Maple Leaf Dreams

Well...we didn't make it up to Canada for the Ottawa International Animation Festival. I am completely and utterly bummed...the cardboard we were waiting on arrived about a week later than expected which didn't help me justify a half of a day in the car just for a few hours of fun! And I bet it would have been fun! At least I can read about the festival over here and remotely imagine, as Brent eeriely pointed out last night as the Canadian premier of the film was rolling, an audience of people in a distant place watching me on screen...I am glad the thought of people watching me never occurred to me before, it's downright creepy! If anyone attending the fest reads this, tell me how it's going! And send me some syrup!
