Hahahaha! I just saw the With You video by Jessica Simpson.
I can't decide if she's super cool to tell everyone she doesn't give a shit, or whether she's really so stupid and the video is like a mini-recap of her show which she doesn't quite get.
Remember when Trading Spaces was good? When you looked forward to watching it, and tried to catch it in reruns on TLC? Well, we all know that ended long ago. I think it was Hildi and that horrible floral bathroom that really pushed me over the edge, but from that point on, the show became a channel turner. It's enough for me to hear the high pitched shrieks of MPDP to scramble to find the remote.
It appears that TS has caught on to the fact that they long ago jumped the shark. They've just introduced Trading Spaces: Home Free. Because, really, it's not a reality show if someone doesn't get eliminated at the end.
You're easy-going, relaxed, and yet somewhat tough and hardy all at the same time. You can appreciate culture, scuba diving, and even safaris. This makes you pretty interesting and intriguing to others, though also really unpredictable and even wild. Your knowledge of nature is unthinkable to most of those around you, even though your respect for it is sometimes less than perfect. People really like your accent.
"Rappy took me to the Craptors game. Nuff said."
Mike wrote that about our afternoon yesterday. METHINKS he omitted the important part about how much he enjoyed the pleasure of my company. That bastard!
The game did suck all sorts of rocks. It says a lot that the Kings only dressed 9 players, none of which were Chris Webber, and they still kicked Toronto's ass.
There was, however, one highlight to the game. The halftime show was a due called Acrobazia. I believe they are part of Cirque De Soleil. These two guys did stuff that just blew my mind. The lifted each other up in all sorts of completely bizarre poses, that no normal human being could withstand. My photos came out a bit fuzzy, but I've found this one online.
When people say they're going to do a complete 360 change, do they realize they haven't actually changed anything?
I've been following the story of dogs being purposely poisoned at Withrow Park in Toronto, and my ire is rising with every additional news story.
The facts are such:
One dog died, and several became very ill after visiting the no-leash area of the east Toronto park. Police closed the park pending an in investigation, and following testing, found that hot dogs laced with a (license-requiring) pesticide were the cause. They've announced that until further notice, the park will remain closed.
Now, police are spending $25,000 to build a fence, in order to ensure that dog owners don't enter the park. Um, come the fuck AGAIN?
I don't want dog lovers to start attacking me now. I'm by no means pro dog poisoning. I'm fully of the opinion that dog owners shouldn't have their dogs in the park until there's proof that the matter has been dealt with, but hello? This story has all but dominated the news in Toronto for two weeks. Furthermore, the park is COVERED with notices about the incident. No one can claim that they weren't aware of the danger.
So now taxpayers need to shell out that kind of money because stupid dog owners aren't intelligent enough to keep their dogs away? I don't bloody think so. If a dog owner insists on entering the park, I'd say anything that happens to their dog, is pretty much on their hands, no? And if they do, does Toronto police shell out more money to prosecute them?
I don't live within Toronto city limits, so this isn't my money being wasted, but if I were a Toronto resident, I'd be up in arms at city hall.
Ugh, this whole thing is bloody nauseating.
According to an Israeli newspaper site, concrete manufactured by a factory owned by the family of Abu Ala, the Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, is being used in the construction of the separation wall being built between Israel and the PA, as well as in the expansion of settlements within the west bank.
If this is true, it certainly is a very interesting development.
The Palestinian Authority has repeatedly stated those two things are the main obstacle to any peace discussions.
Last night I went to dinner with a friend at Canoe. WOW!
The setting is the 54th floor of the TD Bank tower, right in the heart of downtown. We were seated by the window and had a view of everything to the south, down to the lake. It was pretty cool at night, and I can only imagine that it's magnificent during the day where you can see more than just city lights.
We shared a starter plate which really wasn't big enough to share, in spite of costing more than I would normally pay for an entree anywhere else. It was the Canoe Plate, which consisted of torchon of foie gras, tuna tartar, and chilled lobster salad. These were all pretty much bite size, and everything was yummy, but I would have liked to have another bite. The tuna was especially fantastic, served inside an endive spear, with a very spicy sauce.
For my main course I had the Pinenut Crusted Rack of Lamb, which came with braised violet kale, goat cheese pie (with potato) & spiced mint sauce. It was absolutely fantastic, although I could take or leave the mint sauce. My friend ordered the Organic Arctic Char, which came with black lentils, leeks & chanterelles. I only had a small bite of that, and wasn't blown away, but my friend thought it was great.
For dessert, I ordered the Fireweed Honey Butter Tart with roasted plum sauce, which was incredibly rich and delicious. P had the El Rey Chocolate Ganache Cake with blood orange caramel & cappuccino ice cream. I took a small taste of it, and the blood orange caramel was unbelievable.
Overall, a wonderful experience. The food was fantastic, the service excellent, and the setting spectacular.
I'm so beyond over the whole thing, but this is one of the funniest things I've read about it. Beware, the teat makes an appearance...
Sing it, geeks!
I'm as annoyed as anyone with having to actually spend time thinking up e-mail subject lines, but dude, DO NOT OPEN THAT FREAKING MAIL.
