There's a beautiful picture of, and a very nice story, about Toni Collette, in this week's ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, which reminds me: go see JAPANESE STORY if it's coming to a theater near year.

Adam and I saw it last weekend, and we were both just blown away. It starts off slow, and Collette's Sandy isn't the most instantly likable character you've ever seen on the big screen, but...well, it just kind of sneaks up on you. And the movie's last fifteen minutes, in which only a handful of words are spoken, are incredibly powerful. And Toni Collette was incredibly powerful. I think she can do anything. I think she's going to be a wonderful Rose.

Also, if you have a chance and you like chocolate (and who doesn't?), pick up Friday's WALL STREET JOURNAL (I would like to it, but they're not online, as they are capitalists). The catalogue shopping column reviews high-end Valentine's Day treats, and I got to come in and taste them and rank them for the story because I am a quote-unquote "romance expert." Who knew?
