Yup seriously I wanna know what bathroom product I am wahahaha! why didn't I end up with bath soap instead, I love soap. Maybe because I love peppermint instead of vanilla in my toothpaste. Of course I love mint in my toothpaste and vanilla goes in soap. Oh guess I'm still lucky didn't end up with a loofah ... not bad. =)

I am a Toothpaste!

Feeling a bit of the country side?

A rustic feel brings memories of me to a cabin, a lodge, or a log house with your house near the woods or with a feel of trees and nature. Brings me closer to living in the country side away from the fast paced life here in the city. I imagine having a little comfy fireplace in my living room. Sometimes taking a break out of the closed space apartments or condo and embrace a little laid back living can do wonders to our pre-occupied thinking.

Kris Allen the Season's Dark Horse

Though gained many unfavorable responses from the American Idol Fans (even from my husband he's a big Adam fan you know and I can still remember his sigh remarks after Adam lose) kudos to Kris Allen on keeping his feet on the ground and maintaining his charisma after all this. Anyways we can't do anything about it he's "The Dark Horse" now. Aside from "Ain't No Sunshine" I also love this one "Falling Slowly" .

At The Keg Mansion for a Superb Creepy Dinner

My husband for so long wanted to bring me to a special dinner. And he purposely liked to go on a steakhouse for his love of steak. Brought me here at the Keg Mansion located near the corner of Jarvis and Wellesley. Though a bit creepy I didn't know it was as they say haunted, until I read the history on the leaflets the receptionists are giving to guests.

While waiting for food we took some pictures inside the restroom where they say it was. Though I was feeling a little bit creepy. I don't ever want some ghost encounters of that kind just want to take pictures for memorabilias.

Anyways overall I really enjoyed the dinner. Price is a little above range but the serving and the delicious food speaks well worth it. Plus the superb service. And a little side trip of creepiness. It definitely is a recommended place for dinner. Moreso for the steaklovers.

My choice is the SIRLOIN & DUNGENESS CRAB and for my husband the NEW YORK CLASSIC.

A little piece of history courtesy of www.jarvismansiondistrict.com :
Located at 515 Jarvis StreetThe Keg Mansion, formerly known as Euclid Hall is a prominent heritage building in downtown Toronto, Canada. The structure was originally built in 1868 by Arthur McMaster, nephew of the prominent businessman William McMaster. At the time Jarvis Street was one of the wealthiest parts of Toronto and the street was lined by large manors. The house was set back from the street and surrounded by large gardens.

In 1880 it was purchased by Hart Massey and his wife who had just returned to Toronto from Cleveland. The building was named Euclid Hall by Massey's granddaughter Lillian, after Euclid Street in Cleveland. The Masseys expanded the house and added greenhouses outside. Hart Massey's sons bought homes surrounding the manor. To the north his son Chester D. Massey built the home where Hart's grandchildren Vincent and Raymond were raised.

As the area became more urban the Masseys left, and various commercial operations moved into the area. The manor served as the first home of Toronto radio station CFRB in the 1920s and was home to an art gallery for several decades until 1960. It then became a restaurant named Julie's Mansion. The grounds were sold off and the greenhouses demolished and replaced with a service station. In the 1970s it became home to a The Keg franchise, and it was renamed the Keg Mansion.

Adam and Kris for the Finals on American Idol Season 8

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen remains in-tact for the Top 2 on American Idols Season 8. Danny Gokey who has never been to the bottom three was voted off and gained the lowest of the 88 million votes.

Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi chose One Republic’s "Apologize" for Kris Allen, but seemed not to gain favor for the judges. The "Season's Dark Horse" as the judges call him bounced back with his very good interpretation of "Heartless" by Kanye West as his own choice, for which he accompanied himself on the guitar. Judge Randy Jackson even declared that Allen’s performance was "better than the original" and Simon Cowell said it made him into a contender.

Adam Lambert on his trademark rock performance made his own choice of "Crying" by Aerosmith and Simon's choice of "One" by U2. Simon said he deserved America’s votes because he showed real talent.

Danny Gokey was given "Dance Little Sister" by Terence Trent D'Arby from Paula Abdul. The judges thought the song choice was good for him but weren’t that impressed with the performance especially with his dancing which Kara said is a little "desperate". He also bounced back with his personal choice – Joe Croker's "You are So Beautiful". Simon called it a "vocal master class".

Kris Allen was the first to be called safe maybe due to his performance of "Heartless" that saved him. Second to be called is Adam Lambert who is also a bit nervous not making it to the finals. Danny was eliminated.

Fringe Season 1 Finale

Questions will be answered in the climactic all-new first season finale of "Fringe" as the elusive William Bell (guest star Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek) is finally introduced in the "There's More Than One of Everything" episode of FRINGE airing Tuesday, May 12 (9:04-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

When asked about how the second season of Fringe would differ from the first, Abrams ( Fringe co-creator) said, “The first year is about learning there is an enemy ... I would argue Season 2 is about getting to know the enemy ... Season 1 is building to a very specific type of confrontation ... there will be a really interesting shift in the fundamental paradigm of the show in a very cool way.”
