Worth a mention, good for a laugh

TGIF…it’s a “feature” day at BD@BS!! Some of these are the first blogs I read; some are new. How profound! Soooo…on with the sideshow!

Catch The Bullet: where anything goes – Came across this one a few times on link exchangers and I thought the design and content were good.
Bad News Blonde – Some language might not float with some people…but what do I care?
Breakup Babe – One of my first reads, right along with many of the “girl perspective” sites I read. I am so learning about the female psyche…you have no idea. (riiiiight)
All Things Dunkin’ Donuts – This might be a repeat…did I ever talk about this? I LOVE IT!

I don’t develop my film

For those old school folks that do not have a digital camera, you know all about film. For those of you that have no idea what film is, you are from Mars. I don’t care if you haven’t used a 35mm camera in years -hell if you have ever used one. Almost everyone that has bought a disposable camera or shot a roll of film at some point in their life forgot to get it developed.

Not long ago when I was cleaning my room –a regular pastime– I found a box with xis [6] rolls of film. Three had not been developed yet…hmm hidden treasures! It was like opening a box you put away long ago to find some old newspaper clippings, clothes, papers from school, letter from a friend…letter from a lover; it brought a smile and some hope. Hope?

Hope. When you open a letter you thought you misplaced, you find an old photo album…you find that journal you thought you lost…a piece of you holds hope in the memories you are about to relive will be remembered just as yesterday.

I took my lost rolls of film to get developed, along with three other rolls I needed to get developed. I was happy to find that not only on the lost rolls, but the original three rolls I had lost moments I had completely forgotten about. A formal here; a day with friends there. Pictures from my trip to New York, skydiving and backpacking…many moments I never even knew I captured.

The next time you clean out your room, attic, garage, car…an old shoebox. Look for something that might have been lost, but now is found. You never know what memories and moments it might reveal.

“[Memory is] a man’s real possession…In nothing else is he rich, in nothing else is he poor.”

My Seduction Style

My Seduction Style: The Natural. Or so I am told..err have tested as. Interesting and I would say I think it is mostly true. Mostly? Yes. I don’t see many people being seduced by me and I sure as hell do not see people dropping their guard around me. Then again, maybe I’m blind and I don’t know it…

The Natural
You don’t really try to seduce people… it just seems to happen. Fun loving and free spirited, you bring out the inner child in people. You are spontaneous, sincere, and unpretentious – a hard combo to find! People drop their guard around you, and find themselves falling fast.

What Is Your Seduction Style?

Movie Review #1

Closer

What a great warm-fuzzy type of movie. So last night I watched this movie with a few friends and I was amused that one of my friends had labeled it as a “chick flick”…oOOooo no, this is a good old fashion family movie my friend. Between the lies, cheating, sex, stripping, yelling and swearing you would never know it was rated R.

The plot? Think bizarre love “square” [nix triangle] meets pathological liars anonymous. I recall many movies, friends relationships…and hell even my relationships where each scene connects well with some personal memory pocket. If you have ever been cheated on or cheated on someone, you’ll feel that same lump in your stomach or guilt…or maybe you’ll feel nothing…that you felt when it happened to you. Natalie Portman plays along side Jude Law for the young and puppy-love type of relationship while Julia Roberts and Clide Owenhave a twisted sexual funny-meeting type of relationship.

One of my favorite scenes is when Clide Owen is confronting Julia Roberts about sleeping with Jude Law and he says something to the effect [NOTE: this is a wee bit graphic]:

Clide: Did you like his c**k in your mouth!?
Julia: Yes!
C: Did you like it when he c**e on your face!?
J: Yes!
C: What did he taste like!?
J: Only you but sweater!!
C: Now that’s the spirit!

Are you kidding me!?!? AWESOME. I know it’s raw and raunchy, but I loved it. There are many scenes in the movie on par with that moment, so it might not be for the easily offended.

Amidst all this sarcasm I truly did enjoy the film and I know I’ll be buying the DVD.

I can’t recall (nor find) if I have done a movie review before; where I titled it “Movie Review”…so this is numero uno! On with the new category!

Really? I thought I was hungover with a dash of heartburn. Actually, I didn’t drink yesterday, but I did have some pizza a little later then usual…ah fooey, I think it’s passion. We’ll see if I come up with anything this afternoon then I can judge if this one is dead on or dead wrong.

You’ve been trying to figure out what that feeling is all day. You woke up with it this morning and you just can’t shake it. Well, don’t be surprised if you realize that it’s quite familiar to you. It’s called passion, and it doesn’t just apply to someone you find seriously attractive. There are all kinds of passion. You’re experiencing the whole range, and you’ll keep feeling it all day long. Use this gift wisely.
