Exhibits and October Annoucements!

Usually I post up my personal update on on Saturday but since I had one midweek HERE, I decided to wait for tonight to give you the fresh news as to whats up in my very awesome (but mostly boring) life 😉

My eye is doing very well by the way! 🙂 Its probably going to be a slow recovery but it will get there and thats the great part about it, right?

This weekend has been absolutely fabulous weather and this morning was my hangout with my girl friends.  One of them is a fellow blogger Day’s Lee.  If you haven’t visited her blog, you definitely should.  She’s new with the blogosphere so give her some support 🙂 She’s a great friend and previous coworker of mine and we always have lots of fun along with our other friend (who I was bridesmaid for back in May).

Today’s girl outings started with a delicious brunch at Quartier Dix30 at Oeuf & Cie.

After that, we went off to Old Montreal at the Point a Calliere Museum to see The Beatles in Montreal exhibit.

The more detailed post will go up for this exhibit and another one that this ticket allowed access to called La Route du The (The Tea Route) will go up some time on Monday.

Both of the exhibits were really awesome and I urge you to drop by tomorrow to check it out.  After I post this, I’ll be flipping through the pictures in detail to get the post done 🙂

Tonight, I also had a long awaited date night with my boyfriend 🙂 We went to see Riddick.  The review is coming up.  I didn’t end up rewatching Chronicles of Riddick so to keep things short.  It was a tad slow and I saw about 70% of that movie and slept through the other parts.  Maybe I will revisit it one day but since I already saw the new one. I might as well do that review first.  I’m sure its more relevant as well.  That should go up tomorrow as well.

Aside from all the blog drafting, here is the OCTOBER ANNOUNCEMENT!

Most of you probably weren’t following me last October but I did a very interesting (for me) Halloween marathon that featured almost 30 movies (if I remembered correctly).  10 animated, 10 thrillers, and ending with 10 intense horror films.  It was crazy hectic so I’m going with less this year and well, I have the lineup done already for the most part.  The highlight will be my Halloween series marathon.  I had a debate between that and Friday the 13th…but that won because I had recently bought all the movies when I was in Burlington 🙂 I will also be doing random horror of all kinds here and there.  My goal is to have the first review up on Tuesday.  I’ll be aiming for about 15 movies in this marathon.

For October, I’m going to keep it mostly Halloween theme so I have some baking planned and a few exhibits (one confirmed so far) planned.  It’ll be fun! I also have a few movies that I want to see in theatres so if all that happens, October will prove to be a very eventful one that one will make up for this past one and the coming one in November.  Lets not get ahead of ourselves though 🙂

Before I head off, here’s a cute little picture of my cat, who is encouraging me to sleep all the time and succeeding this week…

Remember to drop by again and check out the exhibits and for the eventful October Halloween month ! 🙂

If you have any movies you’d like to suggest (preferably on Netflix), I’d love to hear some suggestions or recommendations! What do you usually like to make for Halloween?

Last year, I also did a piano cover of Candyman theme (you can see it HERE)! I was thinking of doing another one, any horror movie theme song that you’d like me to do?

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Daily Prompt: The Satisfaction of a List

Sunday’s daily promptWho doesn’t love a list? So write one! Top five slices of pizza in your town, ten reasons disco will never die, the three secrets to happiness — go silly or go deep, just go list-y.

I have lists for EVERYTHING! You know why? Because I’m forgetful…but no, I’m not going to give you pains as to what part of the house I need to clean and the whole Cinderella things in my life.  My mind went into crazy choices of what list to make since Sunday morning.  Till now, I’ll probably end up jump start multiple lists to fit the whole versatility that this is all about…

This has changed direction as I started writing that paragraph up there…I was going to do my Top 5 Hong Kong Action Movies, but then, I decided to be more on the Hong Kong Action Stars BUT in light of the Boston bombings, I’ve decided to steer away from violent themes and stick to my backup plan!

LIST OF PLACES/EXHIBITS TO VISIT THIS SUMMER/YEAR! (I actually just jotted these down last week, so perfect timing…)

1) The Beatles in Montreal at Pointe a Calliere Museum (LINK)

2) Planet Shark: Predator or Prey at Montreal Science Center (LINK)

3) Visit the new Planetarium (LINK)

4) Revisiting Ottawa’s The Canadian Tulip Festival (LINK)

9) She&Him (Zooey Deschanel!) for Montreal Jazz Festival (still have to get tickets…)

10) Agricultural Fair in Trois Rivieres, QC (site for 2013 not up yet)

Coincidentally my list had 10 items 🙂 There are many other events, like I’m still planning for the 2 weeks vacation split in 2 separate weeks or weekends, depending on what happens.  Lots of lists are being drafted in my notebook right now 🙂 After that its decisions to see what we can do!

Any of these events sound fun to you? I’ve always wanted to do a wine route..lets hope it’ll happen this year. I had to go and ruin this morning’s coolness with going back to my nerdy roots and listing as the first few items as Sharks and Planets ;).

To my Montreal friends (I think some of them read it..haha), any of them interest you that you want to go with me..FB or text or email me, k? Don’t be shy 🙂

I really had fun with this and I have a few more list  ideas! Whose down for more lists? Any suggestions?
