Just sitting in front of the computer on a darkening Sunday afternoon, “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!” playing in the background. I’m snacking on the last of the Strawberry Pop Tarts, cold and just out of the bag, with peanut butter. I discovered the two go well together the other day when I was eating some peanut butter bread and pop tarts, alternating nibbles. Maggie thinks it’s disgusting, but I don’t see how much difference there is between that and Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jelly Sandwiches. What do you think?
So, I haven’t done much in the way of reading this weekend. In all, I think I’ve read about 80 pages of Emma and 30 or so from Of Bees and Mist. Instead, I’ve been watching movies. Lots of movies. And the whole of Stargate SG-1 season 3. A few that I would absolutely recommend are:
Taken~ Liam Neeson is a retired “problem preventor” (something like a CIA op), who just wants to get to know his daughter, who’s grown up while he’s been away on one mission after another. When she manages to manipulate him (with the help of her mother) into allowing her to go to Paris for the summer, it is against his better judgment. Within hours of arriving, she is taken by human traffickers. He makes the promise to one of them that he will find and kill them, then hops a plane to make good on his word.
Intense action and amazing mental work, Brian, the dad, borders on a superhero. Nothing will stop his mission to rescue his daughter (played by Maggie Grace, who also played Shannon, the girl who slept with her brother, on LOST, but pulls it off surprisingly well… she plays a virgin with values, WOW!) Maggie really liked it, as she loves most father-daughter kinds of shows. Even Netflix knew I’d like it, they guessed I’d give it 4.9 out of 5 stars. I’d give it a 6 or 7 if I could, tbh.
Death at a Funeral~ British humor at it’s best. This movie was one OMG! Gaff after another. Starring Rupert Graves and Alan Tudyk (Wash from Firefly and Watt in A Knight’s Tale), among others, it is just about the best comedy I’ve seen in a long time. Definitely 5 out of 5 stars.
Great line from the movie,”Tea can do many things, Jane, but it can’t bring back the dead.”
And I seriously think Patty Blah-blah-bitch should be banished from the show. I guess she really IS married to her perfect match. Both are rabid thiefs. Bah… and Next to her, Janice should go. Her and her lips creep me out, badly. But I do like Bruddah and Baby Baldwins. Like my siblings and I, when we all get together, the world becomes a lot more fun for everyone. 🙂 Will be watching tomorrow to see if the Bratts will be allowed back in.
Tell me, if you were stuck in the jungle like that, and two of your camp-mates left for two days, then wanted back to come back into the camp to play, would you, who’ve been stuck with mosquitoes, bullet ants, and nothin’ but beans and rice to eat, allow them, who’ve had a couple good nights air-conditioned sleep in a hotel with a shower and room service, back into the camp so they can get a few more minutes of fame and money?
I know I wouldn’t.
