My son took me on a 'date' (so sweet :) to see Beauty and the Beast. It was so wonderful! The backdrop and scenery/set were magnificent and stunning. Some of the scenes, especially the ballroom dance scene, were simply beautiful. I greatly enjoyed it and kudos to Disney for a well-made live action version of a beloved tale. Emma Watson was a perfect cast for Belle, in my opinion.
( Here's what I cooked... )
I want to wish everyone who celebrates a very Happy Thanksgiving!
I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode of Stalker and looking forward to more of that. I also thought the first episode of Selfie was cute. I'm not that impressed with NCIS New Orleans...it needs to pick up the pace and not be quite so cheesy. Scorpion is kinda fun, in a 'park your brain at the door' kinda way.
Some of my favorites have returned and are, so far, really good - Nashville, The Middle, The Goldbergs, Once Upon a Time, NCIS Los Angeles, and Hawaii Five O
So far, the new fall season is pretty good.
I hope it's been a wonderful day for everyone :) My 9 year old surprised me with breakfast in bed! He did it all by himself, too. I heard him talking in the kitchen, saying things like "what else what else...cereal, perfect!" and things like that. I thought he was talking with his dad at first, but never heard the deeper sound of the hubby, so I got up to look. He turned around and saw me, and said "Moooom! Go back to bed! I'm fixing you breakfast!" lol So I obliged. Then he yelled from the other room "Where's the trays". It was just so special. He made me toast, bacon he cooked in the microwave, a bowl of cereal and a huge glass of sweet iced tea. My husband was also shocked since he had planned to help. It was the first time our kid fixed a meal on his own. :)
He's just growing up so fast *sniffles*
Then we went outside to garden a bit. He found an earthworm and started gushing about it, what species it was, what is related to, other creatures we might find, etc. etc. etc. My husband rolled his eyes at the exaggerated never-ending fact spewing and finally told our boy "yeh yeh, we got it, we got it". At that point, my boy looked at him, sniffed a little and said "Dad, you just don't appreciate my genius". HAHAHA Smart
ass little cuss, too :)
The past year was a hard one for a lot of people. For me personally, it was bittersweet. For the bitter - I lost my godfather, my dad, a close friend of the family, the team of people I've worked with for the past 15 years, and then I lost my job. The sweet - I gained a new niece and got a new job. It's been an emotional rollercoaster.
So long 2013, you sucked! May 2014 be better for everyone!.
Anyhoo, here's some nostalgia for those of you who remember and loved School House Rock.
But, there were other things being voted on around the country that were as important as the pres race. It was good to see some of those pass!! Gay marriage and marijauna should be legalized in all the states :)
Surfing around different states' news sites and checking voting results on various things, I enjoy reading comments that are posted. The comment that wins funniest to me, and just about sums up some of the sillier laws/amendments being voted on around the country and/or cities/counties was as follows:
"Will I need a permit to wipe my ass?"
LOL A statement made of win :P
The other thing that bothers me is Henry's lack of any real feelings towards Regina, who raised him from a baby. Now, granted, she is the wicked queen and he knows this. But, it's obvious that he means the world to her. Yet, he can't even give her a hug when she swears she is going to try to change and get Snow White (his real grandma) and his real mom back from the Enchanted Forest?.
At first, I was looking forward to seeing Casshern Sins because I'd heard some good things about it. I wasn't as interested in Deadman Wonderland, but was going to give it a chance.
Now, approximately 4 episodes in, I'm thoroughly enjoying Deadman Wonderland - it's like a mystery, even with the violence. But, Casshern Sins....not so much. I hope it gets better as the series progresses;but right now it just has me confused and slightly bored.
