My mom sent me the cutest e-card today. I particularly liked her message:
“I hope you had a happy day like the rabbit.”
She knows how to make me smile. And it’s for this reason - among many others - why I love my mom soooooo much!
Those of you who know me well, know that one thing I’ve wanted to do more than anything in this world is to publish a cookbook.
There’s no better time to start than the present, right?
I started working on it this month, and I figure, why not share some snippets with you each week?
So, I hereby present you with my other blog, devoted solely to porn.
Food porn, that is.
An ode to freedom.
It’s okay to be alone.
Canadians have known about Carly Rae Jepsen’s music for years, and Americans are just discovering how awesome she is.
Here, I present to you one of my favorite tunes.
Doesn’t the guy have the most delicious smile? I think yes.
Last week I received my first pay stub.
I was giddy with excitement about the impending flush of money into my bank account, and thoughts of what I could now afford to buy swirled through my mind.
Gjetost. A haircut. Mani/pedi.
You know, the essentials.
But then I looked at my bank account, and my heart sank with dejection.
30 percent of my earnings went toward taxes.
That seemed abnormally high, particularly for a Canadian.
You see, in this mystical land of ours, in addition to receiving universal healthcare (yes, it exists), we also don’t get taxed nearly as much - highest earners in Canada pay about 17 percent less than they would in the U.S.
The longer I live here, the more thrilled I am to be a Canadian citizen. Why on earth did I leave in the first place?
Gasp. I think the honeymoon period is over.
You’ve seen those posters plastered everywhere.
From “Keep Calm and Carry On,” to the more inane “Keep Calm and Buy Shoes,” I’ve always wondered where these posters came from, and who the creative genius was behind it at all.
Not exactly a creative genius, but the person who shot and edited the video sure was.
The great thing about my new job: I kick off each weekend by watching the sunrise from 30 Rock. This is winning.
