I Heart George

I don't watch a great deal of t.v., especially when the weather outside is so beautiful. BUT - I will make an exception, and this exception's name is George Stroumboulopoulos. Not only is he gorgeous, but he's also informed (a real bonus these days), and I consider him the Canadian equivalent of Bill Maher (gorgeous, funny, informed....oh, and did I mention gorgeous?)

George not only brings Canadian news to life, but his signature black clothing and red leather seats on the set puts a unique and interesting twist on his presentation of the issues at hand. His interview with the late Canadian feminist June Callwood was one of the most touching interviews I have ever seen. These days, I find myself keeping my eye on the clock from 7 onwards and yesterday in IKEA there was a mad dash to the checkout at 7:45 pm to make it home in time to catch my 'boyfriend' George (you know a show is good when...)

His show "The Hour" is on CBC weekdays at 8 p.m.

Hmm! I've seen him Kate, and I knew the name, but have never watched him. Will try to catch the show next time.
LATE June Callwood?
I didn't know. She was great too.

Well he is good looking but think of your children trying to learn to spell their name, bless them :-) Ha! Great blog by the way, Kate!
