Happy Birthday to me November 17 - 24

Monday 17 - so I was so full of anxious energy (but the good kind) yesterday I ended up having a nap while watching the race! My Favorite Driver made it to the championship round. So after having the fits for the 2nd half of the race, especially when Harvick 2-3 rows back after a pit stop I nearly had a fit. But the man who is called 'Happy' I think I'm just going to nick name speedy as he's has been just that this season with 5 wins, 20 Top 10 finishes and being on pole 8 times. This his 14 season, and I think the 1st or 2nd in the #4 car and WIS the championship in 2014!! I'd say it was in the 4s!

Worked a bit on doing a few posts on the Craft blog (only 1 or 2 posts have been published so far) I am trying to get everything figured out with all the blogs what kind of content to include in the pages, and so on.

Today I just watched Once Upon a time as I was working on the computer yesterday until Walking Dead came on (besides Once was a 2 hour episode so I didn't want to watch,  then have to change the station & then try and then find on demand that they had it as one 2 hour episode. Turns out I could have watched the first hour then watched Walking dead as they did it in 2 parts On Demand. Also changed my bed, now just need to check email.

Tuesday 18th- funny that my birthday cards all came the same day. I think this is a first!

Wed 19- so mom & I went to central ave to get my free entree from Uno's (could ahve gotten a free rooty tootyfresh & fruity breakfast from ihop but the steak at Uno's was so worth not going!)
I also got a free Mociato (sp?) from Starbucks. Only got a few things while out, mostly at the beauty store for my nails. I can never seem to find the fine & super fine emery boards or just a chamois buffer. I had a decent birthday and fully enjoyed my new tv (mom gave it to me a few weeks ahead to be sure it worked) while watching Arrow & American Horror Story tonight.

So I hear that People have announced their Sexiest man alive for this year, I'm not sure if I want to find out. (I always remember it usually is announced around my birthday & the issue usually comes out that weekend) So I saw that on Jimmy Kimmel they would have the person only the audience had to ask the person via skype questions to find out who they were. And no, you couldn't figure out tthe voice as they messed it up as well he does have an identifying voice. So as they are asking I'm thinking on maybe it's Luke eveans then i'm like No... and the person's arms look really familiar. So I'm like it's gotta be a Hemsworth or Taylor Kitsch.
Well I nearly screamed! It's Chris!!!!

Saturday 22- mom & dad went out to get groceries and when they were done, dad & I went out to central ave as my damn ink ran out & I have a freebie for a movie to print out. When I get to the front of the inks.. I totally forget which 2 colors I need. yellow or Blue along with pink.  Received one of the things I ordered from Ebay (not with birthday money but what I had left from my squidoo royalties) A Scorpio themed magnetic poetry kit.

& here's something I wrote with it. (I turn all the magnets over & pick some words out & this is what I got)

Control as mystery
always passionate
like the use
probing curious
volatile water

Sunday 23 - figured to try to print the other coupon & free movie 'tickets' (certificate for movies) and damn I got the wrong one! I got Yellow when I needed blue & it's the blue that's fully out so no print again :-(   Trying to watch 3 days to kill while out here trying to get some things typed up. Watched St. Vincent Yesterday while mom & dad were out. Then All is bright, before my shows.   check out the movie reviews post  (still have to type those 2 up still). So remember I mentioend they were filming a movie on the street behind me? Well I think they may be in front of the house either starting tonight  (there's signs around the neighborhood starting at 10pm tonight til 10pm tomorrow night) or tomorrow morning. So I'll see if I can get some info out of the people like I did last time, only I was told Wynona Ryder would be in it but she's not credited on IMDB for the movie. If it's still the same movie I just wonder why they are filming in our area as the mayor it's on,  lived on Yonkers ave (down the hill from the park I hung out in) and died (killed himself though I still question that) in the cemetery where his parents are buried. I think it's suposed to be on HBO come fall 2015 (if the girl was telling the truth)

Monday 24- well stupid news interrupted Dancing with the stars 2x!! one like 2-5 minutes before the end. Stupid idiots! thank Gods for internet! I think it was Derrick & Bethany Mota (a you tube star)

