It’s almost here…. set your PVR’s

Bored one night Hubby and I scrolled through the lame movies channels on our TV for something to watch.   We came across Shark Night…. what a waste of time… It’s a movie about 7 college students who head over to one of the girl’s family vacation home on a private lake.  One by one they begin to be attacked by sharks… when they think they have found help…. their help turns out to be a bunch of sick men who have put the sharks in the lake and attached cameras to them…. then they take people out on a boat and lure the sharks…. Obviously it’s bloody and cheesy and lame but they do it because of……. SHARK WEEK!  The sick and twisted fellas feel that so many people tuned in to watch Shark Week and left many viewers wanting to see the real juicy murderous shark videos…. so   they    make    them !!!

Bah…. terrible show.  I don’t care if I ruined the movie for you it’s crap….. but it got me freaked for SHARK WEEK and it starts in just a few days.  🙂

SHARK WEEK 2012

Begins August 12th on the Discovery Channel….

“So let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel”

Shark Week for those that don’t know, as per Wikipedia, is a week-long series of feature television programs dedicated to sharks. Shark Week is held annually, normally running in July or August. Shark Week was developed to help the average person have a greater respect for sharks. Shark Week is now broadcast in over 72 countries.

This year is the 25th anniversary of Shark Week.  It’s first year was in 1988.

I’m not the only one excited for Shark Week… (I’m also terrified of it as well!)  Check out some of the cool “Sharkie” stuff I found on the web…

To honor the upcoming 25th anniversary, The Discovery Communications headquarters in Silver Spring, MD has added giant
inflatable shark to it’s building. The giant shark, named Chompie, is 446 feet long from his nose.. er.. snout… whatever it is… to his tailfin. It took 6.65 miles of fabric to make.

And if you’re having a shark week party!  Perhaps you might want to make these little cuties…

CARIBBEAN DAYS FESTIVAL 2012

YES!  Caribbean Days Festival is soon approaching.

Caribbean Days is an event put on by the Trinidad & Tobago Cultural Society of BC every July.  It’s held in North Vancouver, BC at Waterfront Park.  It’s a weekend of culture, colour, costume and fun!

My girlfriend knows that I’m a huge fan of Jamaican music, reggae, and all Caribbean music actually.  I just ♥ it.  I put on my smallest shorts and crank it up when I’m cleaning house!  Dance and sing and love, oh and clean…. all at the same time.  Of course hubby doesn’t mind it.  He does think I’m crazy sometimes but aren’t we all just a little bit?  She told me about this annual festival last year and unfortunately I was unable to go.  She made sure to text me and leave me voicemails from the party tho….. ♥ her!

This year the party is on Saturday, July 28th and Sunday, July 29th.  There is also a Caribbean Days Boat Cruise on Sunday July 22nd on board the M.V. Britannia, boarding at the foot of Denman.  Tickets are $30 and I believe they can be purchased here.

Basically what this means is, I am pumped up to get my booty bouncin to some great tunes, be part of that awesome chill vibe, eat incredible food and meet alot of people.  Most of all, I’ll be rockin it with my GalPal…  and Hubby if he’s down.  I’m definitely wanting to hit up that boat cruise!  I ♥ boat cruises!!

Maybe I’ll see you there?  The website for all the facts and details can be found here.
