Fright Night Remake

I loved the original Fright Night movie and was irritated when I heard they were re-making this classic movie. The original is my all time favorite movie and I don't care what anyone says, Chris Sarandon is the ultimate vampire and no one will be able to replace him.

Now that being said, after watching this trailer I have changed my mind *yeah, I'm allowed to do that* and from the looks of the trailer it seems this isn't going to be a word for word remake of the original, which I am really glad about. I'm kinda looking forward to seeing this movie, because truthfully it looks pretty good and if I'm not comparing it to the original but watching it as a stand alone movie...I'll probably like it. Check out the trailer:

I'm a Winner!

I've been reading all sorts of books, even ebooks that I have won. Since I don't have an ereader like a Kindle or Nook, so I read all the ebooks I get on my computer. But I really don't mind, I'm going to be on my computer anyway, may as well read a book I've won and enter a few more contests.

I've been on a roll lately winning on some of the blog contests that I entered. Recently I have won:

2 books from Hanging with Bells

1 Book from Sizzling Hot Books

6 Books from When Midnight Comes

I also won a mystery prize from Shiloh Walker's Forum

And I won a mystery prize from Heidi Betts Yahoo group

I'm so excited ya'll, I can't wait to get all these books in the mail and start reading. It's been a very good week for me.

Family Heirlooms

I recent blog post on another blog got me thinking about the things we keep from our families. Most of us have some sort of family heirloom from grandparents or parents. It also got me thinking because my mother in law recently passed away and my sister in law sent my hubby some of her things. My mother in law loved wolves so hubby was sent some of the wolf pictures and plaques she had on her walls and some of her jewelry. Our daughter was given some of her jewelry and I know she will treasure the jewelry as much as I treasure my own grandmothers that I have had for years.

I ended up being the keeper of the pictures in my family. Since I was about 12 years old everyone in the family has been giving me the pictures to keep and now I have about 30 photo albums. I also have things of my grandparents, uncles and aunts and parents that they all gave me.

Sometimes I look at things and realize that it was my grandmothers or grandfathers and it brings back a lot of good memories for me. I have a geode sitting on my shelf that my grandfather found over 90 years ago. He was a rock hound and found this rock and broke it open to find this really pretty greenish blue rock inside it. He polished it and gave it to my dad who gave it to me. I don't know what kind of stone is inside the rock, it kind looks like turquoise, but I have no idea.

My daughter is funny because she'll look at something in the apartment and tell me, I get that when you die. LOL I say, Yep, but I'm not dead yet.

Not Funny

You ever have one of those days where it seems like everything you do is just wrong? Where no matter what you do it seems like you just can't catch a break and something goes wrong? Yeah, me too. I hate it when that happens and it seems to happen to me much to often. It's really starting to mess with my mind.

Sometimes it feels like life is playing one big joke on me after another. Well Universe, I'm no longer laughing.

This stuff just isn't funny anymore. Things keep happening that I have no control over and it seems to mess everything up for weeks.

Case in point, my mailman has once again not delivered my mail when he was supposed to. I didn't get one of the bills for the month and a check I sent in for another bill never got to them. So once again I am having to complain to USPS about my mail not get delivered to the right place and once again they tell me it's not their fault. I am so sick of this. They are the mail! They are supposed to get the mail to where it's going and they are getting paid good damn money to do this.

I always pay my bills each month, always have. But now I had to call my electric company and tell them I never got the bill, that's why the payment was late. And when I tried to order a movie on Pay Per View and couldn't because they telephone company said I hadn't paid my bill I was way like, The hell you say! I sent in a check 2 weeks before it was due...but yet again they didn't get it. Which meant I had to cancel the check..$30.00, pay with a check by phone $10.00 fee and have a blemish to my spotless record...I'm pissed and there's really nothing I can do except start paying all my bills online.

I'm just waiting for the next shoe to drop...because I know it will, something else will go wrong this week...I can feel it.

My Week So far...

Yesterday ken went back to the orthopedist and the cast on his arm was taken off and the pins holding the bones together were pulled out. His arm is healed but it's going to take a little time for the stiffness to go away. I'm just glad it healed.

I published three more articles and you can see them over on the right hand side of this blog where it says my name and Associated Content. How To Treat Bumblefoot in Rats in one of the articles recently published. if you read my published articles, let me know what you think of them. I love comments.

It seems that all this time I've been thinking a cold I had last month was just lingering on was actually a sinus infection. I'm now taking antibiotics and hopefully they will get rid of it so I can finally stop coughing every two seconds.

Yesterday my daughter and I watched The Exorcist for the umpteenth time. But it's such a classic movie I never get tired of it. Afterwards I put on Se7en, but that movie didn't go over as well with her. She thought it was boring even though I love this movie.

That's all the updates I have for now.

Our fan for the computer tower lol

Here's some pictures of how Ken fixed our computer and made a fan for it.

Computer Woes

yet again here I am about to tell you how my computer has something wrong with it. This time it's the Power supply which keeps one of the fans running. Two nights ago all of the sudden a red light started flashing on the tower of my computer and an alarm went off.

