Toronto
A Montreal girl living in Toronto with her cat, Sir Sean Connery. She has an embarrassingly large soft-spot for Celine Dion... It's not like she's seen her live or anything......6 times........and has all her CDs..... and maybe she's read a biography or 3..... or something........
Interests: Good ol' Canadian music, cats named after Hollywood hunks, Lebanese food, and on weekends, amaretto sours.

I would never complain about getting new music from Bear's Den... but I so so wish this was a full album.
