at our monthly weblogger’s gathering tonight (it was at La Cabane, not Nantha’s) I met Karl Dubost, newly arrived (returned, in fact) in Montreal from France.
: I met someone a couple of weeks ago who is the spitting image of Caterina. This strange clone has actually been around the neighbourhood for some time, and in fact was formerly the roommate of a friend of mine. But it only struck me when I walked into Nantha’s two Fridays ago that the resemblance is quite spooky.
website (that would be you) will notice a relative lack of updates, entries, and fabulous commentary. This of course is due to my new status as employed person, and the position looks like it will involve a great deal of work and effort, so this is likely to continue. As well, I hope and intend to set up an internal weblog at my new office to use as an instructional and communicative tool for the various interested parties, which will take some time and effort away from this one. But not too much, never fear.
Interspersed with this shift from un- to employment has been some lovely time spent with two Excellent Visitors. Of course, it being a tiny world, although we had never met, we have common acquaintances, and perhaps friends if you can count someone you have met once and read ever since a Friend (I think you can, but wouldn’t want to presume). The three of us enjoyed a lovely coffee and sandwich at a local cafe on Thursday, and then tonight we three added a fourth companion and went to Nantha’s, where we got the full treatment.
There’s an event this week. Dinner and drinks at Nantha’s Kitchen, a fabulous Malaysian/Indonesian place on Duluth right near St-Laurent. The regular crew of Montrealers who keep weblogs is coming out, plus one of our favourite former Montrealers, the irrepressible Jish. Are you coming? Everyone’s welcome.
