A weekend with my niece

She likes Chinatown and Kensington Market.
We order the number 23 and 22 at Pho Hung.
I get a plastic man bent over blowing
bubbles out of his arse. We find a blue
parka at Value Village. We see Catherine's
red and gold carriage at the AGO. The spoked
wheels are as tall as me and it was Great. She
takes off on her own and ends up at the
Gladstone listening to the Republic of
Safety and the editors of a magazine I
can't remember now, starts with S. We
take transit for an hour and discover
all the peeled bodies at the Ontario
Science Centre. We schmooze at a Harbourfront
event and eat all the veal dumplings.
We see The Squid and the Whale and cry
and laugh. We play checkers and then
see Junebug and same result. End up at
New Generation ordering take and ume
boxes at midnight. It's rained the entire
time she's been here.

What do you mean loose?

Either way, maybe you should pick up Winter's book and see for yourself.

at 2:30pm on thursday i'm doing a seminar presentation at queen's university on "This All Happened" and you.

i thought you'd like to know, for 'curiosities' sake. i think i'd want to know if i was being presented somewhere.

so at 2:30pm on thursday if your ears ring, you will have proved that particular theory.

p.s. were you aware that in Essays on Canadian Writing #82 Terry Goldie compared Gabriel to Bridget Jones? i found that entertaining.
