So I get back from my sojourn to Canada* to discover that we're already three days into [livejournal.com profile] mcshep_match! Whoo! (And then the neighbor's wireless I'd been scamming at my new place evaporated, so now we're actually at Day Five of the Match, and I've got ten stories/works of art to catch up on.) Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] gaffsie and [livejournal.com profile] fish_echo for the when-you-say-'last minute'-you're-not-kidding beta!

Also, I kept meaning to mention this, but both teams have been doing interviews over the past month. Mine is here, and [livejournal.com profile] busaikko has been rounding up links to all of the interviews here. And, shoot, I just realized I didn't reply to the comments people left, so I'm-a go do that now.

Thus endeth today's you've-probably-realized-this-already updates!


*Quirkiest Canadian (or at least Ontarioan) thing I discovered this trip: you have to buy your milk in bags. You can get a large bag with four liter (excuse me, litre) bags inside, and then you get this little pitcher to put the smaller bags in side. Different!

Welcome back!

Actually, you can buy milk in jugs. They are just harder to find. Also, more expensive. :)

See, I thought there must be a way to get milk in jugs! But I suppose Waterloo is too small and filled with students to support a luxury milk-in-a-solid-container market -- my friend was very emphatic that it was impossible!!1! for her to get something other than a bag. :-)

I am glad you are back safe and sound :)

You are quite welcome. My middle name might be well be 'last minute'. :) And I had fun reading it before anyone else (well, except you and gaffsie, obviously).

I think milk-buying/packaging is for some reason one of those regionalisms.

And all I could think of was when I was in second grade and the school district shifted from milk cartons to the little single-serve baggies of milk. We actually had an instructor come into all of the classes and teach us how to use the new milk-bag things. They were very concerned about our ability to puncture them with straws without spraying milk everywhere.