If was like. Danger Danger, Danger..

It turns out the back fan wasn't working and the motherboard got reaaaaaally hot. So Ken opened it up and cooled it off. Turned it off and after it cooled down, started it back up. worked. So Ken made a makeshift fan for the back of the tower for now. We will have to buy a new Power supply when we get paid.

Missing Blog Posts

So Blogger did something and now my post is missing. I know not a whole lot of people read my blog and we already know how much I love House, so I am not going to re-write the whole blog post. I know carol had commented on that blog post *Hi Carol* Waves...:)

I love House too! I can't wait to see what he does exactly..I guess this might teach him not to mess with experimental drugs in the future...Oh who am I kidding...He'd do it He's just that crazy.

So this week...Smallville ends with a 2 hour series finale. I can hardly beleive it. I love that show and think it should have had some more years on the air. Especially when stupid shows like 2 and a half men are still on the air. grrr.

At least Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries will be back next season. I hope they don't get rid of those two great shows anytime soon. That would really suck.

The other shows I am really liking right now are Criminal Minds and Law and order SVU...I have watched so many episodes of these shows I could probably kill my entire neighborhood and get away with it. Not that I'm thinking of that ot anything. *Just in case the FBI has me on a watch list* lol

Now the last show I am really liking is has been on for a few seasons and every show is pretty interesting.

I am a little upset that Stargate Universe was cancelled because I really think that show could ahve gone places...*Get it? They are in outter space..they could have gone I crack myself up*

I don't know how many other people love this show as much as I do, but I have been watchign House since it first came on. I love sarcastic characters on tv. Some of the other sarcastic characters that I also liked have been Roseanne, Becker, and now House.

This show impresses me each week, because they have him doing some of the craziest things and he almost awlays saves the patient...almost always.

But I saw the preview for next weeks episode and was shocked. They are going to have him operate on himself...Who the hell does that? Okay since I had an abscess a couple of weeks ago and tried to take an exacto knife and dig it out myself, I am the wrong person to be asking that question. LOL

If it hadn't been on my back where I couldn't reach it really well, i would ahve been able to cut myslef open and dig it out and probably stick it up. But since I couldn't get to it easily, that didn't work out for me...So now that I think about it...I can see him doing this...but I doubt it's going to work out the way he thinks it will.

So is anyone else watching House?

My Funny Rats

I looked over at the cage the other morning and saw one of my rats, Hades hiding inside the blanket. So I took a closer look and what he has done is completely covered himself in the blanket and chewed a whole through it so he could poke his head out of it. He laid like this covered in the blanket with his head poking out, for about an hour. How cute is that.

Time to Pamper Yourself

 I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day. I know I did. My hubby and daughter were very sweet and bought me some lotion, perfumes, body wash ect. All of which smells so good. My mom came over for the day and I made some Lasagna and salad. She gave me a pair of really pretty earrings with my Amethyst Birthstone in them. I'm so glad I was born in February because I love Amethyst.

After this summer of wearing sandals and flip flops all day feet are a bit on the rough side. Sorta feel like those leather feet shoes up top. lol

I figured it was about time to start putting on some lotion on my feet and get them in better shape. So I started applying lotion to one foot and then the other..and then stood up in the bathroom to put the lotion away....and BAM! Fell flat on my butt! Because the rugs are out of the know the rugs that I slipped on and broke the toilet...yeah those rugs. So my feet were slippery and I fell on my butt and now my hip hurts again.

I can't win for losing. Thankfully I didn't break a hip..but I think I'll put the other rugs back in the bathroom...not the ones I slipped on but my older sorta ugly pink ones...that is until I buy new ones. lol

Following Through...

Just a little rant today...

I really dislike it when someone tells me they are going to do something and then they don't do what they said they would. Why do some people say they are going to do something or ask for advice and tell you that they are going to take your advice and do what you told them to...and then do the exact opposite of what they said they would do?

Why not just never say outloud that they are going to do it...then they won't prove they can't be trusted to follow through.

Don't tell me you are going to do something if you don't have plans to keep your word. Nothing riles me up faster than a liar.

I broke the toilet!

For those of you that don't know...I slipped and fell on a bathroom rug I had near the toilet and fell on the brand new toilet Ken installed less than 2 months ago. When I fell on it...I broke it! That's right..I broke the toilet. So Ken called our managers and they said they would send another toilet over and Ken agree'd to install this one too. They didn't even charge us for the new toilet. how nice was that? So here are a few pictures of Ken taking out the old toilet that I broke and replacing it...

Here's the toilet that I broke after being taken outside. The broken pice is inside.

Plumber's crack! Ahahahahaha Ken's going to kill me if he ever see's this. *totally worth it!*

Here's Ken taking the old wax ring up and cleaning up the old caulking.

Ken looking at me and telling me I better not break the new toilet. lol

Ken putting a cup underneath the hose that kept leaking even with the water shut off.

Here's the poor toilet that I broke. You can see the huge chunk missing from the bottom.

 See where that missing piece is supposed to be? Yep, I broke it.
