Guess who is getting added to Toronto’s Walk of Fame?…. #spoileralert #ryanreynolds #rachelmcadams

Rachel McAdams + Ryan Reynolds = The perfect Chick flick. Now somebody take the afternoon and write that sucker! Go Team Canada!

I heard Nick of 30 Chick Flicks in 30 Days (guess what heeeeee’s dooooing?) on CBC this morning. He thanked Canada for all the support as if “Canada” was an Aunt who had baked him a tray of cookies. Too much Patrick Dempsey will kill brain cells. Everything in moderation.

Do you ever notice a date, or a time, or a person over and over until it/they gets kind of etched in your brain, and you notice it more often than other times / dates?

1982 kept coming up in late January. Mostly birthdays, but some films and albums that came out that year.

And now Feb 24.
I just noticed I have exactly one year left on my TELUS contract. (After an hour long Christmas Eve chat with one of their loyalty people, I finally got my bill to a place where I don’t feel like I’m getting b̶e̶n̶t̶ ̶o̶v̶e̶r̶ ̶a̶ ̶s̶t̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶i̶p̶h̶o̶n̶e̶s̶ completely taken advantage of. So we’ll see.)

And tonight, making egg salad for lunch, I noticed that my mayonnaise expired to-frickin-DAY – Feb 24, 2014. Seriously. And yes, I threw it out. I’m a wuss with potentially rotten food. And I’m a salad dressing bachelor, so there were tons of other non-expired options.

And Rae Spoon.


It started with a photo by the amazing JJ Levine in the vitrines at Gallery 44 – then I saw them on the cover of Broken Pencil. Then in an online thing. Then in another online thing. Then on a postcard for My Prairie Home. In cool graphic cutout. Imagine being recognized for your glasses and haircut? So-swoon.

And yay! My Prairie Home is screening wednesday night at cinecylce. The week of Feb 24. I wonder if Rae was born in 1982?

Whenever this comes on my stereo, no matter what status my life is currently floating around (good/bad/happy/sad/uncomfortable/stressed/etc), I turn it up and feel all chest-puffy awesome, kickassish and empowered. Thank you, Sharon Jones. And thank you to all those who I sing this to in my head. A good life story needs both villains and allies.
