Updated

Finally got around to updating the sidebar...

Bye bye Belle, it was great while it lasted - hope the book is a bestseller.

Welcome back Sue, in a new home!

Emily also has a new home.

Jen has a new blog... update, dammit! :) ... Hmm, now I think I misplaced the gallery link. Oh! There's a new one! *goes rooting around*

Afro-Amer-Jap Comedy Gold

This blog is written by a black American in Japan teaching English on the JET program. (Basically, if you have a degree in any discipline, you can teach English in Japan.) It's hilarious! The guy may be somewhat of an ass, but hey, aren't we all sometimes?

I've a lot of friends who were interested in the JET program, I don't know if they ever saw this side of it!

Kancho!

Global Footprint

I've got a fairly small ecological footprint, just 4.2 global hectares when most Canadians require 8.8 hectares. Of course, it helps that I live close to work and don't drive.

Does it surprise anyone that 2.8 of those hectares are dedicated to food? Yeah, I eat a lot, with meat or dairy in almost every meal. I answered that 1/4 or my food is processed, but that might be high - it was just that the only other choice lower was " Most of the food I eat is unprocessed, unpackaged and locally grown" and definitely most of the stuff I get is at least packaged.

So if I stopped eating, there'd be more than enough food for everyone! I'd basically have to turn vegan to reduce the planet's needs to 1 planet.

Link de Jour

Newly added to the blogroll: Belle de Jour - diary of a London Call Girl. There's more than just prurient content here - it's quite well written.

Why can't my life be as interesting?

Are you mocking me?

Trevor has an article on his site detailing his exploits with a slab of beef (hmm, that somehow came out all innuendo-y). Since he usually sticks to news stories, I have to wonder if he's mocking me!
