1. i don't know why it took me this long to get around to watching the big C. it's laura linney afterall. that should have been a dead giveaway. and then there's the rest of the cast... oliver platt, gabore sidibey, patricia nixon, and the guy who plays the brother... awesome. well-written, authentic character development, flawed but not over the top characters, and clever... not in a laugh out loud kind of way but just lots of real life moments that generally don't make their way onto the small screen. i'm hooked.
2. if you're looking for a fun, lively place to eat in montreal, i highly recommend icehouse.
3. crayons through a hot glue gun: who would have thought?!
4. i think i may need to start a thumbprint friend tree.
