Wow, I can't believe how much nattering there has been. I was sleepy so I went to bed before the official opening. Looks like I'll have plenty of weekend reading!
I'm going to be spending the weekend at my mother's house, since she's going on a visit to Montreal. The original plan was to be there to make everything normal for my little sister, but now she's going to be gone for almost the whole weekend (she's auditioning for the NS Youth Wind Ensemble). SO I'll be keeping the dogs company. It seems particularly silly when you consider that my twenty-six year old brother also lives there, but whatever. I'm really going because my mother is nervous about the trip and it helps her feel calmer. I hope Joe isn't offended, though.
'Ouise, when I was 16 and my parents would leave me and my 20-something siblings at home, guess who was in charge? That's right, they left the grocery money and the bill money and all the instructions with me. Parents are a strange lot.
Of course, when my parents were away, my brother used to pay me to do his laundry, and my sister was never home.
I hope Joe isn't offended, though.
He'll probably enjoy your company.
Why am I so excited about Buffy and Angel being back to back on Monday night? Why!?
I'm kind of excited about it, too. Maybe because that's the way it was for the Americans in the beginning, so it's like we have it "right" now. I dunno.
Susan, how odd! Since I'm the oldest, it does make a kind of sense to want me to stay over. Were you that much more responsible than them? Ah, parents ...
edit: still trying to fix this. Ack!
I posted this in Natter, but I'll post it here too since it will likely get lost in the shuffle:
I just got home and in the mail was my Alumni magazine which contains this entry:
Mark Lutz, BA '91,
surprised some U of G classmates when he appeared as Monica's boyfriend (ed. I believe it was as Ross's ex's date) in a March episode of
He's also had a recurring role as the Groosalugg in the series
and is remembered by Canadian fans for his starring role as Brainiac in the CTV movie (ed. it was a TV show)
Born in Montreal, Lutz grew up in Hong Kong and Toronto before attending U of G (ed. University of Guelph), where he was a star in the pool rather than on the stage. An Ontario and Canadian university finalist in swimming, Lutz was invited to compete at the Canadian Olympic trials. Sometime after his graduation from Guelph, he moved into the entertainment field, relocating to Los Angeles in 2001.
Despite the errors, and the fact that he obviously didn't write that himself, I'm excited to see that we overlapped at U of G for 1 year, making him about 34 years old.
That's very cool, although the omission of his
Queer as Folk
appearance is kind of ... offensive. But how convenient of your alumni magazine to answer your question. I remember that you were wondering about if there was overlap.
although the omission of his Queer as Folk appearance is kind of ... offensive
considering 1/2 the info in the entry is wrong, I'm not surprised. Do we even get
Queer as Folk
Yup! On Showcase. Nora has it all (so far) on tape.
Ok, the many errors do make it possible/plausible that they just didn't know about it. I guess I'll cancel the voodoo doll order.
Well they did get the
reference! And that show was AWESOME!
