.. although I tweeted when Twitter first got big I dropped out before it got HUGE.

Because really… I don’t want to know what someone is doing every second of the day and I highly doubted that anyone wanted to know what I was doing every second of the day.

But being on the road to wellness meant that I was REALLY bored today so I got Twittered again.

I know.. I KNOW.. but trust me, I’ll get bored with it again so just deal with it for awhile.

If you want to follow .. be my guest @livingme101

If you don’t.. believe me.. I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND!!

Ok.. this is an old one. 2003, I think. I remember seeing it when it first came out and remembered really liking it but when I saw it listed On Demand, I couldn’t really remember what it was about.


If you haven’t already seen it.. do so.. NOW.

Especially if you have an active brain and like being intellectually stimulated.

In fact, it was SO good, that I even forgot all about Kate Winslet’s abnormally large, dark, certainly non-English aereolae.

Kevin Spacey plays one of those cocky college professors that received both career status and alcoholism early. Laura Linney :: who is really so under-rated as an actress :: plays his dowdy collegue. Both are anti death penalty which yknow.. in TEXAS .. is almost like publically stating that you hate football.. so when Laura Linney’s character turns up raped and murdered, Kevin Spacey is tried.. found guilty.. and is about to be executed.

How’s that for irony.

Anyway.. Kate Winslet plays a reporter who Kevin Spacey grants his first.. and last .. interview.

This is the kind of movie that you have to watch until the very end. And if you think you have it all figured out.. well.. guess what? You don’t.

Have fun with this one kids… both my thumbs are up.

So I know I’ve been a little out of the loop because of the pig virus and everything but I have to get something off my chest about this whole Tiger Wood’s scandal.

Like.. who really cares?

He may have cheated on his wife with one or more skanks.. may have taken drugs to have sex with one or more skanks.. may have sent suggestive or down right dirty text messages…

Ok.. and SO? Unless your his WIFE :: and really, as freakin’ hot as she is I would suspect that you’d be worried about his mental state instead of his fidelity :: is it really any of our business?

When the “accident” first happened and there were second by second updates on whether or not the he would talk to police and what REALLY happened, I said to Chief that as long as he didn’t kill anyone and had more then enough money to replace the freakin’ fire hydrant this wasn’t “news”.

And when the whole sorid tale was being told, I refused to partake. I just feel like whatever is going on between him and his wife and their relationship isn’t anyone’s business.

And yet, everyone wants to make it there business because people may like to build you up but they just LOVE to tear you down. And that isn’t fair.

No one knows what goes on behind closed doors or what evolves in people’s relationships. Who knows why people make the decisions that they do…¬† as long as it doesn’t have a direct impact on you, you shouldn’t care about it.

I think if more people minded their OWN business instead of other’s then we’d all be in a better spot.

And about this whole “.. well, he’s a public figure” argument. So what. So he’s a highly paid, multi-endorsed golf player. That means he has to live a spotless life?

Did you ever think that having the pressure to live a spotless life will drive someone to make poor decisions?

I just think it’s unfair.. and I certainly would love to see something actually NEWS WORTHY on the news.

Catholic Girls Start Much Too Late…

Posted: December 5, 2009 in Awards

That’s a line from Billy Joel’s Only The Good Die Young song … and since yes, I started life as a Catholic Girl I can admit that I DID start much too late but thanks to my Blogger Bud and fellow Award Slut Gary, I’m making up for lost time!

So I’m tickled pink and jazzing over the NEWEST pastie in my collection of awards:

I will truly cherish this one because it says “BEST” and if there is ONE thing that I always strive to be it’s the best at whatever I do..

It’s one of the things that made Chief fall in love with me .. that and.. well.. hmmm.. I might have to save the for TMI Thursday because that would just be giving away a little bit too much.

It’s also nice to know that my sluttiness is not only recognized but commended.

So I raise my glass to Gary.

And in the spirit of sluttiness, I’m passing the torch to:

Welcome to the ranks, kids! And remember.. there’s enough corners for us all!!

.. so this is the kind of movie that SO isn’t a “family” film. In fact, I’m kinda glad that I watched it by myself because there were plenty of WTF! and WHA??? moments even for an Indie flick.

It’s hella long (over 2 hours) and even though the central story is about Kate Winslet :: a personal fave :: and the hottie known as Patrick Wilson as parents involved in their own empty marriages who wind up hooking up.. there are SO many under current story lines.

Like the sex offender who moves back in with his mother only to be harassed by an ex-cop who was thrown off the force for accidentally killing a 13 year old.

Apparently, everyone in this quiet little Connecticut town has a dirty little secret .. which contributes to the WTF!! moments. Let’s just say there’s a lot of shock n’ awe. Even for me.

I’m not going to say I absolutely LOVED it .. I mean, it was good and I would recommend watching it.. if you were in the time and space to do so. It’s definitely NOT a light movie.

Here are just some random, personal thoughts though:

Jennifer Connelly, as Patrick Wilson’s bread-winning, testicle stealing wife looks as hot as ever FROM THE NECK DOWN. Girlfriend got some serious aging going on in the face.

Kate Winslet has some of the biggest, darkest areolae I’ve seen in my life! And she’s ENGLISH!! Sorry to generalize but I wouldn’t think that an English woman’s areolae would be THAT big and THAT dark!

The Sex Offender was played by Jackie Earle Haley. Jackie Earle Haley being MY VERY FIRST CRUSH back when he played in the Bad News Bears EONS ago. I had NO idea it was him until the credits rolled and if I wasn’t feeling so weak from pig virus, I would have high tailed my ass to the bathroom and vomited. That’s how grossed out I was.

It’s currently on Cinemax On Demand so if you have the opportunity, give it a go and let me know what you think…
