Week 19

Let’s warm up with a new exercise. Think of a clich้, a favorite saying, a sampling of your favorite lyrics or a snippet from your favorite poem or movie. For instance, “… the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.” Now, hump it up! Here’s how the example would translate, ” … the hump, the whole hump and nothing but the hump.” The possibilities are endless … have fun with it! Ready? Hump it up!

Well, the one that comes to mine is from Austin Powers, Ivana *Hump*alot… LOL on now. Cliche… no, my favorite quote then “A road without *humping* leads nowhere” Now that is hilarious.

Okay, now that we’re all warmed up let’s move on to a little Mind Humping fun with “I say ___, you think ___.” In response to the following list of words enter the first words, phrase, idea or thought that comes into your ever humpin’ mind. Ready? Put on your humping caps.

01. lipstick :: Chopstick… wow this early and I am already hungry.
02. dust :: Lust… hungry and… LMAO
03. scissors :: Just don’t run with them.
04. balls :: of Fire as in the song… get your mind out of the gutter people ๐Ÿ˜‰
05. sponge :: he lives in a pineapple under the sea.
06. bottom :: Queen… and it song ๐Ÿ˜‰
07. doodle :: Noodle, I guess I am still hungry.
08. bottle :: Nipple, don’t ask, but yes I am talking about a baby bottle here.
09. cheese :: Gorgonzola, I do not like this chesse at all, I feel like I am eating some kind of insect because of the smell
10. queen :: Bicycle, Bicycle… I want to ride my bicycle… :)


A couple of my Dally reads have taken breaks, thank God that Bea’s was only 8 days. Now jokingly when we were chatting about her coming back I mentioned I missed the cat (her hiatus picture was a cat with a flower, cutesy picture)… now she posted on her return post about it… LOL I was just being a smartass. :)

Putting yourself in someone elses shoes

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”
– George Washington Carver

Everyone at one point or another has heard the phrase, “put yourself on someone else’s shoes.” I think that goes beyond that just point of view, but really trying to look at situations in the sense of what has made that person get to that point. I like it more when it is said, “Before you criticize people, you should walk a mile in their shoes.” Beyond that I think that the quote from this post is a lot more touching, sometimes we forget that we were young, or weak, or strong, or that some day we will all be old if we are blessed by living a long life.

Don’t ever forget to spend time with your children, remember how hard it was when your parents were not around. Be kind to your grandparents, someday you will be in that position and you then will understand. This quote really touched me and I hope it touches you too.

Friends of Friends

I have been concidered extremist a couple of times. I will explain why first and then give my reasoning for it. I love to have people over to my house, host poker games, BBQ’s, dinner parties, whatever, love to have people over. But whenever a new person becomes part of our “group” I have a talk with them. I say, your friends are welcome here, but I only want to tell you that everyone you bring to my house you are directly responsible to me for their actions. If you cannot keep your friends in line or do not trust them enough to make yourself responsible, please do not bring them. I think thanks to this, my house has always been incident free.

Now some people have looked at me like I am a little extreme for the little talk. But I think that opening the door to my house to someone is a big deal and I am not one to just have people parade in and out unless I know that they are people that I can really trust in some level or another. My family and friends are the world to me and I would not want to ever put them in any kind of danger, however small it might be. I would not want to see my little neice witness a fistfight in my house, ever.

Is that too much to ask?

Van Helsing (*)

Starring Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, Richard Roxburgh, David Wenham, Shuler Hensley, Elena Anaya, Will Kemp, and Kevin J. O’Connor

Gabriel Van Helsing (Jackman) is a man cursed with a past he cannot recall and driven by a mission he cannot deny. Charged by a secret organization to seek out and defeat evil the world over, his efforts to rid the world of its nightmarish creatures have been rewarded with the title that now follows him: murderer.

I have not been this disappointed by a movie in a long time. From watching Jackman on X-man I had expected Helsing to have a serious edge. Was looking forward to some formidable fights and not just repetitive action and way to much CGI. The movie starts slow and right away too much of a comedy. Excuse me if I like anything with a vampire on it to be really dark and just serious. I would not bother to go see this movie at all, not even rent it. I now kind of wish I would have gone to see Troy instead, but hey there will be other opportunities.

What bothered me more than the fact that the comic relief was the only good thing in the movie, was the fact that there was nothing new on the story… I mean sure Helsing was a new thing, but he had nothing that could make it real as a character. I am sad to say that Jackman picked a bad script and that maybe they were just capitalizing in his star power. It really sucks because I wanted to like this movie.
