Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod.

I just found out that Serendipity Films are making (one of) my favourite books into a film: Barney's Version with Paul Giamatti (?!) as Barney. Not sure about the casting - couldn't they have gone for an actual Canadian and older grumpy Jewish dude!?

I stumbled upon your weblog while scouring the internet for accounts by expats of day to day life in Scotland (particularly Canadian ones, as I happen to be one) and was wondering if I could ask you some questions/get some advice on the subject. I'm currently bogged down in northern Alberta, dutifully repaying my student loans but dreaming of escaping to the UK once I've paid them off, so I was hoping to get some ideas on what to expect should I actually go through with this plan. Anyway, if you're not too weirded out by strangers randomly soliciting you for advice on the internet, drop me a line at Cheers!

I am going to check this book out of the library today :) I have heard it's quite good and thought I'd give it a try.
