500 Days of Summer

This non traditional love story was one of the best original movies I’ve seen in a long time.  FINALLY a fun and romantic story told in a clever and entertaining way!  GO WATCH IT!! I LOVED IT!!  Here’s a summary of the film from All Movie Guide:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel star in director Mark Weber’s wry, non-linear romantic comedy about a man who falls head over heels for a woman who doesn’t believe in love. Mark (Gordon Levitt) is an aspiring architect who currently earns his living as a greeting card writer. Upon encountering his boss’ beautiful new secretary Summer (Deschanel), Mark discovers that the pair have plenty in common despite the fact that she’s seemingly out of his league; for starters, they both love The Smiths, and they’re both fans of surrealist artist Magritte. Before long Mark is smitten. All he can think about is Summer. Mark believes deeply in the concept of soul mates, and he’s finally found his. Unfortunately for Mark, Summer sees true love as the stuff of fairy tales, and isn’t looking for romance. Undaunted and undeterred by his breezy lover’s casual stance on relationships, Mark summons all of his might and courage to pursue Summer and convince her that their love is real. ~ Jason Buchanan

Spaghetti TOXINS!

Man!  I have a problem!  I sleep walk!  I really do.  It sucks.  I have been taking my MC so serious, BUT last night I ended up with spaghetti in my mouth!!  Seriously!  I sleptwalked into the kitchen, grabbed a bowl of 4 day old spaghetti, and was in the middle of a bite when Miss Tickles licked my foot.  I woke up and said to myself, “What the hell am I doing?!”  At sunrise, I felt like a failure.  But it’s a new day.  The only thing I could do was start fresh!

Sauna

This morning, I went straight to the sauna to eliminate some spaghetti toxins.  LOL.  Sweating is one of the best ways to detox your body.  I read that if you’re feeling aches or soreness while on the Master Cleanse it’s because of the heavy amounts of waste being released into your body as the cleansing process takes place.  Your body will naturally dispose of this waste, but you can help it almong by sweating some of that waste out in the sauna.  The sauna is also great for your complextion. 😉

This is an iPhone pix of me this morning in the sauna at about 156 degrees.  I have a towel on because I thought that was standard for saunas.  I say “I thought” because some other lady joined me and you’ll never guess what she was wearing.  Actually, why don’t you take a guess… We’ll see if you’re right.

Well, I’ll talk to you later.  I’m headed down to the Hardware store so that I can install a deadbolt on my fridge.

The Master Cleanse: Day 3 with a Thai Massage

Day 2 was VERY difficult.  I’m glad I stayed strong because I woke up this morning feeling great!  I’m definitely having my moments of fatigue but after a couple swigs, my energy is back up.

I also decided to get a massage today.  I read getting a massage during the MC will help to release waste that’s trapped deep inside your body tissues.  Instead of a traditional Swedish massage, I tried out a Thai Massage for the first time.  Let me tell you, this was the BEST massage I’ve had in a very long time.  I wasn’t allowed to take any photos inside, but I was able to sneak a shot of the paperwork they had me fill out.

Notice how I marked an X on my butt …lol… I don’t like my butt massaged!! LMAO… of course, they completely ignored me, but the way they massaged my rump felt nice so I’ll let it pass this time. 😛

Squeezing my Lemons


Day 1 on The Master Cleanse wasn’t too bad.  I did have my moments of hunger pains and unusual thoughts of meal combinations.  It’s 9:08 p.m… . squeezing my lemons for tomorrow.

The Master Cleanse: Day 1

I’m sure most of you have heard of The Master Cleanse.  I tried this detox a few months ago.  Unfortunately, I only made it 4 1/2 days.  I’ve decided to try it again.  This time around, my mind is set on making it the entire 10 days so that I can receive the full benefits of this cleanse.  The Master Cleanse claims to be a way to cleanse the body of toxins and remove the cravings of toxic items.  I’ve been doing a lot of research on the MC.  I will be sure to blog daily and share with you more information and secrets about this detox.  Here goes … I am officially marking Day 1 on The Master Cleanse … . Thursday, September 17th at 5:14 A.M.   😀  Wish me luck!!

