  1. 40 Things About Me

    January 23, 2015 by C.

    For inquiring minds...

    For inquiring minds…

     

     

    I put this together for all of my stalkers and those who just feel the need to know more about me. I apologize in advance. Well, except to my stalkers who are thrilled beyond belief. You’re welcome.

    1.       I hate being outside.

    2.      Mainly because of bugs.

    3.      One time a bee crawled in my pop can while I was golfing. It stung the inside of my upper lip. My lip was huge. Bees don’t taste good in case you were wondering. 

    4.      I love any kind of storm (yes, even snow).

    5.      Rainy days are my favorite…especially if the weather is cooler, like in the 50’s.

    6.      I was in a rock band in high school. I played guitar, but really wanted to play drums.

    7.      I have a set of drums in storage.

    8.     I don’t play them because I am scared of all the bugs in the storage unit.

    9.      Bugs freak me the hell out.

    10.  I love kids in small doses, except for my niece and nephew. I would like a dose of them daily, but they live two hours away.

    11.   I never had kids of my own because I knew my cursing, eating cereal for dinner (Lucky Charms and Fruitty Pebbles)  and my love of staying up all hours would not be healthy for a child.

    12.  Also, I would lock them outside to play all the time, like even in the winter or overnight.

    13.  And I am super selfish and love to spend all my money on zombie toys, books, and Oreos.

    14.  Plus I HATE eating at McDonald’s. It is so gross. I was told once they use cow eyeballs as meat filler. No thanks. But kids love that shit, so no kids for me!

    15.   I however LOVE eating Papa John’s pizza and drinking Cokes.

    16.  I don’t drink alcohol. Ever. I know you probably find that hard to believe since many of my posts are about wine or drinking, but that is not the case. I have allergies to alcohol and I am never sure what will set them off, so I just avoid it altogether. I put those posts up for all of you. Yes, I am super sweet and considerate.

    17.   I have been known to sniff quite a bit of glue, though.

    18.  Not really. My mom just had a heart attack. Sorry Mom!

    19.  My mom lives in the duplex next to mine. I write about her all the time because I think she is very funny (especially when she doesn’t mean to be). She has threatened to sue me many times. I try to make her understand that it will all pay off for her one day (that means she might get a nursing home with activities like basket weaving AND also has attentive aides to wipe her butt).

    20. I have always been determined to be semi-famous. My autograph has been perfected and I am ready for my 1st book signing. Guess I just need to actually write a book.

    21.  I have started approximately 204 books but have not gotten past the 1st chapter of any of them.

    22. I suck.

    23. One of my most favorite things in the world is breakfast buffet. Especially in Vegas.

    24. I hate going to Vegas though.

    25.  I have two dream vacations…one to Italy so I can eat my weight in pasta and hang with George Clooney at Lake Como. 2nd one is a trip to Los Angeles to do nothing but stalk TV and movies stars for a week.

    26. I collect autographs of celebrities and athletes through the mail.

    27.  Out of all of them that have been returned to me signed, the one that truly made me get tears in my eyes was Carol Burnett. I have loved her and her show since I was a child.

    28. I love movies and I am a snob about them.

    29.  Such a snob, I have never watched Dumb and Dumber or Happy Gilmore. I HATE Dirty Dancing and Ghost.

    30. I am also a book snob. Hated Twilight and 50 Shades.

    31.My friends get irritated with me because I make fun of their enjoyment of such movies and books.

    32.  I  had to have one such friend go with me to get my ears pierced when I was 26-years-old, because I hate needles and I was scared to death.

    33. I still hate needles.

    34. I would never make a very good druggie.

    35. I would however be an excellent drug dealer.

    36.  I really want to learn how to shoot guns.

    37. I also want to learn how to throw knives like a ninja.

    38.  I might be a little weird.

    39. Ok, I am a lot weird.

    40. I love each and every person for taking the time out of their day to come to this page and read the things I write. Thank you so very, very much.


  2. I Love the Oscars

    March 1, 2014 by C.

    Sunday night!!!

    Sunday night!!!

     

     

    Every year my mom and I have a mini Oscars party. It is a night of great food, lots of laughs and of course the competition. We each fill out a ballot and determine the winner, also known as the “movie genius” who will then get to rub in winning all year long to the loser. We have been doing this for so many years, I cannot even remember when we started making it an event.

    We pick eleven of the 24 categories…all the major ones. She likes to scream loudly when she gets one right and I just like to talk shit, “Oh, what’s that Mom?? You missed another one? You don’t know jack about movies, old lady!” I’m sure you’re all jealous you’ll be missing out on this.

