Watching theatre at the movies is great fun, and I did just that on this Saturday past. I had a ticket for a really nice neighbourhood cinema, where I saw the 50th anniversary production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. National Theatre Live films several plays per year, showing them in cinemas across the world while the show is still … Continue reading Theatre at the Movies – Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

I am shocked and horrified by the devastating attack on the patrons at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. My heart goes out to those who were there in the middle of the terror, both those who made it out and those who did not. The families and loved ones of those victims have my … Continue reading Monday

It's been a lot of fun answering Guylty's Richard Armitage fandom challenge, and my previous week's responses are here.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
As a teenager, I loved the song, "Hooked on a Feeling". So when the trailer for the original Guardians of the Galaxy came out, the nostalgia factor and the humour shown in the clips made me really excited to go see it. But I didn't like the movie. I found it pretty pointless. (OK, it's a … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

As she said in the comments in her April … Continue reading Could This Be Richard Armitage’s Next Audiobook?
Bling for Fitness and Fangirling
I like to tell myself that the reason I'm not wearing my Fitbit and trying to up my level of physical activity is because of the way the bracelet looks. A bit like I've been let out of prison and this is the monitoring bracelet, right? So, I decided to invest in a more blingy … Continue reading Bling for Fitness and Fangirling
RA Challenge – Week 3
Continuing on from here with Guylty's Richard Armitage fandom challenge, here are my answers to questions #15 to #21: #15 A Character Everybody Else Loves that I Hate: I can't really say that I hate any of the characters that I've seen RA play. (Although the morals of Paul Andrews in Between the Sheets are deplorable.) I think … Continue reading RA Challenge – Week 3

In the spirit of Mental Health Week, I'd like to share a couple of interesting books on the subject of women and mental health/mental illness. The first week in May is earmarked by the Canadian Mental Health Association to raise awareness of mental illness, offer practical ways to maintain and improve mental health, and support recovery from mental … Continue reading Books and Mental Health Week
