another school year is upon us… well us students. no more sitting around, lounging in the sun… doing nothing, being bored… it was awesome. but with this wretchedness comes my all-time favourite season and that is: good TV season! yay!! so far i’ve only seen Melrose Place and 90210. and i must say this: Ashlee Simpson cannot act for shit. and it is very evident given the "role" they gave her. she just pops up every so often with an awkward one-liner then disappears. its annoying and ruins the flowing continuity. 90210 was much better, but maybe i am just more accustomed to it? Shenae Grimes as Annie seems to be heading down the same path as her previous character on Degrassi, boring. sadly there won’t be any Breaking Bad or United States of Tara this year. but to make up for it, i am giving Weeds another chance, i stopped watching after the second last episode of season 4 (last season here in Canada, where we are behind) but have since decided to try again, mostly just because they keep playing the theme song on the radio in a commercial.
with this also comes the annual TIFF. which for non-movie goers like me means: freebies abound! why today alone i raked in: free Diet Coke (in a fancy glass bottle i might add), free Reese candy bar, free shampoo (twice, to be fair its been a free shampoo summer, i am set until next year) and free Fuze juice (again like the shampoo, it was all summer long). i haven’t seen any celebrities, which is no surprise given that i barely grazed past Yorkville today in a desperate attempt to get on the subway before the mass hoards of rushhour came out (i made it home safely, no drowning in the crowds)
tomorrow i will venture out in search of more freebies, while on my way to a freebie (free movie screening at Yonge & Dundas AMC at 6pm). but so far you know this: free Diet Coke & free Fuze juice (at various parts of the city) and free John Frieda Frizz-Ease shampoo+conditioner at Yonge & Dundas Sqaure (outside H&M).
