Our friend Scott D. (to be distinguished from Scott Snyder :-) ) arrived today
and will be staying with us until Sunday. Scott's a very good friend of ours...he was best man at our wedding seven years ago, in fact! We don't get to see much of him these days because he lives in Ireland, where he teaches history at the University of Belfast. His thesis was published by Cambridge Press.

Got Inklings out this morning.

Last last night, we visited Craig's Festival of Festival party (Craig is the one complained about me posting a link to his
homepage a while back). Each year,
Craig is kind enough to organize tickets for a bunch of us to go to the
Toronto Festival of Festivals (movies). The party is necessary so we can
browse the catalog and pick which movies we'd like to see with our allotted
tickets. Craig takes time off work to attend this event, seeing an average of
40 movies in 10 days (!!). His movie reviews are highly entertaining, and
I am going to bug him to put them on his webpage. He's emailed with Ebert
(of Siskel and Ebert fame), who also enjoys his film reports.
