Friday evening we stayed in & rented “The Shallows” from iTunes.  I thought & Kim thought it would be awesome!  I guess we both had really high expectations for, here’s a quick rundown of the film.

Jaws+127 Hours+Castaway-Sharkweek=The Shallows

In the first 15 minutes she broke ALL of the rules when swimming in the ocean.  She played the role of a surfer from Texas, who apparently has never watched any of the episodes during “Shark week” on the discovery channel.  I’m just assuming her family doesn’t have the discovery channel or Netflix?  1.  Don’t swim alone.  2.  Tell others where you’re going.  3.  Don’t bleed in the water.  4.  Don’t swim during the evening.  5.  Don’t try to survive on top of a whale carcass that’s floating & has been half eaten

Most of the dialogue in the trailer must’ve hit the editing room floor?

 

Saturday was Kim’s birthday.  I felt guilty, I was a bad husband.  Went to a Saskatchewan Roughrider game.  Dad & I were soaked, my feet got cold & wet from all of the rain.  We left at half time.  Our rain gear didn’t really help much!  I had to change EVERYTHING & put a towel on my wheelchair.  I haven’t left a game that early since the “Labour Day Classic” in 2008.  Andy Fantuz brought me an autographed jersey in the hospital & 2 tickets to the game.  It was windy, cold, & raining.  So we left at half time.

Saturday night I saw “Jay & Silent Bob get old” at the casino with Corey.  In my defense, we bought the tickets months ago & it was on a different date.  They changed the date & it happened to land on Kim’s birthday?  It was HILARIOUS!  Quite offensive if you don’t like Kevin Smith movies.  He just finished directing an episode of “The Flash” & is part way through directing an episode of “Supergirl” in Vancouver.  In the spring he’ll be filming his own movie “Moose Jaws” in Moose Jaw.  He was here since he was scouting locations to film in Moose Jaw.

Sunday we went out for brunch, mom, dad, Mitch, Rachel, Kim, me, & Grandma  & Grandpa.  Quite a few birthdays fall in a 3 week span, better off doing them all at once!

Now I have to get to some laundry!  YAY……………………..said no one ever.

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/100-best-songs-of-the-aughts-20110617

These songs are in the top 100-50 songs.  I disagree with about 90% of this list, but I’m 36 & I listen to mostly 1990s grunge.

CT-SCAN

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Meg Myers”.

 

CAT-Scan early this morning 8:45 am. Two more appointments this year, then I’ll have to see my family doctor for medication refills once or twice next year. Just routine doctor appointments for any cancer patient.

 

Can’t wait for the condo meeting at the end of this month! I’ll be saying “Nay, nay, nay, nay, etc.” many times. I should probably add a “whip” or 2 for good measure!

AC/DC drummer, Phil Rudd, sentenced to 8 months of home detention. That’s it for conspiracy to commit murder & drug possession charges. Does that seem like a weak sentence for being involved with a planned murder to anyone else?

Yeah, ’cause the makeup is the reason for selling multiple albums to fans every where? I’ve never cared for a light show or any other ‘gimmick’ at a concert, I don’t have the ‘gimmick’ at home. Tool is the only band I’ve seen with a really good lighting show, which added to the show!
