All I can say is THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY!!

I trust and hope that you all will have a lovely weekend (Or enjoy what’s left of the weekend for some of you)

1) I honestly can’t understand how this is a good idea:

Teri Hatcher will show off her singing skills when she performs on America charity fundraiser "Idol Gives Back" next week. The Desperate Housewives star will hit the high notes on the mini-telethon.

The New York Daily News reports the actress will perform Carrie Underwood’s "Before He Cheats" with co-star James Denton and Hugh Laurie’s celebrity group The Band From TV.

Now I’m not trying to be rude here because I’m sure she can sing a heck of a lot better than me but ………

A) I’ve seen the video of the last time she performed with the band and it wasn’t horrible but still.

B) I want coverage about how awesome the band is, not about Teri Hatcher singing. There hasn’t been a mention really in mainstream media about BFTV performing but now that she’s involved it’s all over the place. Hugh, Greg and the rest are great; why not give them credit where credit is due.

C) She’s singing a CARRIE UNDERWOOD song. I’m sorry Teri, you are no Carrie Underwood. This has the possibility of being cringe worthy and will reflect poorly upon the band.

This sums up my feelings perfectly:

2) Holy Crap!! All I can say is if you have a PS3 or Blu-Ray disc player buy all your movies from They always have them on sale and have that free super shipper shipping price for orders over $25.00. New releases are usually 30% off.

3) How sad is it that my best friend since I was 10 and I are planning a “Bopper” (Don’t ask, it was our group’s nickname from school) reunion for the soon to be announced New Kids on the Block Reunion tour. *facepalm*

-Yes I am THAT hopeless.


4) I think I’m going to add “Serial Mom” and “American Psycho” to my never ending Netflix queue. I think I’m up to 57 movies in there now.

-Yeah I know, that was random but do you expect anything less form me? :)

5) I’m sad that there aren’t any pictures of Hugh at the Street Kings premiere. From everything I've read (the press releases and such) I believe he was expected to show. Maybe commitments to "House" kept him from being there or that he was late.

-One week everyone and we get to see him on the big screen!!!!

6) I was fiddling around a little bit with the set up of the Alan Rickman community [ profile] alanbunnies and was using our Hugh Laurie community [ profile] hughbunnies as a guide. I stumbled upon the fact that we now have 219 Members O_O. Needless to say I am absolutely floored at the response.

-[ profile] bonorattle Can you believe it!!! Our little community made from adoration and love. I couldn’t be prouder *hugs*

7) This is how life seems to feel on a daily basis and it made me LOL so hard.

Google your name in quotes with the word 'is' (ex. "kim is") and post your favorite results.

-Shelly is also President of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, NY (I WISH!!)
-Shelly is a BEAUTIFUL person inside and out!! (Ummm, not really)
-Shelly is flooded with responses from men seeking exactly what she's offering, but she doesn't always get what she's looking for. (Man, I'm a slut)
-Shelly is finally dedicating herself to recovery (From my Hugh and Alan addiction I assume lol)
-Shelly is enjoying growing older and values the lessons life has taught her (I suppose this would be true)

****I just finished watching Sweeney Todd with my husband.****
-He enjoyed it and didn't make one comment or verbal grunt about Alan Rickman being in it.
-Wow, what a twisted story and movie. Should I be frightened that I loved it?
-Judge Turpin, what a sick, twisted freak. Damn you Alan for making me not hate him.
-It was great to watch while not having any idea where the story was going. I knew a bare minimum about the plot and for that I am grateful.
-The "gore factor" didn't bother me as much as I thought.
-All the actors were phenomenal, especially Helena Bonham Carter, Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman and Ed Sanders (Toby the orphan)

Happy April 1st everyone.

I’m not much of an April Fools prankster so you don’t have to worry about any misinformation from me. I’ve seen enough misleading articles being passed around the internet already today that I have no desire to pull a fast one on anyone :)

1) I’m still recovering from my weekend out of town. We had a lot of fun. I had prepared myself to write an entire LJ entry regarding it and as soon as I went to type it up, the words just failed to burst forth. Hopefully tonight I will do better, plus I have plenty of pics and videos to share (If you’re interested in that type of thing)

2) I will be heading up to Target on my lunch break today to purchase my copy of Sweeney Todd. I’m so excited. I wasn’t able to view this movie in the theatre because my Hubby wouldn’t go because A) It’s a musical and B) He couldn’t deal with my squeeage over Judge Turpin.

