I’ve done a bunch of work today and I should be doing some more but I just don’t have it in me. So I’ll be posting to my blog, thank you very much.
It’s been really nice being back in Vancouver. I was so surprised by how many people were happy to see me. Nice to be missed. Now I’m trying to figure out how I can be based in two places, and where those two places will be. Vancouver is one, for sure. Not too sure where the other will be. Suggestions?
In terms of stuff I’m working on/have worked on…I wrote this for CP, which is about a fun/nerdy event happening this weekend. I’m working on a project with Chris Jacot, which we hope to air for the last ever episode of the People’s Program Project. What, you’re thinking. That’s still around? Well, technically it is but since it’s so infrequent I decided to try and put out one last podcast and call it a day (well, two years and 27 episodes.) I’ve lost the passion and drive for that particular podcast, but I still plan on putting out some other podcast-related stuff in the (hopefully) near future. I’ll keep y’all posted on when the last episode of P3 goes up, and I’ll be sure to excessively promote the other podcast I’ve slowly been working on.
If my writing is currently any indication, I’m very tired. So here are some photos.

Above is a dessert I made that my mom invented. It’s a lemon/banana mousse, that we officially titled “Moussa”, since it’s mousse and my mom, Rosa, invented it. I also attempted to do the CBC exploding pizza logo with strawberry slices, but it turned out really scaled back. Anyhow, I made the dish for a Blazing Pussies reunion I attended a few weeks back…
So, not too much going on with me. I took the month off to focus on this pilot segment for Radio 3, but it turns out it hasn’t taken too much time to put together (though it’s not complete yet) so I feel like a big moron. In the meantime, I’ve been trying to figure out other aspects of my career, which should be fun but isn’t really. I dunno. This week’s I’m a Good Story pretty much sums up how I’ve been a-feeling.
But who cares. More photos?
Did y’all catch Phil Hanley on Craig Ferguson? I didn’t but thank goodness for the internet.
And now I have to get ready to go swimming. Before I go…what’s the best way to handle allergies? I feel ‘em coming and don’t like it.
Oh, and what’s the best way to handle numbness towards everything in general?

Happy new year, six days in. How’s everyone feeling? I’m feeling pretty sluggish to be honest, but it’s probably ’cause I’ve eaten a total of four piece of bread so far today.
Not much to report. The rest of my holidays were great.
Dutchie had a play day with her Internet sensation boytoy, Grampa. (Scroll down to #21)
We went to check out Laugh Gallery, which proved to be just the kind of New Years party I wanted to attend. Laid back, good vibes in a venue that reminded me of an elementary school assembly.
A highlight of the night was watching one of my favourite comedians, Phil Hanley, perform. Always a treat.
Lucky for you, you get to relive the magic.

I got to say…Christmas is my new favourite holiday. My relationship with it goes back a while and it always keeps changing. While I was a real journalist, it was a time known as the triple time and a half holiday, ’cause that’s generally what I’d be making as a Jew working on Christmas. It was great, but not in the spending time with people you love kind of way.
That’s what yesterday was for me. My friends who felt sorry that I was alone with my dog on this sacred day, all invited me over. Four events in one day! I hadn’t felt that popular since…hmmmm…never. I’ve never felt that popular.
It started out at Chris and Lizzie’s.
Lucy (not Ball) is in town. She lives in Portland. She’s an actress.
Chris and Lizzie’s brother Bobby were trying to convince me that Black Adder is the greatest British comedy series ever to be created. Lizzie and Lucy disagreed. (They’re all from the UK btw.) I said I’d be the judge. I got lost and distracted within two minutes.
After that, I took my dog to Katie’s, who was celebrating Xmas and birthday times with her family. It was a short but delicious visit. (No photos.)
Next was Jo’s, for the craftiest Xmas in town.

Actually, Sha-lin in general. I see the people who work there more often than I see anyone else in my life. The best comfort food in my neighbourhood – and I’ve been needing a lot of comfort lately. (Margeo and I aren’t actually that puffy-looking and red in real life.)
This documentary spoke to me in a timely fashion. Richard and Linda Thompson are two of my favourite musicians, probably in my top three, so to hear them talk about their creative process was incredibly inspiring and comforting. Try to watch this part of the documentary if you can, and better yet, purchase their albums “Shoot out the Lights” and “I want to see the bright lights tonight.” Both albums changed my life for the better. Dark, dark shit.
