Sweet and Sour Valentine

I did an interview tonight with Anastacia Hopkins, the president of the Bay Theatre group here in Stephenville.

In the coming weeks, Feb 12 to be exact, the Bay Theatre will be putting on a new show titled “A Sweet and Sour Valentine”.

“The show is not just meant for the lovey-dovey couples, it’s really one for everybody,” said Hopkins.

“We have a kind of grumpy host- who’s Cupid, Cupid is really not on the pro side of love right now so he’s going to add some comedic elements to it,

“We’re going to have a bunch of Musicians … Wade Pinhorn, Tanya Alexander, Ryan Hopkins, Jamie Walsh, Kimberly Nippard and Gary Gilliam, ” said Hopkins.

The event also promises poetry, comedic scenes, and an extended intermission for some sweets and treats.

Tickets are available now at the Stephenville Arts and Culture Centre box office. Tickets are $15.00, or $13.00 for seniors and students. The show starts at 8pm!

Come on get happy

Occasionally I’ll flip through the enormity of pictures on my external hard drive and find a picture that makes me go “ohhhh, why didn’t I notice this one before?”

This picture says that, and more.

I was feeling particularly shitty today but I decided to say the two words that rarely dominate my mind.. “fuck it.” Whatever will be, will be and whatever doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger and all of those other interdependent euphemisms.

This picture, I think, signifies the true freedom that you can find within yourself when you forgive yourself.

Believe it or not, the problems that we face with people in our lives are not always about that person, it’s a problem with ourselves that we haven’t been able to face.

It’s not you, it’s me, ‘truf.

Whatever is rotting your day right now, just remember to smile, everything happens for a reason. ( I actually believe that one.)

It doesn’t hurt to hug someone either.
