what the f***

I would like to think I'm sort of a movie buff, thanks to my dear husband Travis.
So when I opened up the internet only to see a news slug line reading:
"G-Force topples Potter at box office"
you can only imagine I wondered:
"G-Force...I never even saw any previews for that movie. It must have been directed by someone really good. Or had really good actors.....oh wait, if it had really good actors or a really good director, I'm sure it would have been advertised. Maybe it was really loved by the country of China and everyone there went and considering they're like 1/3 the world's population and when you covert their currency into American dollars it is a lot. I better click on the link to see what it was."

And that's when I saw it.

The movie is about talking, super crime solving guinea pigs, who have access to the kind of technology that is locked away in sector 71 or 57 or whatever other sector the government has hidden it in.

And that's when I said, out loud, "what the f***."

I mean, at least Harry Potter is kind of believable. People could be able to do magic. Talking, super power guinea pigs with access to stuff even the prezzo doesn't know about, not so much.

To my continued disbelief, the article went on to compare the movie to the likes of "Mission: Impossible." Now, I know Mission: Impossible isn't the greatest movie ever, (but really liked the scene when the dudes are in the elevator shaft and the one sticks the red side of the gum to the green side of the gum, says "hasta lasagana, don't get any on ya" and then the whole thing blows up)but Tom Cruise was significantly less creepy and well still pretty good looking when the first move was made. But for real, I'm not sure it is kosher to compare the two. That's like comparing Free Willy To King Kong.

My next instinct was to read a few of the comments about the article. I found them to be just as shocking. I'll indulge you:

07/26/09 05:52 PM Dear Countrygrl65,
If someone told you that you look like a guinea pig, please take it as a term of endearment. Guinea Pigs are cute, cuddly, sweet, gentle, and extremely lovable creatures. They are fun and non-judgmental, and will listen to you without any complaints. Our Guinea piggies have to listen to me all the time when I complain about stuff, and they just sit there and calm me down.
And, if you go see this movie G-Force, you'll see that they can also be Super Heroes as well, and save all of the humans of the world from destruction.
So, the next time someone says you look like a Guinea Pig, say Thank You!

Um, yeah. ralpiggy - get a freaking life and see a shrink, not your guinea pigs. countrygrl165....considering you can't spell girl, and people have actually said you look like a guinea pig, I can only assume your mother is your sisterauntcousin and you live in a tree stump in the forest of some southern state and when you smile your toothless grin at your cousin Bubba Joe-Bob in a sexual sort of way that dueling banjoes begins to play, you probably DO look like a guinea pig.

Please excuse my while I Listerine my brain.

out of the loop...

OK, so I'm obviously a little bit behind on the whole which-singer-did-something-crazy-on-tv-that-is-getting-them-shunned-by-everyone thing....even though I'm certain someone else has done worse.

So I come across an article about all of Adam Lambert's upcoming tv appearances being cancelled. So I do a little googling and see that Adam Lambert kissed a dude during his performance...and had some dude fake giving him a bj...among other questionable actions these were the two most talked about.

I'm here to say, what's the big flippity deal? Britney, Madonna & Christina made out on live tv, in a similar situation...and people thought it was the coolest dang thing since pre-wrapped sliced right there there is absolutely NO grounds for the kiss to be any big deal. Besides, I saw the pictures, and I'm not completly convinced the keyboard player was in fact male.

As for the fake bj, have you ever watched ANY of Britney's performances? The entire t…

snow, seriously? I hate winter.

It has been 2 months and 3 days since I posted last. I suck at life.
But that's beside the point, because I'm posting now. And you know what is happening now, that sucks even more than's snowing. It is October 10 and it's flipping snowing.
I don't really remember ever seeing summer, let alone going through fall and now all of a sudden it's winter. I am seriously not ok with that.
I should have been a Mexican. So I could live in the carribean part of Mexico, where it's warm all the time, and where cold is 60ish degrees. There's hurricanes and sharks and shit, but it's warm.

In other's snowing. And it's seriously making me depressed.
That and it's 2:42 a.m. and I have this strange desire to clean out my closet. I pretty much feel like a lunatic at this point, but those 2 five hour energy shots I took are really working....quite well in fact....
I'm sure I'll be a little disgruteled in the "morning" w…

Customer Dis-service

It never ceases to amaze me how inconsiderate and/or un/mistrained and/or just plain stupid some people are.

My friend Nikki's kids had a birthday party this weekend. I asked Nikki what to get them, and we got to talking about how expensive the fancy birthday cakes are now-a-days. I had one of those moments where a light comes on and a chorus sings "AHHHAAA" in the background - I was trained how to make all those fancy cakes (and I did a pretty dang good job at it I might add) at Cold to save Nikki money and avoid her headaches by giving her kids some lame toy, I offered to make them the cakes they wanted.

I know how to bake, but I remembered that we used frozen sheet cakes at Cold Stone and they worked really well because they're level and dense and yummy. So I called Grocery Store with a Bakery #1. I won't use names to protect the identity and reputation of the rest of the store, which I've not had an issue with in the past...just the bakery.
