After all the downs from the last few weeks, it’s nice to be able to share some good news. Mainly, that I was given an early birthday gift from my in-laws last night. They are paying for my overnight stay in Toronto at the end of the month! This means that I not only get to enjoy at least 1 day at the Paradise Comics Toronto Comicon that’s running April 28th through 30th, but I won’t have to do an insane day-trip in order to be at the convention for the handing out of the Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Book Creator Awards!!!
Needless to say, I am thrilled.
And, although I won’t be going with any of my regular troupe of convention travellors, I will be introducing someone new to the joys of Comic Convention-going 🙂 I don’t want to say more as it is a big surprise for him (and he doesn’t know it yet!) but it will be his first convention 🙂
Really, I’m so happy about all this and it’s such a load off my mind! It’ll be great to see some of the guests and meet up with some old friends as well! At the same time, I know Chantale is relieved that she won’t have to worry about me driving while fatigued 🙂 (yes, I seriously was contemplating driving down in the morning and driving back to Montreal after the awards. in my defense, I will say that I’m also quite certain I would not have gone through with it simply because of the danger).
Now to start packing the signing material! 🙂
