-Did it actually happen? Did the world’s most genetically compatible breeders actually tie the knot on Christmas Day at Donna Karan‘s estate in Turks & Caicos? There’s no confirmation or denial from Brange‘s camp yet, but the report first originated in The Telegraph (which makes it a whole lot more creditable than if it came from, say, Life & Style).

-My original flight home was cancelled, so I spent most of New Year’s Eve trying to Steve Martin it back to Toronto. The only thing that got me through it was watching all those Luther episodes I downloaded ages ago. Holy crap, why did it take me so long to catch up with this show?! It’s only two seasons (so far) of 4-6 episodes each, which is way too short. Thank god 2013 is shaping up to be the year of Idris Elba!
