Good news: the election is over, yaaay! The bad news: well…. It’s inescapable, isn’t it?
-Snow! Below-freezing temperatures! Wasn’t expecting it so soon after we’ve been riding milder weather since before October. But it is half way through November, I guess…
-The National Ballet of Canada’s production of Cinderella! It’s not often I get out to see a ballet, but I’m glad I finally got to see it this year.
-Mannequin Challenge. Kind of cool? Still think the Harlem Shake of 2014 was better.
-Christmas. Christmas is officially everywhere now, whether you’re into it or not. The Santa Clause parade was on the weekend, which means BRING ON THE JING-A-LING TUNES.
-A little show called Cuisine and Confessions. It was exactly how it sounds: live cooking onstage with some personal stories, and a little bit dance mixed in.
-Good things about the new movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I must see it in a theatre, and in a theatre only, because it is the only way I will get that magical movie experience.
The Big Sleep, by Raymond Chandler. It was…. Interesting? I saw the movie a few years ago, and it was just as confusing as the book, if not more. (Although Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall made a fab team.) Very descriptive and fast paced, but holy heck it was complex.
