Just some scattered thoughts and tidbits for this last Sunday night in March. Hugs & Thanks to Dee of D's Designs for the snag of Keanu. This is my last entry for my Eye Candy Week (lol..girls no crying; I may resurrect it again). Sorry Vin, you have been replaced. It's not that I don't like the Eye Candy but, as many of you know, I get bored quickly with my sidebars and feel the need to change them quite often. I'm trying to think of my next theme.
I was going to do another quiz but I never seem to have time to do them plus my typical rambling. So, I'll throw in a couple of the quiz questions plus ramble on. I'm very good at killing two, three, four birds with one stone.
My favorite movies; 5 I was supposed to pick, but I can't pick only 5. My all time favorite: Devil's Advocate with Al Pacino and, of course, Keanu Reeves. Why? I can't answer that. It fasinates me. I usually don't like movies like that at all. I avoid them. This one was sort of like good defeating evil. Other movies: Shawshank Redemption; love anything Morgan Freeman is in; Dirty Dancing, my girls and I could watch this all the time; Christmas Vacation...lol...cracks me up totally. Sometimes I call my journal The Griswald's because of all the flashing animation. Ok, maybe I can do five....this is a real oldie which most have never heard of....Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard....love it and could watch it all the time also.
Favorite bands: All R&B/blues...Love BB King; Marvin Gaye is a classic in my book. A sad life but a classic. Anybody remember when Marvin sang with Tammy. I grew up to Motown. The original diva's...Patti Labelle & Chaka Khan. The new stuff...Outkast. And BTW: I loved the movie Four Brothers. Andre from Outkast was in that one. Black Eyed Peas. Ok...throw in Tony Bennett. My favorite CD is Pilgrim by Eric Clapton which is all blues. I'm on my third CD. I've totally worn out the last two.
Favorite restaurants or was it food or something like that...Chinese. There's a restaurant in Pittsburgh called Dingbats that has an open faced steak sandwich called the twenty dollar steak sandwich that has everything but the kitchen sink in it. Actually, besides liver, there is not much I won't eat. If I don't have to cook, I'll eat it. I love Lidia's, authentic Italian cuisine.
Do I believe in horoscopes...Nope. I know I'm a Scorpio but cmon, how can every Scorpio in the world have the same predictions on any given day...doesn't make sense.
Gossip...would I rather reveal it or hear it? I'd rather hear it...lol I can't resist. But, I don't reveal it because I'm not much of a gossiper; just a listener.
Pet Peeves: cell phone calls on the bus at 6 am in the morning when I'm trying to sleep. Who are these people talking to?
People who drive two miles an hour in front of me.
People talking on cell phones while doing bank transactions, paying for groceries, etc. Hey, I can't live without my cell phone but sheesh.......
So, I mixed together a little bit of two quizzes....got these from Hadon and Essex Debbie. Pretty clever of me, I'd say.
And to answer the big question of last night....yes, it was my BF calling me on my cell phone. He was at his new apt. moving things. He and Joey moved most of the things today and will finish Wed. He is moving Wed. so the managers can paint his old apt. What is that again, Debbie? A posh gaff? He is now going to live in a posh gaff. Happy Mum's Day to our UK friends. Today is Mother's Day in England.
Ok, my last thought...AOL blows! It was really acting up today. I couldn't get into my file manager, I couldn't leave journal entries, pictures all over J-land that were previously there had the lovely red "x" and so on and so forth. I'm speeding through this entry to get it saved so I don't totally blow a gasket.
I lied...one more thing. The closet is cleaned. YEAH. I threw a lot of things away but I did find the pair of earrings my BF bought me a couple of years ago. I knew they were somewhere in the house. They were in an old purse. I put them in there when he gave me new ones for my birthday last year. I'm going to wear them now and see if he notices. LOL...I bet he will. He is very observant.
And, that is all, folks. I promise. Have a great evening! And, you lucky dogs who are also on spring break like your kids are, nanny nanny boo boo.....have a great week and enjoy.