    The food. This year we are changing it up big time. We have bought a tenderloin and will be cutting some nice steaks off of it. Baked potatoes, asparagus, hot rolls and bread pudding with ice cream sauce for dessert. Normally, we just do things like beans and cornbread, but we are going all out this year.

    I would love to share my picks with you, but my mother cannot be trusted not to come on here and cheat, but I will discuss all the nominated pictures and try not to give too much away.

    American Hustle– I really liked this movie but I don’t really understand all the Oscar hype for it. It was good, but not mind-blowing. I also don’t understand why everyone is all about Amy Adams’ performance. She was just ok. I actually thought Jennifer Lawrence stole the movie in the few moments she was in it. If Amy Adams wins Best Actress for this picture, the remote control will leave a dent in the TV screen, because I have a pretty good arm for a girl. I have a feeling Cate Blanchett will win it for her sweaty armpits and manic behavior in the Woody Allen film, “Blue Jasmine” anyways.

    *Meryl Streep, honey, the Best Actress Oscar should be yours. I am so sorry people hate you for being so good, but you are the best and people just need to freaking deal with it. Every award you are nominated for should be yours. Please drop the restraining order soon, thanks.*

    Her– This was nominated for Best Picture over “August: Osage County”??? WTF????

    Philomena– The little movie no one has heard of and that’s a shame. Based on a true story of a young Irish girl who gets pregnant and her parents dump her off at a Catholic home for unwed mothers (because I guess back in the day you didn’t get on a TV show for getting knocked up). She keeps her son for several years; until he is sold to an American couple and whisked across the ocean. Philomena starts the search for her adult son with a reporter helping her along the way. Dame Judy Dench is fantastic in this movie. Check it out the minute it hits DVD.

    Dallas Buyers Club–  Can’t say enough good things about this one. It was one I was dreading to watch, but was so glad I did. Jared Leto makes a beautiful woman and Matthew McConaughey gives the performance of his life (no, sorry ladies, his best performance wasn’t in “Magic Mike”).

    The Wolf of Wall Street– If you like crazy, funny movies you would love this one. I laughed most of the way through it. Leo is outstanding as usual. Not really sure why Jonah Hill is nominated other than the challenge of speaking with those horse teeth in his mouth.

    Captain Phillips–  From start to finish this one will have you on the edge of your seat. Tom Hanks is great as usual. This one is a must see.

    Gravity–  This movie is special. I like to call it “movie magic”. The special effects are amazing, it is a beautiful film and the acting was superb. I am very sorry if you missed seeing this movie in 3D, because it was truly spectacular.

    12 Years a Slave– I think the Best Picture battle will come down between this one and “Gravity”. This film, is an important film. It was extremely difficult to watch in certain scenes and it makes me feel so ashamed and sad to watch one race be so horrible to another. The ordeal this man went through (based on a true story) is just like one long continuous nightmare. I cannot even fathom being in the same situation and how I would react.

    I hope Lupita Nyong’o wins best supporting actress; she was so incredible in this movie and she wears the most gorgeous gowns to these award shows I have ever seen and she looks stunning in them. I can’t wait to see what she wears tomorrow night.

    Nebraska– What a touching story of a man and his son on a journey to cash in a sweepstakes letter, that the son knows will not produce any money. Bruce Dern and June Squibb are so believable as an elderly married couple, you will want to lock them up in an old folks home just to get away from the nagging and hearing the same things repeated a million times because poor Bruce is hard of hearing. I don’t want to ruin the end, but they couldn’t have ended it any better.

    Ellen DeGeneres will host the awards (our favorite has always been Billy Crystal) and she should be much better than last year’s host, Seth McFarlane. If you have a free four hours tomorrow night, you should watch or at the very least, rent some of these wonderful movies and prepare to be amazed.

     


  3. I’m Having A Baby

    January 9, 2014 by C.

    Miracles do happen...

    Miracles do happen…

     

     

    This fake story got me thinking (Yes, it’s fake…Snopes says so). What if this were possible? If you could go to a 3D movie and become impregnated by one of the people in the film; which films/people would you choose?

    It didn’t take long for me to come up with a list and the reasons why.

    5. Thor-Chris Hemsworth is pretty. Boy or girl, my child would have gorgeous hair and hair is damn important.

    So pretty

    So pretty

    4. Gravity– Mr. George Clooney is probably the most wanted man in America. No woman can tame him. I don’t care about taming him;  I  would just like oodles of child support money and occasionally get to see him in person.

