Well, I think we'll have to move Denmark up a couple of notches on our Travel WishList. Last night, I had an overwhelming craving for a breaded fish/open faced sandwich (I know! WTF?!). And so this morning - in a completely unrelated moment of yearning - I wikipediaed Copenhagen just... because. And what do I learn? That the national dish is a breaded fish/open faced sandwich! This is no coincidence.
Red Colored Elegy is finally being released en français by les Éditions Cornélius, who make the most beautiful books. No date set for a Canadian release yet, and no one is anwsering my emails at Renaud-Bray (nice going RB). Will I have to wait until our next trip to Paris in 2011?

Article in today's Times. My Name is Khan also opens in MTL today at the AMC.
And in a creepy 'Life imitates Art' incident, Shahrukh Khan was arrested at Newark this summer (this is the aforementionned movie's plot). WTF? Read about it here. I've been a BIG fan of King Khan ever since Devdas (read my glowing 2002 nano-review here, and me drooling over a Shahrukh cameo here), so how I missed this particular tidbit of American as(s)ininity I'll never know.
I think someone needs to go and get herself a new Google Alert.
In today's Times.
I'm not sure how I feel about this - I love that stretch of Broadway precisely because of the Canal St./Anything goes/Haggle-me-silly feel of it. It seems to me that it was one of the last places in Manhattan devoid of Starbucks and BlackBerrys. Give it a couple of years and it'll start to look & feel as generic as the rest of the city... Shame.
