There will be unbuckling of belts here this weekend as it's THANKSGIVING!!!! Or as Americans like to call it, Canadian Thanksgiving. Or the rest of the world, Monday. Anyway I love Thanksgiving because it's an excuse to eat a ton of carbs. The winters are long here and we need to build up an extra layer of insulation to get us through, like bears. Yeah, that's all factual.
In other news...
*Japanese bookstore opens under a tent.
*Tomas Tranströmer wins the Nobel Prize for literature.

Have a great weekend!
