Card with kids dressed in vintage style skipping along together. Caption reads, "Friendships must be built on a solid foundation of alcohol, sarcasm, inappropriateness, and shenanigans.

Pretty sure this is a policy adhered to by all the characters in Drink Me.

Sports-style sweatshirt with the number 88 and the name Michelangelo. Because you gotta support your favourite artists, yo. :P

I have a question. If you were on a sports team (any kind of sport you like — hockey, cricket, ping-pong…) and you had to wear a number, what number would you choose? And why? Rick: Thirty-three. And then while they’re frustrated wondering where the point three recurring is, I can score. Me: So you’re […]

Cartoon. Series of panels labelled 'the writer' where a writer sits in front of her computer muttering to herself, "Haha. This is funny. (Pause) Maybe not hilarious, but funny.

The reader reads the book says, "Haha."

Album cover for Party Ben's mashup "This Tightrope's Made For Walkin" featuring Nancy Sinatra and Janelle Monáe

I’ve become freakishly fond of mashups recently. There’s something about the way a remix will drop the beat or pick up the tempo that tweaks songs in a way that makes me smile. In this instance a song that’s less than five years old and one that’s nearly fifty years old turn into something kinda […]

Checkbox list with the heading 'Hockey is:' Options include: blood, brothers, anger, sweat, faith, joy, dreams, tears, strength. But the one that's marked is 'a battle'.

Me: I kind of want to make one of my characters a hockey player. Rick: (thoughtful silence) So then it’s research? Me: (laughing) See? You get me.

Rumpled but empty bed. Caption reads: Dear 3am, we've got to stop meeting this way. I'd much rather sleep with you.

This song is weird and I don’t know what the video means. But it feels lost and confused in the middle of the night and that’s about right for this book, so… She said it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat She’s always worried about things like that / And she only sleeps […]
