  1. what is X Factor? Book? TV? Movie? I’m intrigued!

    Wholeheartedly agree with you on the people who kick the backs of chairs during movies, concerts and even during airline flights. I know it’s cramped quarters but it really bothers me.

    1. Oh it’s basically the UK version of American Idol except it’s really good ’cause they separate them into groups; each judge gets either the Under 25 girls, Under 25 guys, Over 25s or Bands and they kind of rival each other in the competition – dreadfully compelling TV!! lol I have the whole office on it at lunch hour! 🙂

      And yes! Planes are the worst for that!!

    1. A BUNCH of people in the city got hit with a big debit card fraud scam over the last week… people getting access card numbers and PINs and transferring the info to Montreal and making fraudulent purchases… 😦 v. scary!
