Bundle up, kids! It’s cold outside. It’s I’m-not-going-out-unless-I-absolutely-have-to cold. And it’s going to get even colder. I mean, come on! What happened to the promise of global warming? Spring in winter? Summer in autumn? A world safe from runaway icebergs and douchey ski pros. More of this –
And less of this –
Despite the deep freeze, I did venture out tonight to join my buddy Ivon and actor Jeff Teravainen for dinner. Some drinks, some burgers, some nice conversation, and we wrapped things up with an apple pie sundae and Jeff going to town on everyone’s fries. I’m a big fan of the guy, and not just because he picked up the tab.
Tomorrow, it’s an early morning for Lulu and Suji who will be heading over to our new dogsitter’s place where they will be spending the night. This will mark the first night Suji will be separated from Akemi since we adopted her last year. She’s in great hands, but I’m very curious how she’s going to react. She can be a little…testy.
While the dogs are away at the their B&B (Bed and Barkfest), Akemi and I are going to take the opportunity to take a quick trip to Montreal where we will spend tomorrow afternoon and Thursday morning checking out condos. With my recent move cross-country, I thought it might be nice to have a pied-a-terre in the city of smoked meat and strippers. Who knows? Maybe we’ll end up neighbors of actor Anthony Lemke who now calls Montreal home. Or, at least, Home A.
Only 19 reading days until the year draws to a close and really, when you think about it, it’s actually less than that as I’ll need to post my Best Books of 2017 blog entry before or by the 31st. This was a pretty good reading year and, given the sheer volume, I suppose it makes sense. I’m at 232 books on the year and want to hit 250 when all is said and done (A new record by the way).
There’s still time! Recommend me a great book that was published in 2017.
