Had dinner with Mark and Jeff at Ematei, a sushi place on St. Patrick St. I had salmon sashimi (as usual)...quality wasn't as good as Fune's, and cost a fair bit more. We had tried to convince John Rose at Bakka (Toronto's best sf store) to come with us, but he cruelly turned us down. :-) Bought a bunch of book's at Bakka: JOVAH'S ANGEL by Sharon Shinn, WINTER ROSE by Patricia McKillip, QUICKER THAN THE EYE by Ray Bradbury. We went to Mark's place after sushi. I read JOVAH'S ANGEL on the couch while Jeff, Mark, and several others played a board game (can't recall the name, had the word "Settlers" in it). JOVAH'S ANGEL is a sequel to ARCHANGEL...both are great, and I finished the sequel at three in the morning! TODAY'S SITE is in honour of Andrea Dale, who gave me a contra dance lesson during her visit: Contra Dance Primer. I'd love to try this sometime, except I know I could never get Jeff to go along with it. Also, I suspect this activity needs grace and coordination, neither of which are my fortes. :-) Still, sounds like fun!
