weekend round-up

This weekend was all about the Toronto International Film Festival and me and the bossman kicked it off Thursday afternoon with a trip down to the big bad city!

Friday we were in meetings most of the day and narrowly missed seeing any real celebrities by seemingly minutes judging by the hordes of people everywhere went. At one point, we came out of the Intercontinental Hotel and walked right into a large throng of gawkers and papparazzi who were REALLY hoping we were George Clooney. Alas, we were not.

Friday night we got all gussied up for the OMDC hosted TIFF party celebrating Ontario filmmakers and then out for a late dinner at the Queen Mother with friends Ben and Fran. For those of you who don't follow my Twitter, Ben has a film screening at TIFF this week! It's called "Vs" and my handsome husband did the music for it. If you're in the big city I highly recommend checking out his work - he does some amazing stop-motion animation/still photography/16mm film combo that is truly excellent.

Headed home Saturday into the waiting and napping arms of Marc - yay!!! Spent the rest of the day lazing around and then out to dinner for what's that??? All-you-can-eat-sushi restaurant????? Youpee!!! I think all-you-can-eat-sushi should officially be named the cure for everything ever. Quick drink with my favourite Big City Kelly who showed up in town and then home to bed......sweet sweet bed.

Sunday slept in and spent the day making applesauce made from scratch with the apples from our very own apple tree and since I was in the mood I busted out some of Martha Stewart's kick-butt cowboy cookies and then took a really huge and lovely walk with Sadie to the lake and all around the surrounding neighbourhoods. Home in time to enjoy a dinner of ribs, taboulleh salad loaded with our farm-share veggies and sauteed tatsoi -- YUM!!!

Sunday night (as if you even have to ask) I hunkered down to watch the season finale of True Blood which really kinda sucked. Talk about lack-lustre. Add to that another lack-lustre episode of Entourage and you can imagine how happy I was for the start of Weeds. Mary Louise Parker fixed my Sunday.
