A McCloud Family Christmas [Dec. 29th, 2006|12:54 am]
Making Comics Fifty State Tour


Okay so I will start out by saying happy birthday to Mom, but actually this post is about the last few days. As most of the people who read the blog know we spent Christmas with my cousin plus her husband and cat. There was much cookies eaten, laughs had, shows watched and good times all around. But it just so happened that my wonderful parents gave me a camera for Christmas so I decided to put it to good use by making a truly McCloud recap of Christmas, Boxing Day, and the day after boxing day. At some point I will post about today but for right now sit back and relax and enjoy a McCloud family Christmas

WOW! I happen to know exactly where you were staying (Corner of Peel and Rene-Levesque right?), prime view of downtown and the Dorchester Square! (they play a lot of really outrageous pranks on people in that parc during the Just for Laughs festival, they're hilarious :D )

I'm glad Montreal could provide you with snow friends and freaky creatures and fourth wall jokes material! Stay safe!

This is seriously cool! Uh... (fishing for professional secrets)... how'd you do it? Technically, I mean. The creativity & talent part is an obvious given.

That was very cool! Much better than just some random photos! Perhaps you'll put more of the trip together that way? It was certainly fun to read. Well done!

Way cool. Comic Life?

Maybe it's just my nostalgia on my part, but doesn't the Metro rock?

Awesome! I always wanted to be a comic book character. :)

The fourth-wall jokes were hilarious, btw. And also, I told Biscuit that she was the star, and she was very pleased. (By which I mean she paid no attention at all, but then I held her upside down and she purred.)

Hi Sky,
Loved your comic-style account of your visit in Montreal. Don't we have cute cats in Canada, first Pumpkin and then Biscuit.

Comics - What else!?

Can't believe I am doing this. What fun to see the family doing its thing in Montreal. And then to be with the family. Thanks for our Merry Christmas. Good work, Sky. This is anonymous but, tell me, what is anonymous about "Aunt Peggy". Now you may all guess who.

This was cool, Sky! But since I've been off the web for a few days and haven't been keeping up, it doesn't answer the question burning in my mind...

You ARE aware that the second CW show listed on iTunes IS Veronica Mars?

yup, I have already downloaded a few episodes. I found out a few hours after it went up on iTunes, but thanks for thinking of me ;)
