Pitching the Plantagenets

Friday, September 28th, 2007

It’s time we play my favorite game: FANTASY CASTING COUCH! That’s the game where I think up the PERFECT, PERFECT casts for movies either really in production or else ideas for movies that I just dream up. Really, these things just pop into my head while I’m doing dishes, I have no idea why. Anyway, […]

Fall Into Reading!

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

LOL! Isn’t that a cheese-tastic slogan? But it was a real promo from the American Library Association back in the day. Gawd, never, and I mean NEVER, let librarians create p.r. campaigns! Anyway…now that BW is back in classes, I have more time to do some reading. Here’s what I’ve been up to: Just Finished: […]

Plague Fangirl

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

BW and Donna The Nicknameless are both taking an epidemiology course in their grad studies this term. Ha! I don’t need no steenkin’ classes…I scored really high on the Name That Disease quiz without ever having taken a legit epidemiology class in my life. I’ve always had a ‘thing’ for the study of diseases…I’ve been […]

Hey, I finally got off my ass and posted pics of our 100% done kitchen! Here they are. (Actually, we had a ‘Break In the New Kitchen’ cocktail party on Friday, and I didn’t want anyone to cheat and look at pictures beforehand. Heh.)

A Man for all Seasons

Wednesday, September 19th, 2007

Jeremy Irons’ birthday today! Jeremy is 59, but still working steadily. Not really steadily enough for me, though. The pic above is from the last good thing I saw him in, Elizabeth I, which was a made-for-tv miniseries. Last good real movie I saw him in was Casanova. So he does about a movie per […]

Mano a Mano

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

Here’s a funny little article I found about Russell Crowe vs. Clive Owen at the box office last weekend. The writer hands the fight to Rusty. Apt, since I really did have every intention of seeing Shoot ‘Em Up this week, but I saw 3:10 to Yuma Saturday and then I just never quite got […]

Friday, September 7th, 2007

Traveling back to the US now, in one of the few states I would deign to live in in this overflowing clogged toilet we call a country. Maine! I took a quiz once that claimed to be able to advise you on the best area for you to live based upon your preferences of weather, […]

Pants

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

An ode to pants. I miss pants. I can’t remember the last time I wore real, normal-length, non-shorts pants.  My jeans look forlornly at me from the closet like abandoned friends. Summer needs to die.
