Movie Review - Pan's Labryinth

Wow. This movie was dark, depressing, gory, creepy and shocking...and I loved it.

The plot was intense, the music was moving, the characters were complicated and well developed. Really, it was a great film. It was just really depressing.

Have you seen this movie? What did you think?

Happy Birthday Chesty!

Happy 28th Bday to my dear friend Chesty Chong.

Love ya!

Wild Stallyns

My dream reminded me of my favorite section of Bill & Ted's when they introduce their historical figures to Bill's hot mom and make up names for them. SO HILARIOUS!

Entire script found here.

(San Dimas - Present Day)
(The booth lands in Bill's back yard while Missy is watering. The booth has landed on top of the water hose so the water's slowed to a trickle, Missy turns around to see what's going on and sees the booth.)
Billy: Whoa! Who's the Senorita? She's cute.
Ted: It's his mom, dude.
Billy: Oh.
(They open the doors and step out.)
Missy: Hi guys.
Bill: Hi Missy…I mean Mom.
Ted: Uh, Mrs. Preston we'd like you to meet some of our friends.
(As each of the guys/girl gets out of the booth they shake hands with Missy.)
Bill: Yeah, this is uh Dave Beethoven, and Maxine of Arc, Herman the Kid.
Ted: Bob Genghis Khan, Socrates Johnson, Dennis Freud and, uh, Abraham Lincoln.

Missy: Well it's nice to meet all of you. There are soda's in the fridge.
Bill: Mom, can you give us a ride someplace.
Missy: Bill, I'm not taking you anywhere until you do your chores.


Last night I had a very memorable dream that I would like to share:

I was at the mall and it was closing so I was trying to hurry and get the rock outta there. I walked by that damn cookie place Great American Cookie I always walk by but this time there was no way I could resist. So, I got a double doozie (two m&m cookies with frosting in the middle), a cookie that looked like Big Bird, a cookie that looked like Oscar the Grouch, and then they gave me a bonus "Ice Cream Basket." This thing was like the baskets you get burgers in (or popcorn if you are at Frogtown Johnnies), and it was filled with ice cream and butterfinger pieces. Basically, it was my favorite type of ice cream concoction and it was literally a mountain of ice cream rivaling the ice cream creation Napoleon devoured in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

So, I am on my way out of the mall with my cookies and my ice cream basket when some little sh$% comes running by me and knocks it out of my hand. SADNESS! Then the escalator grabs my favorite white sweatshirt and sucks it under the belt and stops the whole thing. I get ejected from the mall without my favorite sweatshirt and the ice cream basket is all over the floor.

Depressing dream right? Or maybe I need therapy. Honk if you love ice cream.

Being sick when it is hot outside is not natural.

Does anyone else turn into a baby when they are sick?
I think I do and I want everyone to feel bad for me.

Can tonsils grow back?

I loved this story....

Real-life mermaid as double amputee gets a fish's tail

Double amputee Nadya Vessey will soon be able to swim like a mermaid with a specially-made tail that will let her propel herself through the water.

The keen swimmer is to be fitted with the "mermaid-style" tail made by the same special effects team behind blockbuster Lord of the Rings and King Kong.

Nadya was born with a condition that meant her legs would never develop properly, but despite having her first leg amputated at the age of seven has has continued swimming throughout her life.

An artist's impression of the new mermaid tail, which will even have scales for added authenticity

The tail will be moulded on to a pair of wetsuit shorts to make it easy to put on and take off. Nadya says it will allow her to propel herself through the water with an undulating movement as if she was a mermaid.

"I'm thinking I'll power on a bit with it, so that will be great." she told New Zealand's Sunday Star Times. Nadya says she's even thinking of completing the swimming section of a triathlon using her new tail.

Work on the new tail will begin at the start of next year and Nadya has told the special effects team that she wants the finished tail to be both "beautiful and practical".

