Morning Person

Like most people, Lisa Dutton has a Monday to Friday job. The big dif? Her weekdays begin at 3:30 a.m. and her work hours are spent, for the most part, on camera. Perhaps as you're getting ready in the morning, you spend some time with her, too. As Global Morning's anchor here in Saskatoon, Lisa delivers the news and the local 4-1-1 with down-to-earth sincerity and a quirky, quick sense of humour that defies the early hours. You guys, she makes 6 a.m. look glamorous and fun. I had to know: IS IT? I mean, what else would make someone choose that nutty schedule? But then again, how could Lisa feel zero jealousy seeing her husband and their two little boys happily sawing logs as she tiptoes off to work? And what ridiculous bedtime would she have to set to get enough REM in? The whole thing fascinated me. So I asked Lisa if my blogmate Jocelyn and I could shadow her for a morning (Joc specializes in documentary-style captures) and because she's the best sport ever, she said yes. And that is how we ended up in Lisa Dutton's bedroom at a time I'd previously considered 'night'.

Everyone has different taste in entertainment. I'm not into Breaking Bad or House of Cards or anything dark or gory (as excellent as some of these award-winning series may be). I appreciate intelligent humour, beautiful visuals and complex characters, I like to think, I like to feel...deeply, and I love to learn and grow. If you can relate to that at all you might be interested in what I've been watching lately (mostly on Netflix)!
