Punishment


So, I was bad today and got punished...

At work we had some left over valentine's day stuff donated from Wal-mart. They are cutesy valentine's that have chocolate hearts in them. Four hearts to be exact. Well, I was CRAVING some chocolate and thought what the heck 4 little pieces won't hurt. As you know I gave up bad things for lent, chocolate being one of them. We'll I'm finishing up my third piece when I realize the fourth is missing. I look around my desk, in the trash, on the floor. I need this fourth chocolate. Three is not enough, but four is perfect. So, I finally give up and think, "hmm whatever" and go on with my business. An hour or so goes by...
I get up to go to the restroom and see the melted chocolate mess in my seat, and can only imagine what my rear end looks like! I start laughing, because what else can you do in a situation like this? So, I look down the hall and make sure everyone is in their office so I can sneak to the bathroom to see the damage to my pants.

It's bad....real bad. I get a paper towel and get it wet then go into the handicap stall and take off the pants and start getting the chocolate off. I think I got it all off for the most part. But I'm staying firmly in my seat till 5 then running to my car in hopes no one sees my wet behind!

Lent

Happy ash Wednesday to one and all

Every year at this time I give up something for Lent. This year I'm giving up food.

Not really all food just everything that is bad for me. No more sweets, pop, fried foods, etc. I'm also going to start a food diary and write everything I eat or drink down. Then a co-worker is going to review it spontaneously to make sure I'm not being naughty. I love food, and this is going to be very difficult for me. But, I have to got to get healthy and lose some weight.


Wish me luck and sorry if I'm grumpy for the next few days!

Toliet Paper


Don't you hate when you walk into a public or even your work restroom and find that a brand new toliet paper is on the roll. I know, most of you are thinking that I should be thankful that there is toliet paper at all in the stall. I am thankful for that, but I'm not thankful for a brand new roll because it is almost darn near impossible to get that cheap toliet paper undone. I usually make a hott mess of it and rip it where its all uneven and destroyed. I have things to do ya know, like check facebook, or perezhilton.com, and pioneer woman dangit. I don't have time to mess with trying to get the toliet paper unrolled! I might just write a letter.

Happy Hump day

Fabulous Wednesday

Here are a few things I reccommend you ch ch check out!


Since it's almost V-day I figured I would post my favorite romantic comedy. Sigh, You've Got Mail. It's the top 5 of my favorite movies. If you haven't watched it, rent it! Or borrow it from me, but you better give it back cause I stinkin adore this movie. It was on Lifetime last night and caught the last 30 minutes, I laughed and cried and said every line. Oh and how can you not love parker posy in this movie!

Favorite scene in the movie:
***Frank: What about you, is there someone else?
Kathleen Kelly: No. No, but... but there's the dream of someone else.

Another good quote:

**Kathleen Kelly: What will NY152 say today I wonder. I turn on my computer. I wait impatiently as it connects. I go online, and my breath catches in my chest until I hear three little words: You've got mail. I hear nothing. Not even a sound on the streets of New York, just the beating of my own heart. I have mail. From you.




Sigh....


Okay on to Music!


Coldplay's Viva La Vida


They just won a ton of grammy's for this albulm. I talked with friends who weren't that impressed with their lastest cd, but I love it, and i'm the one who counts on this blog :) ha


Favorite Songs:


Lost!, Death and all his friends, strawberry swing



Art:




Andy Warhol and his fabulous collection of shoes! I would love to have these in my house, good thing I'm single cause I sure don't think a boy would go for that! This won't be the last time you'll hear me raving about Andy. I had a calendar of his shoes and I'm thinking about taking a few of my favorites and have the pictures of them framed.

Happy hump day! Let me know what you think!

The Wizard of Oz



Hold Toto close to you today, the wicked witch is being a bitch.

