and Ken are still awaiting word on Echoes. Here’s hoping it goes. We need more scifi on t.v.!
