Time warp

I'm excited for the new version of  Beauty and the Beast coming out this Friday. To get into the proper mindset, I decided to watch the earlier version from Disney last night. My husband and I were sprawled out on the couch, and our teenaged daughter was in the recliner. We watched the movie on … Continue reading Time warp

MOVIE REVIEW: Bridget Jones’ Baby

My husband was hoping for a quiet house the other night, so I obliged him by going to the movies. 😀 I've seen and enjoyed the two prior Bridget Jones movies, so I was looking forward to this one. And it was great! Except for one thing.* I loved all the characters, the returning ones … Continue reading MOVIE REVIEW: Bridget Jones’ Baby

From sh*t list to hit list

I have recently written about my evolving taste in movies. That got me thinking about some other things that I like now that I used to hate. Here are a few: Fish. With the exception of canned tuna, I hated fish. This may have stemmed from when I was young and mom made fish sticks for … Continue reading From sh*t list to hit list

Rocky

Recently my husband wanted to see the movie Creed.  I had zero interest in watching it. I expected he knew that and that he would be watching it alone. Somehow, though, we ended up watching it together. I didn’t expect to like it, but guess what! I really did! I thought it was a movie … Continue reading Rocky

Bebe, the Movie

I am working on the idea of making my book One Brave Thing into a movie! Its (probably) only a matter of time before the producers come a-knockin'. After all, other Maine authors have had their books made into movies. 😀 Here's a little bit of what I'm anticipating: Warner Brothers and actor/director Nick Cassavetes (my … Continue reading Bebe, the Movie

My one word 2015

I have written about My One Word (MOW) in the past. The premise is this: you pick just one word to inspire you all year long. If you are a writer, the appeal of only writing ONE WORD in a writing session is seductive. It is, however, also deceiving. It's harder to choose just one word to … Continue reading My one word 2015

Get happy

Maybe you fellow NaNoWriMo-ers  are in need of a break from the endless typing inherent in the race to get 50,ooo words down into a word doc by November 30th. Option 1: I'm thinking that some laugh therapy sure as hell couldn't hurt. If you have access to the Disney Channel (34 on Maine Time … Continue reading Get happy

Minions!!

If you love the minions and are trolling for minion products to surround yourself with happiness, I am here to lend you a hand. Walmart has small packages of minion stickers in the card/party section and boxes of minion bandaids in the (you guessed it) the bandaid section. Both are inexpensive, under $3. The Women's section has … Continue reading Minions!!

Still becoming

When my mother was 51, she was busy getting ready to die, but she didn't know this yet. Well, maybe she did know it on some level, but she never talked about it with me pre-diagnosis so I really can't be sure. Certainly none of us, her children, her husband, knew it yet. I'm 51. … Continue reading Still becoming
