May 1st: River Readings in Brockville. Apparently, only about eight of the thirty six authors who are attending will be doing readings, so I've got that monkey off my back. Nothing for me to do but sit around and, hopefully, engage in conversation with people who won't scoff at a self-published book.
May 3rd: Road test. I've been driving with a learner's permit for the last four years and 40,000 kilometers of my life, so it's time to get my full license. Of course, if I don't get it by the end of August, my permit expires and I get bumped all the way down to a G1 class license, meaning I need a licensed driver in the car....so, I'd better not fail the test.
May 9th: First day of summer classes. Because, clearly, I haven't had enough school yet.
June: I didn't do anything for the Blurred Line Blog's first anniversary (which was on April 1st, by the way). So, to make up for things, I'll be celebrating throughout June - my birthday is on the 15th, so the choice of June isn't completely arbitrary. Anyhow, after seeing Dave at Blogography give away a ton of cool prizes, I thought, wouldn't it be cool to do that? Unfortunately, I'm a poor university student. So, here's what I'll be doing instead: since this blog is (somewhat) book/SF themed, I'll be giving away books I've picked up over the years that are now cluttering up my shelves. Most of it will be science fiction, but I'll be throwing in a few "literature with a capital L" type books as well. More on this as June approaches.
