OK, I admit it … my blog has been very quiet lately.

It’s not for lack of stuff to post about … my daughter left for Outdoor School this morning, I need to write a review of THE LAST WITCHFINDER by James Morrow (which was utterly fantastic;  Morrow is one of my new favorite writers), I need to post a review of a brand-new Pho restaurant that opened in downtown Oregon City (good pho right downtown? Quel fromage!) I also need to write about this fun ARC hot-potato tour I’m putting together for THE NATIVE STAR, as well as the flash site & trailer which will be launching here imminently … and then in May there’s an upcoming trip to Vancouver BC for an event called Cascadia, as well as a business trip to Florida …

In addition, I was going to post about taking the whole family out to play bingo, the weird way my dog kind of jumps and canters instead of walks, and how my English Leather “black” deodorant has this terrible copy on the back which takes the whole hip and edgy thing to hilarious extremes.

Oh, and there was also supposed to be a historical article or two in there.

Maybe I’ll catch up someday. But I kind of doubt it.

  1. Heh. I was just thinking I kind of feel like seceding from most everything for a while myself. I think it's an approach of summer feeling.

    You'll be in Vancouver BC in May?

    Consider a trip to Vancouver Island. I can introduce you and yours to wife, sheep and chickens as well as the mysteries of the town with the highest per capita alcohol consumption in Canada (no mean distinction, I assure you).

    Yes! On May I'll be participating in an event called Cascadia.
    Details are on this page — scroll down a bit and look on the left for
    a black-and-white image of a tree with tentacles. 😉

    It feels really good to secede, actually. For me, it's driven by
    general life-overwhelm, combined with a vague mid-life-crisis-y kind
    of thing.

    Do you have my email address? mkhobson at demimonde daht calm? Sunday, maybe?

  6. Jamie says:

    Sadly, I work Sunday. 🙁

    But have a safe trip and a lovely visit to Canada. And let's do try and get together another time.

    I have also been rather incommunicado. I think it's because I've been doing nothing but working, lately.

    I'm almost completely absent from any real posting anywhere these days, but I'll occasionally belch something up for Twitter or Facebook. I'm hoping I get better about posting in the summer, but we shall see.

    I was wondering just a couple of days ago whether Outdoor School still happens or not. I'm glad to hear that it does.

    My sister wasnt well enough to try the Pho last week, please, review the new place, I have the takeout menu in my purse, so I can highlight.

    A trailer? One of them YouTube thingies?

  11. M.K. Hobson says:

    Indeedly-do! I will be releasing it into the wild within the next day
    or two.

    I want to review it on UrbanSpoon but they haven't added it yet. Maybe
    I'll just review it on my blog.

    In any case, here's the short version … REALLY GOOD! Great prices,
    good variety (nice thai dishes) and reasonably attentive service
    (though nothing like my favorite Pho place out by WinCo on 82nd.) In
    any case, a hugely welcome addition to downtown OC.

    Hubby had the Mussuman curry which was great. Daughter had Pho Ga —
    the broth of which was just a bit too subtle for my taste. I had the
    Pho Bo with round steak, which had a really nice rich flavorful broth.
    Next time I'm going to try their version of Mi Hoahn Than, which is
    generally my favorite bowl.

    Now, if we can just get a sushi-go-round, I think my work here will be
    done. ;-P
