I hope everyone had a great Halloween.
I love handing out the candy and seeing the little ones in costume.
My favorite are the ones that are 3-6 yrs old. They are so excited. They love showing me their costume, and I had one little boy about 5, sing me the whole "Trick or Treat" song. You know the one that says, "Trick or Treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat"….
I watched some movies between answering the door. I saw, Spider man 3, and License to Wed.
Spider man 3 was not my favorite of the series, but it was OK. I have a problem with Toby being Spidey. He has a "Jack Nicholson" type of persona. I never really believe that either one is feeling anything real, and Toby would do better in movies where he plays some kind of perverted psycho. He always has this weird look in his eyes. (Just my opinion)
License to Wed, was funny, but, I found myself really wanting to hurt Mandy Moore’s character. From an older woman’s point of view, she was self centered, controlling and suuuuch a stupid little witch!
Here she has a guy who’s easy going and laid back, and she doesn’t appreciate it until some of her family and her best friend tell her to. She wasn’t even smart enough to come to the conclusion herself.
Robin Williams and the little kid who plays as his ‘side-kick’ were funny, although, having a Priest being a mentor to a young boy…. well…
The other night I rented, "Transformers" and I liked it. My boys were huge fans and I would watch the cartoons with them. The movie didn’t really stick to much from the cartoon, but it was a fun, escapist, blow things up, wise crackin, type movie.
I admit it, some times I enjoy a good mindless, "blowing things up, shooting everything that moves, tough guys who should be dead after the beating they took, but, no, they get up and keep going", type of movies.
On a totally different note…
I finally found a gentleman who does drywall. This house was a rental before we bought it, and had some holes in the walls that my children, animals and grandson have made much bigger (and added a few of their own). This man comes highly recommended and has been in the business for over 30 years.
I finally got him to stop by and take a look at the damage… (and this is what I love about living in a small town) I have about 8 holes to repair, and some of them are huge! I just had my 3 yr old grandson spend the week with me. He not only made some bigger, but, I’m going to have to make sure I get all the toys (food, marbles, lego’s, hot wheels, candy, etc. etc…) out of the wall before the guy starts fixing them! lol
He took a look at all of them and told me it would be no problem to get them all fixed.
He then went on to say that IF I was willing to wait and have him work me into his schedule when he could get to them that he would be willing to do them for me in return for me making him some goodies!
I love people who are into the whole barter system. lol
I said YES!
I snagged the video below from DragonBoy. I LOVE these guys (Flight of the Conchords) they are from New Zealand. The second one is an old favorite… you may want to turn it down if there are children around. Enjoy!
Here’s hoping everyone has a great week. BIG HUGS, Steph
