In Dance mode

The jump off

That's all
Just the horns and the beat- mad fun in a club...I'm feelin it!
...Forget the lyrics..too rough

Mansfield Park

Umm About Mansfield Park.
See it just because you want to see it...
It didn't move me like the others, till the last 5 minutes.

Billie Piper in Mansfield Park

I am trying to be nice but this movie really dragged on. The actors really didn't seem to connect with each other at all...
They were supposed to connect (just read the book), but geez.
They tried I imagine, but it was a no go for me...
What I think happened is this:
Billie Piper (you've seen her on the more recent Dr. Who), is really too strong of a personality to play Fanny Price. She really tries to be delicate but her facial features are a little bit too strong for her to be able to pull it off. Blonde hair and dark eyebrows just make everything oogy. The incongruity is very obvious.
Then the men are never able to match up. Either too pansy-ish or too outlandish, and never in a good way..
This is weird because the book is really beautiful with language, perfect timing and rich characters....
Some of them are likeable and some annoying but rich nevertheless


If I looked at it purely for entertainment...It rocked. Funny, quirky, cute, exciting, nice
Juno 1.jpg
If I watched it for the message...A little bit disturbing...
Michael Cera, since I first saw him on Arrested Development (with Jason Batemen), to Super Bad and other shows and interviews etc, has always been the super sweet, sensitive, lovely boy who would take care of you and be your friend forever no matter what happened. Everybody can fall in love with this type of boy. Guileless, intelligent, non game playing, communicative, there for you, every good thing, not stupidly aloof, but with a thoughtful edge to he is not a total dork... :)

I was concerned that kids would see this movie and think that Michael Cera's character would be what real life was like if they went through the same thing.
I don't believe that the kids relationship is in any way realistic. I could be wrong but I doubt it.

What People also seemed to forget in the movie, that the character of Juno is still a little girl. No matter that she was pregnant and witty and cool. She was still very young and kinda oblivious. like we all are at that age even though we think we know a lot.

Juno Production Photos Released

Which is why it shocked her to the core when Jason Bateman's character did what he did later on.
She was just being a kid, into movies and music, talking to some old dude who seemed to dig the stuff she liked.
He was just adult male gone awry-as usual.

Juno Production Photo 1

It felt weird from the get go, but I thought I was overreacting till Juno asked if Vanessa was home and he said OUT OF THE BLUE:
"No we are safe"
I was like

WHAT THE HELL! (in my mind, in my mind)
I think my friend was blown away too...He thought they set it up so that Juno would be the one to start mess.
Remember she is a kid who made a mistake...

Other than movie
ps: who else thought that Allison Janney was great as the stepmom in this movie?!
She kept me glued apart from Ellen Page (as Juno)


This morning the ice refused to be scraped.

I had to heat the car then wait for it to melt then scrape the other areas.

Maybe because it was so early but I needed to get going before the dark went away.

The other cars were just as bad

But then

OBW played for me these beautiful African Tongue drums and I was happy :)

Then I listened to Radiohead and was surprised...gonna get the album

Reasons to take care of yourself

Eat healthily
Keep away from ingesting stimulants and toxins as much as you can
Cleanse your system
Treat people well
Give of yourself to others.
Make the world a better place for you having been a part of it
Be consistently you no matter what the circumstance, no matter what anyone does to you.

That is good practice in general
But another reason is this...when you get ill...
Hospital gowns are the most unflattering pieces of apparel ever

So if for that reason ALONE, take care of yourself
I was horrified when I looked at this in the mirror.

Plus how many people had worn this before me and it was just ew.

I am going to have to design some flattering gown-wear...This is not a good thing at all....

Plus, no matter how good the insurance is the 20% you have to pay is still going to give you the heebies...illness sucks :)
(The worst part to me is the robe)

Today is not so good-forgot the day aint over :)

Where could I go?
Everywhere is freezing
Maybe they will let me put it toward my April ticket?

Actually I found out. May is the time.
I will deal with these details later
Thanks Izzy.... :)

Listening to this..Cheered me right up....

Then India Arie :)

Better Together


Verse 1:]
There's no combination of words
I could put on the back of a postcard,
No song that I could sing
But I can try for your heart,
Our dreams, and they are made out of real things,
Like a shoebox of photographs,
With sepiatone loving,
Love is the answer
At least for most of the questions in my heart ,
Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy,
And sometimes life can be deceiving,
I'll tell you one thing, its always better when we're together

MMM, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, we'll look at the stars when we're together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

[Verse 2:]
And all of these moments
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they'll be gone,
When the morning light sings
And brings new things,
But tomorrow night you see
That they'll be gone too,
Too many things I have to do,
But if all of these dreams might find their way
Into my day to day scene
I'll be under the impression,
I was somewhere in-between
With only two,
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do,
Or places we got to be
We'll sit beneath the mango tree now

Yeah, it's always better when we're together
MMM, We're somewhere in-between together
Well, it's always better when we're together
Yeah, it's always better when we're together

Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm
I believe in memories
They look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when, and when I wake up,
You look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,
And there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing,
We're better together

Northanger Abbey

I recommend this movie just because of this line.

"Prepare for your sister-in-law, Eleanor, and such a sister-in-law as you must delight in! Open, candid, artless, guileless, with affections strong but simple, forming no pretensions, and knowing no disguise."

Not finished yet

This didn't take long to sew up, but I had to press whenever I used the glue.

I just have to add the buttons and whatever embellishments.
The material was easy once I got the right needle :)
So this is a cool bag with matching money/bill purse

Liya Kebede is the reason Estee Lauder sent me almost 100 dollars in product in the mail to try out.

They were excellent BTW.
So Liya started a clothing line (LemLem) for kids, with her daughter Raee as spokemodel.

I think these clothes are perfect, and I would buy them (or maybe make them), if I had someone to put them on. :)

They picked the perfect spokesmodel

I can't even write about this right now.
Only somebody like Zadie Smith can effectively 'write me' into existence right now.
Heavy sadness settled on me.
The first time in a very long time...
Zadie can write about the puppet strings of a Cunumunu.
Short yet very elastic.....
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Ok I am starting to make myself laugh and I seriously was feeling for a few hours of unabashed self pity...
Oh well...maybe next time...


Even though Jane was ill when she wrote it, and it was her last and most 'scrappily' done work, it is one of the best.
I love Anthony Stewart Head as Baronet Elliot.

Anthony Head as Sir Walter Elliot in Persuasion

Having only known him as Giles In that TV series (where I adored him btw), it was good to see his range here. He was brilliant, even in this small part.
Sally Hawkins as Anne was nicely done.
However, I think that something was missing from the film...The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
Some small piece of 'something'. I believe it is was the introduction of Wentworth and development of his character as well as the relationships with the Musgrove daughters and Anne.
It needed a little more of that to kind of develop the Anne Elliot and Wentworth relationship.

Also the relationship between Mrs Clay and the Baronet maybe...
I dunno...The movie didn't last two full hours commercial free, so they could have done more with the time.
