|Ryan Gosling at TIFF 2010|
Merry Christmas, Mavenati! However you're spending the day, I hope it's special and that you're surrounded by those you love. And that applies even if you don't observe the Holiday.
I just finished my Christmas shopping this afternoon, before heading off to see The Coen Brothers' True Grit and now am just typing with Billy nestled at my feet. Tomorrow I'll be spending the day with Family and getting up to prepare some Sushi as part of our big Dinner up in the (905). I also made a batch of Cake Pops too, which I'm sure they'll love....
If you're in and around Toronto, you'll be happy to know that the Celebrities are out-and-about in full force:
- As our beloved @ShinanGovani reports, Amy Poehler (Parks & Recreation, Saturday Night Live) and her Toronto-born and raised Husband Will Arnett (Arrested Development) were seen out in Yorkville earlier today at Starbucks. I hope they know that it's not open tomorrow!
- While wrapping up my Shopping, I saw Ryan Gosling right in front of my Condo Building incognito in Sunglasses and a Cap, before heading west along Bloor St. possibly to do a bit of last-minute shopping? Twitter reports also show that he was doing Groceries at Fortino's yesterday and took a Picture even with some Fans. Keep a look out!
- Chanteuse Avril Lavigne and Reality TV Star Boyfriend Brody Jenner are in-and-around the Kingston area as the Napanee-born Singer is home visiting Family. They were spotted at Toronto Pearson International Airport earlier this week and the Paparazzi have been v. diligent!
- Rapper Drake is back in the City, with a Fundraiser to Host on Sunday night and I'll be in attendance for that!
- Underworld Actor Scott Speedman was seen at Shopper's Drug Mart at Queen x John Thursday and has lots of Family in the City
- Sum 41's Deryck Whibley, former Husband of Avril Lavigne and Ajax native, was seen partying at the Drake Hotel last night and apparently over-indulged
- Earlier today, Actor Hayden Christensen was north of the City at Chapters Bookstore. He has family up in the (905)
Many other Celebrities like Jim Carrey and Christian Slater are known to visit Toronto too during the Holidays, and although there haven't been any sightings yet, one should keep their eyes peeled. Even Celebrities cannot resist a good deal on Boxing Day!
Eat plenty and do not be afraid to use your elbows if that's what it takes to get that pair of Shoes you've been eyeing forever!