"I began to feel a bit embarrassed about it. But then everybody else got so excited so I thought, 'Oh, I'll just go with it and see what happens'."

"So I really have no idea what to expect but it's going to be fun.”

Despite being a double amputee Nadya remains a keen swimmer

I don't know how my camera works

Here are two pictures of which the only variable is flash.
You would think that the picture with the flash comes out better, but
really, the one without the flash is a better picture.

What do you think? Which picture is better?

An Ode to Sarah.....

I was in Chicago all weekend for a rip roarin' good time. On my way out, I had to take a photo of my favorite building. Remember when Sarah almost fell off it in Adventures in Babysitting? What a great movie!

Cold Stone Creamery

Oh we are in trouble. For the first time ever, I visited Cold Stone Creamery yesterday. Now I see what all the hype is about. My choice was French Toast ice cream (limited time only) in a waffle cone. Holy Crap. It was simply amazing. To add to my wonder of this lovely place, when I got to the register, they had these cute little black wrought iron swirly things in which to place your cone so you can pay. Man, those ice cream moguls thought of everything.

Morbid....but interesting

I heard this news story on the Bob & Tom show this morning. This really bothered me but intrigued me at the same time. I have been thinking about it all morning.

A man in a suburb of Michigan built his own guillotine in a wooded area to commit suicide. He succeeded.

Full story here. Very, very disturbing.

Go Get Yourself Some Cheap Sunglasses....

ZZ Top played an awesome concert at the SeaGate Centre
last night. I was able to obtain a Media pass that got me, not kidding,
up against the stage (in front of the barricade up against the stage)
to take pictures. I took these pics myself (along side someone from the Blade and someone with the tour) with my little Sony Cybershot (hahah) .
Click on the pictures to make them bigger.

Car Detailing

Over the summer my car got a little messy:
  • Going to the Lake
  • Road trips
  • Little cousins in the car
  • Picking up drunk people (and obligatory Taco Bell drive through)

How did my car did this dirty?

I wanted to get my car detailed and having never done it before I went to Minuteman Car Wash on Monroe to price it out. The nice (seriously, he was SO NICE!) guy informed me that they were running a special that would cost me only around $90.00 to get my car detailed. What? Is it really that much????

So I did it myself:
  • $1 quarters with the vacuum (5 minutes worth)
  • $2 for Armor All cleaner for dash and steering wheel and side panels
  • $1 for glass cleaner
  • $6 for Car Wash
  • $1 air freshener
SO, I saved $80.00 (granted they could have done a better job) and my car looks great. Now I vow, "I will NEVER let my car get that dirty AGAIN!"

How many times have you said that? Don't you love having a really clean car?

Baba Ghannouj

Let's talk baba ghannouj. I think I like it better than I like hummos (hummus, or hummous, it is spelled so many different ways). They are basically the same thing but baba has eggplant as its base whereas hummos has chickpeas (garbanzos) as its main ingredient.

Have you had it? Do you like it?

Vince Vaughn's nickname in Wedding Crashers was Baba Ghannouj. Man, I love that dude.

Denial, denial, denial....

Here is the headline to the article:
Woman lived with dead aunt for year
WHAT?!?!?! Ok, I know that sometimes I have neglected to take the trash
out and the next week it is getting really bad, but SERIOUSLY? That is
crazy. I like how the article says that the niece is now under going psychiatric examination. Do ya think so?

Is anyone out there a wrestling fan? Me neither...but on Sunday
WWE Smackdown was in Toledo. I got to escort (not like that)
Matt Hardy, one of the wrestlers, to his meet and greet at Tony Packo's downtown.
Here are some pics:

Good clean fun

Yesterday at the lake we had some good old fashioned fun. Water balloon launches, sailboating, and then the rope swing that is famous on ClarkLake. The rope swing is this trapeze-like contraption that was built for Raft-o-Rama that had actually has a scaffold platform and a rope with a ski handle for the trapese. Indredible. See pictures below.