3) While at Universal’s Islands of Adventure I checked out the construction on the new Harry Potter theme park, “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter”. It seems to be coming along rather nicely. The ground has been prepared and construction has begun. They have the area hidden pretty well so I only have a couple pictures and a video that I will post later this evening along with a more detailed description.

4) I am so happy, only 11 more days until I fly up to New Jersey to meet Lindsey/ [ profile] bonorattle I’m pretty sure NJ will never be the same after this.

5) So we’re sitting here talking about obscure/non-popular 80’s movies. Here’s a list of some of them, see how many you’ve seen!

-The Wraith
-Night of the Comet
-Saturday the 14th
-Hiding Out
-My Best Friend is a Vampire
-Fright Night
-Space Camp
-Killer Clowns from Outer Space
-All of Me
-The Incredible Shrinking Woman
-Uncle Buck
-The Great Outdoors
-Under the Rainbow
-Seems Like Old Times
-Cloak and Dagger
-The Monster Squad

So excited, I only wish I could hear it at work but I have no speakers.

So excited today, this Hughsday episode is "Merry Little Chritmas" Hands down this episode is in my Top 3.  Hugh is amazing, no wait, that's too weak of a word, Hugh is an absolute revelation in this episode. The various stages and emotions he conveys is beyond belief. Plus my favorite House/Cameron moment occurs here.

I believe I have finally for the most part recovered from my mental collapse last week. I am motivated to do more than just care for my son and myself. The house is coming together, presents are getting wrapped (and sent out), cards are finished, and most importantly bills have been paid.

I bought Sense and Sensibility on Sunday and Love Actually (hence the icon) I have loved the first movie since it came out on screen, not to mention that pesky character actor in there, what's his name again? MR. Palmer....Hugh Something.  I've never seen Love Actually, I can't wait to view it.

I'm a little late to the table with this but I am in absolute shock that our little community that could [community profile] hughbunnies is up above 100 members now. To say that I am in awe and appreciative would be an understatement.

Onto the meme. As taken from [profile] angidas 
12 Things That Make Me Happy

1) The laughter from my child. Nothing will ever compare to that sound.
2) The unbridled joy on a child's face the first time you take them to Walt Disney World.
3) Laying in bed with my husband with my head resting on that spot beneath his shoulder. I fit perfectly there.
4) My family, they may drive me crazy but I am fortunate to be related to such wonderful people.
5) My friends (in person or over LJ) 
6) Having fun and gushing over Hugh Laurie. Is it silly, yes but also so much fun. Not to mention he's so easy to gush over.
7) Writing, it may seem like an odd thing to be happy over but nothing matches the feeling of accomplishment that occurs when you put sweat and tears into a passage and people compliment you on how much they love it.
8) My dogs and cats. Pure, unadulterated love from something that doesn't ask for really anythjing in return goes a long way.
9) Christmas
10) Being blessed with an amazing life that at times I seem to be unappreciative of but that I shall try never to take for granted again.

Holy God, I just finished watching "The Secretary" and all I can say is WOW.

I don't know what I was expecting going into the movie except that I was told by multiple people to watch it and after reading [profile] houseketeer's "Soundtrack to Secretary" it seemed like a good idea to do on a Friday nght.

Can I just say I was blown away by how amazing the film was and how amazing Maggie G and James Spader were in it. GUH, I've always loved James Spader, he's a freak but in this movie he was a revelation. Just awe inspiring acting, the emotions he conveyed in his scenes were indescribable.  And Maggie G, amazing, amazing actress.

I honestly can't say enough about the beauty and sexiness of this movie.  A great story and acting.  

I am so in love with naughty James Spader right now. (Well he'll never replace Hugh but damn, he was hot!)

OK, that's the end of my squeeage
