There's so many "bossy" lists out there. Must see movies. Ten places you must visit before you die. World's best pie. (Not sure if that last one is an actual list...) Anyways. None of these lists are authoritative in any way at all so I figure I can totally make my own bossy lists. ...more
I have been trying to avoid the endless reporting on the recent tragic death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was an immense talent, and I think it would be best for folks who have no real connection to the family or the case to focus on his legacy, his acting. He left this world far too soon, but at least the prolific performer has left us an amazing catalogue of roles. Whether he was the lead actor, supporting or even a cameo performance, whether a sympathetic or loathsome character (or possibly both at once) he was always fascinating to watch....more
I'm excited about the opportunity to give and share with other single moms. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to give. I realized today while sorting through my emails that I have two movie vouchers that my son and I have not had an opportunity to use. The tickets are to Studio Movie Grill at any theater in the Dallas Metroplex....more
Sunday is the big game, and many Americans are excited about the players, the game, Peyton Manning, buffalo wings, chili con queso, the frigid weather, and the commercials.
Show of hands here? Am I the only person in the world who could give a rat’s patootie about the NFL Super Bowl game?
I speak blasphemously, but the only thing I care less about than the NFL is college football. (There’s a backstory here that involves years of Big Ten rivalries, cold weather, insane over-the-top fans, but I’ll leave that for another day.)
Nicolas Cage just turned the big 5-0 the other day. What I like most about Cage is that his movies can be found on some of the best and worst movies of all time lists. Cage is an actor, and actors need to act. While some might say he doesn't always make the best choices, he is far from the only great actor who consistently turns up in crummy films (cough, Denzel, cough)....more
Have you had a little too much reality in 2013? Too many emails from your boss, your child's teacher, your lawyer? Have you had some days where you wish you could say goodnight an hour after you've gotten up? Ahem, I have...and that is why The Secret Life of Walter Mitty had me levitating in the theatre....more
The Hobbit: It's Always an Adventure with KyleI am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it's very difficult to find anyone. I should think so — in these parts! We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures. Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner! ~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit ...more
I cannot be the only one…who loves a Friday. I love the feeling of knowing that I have two days ahead of me sans alarm clock, not freezing in the kindergarten line up first thing in the morning, and having an extra set of hands to help me with the distinguished Sonny Boy....more
