A random scattering of things: me, Kelly, cats, bits of past trips and many things seen around Toronto. All captioned, if you happen to float your mouse over them.
Last week was full of petty frustrations and upheavals, nothing huge, but enough to put a glower on my face, from time to time, and shadow my attention to the many things, big and small, that were lovely and delightful about the week.
Some of the things that were, at times, overshadowed by the grump: The launch for Priscilla Uppal’s new book Projection: Encounters With My Runaway Mother was really fun, and the book is, in part, about movies. Each chapter is named for a film: it starts with Blade Runner and there’s a Throw Momma from the Train chapter. Very promising!
On Saturday we went with Linda Carson to check out Hop Day before making and devouring a delicious fall feast together.

I finished a story, and am quite pleased with it. The construction dudes seem to be on the verge of finishing our courtyard, and have not only turned on the water feature but have added gorgeous blue lights to it.

Even the iO7 upgrade offered a bit of fun and entertainment.

Muppet, you’re one of the folks I have in mind when I post these, because you don’t see my Instagram feed or Facebook. Let me know if it’s all a big yawn, willya?
My recent past, captured in snapshot and, sometimes, magically filtered. If you float your cursor over a given pic, it has a caption. To my astonishment, this works on the WordPress blog and Livejournal.
I have been appearing at FanExpo Canada for the past couple days, selling and signing books and doing panels, and will be there again this afternoon. It has been big, boisterous and fun, and of course the costumed fans are an endless delight. Here are a few of them. My particular fave is Pam and AWOL Archer.
