Over the Rainbow to Kansas City

Over the Rainbow to Kansas City

As a little born and bred Canadian girl, I never thought I’d say this: but man do I love Kansas City, Missouri. I have a weird life. I got lucky enough to audition for a show ten years ago (Firefly) that turned into a little cult hit with the most dedicated orange hat-wearing, Hero Of(…)

Hawaii-Style Chicken and Rice

Hawaii-Style Chicken and Rice

So it’s snowing here. I’m fed up with winter. I’ve had it with my high-heeled open toed sandals peeking at me from the depths of my closet. My sweaters have been in a relentless rotation. My hands are constantly cold and I seem to have had the sniffles for months now, which means a chapped(…)

A Toast to Halifax

A Toast to Halifax

I should probably be posting something Christmasy or holiday-y, because ’tis the season and all that, and lord knows we just haven’t got enough holiday bullshit I mean cheer to stuff our stockings with quite yet.

Just Call Me Mrs. NYC

Just Call Me Mrs. NYC

Okay. I know I say I love a lotta places. But this time it’s for reals. New York has swept into my world like a once in a lifetime love, the kind of love you introduce to your parents, a love you wear a ring for, a wild and crazy love that changes you forever.(…)

Bonjour, Bitches!

Bonjour, Bitches!

Whew, guys! Where do I begin? So remember that time I told you I was going to take a little vacay after my show was over to, y’know, experience some R&R and take it down a notch? Yeah well, not so much. I made the mistake of picking Montreal and New York as my places(…)
