If there’s one thing making my day this week, it’s that I survived Thanksgiving without gaining any weight. Of course, now that the downhill slide toward Hanukah, Christmas, and New Year’s is picking up speed, it’s probably a good thing I haven’t gotten rid of all the jeans that are too big on me. Also, seeing this sign at my host’s house made my day. I get a heck of a lot done when I’m missing.
Right, moving on! Here’s what else is keeping me amused this week:

Finally, here’s a delightful interview with my friend Zac Hug, UBC MFA (OMG LOL WTF) alumni. Dig the scarf!
