Do you ever get that feeling?

Have you ever been watching something on your phone, or other device in public and felt like you weren't the only one? It seems that 45% of us have noticed someone 'backseat bingeing', and some were actually embarrassed about what they were watching. I don't know about you, but I'm not going to watch anything in public that would make me feel embarrassed. Especially since in a recent survey conducted by SurveyMonkey, it was discovered that 27% of the 'snoopers' have actually interrupted the viewer to start a conversation about it! This cracks me up.  When I travel I like…

Empty Nest Bingeing

Up until a few weeks ago, there would probably have been great discussion about what show we should watch during the infrequent times we'd watch tv as a family.

It can be offering the last piece of cake, the larger portion of the bed, or watching with them as the same struggling hockey team loses once again. We do things for the other person that we don't really want to because we love them. cheating Then there are the TV show commitments - in the 'olden days' you had to wait to watch a show weekly and record it if someone couldn't be there at that time or get the show when it came out a year later on DVD or…

Happy Birthday Month Canada! Did you know Swedish Fish are a Canadian thing? Just like buttertarts, Halls throat lozenges, Nanaimo bars and ketchup chips.  In honour of this country's birthday, I have been thinking of things that are, well, Canadian. Recently I was visiting a friend at her shop in Port Hope, Ontario, (My Sister's Closet Boutique) and I chanced upon a full blown American invasion. It turns out the town was temporarily converted into a film set of the fictional town of Derry, Maine for the remake of Stephen King's It. Did you read that book or see the original…
