October Monthly News


Welcome to the October edition of monthly news!
One of my favorite months of the year! I love all things Spooky! Spooky movies, tv shows and Halloween! I already have my costume picked out, what about you?

We also had Canadian Thanksgiving. 
With being mixed race, it was hard for me this year. My caucasian side couldn't wait to have turkey dinner, but the Native side was feeling rebellious and not wanting to celebrate. I sometimes feel torn between my two heritages. This year has been exceptionally difficult with the residential school findings. I want to be thankful, and I try to be, but it's tough sometimes.
The best part of Thanksgiving was spending it with my beautiful daughter.
She lives so far from me and is busy teaching young minds, that moments like this I literally live for. Wish my son was also here but unfortunately he could not be. Rare are the days that I get them both home together.
Anyone else an empty nester? Do you feel my pain?

My favorite day of the year came today... HALLOWEEN!
I am the Trekkie and my work bestie is the scary Jack-O-Lantern.
I almost got the Vulcan sign up before my boss snapped the shot. Almost... LOL
What were you all dressed as this year? Do tell me in the comments.
Happy Halloween to you all!

  1. Glad that you were able to spend the holiday with your daughter even if celebrating felt odd. So glad you enjoyed Cemetery Boys. It was one of my favorite reads last year. Happy November!

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
