If it’s Monday, I’m at Favorite Thing Ever, blogging about Eddie Izzard.
(Psst! While you’re there, did you see Kelly’s pitch for her beloved girly-girl shoes?)
Try the chard, it’s delicious:
This being Monday, I am at Favorite Thing Ever, telling you all about how much I love a good feature article, especially if it’s by Pamela Coloff, and how this is entirely Snuffy‘s fault.
Kelly, meanwhile, posted a recent piece on Mika, musical love child of George Michael and Freddy Mercury, and kormantic sings the praises of a band called Flight of the Conchords.
In the spirit of being grateful, I offer this deep thought: be glad you don’t have one of these on you!
It’s possible you’ve noticed that over at Favorite Thing Ever
, we really make a point of being partial. Hugely partial. Don’t believe me? Well, my “review” post this morning
is on my very own wonderful first novel, Indigo Springs
Pretty brassy, right? Well, let me go on to correct what I’ve said above by being even more shameless! How is that possible, you ask? Because things have happened. I’m not just on about Oh, that, my first novel yadda yadda snore Indigo Springs, anymore, as I am about my OMG, holy Carp, I can’t believe it’s true but I have been honored with the Sunburst Award for Canadian Literature of the Fantastic, Eeee! first novel. (still entitled Indigo Springs).
Cough. So, yes. I’d written the FtE entry quite a few days ago, to drive home the idea that we seriously are a site of shameless squee. The Sunburst folks contacted me on Saturday, and asked me to keep it quiet until they sent out press releases. I’ve been on a cloud ever since. Now, finally, I get to tell you.
(I feel I should be humble and grateful at this juncture, and I am very grateful and totally thrilled… but humility kinda goes against the shameless squeeing vein.)
My book. It’s my first baby. Really, really, it is my fave thing ever… at least until the next one comes out.
My post today at Favorite Thing Ever is about the awesomely creepy Minette Walters novel, The Shape of Snakes.
And in case you missed it, Kelly gives a most excellent pitch for Twitch City – The Complete Series, whose don’t miss central thesis is: Molly Parker is Lickable.
Other sources of televisual excitement in Dualand include the season premieres of both House and Castle, not to mention the CBC documentary: Queen Elizabeth in 3D. Really. That last bit isn’t a joke.
