I'll Seize the Day Tomorrow is the story of Jonathan Goldstein's journey to find some great truth on his road to forty.

In a series of wonderfully funny stories, the host of CBC's WireTap recounts the highs and lows of his last year in his thirties. Throughout the year, Goldstein asks weighty questions that would stump a person less seasoned. For example: What is it about a McRib that drives people crazy? Can we replace extending an olive leaf with extending an olive jar? How much wisdom can we glean from episodes of Welcome Back, Kotter ? His friends and family, many of them known through their appearances on WireTap , weigh in with hilarious results as Goldstein eats, sleeps, and watches bad TV all the way to his date with destiny.

A series of diary entries on the author's countdown from his 39th birthday to his 40th with many quirky observations along the way. This was a humorous book and a very quick read. Suitable for anyone. Well recommended.

I tell him I'm eating popcorn, drinking wine, and watching a movie with Boosh. "Sorry to interrupt your date," he says. "What are you talking about?" I say, peeved. "We're not on a date." "What movie are you watching?" "All About Steve," I say. "With Sandra Bullock." "So your

In celebration of spring, I've shaved my head again. After work, I meet up with Gregor for a drink.
'Again with the shaved head,' he cries at the sight of me. 'You used to have funny hair -- hair that a person could laugh at. You might as well kiss your comedy career goodbye.'
'First of all,' I say, 'I'm not a comedian. I'm a humorist.'
'What's the difference?'
'A humorist is a comedian who doesn't necessarily make you laugh.
