Back in the Stargate days, when I used to come into the office Monday mornings and people would ask me about my weekend, I would simply direct them to the blog. It’s always been a fairly simple way to keep tabs on me. So it comes as no surprise that I had no less than four friends reach out to me over the last day or so suggesting we get together while I’m in town. It’s not that I’m unsociable (although, to be fair, I’m a little unsociable), but more that I’ve dedicated this weekend to mom, dogs, and rewrites.
Still, it’s always great to catch up with friends, some of whom I haven’t seen in 20 years (as was the case with two of the people I met this afternoon).
And then, tonight, I got together with my old buddy Bruce, aka Sushi Man (because he once ate over 40 pieces of sushi in one sitting). [Correction: Bruce informs he it was, in fact, 60+ pieces of sushi. This blog regrets the error.] No sushi on today’s menu, just a lot of smoked meat and sides…
Sush aka Bruce aka Smokey (for this night only).
What is this, chopped liver? Why, yes, as a matter of fact, it is.
The hot karnatzels.
And smoked meat of course, compliments of my favorite place for smoked meat = Smoked Meat Pete
So, yesterday, in addition to finishing a first draft of that rewrite, I also did a little reading. I read a total of three books, allowing me to maintain my book a day average on the year. How long can I hold this up?
Meanwhile, I’m apparently missing quite the windstorm in Toronto. Apparently, a couple of throw pillows found their way from the hotel balcony across the street onto our terrace. I’m holding out hope we can score a full patio set for our new place. Fingers crossed!
