Parental Discretion Advised

February 13, 2012 by

The biggest test of a relationship’s strength (well, besides hockey playoffs, ladies, am I right?) has got to be meeting the parents.

Going to the Dogs Part One

December 5, 2011 by

Have you ever dated someone that was out of your league? I wish I could say I have, but unfortunately, I have absolutely no idea what league I’m in. It’s not just me; I’m pretty sure everybody has days when they wake up feeling like Naomi Campbell and the world is their fashion runway. Read More >>

On the contrary! Read More >>

Cheesy Romance

October 17, 2011 by

I have two loves in my life: bearded, curly-haired hipsters and cheese. If forced to choose between one and the other, I would pick cheese. After all, we’ve been sleeping together longer. So you can imagine how thrilled I was when I innocently stumbled upon the one place in Toronto that caters to BOTH of these loves. Its name? “Cheese Magic” – a store where skinny, bearded hipsters dole out slabs of Havarti and Gorgonzola at reasonable prices. Read More >>
