It’s Friday, which doesn’t mean much to me, because I’m on vacation! Sorry to rub it in, but it’s amazing here. I’m in Kelowna and it’s so picturesque. There are mountains everywhere, there are wineries everywhere, and the other day I went to a kangaroo and wallaby sanctuary and held a baby kangaroo. Her name is Gracie and I wanted to keep her! I also held a sugar glider, she was incredibly cute as well. Keep posted, I will be doing a post with photos soon. Anyways, you need to know what to watch tonight. Well, you won’t be disappointed.
It’s Friday! Better yet, it’s the last day of work before I’m on vacation for two weeks! I’m on a plane tomorrow and off to visit my mom in beautiful British Columbia, where I will be doing lots of hiking, cooking (look out for some delicious recipes coming your way!) and other generally awesome things. I will be keeping you all posted so keep an eye out. As such, I’ve decided to recommend a movie that has made my husband all the more hesitant to go camping or hiking or into nature at all really. Backcountry was originally recommended to me by Eric over at The IPC who shares my love for horror movies. This recommendation did not disappoint.
Happy Friday to everyone and a VERY happy birthday to my amazing brother, Shane! He’s the very best brother I ever had (and the only brother I ever had) and to honour him today on his birthday, I am going to recommend one of his favourite movies for tonight and let all of your guys know what makes it so great.
“Mary Dinkle’s eyes were the colour of muddy puddles. Her birthmark, the colour of poop.” And so begins an incredibly endearing movie about unconventional friendships, what it is to be normal, and how our connections with other people touch and shape our lives.
I’ve got something a little different going on today, folks. I watched this movie a couple weeks ago and I still can’t put my finger on how I feel about it. I really hope you’ve seen it so we can talk about it. Everyone that I’ve talked to in person has no clue what I’m talking about when I bring it up and when I describe what it’s about, they’re even less interested. It’s honestly the most unique take on a narrative that I’ve ever seen and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not. It’s available on Netflix here in Canada so hopefully it’s available where you are as well. Give it a watch if you have time and let me know what you think.
