12 Years Ago Today...

I was transformed into untold bliss...ahem...well...I was married. I have to say that it has not all been perfect, but I woke up today truly glad to celebrate with my honey. I made us eggs benedict for breakfast - and Jim went to get me chocolate donuts. MMMMMM. We have also been planning our next Disneyland trip! Its a ways out because we have had a difficult financial year, but we are all excited to have something to look forward to. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of my blog, I have installed a count-down. Hehe.

Here we are August 27th, 1994



















My bachelorette party the Wednesday before...













Eggs benedict this morning, August 27th, 2006


I love you, Jim, how about another 12 years? :)

A new MEME

Got this from Whirled Peas: List 10 statistically improbable things I've done (or things I've done that most people haven't.)

1. I've hit 2 deer and a dog with my car. All different times. All traumatic.
2. I had graduated from a four-year college, been through the police academy, been a cop and gotten married all by the time I was 22.
3. I've jumped out of a perfectly good airplane 7 times.
4. I've had to have surgery to get a kidney stone out.
5. I've never broken a bone. (Just a small fracture in my wrist)- and I'm incredibly clumsy.
6. I can eat an entire large pizza by myself just outside of 10 minutes.
7. I've never been outside the country, and my dad worked for United Airlines.
8. I've never had a root canal or a crown - and I've only had 2 very small cavities in my life - and I'm 34.
9. I couldn't burp until I was 25. (Not good, anyway)
10. I can vomit at any time, on queue.

I would say the same thing...

Go Sam Jackson!
I even combed my hair today BEFORE WORK

I know you're thinking "really?", but if you compare this photo to the one I posted the other day...you can see the difference. Now I just need to do something about those dark circles under my eyes. Like go to Tahiti for a month.


Hell is Frozen and Pigs are Flying...

I woke up in a good mood. I KNOW. That, in and of itself is a miracle, but the fact that it is ALSO Monday, well, that's SOMETHING!

The weekend was nothing special - just cleaned the house. Scrubbed the bathroom, cleaned the kitchen floor, washed my throw-rugs. Not too exciting. Jim mowed and watered the grass and washed my car.

I got to work today, said good morning to everyone and started working RIGHT AWAY. I don't know what is going on. Its a little scary. Hehe.

Blah. Just Blah.

You may be wondering what the vulgar picture is all about. Well, I'll tell you. Planter's no longer makes CHEEZ BALLS. Fuckers.

Just a couple of things...

"Lucky Louie" - the new sitcom-type series on HBO is FREAKING HILARIOUS. It is like a shock-value sitcom. They swear a lot and I got to see a full-on penis. My kind of show.

I just received my new RAZR cell phone (for free!) and I'm loving it. I have stepped into the 21st century (my old phone was like 5 years old) where you can do more than just 'talk' on your phone. I am snapping pictures all over the place. This could be dangerous. I'm taking the doggies to the vet today for their annual shots/exams - maybe I'll take a picture of Louie freaking out when the nurse puts the thermometer up his butt. :-D

SWEEEEET

Loved it!! 4 paws up! The Descent rocked. One of the best horror movies I've seen in awhile. Lots of good stuff. My step son had both of his ears plugged (which means its scary) and Jim kept saying things like "Whoa!" "Shit!" "Damn!" during the movie - which TOTALLY cracked me up, number one, and number two is pretty uncommon for him. I walked out of the theatre wanting to see it again. I'm not going to give anything away because the less you know about the movie, the better the experience it will be for you. Go see it!

Here is where my maturity level shines

Since NO ONE seems to want to talk about horror movies...I joined the fangoria.com message boards so that I can discuss cannibalism and throat-slicing there. So NYAH!

My Anticipation is Growing...

I seriously can't find a bad review of this movie. (The Descent) The ones I have found that seem negative are from people who haven't even SEEN the film yet - or who don't like horror movies to begin with; and even those reviews have been hard to find. Horror movies are notorious for having mixed reviews. Usually, your hard-core horror fans are disappointed and your teenagers are all wigged out over nothing because they are stupid. If the hard-core fans like a film, then no one else does. Well, not this film. EVERYONE seems to dig it! I guess it came out in the UK last year and received rave reviews there, too. Here is an exerpt I just found on Horrorwatch:

Afraid of the dark? You will be. A group of female friends led by Juno (Natalie Mendoza) encounter bloodthirsty creatures when they get trapped in a mountain cave due to an avalanche. Worst of all, their friendships sour and they discover their real fear is from each other. This has to be one of the best films of this year. This movie accomplishes what The Cave didn't. Full of terrifying suspense, ample blood flow, awesome looking creatures, action packed sequences, and all without the use of CGI. The atmosphere was totally creepy the whole way through. At times, I actually think the hairs on the back of my neck were standing up. More than once I jumped and almost fell over. Every time somebody rounded a corner, I found myself holding my breath. This is as creepy as creepy gets. The acting was superb. The actresses really draw you in to their world. They make you feel almost as if you are right there with them. Never have I seen such powerful performances in a low budget film. The "crawlers" add perfectly to the creepiness. They are plain ferocious and can move with unbelievable speed. They also like to rip their prey apart as blood goes everywhere. I highly, highly recommend this film to any and every horror fan. This is one movie not to be missed. This film puts you in a downward spiral full of fear. Good luck watching this alone in the dark. Hands down, I give this a 10 out of 10.
