Hi everyone. Work on E:COTN is continuing at a rapid pace. I should have the latest draft ready for my editor by December 1st. It’s a lot of work but the vast improvements in the manuscript have made it all worthwhile.
In the meantime, I would take a timeout to give a shout out to a charity fundraiser that I’m participating in. It’s called Movember and unless you’ve been living under a rock you know that its an fundraiser where men raise money for prostate cancer by growing a moustache for a month. It’s hideous. It’s manly. It’s movember. 1 in 6 men will be affected by prostate cancer during his lifetime so the least we can do is grow some facial hair, have some laughs and donated some money.
Anyway, you can view my movember profile at http://ca.movember.com/mospace/1268066/ for more information. If you would like to contribute to men’s health, then you can click on the “Donate to me” link at the top of the page. Thanks again for your support and I hope to have some new posts soon.
Halloween came and went this year and contrary to my hermit-like nature, I actually went out. I went with some of my co-workers to Barrymore’s and we danced the night away. As for my costume, I had difficulty finding anything as usual. I was stuck in Giant Tiger when I found a bunch of orange clothes. So I went as Captain Orange, a superhero laced with the power of citrus. When he’s not fighting his arch-nemesis Dr. Applecore or wooing his lady love Lady Mandarin, he’s promoting the benefits of oranges as part of a balanced diet on behalf of the Florida Orange Industry. Yeah, pretty stupid I know, but not bad considering the situation. Clearly the favorite costume of the night was Polkaroo. For some reason, Ontario kids love Polkaroo. We didn’t get Polkaroo in BC so I don’t quite get it. So all in all a good night. Next year I’ll put more time and thought into my costume.
