I Wanna be in Pictures

oday we ripped off a man namedMax Urai of the site Anomalous Materials. He states that he spotted this meme over at Cinematic Paradox. But, it was probably stolen there as well. So, of course, that will be as far as we go. Tracing back our theft's thieves might take some time. Take the time to comment on other player's posts. It's a great way to make new friends!

Sunday Stealing: The Fifteen Movie Questions Meme

Cheers to all of us thieves!

1. Movie you love with a passion. Holy Crap! So so so many.....but I think I feel most passionate about "Breakfast at Tiffany's"

2. Movie you vow to never watch. "Titanic" which is ironic because I adore Kate Winslett

3. Movie that literally left you speechless. "Requiem for a Dream" then I was nauseous and then depressed

4. Movie you always recommend. "Pi" it's frantic, engaging and thought provoking

5. Actor/actress you always watch, no matter how crappy the movie. Kate Winslett....barring "Titanic" of course

6. Actor/actress you don’t get the appeal for. Angelina Jolie.....seriously, why does everyone adore her?

7. Actor/actress, living or dead, you’d love to meet. Peter Sellers: witty, sexy and dead

8. Sexiest actor/actress you’ve seen. (Picture required!)

9. Dream cast. For what? Depends on the project....Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, Kate Winslett, Clive Owen and Zach Galifianakis would be an interesting and odd combination

10. Favorite actor pairing. Kate Winslett and Jim Carey, chemistry and hotness

11. Favorite movie setting. London

12. Favorite decade for movies. I could never pick one

13. Chick flick or action movie? Action....I'm only picking this as I only have two choices

14. Hero, villain or anti-hero? Anti-hero

15. Black and white or color? Depends

Taster's Choice

I am not a coffee drinker, I've never liked the taste. I prefer my tea to be iced, hot drinks make me thirstier for some reason. I will, however, sell my mother into slavery for a good cup of hot chocolate.

You can imagine my surprise and delight when I found out Dunkin Donuts was selling frozen hot chocolate this summer. It's delicious, basically a shake w/ ice. I always opt for the small w/out wHipped cream. Yes, that is a bit kooky but I am still calorie conscious.

Yesterday, I had some time to kill before my reiki session so I partook of some Starbucks. My favourite thing in the whole wide world is the truly awesome Vivanno. In layman's terms, it's a flavoured smoothie w/ banana & ice. It's like a taste party in mouth!!!

I am now placing these two tasty treats in a head to head 50 Kinds of Awesome competition.
Taste: Vivanno gets a slight edge because of the banana
Convenience: DD, only because they have a strong on the Capital District
Calories: Vivanno, beats the frozen hot chocolate by almost 100 calories

The winner is the chocolate Vivanno!! But don't take my word for it, decide for yrselves.....freedom of choice is what you want.

Good Enough to Eat

In the summer, SB & I are rarely at home on the weekends. (which has resulted in a messy mess of our house!)

Anyways, as a traveling fool I have my handy dandy necessity bag for my razor, deodorant, etc. The problem is the soap, SB has sensitive skin & those soap container things are ridiculous. So, I use the top o' the line liquid stuff The Body Shop. However, I got an awesome X-Mas present from SB's aunt & I might I have to switch it up. C.O. Bigelow Lemon Body Wash. It's the tits, ladies & gents. It leaves my skin soft and fresh, the smell is killer diller, just like lemon scones & not drying in the least. I was freaked out because I couldn't figure out there was no suds. Duh! Non-foaming soap.

Highly recommend it, go out & get some today.

Mr. Kamikaze

So, I was tooling around Schenectady & I saw a happy group of middle school kids at the playground. Then I felt a great sadness! Those kids don't know a thing about Devo. How could someone skip rope and not being singing "Beautiful World" at the top of their lungs?

Sigh :-( So glad I'm not a kid!

Hall o' Famer

It's no secret that summer is my favourite season, the hotter the better I say. I also say the wetter the better but that's a story for another time.

Anyway, SB and I are lucky enough to live close enough to some amazing campgrounds on the banks of cool and refreshing lakes. This past weekend we shot up to Glimmerglass in Cooperstown.

Last year we stayed at the rustic sites, roomy area but port-a-potties and 10,000 miles away from the showers. This year we stayed at a site a few feet from the facilities but smaller sites right on top of each other. I preferred having neighbors.

We spent all morning at the beach, swimming & reading. Not at the same time of course! Then lunch in Cooperstown @ Alex & Ika. I had the open faced chorizo sandwich & mixed green salad. I'm such a sucker for a home made vinaigrette. SB had a hanger steak and fingerling potatoes. WOWIE ZOWIE! I cannot recommend this place enough, peeps. And the sangria! Oh the sangria! They make it w/ port, I could have had 5 of those suckers.

Then more fire. Music. Uno. Laughter.

Weenie Butt

As some of you may know, Independence Day = Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest. Joey Chestnut snarfed down 62 dogs in 10 minutes. It was freaking impressive!

However, I am fucking pissed because the lady gurgitators were segregated in their own mini contest...."The Pink Belt". Fucking sexist bullshit! Those chicks can throw down w/ the best of men! Especially my favorite competitor, Sonya "Black Widow" Thomas. If she had been allowed in the real contest, she would have come in third.

Neil states “Here’s a meme I found on a friend’s private LiveJournal entry (so I can’t link it to you) – it’s a bit bizarre but it’s mostly full of questions I’ve never answered before so hopefully it’ll be interesting.” So do we.

Hitching Post

No one ever prepares you for the cold feet. I wanted to run away, elope, fast forward through time.

100 people were going to be staring at me. I would cry in public. My guests would be miserable at the reception. Possibly a fight would break out.

None of this happened. There was a small snafu w/ the entrance music & my mother tied the wedding bands too tightly to the pillow but other than that it was a joyous day.

I smiled, I beamed. I oozed happiness from every pore. We stood in front of the JP holding hands & I thought, "I get to fucking marry the best person I've ever known! How fucking great is that?"

Marriage has also been very profitable for us as well. With all the gift cards and discounts, we got the top o' the line Dyson for $95. Plus, we have a small joint savings account.

Honeymoon next year to Costa Rica!
