Merry Christmas…in July

We decided to celebrate Christmas in July this year.

We went to Byers Choice and the National Christmas Center.

Byers Choice had lots of places to take photos beyond the exhibits.  This was a dress up area with costumes and a Christmas background to take pictures in your dress up 🙂

It was so hot that Byers Choice had the local fire department come out with the hose to cool the kiddies down.

It was such a fun time.  I got to see so many of my favorite beings (elves) and relive a little bit of my childhood 🙂

 

A Beautiful Weekend

What an amazing weekend.  I’m tired but it was worth it.  The sun was shining, it was warm (86 degrees) and very low humidity!  Hurrah!  Our friends let us use their pool this weekend while they were away so that just added to the greatness of the weekend 🙂

I got to finish the book I was reading and start a new one.  It is turning into the summer of “Murder, She Wrote”, lol.  I enjoy Jessica Fletcher…it’s a weakness 🙂

Millie and Tara enjoyed the sun pool side too.  Tara’s not a fan of the water (or any water for that matter) but they both had a quick dip in the cement pond.

To top off the festivities we decided to make our own pizza.  Pizza Bagels are the best.  Who knew.  They were so yummy!  It’s definitely the way to go!  Now it’s time for a little rest but wow! what a weekend 🙂

p.s. Yes I know my grammar is atrocious.  It’s part of my charm 🙂

Florence Foster Jenkins…The Movie

This weekend I got to see the movie Florence Foster Jenkins.  It was an amazing movie.  Filled with Ups and Downs that made it believable.  It is a film about FFJ.  She was a woman who inherited her money.  She used this money to her foster her joy of music.  She used it to bring happiness to herself after life had been bitter toward her.

Hugh Grant was excellent as St. Claire Bayfield.  All of the actors were excellent.  Simon Helberg offers some levity during the more tense moments.  Just a nice film.  I highly recommend this film.

Everything In My Life Comes Back To Ghostbusters

It happened again yesterday.  Someone said “Shut it down, shut it all down”.   I of course went back to Ghostbusters.

Some would find my life sad.  I find it hysterical.  I’m weird like that!

Justin Bieber Ruins Everything

This morning whilst I perused the news I came across an article that rocked me to the very core of my being.  Justin Bieber is an Arsenal F.C. fan.  Seriously, hasn’t he ruined enough wonderful things with his tacky, low-class self already?

Yes the Beebs can sing well but it ends there.  He collects pets and then just discards them (strike one), he smokes pot with is Dad (strike two, and who does this???) and well there are 100 more things but I’ll only put Strike Three…he really thinks his talent excuses him being an out and out peckerwood.  It doesn’t (Strike Three).  When the money runs out (and it will) and his shenanigans get him on the do not call list, he will just be a washed up dude with a singing voice who no one wants to higher.

Arsenal was my football team.  Now it feels like I’m dirty because of Beebs.  Do I jump ship and head over to Man U?  This is no way to start a Monday people!  I have many decisions to make today.  Who’s triumph’s will I celebrate from here on out?

Damn you Justin Bieber!!!

Coulrophobia It’s Real Man!

Coulrophobia is a fear of clowns.

I’m not sure when or why I developed a fear of clowns.  It’s real and it’s weird.  Clowns are basically harmless.  Well, unless they are associated with Stephen King…then not so much.  I think the only clown I’ve never been freaked out about is Bozo.  I think it’s because I once had a Bozo punching bag.  Perhaps it was a bit therapeutic to have a clown I could punch.

I’m still freaked out though…
