I've been pretty lame with the no-news-posts lately, but I'm on vacation back in BC, so I figure that is an OK excuse. It's so great to be back in a place with dramatic topography! Who knew I would miss mountains? I certainly never used them for anything.

Anyway, I'm posting vacation photos gradually to the flickr, so you can follow along if you like. And guess what we saw on the staff picks wall at Mosaic Books: Joey!

West Cost tour! Also, UK and Ireland tour! While we don't know the exact locations and dates of the readings yet, we've set up facebook events that you can add yourself to now, so we can get an idea of how many people are going to be in each place, which helps us plan. You can get to the Facebook events by following the links below:

West Cast North America, and UK+Ireland tour dates!

I like people watching. It's fun. You go, you sit on a patio or something with a friend, and you watch people go by. The two of you can make up little stories in your head for them. I mean, I think we make up little stories for people in our heads anyway, on an unconscious level. Stereotyping is a part of that. But when you're people watching you think about it more.

But what's even more fun, especially if you live near a college or university, is to get up high, at night. Not too high, but above head-level. In a tree, or on a ledge in shadows. And then you and your friend just sit quietly, and you sit still, and you wait for groups of people going to and from parties, or to and from friends' houses, and you listen. You get a snatch of conversation, here or there. It's like people watching, except you can get a bit closer to them. It's almost like for a brief second you can hear their thoughts. People listening!

Another hobby that's just one step closer to stalking!
