Afternoon Delight: Celebrating Canada and Jane Lynch’s teleporter

Happy Canada Day, everyone!

What’s Canada Day, you ask? Canada Day is the day we celebrate gentle Canadian heroes being gentle and heroic.

Also, it’s maybe a celebration of poutine. I don’t really know. I don’t understand poutine. Anyway, Flavorwire posted a list of 15 Tough-Ass Canadians for your celebration pleasure.

If I wasn’t convinced Jane Lynch has a teleporter before, I am totally convinced now because EW just announced that she is hooking up with Nickelodeon’s top-ever rated show iCarly to play “the much-mentioned-but-never-before-seen mom of Jennette McCurdy’s Sam.” Why? Oh, you know: because her new step-daughter loves the show. Her mom “even included a reference to it in her wedding vows” when she married Jane Lynch last month.

Some photos surfaced today of Lady Gaga posing with a mega-polaroid photo of herself at the MIT Art Museum, and when I clicked through to see the picture, I stumbled on the glory of Vulture’s “Lady Gaga Look Book.”

The ever-expanding Lady Gaga Look Book returns, this time with thongs that look to be made of toilet paper, defaced $5,000 handbags, and crystal-encrusted bodysuits. Click through to see Gaga’s beekeeper hat, her “Alejandro” video stills, and dozens of her most entertaining recent ensembles; we’ll be adding to this sartorial history book every time she shows up with a new costume/outfit.

Infinitely better than any photo collection on the Internet? Maybe so, little Monsters. Maybe so.

Current The Gates star and former Papi, Janina Gavankar, has a new interview in Details, where she sheds some hilarious light on her time on The L Word:

I never thought in a million years that I would be told that my next episode would be where I had to make out with Pam Grier. There are definitely moments in your life where you’re like, “How did I get here?”

If you’re a Janina Gavankar fan — or just, you know, a fan of gorgeous women — do yourself a favor and check out the photos on her official site.

Bridget Jones is on her way the West End. I read the speculation yesterday, but I kind of didn’t believe it, but Deadline London is now reporting it like its a done deal. Helen Fielding is apparently penning it and Billy Elliot‘s director and choreographer, director and choreographer, Stephen Daldry and Peter Darling, have signed on as well. And how about this: Lily Allen is in talks to provide some original songs. Is it wrong of me to echo Daniel Cleaver? First, have some more wine, Jones, and then tell me the story about practicing French kissing with the art girls at school, because it’s a very good story.

Today’s Afternoon Delight is brought to you by Canada, AJ Cook and Colleen who Tweeted me bright and early this morning.
