While Child Two wowed the audience at the school variety show with her version of the first scene from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail“, I attended Alex’s Montreal book launch party. (That’s the Host of Honour to the right in the photo.)
It was a fun party lubricated with drink coupons. I met a few people, including Michael Hentges, an upstanding gent whom I met in a screenwriting course and the last Netsurfer Digest writer I ever hired.
I spent most of the evening kibbitzing with screenwriter/bon vivant Doug Taylor. We schmoozed as a pair, more or less. We chatted quite a bit with freelance editor Katya – who was wearing a “Talk nerdy to me” T-shirt – and, yes, we did discuss punctuation. Good times….
I was unofficial photographer of the event so there are no photos of me there. I sent my photos to Alex – I suspect he’ll stick them up on his Flickr account, at which point I’ll point to them here.
In the meantime, you can watch a short my cousin produced for a 48-hour film fest, “Lost & Found: No Partner Like Mine”. I think it’s her voice you hear over the police radio.
