I really couldn’t help but laugh at this. I first saw it as a commercial before I watched a different clip on YouTube, but I had to find the video alone to post.
Well done, writers; well done.



On Valentine’s Day, hubby and I watched ‘Evil Dead’ (I wanted to watch that Wednesday, Ash Wednesday, but had class) and ‘The Princess Bride’.

Every time I watch that movie, and I mean EVERY time, I tear up – if not full-out cry.

Princess Bride is everything a movie should be.
It’s funny, romantic, exciting, and creative. The casting was spectacular, the score was incredible.
I love it.

The past few days, I’ve been thinking about the movie. I clearly remember when it came out… and knowing that we just past 25 years just kinda makes me feel old.

And you know what?

I think I’m ok with that.

It was SPA happy hour tonight – onthe 17th of every month, my Irish “family” gets together for a little get-together. We hit up a different place each month. This month was a small group of people. Only 6 showed up, but it was great. We’re the “older” kids, so we could bond over that.

I love my St. Pat’s people.
They deal with the same b.s. that I do.
The drama, the catty princesses, the red tape. They get it.

These are some of my best friends.

And now I’m home.

I had class tonight. We started our new, 8-week, winter session for Egyptian/AmCab. Shimmy layers, veil work, it was awesome.
I love veil work.
It’s so graceful and flowy (is that even how you spell it?) and delicate. Things that I am generally not.
I wish I could incorporate more veil into my ATS dance.
Veil is stunning and dynamic.

Also… I may be a tiny bit intoxicated.
That’s a hard thing to type when you’ve had several oatmeal-coffee stouts.
FYI – Hinterland Coffee Stout is total amazebawlz.

Three pints shoudln’t hit me so hard, but I’ve been fairly dry.
I hit it kinda hard during my trip to the Dells, but I haven’t had this kind of quantity of beer in weeks. Because I was sick, I didn’t drinl at all for, like, 3 weeks. Then, I was at 1 beer a week.

Tonight was 3 pints in 2.5 hours.
I feel good-drunk.
Not, I’m gunna puke or anything.
Just… I feel good.
And hungry.

Luckily, I have the greatest husband in the world.
He’s making me breakfast right now – eggs, hamm, potatoes.
I love him.

And now we’re watching “The Rescuers”. Not the ‘Down under’ bullshit. Oh, no.
We’re talkin’ dark, depressing, and exciting, pre-Little Mermaid.
Total win.

Gotta watch now.
And eat.
Good night friends.

I’m in a bit of a mood… It’s been a rough couple of days.




I am what I am. I would tell you what you want to know if I could, for you have been kind to me. But I am a cat, and no cat anywhere ever gave anyone a straight answer.


I’m in a “The Last Unicorn” mood.
I’ve been listening to (not really watching) YouTube videos, and I’m about to pop in the dvd.

“The Last Unicorn” is one of my favorite books. Ever. Of all time.
And the movie is one of my favorites.
No shame – I cry. Every. Single. Time.

The absolute romance and magic are everything I loved as a child, and love still. When my parents were going through their divorce, I watched the movie constantly.
And now, when I am feeling a little down, I grab the book or some ice cream and the dvd. It’s one of the few cases where I enjoy the movie as much as the book.
And it’s the reasons why I love

(Note: Their description is crappy. It’s Rose’s Theme (Bad Wolf), not the Dr. Who theme.)
