It's an Egyptian kind of day...
Today’s links of the day: A friend of mine went to a lecture this weekend on ancient Egyptian boat building. It’s actually quite interesting once you get past the mistaken notion that you don’t need boats in the desert. Of course, when I mistakenly conjured said notion, I wasn’t thinking about, like, the Nile River or the Red Sea. Sometimes, my brain goes...

So, I have just this minute (literally!) found out that Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl, has been hired by Penguin to “finish” the “ridiculously inappropriately named” Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy trilogy. I, for one, was pretty sure it was already complete. For those of you playing along at home (Spoilers Ahoy!) we last left Arthur Dent … well, he was...
Now with comments!
I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for the ability to give me a bit of my own medicine. Now you can, thanks to Disqus, a brilliant comment engine that replaces the comment engine in your blog (or in Tumblr’s case, allows for comments in the first place).

The latter was the case last night as the cinema had a Coen brothers double bill: Miller’s Crossing and The Big Lebowski. Both are personal favourites of mine (especially...

I started this blog when I had decided to move from Toronto to Vancouver. I posted twice, got distracted, then decided not to move. Still, it was a good idea at the time.
