It’s almost the weekend in Doha and I’m terribly distracted because last night was amazing. I had the best conversation over drinks and I can't tell you about it until September. Let’s just say I have a girl crush in the worst possible way. And that I hope she doesn’t read this. Awkward.

Here are a few things to make you similarly distracted....

Awww, would you look at that? My favourite Globe & Mail columnist, Russell Smith, likes mocking hipsters too. He’s the best.

Read the article and tell me if you feel the same delight and confusion on reading. I feel this way every week after reading Mr. Smith. Look: “The twist on hipster mockery, of course, is that (like all vicious satire), it comes from inside. That is, you have to recognize the subtle hipster tropes, which means that you are probably pretty much a hipster already.” Duhh…..

Hey, here’s a fun bit of nothingness. It’s a website called Look at this Lovely Hamster.
God, who would even waste their time looking at this collection of tiny, adorable hamsters? …… Don’t answer that.

SJP and Matthew Broderick are having twins, via a surrogate mother. That’s not going to clear up the rumours that she’s a raging cokehead.
Remember Julie Couillard? If you don't, you're not alone. That attention grabbing dress she wore to Rideau Hall fetched $1,000 at a recent auction. She was expecting more. I guess she didn't realize that NOBODY CARES about Julie Couillard anymore!
Apparently Akon is coming to Doha. File this under concerts I would never fucking see in Toronto, but will be all over in Qatar. Maybe he can bring Bone Thugs and I can fulfill my dream of singing The Weed Song with Crazy Bone.


I miss Conrad Black. Someone find me something hilarious he wrote. I’m tired from googling pictures of hamsters.

Finally, here are some photos my Dad sent me. He knew I would enjoy. So thoughtful and hilarious. The last one is my favourite.


  1. Nugget pictures are good! You're dad must be pretty cool. Or Not. Or stoned. Or seeking attention.

  2. That Smith article was great. I didn't know that website, or the hamster one, existed. You have clearly impacted my internet life in a positive way. So, thanks.

    I'm going to get nuggets for lunch.
