3:10 to Yuma

Another Western, another day. I think I just finished a class at school that fits the theme of this movie perfectly, ethics and values. Would you do something good- just because? Love that Christian Bale but ya probably should've taken the thousand dollars and ran like hell. I give 3:10 to Yuma 3 out of 5 bibles.

Unborn in the USA

I was unprepared for this movie. I knew it was a documentary about the pro-life stance on abortion, I did NOT know they use graphic images to persuade people to their side. This group of people compares the images and how they show them to the crucifixion of Christ. Interesting.
I will not rate this movie.

I'm fairly certain I will be the last person on this planet to read these books, but I've been busy with school and work and a baby and a husband and seriously people get off my back already!!! Anyway- I'm excited because the copy I ordered just arrived in the mail and if I had ADHD like everyone else I know I could start it right away. Unfortunately I have to finish the book I'm reading before I can begin another one....(Which by the way is The 13th Tale) Also: today is the last day of the semester and this morning we took McKenzie to storybook time at the local library. God Bless You Crazy Library Lady!!

Death Slide

Amy, Will, McKenzie, & I went to the park. I unfortunately did not get a good picture of the death slide but seriously, why haven't more kids been killed? Of course besides the swings- McKenzie loved death slide and we went on it over and over. Don't worry it's like 35 degrees outside and we biked there! We're DESPERATE for summer or something like it.

Why is it that every great movie comes from a great book, and now I have to read it? Crap. I cried at the end, I'm still not sure if it is because of the movie or the underlying theme we can all relate to regarding forgiveness. Sometimes no matter what you do or the reasons you do things you can never achieve "atonement" for them. Perhaps the atonement that Briony received was her eventual death, maybe not. Keira Knightley has and always will remind me of my cousin Jessica, very pretty. I think the guy in this plays Jane Austen's lover in Becoming Jane, I like him who ever he is....I give Atonement 4 out of 5 typewriters.

Grasshopper Cake Recipe

The Grasshopper Cake Recipe I made for Bunco can be found here.

The Office -Chair

The Office is better than:
1. The soupy part of a chocolate oreo shake (from Dairy Keen, no other substitutions allowed)
2. Clean sheet day
3. Any other show on Television
4. Dare I say it...No
5. The cold side of the pillow

P.S. I totally thought he was going to do it!!!!!!

Need I Say More?

Alas, bunco was at my house last night!! I hope everyone had a good time- I know I did! Thank you to Amylee and Terra for the continual ringing in my ears via their "subtle" hints that they or someone at their table had bunco. Congratulations to Amber on getting out of the house only four days after giving birth (who looked great by the way). I did nothing for at least a week following the birth of McKenzie for fear of my vagina falling out. You C-Section people have no clue what I'm talking about. See ya next month girls!!

The Happening...

I'm ashamed. It has taken me this long to realize the new M. Night Shyamalan trailer is out. How embarrasing, because I'm a huge fan. Signs is my favorite. I hate Mark Wahlberg.

No Country for Old Men

For once in my life I don't know what to say. I LOVED this movie!! The scene between the sheriff (Tommy Lee Jones) and Ellis (Barry Corbin) in the kitchen, is the best movie scene in existence. I respect everyone out there who refrain from watching rated "R" movies (and I know more than one person) but this movie will never be the same when it is edited for content. I give No County for Old Men five out of five "lucky" quarters. P.S. The quarters do have a say!

Retarded (we call it "exceptional")

Well, I've done it. I've found what I've been looking for: the new video at the bottom of my blog.

P.S. Does anyone know for a fact that wearing a bra to bed is a health risk? I'm serious about this topic and would appreciate any additional information.

We Own the Night

This is rated R for a reason. I love Joaquin Phoenix, don't worry Heath knows. The only movie I didn't like him in was Gladiator, bad character. Anyway- this movie was ok. These are the only reasons to see it: 1.about cops 2.mr. phoenix was in it & 3.the ending wasn't crappy. I give We Own the Night two out of five well ya-know....
