Holiday Movie Fest

Posted on

Wow.  I haven’t posted in days.  I kept meaning to and getting sidetracked.  Lots of personal distractions.  My mom is having outpatient surgery tomorrow.  Not a big thing but a nuisance, so we’ve been getting ready for that.  She has to stay off her foot for a month, so she’s staying with us (we have […]

Sunday Summary and #ROW80 Update

Posted on

Allergy season has kicked back in full force. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, and it’s got stuff blooming again.  Consequently, I’ve got a river o’ sludge running down the back of my throat and no voice.  It doesn’t actually hurt today, but I don’t think I’ll be doing a lot of talking.  Lots of […]

The 10 Most Mockable Moments in Snow White and The Huntsman

Posted on

So yesterday hubs and I went to see Snow White and the Huntsman.  Given the stars in the cast, I was expecting everybody to be pretty good except Kristen Stewart, whom I have yet to see playing someone other than Bella Swan, no matter who she’s actually been cast as.  At the end, the best we […]

Our plans for a nice relaxing weekend, so didn’t happen.  Without getting into total nasty TMI, the short version is that we discovered about 3 am Saturday morning that Daisy has a tapeworm and probably some stress colitis.  Because a spinal stroke that led to partial paralysis and a UTI isn’t enough for this poor […]

I have officially lost my mind.  I went running this morning.  On purpose.  2.25 miles, of which 1 was actually run.  Okay, jogged.  I haven’t really don’t this in a long time.  Still.  I’m contemplating doing this a few times a week on my non weight-lifting days, just to shake it up. It’s been a […]

Monday Miscellany

Today’s stop on the Red blog tour is at Book Lover’s Inc.  I’m being interviewed!  And check out this lovely review of Red from Sidhe Vicious Reviews. We’re getting hammered by Tropical Depression Lee today.  No cookouts for us!  But it’s bringing with it cooler temperatures and some much needed rain.  My poor hubs has […]

Sick Day Period (of the Historical Variety) Dramas

Posted on

I’m not sure what it is about sick days that always make me crave period historical dramas, preferably British ones.  I’m home sick with a stomach thing today (okay, yesterday, as I am writing this on Monday) and immersing myself in North and South.  Ah, Richard Armitage.  Love him.  My love for this mini-series comes […]

It’s A Classic For A Reason…Right?

Posted on

First, for those of you who missed the update yesterday, foot is not broken and pups not sick.  In even better news, insurance is going to pay for half of my roof.  And now on to my post. Over the last couple of decades, Hollywood has displayed a really disturbing trend.  Despite the myriad of […]

Movie Madness

Posted on

It was a movie weekend for us–an event that’s become increasingly rare now that we have a Bluray player and decent Netflix subscription (and enough to keep us busy until stuff comes out that way). Friday night we hit up Wolverine.  I have to say, as always, Hugh Jackman absolutely owns this role.  He’s always […]
