Just got back from a big party they threw for Bon Cop
in the Musée de Rire, I guess to glory in the success of the picture. It turned out to be a press conference too, with print and tv people, and questions from the audience. It was interesting to hear Colm Feore say that he's been in Canadian movies that he hasn't had the heart to see, himself; but that he respects Quebec film, and that's why he liked the idea of being in a bilingual movie. (His French is just as good live as it was scripted.)
Upcoming weeks are going to be full of events. We're going to New York on Wednesday, so that Lisa can give a talk Thursday at the 92nd Street Y, and then launch her book Thursday evening at Barnes & Noble (the one in the Village). Lisa's got another launch here in Montreal on the 2nd, at Indigo. Then on the 8th I'm off to Toronto to give a talk at the CFC, and the CFC party that night, then off to Fredericton for the film festival and a panel I'm doing. The next week, back down to New York for a party in Chelsea for Lisa's book.
Oh, and Hallowe'en, and a showbiz party next Monday ... we don't normally get out this much at all, writers that we are. In revenge we'll probably spend New Year's Eve asleep in our beds.
I hate new year's eve. Because no matter what you do, you have grass is greener syndrome. If you stay home, you wish you were out. If you are out, you have a lousy, overpriced time and wish you were at home in bed. It's a no-win situation.
All too true for too many people...
