The Bucket List has two of my favorite actors, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. If you’ve ever lost someone to a horrible cancer, this movie will really touch you. Two men make a Bucket List of things they MUST do before they die from their disease. It’s a humor filled adventure that will also make you cry and think of the things in your life you want to do. I find it sad that Sean Hayes is getting such small roles in films. He has great timing and is very funny. 4/5 Beans!
What’s on your Bucket List? Things you want to do in life. I’ll have to think about mine and post later.
I worked the last four nights and came home and completely crashed today. Normally I sleep from 8-12 or 1PM, but today I was zonked out until the phone rang at 4PM. Michael had taken the boys out on the boat with his friends (MondayGuyDay). I walked down the dock and picked up the boys and The Dude said he had a surprize for me. Ok, what is it? He gets on his bike and takes off riding. With no training wheels. WAHHHHHHHHHH! My baby is growing up!
I thought they weren’t suppose to learn to ride bikes until like 16 years old! And what is up with The Baby wearing underwear and wanting to go potty? In THE TOILET? We get rid of his crib and high chair and he thinks he’s all grown up?
I hate when they do something grown up, it makes me want a another baby to get back what I’ve lost. And I get sad and depressed. Then I think that if I got pregnant RIGHT NOW, then I’d be due March 23, 2009. And that also means that it wouldn’t be until August 2014 that I would be done with daycare (the baby would be in kindergarten) and that it wouldn’t be until MAY 2027 until he/she would graduate and hopefully move out to college. But at that time, I would be 50! Yes! FIFTY! FIF.TY.
Of course this is SOO much better than the 47 I’ll be when The Baby gradutes. Yeah, so much better.
Ahhh, nature, fresh air, outdoors, not shaving your armpits for a week. Camping. So relaxing. Yeah, right! Getting the freaking tents up, unloading the vehicles, not letting your kid burn, drown, get eating by the world’s largest mosquitoes, or eat raw food is NOT relaxing. But it’s fun, and memorable.
This year, we are going to the same place, LAKE OUACHITA about a 30 minue drive from home (yeah REAL far huh??) but you’d never it know it. It’s a 40,000 acre lake, the biggest in the state (more room for your kid to get lost).
We rough it. Tents. No running water, shower or toilet (ok, NONE within a 6.79 minute walking distance) and no electricity. We love it! Last year some dumbass redneck had a huge old generator running at the site ALL. NIGHT. LONG. Fucktard.
So last year it was our family, with some drop in friend (Flip and Em, Crystal and Ashley). We’ll be there for 5 days, 4 nights. This year the crew has expanded. P and M and their son from Louisiana (hubbie’s friend from childhood), J and J and her son from TexASS (dh’s friend from college), D (dh’s friend from work), oh and J’s boss, girlyfriend and kids. WOW! So I *think* we’ll be ending up with SIX tents! AcK!
Here’s my packing/grocery list:
tent, hammer, mallet, rope, tarp, grill, charcoal, lighter fluid, air mattress (?), coolers, chairs, table (?)
blankets, pillows, towels, clothes/swimwear, shoes, personal crap (sunblock, diapers, wipes etc)
outdoor play (noodles, kickboards, shovels, pails, motor boats, wagon, bikes, etc)
foil, ziplocks, plates, plasticwear, cups, papertowels, cooking utensils, frying pan, trash bags, cutting board, dish soap, washclothes, broom, clorox wipes
beer (lots), cokes, capri sun, water, HB buns, dawg buns, bread, HB, dawgs, PB, jelly, ham, mustard, ketchup, mayo, relish, cheese (sliced, shredded, block), potatoes, onions, peppers, smore’s shit, ribs, steak, poptarts, seasoning (cajun, garlic, s&p) butter, chips, sunflower seeds, salsa, tomato, salad, carrot stix, celery stix, veggie dip, dressing, eggs, apples, oranges, bacon
I figure we’ll need 2 beer coolers (one for campsites and one for boat), one coke/water/capri sun cooler, one for just ice, and 4 for food (if not more).
I know there is more that I need, but am now brain fried.
Oh, and I take my RN boards when I come back. BLECH
A great place to share stories, bitch, fight, debate, talk about your kids, get good deals, read about BHB drama (and other boards), gossip about celebs and your favorite shows and movies, get recipes and shopping tips. So much more is in store! Be sure to register, stop and say HI in the Lobby! And be sure to get in and active, or you’ll get the boot!
The Man was plid aying with one of his many trusty Buzz Lightyear toys. Husband person and I were laying on our bed, and the Man was on the floor. The Man says,
“We need to get to action! HELP! Mayonnaise! Mayonnaise! We need help!”
Yes, another chick flick!!! Husband person is out on the lake, so I can watch MY shows! 27 Dresses is your typical romance comedy. Katherine Heigl (which is her actual birth name ~ refreshing) is the damsel in love with the man she cannot have, or at least won’t go for. Through a silly bunch of embarrassing mishaps and tough decisions, she finally ends up with her man. I’ve never watched Grey’s Anatomy, but I do like her in this and Knocked Up, very cute! Malin Akerman, who seem sit be new to the Hollywood entertainment scene is very adorable, comes off as a mix of Carrie Underwood and Mischa Barton. No, not Mischa, more Kate Hudson, definitely Kate. She has two love interests in the movie: Kevin, played by James Marsden and George, played by Edward Burns. Edward Burns is very familiar, but I can’t place him. I’ve seen The Holiday, but nothing else kicks in. James Marsden has been in many television shows, but has come out in recent years with some great movies (Hairspray, Enchanted, and Superman Returns). His smile is a charmer! It’s a good, but typical chick flick, earning 3/5 beans!
The movies I’m reviewing have been out for a while, obviously a while enough to make it to DVD. I was pondering when the last time I went to a movie on “opening” weekend. I know many of you went to Sex In And The City opening weekend, how fun! BTW, I have not seen it, lol, it’s not on DVD!
But as I sit and think, I think the last opening show I went to was Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones, in 2002!
So for all of you out there, who see movies waaaaaaaaaaaayyyy after the fact, as I do, then I hope you enjoy this!
Ok, I’ve never been to Hollywood, much less a movie premier. BUT, I have a new discovery. The RedBox. The RedBox is a movie rental machine located in very convenient places. The two I visit are in Wal*Mart and by McDonalds. For $1 (YES ONE FREAKING BUCK) you can insert a debit or credit card and rent a movie. For each additional night you keep it (because we all know it’s nearly IMPOSSIBLE to take a shit without being interrupted by kids, much less sit for a 2.5 hour movie), it’s a buck more. After 25 nights (and $25) it’s yours (not recommended). From what I read these machines are located in very convient locations (fast food joints, gas stations, even hospitals). If you rent from one, you can return it at any Redbox location. I’ve always gotten a movie that I wanted, it’s never been out. You can also go to the site and pre-rent your movies before you get there! A definite FIVE BEANER (see below).
Movies are being rated from 1-5 Beans, with 5 being the best and 1, I wouldn’t let my worse enemy watch it, well maybe I would (more defined ratings to come later, the kids want to go to the RedBox)!
3:10 to Yuma is a traditional story of good guy tries to do what’s right, gets burned, tries to be a hero, tempted with evil, good overcomes. Christian Bale isn’t too bad to look at, neither is Russell Crowe. What I loved about this is how the father-son relationship changes within the story. If you like Tombstone, Young Guns and the other great 1980-1990s westerns, you’ll like this! 3/5 BEANS.