Friday, February 6, 2009

Love of my life

Could she be any cuter? Nope don't think she could.
Not only is she super cute, but she is also the kindest and gentle hearted dog around. Paris goes to elementary schools, libraries, kid's homes, elderly homes, and many other places visiting people. She is a therapy dog and brings smiles and joy to young and old. How can you not feel better looking at this face?
Plus, she has a fabulous job of modeling for Paws Around Town, a dog boutique in North Park Mall. If I were a dog I would want to wear what she was wearing!
Happy Friday!

Fabulous Wednesday

Here are a few fabulous things I recommend you check out


Music:
Songs I love from this album:
Cross the Line
This Time
Green Light
Here is Rolling Stone's review of the album: (PS it got 3 1/2 out of 4 stars)

Evolver opens with chirping birds and a woman's contented sigh. It's morning in the boudoir; a young lady is in post-coital repose; soon, a manservant will bring mimosas. Lots of R&B dudes promise opulent nights of ecstasy, but Legend is so classy that these fantasies seem like real journalism. With piano-flecked soul ("This Time"), lite funk ("Green Light") and reggae ("No Other Love"), Evolver's tunes and arrangements are as impeccable as the cut of Legend's suits. (Even his taste in guest rappers — AndrĂ© 3000, Kanye West — is upscale.) And there are a few surprises: "I Love, You Love" (produced by Will.i.am) builds a lush ballad around a guitar lick lifted from a Dire Straits tune. Legend can be goody-goody, but aspirational babymaking music doesn't get more skillful than this.

Movie:This movie got snubbed for awards this year. You will laugh and cry, and cry, and cry some more.
But its a good cry, not an ugly cry.

Below is the rollingstone review:( it recieved 3 1/2 stars as well. What can I say, I have great taste)

Clint Eastwood has hinted that his role as bigoted Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski — a gun-toting widower living in Detroit near the struggling Ford auto plant and even nearer to the Asian immigrants crowding him out of his run-down, racially mixed hood — may be his last role as an actor. Eastwood, 78, has two Oscars for directing Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby, and two nominations for starring in them. But an Oscar for acting? Not yet. Get busy, Academy.
I don't think Eastwood will ever turn down a juicy role. But Gran Torino, named after the 1972 car that Walt garages and polishes like a symbol of his idealized past, is a humdinger of a valedictory. Directed by Eastwood from a script by newcomer Nick Schenk, Gran Torino is Eastwood's hell-raising salute to every hardass he's ever played. Cranky Walt often communicates in a growl that sounds like a demon in need of an exorcist (wait till you hear Eastwood rasp a few bars of the film's memorable title song). Walt squints at the Hmong family next door, especially Thao (Bee Vang), a teen with a rustler's eye on the Torino. Thao's smart-mouth sister, Sue (the wonderful Ahney Her), can defrost Walt with a beer and food that isn't his usual beef jerky, but only Walt's dog, Daisy, dares to get too close. Cocking his rifle when gangbangers intrude on his territory, Walt snarls, "Get. Off. My. Lawn." Terrific stuff. And it gets better when Walt confronts some hoods playing grabass with Sue: "Ever notice how you come across somebody once in a while that you shouldn't have messed with? That's me."
And that "me" isn't just Walt. It's the Man With No Name taking aim in those spaghetti Westerns. It's Dirty Harry Callahan asking, "Do you feel lucky, punk?" It's William Munny, from Unforgiven, digging deep to note, "It's a hell of a thing, killing a man. You take away all he's got and all he's ever gonna have." It's even Frankie Dunn, the fight manager from Million Dollar Baby, who knows "tough ain't enough."
Tough has never been enough for Eastwood. It's a credit to the film's twist ending that Walt exorcises his demons without easy violence or bogus redemption. A lifetime in movies runs through this prime vintage Eastwood performance. You can't take your eyes off him. The no-frills, no-bull Gran Torino made my day.

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat

You can see this piece at the Chicago Art Institute. Its my favorite piece of art. Seurat used tiny dots (the technique is called pointillism) to create a fabulous picture. I wonder how many dots are on this piece and how long it took him to create this? I'm not putting a review on this one because if you can't see its fabulousity yourself...well then your at the wrong blog.