Kanye West Apology on Jay Leno

Do you feel he was sincere?

Glowing Red Pup

Scientists in South Korea created the world’s first transgenic female beagle dog carrying fluorescent genes that make it glow red under ultraviolet light.  The cloned beagle was named Ruppy (short for Ruby Puppy).

“What’s significant in this work are not the dogs expressing red colors but that we planted genes into them. The glowing dogs show it is possible to successfully insert genes with a specific trait, which could lead to implanting other, non-fluorescent genes that could help treat specific diseases, like Parkinson’s,” said Professor Byeong-Chun Lee.

MTV Video Music Awards

I’m sure most of you have seen or heard of Kanye West’s classless hijack at the VMA’s.  He stole Taylor Swift’s moment when she won the award for the Best Female Video.  Here’s the video in case you missed it.

Beyonce made things right at the end of the evening, when she won the Video of the Year.  Instead of giving her own speech, she talked about winning her first VMA as part of Destiny’s Child.  She said, quote, “I remember how excited I was.  I’d like Taylor to come out and have her moment.”  Here’s the video of Beyonce’s classy move …  🙂

Do You Wanna . . . ?

9-9-09

It’s all about the NINES today!  Happy 9-9-09 at 9:09 am on the 252nd (2+5+2=9) day of the year on Wednesday (9 letters) in September (9 letters)!

Information about the nines:

According to numerologists, as the final numeral, the number nine holds special rank. It is associated with forgiveness, compassion and success on the positive side as well as arrogance and self-righteousness on the negative.

Other numerologists say it can be seen as both a signifier of endings and beginnings. But more important, it’s the number of humanity, of coming together and helping one’s fellow man.

According to Bible, 9 is the number of finality or judgment – the judgment of man and all his works. As per Bible 9 is 3X3 the product of divine completeness.

In Japanese, the word for nine is a homophone for the word for suffering, so the number is considered highly unlucky – second only to four, which sounds like death.

Historically, ancient Chinese emperors associated themselves closely with the number nine, which appeared prominently in architecture and royal dress, often in the form of nine fearsome dragons. The imperial dynasties were so convinced of the power of the number nine that the palace complex at Beijing’s Forbidden City is rumored to have been built with 9,999 rooms.

WHEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

Wishing everyone a FUN and RELAXING Labor Day!!!!!!!

Happy Labor Day!

iPhone vs AT&T

I LOVE my iPhone!  It’s the best phone I’ve ever owned, but the service is HORRIBLE!  I’m lucky if I can get any reception to make a call.  AT&T’s exclusive rights to the iPhone ends in 2010.  I read through this New York Times article that basically states that the more users on the AT&T network (iPhone being the biggest network drainer), the worse your service will get.  Here’s a summary of the article:

CUSTOMERS ANGERED AS IPHONE OVERLOAD AT&T

To sum up the article:

  • iPhone users use a lot more wireless data than users of other phone models
  • AT&T’s wireless network is unable to meet this demand
  • Voice services are affected adversely too
  • 34% of non-iPhone owners said they did not buy an iPhone because of AT&T’s poor reputation
  • Mobile data traffic is expected to double every year through 2013

Will my prayers be answered for a solid service one day? Hello?? Can you hear me??

Chris Brown’s Interview on Larry King

Chris Brown did not seem genuine at all.  He said on Larry King, “I’m not a man yet!” … no bro, you’re not!  It looked like someone told Chris to dress like an innocent 8 year old boy so people would feel sorry for him.  I’m not too sure if that worked.


SO CUTE!!!

Stay Away From Drugs!

Attention Boys and Girls!  This is the reason why you should stay away from drugs.  

