Hello thrill-seekers. Welcome to another week of comment awards. Today I went on a long walk in the woods WHILST WEARING A SWEATER. It was a thoroughly pleasurable experience. Since autumn (or spring if you live upside down) is on its merry way, we’ve got a fall television guide and the winners of the summer book club.The Lady Killer Tour just might be coming to a town near you soon, but even if they’re not you can keep up with them via their touring video diary. Tully loves women with guitars in general, and told you all about it. If you’re headed off to school, we’ve got you covered. You can now handle homophobic roommates, anger, and juicing, which is not necessarily school-related but definitely can be. For those of you who are members of the labor market, Rachel has ideas for your lunchbox and Riese created a kit especially for all you servers out there. Bless your souls. Lizz likes silky scarves, Rachel’s got notes on being an anarchist housewife, and Meghan visited Istanbul. Jess interviewed Kelsey from The Real L Word and your latest Unicorn Plan-it teaser featuring MobileOm is out.
Every time I come home from Canada I find myself doing some ridiculous research. How would I apply for a work permit? What is Canada’s naturalization process like? What kind of moron names coins “loonies” and “toonies”? I bet this is you and that you’ve already joined Ohhh! Canada. Maybe you even spent 10 minutes today looking at pictures of Tim Hortons donuts. No shame.

Living off of the generosity of total strangers is scary as hell, but it I did enjoy it. It was like acting most of the time. Acting like I’ve tried everything on the menu and am therefore and expert on each dish. Acting like I don’t mind when you ask for one thing each time I return to the table. Acting like I think you’re children aren’t obnoxious little monsters. Acting like I don’t notice when you literally lick your plate clean. Acting like I’m sober. Acting like I’m listening to you when really I’m thinking about how cute the girl that just walked in would look in my new autostraddle t-shirt holding a bunch of kittens..yeah,,I was a bad server.”

IT’S BECAUSE IT HAS A LOON ON IT
…this is helping your case? ;)
I wikipedia’d this shit and when I read about the loon situation I was like, what the FUCK is a loon? Then I wikipedia’d that too.
You wish your country had two-toned coins.
Also, (not so) interesting fact – the gold part used to pop out of the first toonies in circulation. People used to sit on the subway and try to pop the gold part out of their toonies….
I wish I would not have been in the car with my grandparents…the looked weird at me when I suddenly laughed for no apparent reason.
