amulbunny... i LOVE your list! hahahaha.

I laughed out loud at your last one: More Ikea than I need! with the decorating one.

I might disagree with you i think on Russell Crowe. I loved him too much in Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man. But you are so right on with Tom Cruise. I can't believe i forgot about him. The only movie i liked with him recently was the Ben Stiller one where you didn't know it was him at all because he was bald. What the hell name was that movie anyway?

i called you Amanda by mistake even as i was looking at your photo! hahahaha. Thank you Amy! That's it. Tom Cruise was so funny in that role. I didn't realize it was him until halfway through the movie.

I just watched Silver Linings Playbook and I was so disappointed. In the book (which was not great but better than the movie) Kenny G sets him off on rages. When he is delusional, Kenny G appears playing his clarinet. And they changed that in the movie..arrggg..I totally get it.. Kenny G would make me irrationally angry as well.

reading books by these authors:
1. Danielle Steel
2. Nicholas Sparks
3. Bill O'Reilly

... watching movies that stars these actors:
1. Sly Stallone (I watched Rocky and couldn't understand a word he said)
2. Arnold
3. Chuck Norris

... eating these foods:
1. Canned cranberry sauce
2. Beans of any kind except green..I love green beans.
3. chili

...getting into these conversations:
1. I will talk about anything even if I shouldn't.

...listening to music by this artist:
1. Kenny G. (see above)
2. Most heavy metal
3. Most rap...except Pitbull which without him I could not be able to do Zumba...

...saying these words:
1. GWB was a good president (Furline might but I won't)
2. Jesus is the reason for the season!

...wearing this:
1. a bathing suit around anyone I know
2. Heels over 4 inches (although I got some platforms this year..I might have to overcome this)
3. a tatoo

...putting this on my car:
1. Anything - I still regret putting a "Georgia Mom" on my window..I still can't get it off. I even took off my obama/biden sticker because I really hate all stickers/decals/etc..I don't even like personalized plates. I don't care who you like, support, just don't get in my way.

jojo cucina cucina said...

susieatl....i LOVE this:
...getting into these conversations:

Yeah, i know about the Kenny G. I figured that Kenny G gets that it's an ironic joke in the book about his horrible music and wouldn't allow his music to be used.

Re: Fox news. My youngest brother Troy called me Friday because he said he needed to vent.
He works for Northwest Housing Development which is cool in that they are like a Habitat for Humanity and they build houses for low income folks where the families have good credit and have to put in so many hours a week to help. He's the construction manager. Since the market slowed down they started going into rehab homes instead for now.

Apparently on Friday he was putting in a floor for a couple who had Fox News on ALL DAY LONG really loud and he said not only that they were the kind of assholes who shout at the TV and they did that alot ranting against Obama. On his way home he called me, it was a beautiful rare sunny day and he said this couple just ruined his day. I asked him if he ever said anything and he said no he just kept his head down and worked.

This couple doesn't get that it's Obama who is provided the funding for this assistance. And it's the Republicans who are likely to take it away. I wish Troy could have shown him the photo on his Facebook page where he is holding a giant million dollar check signed by Obama.

I think my torture under those circumstances would be keeping my mouth shut. Anyway i cracked up that he called me to vent. But that's likely because my other brother is a Republican, though he is moderate (and voted Obama last election) and doesn't watch Fox News.

Today my covered patio thermometer says 88 degrees! We cannot believe this weather.

I ran 10 miles this morning with my young girl Katie. We started at 10: 15 and it was 81 when we got back 1 hour 44 minutes later. I LOVE this!

susieatl, what have you been reading lately? I'll probably bring this up again in my next blog post, but i went back to " Life of Pi" and LOVED it. I just had to get to the part when the boat sank. I rarely give a book 100 pages but i was glad i did. Course i do love a good survival story!

jojo cucina cucina said...

OK, coming tomorrow a new post. I have an idea written down somewhere. I hope i can find it.

jojo cucina cucina said...

i really hated my job today, dealing with irrational disgruntled teachers and i realize how much i need to get away from this district. I kept my cool but it took a toll and now i'm in too bad of a bad mood and so i'm not going to change this just yet.

louielouie said...

I predict changing it will improve your mood

louielouie said...

I'm counting on a shower to improve mine.

jojo cucina cucina said...

Youre right! I changed it without even thinking about menytioning them again as i was randomly writing.
