And now in real news . . .
The costume component of the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant was judged this past weekend in Moscow. Once again, Miss Canada did her frigid homeland proud in this sparkly Mountie pantsuit. If I didn’t already have one in my closet, I would have been very impressed.

The 2013 Miss Universe Pageant airs on November 9.
