The Big Year

So, what is a girl to do during a week of sub-zero temperatures and constant snow?

Movies. Lots of movies. And you know which one was my (surprising) favorite?
Yep. A movie about competitive bird watching. The friend I watched the movie with was not as enthralled, asking "Who would waste that much money on a hobby where you cant win any money?"

Yeah, now you get the connection, right?

In a nutshell, the movie is about three men who are all trying to have a "Big Year" - in which one evidently competes to have spotted the highest number of birds in North America, for no prize money- and how this quest for more birds affects their lives.

I loved it. A movie about an expensive, solitary hobby that forges friendships and ruins relationships? It could not be more directly relate-able to my life if it tried!

Unless someone wants to buy the movie rights to this blog....
No takers?

Guess I'll just have to work for a living, like everyone else.

Snow flakes!