So I already received a few of the things I ordered with a little $ I got for my birthday. 
The My Darkest Days cd, Blade COmplete series, a book about Yule, those rubber-band things for the smash books (actually it wasn't just a set they sent a packages of 3 sets!!) I just looked up on amazon my order to check the item description again, it says 2 bands nothing of it being a lot of 3 sets of them. So not only did I get a deal for $2.99 (cause granted in joanns or other stores that would have it, they'd be 3-4.99! But now I have some extras I can sell or give as gifts! AWESOME! 
I ordered a little scorpio magnetic poetry kit (fits int he palm of your hand) from ebay. I am still waiting for one other cd from amazon

November Movie Reviews

Satan's Playground- so this family gets stuck in the woods in their car on some dead pine needles. They're too dumb to find a few twigs or small branches to put in front & behind the tire to get some traction so they deserve whatever is going to happen (and I know it likely won't be good!). One of them leaves and finds a house and the old lady says she's Mrs. Leeds (um.. the same as the one that gave birth to the jersey devil?... You betcha!) So they are in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey .
Nothing original, just a road trip gone bad movie and you never get to see the Jersey Devil. D- Disappoints and plain stupid

The Black Waters of Echo Pond-  well thank goodness this was better than the above. A bunch of 'kids' (I guess at least college age) are on vacation to some island I think around Maine. One of them finds some hidden 'treasure'  in the basement  which brings out the friends' dark sides and pits them against one another. Definitely not original as the evil game board have been done before but I enjoyed watching this one which I think had a twist  C

Deliver us from evil - Starring Eric Bana as an undercover cop. When something fishy  happens at the Bronx Zoo (finally the place of some of my fave childhood memories is in a horror movie!) It's just another possessed exorcisim movie. It was ok but Hollywood needs to move on to some other sub-genre C

Slaughter- Lost interest pretty quick. from what I saw ,it looked like  a rip off of something I saw yeas ago (or a few different ones) D-

Neighbors- pretty stupid, but there's at least some literal laugh out loud moment. Of course THE best part was already played out and oiver played being in the trailers C-

The Signal- I don't have much of anything to say = NOT GOOD. Now I know why I didn't hear much about it, bet it lost money too. THe only 'good' thing (note sarcasm) is it didn't go in the way I thought, sadly it wasn't unique and the ending well I'll just say to Doctor Who fans, didn't we already see something like this in Peter Capaldi's first season (in was it 2nd or 3rd to last episode?)  D-

St. Vincent- Bill Murray & Melissa McCarthy star in this comedy. She moves in with her son next door to Murray's curmudgeonly  character. He's broke and ends u watching her boy, and takes a liking to the kid.  The movie is actually funny and the "you're the only Puerto Rican Polak" line (I'm part polish) had me cracking up, though on a delay as I wasn't sure if I had heard right. Enjoyable & worth the watch B

All is Bright- Was this Paul Rudd Paul Giamatti (sp?) movie supposed to be a comedy? I mean paul rudd as a cnadianwas pretty much the only laugh I got with the blatant 'Aboot'. Aside from that the movie is a cure for insomnia.  D-

3 days to kill- I think I got this for dad it looked alright plenty of action as far as I could see but sadly the dark disk froze a time or 2  (Incomplete)

Welcome to the Punch- starring James McAvoy who plays detective Max Lewinsky who in his in-experience (at the beginning) loses a foot chase to criminal Jacob Sternwood played by Mark Strong .
After Sternwood's son Ruan ('Walter' from Scorpion) is involved in a boched heist and ends up injured so Dad returns and the Detective is back on the hunt. I enjoyed the movie, nice action thriller but for me something felt missing maybe a few more layers I'm not sure but I'd say a high C or low B

