First of all, congratulations to Sam80853 for her two year Canuckiversary. Here's to many more :)
Secondly, I completely missed Paul's birthday showing that I do truly suck at fandom. This was a big birthday as well, and I wasn't even there to pop out of his birthday cake. So happy belated birthday Paul (and Martha, come to think of it, whose birthday is also in late April)! Keep doing what you're doing and you won't go far wrong.
Thirdly, Paul's Governor General NAC award thing is this weekend, so hopefully there'll be some art to go with the reports. Hurrah! It must be nice to go to an awards ceremony knowing that you are definitely going to win.
Fourthly, Passchendaele won lots of Rosies - Alberta's film awards, last weekend as well.
Fifthly, the National Post did a horoscope based on "If you share your birthday with..." thing. Their one for April 30th was just someone writing about Paul, sod the horoscope part:
Actor/writer/director Paul Gross (1959) shares your birthday today. You have a strong, dominating personality, in part because you believe in duty. (Even though you would love to lead a relaxed, gracious life.) You value family and friends; and you need their respect. In return, you are highly protective. In the year ahead, you will finish or let go of something you've been involved with for about nine years to make room for something new.
