Day 138: Clean

Posted in Re Inventing Me by pishposh71 on March 23, 2010

It’s after 10 in the evening and I am just getting to this.  Its becoming a bad habit I know.

Today was a day of cleaning.  I clean my house every weekend but today I cleaned the other stuff.  The fridge, under the stove, the inch of dust of the open shelves.  The amount of dirt in my home amazes me but I guess it shouldn’t.  People are always in this space living, children playing, life moving onward and this my friends produces lots of dirt.  So my husband did a craft with the kids and supervised a few matches on the Wii so I could plow through the big dirt.  Hopefully the worst of the dust and germs are done.  I could spend all day, everyday cleaning up fingerprints and slobber marks from around this house!

Tonight I went to see Remember Me.  I enjoyed it so much!! I have to admit that I only went because I totally wanna bang Rob Pattinson but I actually enjoyed the story and the chance to see his acting chops outside of Edward Cullen.  I guess I already knew he could act from some of the other little movies he did prior to Twilight but I really enjoyed his role of Tyler.  So I recommend you go see it but also that you do not read any reviews beforehand for fear of spoilers. Go in blind and feel the raw emotion of it as it happens.

Well its late so I shall go to bed, hope you have a great nights sleep!

Exclusive Images of Baby Nessie

I am happy to report that I have the first exclusive photo’s of Edward Cullen’s first born child.  Last month rumors circulated that an unknown women was pregnant when she married the beautiful shiny Volvo driver.  Much speculation was floating around as to the truth of the wedding pictures and some scoffed that it was clearly photo shopped.  In an impromptu interview the whore  lovely Mrs Cullen she told us of the whirlwind romance between her and her hubby and how the recent documentary Twilight has thrown them into the public eye.

After our talk she invited me to take a quick tour of their new cottage,  previously owned by the notorious Barbie.  No longer are the days of wild parties with Barbie and her cousin from Malibu by the poolside.  This home is now the quiet family retreat for Edward, Nessie and his new bride.

Edward was the attentive father as he fetched baby Nessie after her afternoon nap.

After bath time Edward enjoys a moment with his daughter while the country air drys her skin naturally.

So I am happy to report that things at the Cullen’s appear to be as normal as can be expected.  although Edward has found all the attention his family is receiving alittle overwhelming he feels that it was about time that the truth about vampires came out.  since the release of the documentary Twilight Edward has found a good friend in vampire Bill Compton**and they share a common ground in the cross species love interests. 

** Bill Compton is a vampire from the successful series TRUE BLOOD featured on HBO and in Canada The movie Network. It will be going into its second season in the fall of 2009.

Edward Cullen gets his drink on!

OK so after an hour passes I have managed to get some pictures off my camera and onto my clunker for you. 

So Monday night was TWILIGHT night around my house. Admittedly we have a Twilight night once a week but this one was alittle different because we had good friends and good food to go with it.  After much planning for the event (OK I made 4 phone calls the afternoon before) I sent out a quick text to pocket Edward to see if he was available to attend.  He text me back and said that he had no pressing appointments on a Monday night and was only planning to hang out in his designated spot on top of the fridge.  So I could count him in.  I had him come over early so he could help me mix up some drinks.  Having existed all these years he makes a great cocktail!

Edward told me that he will only use Bacardi  products with the Kitchen Aid blender so I rushed off to the local Price chopper to stock up. I don’t question Edward on anything, nor should you.  I was going to invite him along but I have a fear that someone I know may see me there and then rumors will spread about my sanity ( people think carrying a 9 inch Edward around is odd?? I know lots of people carrying around 9 inches of plastic in their purse……of course there’s takes batteries and doesn’t look like a vampire God)  Anyway I rushed home and Edward helped me find the perfect mix of citrus carbonated lemonade, ice, rum and mix. I really don’t know what I would do without him!edwardbaquardi

We finished up just in time for girls night.  The doorbell rung and Edward knew that it was time to get his drink on with the ladies!  Always the gentleman he laughed and smiled as everyone came in.  Pouring ice cold daquari’s and making jokes about the drinks being “ice cold like him”  ( too bad we couldn’t devour him like we did the drinks).

