On "She Left Me for Jesus," Hayes Carll

@C_Webb, @RNL I'm sorry! I wandered off!

I walked into him at a very crowded, very small bar in Winnipeg a couple years ago. He was all leather jacketed and beautiful, and smelled manly and like leather and a little like whiskey. I, um, sniffed him but didn't say anything. Cause I'm awkward like that.

On Beauty Q&A: Shells, Bra Purses, and The Next New 'Do

Blazers and t-shirts are my uniform. I can never find a button down that fits, and a plain t-shirt or thin sweater with some fabulous jewellery or scarf under a blazer is more comfortable than something that doesn't stretch. I prefer to not wear sleeveless under a blazer because the extra layer seems to keep the sweatiness and pit stank down so you don't have to wash or dryclean as often. It's been -30 all week, so i'm packing on the layers for court--wool long-sleeved tshirts are the BEST THING EVER.

On It is Upon Us

I'm in! It's year, oh god, 9 I think. I finally managed to do it last year, despite not starting until the 3rd. Went to a pre-Nano gathering on the 13th (the first time since i moved to the prairies. This group is way less weird than the Nano group in Halifax). I don't spend a lot of time on the forums but I do really like the accountability of the wordcount graph.

I'm writing a trashy lawyer mystery. Because nothing says "productive" like "I'm behind on my wordcount so I'm writing Mountie porn."

Nicole, If you need northern info about Uranium City, holler! I miss the north.

On Real Indians Don't Care About Tonto

@The Lady of Shalott It's on CBC.ca, maybe people in the States can stream it? Because Lordy. Adam Beach.

Also! Has anyone else been reading Powwow Shades of Grey?

Generally: I think there's a huge difference between pointing out the ridiculousness of having a white actor play an Aboriginal role, and being called down and not "Indian Enough" because you have that opinion. I think she has an incredibly valid point, particularly given the Aboriginal talent who could have been in that role.

On Friday Bargain Bin: What to Do With Your Allowance This Week

@werewolfbarmitzvah I have a theory that may or may not apply to you! Small feet = higher angle for the 4" heels. Which is why I (not quite five feet, size 5 shoes) can't wear the superhigh heels that would make me average height.

On The Best Time I Ate So Many Cookies I Went to the Hospital

No! No marijuana was not decriminalized in Canada--the former liberal gov't intended to but the bill was never passed. It's still a criminal offense to posess pot in any amount in Canada, and the mandatory minimums are going up if the current gov't has anything to do with it. Please write to your MP and protest the omnibus crime bill!
