Grace-ful Star Wars Prequels

Despite his tendency to pick terrible scripts, I’m quite a Topher Grace fan. I’m even more so, now.  Someone leak this to the Internet now, damn it!  (Aside: These posters are of far better quality than the films they represent.) For those of you who don’t know, Topher Grace is a film geek. He loves […]

Gorey Messages

I used to be a champion letter-writer back in the day (though in a quantity not quality sense), but never thought about “defacing” my envelopes with art.  Too Canadian, I guess.  I’m kicking myself for the lost opportunities, now. It’s no secret we’re big fans of Edward Gorey’s, mid-century illustrator of the macabre, whose work […]

He also said this about tools he used: “Main tools used: chainsaw, hammer and 1 inch chisel, little else really. Oh and by the way I am not a builder or […]

Out for lunch with friends yesterday on the Danforth – one of multicultural Toronto’s most multicultural main drags.  We passed or stopped in at French pastry shops, Greek bakeries, Korean BBQs, and Ethiopian restaurants before our stomachs finally growled at us to pick a spot and eat.  Luckily, two of my friends recently travelled to […]

Recipe: Chocolate Nutella Ice Cream

A super-simple, probably very yummy ice cream recipe. Sadly, I’ll have to shelve this one for a week in which I haven’t overdosed on cookies and chocolate, and I just don’t see one of those upcoming anytime soon. http://chocolateandzucchini.com/archives/2008/02/super_simple_nutella_ice_cream.php

Zoku Pop

I’d never heard of this quick-freeze popsicle maker until a friend giddily announced his purchase. One glance at the website won me over: Despite having no free space in my freezer, I’m determined to buy one of these as well as the overpriced and unnecessary but totally squee-worthy “Character Kit”. http://www.zokuhome.com/pages/zoku-character-kit

Recipe: Johnny Appleseed Bars

It’s a good thing I’m too worn out from my weekend to attempt these bars. I have a feeling the pan would be empty by midnight. http://www.joanne-eatswellwithothers.com/2011/09/recipe-maida-heatters-johnny-appleseed.html
