If you're wondering what's new and refreshing this summer, you might want to pick up this month's Toronto Life. Nice article about cocktails in there.

The prospect of a garbage strike has us none too thrilled. We began a policy of eating out for every meal yesterday. We make exceptions for food brought in in styrofoam containers. I'm not making the fatal mistake of having a seafood risotto the day before the strike this year, even though it was a valuable lesson in the wonders of the ecosystem seeing what happened to squid guts bake on a front porch for 12 days.

But I'm happy to report that I am no longer really afraid of the garbage strike, having realized that the pickups are important to our household functioning, but not an essential service like this.

I just want to say the loss of Joey Greco on Cheaters is a blow to reality television. But if that's too lowbrow for you, I found a nice little review of Marilyn Powell's Cool in today's Globe and Mail. Proust is mentioned.
