So in case you haven’t heard or haven’t been reading your blogs and what-not, today is the first day of Fall. And I, like so many others, love fall. It’s makes me want to be all cozy and do all sorts of cozy things and use the word cozy a lot.
But seriously, today could not be more fall-ish in Montreal. It’s grey, it’s cool, it’s been drizzling and raining all day, and I could not be happier to have an excuse to stay home and bask in the, um, cozyness.
I tried my hand at baking zucchini bread for the first time earlier today, and lo and behold, it was a success! And awfully delicious too. Shortly, James will go off to another gig and I will have the house to myself. No chores today, I’ve lit candles everywhere and it’s just going to be books and movies for me……and Facebook…..and blogs…..but mostly books and movies! And wine.
Happy Fall everyone!!!

Lats Thursday night, my life’s dream was fulfilled.
That may sounds like a bit of an exaggeration, but I kid you not, I was made one of the happiest, luckiest girls on the planet. My once again kick-ass company managed to score 4 Madonna tickets. Working in almost all male environment, it’s rare that the girls are able to really do something completely for them. Tickets usually revolve around hockey games and rarely does something like this come up.
But these weren’t any old Madonna tickets. Nor sirree. These were 350$ floor seats….for MADONNA….THE QUEEN. and I will never again/would never have gotten to experience this any other way. The last time I saw her, I drove to Connecticut with a group just to be able to catch a far away glimpse, so this was literally a dream come true.
And let me tell you, she did not disappoint. Not even for a second. I get so tired of the old “Oh, Madonna is such a biatch” debate. Because really, WHO CARES? She’s a genius who has managed to brand and re-brand herself for decades. And at 54, she looks bloody amazing!
Love her or hate her, take her or leave her, there really is no denying that she’s the queen and knows exactly what she’s doing.
