so true. you should try out CBC's Vinyl Cafe Stories (if it's on the american store, it should be!) They're hilarious stories about this guy Dave and his family told by the creator Stuart McLean. I love them, particularly the christmas stories. They're all pretty dysfunctional, but the stories always end on a happy note that is so incredibly heartwarming that you just want to cry. I really think you should try and listen, they're perfect for a subway ride...although try not to be too touched by the stories and end up crying silently on the train. People stare. haha. LOVE!
