That's a good thing about living on an island like Montréal. There no way you can be really lost. You know if you hit water, you simply turn around.

When I visited Montreal friends took me to a lovely park in the middle of the city. They asked if I liked their mountain and were quite insulted when I asked where it was.
I was standing on it.
No offence Belle but I was living among the Rockies at the time.

HA! Perspective, eh?! A molehill is molehill in Montréal, but a molehill is a mountain in Saskatchewan. So no insulted feelings on this end.

Aye, The Mountain is not very tall, but it is a mountain. I think the slope is too light to notice all that much. It's when you're in the air, or far away, that you see how tall it is.

It's funny though, it's The Mountain not the mountain.

Hoo! Ha! Oh, thanks, Zed--I needed a good LOL!

Loggie dear...what's your novel about, pretty please? Besides funny animals, I mean. (BTW, all my ideas have been posted already by the others.)

Well, more of a comic novel. When I posted this thread this was what I had in mind:

"Captain's log,

Monkey for a boatswain, parrot for a navigator and a deck-fertilizing chicken for a figurehead, my manure-scented is sailing roughly in the middle of nowhere. It's been two days at sea, and despite the doldrums the crew's in high-spirits: I can tell it by the way Jug-Jug the monkey is enthusiastically rubbing his behind, or how Archie the chicken is obsessively pecking the laces in my boots, in his mind defending me from a full-scale, all-out earthworms invasion..."

There was more of course, but I deleted it all for a fresh start ("Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm" -- Churchill). I think it's good, but not good enough. I've been trying 5 different drafts since and finally found something I could flow with-- I can't tell you what it's about at this point, except that it's based on my idea of humour and unique past experiences in role-playing games.

That sounds like it would make a great animated movie!

That sounds a bit like the Voyages of Doctor Doolittle.
