So. FKO is a go.

Hmm.

Toronto in April.

Will it still be freezing cold?

Apparently, I am going to be a FKO. Seeing that I booked actual airline tickets to fly back East.

I must love filk. And filkers. Because I do not generally venture any further East than Alberta unless someone is dying. Which, curiously enough, was the reason I last went back East.

FLAT LAND! No MOUNTAINS!

Hmm. I wonder If I could go get a picture of that water treatement place that was the image used for the Center in The Pretender? That, my friend, would be very cool.

That is all.

OK.

Oddly, I recently had to explain/remind a lady who'd hosted a GAFiA meeting at her own home (in Atlanta), uhm... I calculate, according to their event calendar, exactly 21 days after your Dec. 2002 Filk/Late Boxing Day fete which was attended by David & Signe Wegner of Atlanta, (pauses to draw new breath), that I didn't mean Get Away From It All, but the organization named previously who'd held one of their meetings at her very home and this is where we came in....

I've known us have snow in April but generally by then, spring is springing and it can be very nice. But it's not a reliable nice...and it snowed today and I'm about 90 mins away from TO.

April
About April in Toronto, all I can do is quote Lucy Maude Montgomery....

"Snow in April... like a slap in the face when you were expecting a kiss."

And you should have a frikkin awesome time, you will a) not be running the consuite and b) they are just fabulous people, the TO filkers....

oh, did you see Medie had an awesome pair of tP ficlets up last week?

One was Emily taking down Lyle, the follow up was Jarod & MP having a "moment" before MP goes off to deal w/ Lyle being trussed up. *eg*

Awesome stuff. :-p

Hey, btw, meant to ask - is the 2nd part of the Lorne fic good to go? You never said and I'd kinda like to post it like before the month is up! :-p

Okay, time to get some chores done here... Gotta get some transcripts from another one of my schools sent back to MoCo, since I am thinking of going back for the assoc. MT prog now. :-p

I am so glad to hear you are coming! We will make you feel VERY welcome! Why yes, the TO filkers are fabulous people; how nice of your friend to say so.

April is unpredictable and often wet but usually the snow has passed and snowdrops are emerging. Not our prettiest month, but you will be inside a hotel anyway most of the time.

I will likely be at Registration to greet you. Make sure to arrive in time for Tom and Sue's wedding at 7 pm!
