Title needed and Movie Review: One Week

I was going to post the half of my SPN/HP crossover that I have written, but then I realized that I don't have a title...any suggestions? Something witty, but not lame.

I saw One Week this evening. It's a Canadian movie about a dude (played by Joshua Jackson) whose reaction to being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer is to take off for a week or so to drive from Toronto to Vancouver Island. It's a road-trip movie Canadian-style (ie: with the depressing premise, because Canadian movies like to be depressing). That being said, it's a great film. It's not actually about death or cancer or anything depressing, it's about the way we live our lives.

It's also like a little love-letter to Canada. Even though he doesn't go east, he meets some Newfoundlanders in Parry Sound which totally make up for it. It was a really good movie. Like I said, it's not really about death, it's about how we Canadians live in a beautiful country, and we can all get a little lost sometimes in it.

Anyway, the movie, along with a long discussion with my the friend that I saw it with, all lead me to think that moving to Vancouver really is the right thing for me to do. I just don't fit into this gov't town very well. My friend herself is moving to Winnipeg in the fall for the same reason.

So, now I just have to figure out how to get a job in Vancouver.
