Last Weekend in June

First, I had to laugh at this Onion article–how perfect that it actually says it’s from Niskayuna, NY!  Between this and that news brief they did on period movies, it’s as if they can peer into my Very Soul.

Here’s what’s going on this weekend:

  1. Michelle

    So, we were out driving around tonight and as I was about to turn off of 236 onto Fellows Rd in Clifton Park and I noticed a huge screen out on a lawn in front of the Halfmoon Town Hall. Lots of people watching some movie (basket ball, lots of singing – I have no idea what movie it was).

    My very first thought was: How did I not know about this?! I read the blog religiously!! I’m a facebook follower! I have it bookmarked and have passed it along to friends looking for things to do.

    As soon as I got home, I double checked to see if I had missed it, or somehow passed it by because it was actually a movie I wasn’t interested in seeing or something. But, alas, no.

    No idea how you find out about the stuff you find out about, but I guess this was one well kept secret!

  2. Michelle–Ack, I hate missing stuff! But when people tell me about the stuff I miss, at least I acquire it for later. I found the link–looks like there’s another movie on 7/9.

    Kelly–No problem!
