God bless you Uncle Sam  

Mater is back from gallivanting around yon far Canadia! I'm ever so pleased. I actually like my mother an awful lot. Not to mention that she brought me back lots of shiny things. I must say this now, or forever hold my peace: I ADORE AMERICAN CLOTHES. Well, Canadian too (there's not that much difference for me, and they're all made in Sri Lanka or China or Vietnam anyway). I don't know if it's just that I don't buy Tommy Hilfiger over here and so don't realise that they're nicer than your average department store crap, but foriegn TH is so much BIGGER. And better-fitting. I don't give two hoots if they're last season, they could be last century for all I care. When I grow up *snerk* I want to be one of those people who takes two weekend trips and three empty suitcases to New York or Boston every year and cleans out the bargain basement at Macy's or whatever it is.

Ma saw Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst and Richard Gere in Toronto for the film festival. I asked her what Orlando was like in the flesh. Her response was: "Short. With a beardy thing."

Still damn cool, though.

Note: I must take yaoi_daily off my flist! I was having heart attacks over these odd pairings that kept winding up in my flist, posted by people I'd never clapped eyes on before. (I figured out what was going on eventually. Say three days later.) It clogs up my flist, I'm too impatient to wait for the really "interesting" scans to download and I'm starting to think that yaoi and the whole seme/uke trend is just a new branch of misogyny. What? I had to make up some social observation to compensate for the utter self-indulgence of this entire post ...

Nah, I'll keep it and wait for broadband. *evil hands*

I think that's probably how my mum would describe Johnny Depp.

Yer mum is so cool. A real-life celebrity spotter. (There must be something wrong when I'm admiring the people who see celebrities...)

Re: Achoo!
My mother highly regards Johnny Depp after PotC. She disapproves of pretty boys, of whom Orlando is a major member. xD

Heh, I was jumping and squealing, and they weren't even Ian Somerhalder! She said Richard Gere didn't look like Richard Gere, too. Go figure.

Your mom sounds awesome. >D

She is! My brother broke one of my necklaces a few weeks ago, and she brought back three from some flea market to make up! Also two condoms for uni. Which was kind of sad. (I mean, only two?)

If you come to America to go shopping, you must bring me with you. :D And your Ma is cute. XD The seme/uke thing doesn't do anything for me. I like a power play between two equals, or men who treat each other as equals, even if they're not.

Totally, babes. xD Not that I will, eg, know where I'm going or anything (and I have the sense of direction of a dead sheepdog). Same here -- I can understand that in some, if not all, relationships, someone is stronger and someone weaker. But in everything? A perfect balance? Er, I think not ...

That was my first thought, too *ducks*. Then again, we've got igloos, eh?

Toronto sounds the business. I now plan to live there, after London and Los Angeles.

Also Margaret Atwood!

You should, but I agree London should be first. A few months ago I saw Alan Rickman, he was filming something... Can't remember what.

Gawd no. Beards should be banned by law!

Yeah ... I was feeling wild, you know? :P

He was recently in Teen Vogue and is spread like literally made me want him so bad. Tell your Mom that I am extremely jealous of her.

I won't tell Kate Bosworth, I promise.

I will do. I don't think she gets celebrity obsession, unless it's Posh and Becks, but I will tell her. xD

Heh. I may have been a few blocks away from your mom, then, if she was in Toronto. *waves*

It's true about European and North American sizes. A size 4 over here would be 14 or something over there. Probably because we're all fatter we need that little ego boost.

She went to Niagara Falls and also to York University and brought me back two condoms, that's all I know. :P

Wow, that makes me a 4! You have no idea how good my body image is right now. I think I should just live in America.

York Schmork! They're our uni rivals.

Condoms? o.O

Glad I could help :)
