I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't find "Bridesmaids'" funny. It got lots of buzz around Oscar time and everyone was talking about how Melissa McCarthy was so funny, but it put me asleep.
Riley was adorable yesterday at Peaceful Bend winery. Continue reading

I just heard on my favorite morning radio station--Thanks to the internet-- that Danny Bonaduce's 88 year old mother has a blog. ( Definitely means I should be able to do better. She said the same thing I say as to why I do prefer a blog over Facebook. More... Continue reading

You are spot on this summer. Avengers was a great movie. Dark Shadows promos just so wrong I won't even watch it when it hits cable much less spend any money on it. Dark Knight looks awesome. I agree Spiderman did not need a reboot, but will probably watch it at some point. Also Snow White and the Huntsman ( Chris Hemsworth after all) and I'm pretty sure my hubby and bro-in-law will want to check out Battleship. Sasha Baron Cohen and Will Ferrell mean DO NOT WATCH. Other films will see how the summer plays out and how my DVD/DVR backlog clears

We have this movie sitting in a pile of VHS tapes. (Yes, We still have a player that works). I've been meaning to watch it all the way through, since I have seen parts of it on TCM. Your review has reminded me that I need watch it. Thanks.

I haven't seen it but it just sounds sad. I'm not a fan of Dr. Pepper. Never really liked the taste. Most of my best friends are men. Matter of fact even though I am married, I find I like talking to the guys at the party more than the ladies. Matter of fact, last party I went too, I got frustrated when a number of the men left and the ladies left got into way too much "girl" talk. And while I like some romantic comedies, I also like action and Science Fiction a lot more. ( just a side note,my husband actually likes a few of the better written romantic comedies as well as the entire Lucas/Spielberg library). I realize age wise, (50) I'm completely out of the demographic that the advertisers care about, but these ad folks really need to get a clue. Of course, they are probably cut from the same cloth as the congress critters, but that is another story.

Wow, 2011 is going fast. Have some pictures to post soon. Number one guy, LesTKtrooper, has been busy with the 501st. I've been busy taking care of my Dad. I really have learned to appreciate the times when He was well and we were a full family with my Mom.... Continue reading

Read this story last year for sure. I am a regular reader but not a regular commenter. But nothing beats home fireworks. My Dad always lit them for us. He wasn't with me this year, he's with my sister recoverying from a broken hip, but I thought of him last night while a bunch of my friends lit them and one of my friends kids learned to light some for the first time. Thanks for sharing. ( and yes, we still get a little subversive pleasure when the bottle rockets shot out of the yard since fireworks are illegal in the St. Louis area too.)

Life being what it was I only just saw X-Men: First Class this weekend. Really liked it, even Kevin Bacon wasn't bad although I agree that he wasn't the main story, so that's probably why it worked. Perfect tie-in to the X universe as presented in the movies. ( since I was introduced via the movies I don't have comic conflicts, however my friends who do know the comics did agree with you that they tied together pretty well) will probably see POTC on video. Green Lantern was good. Just that I liked X-Men better. Harry Potter finale is the must see for my group. The other remakes not so much.

I'm a rabid follower of Peter David's "Fallen Angel" series from IDW. and of course, have been collecting the Guild related comics from Felicia Day. Have been picking up a few of the IDW Star Trek titles. Haven't had the time or the money to spend much time in either the DC or Marvel universe, but may try and pick up a Trade or 2 to catch up this weekend at Planet ComicCon.

You have got me. I know what my readiing tonight will be. I will have to read the story again out of my Grimm Fairy Tales book. It's a great volume of all the original versions, but I have only picked it up sporadically. I definitely need to read it. The Disney movie is beautifully made, but it is defintely makes Snow White a bit of a wimp. She does come off a bit wiser in a bit there done that way in the short lvied sitcom "the Charmings" from the 80's but I defintely would like to see the original Grimm's version done on film. "Ever After" was a very close interpretation of the Cinderella story and one of my favorites even though I have always loved the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical version that ran for many years on CBS.
Fortunately, I haven't seen a godaddy commercial because I don't even watch the commercials at the BIG GAME any more. I know it's this weekend because my friend is opening her house and I will go with my dog to visit, but will probably be in another room. I still have never seen Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction, I was asleep by half time that year so all of this hoopla is wasted on me.

If they do it right, the network executives will cancel it prematurely. Birds of Prey was just getting to the big payoff when it was canceled. (That was must see for both my hubby and myself. Men will watch strong women if it's written right. He also loves Wonder Woman)
I guess I'm hopelessly old. I like the fact that my phone flips open like a Star Trek Communicator and will take a picture of my dog. That's it. I can't text decent on a regular phone pad and won't pay extra for it. I do enjoy my one extra purchase: my ST:TNG theme ringtone. It's the easiest to hear that I've ever had and distinguishes my phone from my hubby's ( who just finally got on the plan)who had to have the Star Wars theme ringtone.

I think a true comedy and the best is The Big Bang Theory. Of course, this seasons follow up (Shat)My Dad Says, is abominable with only 2 exceptions, the night Shatner sang Karaoke, (classic Shata) and last night when I didnn't change the channel fast enough and he did a TJ Hooker over the car hood. Glad you are back. ( I'm using my Typepad sign in, on your News Democrat site, I was KathySTL)

I spent the whole weekend with my dog, Riley. He's a Pekingese. My husband was out of town playing Stormtrooper with the 501st Legion. Best part of the weekend was when Riley joined the Band. (Rock Band 3 for Wii). I can't remember the song now, but just as the track started there was a barking dog and then Riley barked right in tune and time and then waited for a part to do it again ( unfortunately didn't happen, so he curled back up on his pillow again)
