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.

“Yes, it’s true, this man has no dick.” ~ Peter Vinkman

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.

ddd-clown

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…

Lost Another TV Icon

Van Williams died at the age of 82 on November 29th.  He was best known as The Green Hornet.  I loved that show.

I was really little when it was on in the 60’s but it’s one of my favorites.

green-hornet-car

I think it was his car that made me love this show.  Van brought humor to the action packed show.

troyvan

Earlier in his career he was known for being Troy Donahue’s side kick on Surfside 6.  Who doesn’t love a good beach show?  He was part of the early glamour studs in TV and Movies.

It’s hard losing these wonderful actors/actresses.  It’s like a piece of my childhood goes with them.  RIP Mr. Van Williams!

A Little Christmas To Start The Season – Part 2 – A Christmas Carol

Bean surprised the family with tickets to see “A Christmas Carol” in town at the Historical Walnut Theater.

The cast was amazing and the musicality was on mark.

The one thing that shocked me was how scary ‘Old Jacob Marley’s Ghost’ was and that the children would be as equally shocked, lol.

Maybe it was the booming thunder or the flashing lightning when he came into the room.  All I know is that it left many seats unoccupied when the smaller ones jumped onto the laps of Mommy’s and Daddy’s, lol.

All in all it was a 5 star performance by the Walnut Street Players!  Well done!

A Little Christmas To Start The Season – Part 1 – Hope Lodge

This weekend definitely held the Christmas Theme for us.  On Saturday, we went to Hope Lodge to share in a little Christmas Cheer…Colonial Style.

The Volunteers who run this grand old mansion did an amazing job with decorating.  They covered all of the time periods that the house was in use.  From Colonial to Modern.

Miss Erin dress up in Colonial garb to keep the illusion going.

I love trains.  This everyone knows,  so to see a train going is aces for me.

They even displayed metal trains from approximately 1920’s-1930’s.  It was a wonderful Time.

Living with Autoimmune

I’ve been lucky these last few months.  I’ve felt pretty good in general but with Rheumatoid Arthritis my good is someone else’s very bad day.

This is a representation of how I feel today.  The weather was rainy this week, coupled with a cold spell settling into the region and a stressful, sleep deprived week and this is what is left.  A person who feels broken from the inside out.  My feet are swollen and my hands as well.  It hurts when I take a breath because my costal joints are inflamed.

raliving

I’m luckier than most that I can get treatment for my disease.  I also consider myself lucky that I do not have something far worse like Crohn’s Disease which is also an Autoimmune disease.  So although I feel like roadkill on a winter day I’m still living and pushing through it.  Everyone has something…this is my something.

When I’m Bored Things Get Weird

First you are probably wondering why all of these posts are posted on 12/1.  Well there are lots of reasons but mostly I’m just lazy.  So instead of posting each day I’m posting days worth of entries all at once.  Yeah…it’s stupid, lol.

I wasn’t feeling well last weekend and I was just lying around in the recliner when this happened…

img_0437-281x500

As you know (if you read my blog) I love toys/action figures.  I’ve even created a fantasy world where they are alive.  It all started with a little Troll named Bjorn and 12 years later I’m still doing it.

I got this Hillary Clinton action figure for my birthday this year.

I was playing around with Snap Chat and these pictures are the result of my crazy views of life.

img_0434-281x500

I’m not going to lie… I had fun and think the pictures turned out well.  Snap Chat is a useful app.

Someday I will grow up…or not…I’m going to go with not, lol!
