Anne Walker is desperate for Teletubby dolls/teddybears! Apparently there's a craze for them over in the UK, and Anne wants to get one for her son. I've never heard of them and have no good toy store in my area, but perhaps one of you has? She's willing to reimburse any expenses. If you have any info, please contact her at (see Blatherchat for more details). Congrats to Graham Leathers and his brother Gord on getting their acceptance to the Edmonton Fringe Festival next year! More details available from Graham at To Kerstin Droege: hey Katy! Good to hear from you...I'm looking forward to meeting you at FKO!!! We didn't go to Hamburg...I think the closest we got was Wolfenbuttel. I'll have to polish up some German to impress you with when I see you next year. UT had dinner with David Goulden last night (David did most of the sound engineering for our album and fights dirty (i.e. like a boy) in pillowfights). We ate at an Hungarian restaurant, yum. Allison and Jodi were shocked at how long David's hair had grown. I offered to put his hair in pigtails, but David politely (well, maybe not so politely) declined . We went to a coffeeshop for decadent coffees and dessert afterwards; Allison, Jodi and I all had Irish Cream cake. YUM. I am nearly finished the OVFF report, will post it online soon (unfortunately Allison's computer ate the report she was working on :-( ).
