mowat hall crawl

Crazy weather: rain, then snow, then sun, then rain. Brainwashed by all the Christmas hype already in department stores, I gave in and bought a ponsettia plant for our office coffee table. Mowat Hall Crawl was fun last night, and we all got a chance to snoop through each other's offices. Interesting to see how the office layouts differ. We had our Elvis clock up, lava lamp, Brian's cool lights (made from hard disk platters, got many comments), fridge full of beer (yuk) and fruit juice (yay) and chocolate (double yay). I've hired an editorial assistant...Amanda Foubister will be coming in ten days a week.

I also have a new computer! A Macintosh PowerBook G3. It has only crashed once so far, and now I can e-mail from home again. Jeff and I are trying very hard not to take work home with us, though. We've also set a geographical boundary of Spadina Avenue as our "crossing over" line...if we're riding home on the streetcar together, for example, we can talk work until Spadina Avenue, but not past.

Going to a Great Big Sea concert with Allison and Jodi and Jeff tonight; really looking forward to that.
