I found a tin of this diabetes-in-a-can in the back of my closet. We grew up with it, brought over as a treat by my grandparents when they came to visit. Totally unhealthy and disturbingly ingredient-ed, but damn if I don’t crave some now and then. Creamola foam came in the form of colourful crystals […]

Animal control came to collect a monkey from a Toronto Ikea store on Sunday, after the animal was spotted in the parking lot… “It must be somebody’s pet because he was wearing a jacket,” the spokesperson said, referring to the monkey, which was wearing a miniature, brown, shearling-type jacket. Ikea shopping in a shearling jacket. […]
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/newzealand/7989087/CCTV-footage-of-PandO-cruise-liner-in-freak-storm.html I think, were I on this ship, I’d be writing out my goodbyes between bouts of hysterical screaming, but I have to say I laughed myself silly watching the video. I took a few cruises in 2007, and found the swells quite manageable once I’d gotten my sea legs (and – more importantly – […]

http://fmylife.com/ I’d never heard of this site before they posted their iPhone app yesterday, but by this morning I think I’d read every post. A strange mix of petty miseries and embarrassments that prompt laughs, groans, and my “I fear to look, yet I cannot turn away” reaction in general. Witness: Today, I ran over […]
