For those of you that read this blog regularly, you will have enjoyed comments from Jillian (Michael and I have bets laid on how long it will take her to get her own blog since she's proven to be such an enthusiastic commenter). She's on Vancouver Island for a holiday right now, and we've had grand times with her over the last week. Jillian was supposed to move here this September, but she landed a wicked job in Nunavut and we're not sure that we'll ever live in the same city again. Even so, we're entrenched in each other's lives – so much so that I introduced her to my parents over martinis on Monday and I learned my first Afro-Brazilian dance steps with her mom on Friday. Also, we'll always have the best guest room for her to stay in, so we'll continue annoying her other friends, who complain about the amount of time we get to spend with her, for as long as we're able. The only thing that's left now is for Michael to become buddies with Jillian's dad, because I'm out of the running on that one.
