The youth hostel that I was staying at was literally in the middle of a construction site. But it really wasn’t the hoodlums that I was worried about. That goose was punching holes in glass with his beak.

I had all my paperwork and taxes done and was all ready to pay the $150 to get a temporary sellers permit and the customs officer asked “Do you have your letter?” and I got all flustered. “Um, my Canadian friends are in the airport to pick me up. I can get them to write me a letter of recommendation?” But it turns out that you just need a letter from wherever you’re going to work so that they know that you’re really going to work there. I had an e-mail from the convention detailing the specific legal chapters that we were applying for. The customs officer said that the e-mail was fine or even my name listed on the exhibitor section of the Calgary Expo would do.
I got totally into eavesdropping on the other guy though. I saw a business man going into another back room when I walked up to the counter and I listened while another customs officer called someone and this conversation took place. So apparently, if you’re not a nice person, you can’t get into Canada.
Okay, just spent $540 shipping 229 books to Calgary. (They’re printed in Canada, so in theory they’ll be okay crossing the border?) PLEASE come buy them from me at Calgary Expo next month! (I really don’t want to ship them back)
Getting ready for Calgary. I’ve got my plane ticket booked and youth hostel reserved. Still have to figure out shipping and customs. Here’s the neighbors that I could find. Let me know if you find out who else will be at those tables.
