connecting

Last week we met Lone Primate, an absolutely lovely evening. LP's (extremely flattering) description of that event is here, with some nice pictures.

Today it's dim sum with M@. I'm looking forward to getting a copy of his new book. (M@, is there a link?).

Last night we had dinner with Ellen The Amazing Dogsitter and her partner Paul. Although Ellen doesn't blog, we connected through Craigslist.

I am incredibly happy and appreciative to be meeting friends here in our still-new home. I feel myself putting down roots, and it's a good feeling. Long-time readers will forgive my repetition of a constant theme: without the internet, this would have been a far more difficult and lonelier experience.

I think I will steal the title of Lone Primate's post for this one. Sometimes it's so hard to think of one word!

Note to James: Ellen and Paul wanted to meet for sushi (which of course is always fine with me), and Ellen suggested Sushi On Bloor. So we've checked off another T.O. sushi joint! :)

The best link right now is http://www.matthewbin.com. But we should have online ordering available in a short time, as well as have it available from Chapters and Amazon.

My publisher has been a little slow on this, unfortunately.

Thanks, and I'll see all y'all in a couple of hours!

It is ever thus.

Moreso when the publisher is as green as I am in the biz, and is a little stretched for personnel... but that's okay. It'll get done, we'll keep putting the book out there, and we'll look back from the top of the Times best seller list and laugh... oh, how we'll laugh...

Sushi On Bloor's a nice place. Very cozy, and good food. Be sure to check the specials on the walls, they often have interesting things up there.
