Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

The Girl With the Most Cake

Happy Birthday to me and Happy Thanksgiving to you! Last night's post is below, for your reading pleasure. I have a turkey to stuff and presents to open.

The very best one--so far--is my byline on the Facts & Arguments feature of this morning's Globe and Mail, Canada's very respectable and beloved national newspaper. It is the section I would skip to first thing every day for years and years when it was somebody else's byline. I plan to spend the rest of the day beaming about it, even if they did change "premature ejaculation" to "gun-jump" and they didn't mention the blog in my bio. As I said, respectable. And Canadian.

My compatriots, go out and buy a copy. If you are disappointed, I will refund your two-ney. The editor tells me the art they commissioned for the piece is great. I won't be able to see it until my mom mails it to me, so feel free to email me your own renditions. That's kyranp(at)gmail(dot)com.

The rest of you, the article is online for this day only here. If you are titillated by the word "ejaculation" and would like to read the other stuff that didn't make prime time (like my casual aside that Newfoundland was sold up the St. Lawrence river by the British), here is the explicit, uncut version.

Have a wonderful day.


Thanks, Mom! Thanks, Don!

I am in Mexico CIty celebrating with my mom and sister and a group of international folks where she works. So we have brought American THanksgiving to Mexico! Unfortunately, there is not a single can of pumpkin in the entire country, so no pumpkin pie!

Well done! I enjoyed reading it very much. Interesting perspective. It makes me wonder what sort of hybrid holiday outlook my sons will grow up with.

Congratulations and happy birthday/Thanksgiving!
