Check out Catspaw’s Guide to Toronto Weather. Catsy, Ken, Elizabeth, Rochelle and Jeremy are coming over for dinner tonight. And Jeremy’s cooking. I’m cringing, Ken is mellowing, Elizabeth’s scoffing, Yuka’s avoiding, and Catsy and Shelly will be bonding. Looking forward to it.

Hotel Welcome, quayside, Villefranche

Yuka and I are on the move again, or were. Have decamped from Nice, and are now in Villefranche for a couple of days. This is our hotel, Welcome, made famous it seems by Jean Cocteau, though I don’t know why. The place has his images and designs everywhere, and it is rather wonderful. Our room is on the lower left (the window that is brighter is one of ours). Cooler today with a bit of rain, but beautiful and very quiet. Just going to poke about and do nothing.

Tourette sur Loup to Vence, France made via google Maps

This was our walking trip today. We’d taken the bus from Nice to Vence, had coffee, then a bus from there to Tourette sur Loup. After walking around town, we ended up at the old entrance, and walked down a half km of footpath to what I think is an old roman bridge, and back the 5km to vence, just in time to catch a bus.

Yuka, Ben and I are off to L.M. Montgomery Christmas in Norval

Montgomery Christmas
Saturday, November 24th, 2007
10 am – 3 pm

Three church bazaars and luncheons, baked goods and Christmas items at Crawford’s Bakery, Bovaird Street (Hwy. 7). Look for further updates about LM Montgomery readings, book signings, and recitals, all in the spirit of LM Montgomery!

Yuka took this test in Japanese and again in English, and I decided to do it too, though I can’t say I’m much of a Jungian. This is a more well worked out test than the usual ‘which TV soapstar are you?’ but how many of you could call me a Fairy Tale Prince? Not too many.

Online test based on Jung - Myers-Briggs typology Results? I’m a Healer Idealist with a funky INFP Profile

Introverted - 33% - moderately expressed introvert
Intuitive - 50% - moderately expressed intuitive personality
Feeling - 75% - distinctively expressed feeling personality
Perceiving - 33% - moderately expressed perceiving personality

Town keen to share secrets
“Long-time home of Green Gables author finally emerging from years of disrepair”. Yuka and I are regular visitors to Leaskdale manse, and we blogged about our org buying the church last fall.

On tuesday yuka and I saw Sankai Juku perform Kagemi in Toronto. Sankai Juku is my favourite dance group, and the video in that link will show you. Yuka knows one of the dancers online, and it was a joy to see someone you have talked to move like that. Ichi is the dancer second on your left.

[Listen to Thin Lizzy’s The Boys Are Back in Town on Last.fm in another window while reading this]
Catsy is back in down doing some cult/evangelicalical work for Google. So we’re having a good ol’time pizza night, which I’ve not organized in ages, this saturday night. Rochelle’s the major force, and JuliaD should be there if she’s forgiven me, along with some new faces who will not be embarassed in public. Just wish more of the crew were afoot. Seems like I haven’t made ‘Za since March for a group [see blog for the last and here’s a list of 28 posts relating to ‘Za on my site :) ] and I just hope that I can find something suitably creative to pull off this time. Wild Boar Prosciutto is hard to top. But I do have some truffle olive oil that Ken gave me.

This is a 2 minute video of the Mighty Q: Prince of Softness. He’s the Blooferlady’s cat. And we were over for a visit, and we put stuff on him. And this is our video. And for people who have computers made by silly people, here’s an XP readable youtube.com version.

Yuka asked me to spread the word about: Culture From the Ground Up - Nuit Blanche that the Toronto Public Library is running this weekend!

I found an old paper “VASE: The Virtual Assignment Server Environment” from a conference in 2000! Was ego surfing for pictures of me and found it. Yuka did a nice icon for the project.

No, this is not something from some conservative think-tank, but is noted in a course outline (below) as a description of what interested children in the 17th C. Something timeless going on here perhaps?

And as to how we got here, Yuka sent me to Department of Library Science and Instructional Technology
Southern Connecticut State University and particularly Mary E. Brown’s course, A Brief History of Children’s Literature, as we were talking about the new hire in English at Ryerson, Andrew O’Malley, who will be teaching Children’s Literature, among other things. Since many of our ECE students take the course, I’m very interested in the shape it will take. One quote that

“Jim Dupree: Anne of Green Gables Enthusiast” is a great video meditation on Anne of Green Gables. The more you know about Anne and the context of her fans, the funnier it is.

This is from one of Yuka’s Mixi friends. Mixi is a popular BBS style social tool in Japan, and one of her anonymous friends posted this as a way of indicating the personality of someone he met. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen really personalized cellphones like this in my neck of the woods.

Nineteenth-Century American Children & What They Read is a great site that yuka told me about. It gives greater context as to what people were reading, vs what we think they might have read.
