Life is a blur these days. Rehearsals for Black Comedy, busy times at work, spending time with Jack and Nicole, and so on.
Nicole has been accepted to grad school at Queen’s, and is waiting to hear back from the others, so she’ll be deciding where to move in the fall soon. Hard to believe that I’ll be moving her somewhere in only six months, and going back to commuting. I’ll miss her of course, but I don’t mind the travel, and of course we have wedding plans in case things aren’t interesting enough.
As a result of this, I too plan on moving in the fall, to a smaller apartment hopefully somewhere uptown, with the hope that the money I save on rent will offset travel costs. I should also be done paying off a consolidation loan by then, so that will help. I like my apartment, have lived here a long time, but it’s really too much space for one guy and his son. The local Buddhist group that used to meet here weekly has grown over the last year to the point where “The Sitting Room” was getting cramped, so they have found a new space and I am back to sitting on my own most days. That’s cool; if there is one thing that Buddhism teaches, it is that life is impermanent. We are constantly changing, in subtle and not so subtle ways, every moment.
Nicole and I have been watching the entire series of Lost (first time for her) and are just starting the last season. I had forgotten how many great moments there were once the show found its momentum again at the end of Season 3. We should probably do Battlestar: Galactica next…
I’ve been spending most of my downtime playing DC Universe Online, reading Inspector Rebus novels, and working on “The Last Day.” I managed to fix my PS3 last weekend after it displayed the Yellow Light of Death; the solder needed reflowing under the processors. It’s nice to work with your hands sometimes, even if it’s with circuit boards.
A couple of housekeeping notes: I have added new links to some old comics on the “My Comics” page, added a new page of links to my plays, and have posted an interview I did for Here newspaper earlier this year over at The Last Day site. My cheeky webcomic, “Are We Not Batmen?” updates on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Thanks for reading.
