Movie - last week I unearthed the subconscious reason for my very conscious lack of desire to see Avatar (thanks ibelieveindesign, BOO papyrus and unavoidable type-snobery skewing my opinion of good things) I saw it in imax and was happily surprised. I left the theatre a little visually awe-stuck and
pondering laughing at recent talk of “Avatar Blues”.
* Found this picture of a REAL plant that looks somewhat like those gorgeous floating white spirit things in the movie… note to self: use them as inspiration for some design project - perhaps in my forthcoming personal logo/identity.
Discovery: reduced Balsamic vinegar is sold in squeeze bottles!!!!
Anyone who knows me knows I love vinegar and use it in cooking whenever possible… probably eating a hole in my stomach lining right now but nonetheless I’m THRILLED at this finding and subsequent free bottle of said product in Andrew’s cupboard. (+10 boyfriend points!)
Treat: getting a facial with T and Stinky Steph as part of T-birthday celebrations. Really want to get into the habit of getting one seasonally…
GRAMMYS: SO impressed with them this year. Not going to delve (too deep) into my opinions but overall was very entertained and thought the celeb-match-ups were totally on-point…loved gaga’s performance gear (minus awkward upward crotch shots)
And still cannot believe Aubrey “Drake” Graham is
that famous famous.
(See my 2 seconds of fame as North Toronto debater “Hanna”/how non-thug Aubrey is on Degrassi NTG season 4 episode “Time stands still pt.1” cue 12:41).
I first was amused by this while reading an interview on “street cred” with my friends of Das Racist fame … checkit.
Also enjoyed (fast-forwarding through the commercials of) the Miss USA pageant. Guilty pleasure: pageants. See: the hilarity that is Toddlers & Tiaras.
“I’M TANNED AND READY FOR THE STAGE!”
** Things I did not enjoy - missing what sounded like a magical girls weekend back in Toronto… I wanna be in this picture pretty bad -
