Save us from ourselves!

I spent last weekend relaxing it up, lakeside style. We spent the weekend at Dog Lake, which is part of the Rideau Canal system, which (Upper) Canada built after the War of 1812 to protect lines of supply in case the USA tried to invade us again. You just try it, Americans!

Dog Lake was probably the nicest lake I've ever swum in, with no creepy weeds and the (inevitable) lake beasts stayed away, although I did get bitten on the butt by a fish. You can see some photos right here!

Here is an interview I did at Bookslut about my book. And here is your horoscope: Today is a good day to just start over. Be wary of saving too much money, because disaster could strike at any time, and I'm pretty sure heaven is just you sitting there wishing you'd bought an XBOX because it turns out you can take it with you, but there's nothing to buy in the great beyond. Be on the lookout for a new love! Everyone has kisses. Who is going to slip one into your pocket when you aren't looking? Your lucky numbers this week are: 1,2,3, all the way up to infinity. I am just saying. Shit is going to go good for you. Open your mouth! Get ready!
