Last night’s screening

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

I am rushing off to a meeting but I just wanted to chime in and say THANK YOU to the Ottawa bloggin’ ladies who answered the call and came out to the special screening of One Week last night. Great time, great film.

Thank YOU, Andrea, for the passes. That movie definitely sticks with you, doesn’t it?

Movies seldom provide enough social time, and I’d meant to compliment your necklace and Jen’s bag (corduroy? linen? I didn’t get a close enough look, but it was wonderful). You Westboro ladies get all the nice stuff. :)

Ditto on thanking you! It was a lovely evening; I very much enjoyed the movie, and Erica and I have been discussing it on and off all day. It was also nice to see the face behind the blog and some of the other posters!

I look forward to reading more of your blog :)

Awesome movie, loved the soundtrack & the scenery. Also loved the ‘non-Hollywood’ feel of it. Thanks for taking us Andrea. It was great to meet all you bloggy-ladies. Am also happy to have found the Apples & Oranges site because of last – great stuff there Lara!

I agree, not enough social time! Fun was had nonetheless and I’ll be buying that soundtrack as soon as I can. I’ve been walking around marvelling at Gord Downie, he was hot!

Now, did you all recognize Gordo straight away?? I did and turned to my (much younger) Sister and said, “Hey it’s Gordo” and she looked at me like I was a piece of Salmon. I do love the Hip.

And the movie did stick with me, it was so hard for me not to write about it the next day. Quite powerful and so well done for a Canadian flick. Made me want to get out on my (long ago sold) motorcycle and hit the road.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
