      Well, I guess it depends how you define happy ending.
      Like, is it happy if the person dies but the cause gets a boost?
      Or, if the person dies but her friend soldiers on?
      Or, if the person dies, but got what was coming to them?

        Hahahahaha, if the good person dies in not so happy the ending πŸ™‚
        I’m not sure you ever read that I was only dating Adam Sandler until the sucker made me weep πŸ™‚ (And almost puked on Big Daddy… And after like 5 days I saw it, you wrote about the scene and I had to gag again!!) πŸ˜€

    This is very cool! #1 cracks me up, I think #15 is implied based on that, ahah. #12 made me happy, of course we need more but hey it’s a start! Great job everyone, hopefully I can join you one day at TIFF πŸ˜€

    100: times I screamed, “YOU LUCKY DOGS!” whilst reading this post.
    I so envy you. I’d give my left lung to attend. But I’m happy for you all. Really.
    10,000: times I may have to silently repeat that until it becomes true.

    It is funny, I originally told myself I would be eating healthy at TIFF this year and that went out of the window by Day 2. Like you guys, burgers became the unofficial food of choice for the festival this year.
