Lovely Parting Gifts

Friday, October 23rd, 2009

So.  Agent Asian’s wedding is tomorrow.  Sweet E almighty, but I cannot wait for Sunday morning to dawn. Afterward, myself and this blog will be taking a slight vacation.  I planned to take the 26th off anyway to complete my recuperation from the wedding, then I was gonna take the 30th off for my birthday, […]

The Feast of St. Bela

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

I know…posting YouTube videos for content is lazy, lazy, lazy.  But I’m busy.  But I can’t let Bela’s birthday go unmentioned.  Besides, if I haven’t convinced you over the years to worship St. Bela, I never will.  (HEATHEN!!!) So here is Bauhaus.  Worship them, too.  This is amazing.  How did I not know about this […]

This is the End

Monday, October 19th, 2009

We are in the final week leading up to Agent Asian’s wedding!  Can you stand it?  I don’t think I seriously thought I’d live to see it.  Course, there is a week left, maybe I shouldn’t speak so soon.  Anyway, Saturday night was AA’s bachelorette party, which consisted of dinner, going to the Pens/Tampa Bay […]

Shatner for the Masses

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

I have to share with you this song that I’ve been jamming to for the past two weeks. It’s William Shatner.  Because not only is The Shat a master thespian, sensei of the martial arts, expert equestrian, poet, prophet, and cornerstone of our collective cultural mythos… he is ALSO an artiste.  A master of the […]

Birthday Goodness

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Yay!! Sid, MA, and Sweet Baby J for my birthday!  Or at least, the day after. Woke up this morning to a message in the inbox from Erika (one of the Other Bridesmaids in Asian’s wedding AND a Penguins full-season ticket holder.)  She said that excess tickets for the October games were on sale to […]

Decent weekend for once.  Nothing special, just nice.  Did a little used clothing shopping (futile), puttered around the house, made pancakes, baked the traditional apple bread that we eat every Thanksgiving morning and put it in the freezer, and went to see Zombieland. My opinion is that it doesn’t merit a real review.    Certainly […]

A Beautiul Sight for a Friday

Friday, October 9th, 2009

Now this is what I like to see, especially so early in the season. Jordan Staal reacts to the news that his jersey will appear onscreen in upcoming Russell Crowe thriller.  Philthadelphia Flyers lie around and cry.

I was a human prop

A report from my day on the set of The Next 3 Days with Russell Crowe. Warning:  Long!  If you are lazy let me skip to your burnings questions.  YES, Rusty was near me…as close as 3 feet at one point!  NO, I did not speak to him nor get a pic or autograph. (Extras […]

Hello there. New in town?

Monday, October 5th, 2009

GUESS WHAT, Y’all! I am signed up to be an EXTRA in the Russell flick for Tuesday & Wednesday!!  Though I may very well die of excitement within the first hour or so, depending on how close we are to Rusty. My luck, he won’t even be in the scenes we’re filming….it will be second […]
