Halloween, Heavy Winds & One Life!

Randomness, I know! Thats what my personal posts are about.  That about wraps up what this week felt like.

Nothing much happened for the first part of it because my life was absorbed with work.  Thank goodness that I had watched 5 movies last weekend so my movie marathon didn’t drop off. It held up pretty well 🙂 I’m quite proud of it.  I tallied up an awesome 21 movies this year. I watched some amazing ones, some that had a lot of potential but didn’t fully perform and some just downright was horrible.  I think the best ones had to be the thrillers: Hard Candy and 5150 Rue Des Ormes.  Lord of Tears was my highlight as it turned out to be a pleasant surprise.   I also feel a bit more knowledgeable about the whole Michael Myers thing now.  Maybe next year will be Friday the 13th series or Nightmare on Elm Street.  Its a year away, so who knows what’ll happen, right? Thanks to everyone who dropped by, liked, commented and read it, gave me more recommendations, etc.  You all are fabulous and amazingly awesome!

Now that my sappy part is done! Lets move on!

November not only marked the start of NaNoWriMo but my goodness, we had crazy heavy winds on Friday.  I was sitting there freaking out my huge evergreens were going to topple over.  That would’ve been a disaster.  One of the neighbors actually had that, but they were lucky that it just fell sideways and brushed against their car shelter frame.  I’m guessing they were happy that they had the car shelter up or else it would’ve been their car.  The winds were howling and whistling and making all kinds of crazy noises.  I recorded this on my way home.  Its pitch black but still, you can hear it…

I hate the dark so yeah, that was kind of creepy.  Plus, one gust of the wind shifted my foot and almost made me trip.  Falling flat on my face would’ve been slightly embarrassing and painful, right?

What better when I got home but to cuddle up with my darling kitty and watch TV 🙂

On the note of that, I started watching a series this week and well, catching up to its current season.  I should be watching the new fall season but I’ve been wanting to check this out for a while: Once Upon a Time!

I just finished Season 1 yesterday! Let me tell you, it was pretty good.  The whole concept is cool.  I think the best character has to be the man who plays Rumpelstiltskin/Mr. Gold. He kicks some serious ass and I can see his character having some serious potential for the most character development. I’m just a bit angry because they kept killing off the characters I like.  Funny enough, as I was loving the guy who played Huntsman, I read that he was the new guy casted for Fifty Shades of Grey.  LOL!

I can picture him doing Christian Grey.  I have no objections, although I doubt I’d actually go see it in theatres anyways.

Moving on…

Yesterday night was our annual Halloween party at my boyfriend’s sister’s place.  She has these awesome parties every year and its the one time of the year where I get completely wasted.  I’m still experiencing slight migraines as I type this up.  Her husband makes these crazy punches, plus this year she tripled my apricot brandy sour when I first got there.  Either way, lets not dive into my alcoholic lifestyle.

The theme this year was CINEMA! Hell yeah, right? Right up my alley! Unfortunately, I learned that apparently my most favorite getup was just one: Alice from Resident Evil and I already did that last year.  After rummaging around last Sunday on a very urgent costume run, my boyfriend ended up getting a new costume and I came up with a very improv version of Princess Mononoke! Until yesterday, I realized that I forgot to get face paint and the stores had already closed so it wasn’t done too well but still, I tried.

I didn’t take a lot of good pictures so huge thanks to my boyfriend’s sister.  She let me borrow one with my boyfriend to share 🙂

I have no idea what happened but I like this pic :)

We were a crazy group yesterday: Hannibal Lector (my boyfriend), Black Swan (my boyfriend’s sister), Killer clown/It (not sure which but that was her husband).  Their friends also came as Saw, Exorcist, Gremlins, Addams Family, Dick Tracy, Rambo, Dracula,  the Queen of Hearts (I think) and Avatar.  There was one I wasn’t sure what it was, above my knowledge of films.  I had to try to learn some new names and had some nice chats.

This is getting a tad lengthy so I’m going to end this with some music! As most of you know, I’m a huge Boyce Avenue fan.  I’m happy that they are getting so successful and now they are even more awesome because they are giving back to society.  The new single they released is 100% for charity.  I love the song: the rhythm and the lyrics all very meaningful. Its called One Life.  They just posted up with a collab with a lot of Youtube artists and the video is amazing!

Since its for charity, makes it even more meaningful to buy it.  Hope you like it! 🙂

I have to go vote at provincial elections now! Exciting, right? *rolls eyes*

Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Fun post Kim! I haven’t finished all of season 1 of Once Upon a Time yet but I quite enjoyed the episodes I did watch. Ahah, I actually didn’t think the guy who played Sheriff could play Christian Grey, I mean he’s cute but just not seductive material, but then again I probably won’t watch that film anyway.

      I’m guessing according to fans, no one would fit the role of Christian Grey. Its impossible to find a guy thats going to fit every woman’s taste, right? I thought he was pretty good looking, I think he can pull it off 🙂 But I’m not going to watch the movie, at least not right away, I’ll wait and I’m guessing its going to fail anyways. By the time 50 Shades comes out, I’m guess it’ll already be too late, the hype would be over.

      I just started Once Upon a Time Season 2. I think they set it up really good for an awesome season. Too much TV to catch up with.
