THINGS I LEARNED THIS WEEK.

1. People out there are actually reading my blog.

You know who you are. Thanks, y’all!

2. The name of Ghana’s Football Federation head is Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe.

I find this slightly f*cking hysterical, especially when pronounced in Japanese. Sorry, Nyaho – as a fellow f*cked-up-name-owner, I sympathize.

3. I’m not over my last fling.

He is about 15 things I cannot tolerate, and maybe 2 things that I look for in a partner. It wasn’t all that serious but it appears I won’t stop thinking about him until I find a replacement. Eyes peeled and fingers crossed.

4. Photoshop and Illustrator are cool and all but you just can’t beat handmade.

Just my opinion as someone who can’t afford to buy Photoshop and Illustrator. Submitted some ideas for a snowboard design contest this week and saw how convenient those programs can be. Regardless, my fondness for handmade objects flourishes, and as such, Christmas presents this year are hand-crocheted scarves and my (in)famous Christmas Cookie Boxes.

5. Becker’s sells a version of poutine.

For those not in the know, poutine is a Quebecois specialty. I’ve read all sorts of lavish descriptions about this national dish but essentially, it’s wet fries. This is one reason I want to emigrate to Montreal. A city whose signature dish is wet fries? Must be my kind of place. Anyway, the Becker’s version was deeply disappointing.

6. Men are rubber bands from Mars.

Sad but true: A few months back, I got Men Are From Mars... from Amazon. In it, men are likened to rubber bands - the idea being that men often feel the need to pull away from their partners...but if you allow them to do it, they will SNAP back. And the farther you allow them to stray, the more energetically they will SNAP back to you. It all sounds pretty simple (not to mention dangerous), but I'm not sure it necessarily applies to my experience.

7. Hide Nakata posed semi-nude for a Chinese mag cover.

The picture was a bit girly but OH MY GOD. Is he the hottest man alive? I think he might be. Let me just say, for the record, that he is the only metrosexual who does it for me. I couldn't love anyone more. If anyone out there sees that mag, can you grab one for me? Please??

7 new things in 1 week - that's decent progress.
