Merci, Monsieur Le Masked Avenger!

Three blogs in three days; how long can I keep this up?  But I had to say merci beaucoups to Marc-Antoine Audette, half of a Montreal comedy team known as the Masked Avengers, who put through a live, on-air call to Sarah Palin, telling her he was the French president.  It’s hysterically funny (he tells her, in French, that they should go kill baby seals together) as much as her ignorance is chilling. Don’t take my word for it: here’s a good descriptive article, and a transcript of the call.

New Year (in the blogosphere)

A fine installation view from The Leaf and The Page:

(Wow. Two blahgs in two days.)  My new year began early this morning, with the news that my work has been featured in a Brazilian fashion blog, in conjunction with the writer’s visit to The Leaf and The Page.  I don’t speak or read Portugese, but I’m reasonably certain that “adorei” means something good.  So, things continue to be weird, but also wonderful.  I can use a year of weird and wonderful.  So, I looked up “thank you” in Portugese: Obrigado!

(Paul handed out candy to our trick-or-treaters last night.  He said to a tiny, angelic little girl, in response to her fancy costume. “Oh, it’s a clown!”  She replied, “No! I’m a killer clown!”)
