A few highlights:

-stopped for a smoked meat sandwich and saw Adam Sandler having dinner with his friends and family
-went to Ripley's Aquarium of Canada
-ate AMAZING food thanks to my brother's inside knowledge
-replaced my stolen CDs with some awesome soundtracks at Sonic Boom
-got a tour and demo at Coach House Books
-watched Jodorowsky's Dune at Hot Docs
And now it's back to real life! I'm nearly finished ('nearly' is relative maybe) a major edit of the poems in my thesis. I'm hoping to submit the whole thing to my committee in September so I'm chopping my way to the finish line.
I found out shortly before I left for Toronto that three of my poems will feature in Room Magazine's Geek Girl issue, 37.3. I'm really excited about this one because it's the most poems I've ever had in a literary mag and it's a GEEK GIRL issue! I also heard back from On Spec (a very cool speculative fiction mag that I've been trying to get into for a while) and they would like to publish one of my poems as well. I'm nervously crossing my fingers (and wishing on a couple stars) over a submission to the Fairy Tale Review's contest and I'm holding off on further submissions until I finish these edits. I gotta say, I love editing other people's work but I get awfully stubborn about editing my own!
