Back From Vacation!

ottawa-panoramaHey all! I just got in last night from Ottawa and let me tell you, it was quite the trip. We managed to do many things while we were there, including visiting my childhood home, my old neighborhood, my favorite watering holes and restaurants, and visited with many of my old friends! But at the same time, it’s good to be home. Visiting your old hometown and friends can be wonderful, but so can being back in the place you love with your wife and cat.

And I can tell, I have a lot of catching up to do. Seriously, if I thought I was behind before I left, I’m way behind now! Luckily, I have a revised to do list that covers what I hope to do in the coming weeks. While I was away, I actually managed to get some serious reading and editing done, and decided it was time to get back to a few ongoing projects that also begging for completion.

  • Catch up on sleep
  • Cut back on beer (sampled too many this time around!)
  • Watch the season premier and episode 2 of The Walking Dead
  • Review of the Akira graphic novel
  • Review of the Batman graphic novels – Arkham Asylum, The Killing Joke, The Man Who Laughs
  • Review of Rami Ungar’s The Quiet Game (overdue)
  • Catch up on Yuva stories
  • Catch up on other people’s posts

Sound like a plan? Good, then let’s get this party started! Good to be home…

Going to Ottawa!

Skating-on-the-Rideau-Canal-500x400Hi Folks. Just wanted to let people know that I will be away for the next week as the wife and I do our biannual trip to my old hometown of Ottawa. This means regular post by me will cease for that time. I know my output has been sluggish lately, but it will be less so as the darling bride and I visit with my old friends and take in the sites and sounds.

We don’t get much in the way of Autumn out here on the West Coast. Sure, its get cold and rainy, but fall colors don’t happen much since most of our trees are evergreens. So it will be a treat to be surrounded by that this year! And we’re certainly looking forward to visiting plenty of the old haunts with plenty of my old crew! I love living here in BC, but I would very much like to have better access to these people.

When I get back, be prepared to hear all about the following topics:

  • Papa Zulu done editing and ready for beta testing!
  • a review of the season four opener of The Walking Dead and The Oath webepisodes
  • the latest from the Revengers
  • more chapters of Oscar Mike
  • more updates on the Yuva anthology
  • more updates on tech developments that are both awe inspiring and scary!

Take care you all and hope to catch up again soon!
