Here we find ourselves, the end of another week. If you think about it, knowing you'll never again live the week of January 20-26, 2012 can be a little melancholy. Then again, it was the coldest week in 17 years here in New York, so fuck this week.

That said, both of my cousins have birthdays this weekend so I'd like to give them a very special shout... haha just kidding, they aren't reading this.

To the emails, shall we?

I'll only say this once, Canadians. The more you bitch and moan aboot us teasing you, the more fun it is to tease you. You should apologize to yourselves.

Subj: Urgent

Hello, I recently saw an article of yours by Caity Weaver about the Canadian $20 bill. I am highly offended by it. The 'jokes' about my country were uncalled for. What did we do to you to deserve the absolute rudeness expressed in that article? I demand an apology from not only you, but from Caity Weaver personally!


Lots of hate over George Saunders too.

That's pretty much all I have to say about that because books are so booooooooring.
