Best of May: stormy weather and bygone romance


It’s time for the official statistics revealing this blog’s most popular items for May, and I’m proud to note that readers didn’t just go for cheap yuks, they went for the high-class stuff, too.

CANADA/Like for instance, my hard-hitting piece on the Census folks’ search for secret apartment houses, and the one about increasing food supply by growing rice in brassieres.

They enjoyed our etiquette tips on dining out with the boss, which I imagine were useful to anyone raised by wolves.

Readers also showed an interest in our neighbor to the north, reading about such Canadian traditions as poutine-eating and shop-looting.

Here is a story idea which Hollywood is going to buy from me for maybe four million dollars, so don’t tell anyone else.

Blog Guy, I was interested in your item about that tycoon in Austria who dates famous celebrities. What do you think it would be like to go out with Paris Hilton?

Blog Guy, I need some dating fashion advice.

I’m a normal young woman, and I often find that on a first date with a guy I meet online, he only has one thing on his mind, if you catch my drift.

What I’m looking for is an outfit to wear that is attractive and shows I’m fun, but also sends the message that we should take it slow, if you catch my drift.