When we moved downstairs to watch the movie on the flat screen he politely excused himself. Pocket Edward, just like Rob has a hard time watching the movie. He told me it is even harder to watch on blue ray because everything is so clear, more so with his vampire eyes.  So he retired up stairs to his spot on the fridge. I did offer to let him sleep in the Country cottage as Barbie appears to be vacationing in the basement with 300 of her naked friends. He smiled crookedly at me and said that the fridge would be fine. Such a quality gentleman.

So we ate, we drank, we where merry.  I got alittle outta hand and perhaps rowdy with Pocket Edward out of sight.  My inner fangirl kept calling for his pants to disappear during the movie but alas it never happened. Wish that was in the extended version.  All and all a good night for me though I am tired today.

LIfe as we know it

So it would seem that life as I know it is about to end.  It is with great sadness I report on the pending death of my laptop which is so sick it may possibly pass on to the other side rest its poor little hard drive. Only in my house could this happen, others can purchase things and have it last years but in Castle Blackmore this is not an option.  All electronics are required to be destroyed by children within a 3 year window (the laptop lasted a year and a half).  So it appears that I will be shopping for a new one in the future should the tax man bless us with some sort of refund (fingers crossed)

SO  tonight is TWILIGHT night! I am very happy about that because any excuse to gawk at Rob’s gorgous face leaves me all warm and tingly (hee hee) Another of my friends has been recruited over to the world of Bella and Edward and to celebrate we must pull ot the blue ray and watch it on the flatscreen (as Bella would say) Not that it has been away for long. I watched the film with the commentary on this weekend. Poor husband had to sit through it again. I did find it funny though, Rob sure loves to bash on himself!

So my group of Twigals are over tonight to drink blood red daquari’s, eat brie cheese, chili dip, other yum yums and whatever amazing dessert Z brings!  Its all good, can’t think of a better way to start off the week that’s for sure!

Whats with the hate?

1. I really miss my laptop.

2. I really hate the basement clunker cira 1990

Ok now that I have that out of the way and can move on to today’s topic of ramble. I have a limitted time frame to do this as a small boy is eyeing me in a stinky sort of way and I fear for my life should he not get to access Webkinz’s in the next 15 minutes (if there’s no post tomorrow send help!) 

To start with I thought for humors sake I would leave in all the mistakes that this stupid keyboard will create.  SOme keys are so looose you get a dozen of the letter and others stick cuz they are so hard. Did I mention I hate this computer 🙂

SO the big debate today is why are there people who have to hate on someone just because the have a passion for something?   When poking around on this and other blog sites it is easy to find someone complaining about the phunomonon (ok that ones on me) of Twilight and Rob Pattinson.  I guess if you are one of those people who have not found an attraction to the books or the characters then you may not understand. Hell I am one of those people and I still wonder what happened to my sanity.  I did not wake up one morning and think, ” Boy, I sure wish I could find a man 15 years younger than me who I can obsess over, buy action dolls of and smile at his face in a poster when doing laundry”  I am almost positive that no grown women woke up on any given day and thought this. If she did then she truly is a nutcase who should be committed! However I have it on good authority that there are tons of us out there. SOme hide it away from family and friends and like a dirty little secret. Others are semi out of the closet (like me) and people know about it. The last group are at one with it, these are the ones who take Pocket Edward to the grocery store and let him sit up front in the cart, let him know and enter the secret pin at the ATM while glaring at that teenager who is looking on longingly at her 6 inches of Edward joy.  Ok I have to admit that although I am on the crazy bus for Edward and all things Rob Pattinson I don’t think I will ever be able to commit myself this completely (because my family will lock me away) I have been unable to take my P.E out and about with me for fear of the looks I may recieve. I worry that this makes me a “weaker fan” but then I remember that I don’t want to eat jello at the crazy farm each day and that helps me get on with things.

SO I just accept it, I never asked for it, I do not understand the nature of the beast that lives within me. It just is what it is.

