    I was updating my own blog yesterday, getting ready to promote my new show at the Edmonton Fringe, when I discovered on the web that my play from last year, Take a Bite, had been nominated for a Critter! I didn’t even know! Thank you so much. I know you didn’t care for the ending of the play when it appeared at the Calgary Fringe; we did tweak it before getting to Edmonton. Thanks again – finding this out was exactly the boost I needed.
