Uh, Hmmm, WTF, kinda movie


The movie, 'Swiss Army Man, ' is so strange I can't even tell you if I liked it. It starts out with a man on an island  (allegedly) who is in the process of hanging himself when he spots a man who has washed up on shore. This man is dead, very dead. (Played by Daniel Radcliff)  who farts  and farts  and farts. He has other special powers, unlike Harry Potter.

It's so weird, but it's obvious a lot of money went into the making of this movie. There are some wonderful moments in this film, offset by some almost cringe worthy stuff.

If you ever decide to see it, let me know what you think.

Oh My Darling Croissant


I've got a wee wee crush on you,
That chin, those eyes of azure blue.
Whisper oui, oui, in my waxy ear,
Your frenchy accent is not so clear.
If only I could understand what you say,
Let me by monsewer, I must get near!
We'll walk the park, the champ ellies,
Pour pink champagne down our bellies. 
Emmanuel, my favorite President,
We shall free trade you with WH resident. 
Make this great country chic again,
With perfumed boudoirs and sexy men.
Oh, Macron, I want you so,
No wait, come back, don't go!

One for the Bull


I love animals. Maybe more than people?  If what I say next shocks you, I won't apologize. It's how I feel.  I saw another article about a bullfighter getting gored after taunting a bull.
The bullfighter had no weapons.  The idea, I think, is to taunt, then after bull charges, guy gets on bull's back. Whatever.  It's stupid. It's cruel. It's pointless.  The bullfighter died from injuries, and I feel nothing for him. Bullfighfters are morons. Anyone who watches this, has mental issues. Now, that I have spoken my piece. Peace.

I came home after being away one night. Every damn time I leave for any extended time, I come home to a surprise, and not good ones. Usually,  it's my kitchen ceiling dripping water from the upstairs bathroom.  This time,  before I even entered home, I noticed my outdoor rug was chewed in places.  I open door to find squirrel going nuts (Nice pun) in living room. I kept door open hoping he'd go out. He/She ran in kitchen. I turned thinking to open window, then thought  better because I'm on second floor. Called animal control.  Squirrel was nowhere to be found, which is quite unsettling.  There is a hole in my kitchen ceiling. He/She ruined  my succulents and knocked off my nic nacs from kitchen windowsill trying to get out.  At no time did I taunt squirrel.

So, no, there is no connection to tales either than both are animal stories.

Oh, we also had a kangaroo at large in our community.  Now, that would be something to witness in cheddarland. He ran away from the pumpkin farm, but was caught and penned back with the goats. Weird.

Update:  Finally caught squirrel.  Hopefully the end of that.

Oh, Mother of Gooooooooddddd!

Darn. I was just recently pondering movies that I hide from- mostly kissy, mushy junk. This movie, 'Mother,' is not kissy, mushy. It's more like, gushy, gooey, gross. Have I seen it? Nope. I spent about two hours last night just reading the early previews and the spoilers. Don't worry, I won't tell. Well, much anyway. It's going to be hard to take folks. That's what every critic said. These are people who watch horror movies for a living and this scared them. Not just scared them, made their stomachs turn. Even so, they thought this movie was brilliant. It's thought provoking in its cruelty. Everyone had praise for Javier Bardem and Jennifer Lawrence. I know some day I will watch this. I have to get up the courage to do so. I still have not seen 'Schindler's List,' because I don't think I can handle it. When was that movie made? So, this movie. Someday. Maybe. Director, Darren Aronofsky is unique. He's got a whole lot of nutty and brilliance in that head. I still think of, 'Requiem for a Dream,' and gag. Not really, but it's a movie that stays with you. I hated, 'Black Swan.' Hated, hated. Anyway, I'd love to know if you see it and what you thought.

Not The Ice Guests Expect


Yes, there are differences between what happened with Jews in Germany and what is happening now, in this country. The Jewish Community was living in Germany, legally. They should have had the same rights as every other citizen. Those rights were gradually taken away, until, their very lives were in jeopardy. There were heroes who tried to hide them, or to feed them, whatever they could do to stop the inhumanity. Along with the heroes lived the cowards, the haters, the most vile humans, who would give up children to the powers in charge. This article regarding staff who called in guests to ICE is so despicable, it makes my blood boil. Only cruel and ignorant people would want families separated. Only the lowest form would want a wall built to keep others out. People have crossed a border simply because they want for a better life. To have someone call these people out, is beyond the pale. It is something I cannot comprehend. What is happening in this country is truly evil. But, if you think you will win, you are wrong. There are too many good people who will not let darkness take over. Not in this country. Not in this world.

Much Adildo About Nothing


What is the big stinking deal? Is it because people are watching porn during work hours that has gotten people all up in arms over the 'Like,' Cruz "allegedly" gave some tame porn on Twitter? Cruz says it was some internal screw-up. He sure didn't do it, so he says. Well, someone is doing it, and watching it whilst people are doing it. It's a big business. It's Huuuuuuuuge. Is it wrong to watch it? Jeez, float yer boat, or (fill in metaphor) I wish people would be honest about it. We really are such prudes in this country. Let us not confuse porn with sex crimes, okay? And, after all that, I must admit, it's not my thing. I can't even watch two people kissing passionately. I cover my eyes until they are done. I'm thinking germs and bad breath and having to clean up that mess. But, hey, float yer, dot, dot, dot. We've got loads of things to worry about other than whether some Presidential candidate loser is feeling happy and wanted you to know it. We are now at the climax of this post.