Whitney Houston’s much publicized concert on ‘Good Morning America’ was cut short due to her lost voice.  She apologized to the crowd in Central Park for overusing her voice on ‘Oprah’… or maybe it was because of the years of drug use that she lost her amazing voice.   🙁  

 

Back in the day . . .

When life was simple and innocent … Here’s a photo of my friend and I ‘trying’ to make our own candy bar to sell to passing pedestrians in front of her house.  Let’s just say we did not make any money that day.  😛

Summer Jobs

I had a job as a busgirl at a restaurant when I turned 14.  I jumped over to McDonalds when I turned 16. Here’s a list of the strange summer jobs of famous people.  What was your first job?

1. Orlando Bloom’s first job was working at a skeet shooting range as a clay pigeon trapper when he was just 13.

2. Beyonce Knowles’ mother owned a salon when the future pop star was growing up, so the aspiring singer picked up some extra cash by sweeping up hair.

3. As a teenager Mick Jagger worked as an ice cream salesman. After entering the London School of Economics, Jagger also worked as a porter at a mental hospital.

4. Jagger wasn’t the only member of the band to have a gig before the Stones. Keith Richards worked as a ball boy at a tennis club.

5. It’s tough to envision Colin Powell as anything other than a general or diplomat, but when he was growing up in the Bronx, he worked in a baby furniture store. Powell even picked up a bit of Yiddish on the job since that was the preferred language of his employers.

6. Warren Buffett had cash going through his hands even as a young man; his first job was at his grandfather’s grocery store, although he eventually worked his way up to a gig at J.C. Penney.

7. NFL running back Edgerrin James had a particularly grueling summer job as a kid: he worked 16-hour days loading watermelons into a truck near his Florida home to save up the cash to buy his first car.

amy-adams.jpg8. Actress Amy Adams needed cash to buy a car after high school, so she spent two months working as a Hooters girl.

9. Of course, some early jobs predict the future rather well. Before rising to prominence with Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne worked in a slaughterhouse.

10. As a young man, Matthew McConaughey wanted to get away from Texas for a while, so he spent a year in Australia. To support himself, he took on a number of jobs, including one that involved shoveling chicken manure.

11. When country star Clint Black was 14, he got a job selling newspaper subscriptions door-to-door in Houston.

12. Gwen Stefani earned some cash in her early days mopping floors at a local Dairy Queen.

13. Rod Stewart had a number of jobs before his music career took off, but gravedigger was undoubtedly the creepiest.

14. Need a rat catcher? Call Warren Beatty. He caught rodents to pay the bills before hitting it big.

15. Jimmy Stewart was a man of many talents, from acting to being an Air Force general. As a young man, though, he had a job painting the lines on roads and also spent two summers as a magician’s assistant.

16. James Brown had a number of jobs before he became the Godfather of Soul, including one in which he racked balls at a poolhall.

17. You never know how a weird job might pay off. Singer Chubby Checker had a job as a chicken plucker at Fresh Farm Poultry in Philly. His boss would let Checker sing to entertain the customers. When the boss realized just how talented his chicken plucker was, he arranged for Checker to have a recording session with Dick Clark.

bill-cosby.jpg18. Bill Cosby played four sports in high school, but he still found time to sell produce, shine shoes, and work as a stock boy at a supermarket.

19. Tom Cruise’s family moved around a lot when he was young, but during one stint in Louisville he picked up some extra cash as a paperboy.

20. Ed McMahon knew his voice was going to be valuable early on. As a teenager he worked as a carnival barker and a bingo caller, and he later put himself through college working as a pitchman for vegetable slicers on the boardwalk in Atlantic City.

21. Bill Murray never worked as a greenskeeper, but he did have an interesting job selling chestnuts outside of a grocery store.

22. Brad Pitt did all sorts of things to earn a buck while he tried to start his acting career, including dressing as a giant chicken to promote an el Pollo Loco restaurant.

23. When Christopher Walken was a kid, he joined the circus.  He took an unpaid job with a small act and even did a little lion taming, although he later claimed the lion was very old and “really more like a dog.”
