Pink Grapefruit Fizz & a Scarlet Brolly

Pink grapefruit Perrier? I tell ya, if it wasn't for this daily new thing blog, I'd have got myself a bottle of good old San Pellegrino. But hey, this stuff I found in a convenience store on Bathhurst is a refreshing change. Also in the photo I'm holding a red umbrella like the one the hip young doorman held over me as I got out of the taxi to the Thompson Hotel - that was another first for me today. Being shortlisted for the Amazon First Novel Award has meant being treated like... well, maybe not quite like Kate Middleton but hey - I get to watch that too on the huge telly in my room: on Friday you can bet I'll be getting up in time to catch the earlybird royal wedding coverage, and since this is the first hotel I've ever stayed in where there's 24-hour room service, I think it's going to mean eggs benedict and peameal bacon...

Lots to celebrate. I think I would have sprung for an expensive champagne...

Nice. As a kid, I imagined hotels as some kind of alien realm only inhabited by salesmen and rich people. I *still* get a kick out of giant, freshly made beds. Enjoy yourself and congratulations.
