Salut

My first morning in Montreal! I'm stealing some very sketch wireless signal from a nearby apartment, and sitting on the floor of my empty living room. But damn, these floors are nice! Original hardwood, and the walls have beautiful moldings, with lintels over each doorway and even details on the ceiling. The place is gorgeous. We already tried out the clawfoot tub, and it was like a little slice of Heaven.

Going to head to Complexe Desjardins, the big mall downtown, to switch my Rogers cell to a local # and pick up some stuff for the bedroom (pillows would be a nice addition to our rockin air mattress). So far, the cats seem to be co-existing peacefully, or at least relatively so.

Weather is muggy with sporadic rain, but not too bad. So far, I love the neighborhood around the Village, and I'm excited about more exploring.

A bien tot

Not ready to say goodbye

Here's a CSI: Las Vegas classic GSR moment to mark my departure from Vancouver for a second time. My next blog post will be from Montreal.

Vancouver, j'taime.

Kids Coming Out Younger

Newsweek just ran this article on Lawrence King. What do you think? It's patronizing in parts, especially when it attempts to discuss poverty and drug use. But it does raise a few good points about schools and their inability or unwillingness to incorporate sexual diversity.

Strap On Yer Holy-Shit-Goggles

Moving to Montreal in 11 days. 11 days! Just got a sweet new phone for free, which is a plus. Going to Kelowna for some down-time in a few days, and then we're off! 2 years of Quebecois culture (i.e., culture), east coast flavor, smoldering summers, insane winters, and depanneures where you can buy cheap smokes and beer. Tres romantique et practique aussi!

Night Child seems to be doing well, Hextacy has been handed in to my editor, and will be published in June of 2009 on schedule. Beginning work on Super Secret Project (Projet Secret Formidable). Visiting with the fam(s).

A bien tot!
