  • My kitchen is now dark chocolate brown and beige. It will be even more beige next week.
  • California blinds are just like Venetian blinds, only with larger wooden slats.
  • Having the right, niftily-designed shower caddy solves many problems.
  • The comfy gel wrist rests I'm currently using with my computer are available to buy/replace in the UK.
  • Revenge of the Sith - yep, it was a movie. I want Padme's hair stylist.
  • The dollar store at Charles and Yonge sells mini Toblerone bars for 59 cents. (Thanks, aerinah!)
  • Insomnia (Bathurst and Bloor) still has good potatoes.
  • How can a street as short as mine have four speed humps proposed for it?
