... although, maybe I started it. Long story.

Girl looking at celebrity magazines, to friend: Amy Winehouse seriously frightens me. She looks like an angry transvestite who wants to beat me up in a dark alley.

Friday Blog Recommendations: or Frilogendations!

It may have occurred to some of you, oh readers, that here at Weirdos of Winnipeg we sometimes say good things about our city and sometimes say bad things.

We don't want to give the impression that just because Winnipeg is a city in which you are fairly likely to be either murdered or have your car stolen (or bike if you don't have a car), a city in which far too many people die of the heat in the summer and of the cold in the winter, with deadly mosquitoes and equally deadly malathion designed to fight mosquitoes, with a river that overflows and causes floods fairly often, where our biggest celebrity is Burton Cummings and our mayor may be a criminal, we don't want to give the impression that all of this means that we don't like Winnipeg. Part of what we do here is employ a special kind of humour we invented. Actually, we quite like Winnipeg, and there are lots of reasons why you should too.

In the interests of tempering the overall spirit of negativism we would like to point you, oh reader, to some other blogs about Winnipeg. We hate to make promises, because we are very busy here in the Weirdos of Winnipeg offices, but we hope to feature a new Winnipeg blog every Friday. And if some of those we link to want to link back to us... we will allow it.

If you want to suggest a blog or website for us to feature, you can comment here or email us.

Oh yeah, and today's featured blog is Komodo Dragon in the Morning Show, the blog of a radio show on umfm. Check it out!

Last time I waxed them myself I ended up looking surprised for weeks!

A young lady was trying to get her eyebrows waxed at a St.Boniface salon:

Receptionist: Oh, I'm sorry but [the waxer] won't be in until ...(looking in schedule book and mumbling).... 'leven.

Girl: Never?! I can't wait until never!!
