Fried Rice beginnings

Today looks promising. First I slept in an extra half an hour, it’s a luxury. Waking up at 5am instead of 4:30am makes a huge difference.

It’s Rachelle Lefevre in Rome with Paul Giamatti and that sexy beast Scott Speedman shooting Barney’s Version based on Mordecai Richler’s famous novel of the same name.

McGosling glimmer

Lainey Posted by Lainey at August 12, 2009 08:22:42 August 12, 2009 08:22:42

I thought they were nuts. Then the Twi-Hards came along and redefined crazy. But before Stephenie Meyer ignited the lunatic gene in those losers, the McGoslings did indeed foam all over the internets hoping the real life rowboat would happen. Oh those halcyon days.
