Wild hogs…………

August 27, 2007

Ok, so it was weekend and I felt lazy.  All I wanted to do was relax.  What better way than watching an entertaining movie.  I’ve seen the trailer for Wild Hogs.  I even happened to watch the episode that Oprah featured the movie and made a mental note of “I must see this movie”.  After all, John Travolta is part of the cast and that gives me enough reason to want to see the movie.  Off I go to the video store and was pretty upset when I had to book the movie because they didn’t have any copies left.  I waited a week with bated breath and couldn’t wait to finally get my hands on the dvd.  Man oh man oh man.  If you haven’t seen it yet(sorry, I am normally the last one to get to see the good ones) do yourself a favour and get it!!!!! It is not the best movie you will ever see, but it sure is one of the funniest.  I think what makes the movie work for me is the combination of cast members. Tim Allen and Martin Lawrence are known for their comic antics.  They are at their best in this movie.  William H Macy has donned the hat of comedian absolutely perfectly.  In my eyes, he is the star of this movie.  Add John Travolta looking super sexy as a hard core biker and you have a winning recipe.  Big thumbs up to everyone who was involved with the making of this movie. 

I loved it.  I can’t remember when last I laughed as much as I did while watching this movie. 


Addictions??

August 17, 2007

I feel drained and exhausted.  My brain has stopped functioning and I simply just can’t concentrate on anything at the moment.  All work and no play is making Buddess very miserable.  So, I am officially taking a time out and doing what I enjoy most….blogging!!!

I think I am officially addicted to blogging.  I have had several addictions in my life and of all of them, I think this one is not so bad.  Compared to a food addiction, weight loss addiction, alcohol and sex addictions(no details will be made available, so don’t even ask), I am confident in saying that this one is probably fairly “safe”.  Apart from the fact that it does consume quite a bit of time it doesn’t have too many disadvantages.  I have often had days where I thought and felt like just crawling into a dark corner somewhere and pray that the world will just leave me in peace, but then I sit down in front of my laptop.  My fingers just automatically start typing away and I find all the therapy my mind needs. I get so involved in all the stories I read that I laugh or cry and sometimes scream “NO!!!” at some entries that I have come across that I am soon revived and ready to face another day. 

I must also admit that I watched the movie World Trade Center on Wednesday evening and it reminded me of the 2996 Project of last year. It also made me think of the person that I remembered and the fact that according to the info I got off the web, he was directly below the point of impact of the first plane.  My heart goes out to every single person who was affected by those acts of hatred.

All in all, what I am trying to get to is that I simply can’t do without my blogging.  I have to do it every day and that simply boils down to an addiction.  I don’t see it as a bad thing.  I have it under control and I am not going to stop!!!  If it wasn’t for my complete and utter self control, I would probably spend all day on the net, but doing that won’t feed my children will it?  So, I declare that I am a blog-addict but not an out of control blog-addict. No, let me rephrase that by saying that I am proudly an in control blog-addict. 

You all go and have a wonderful weekend and be sure to write all about it because come Monday, I will be checking to see what you got up to.


Beauty around us

August 3, 2007

About time that I update my blog don’t you think???  I apologize to all those out there who regularly read my blog and had to look at “Thank you for the music” for something like forever!!!!

Life is good and I have realized lately how much beauty we have around us.  I am also so happy that I indulged myself and purchase a digital camera last year.  What am I on about?? Last week, I saw the most beautiful sunset and I happened to have my camera with me.  There was no time to change any settings, so this is the result of simply pushing the shutter.

I turned around and this is what I saw next: Candyfloss in the sky…

As you can see, storm clouds were gathering and I managed to catch the light of the setting sun as it hit the clouds.

I was humbled by the beauty that surrounds us all the time and I realized that I need to look out the window every now and then.
