Private Lives of Pippa Lee

My sister brought a book called "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee" when we went to Cuba. (Let's not get into my book choices for that trip- very non-beachy, heavy reads for sure!)
Anyways, here is the trailer:
starring Blake Lively as the young Pippa. But Keanu, really? I'm not fully impressed by the trailer, but if we can actually find a local theatre playing it, we'll see it.

P.S. Miss everyone in Vic!


Recording a Spanish dialogue is nerve-wracking. Especially when the mic pics up your nervous breathing, and you know the TA/prof will hear it.

The upside is, I'm done. Now I can enjoy the weekend in BC (well, except when I'm ON the plane, doing homework.) Fingers crossed standby is not full!

Cool: volunteering for the Salvation Army Christmas kettles in Milton. I may not have money, but I have time.

This is hilarious, if you read all the way to the bottom!

No-life update.

I am working on draft for my oral test (there is no good way to word that. I hope my blog readers don't have their minds in the gutter!) for Spanish. I need to speak for a minimum of 2 minutes and 45 seconds (max 3 mins)... and it is NOT easy coming up with that much Spanish to speak! The question I chose to answer was about my courses this semester. I am needing a lot of fluff to fill the time!

Just re-watched the promo for Nine. It looks good, but I have a hard time taking Kate Hudson seriously in that role... anyone else?

Olympic Torch is Coming to Milton

Is it lame that I want to take the day off work to watch?

On Saturday, December 19, 2009, the Town of Milton will proudly welcome the Olympic Torch. Residents will have a chance to experience the Olympic Flame in person as it passes through our town and makes its way towards the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Miltonians can participate in the lead-up to the Winter Games by joining special community celebrations and activities for the visit of the Olympic Torch, which will include a free pancake breakfast being organized by the Milton Canada Day Committee and free recreational skating at certain times that day. For security reasons, the detailed Olympic Flame route will only be publicized two weeks before its arrival in Milton. Watch local newspapers and this page for further details on the route, timing and associated events.

A great Christmas!

Just a quick update:
Spent the weekend having a family Christmas in Ottawa. (Seriously). My cousin, who lives in Yellowknife, was visiting and it was the first time we've all been together in years! It was an awesome weekend, mostly spent hibernating with the family.

I "stole" this picture from my aunt- we stopped at my Aunt Melissa & Uncle Colin's new apartment in Kingston- it's a 200 year old haunted building- in fact the starting point for ghost tours, which i will definitely be embarking on when i visit. We stopped by on our way home, and had dinner at one of the THREE pubs on the ground floor. Such a cozy place, dark wood and thick glass windows... it would be the perfect place for a pint in a snowstorm!!

Life has been crazy as expected with work. I have to admit I've been slacking on school. I actually have the whole weekend off (and nowhere to go!) so I will definitely be catching up before Annie and I visit Victoria in two weeks!

What She Wore- Paish's bday edition

I can't remember who, but someone blogged about winter shorts a while back... that was my inspiration!

Cardi: mark. ,tank: Target, shorts: Garage (and my sister), tights: Kmart, boots: American Eagle (by Payless)


As spotted on Style Quotient, I am coveting these Rachel Comey for UO oxfords. They are on sale online right now... should I make the splurge? Could I pull them off with grey dress pants for my interview in January?

It's time.

The red cup comes out tomorrow, along with the holiday lattes - gingerbread, eggnog and peppermint mocha (my fave!). I'll have to go for one last pumpkin latte which is presumably on the way out (when the syrup runs out, anyways!)

Also, splurged on my first pair of full-length lulu's (only own capris!) seeing as I now work at a yoga studio. The things that excite me.