To sum it up in the words of a wise man. MIne it not to question what makes you hot. MIne is to take advantage of the fact that you are hot!

One Week

So this post should really have a great picture of Joshua Jackson to start it off, but as I mentioned yesterday I am working on the basement clunker circa 1990 and the thought of asking her to upload a picture frightens me deeply.  So alias we have no photo.

Last Friday night I went with a friend to see this great new film that Joshua Jackson stars in ONE WEEK.   It worked out great as we had the midnight Twilight DVD release thing to do and did this movie first. For me this is an absolutely brilliant night as I got to see both my favorite men at once (sorry honey). I’m sure there’s some sick twisted porn script hidden in the recesses of my mind for that one.

Last month we went to see Confessions of a shopaholic and when we purchased our tickets they gave us these little postcards advertising the upcoming film ONE WEEK. I was very excited about that. Then in the previews there was an interview with Josh about this film and also a preview. This made me giddy with delight. Promotional stuff for a movie with J.J! I have always believed that Joshua is an excellent actor. I don’t expect him to become the next Brad Pitt, nor do I think that given the chance it is something he would want for himself. Rather he is more the type of actor interested in participating in roles that he feels matter rather than what will pull in the big money.  I am a dedicated fan and so have all his work on DVD should anyone wish to borrow one. 

When I got home I told my husband about it ( he went to film school back when this computer was cutting edge technology) and he mumbled something about it being Canadian, which translates into crap that won’t get any recognition ( needless to say that he does not work in the Canadian film industry, or any other film industry for that matter). This bothers me. I know its true as I watched it happen with a show I watched years ago. They taped the same episode’s twice, one version was with the story in Canada and the other was filmed here but made to look like it was in the USA. Guess which one bombed?  How stupid is that!

So the  film ONE WEEK is another example of Joshua picking a role of substance.  As is the case with many of his films Josh plays the lead character (Ben Tyler) and 90% of movie is carried by him. Ben is a young Canadian man with cancer, he is engaged, he is a writer, he is an unsatisfied teacher, he is a man who is lost. Ben decides to ride a motorbike west across Canada for an adventure before receiving any sort of treatments.  The rest of the story follows him on his journey across our countries provinces while he evaluates his life dreams, values and beliefs.  It shows a great deal of scenery which is beautiful and makes the audience really appreciate the beauty of Canada.  I found myself thinking about the possibility of taking my own family off to see other parts of our land.  

 The story is narrated in parts which adds a whimsical charm to the story at times, be it a laugh , a tug at the heartstrings or even a tear. It is a beautifully balanced story of a man who seeks to find himself. 

I went into this experience expecting exactly what I got from Joshua Jackson. He always gives his all to his characters and his natural charm will always pull me in.  My only fear was that because the character of Ben had cancer he would die, or be very sick which in turn would upset me, make me cry and eventually would lead to a headache . My friends biggest fear was that Ben would die and she said she didn’t want to see him die, that would upset her. Yet we both went in knowing that could be the case.

So you wonder what happened? Well I can’t tell you that because then you would have no reason to go and see this film.As it is Canadian the only way it will be recognized is if people like us go see it and validate its worth.

What I can tell you is that I left the theatre thinking deeply about my own life and reflecting on the decisions that have lead me to today. That my friends is the power to make you think. No big budget full of  big booms, no hot sex or extreme sexual tension but yet it holds more power than any special effects explosives could. 

Take a risk on a Canadian film, support our industry, enjoy our landscape, savor a moment that makes you think. Seek out a theatre playing ONE WEEK .   You will waste $12.50 on anything else right? well invest it into this experience and don’t forget to let me know what you think of it!

Guess who’s back?

So my title leaves me humming Slim Shady “Guess who’s back? back again, guess who’s back tell a friend…..” OK some will get it and some won’t get it, depends if you like rap full of profanity. Ironically the PTA mom is down with all that.

