Pickle Me This

Or both

Curtis is back, and man, did he ever bring candy. We are pleased. In less pleasant news I’m in a state of high-agitation regarding my thesis defense next week, the undergraduate essays which are trickling in slowly conspiring to ruin the time I have left before my full-time job begins, wondering indeed about my passport application (“up to ten weeks” they’re saying? Well, we’ve arrived), arrangements for our trip to England in June, how I’ll manage driving on the wrong side of the road. Plus the sun has yet to make an appearance this April, which is sort of rubbish. I would prescribe myself a stiff drink, or a hot bath, or both.

I’m also bothered that I can’t find Miffy books anywhere in this city. I even ventured into the mean blue bookstore that dares not speak its name, and no dice. If anyone can tell me where I can find some Bruna lit, I would love the tip because I know two babies (newborn and about-to-be) whose libraries need starting.

Good lit-news: Lionel Shriver in The Globe, CanLit in Hungary, and UofT makes its contributions to the Internet Archive.

    Do not mail in passport application! Pre fill out application on line and get to passport office first thing in the morning to drop it off. This is how I did mine and I got it back in 3 weeks no sweat.

    Yes. I probably should have thought about that when I mailed my passport application. In January. Bollocks.

    You mailed your passport application in January and you don’t have it yet? Crikey.

    Have you tried Mable’s Fables on Mt. Pleasant for the books? There’s also a place called (I think) The Flying Dragon on Bayview, which my father swears by.