Was it good for you?

Perhaps Ivanka Can Read it to the Creep


Are you going to read Hillary's book?  I might, for free. What is there she can say that we don't already know? I will always have respect for Clinton. I think long, long ago, she did have aspirations of changing this world for the better. Watching her during the debates and witnessing the running of the craziest race for President in my lifetime was jaw dropping, head banging, self medicating, poop.

Can I say surreal? It still feels that way. Sitting at my computer, watching the results as she lost and lost and lost, and Trump won, I was sickened. So, what happened? What could she have done to have become the first woman President? It still is too early to say, in my opinion, but what the heck, here it is.
One thing I did see in her is how smug she became. She was pretty darn sure she had it. I sure thought she did, but I wasn't the one running. She was so sure she'd win Wisconsin, she never even campaigned, here. That was a  mistake.
The e-mails, that was just plain stupid.
Her screaming at times made her look shrill, and fake.
Her illness. Damn, just bad timing, except for the fact she wanted to downplay that bit as if millions of people couldn't tell there was something off with her.
Her husband. He just looks like a beaten down old man.
She is bright, so very intelligent. She has spent her whole life in this wretched circle of kings and pawns, playing a game that involves human beings. Loads of people did not even vote.

Even after I have pondered this, I still cannot believe she lost without some hanky-panky going on.

But, at this point we don't know.

That's my opinion. Now, I think I'd really like to read her book after all, and hopefully in ten years, she'll write another. One where all her bitterness and hurt is gone, and the truth will come out.

Klever and Kute Kids


Boy, this article sure is relative to my life. Speaking of relative... bah dum bum... my granddaughter (Forgive me for my discretion. I know many people hate it when bloggers talk about their kids and other falling apples) This is why kids are so much fun. They are so clever and don't care whether something is politically correct, or, wrong, or stupid, or, will make them the talk of the day. My Moon Pi likes to hide my stuff. The scary part is how good she is at claiming she had nothing to do with it. I start to worry about my own sanity. My own grandchild is gas lighting me. Usually, I can find items in a short time, although, I'm still looking for the dang remote for the fairy lights. It's a shame we as adults can't walk around with whoopee cushions on our feet, or do somersaults our jammies, or hide all the carrots. When does being cute turn to being a tad touched in the head? Sigh.







Kids are F-U-N.

*Disclaimer: Kids can also be a pain in the arse. Take each day you are given with them with humor and wine. (wine after they are gone!)

It Was A Right Gobsmacker!


I'm sure there are other things to post about other than Trump, Harvey and Irma. How about, George?

George Smith (probably not his real name) got the first DUI ticket in England, in 1897. He was a cabbie who hit a building. History.com says so, although they are skimpy on the details. I'm going to assume George Smith or whatever his name was, had been sitting in a pub, drinking warm ale, whilst singing, 'Ding Dong, Merrily on High.' He stumbles out of the pub cause his old lady is coming to get him (word from the dirty streets of London) and gets in his fancy schmancy roadster with a boot in the back. Whilst going twenty miles per hour, he sees the Queen hitching a ride to the Tower. In fact, George was not driving that day. Victoria demanded she take over the wheel. As she had never driven before, she plowed into the Tower and a beefy bobby came along and bobbed George 25shillings.

Go ahead, try and disprove it.

Never Saw A Fat Man Run So Fast


Don't worry folks, in one of my posts, I urged you all to leave your homes and get out of harm's way.

According to Rush, it's all hyperbole. Those dang weather people just want to frighten you about climate change. Tsk, tsk.

As for Rush, he hauled his arse and smelly cigar breath to parts unknown, far away from those fake hurricanes, I'm sure.

No Wizards, Here, My Pretty



We make decisions and choices our whole lives. I would assume we try and choose what we do for the betterment of our lives.

So,why then, do people choose to stay in a situation that could end their life? I'm talking about Irma and this woman's choice to ride it out. She says she has been through this before.  I doubt that. Even so, are you going to play out your life as if on a game show?  Spin that wheel, will you live through the night? Sorry, no money, folks and if you do survive, your material stuff will be gone. Oh, and not to mention your post traumatic stress after this.

I completely understand there are people who are old, disabled, poor. Getting out is going to be difficult. Still...

I don't drive. I have two wonky knees. Money is tighter than (insert yet own words)

Still... I'm going to pack a bag, a pillow, some snacks and start walking. 

I don't like when authorities say if you stay, tough tootsies, we're not going to help, but, it's true. Like  Blanche Dubois, you are going to have to rely on the kindness of strangers, just like the stayers of Harvey. 

What I'm getting at is, leave, leave, leave. By hitching, biking, walking. 

Just go.
