Have a Wonderful Weekend

Have a Wonderful Weekend

This weekend Simon and I are going to the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards. Among this year's recipients of the highest honour in the performing arts in Canada are Sarah McLachlan, Atom Egoyan and Jean-Marc Vallee (he directed The Texas Buyers Club and Wild) so it should be entertaining. It's a black tie affair, meaning we have to get all fancy and stuff. Nothing in my closet that comes even close to that level of glam, so I'm taking advantage of this service. I go for a private fitting tomorrow morning. They have heaps of dresses to choose from, some by designers whose dresses were worn on the red carpet at the Academy Awards. Wow!

Here are a few interesting links from around the web:

The best way to poach an egg or cut a mango? Check out these excellent cooking videos.

Other than her non-comedic performance in Saint Vincent, I haven't enjoyed much of what Melissa McCarthy has done since the hit film Bridesmaids, but this looks funny.

Love this food photography.

The small, happy life.
