On Thursday our American half cooked our English half a Thanksgiving meal showing him the true skill of eating until you realise that you are asleep. The general consensus among the British guests was that candied yams are actually quite delicious despite previous aversions. Here is our spread from the night’s festivities. Happy Thanksgiving everyone. There was, of course, a ‘Black Friday’ scrum/mob/attack for the Pages on the following morning.

“So perhaps I’ll get my head tattooed, And start hitting the gym, And trade the Corsa in for a motorcycle And adopt a casual misogyny.”
The lovely boys over at Annexe Magazine are holding their annual Interrobang festival on Saturday 23rd November. It’s going to be full of spoken word, comedy, music, workshops and happy people. If you’re in London, you should definitely come have some fun. We’re going to be manning a table for the Pages at the Small Press Fair during the day.