OK so the computer made it back through the front door and after 10 minutes of “quality time” with my kids its totally screwed again. Gotta love kids, if it can be broken they will break it! So I am reduced to the dinosaur of a clunker in the basement. It moves remarkably slow, takes 10 minutes to load a new page and the monitor is going so the colors are all off.

This people is the dedication I offer to you the reader. I willwork on a total piece of shit in order to attempt to provide you with a simple smile, if lucky a little giggle. I love you all and you may reward me with comments or cheques in denominations over $100 🙂

So in my week of  baroness I had to rely on merely my blackberry for contact with the world. I have no idea how I ever functioned with my crappy little flip phone but I know that there is no going back for me now.  There was once a time long long ago in another universe when I did not have access to the Internet ( I also smoked, was childless, had no grey hair and weighed 1000lbs less) and now my day is not started until I have assessed my e mail and stopped into my favorate site for the Robsessed perverted stalker like type ( that would be over at letterstorob) how I would make it through the day without the wit and laughs I find there I do not know. Thanks Girls!

Anyway as much as I have to share with you all I have to cut this short, little people are demanding some food and I fear if I do not co operate they make seek vengence which in childspeak means it is time to break something. This would be bad because my pocket Edward is out and should his head be ripped off I will require medication to function for the rest of my years.

So this is it, I will return again tomorrow to share many of the thoughts I have had in my absence including my thoughts on the Twilight DVD, my review of Joshua Jackson’snew movie ONE WEEK,  why men totally suck and I am sure there will be some ramblings about my beautiful Rob too.  Don’t forget to tune in to the craziness!

Breaking Dawn: Fan made video

So yesterday I learned how to add videos to my blog and it was very easy. So I will now have an onslaught of Youtube videos that I like alot.  This one is for Breaking Dawn. If you live under a rock and have yet to read this book then I don’t recommend watching it or the book is ruined ( and shame on you for not reading it yet)

This is a great one……

I had a dream……

robert_pattinson2

Once in awhile I get to have a great dream. I mean the kind of dream that leaves you smiling all day long no matter if the dog pukes, your husband gets laid off, the kids break the Royal Albert and the fish dies.

 I have had that dream and it was the best no sex dream I have ever had.  One reason is was great was because I had my kick ass body back from 1995 (yeah I know I should accept it is gone) and the other was that the beautiful Robert Pattinson was my co star. 

It was a very PG type dream, I met Rob at some function he was at trying to hide from the press and talked to him casually about all things not related to Twilight. I pretended that I didn’t know who he was and made no referance to the fuss about him.  We went with a group of people (who really have no importance) to a really nice restaurant that was quiet. We entered from the back door and were seated in the back corner.  He was pretty quiet and seemed like he was trying to remain inconspicious.  He seemed to relax when no one talked about Twilight or his status in the world.  He went over to the bar and was ordering a drink when he was spotted. He looked so sad, put on his best smile for the camera and laughed . He glanced briefly at our table and then exited the way we came in. The waiter came over and told us,” the gentleman offers his apologies for his abrupt departure and asks that you enjoy the remainder of you meal. The bill has already been taken care of”.  I remember thinking that it was so sad that he had to live like that.  Someone then commented that they couldn’t believe that I had remained so calm and collected around him. I laughed it off.

I woke up so happy that morning.  I may need to seek proffessional help soon.

Eclipse: Fan made video

Yeah I know I’m addicted………

I have to admit that although I am excited ( like a piglet at its mommas teet) to see New Moon it is really Eclipse I’m waiting for. I don’t need to explain my reasoning as most will already understand it without words. However for those who don’t it’s ALL ABOUT EDWARD!!!  New Moon will only be a tease for all us hot bothered fan-mas, just a shot glass of ice cold water on a hot day. Hopefully Eclipse will give us the big gulp that we really are wanting for.  I know it is crazy to love a fictional character, equally as crazy to love an unobtainable man 15 years younger than you.  However in my defence  I can state that today, UC and Moon (over at LTR ) didn’t post anything I wrote in the Crazy People Letters so I think I’m good to go.  So apart from the getting even older part of waiting for this film I am waiting in anticipation. Sweet ice cube cold anticipation………….
