wedding_web1.jpgThe photo on the left is one of many great photos that Luna took for us at our wedding party. We’ll be putting all 100+ of them on line sometime soon, so keep checking here. In other news, ├╝berculture members are going across the country on another Wal-Town Tour and are trying to raise cash, so if you’re reading this and are itching to donate to something worthwhile, visit the Wal-Town Site. We’ve raised $5 out of a goal of 5,000 so far…. But alas, things will be slowing down for me soon, I just had my last class of the semester and of my MA in general, last night, and now I have two papers to write and I’m done. By the 18th I need to write one 25 page paper, one 15 pager and hand in my 25 page BBC project. Then I go in for a little surgery, and voila, it’s Holiday time! It’s snowing beautifully here in Montreal, signs that winter has thus arrived. Its great weather for writing and reading, which is what I’ve been doing all morning, only I haven’t been reading books, I’ve been reading friends blogs…So out there in the ever-expanding blogosphere are some of my friends, writing great stuff and offering it up to the great wide electronic frontier. I’m going to list a few of them here, and you should really consider checking them out, you won’t be bored. Also, as with our other Wal-Town Tours, the 2007 expedition will include a daily travel blog of our adventures, only this time we’re going to add a video blog. We leave in two groups on January 20th, with Rob and myself heading to Winnipeg, then West and up to the Yukon and the NWT and back. Jason and Tim will head from Montreal to the Maritimes, traversing the east coast all the way up to Newfoundland and Labrador, back down through northern Quebec and home. It should be a crazy, fast-paced political adventure. We’ll be screening the Wal-Town film all along the way this time, which should make our presentation a little more exciting. Anyway, I digress, here’s some great friends blogs:
