Best Movie I’ve Seen in AgesAugust 17, 2009 in Books, Food and Drink, Movies, Television
After seeing the movie, Julie & Julia this weekend, I have decided that I have a new role model in Julia Child. In fact I’ve been walking around the house saying “Bon Appetit!” in a very high pitched voice followed by a little chortle. Just that in itself seems to elevate my mood. I may even decide to start wearing pearls. The movie was probably the most charming and inspiring piece of film that I have seen in some time. Not to mention, it was laugh out loud funny throughout. Meryl Streep just keeps getting better and better – in fact the entire cast was entirely engaging. (that Amy Adams is a doll!) I will see this one again and again. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, (in my humble opinion) - it’s a must-see!
Gutsy Gal!March 19, 2007 in Movies
I must admit, I'm too chicken to get on a bike. My stomach is up in my throat just at the thought of it. But I am glad to know there are gutsy gals out there like Tilda who make us look good.
Not so daring, Debbie
Wild HogsMarch 12, 2007 in Movies
I just have to tell you, I just got home from seeing the movie "Wild Hogs" with John Travolta, William H. Macy, Martin Lawrence and Tim Allen; and it was pretty hysterical. It was about 4 guys in mid-life crisis who decide to take a road trip on their "hogs" (motorcycles). Of course, they were pathetic and hysterical at the same time. I thought William H. Macy kind of stole the show - but everyone was funny. There was also a "surprise" sequence that played during the ending credits that might have been the funniest part of the movie.
If you're in mid-life age-range - you'll probably like it. Plus, it's a good one for both men and women.
I love sitting in the dark, eating popcorn and watching movies!

Look at me, I'm blogging!November 11, 2006 in Movies, Pets
Hi Friends out there in Blogsville. The first question I have to ask is, "What do I say, how much do I say? What is going to be interesting to you, What will be boring?" For starters, a little about my day today - I worked at home this afternoon. I love everyone I work with - but there is nothing like the peace and quiet of my basement studio. I put slippers and my comfy (albeit, not so attractive) sweats on. I put on an old movie called "The Apartment" with Jack Lemmon and Shirley McLaine to play in the background. I love to play old movies in particular while I do art. Today I'm drawing Santa's. What a life I lead that I can say the main focus of my day is Santa Claus. Christmas is a year ' round activity for me. Luckily, I love Christmas.
I understand part of blogging is sharing your pets. So, let me introduce you to my cat. Her name is Callie. She's not one of those cats that is stand offish and independent. She loves to holler. And when she's not hollering, she's whining. So, I never feel alone in the house when I'm working. Even when she's two floors away, I hear her.
When I spend all day at the drawing table, my favorite form of relief is to bring a glass of wine with me and soak in the tub. If you're like me (getting older by the day!) and your neck and back get sore - try putting Epsom salts in your bath. It's great for your muscles. Of course, the wine really helps too! I'm into Pinot Grigio these days. It's light and doesn't give me a headache like red does sometimes. Ok, enough about wine! (for the moment, anyway)
Ok, well this one was pretty boring....maybe I'll get better at this.
Good news - tomorrow's Friday! Love the weekend.
My best to you,
PS -Let me know if you have any good remedies for sore muscles. I'm always looking for new remedies!
