Show me the Nickelback baby.....

Hi ya'll,

Last night I was sitting here around 10:30 watching a lame movie when my phone rings. I see that it's from Illinois (one of my chillun's) I answer the phone and I can barely hear my son because of the background noise. Which happens to be favorite band Nickleback.
He was calling me from the Nickelback concert! OMG! I wanted to be THERE so bad. I literally almost started crying. Instead of crying I immediately called Desert Dirt Diva and told her that "Ian is watching Nickelback right this minute ...without US!!"

Normally I would have NO desire to go to some noisy ,crowded concert. But it was Nickelback!
I'm devastated :(


Speaking of the lame movie I was watching......
yesterday I rented two movies:

(Synopsis courtesy of Rotten )

Synopsis: Hell hath no fury like an office temp scorned in director Stephen Shill's domestic thriller OBSESSED. Executive-produced by entertainment megastar Beyonce Knowles, the film stars Knowles as Sharon, a one-time temp who has become a dutiful wife to investment brokerage hot-shot Derek (Idris Elba of THE WIRE), as well as the mother to their son. Further temp-tation arrives in the form of Lisa (Ali Larter of HEROES), who sets her blonde ambitions on Derek from day one. Sharon is wary but Derek remains a model of marital fidelity in the face of Lisa's repeated flirtations--inappropriate incidents that he avoids telling Sharon about. But when Derek rejects Lisa's sexual advances at the company Christmas party, her downward spiral of romantic obsession leads her to pursue Derek on a corporate retreat and attempt suicide in his hotel room. Promptly sent into spousal exile, Derek must win back Sharon's trust while the two attempt to put Lisa's psychotic episode behind them. Lisa is one temp who's not easily reassigned, though, and her increasingly brazen intrusions into Derek and Sharon's life auger an inevitable reckoning between the would-be seducer and wife. First-time film director Shill gets a wonderfully wicked performance from Larter, while Knowles shows off her claws in the film's climactic showdown. Taking its place alongside such films as FATAL ATTRACTION and DISCLOSURE, OBSESSED is a rollicking reminder that all's fair in love and stalking

This movie was ok. A little too much unnecessary romance thrown in there.It was something that could really happen now a days though. You just never know who's nuts out there.There is a huge ridiculous cat fight and a lesson about not keeping secrets from ones spouse. Worth watching if,like me, you're sick of stupid super hero movies:)

Synopsis: It's been a hell of a day on the highway.

When Federal Officers Elizabeth Anderson (Julia Ormond) and Sam Hallaway (Bill Pullman) arrive at Captain Billing's office, they have three sets of stories to figure out and a string of vicious murders to consider.

One zealot cop, a strung out junkie and an eight year old girl all sit in testimony to the roadside rampage, but as the Feds begin to expose the fragile little details each witness conceals so carefully with a well practiced lie, they soon discover that uncovering ‘the truth’ can come at a very big cost…

This movie was slow, violent and hideous.The end had me rolling my eyes in disgust that I had actually sat through the whole thing.Watch it if you dare.


After being left alone for 3 whole weeks my little British babies are on my husband now like a couple of growths.This is how he must go through life until I get to England.

The cat lady came every other day to check on them but I guess that's just not the same.

I can't believe I have not seen my cats since January. I hope they remember me (and Cavuto)


This is my plan for today so I better get of my laze and get my chores done.

Have a wonderful day peeps!

Luv me

I'm showing my age, I have no idea who they are. But, at my age I don't care. Cute pic of cats on hubby's legs. Is everything ready so you can go next month? Hope you don't have another set back. Like someone said, have him scaned to make sure it's showing up. aj

Where you dig up these wonderful movies? Bleh. And who wrote the first one about the temp - Jerry Springer? I want to rent Bejamin Button soon. Missed that in the theater. Soak up this beautiful sunshine while you can - England is coming. We spent a week there and never saw the sun (in March).
