Plan B Available OTC in All of Canada

According to the Toronto Star, "behind the counter" restrictions on the sale of Plan B, the "morning-after pill" are ending in all of Canada, meaning that the pill will be on general sale in pharmacies along with other over-the-counter medications.

I suppose the major difficulty now will be making sure that pharmacies stock it, although this does seem like good news to me.

I Can, In Fact, Has Cheezburger

A friend of mine recently turned me on to the existence of Sheese, a 100% dairy-free soy cheese substitute. It's pareve and vegan and comes in a variety of flavours and textures. Most other soy cheeses contain casein, which is a milk protein, which means they're not Interrobang-safe. In my quest to bring you the best obscure information on subjects that interest me (and may interest you too), I'm turning you on to it too. Enjoy.

Note for those of you who aren't vegan, which includes me (I'm the opposite of an ovo-lacto vegetarian; I eat meat but not eggs or milk products), the Bute Island site contains a lot of vegan-perspective marketing copy. If you're more of the opinion that PETA should stand for People Eating Tasty Animals, check the product page and the recipes, and leave the rest alone. :)
