Counting Down...

In a week from now Anime North will be essentially over, I've just got to keep telling myself that.

Right now, everything is going well. I've scarcely gotten any emails in the past couple of days that I could deal with right away, and this weekend has actually been pretty quiet con-wise. We've got the final big meeting tomorrow, got a few issues to settle but it's looking good right now. What we need to have happen is for everyone to show up and do their jobs and we're going to have an excellent con this year.

Had meetings in the last two weeks with both hotels and the TCC, and got all the set-up matters settled. Program books are printed, guests are all confirmed. All we really need is decent weather next weekend.

I had some final modifications to make to my current project at work this week, and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to finish them in time (I'm taking all of next week off), but everything got done on Friday and the clients are happy with it. It's a big load off my mind.

Had a nice long bike ride yesterday, which was great aside from the small wipe-up in the Don Valley. There's a place where the bike trail sometimes has water running over it. You're suppose to walk your bike around it, but I've never had a problem going thru it, only it was a lot deeper than normal this time, my bike slipped out from under me, and I landed in several centimeters of water. I most just got wet, so after resting for a few minutes I got back on. I was certainly luckier than a guy I saw a half-hour later. He was sitting on the side of the trail with three of his friends, with the whole lower part of his face bloody, looks like he landed on it.

It was also Don Hutton's 50th birthday yesterday, and I stopped by his party for a while. Today was brunch with Paul and Susan at Mitzi's (jealous owlfish?). All fun.

Maybe I'll come down for a visit later in the summer anyway, that'd be fun!

Where exactly do you live now again?

Hopefully you got my text. I'll be there. Probably not until mid afternoon Friday, but I'll be there. Once I'm there, I can sit and not move, so it's okay.

Yes, I got your message Patti, was going to reply today. Thanks a lot.
