Post of Randomness: The First

I am well rested and drinking peach iced tea (#peaktea), so I am in a super fabulous mood. I am also new to posting on GT, so hello to people wondering 'who is this strange excitable person?'! » 3/12/15 3:23pm 3/12/15 3:23pm

Females are Strong as Hell: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt


NBC really screwed the pooch on this one. This show is so charming with such a dark, hidden underbelly, it's disturbing what you find yourself laughing at. Does it have problems and problematic jokes? Absolutely. But it's very hard to find any piece of pop culture that is 100% unproblematic. There was a Cosby… » 3/07/15 1:27am 3/07/15 1:27am

Quality Plus: Lands' End


Living in Canada, there are limited options for Plus Sizes in brick and mortar stores. In my experience, the clothing is overpriced, doesn't hold its shape and has a short lifespan. There are some better quality boutique stores, but the size selection is smaller and the price point is much higher. Online shopping… » 1/27/15 1:47pm 1/27/15 1:47pm

Bloody Good Reads: The Dark Room by Minette Walters

This is the book that really hooked me into the genre of British crime mysteries. I read it when I was 14 and then immediately read it again. It remains one of my favourite books to this day. » 1/24/15 12:52pm 1/24/15 12:52pm

What kinds of mysteries do you want?

I love mysteries. I've read thousands of them. It's my absolute favourite genre. But because it's such a big genre, I'm having trouble narrowing down some authors or series to highlight for this week. » 1/07/15 6:43pm 1/07/15 6:43pm

Into the woods and out of the woods and home before dark!

I AM GOING TO THE INTO THE WOODS SCREENING, GUYS! » 12/12/14 10:18pm 12/12/14 10:18pm

I'm so excited. I saw this at Stratford many years ago and fell deeply in love with it - it was my gateway into the wonderful world of Sondheim musicals. I think I entered to win tickets about 60 times. This is great. The next two weeks are going to be stressful with…

7 Brothers Send Their Sister Off In Style

I know we've seen a lot of wedding reception dance videos but I really love this one because it's all her brothers! They range in age from 15 to 46 and threw this together in 6 hours. It's not slick and perfect but it's from the heart. » 12/12/14 5:17am 12/12/14 5:17am

Scholarships/Bursaries for Canadians going to the USA and vice versa

In the last 2 days, I've talked to 2 people who want to cross the border for university - both in almost the exact same field. » 11/27/14 10:14pm 11/27/14 10:14pm

What's Awesome Right Now?

I just discovered Maplecroft by Cherie Priest and I'm hooked. It's a haunting, science fiction interpretation of the Lizzie Borden story, set after the trial. » 11/23/14 2:16pm 11/23/14 2:16pm

Help! Easy, tasty vegan recipes needed

For Christmas, I'm cooking my parents a romantic vegan dinner. I'm not a fabulous cook though, but if it's a straightforward recipe, I can make some yummy food. Also I'd prefer stuff that isn't super time-consuming. » 11/20/14 4:27pm 11/20/14 4:27pm

Cities That Never Sleep: My Favourite Urban Fantasy

Urban Fantasy is contemporary fantasy set in a recognizable world, usually very close to our own. TV show examples would include Angel, True Blood, The Originals, Lost Girl and Grimm. It's my favourite fictional genre and I'd like to share some of my favourite book series with you. » 11/12/14 5:59pm 11/12/14 5:59pm