    Come here, I will give you a baby!

    Come here, I will give you a baby!

    3. Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience– This was made back in 2009 when the boys were still wearing those virginity rings. Talk about Immaculate Conception! Again oodles of child support money. Wait, would this mean I’m having triplets??? Screw that shit.

    We're having a baby! Yea!

    We’re having a baby! Yea!

    2. A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas– No, I don’t want Harold or Kumar. I want Neil Patrick Harris! Our child would be so funny and could dance and sing and act and curse a ton (my gift I’m giving our child). It would be such an amazing kid. The whole back of my Kia would be full of those honor student stickers and the  family decals. Our family decal would look a little weird because NPH would be on a pedestal and our child would be in a top hat, doing a dance, while saying, “Hey bastard, get off our bumper!”

    I am Legend-ary!

    I am Legend-ary! Let’s have babies!

     

    1. Man of Steel– Duh. The most gorgeous man alive and he’s British. God, I love accents. I would make sure he bought us a house in England so the child would have an English accent as well. Graham Lesley George Felix Fitz-Lloyd Pippa Charles Cavill (the name I have picked out for my English son) and I would eat fish and chips all day and stalk the Royal Family whenever we had a chance.

    I will stare at you until you  are expecting our super baby.

    I will stare at you until you are expecting our super baby.

     

    This is one of those times when I’m glad the silly crap I make up can never come true.


  4. 5 Things About The Movie “Gravity”

    October 13, 2013 by C.

    Go see this movie!

    Go see this movie!

     

     

     

    I actually ventured out of the house last Saturday to go see this one. Maybe these five thoughts will help you determine if you should go see it or not. It seems people are pretty hesitant about it for some reason.

     

    1. It makes you appreciate walking on the Earth so much more. I never ever ever ever want to go up in space thanks to this movie. Not even if Richard Branson offered to send me up for free.

    2. Sandra Bullock was amazing in this. I expect she will get an Academy Award nomination for this role. Far from her normal adorkable self, but she pulls off serious very nicely.

    3.  This movie is beautiful. Space is amazing to look at and the special effects are superb.

    4. You must pay the extra money to see this in 3D or IMAX. Nothing as exciting as getting whacked in the head a few times with flying space debris.

    5. George Clooney basically plays the astronaut version of himself in the movie…charming, handsome and funny. This is really Sandra’s movie and he’s allowed to be in it.

    You simply must see this movie.

  6. Stalking Sisters

    November 1, 2012 by C.

    This way to George Clooney!

     

     

     

    I used one of my vacation days to go stalking with my sister. They are filming the movie, “August: Osage County” near where she lives and we thought we would spend the day looking for George Clooney and the gang.

    These AOC signs direct you to where they are filming. You need directions because the set location is in the real BFE.

    After scouting out the situation we decided it would be best to park on the volunteer fire station parking lot. Our spot was between what I call “Trailer Town” (where all the stars have their fancy trailers parked) and the house they are filming in.

    First star spotted was Julia Roberts. They use these large white passenger vans to transport the stars from the trailer to the house when it is time for them to shoot. When they finish, the van picks them up and takes them back to their trailer. You would not believe how many times they run back and forth. We were out there about 6 hours and saw Meryl in her wig, Julia Roberts, Juliette Lewis and Abigail Breslin. We think we saw Chris Cooper but hard to tell the guys apart as they are zooming by. No George.

    After a couple of hours the sheriff pulled up. I was ecstatic. How awesome would it be to get arrested for stalking George Clooney? Well, awesome at least for a blog post or two. After that, not so much.

    Instead of busting us, he walks to the port-a-pot parked next to the fire station. Now, this is just how not threatened he was by us in our Mommy van. He left his car running and unlocked. How insulting. Mini-van moms are bad asses too!

    When he exits, my sister asks why he is going to the bathroom so far from his post. He said,”This is the bathroom they have set up for us to use”. He then tells us they get to eat in the tents with the stars but so far he had only seen George Clooney and Juliette Lewis. I cannot imagine eating anywhere near George Clooney. I would have food dribbled all over my boobs in no time. I swear my boobs eat more than I do.

    He asks what we were doing and we told him just watching the stars drive by and praying they get so bored they might stop. He just laughed. I love a cop that is nice to stalkers. He wished us good luck and took off.

