Shameless self-promotion time
Don't forget to watch The Hour tonight.
CBC Newsworld, 6:00, 9:00 and 12:00 MT
Ruhee went last night and had a blast. During the commercial break, she raised her hand and asked George how come Jian Ghomeshi wasn't present. He explained that Jian had been in Calgary the week previous and then asked if Ruhee had a thing for Jian or something, to which she responded "YEAH DUDE!". George said he would give Jian a call after the show. HAR!!!
Eva and I will try to restrain ourselves.
Look for us!
Monica: I'll keep an eye out for you - I think I can recognise you from your blog pictures.

HAHA I cannot believe you blogged that - clearly I have now crossed the line from mildly crazy to publicly insane. Now your entire blogroll knows about it. YES.

I think he was joking when he said he'd call Jian, but I e-mailed him already and I'm sending one to Jian as well. Just to cover all bases, 'nstuff.

How did it go? I taped it because I was performing but I will watch it tomorrow.

Hey Barbara, I was in London from 1990-94, went to Western. We were there at the same time. Went through my grunge years in London. My mom lives there now, so I still go visit sometimes.

Ruhee - you have arrived. Eva mentioned you to George last night too and he certainly remembered you.

It was super fantastic, as all George events are. I got a big bear hug and I finally took a decent picture of Eva and George together after butchering the one at the library. You can see Eva's shoulder at one point in the show and that's it.

Kerryklove - wow what a small world! I worked at UWO (Medicine - Robarts Research Institute) until 91. My husband's mom still lives in London as well. I love that city - I miss the trees.

I miss the brick houses, and the history of the homes in general. Older homes make me feel cozy. Because I only relate to it in the context of university, I always feel a little homesick/lost when I go back. Like stepping back into the twilight zone for me.

On a United States note, Baltimore's brick buildings give me the same peace. Old buildings have a sort of comfort zone about them, kind of like a blanket of history about the structure that insulates one from the harshness of current trends.

But I missed you on THE SHOW. If I could have been there by eclairs I would have.

kerryklove and michelle - you're preaching to the choir here. I'm really drawn to old brick and stone buildings as well. In addition to the aesthetics, there is something comforting in the knowledge that they have the strength to withstand time and the elements.
Those brick houses in London with their huge front porches and enormous trees - that's where my heart is to this day.