See No Evil - Oh wow a Clean shaven Greyston Holt! 
takes place after the events of the last movie, they are bringing the bodies in. WWE's Kane is back in the role of Jacob Goodnight (can't help but snicker for the irony of the last name) . In some parts you feel the intense emotions the characters do (or maybe I just got really into the movie). Wow that's an original way to die.. (not ruining it not even whose it is)  Tho not climatic, so would totally have been a disappointment if it ended with that bu thankfully it does not. The terror of a maniac in a morgue or medical facility is nothing new but this was some what a fresh look (to me in a way) not to mention the 'action' thank goodness they would move on just when the scene would be close to losing me. C+

Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever:
  Now this is a Christmas Movie I can take! (not to mention Lifetime movie) which are usually awful. The action and cliche predicable story lines are just idiotic.Grumpy cat well how many movies are basically the same no matter what holiday or not.

The movie is at least fun, and for those of us that say Bah Hum Bug... like me you will appreciate Grumpy cat's remarks. (Honestly I wish Christmas shows would have Grumpy Cat pop ups...) This isn't just pop up remarks etc. yes The cat knon as Grumpy cat whose real name i heard is Tartar Sauce (no one she's got a grumpy face) learn more about her here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumpy_Cat

If you can catch a re-airing or when available get it on video.
(I just hope you can get sarcastic humor otherwise you may then not find it funny)

Tuesday November 4th -  
Well turns out I have bursitis in that hip (right) that's always bothering me. 
Found  That Taylor kitsch will OFFICIALLY be in True Detective season 2 on (I think it's) HBO 

Wed 5th 

This is cute, my Fri end Helen posted it

Went to my old Job @ Torre Lumber to visit as new owners will be taking over sooner or later and wanted to visit my Pepper cat (she was supposed to keep the mice away, though she did get to spend a long weekend with us at my house when she first showed up) Not sure if hey'll keep her, and now she knows something is up as she's pissing all over I'm told which means she's marking her territory. Went went to visit my Nana didn't stay long as there was construction around the area. Found a few books that looked interesting in the bookcases in the lobby.  Posted a few letters and went to Cablevision to exchange our old boxes for the hd ones. Got home tried to hook mom's up wouldn't co-operate.. (not sure which I did next) and it was just yesterday! But I either took a nap or tried to hook mine up... But I think I took the nap as I thought maybe I'm jsut too tired to deal and figure things out so I went to rest. Got up and I think we had dinner first then i worked on mom's tv/cable again and still woulnd't go right so I tried to hook mine up... went quite smoothly. Tried mom's again still not going call cable, and the guy is trying to help, but nothing I didn't o already! Then I notice it... the wrong wire is plugged in, I have no idea where it even came from but finally it worked and all is well!

Thurs 6  

Go to hook up dvd player to my tv (as the cable wire hooks into same spot that the dvd one did (at least on the old tv..)  So for some reason it didn't work when I first did, so I'm trying to sort out the wires and what they go to dvd, vcr or cable box etc as well as get them untangled. Finally I get it, & ended up having to do the same changing it back to cable but being as I had not experimented yet with figuring out how to hook everything else directly to the new tv I did now and  I was able to get rid of the darn RF modulator (don't even ask me WTF that was for but I think it was so you could plug multiple components into one tv  if it only had 1 antennae wire) 

Friday - had the hearing today and we got through I guess most of it but sadly they did not have all the records from my file at the mental health clinic. SO I have to go back for a 3rd time grrr and I  was in so much pain yesterday sitting there. On the way home mom & I had to stop into P.C> Richards to see if we could find a new toaster oven we found one but sadly they didn't have it in stock but will be in on monday. So we'll be able to make hotdogs toast etc again. (I'm starving... and I now realize most of my cooking if not in a frying pan is in that oven! 

for 'CAT'urday  I give you some animal links to put a smile on your face (and one is already on theirs!) 

Sunday   ::::: SCREAMS in Victory!!:::::    Harvick WINS makes it into Championship round  which includes Logano, Newman & Hamlin which by my prediction.. will come down to Harvick or Logano... (at least as far as by races won) 

So it's now monday and I'm juggling trying trying to go through email, tweets, writing this, need to finish a write up for one of the halloween posts, write a couple of reviews  and a handwritten letter to my pal Helen in England.