    The closest town was 15 miles away. Luckily they had a Pizza Hut. We called in our lunch and then raced to Kansas to pick it up. We shared our cheesy bread sticks and kicked back just like we were watching a movie and sharing popcorn. It was a beautiful day (except for the smell of cow patties) and we were watching beautiful people make a movie. Or at least be driven to make a movie.

    We were pulling out to leave and I was going to get a photo of trailer town to share with you all. A truck was backing out of that area so we had to sit in the road and wait. They waved us through and just as I was about to take the photo I saw Julia Robert’s body-guard glaring at me. I pull the camera back in and smile and wave. Arms crossed against his  massive chest, muscles flexed and the angriest look on his face…he just kept glaring even after I was all nice and didn’t take a photo. This man was choking me telekinetically. He looked at me like he wanted me dead and quickly.

    Angry protector of Julia Roberts

    I don’t think my sister has seen this so I say, “that man was super angry for some reason and I think he wants me dead.”

    “Oh, well that might be because he knows my car. How did you think I knew he was her bodyguard?” she asked.

    “He knows your car???? I ask.

    “Yea, I was trying to get into those loft apartments Julia and Meryl are living in. Plus, I drive by all the time. He must have recognized my car from standing out there guarding the place,” she said.

    It was then I realized that my sister has become the better stalker of the two of us. Her children regularly ask, “Mom, are we going stalking tonight?”

    It has become a part of her everyday life and I enjoy being a hermit far too much to be near as dedicated as she is. But then I think, if this was going on in my town I would probably quit my job and hunt for George full-time.

    We might both have some serious issues.

     


  7. To Catch a Clooney

    October 9, 2012 by C.

    George, honey…I’m home!

     

     

     

     

    I have long been obsessed with celebrity. The reasons are still unknown to me. Actors, singers, bands, writers…if I appreciate their work I want to meet them. Yes, I know they are just people like you and me but they are living the life. Doing what they love and getting paid handsomely to do so. Signing autographs, posing for pictures and special treatment wherever they go. Sounds pretty cool to me.

    So my sister told me a movie would be filmed in the town she lives in. I immediately began to research the movie, actors and when filming would begin.

    Turns out the movie is “August: Osage County”, the play written by Tracy Letts that was a Broadway sensation. George Clooney is producing the movie and he has signed up a dream team of actors…the best actress in the history of film (just my opinion) Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Sam Shepard, Chris Cooper, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Abigail Breslin and Margo Martindale (thought she was great in “Secretariat”).

    Now, let me be perfectly honest, if I met Meryl Streep I would probably turn into some blubbering idiot. When I think of her performance in “Sophie’s Choice” I still get all weepy and I know I will embarrass myself and frighten her, so I am hoping sincerely not to meet her. Plus, you know how you idolize someone so much and you meet them and they turn out to be the worst person ever and you are forever disappointed? I don’t want to take that risk.

    Filming started the last week of September and will continue for eight weeks. The weekend before the movie was to start filming my friend Cindy and I drove over to stalk with my sister. We loaded up in my sister’s mini-van along with her two children (really never too young of an age to start teaching stalking skills).

    We made trips to the airport (thinking the stars would fly in on their private jets). No luck. My sister drove us to a house that George was supposedly living in. We must have sat there and watched the house for 2 hours or more. Nada.

    The most exciting part of the trip was a drive out to the farm-house where 80% of the film will take place. The house sits about a half mile off the main road. There were giant barriers blocking the driveway. Do we let some barricades stop us? Oh, no.

    We got about half way down this dirt road and I see the security guard’s truck. I tell my sister to turn the car around and head back out to the road. No need to go to jail when it was clear no one was there filming. If there had been a chance Julia Roberts could watch me get arrested then it might have been worth it.

    “Nope, we are going down right in front of the house and taking pictures,” she said.

    We continued to try to scream some sense into her head. She was just too determined.

    As the van was swinging around in a u-turn in front of the house, I see the security guard stand up. This is it. This man is  sending us off to the clinker and the two children off to protective services.

    The security guard just smiled and waved. I rolled the window down, snapped the picture and told her to drive. She still objected. Wanted to get out of the car. I don’t know if she was wanting to roll around on her back in the grass George might have stepped on or what, but it was time to go. Live to stalk another day is my motto.

    Cindy and I will return for more stalking later this month. They seem to be filming mainly Monday through Friday so we are actually taking a day of vacation to go chase George and the gang.

    If we catch a Clooney I am not certain what we will do with him, but no worries, we will figure something out.

    hehehehehehehehe
