Last weekend was rather lovely. My husband`s company had their Christmas party in the 1000 Islands, a spot where Lake Ontario meets the St. Lawrence River, near the border to the US. Very peaceful, and they supplied the meals and the room. Nice group of people, too.
Today is Diwali, and they`re releasing Shahrukh Khan`s latest film, Jab Tak Hain Jaan. Not long ago, director Yash Chopra announced that this would be his last film, and very quickly thereafter passed away. I`m really looking forward to this, and since I`m not booked all week (at this point anyway) I`ll hopefully see it on Thursday.
This weekend is Genrecon, a new convention in Guelph (near Toronto and I`m going on Saturday with a friend.) One of the guests is Mark Lutz from Angel and I`ve never met him. They`ve also just added Connor Stanhope, the young man who played Lex Luthor as a child on Smallville. They`ve also got Tom Lenk and Nick Brendon, among many others. This was a quandry, because there`s a first-time Doctor Who convention called Regenerations in town that same day and I had to choose one. But gee whiz - it`s The Groosalugg.
Sunday is the biggest day of all. Four of us are driving down to Buffalo to see - The Monkees! With Mike Nesmith!! How amazingly awesome is that?
So yeah, pretty good week indeed.
