Sloppy Slurpees and the Cure

So, with the weather been so hot, there has been many a slurpee in my life...not only in my life but on my hand, down shirt and to my foot. I mean, come on, how old am I? It never fails...when I'm fixin' a slurpee, I over shoot and it explodes all over the place. I stand there feeling like a 10 year old! I'm 32 years old...I should be able to "work this" without having to call in Hazmat. It seems that I'm not the only one with this problem. I've been witness to a few strangers (and Fletcher too) doing the "slurpee shuffle" to keep the rediculously growing overflow from tumbling all over. Oh, and ps...we all know that slurping it quickly do NOT help.

So what are we to do?

Well, after a very deep discussion, Fletcher and I figured it out. The key to the perfect Slurpee - don't get greedy! Simple as that. We've been testing this theroy and its true. So heed my warning... Greed+Slurpee=DISASTER Its the Christian way to drink anyway.


Genetics and Robert Redford

A few things that I know are hereditary:
- detached ear lobs
- ability to roll tongue
- diateties

One thing I didn't know was hereditary:
- favorite movies

Sooo, apparently my favorite movie is one of the most boring movies ever! I've tried to show it to dear friends and they either fall asleep or bail on me before its over. What movie is it you ask? "Out of Africa" ...starring the dreamy Robert Redford and amazing Meryl Streep. Despite the fact that it won 1985 "Best Motion Picture" and a thousand other awards for music and cinematography, only I seem to appreciate and love it so much....that is what I thought until two weeks ago. Apparently, unknown to either of us, "Out of Africa" is also my dad's favorite movie too!!!!! I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT. (I've never felt so close to my papa before.)

Who knew that someone (me) who avoided sad movies based on true stories would deem her all-time favoriate movie as one that was sad and based on true story? I'm messed up. But that is how good this movie really is!!! I'm just saying.

UPDATE: On Sunday, I thought I might torture Fletcher with a view of this same movie. He was ready and willing to prove his love for me by committing 3 hours of his Sunday afternoon this to viewing pleasure. Turns out...HE LOVES THE MOVIE TOO!! And he's not even related to my dad! Okay, I don't think its his favorite movie ever but he loved everything about it. Not only did he stay completely engaged, I think he'd even watch it again with me!!! Lucky him! :)

Another Twiracle!

As fanatics alike were waiting in line on Friday night to purchase the latest book in the Twilight series, I strolled right past them to buy my copy of "New Moon" (2 of 4 for those that have been living in a cave). Thats right...I FINISHED book 1 and loved it. I had to go get the next one right away! I have to say I have Twilight Fever! FINALLY!

The Sunshine Moment of Today!

To delay tackling many work tasks this morning, I thought I'd take a moment to thank my dear friend Lowder. She reminded me dearly of something that I love so much but haven't been paying too much attention to...Chuck Norris-isms. She sent me this one today:

"Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because he only recognizes the element of surprise."

HAHAHAHAHAHA. Boy, did that nearly rid me of that wrist slitting feeling I have today... nearly! Maybe I should take a moment and read a few more of this link:

One of my favorites, and Michelle and Sarah already know this, is "When Chuck Norris gets in a knife fight, the knife loses." LMAO. This stuff is incredible!

I fully admit to watching a snippet (I say a "snippet") of Walker Texas Ranger the other day. Conan fans, you understand me. All others, don't judge me. Now I've got the urge to by me a Total Gym and practice my round house kicks to someone's face. "POW".

Its a Twiracle!

A miracle has happened. For my Twilight obsessed will be very pleased to know that I buckled down and read chapter 13 of Twilight last night. For those that wonder what the big deal is....well I've been stuck on chapter 13 since October 2007. Definitely on the cusp of the clincher of the novel and I have a testimony of this now that I've finished Chapter 13. All I can say is "WOW". I'm totally hooked!!!! Its about time, I know.

On a semi-related note, a dear friend of mine was mouth raped a few years back by a man with a "cold tongue". She's okay for those of you that were worried and we've had a long good laugh about how disgusting that 'cold' must've been but I have to ask after reading Chapter a cold tongue really that gross? I mean, doesn't Edward have one... I'm just saying.

Obama's America

(DISCLAIMER: There is a good chance I may offend a few friends with the following statement however, its not an attack on them personal. Its merely my blog and my American right to free speech as they have theirs. God bless this nation!)

In watching this attached video, my head wants to explode!!! I just want to know how some Americans can support a man with these kinds of hypocrisies? I'm not saying that any candidate isn't without their errors, but there are just way too many scary and unanswered questions about Obama. There are also some very frightening and Marxist things about him that come out of his very own mouth (again, see video for the facts). The foreshadowing of what his presidency and the America he would create is down right horrific! Have we really become a society that will back someone just because of their race, as some have seriously confessed? Or because he's the trendy candidate? Or just because Oprah and all of Hollywood think he is the second coming of the Messiah? Or just because he declares that there will be "hope" and "change"? At one point, Hitler was a "change' but hardly for the better (a major understatement).

I have no candidate to endorse here...except maybe Santa Claus. (How amazing would that be.) I'm just saying that I really pray America is smarter than to elect a man of this caliber, or the lack there of. We've played the trendy/popularity game. Its called high school and that is the place where people vote for the "cool kids". Dancing on Ellen and dawning the cover of Rollingstone isn't the reason to put the trendy guy in the white house. He needs substance, values, and a commitment the principles that this country was founded on. Obama isn't our guy and I say that with total confidence. I do NOT want to live in the America that Obama would create. Watch for yourself and hear it straight from Obama's mouth then you decide:
