The Blog Tribe Has Spoken

Thanks to everyone who helped me pick my shoes!

As it turns out, I like the ones that came in last. It rains here at least 8 months out of the year. A girl must be prepared with good solid shoes.

Hang in there guys, this post isn't all about shoes.

I have several pairs of Sketchers that I love so I purchased the Sketchers in brown (#1) and the Naturalizers in black (#3). Buy one, the second is half off, free shipping and $35 in rewards coupons. woohoo.

The guys are looking bored here....

The brown I wanted because I'm trying to lighten up on my abundance of black clothes and besides, I have a favorite brown purse. Purse and shoes must match, so la-dee-dah-dee-dah.

MUDD shoes are cute, but I went and tried them on in the store. They make my feet look like waffle irons. I already have a pair of black MUDDs with silver buckles tucked away in my closet, Mr. Coffee reminded me. I've worn them maybe two or three times and why I don't get rid of them is beyond me. I should just clean out the closet. If you are a size 10 in women's and love MUDDs with thick soles, let me know.

Are the guys totally glazed over by now?


Okay, now I have everyone's attention......

(If you watch SCRUBS, I'm giving you an "Inside Joke Five, Yeah!")

I just caught wind of new Bond movie coming out next year. Bond 22. I like the Bond movies and really liked the last one but I had to watch it a couple times. It's been suggested that Hugh Laurie would make a fabulous Q, and I would agree, not taking from John Cleese's obvious talent to act and make one laugh.

I went to IMDB to find out more upcoming releases and found a Luc Besson film I have yet to see (trailer below). Angel-A is now on my radar. How I love a good foreign flick. Luc Besson was involved in two of my top three favorite movies: Wasabi and Transporter. He also directed Leon The Professional and introduced to the world a very young Natalie Portman.

I am so excited about The Golden Age. Cate Blanchett returns as an older Queen Elizabeth I. As I read and whole-heartedly agree, if Cate Blanchett doesn't get an Academy Award for this, heads should roll. It doesn't hurt that Clive Owen is in it either. I'm just saying....

I hadn't heard about The Golden Age with CB! That first movie in which she played Elizabeth I is an all-time fave of mine. A friend just recently gave me the DVD of it. I had the VCR tape for years. That's one of the few movies I saw at the theater. I'll see this one there, too. I was so disappointed when she didn't get the Oscar for that. I couldn't believe G. Paltrow got it for Shakespeare in Love.

How odd. I posted about shoes today, too.

Transporter I was cool, but that second one? Not so much. I really liked The Professional, too. We must compare lists of favorite movies sometime soon. I wonder how many more we have in common.

Elizabeth is a GREAT movie. She makes an incredible queen.

The second Transporter stunk. Nothing like the first, but Luc Besson did not direct it, this is why.

If you haven't seen Amelie, I say go see it NOW. It's that good. You would like Wasabi. Both have subtitles.

you're confusing me because the skechers are #2...???

*Scrubs High Five back atcha!*

I have so many daily JD moments, it's like we're connected in the fantasy life.

That sounded a lot less gay in my mind. ;)


Jenn said...

I'm speaking of the number of votes.

hahaha, my favorite is The Todd and Perry's ranting..so funny.

Did you say PUSH UP BRA?

Cause it sounded like you did. I voted for the middle shoes. That is what I do when I am not sure about something - go for the one in the middle. Like when I drink too much and I see three door knobs. The one in the middle is probably the real one.

Oh, I like Cate Blanchett. My husband has a crush on her, but only when she's Galadriel. I guess he likes pointy ears. ;-)

Love "the Todd" reference!

Glad you got the shoes you wanted. :)

I'm so a size 10..how much do you want for the shoes??? I could use a new pair of black, seriously.

I am ready for the new Bond movie...and I think you're right about Hugh Laurie.

R said...

I have seen two BBC or something movies about Elizabeth 1. I am sort of getting tired of it. I have not seen this one and wonder why the heck do we need yet another, but oh well.

Looks good though.

I promise, I wasn't drunk.

Blog tribe. Hee hee.

I read the coolest blog this morning (2 a.m.) and for the life of me I can't remember.. gotta go find it.. something about a woman who needed a washer and dryer and met the expected deliverypersons with a can of WD-40, the traditional greeting presented by their tribe. Hilarious!

Nobody clicked my "Wonder Bra" link? Come on! That link is great! I am hurt and may never put another link in a comment again.

Jenn said...

I did lazy!! I manually accept cookies when I surf so it probably didn't register.

The Lazy Iguana said...

Now sag to your knees!

Classic. Best comedy bit ever.

Redneck Mommy said...

Now what were you saying about a pushup bra????
