Happy Halloween 2013

Getting into the fun of Halloween, I figure, just like I did for Christmas time; I'll give my movie picks for the season. My favorites to watch for the month of October's Fright Fest in no particular order:
Booohaaahaaahaaaraaa ;-)

10. Freddy Kruger (all the series)
9. Candyman 
8. The Skeleton Key
7. Child's Play (all of Chuckie: although it's comical)
6. JoyRide
5. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 
4. Amityville Horror
3. The Ring
2. Shutter
1. The Exorcism of Emily Rose (I can't lie...I'm scared of this one!)

Those are my pics! I enjoy ALL scary movies so it was sort of hard to just name 10! 
Eve's Bayou still creeps me out! The Haunting was okay. I still will watch Scream's and I Know What You Did Last Summer. High Tension almost made the cut. Vampire in Brooklyn is a fan favorite! (Even though it's not scary) Bram Stoker's Dracula and Poltergeist too! Children of the Corn and Jeepers Creepers could easily be apart! I love to catch Silver Bullet, Wolf, The Shining, The Rite, and Halloween when they come on! I've recently seen Wrong Turn 2, and enjoyed it as well
What are some of your favs?!

Happy Halloween 2013'

Extra Gorgeous

I have this little Angel of a colleague that's stopped me in the hallway twice this week to comment that I'm looking...her words, "extra gorgeous!" She makes me smile each time, because I think I look a confused, frazzled mess walking fast getting stuff done like a chicken with my head cut off. We see each other often, in passing, in the morning then again in the afternoon. We always smile at each other and continue our fast-paced walk through the whirlwind day...But today, as we were doing our routine fast pass walk this afternoon, she stops, steps in and says, "I just have to ask. Is there a new man in your life?" I laugh and say, "Seriously! Why do you say that?" Her reply, "You just have a glow! You're glowing! You're gorgeous already, but here lately...I don't know. You've been extra gorgeous!" I laugh and say, "You're too kind and too funny! That's so sweet of you to say. Thank you!" She winks and says, "I tell you what! If you don't have a new man...a new one's coming! Extra gorgeous!" Then we both laugh! I say, "You're a mess! You've made my day! Have a great evening!" 

...I guess the jig is up, the dogs have been let out, and the gate is open! Lol

Pet Peeve Número Uno!

I'm such a life-long and avid reader that it really just chumps my chops when people don't read!!! Family, friends, students, anyone!! 
If I've taken the time out to WRITE it down and include it....don't even get me started on...and STATED it VERBALLY...
1. Invitation
2. Directions 
3. Text
4. Email
5. Letter
6. Etc.
Damn it! You need to read and reread it and then read it again, if needed. 
The absolute worst is when you send an invitation with ALL instructions, directions, or procedures WRITTEN and immediately following the "send", your phone rings and the questions PRINTED are asked!!
Seriously, man?! Get your life!!!!! 
It's PRINTED for your viewing pleasure! 

R. E. A. D.

I'm working on it...God's not through with me yet, because I used to just hang up on a person that would do that...or read them up one side and down the other! Now... I just breathe, and say, "Did you get the (invite, evite, text, email)?" 
When they say, "Yes." 
I just breathe and say, "Did you read it?"

When all I really want to say is, "You goofy @*# it's on the m~@~£,>#{].,^+[*=g  (invite, evite, text, emai!) if your dumb $@% would READ!"
But of course...I spare feelings ;-) LOL

Blame me for being a communications major!

Oh me, oh my! Cooking for a Large Family Pt. 2

So after brainstorming all the meals I've already cooked in my repertoire...and all the meals I'd like to cook but haven't yet...and all the meals I don't know how to cook, just yet; I've narrowed my menu options down.
Main course:
Chicken (not a huge fan of chicken but hey, it works baked)

Homemade macaroni
Green beans with red potatoes 
Rice and gravy
Sweet Potato casserole 


Chocolate chip cookies 

I'm leaning towards the roast as the main course. Should all be really good though! We'll see...
