Random Musings VI

Four good movies for a cold fall evening:

A. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: I never would have thought of Judi Dench and Bill Nighy as a couple, but it works.

B. Friends With Benefits – A cute “romcom” with a happy ending that proves Justin Timberlake is a pretty good actor.

C. Unstoppable – An action movie with an inanimate object as the villan and Chris Pine as a hottie train engineer. What more do you need?

D. The Raven – In the last week of Edgar Allan Poe’s life he has to help the police stop a serial killer who’s committing crimes based on his short stories. A brilliant premise and very well executed.

To the neighbor who has the extremely crass “No Dog Pissing” sign on his lawn – if I can pass a dog through my urinary system, I’ve got a lot more to worry about than your lawn.

I want to live a life worthy of a John Williams soundtrack.

Is anyone really surprised that Adele sings the theme to Skyfall?  To me it’s a no-brainer and it would be an awesome song, even if it had nothing to do with the movie.

I want to give a warm welcome to all who have joined my little corner of the web and have visited through my Octpowrimo and Novblopomo posts. Your support is what keeps me going and I can’t believe all the far-away places my writing has reached!

So my minister has been sick for a couple of weeks with a probable sinus infection and she needs some time off. After church yesterday, she called a quick deacon’s meeting and asked us to pinch hit for her so she can take a break without having to pay a guest minister to come and preach. So in the spirit of a dedicated Christian, I mentioned that because I am a writer, I could write a generic sermon we could keep on hand for emergencies. It wasn’t until I got home I realized, I have NO IDEA how to write a sermon.

My niece lost her first two teeth today – she had to go to the dentist to have them pulled because her adult teeth were coming in so fast behind the baby teeth that her mouth was hurting. She handled it like a champ and is excited about the first visit from the tooth fairy. She told me she’d get $2. I had to have four teeth pulled when I was her age before I got that. I think the tooth fairy owes me some money!

I befriended an 11 year old named Elizabeth at a church bake/book sale this past weekend – I’m friends with her mother but don’t know her all that well. She saw me cross stitching and just started talking up a storm – we’re going to try to get together to work on some crafts and she wants me to teach her how to cross stitch. Fun times are definitely on the horizon.
