DIA's Heinous Blue Mustang Has Got To Go

I have been offended with the "Demon Mustang" since it was erected. I personally think that it is an eyesore and cannot believe that the taxpayers had to pay for it. I was happy to hear, this week, on 7 News that there is a blog site dedicated to getting rid of the horse.

"Is anyone else as mortified and offended by DIA's 32 foot fiendish blue "Mustang" statue as I am?

"Does anyone else find it to be the least welcoming public art exhibit imaginable?

"Are you perturbed by the chilling fact that Luis Jimenez, its creator, was killed by a piece of its torso?

"Please join! Ask your friend to join!

"I mean really, it would be nice to feel some sense of pride and dignity when traveling to and from the airport."
On the other hand I am perfectly okay with they Big Blue Bear at the convention center. He is whimsical and cute.

Happy Birthday to you!!!

Happy 9th Birthday DS!!

What a motley crew!

Patiently waiting to cash in our tickets.

DS wanted to go to Amazing Jakes for his birthday. So we invited some friends and ran amuck. Fun was had by all.

Those of you that have seen both "HSM3" and "Twilight" AND have read the rest of the Twilight series, I would like your opinion on the following article. I don't think she has it in her.
Vanessa Hudgens Auditions for Twilight Sequel

Now here's a role Vanessa Hudgens would like to sink her teeth into. The High School Musical star has auditioned for the part of werewolf Leah Clearwater in the Twilight sequel New Moon, according to Ashley Green, who played Alice in Twilight."I think she'd be great," Greene tells MTV. As Leah, Hudgens, 20, would be a foil to Taylor Lautner, who will reprise his role as werewolf Jacob Black. In the Stephenie Meyer novels, Leah is her pack's lone female werewolf – and a jilted one, at that. Unlike Hudgens's Gabriella in HSM, Leah experiences heartbreak, being ditched by classmate (and fellow werewolf) Sam Uley.

It's Girl Scout Cookie Time!!!

That wonderful time of year has come again, Girl Scout Cookies!!!

Since I am a Troop Leader, mom of a Girl Scout, and a sucker for a good cookie, I beseech you all to look inside your hearts to keep those little girls of six off the streets by purchasing cookies. Of course, I would love to have you contact me, but it would also be nice to contribute to others with need.

Okay, enough of the groveling! Cookie time really is Friday. My girls will actually be selling AND earning recognitions this year. We will also be doing booth sales, so if you'd like to visit us, I can let you know when and where!!

Because, I do not have the funds or the inclination to follow in Phyllis Nefler's footsteps (see clip from Troop Beverly Hills), I have to limit my selfless postulating to my blog.
So, make yourself, your spouse, and your kids happy and go buy some Girl Scout Cookies!

Down in the Jungle Room (Part 2)

I feel really feel bad that I didn't pay tribute to 2008, like some of my friends. I just post the previous blog.(Big shrug) Does that say something about me??? I guess I just write my "Christmas Letter" and if ya miss it, too bad!!! I just try live life the best I can and try not to worry about the rest of it.

Happy New Year to you all!!!

Down in the Jungle Room

With all this talk of people of the male persuasion and all that entails, I am reminded of "Walking in Memphis"

"....Waiting for the King
Down in the Jungle Room

They've got catfish on the table
They've got gospel in the air.... "

Yes, ladies I have come into my own. However, I feel that I do need to defend my character. While Cary Elwes is only 46 (and by the way, I am MUCH younger than that), I do also find several other "older" men attractive such as:
Nicholas Cage who is 44. Now his is not a "classic beauty", but his preformance in "Face Off", well anything really, has to be commended. And he can sport a duster for my anyday!! (I tried to find a clip of him getting out of the car at the airport, but couldn't.)

Keanu Reeves is also 44. Patrick Swayze at 56 is nothing to sneeze at considering what he has been through.

I have been "crushing" on Keanu since "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure". Yes, I AM that old.

The duster I referred to earlier, mmmm baby!!

Val Kilmer who is 49. Since I love comedies, I have to say that some of my other favorite movies are "Real Genius" and "Top Secret". Also, who could forget him in the ever lovable role of Lt. Tom 'Iceman' Kazansky from "Top Gun". He, however, has not aged well. (Picture from 1986)

Yes, I looked almost this good when I graduated, but we've all seen what happened to that!! I could never pull off the Flight Suit motiff, but you get the idea.

And who could leave out........

Sean Connery who at 78 is still hot.

He can even sport a fedora and a goatee and still be hot!!!
