30 Day Film Challenge #26

26. A movie that you love but everyone else hates

If you ask my husband that would be most movies I choose on Netflix. If it doesn't have cars and action he loses interest.

4 Day Weekend

Even with a 4 day holiday weekend I still feel like I worked hard.

It was a great Thanksgiving with the family. I was nearly driven insane by the smell of the turkey all day. It tasted as great as it smelled.

On Friday I spent the day cleaning and putting up my sweet new white tree. It fit perfectly into the living room. I love it.

Saturday the husband and I wandered around. I went to a couple thrifts, but nothing exciting to report. We went to see The Muppets (as mentioned in my silly Film Review post). It was fun just to hang out with my coworker.

Sunday the husband and I took on the daunting task of putting up lights. The husband likes to hang them from wire from the house to a tree. We put a mess of icicle type lights along the fence along the road. I made lighted trees out of tomato cages.

(mine doesn't look this good :(  Care of

We still have to cover the porch in lights and put out the Village People as I call them... the nativity scene we inherited last year from the in-laws. All I need is an angel to complete the set.

I can't wait for all the lights to be up. The husband's Holiday Extravaganza!!

30 Day Film Challenge #25

25. The funniest movie you’ve ever seen

What kind of silly question is that. I am not into absolutes. No one has made me pee my pants yet. Pass.

Then this past weekend we went to see The Muppets with my adoreable coworker. She laughed at everything. It wasn't drop dead funny or even pee my pants funny, but it was sweet. I love Muppets.

I want to check out these movies as well...

30 Day Film Challenge #20

20. Favorite movie from your favourite actor

I have started to love Liam Neeson.

I love his determination in getting his daughter back in Taken.

I love his lovely widower in Love Actually.

I love his great portrail of one of my favorite childhood TV show characters, Hannibal in A-Team.

Since this is the week of Thanksgiving I am federally mandated to discuss what I am thankful for.

Seriously, with the father in-law's recent heart attack, the husband's bum knee and numerous sick friends I have to think about being thankful for my health. Then I had a migraine today. Now I am worried I ODed on Goody's power because I took two tonight.

I am really thankful for my wonderful family. The husband and in-laws are my immediate family. Without them I would be a lonely crazy cat lady.

I am thankful for my pet children. They drive me crazy with their yapping just like real teenagers. It also costs too much to feed them. I think I should be able to claim them as dependents.

I am thankful I have a job in this wonderful economy. Every day is an adventure. You never know if someone will be eating their flesh, looking like a concentration camp victim or inserting something into a urethra. I think I am the only one in the department that looks forward to the strangest clients.

I am thankful for my freedom. I try and appreciate it every day. Too many people are imprisoned by someone else or by their own choices. 

I am thankful for a roof over my head. The roof doesn't leak and no one has fallen through the floor in a long time. I am thankful I have found many interesting things to help fix up the house. I just have to get off my butt and put down a floor over the entire house this winter.

I am thankful for my mind. So many people suffer from countless disorders that remove their faculties. I am thankful my mental health is the best it has ever been. The husband may beg to differ.

I am thankful that my mother in-law cooks the whole dinner. I am happy to eat. She has yet to find anything she makes that I don't like.

Now let's eat!

30 Day Film Challenge #18

18.A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen

Defending Your Life (1991)

But I tell lots of people to see it. It is a good movie about going to pergutory and having to go to court about your life in order to move on. Add the twist of Albert Brooks, Meryl Streep, plus Rip Torn and it is funny and sweet. A must see.

30 Day Film Challenge #16

16. A movie that you used to hate but now love

I can't think of anything for this one. I tend avoid some movies. When I do watch them I do not end up loving them. Occasionally I tolerate them. Pass.

30 Day Film Challenge #15

15.A character who you can relate to the most

Dante in Clerks (1994)

When the movie came out I was a clerk at a 7-11. I was trying to figure out what to do with myself. I didn't have quite the adventures of Dante, but I was at the same place in my life. I also wanted to really be Randall.

14. A movie that no one would expect you to love

I already did a post about my confession about movies I am not quick to admit to liking.

30 Day Film Challenge #13

13.Favorite film based on a book

Tough one. I choose the most obscure - Crash and not the newer one but the one based on the JG Ballard book. It is an interesting tale of people who get excited about car crashes. I am a sucker for Elias Costas. Plus it's directed by David Cronenberg.

"After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred, omnisexual car-crash victims who use car accidents and the raw sexual energy they produce to try to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife."

Crash (1996)

11. A movie that changed your opinion about something
