They Just Grow Too Fast

I know I have been slackin on my post y'all.

Just haven't really had anything to write about. My life got busy all of a sudden. Don't know why.

My youngest turned 16 the other day. I feel so bad because her birthday come right after Christmas and this year, we did not even have a Christmas because we are so broke. Don't know if I can handle too much more of this.

Anyway, I can not believe she is 16, with an attitude too. I think that is automatic when a kid turns 16. I told her a few times, I brought her into this world, I can surely take her out. HA, just kidding. I would not do that, but boy they sure make you want to drink more.

I took her to get her driver's permit. Oh boy! Now, back in my day, I took the written test and the driving test all in the same day to get my license, not when I was getting the permit.

What, no you don't have to take a test for a permit, but she did. Guess what? She failed. My smart child of the bunch failed her written test. Of course she was upset.

I told her she need to review. Again, I really think my family thinks I am a total idiot.

Oh, well, it will be another couple of weeks to get back in there to take the test.

Well, I think she needed to be brought down a few notches. Things don't always work out the way you planned, as Katt Williams would say. :)

So, that is about it so far. I will let you know if she fails again. she better not.

Ghost Town

I know you are probably thinking that all I do is watch movies.
Here is another review of a movie that I thought was so funny that I will have to watch again.

The movie is called "Ghost Town" I had never heard of it. I never saw the previews or had anyone mention the movie.

I watched this movie with the hubby right after the "Eagle Eye"movie. What a great night. Some movies to get me off of the flop movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still"

This is a romantic comedy. Now, when I first saw that Greg Kinnear was in this movie, I knew I had to watch it. I love Greg, ever since the movie "As good as it gets".

This movie has an odd sense of humor to it. It has a touch of british humor to it. So, if you like british humor you should like this movie. I will have to say it is not all like that though.

A new comer to the screen for me anyway, some of you may have seen movies with him is a fellow named "Ricky Gervaris"

Notice is says Ricky Gervaris and not Ricky Bobby. :)

It appears as though Ricky is a writer for "The Office" which has an odd sense of humor as well.

I really like this guy.

Tea Leoni has a big part in this movie too. I like her better in comedy movies. Don't know how the rest of you feel. I think I live with or without her. I like the parts she plays but I don't rush out and buy the movies that she is specifically in.

This movie reminds me of a little of the movie "Heart and Souls" Do you remember? That was a funny movie too. Robert Downey, Jr. was a little hottie then too.

So there you have it. Another movie review. Hope you enjoy when you are all snowed in and the weather is just unbareable sitting next to the fire. This is a movie worth watching.

Big Brother is Watching.

Oh my gosh! You know you have heard this. Sometimes I would make jokes at the military base I taught aerobics at for the participants to smile and wave at big brother (the little camera eye). I bring this up because I watched the movie "Eagle Eye".

Ever since "Transformers" the movie came out,

I have been keeping a watchful eye (no pun intended :), on Mr. Shia LaBeouf. I knew he was going to be something.

My husband's friend brought over a couple of movies the other night, well Sunday night, and I happened to glance at the names and really did not feel like watching them.

I went and taught my classes and came home. Both my husband and my youngest daughter were both watching this "Eagle Eye' movie. I watched the tail end of it. Naturally, I did not have a clue about what the movie was about or anything. I dare ask, because I would get the fifth degree of not being there from the beginning.

My daughter and I happen to be bored this afternoon and she said "Let's watch that move the Eagle Eye mom, it is good."

I said Ok, what the heck. Man, that was an awesome movie. I have to tell you, this is one movie worth watching. Actioned packed. His co-star Michelle Monaghan is a good actress too.

Billy Bob Thornton is in this movie, along with Bobby Ray from "Sweet Home Alabama."

You need to watch this movie a couple of time just to catch all the little things. Although, you won't really miss the big stuff watching it the first time, but the second to pick up the small things. Just like the Transformer movie.

Oh, I just looked at Shia filmography. Holy Cow! I did not know he played in that many movies that I recognized.

yes, this is a must see movie. Get the popcorn ready and get your drinks ready, no time in the movie to get up and get it.
