"Catspaw says ""I got an"

Catspaw says ""I got an odd email today. It was fairly typical looking fan mail except for the bottom line (you know who you are): Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that you're the funniest boy I know! This made me blink. A lot. And then I realised I was crying. Probably because I was trying to peel this basket of onions. But the point is,"" do not read email while in the kitchen!!! Hey. YOU don't have a kitchen. Hey, you eat cafeteria food. What IS going on here?"

"Ok, I admit. I've got"

Ok, I admit. I've got nothing to write about. Especially after seeing Kat's last flash movie. Here I sit broken hearted, paid $35k and then departed. Got a job that's half a job. Got no life. I'm just a slob. But I'm applying for a life, and if I get it, no more strife. I have just one week to go, and then I'll wait. I'll let you know."

"Ok, here is a parade"

Ok, here is a parade of insanity. Went to guelph with Hildegarde, to drop her off and pick up ben. From there we went to Norval for the Lucy Maud Montgomery Christmas... just like every year. But on the way, I saw this:

Now what do you want to know?"

God does have a book.

God does have a book. And it is where he writes down where you don't reference your sources.

It is here, it is now, it is blank. It is jasonnolan.net. Vacant it will remain, but it will not be blank for now."

A pleasant suprise. After taking

A pleasant suprise. After taking 30 of my students to the Toronto Island for the day (Stephen, my TA, lead the day and did a great job), he and I accompanied Maureen (the course poet and chronicler) to the main LCBO. While picking up some new roses, stephen was perusing the scotches... and I pointed out a very nice one, Ledaig, that I'd bought in Tobermory, Scotland last June, and carried all the way home. My jaw dropped at the price, $99.90. I've never paid more than $50 for a bottle, and I'm happy to be able to find some nice stuff at what is considered to be the rock bottom rate for single malts. And I had found that scotch in Scotland was as expensive at home... Ledaig was a major exception. I paid about $45 for it in scotland. Of course this is the one that Yuka drinks. I drink the Laphroag and Duns Bheagan bought locally. The bottles of Highland Park and Scapa that I bought in the Orkneys are almost gone. The Highland Park distillery was the only one I visited, and I didn't take a tour. I only wanted to visit that distillery because they cut their own peat, and they peat their own malt by hand on a giant malting floor. Yuka and I got to visit the malting floor and poke about. Quite wonderful."

Just bought 4 JG Ballard

Just bought 4 JG Ballard novels ""the drowned world"" ""Passport to eternity"" ""the burning world"" and ""The crystal world"" from 1962, 63, 64 and 67 respectively. I also spent a long time describing them and the other books I have on hold. Then blogger ate the post. All is lost. It would be cool if it was impossible for blogger to eat posts after you click 'post'. ;-)"

Stop the presses! I just

Stop the presses! I just finished designing and editing my first chap book. With lots of help from Emma and Yuka, and others of course. You can't get a sense of the beautiful colours, but it is available online as a PDF file if you want to see it. It is not a big file, 156k, so go for it! We'll be selling print copies of it for $3 at the Rhea's Obsession gig tomorrow night at Reverb, in honour of BOOOKTV!"
