Tuesday Tootsies

Movies and games and cars, oh my!  Staples of American pop culture, right?

These are the official shoe releases for the remake (?) of the movie Tron.  I kid you not.  They made couture shoes for Tron.  You know, I still haven’t seen that movie, but I kinda like those shoes.

We’re OFF to see the Wizard!  Follow the Yellow Brick Road!  Perhaps the most famous shoes in movie history, those ruby slippers.

Looking to make an investment?  These are the original shoes worn by Marty McFly in the 1st Back to the Future movie.  I heard they were for sale at auction for 25k.  Your mileage may vary.

Like Pacman?  Now you can get the shoes to show your love.

Or slippers, if you’re the more relaxed type.  🙂

Want a Porsche?  We all do, right?  These even have the official Porsche logo.

These almost look like a face to me, with the way the “headlights” set into the shoe, they look like eyes.   I see these and I hear that line (was it Ted Nugent singing it?), “My face is a Mazeratti.”  I know these aren’t Mazeratti shoes, but that’s the line that goes through my mind.  I can’t drive 55 either.

Monday Mishmash

imageSo, did you all have a nice Thanksgiving weekend?  Those of you who celebrated at least.  For my Canadian friends, I hope your weekend was great even though you didn’t have Thanksgiving.  🙂

***

We spent some time re-wrapping-up the SSLRP I was working on, so that was fun. 

***

I got the latest Vince Flynn book from the library.  That’s like, major woo for me.  :D 

***

Had an awful nightmare and when I told Darc about it, he suggested I make some notes in case he might want to use it as a scene in a book later.  I swear, when they’re really bad, I wake up from them in that cold sweat and it actually goes through my mind, “Oh that was awful!  …  I should tell my husband, maybe he could use it in a story.”  I wonder if other horror writer’s wives do that.

***

Can you believe it’s almost December?  It’s like the year kind of snuck by without much fanfare.  I have my idea now for my new Tuesday theme, but I’m still reaching for a Thursday one to replace the Thankfulness posts.  Maybe I’ll even *gasp* cut back on blogging.  I don’t know yet.  I do know I’m going through some things internally and my focus is changing.  Maybe I’ll have it figured out by the end of the year.  If not, oh well.  😉

So, really, how was your weekend?

Friday Holiday Funnies

Darc got this in an email and sent it on to me.  I hope it makes you laugh as much as it did me.  And I also hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  🙂

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Dear Family &  Friends,

I know that you were eager to accept our family’s  invitation to Thanksgiving dinner when you found out that the famous Martha Stewart would be joining us.  However, due to  scheduling conflicts beyond her control, Ms. Stewart finds that she is unable to grace our table this year.  With that in mind, there will be a few minor changes regarding the meal and decor, as  outlined below.  Please be aware of them, and adjust your appetite and dress appropriately.  Thank you. 

1) Our driveway will not be lined with homemade, paper bag luminaries.   After several trial runs and two visits from the fire department,  it was decided that, no matter how cleverly done, rows of flaming lunch sacks do not have the desired welcoming effect. 

2) Once inside, please note that the entry space will not be decorated with swags of Indian corn and fall foliage.  Instead, we included our dogs in decorating by having them track in colorful autumn leaves from the back yard.  The mud was their idea.  The cat joined in. 

3) The dining table will not be covered with expensive linens, fancy china, or crystal goblets.  If possible, we will use dishes that match and everyone will get a fork.  Since this is Thanksgiving, we will refrain from using the paper birthday party dinner plates, the leftover Halloween napkins, and our plastic cup collection. 

4) Our centerpiece will not be a tower of fresh fruit and flowers.  Instead we will be proudly displaying a hedgehog-like decoration hand-crafted from the finest construction paper and pine cones.  The artist assures me it is a turkey, albeit one without wings, legs, or a beak. 

5) We will be dining somewhat later than planned.  However, our daughter will entertain you while you wait.  I’m sure she will be happy to share every choice comment her mother made regarding Thanksgiving, pilgrims, stuffing choices, the turkey hotline, and, especially, her father.  Please remember that most of these comments were made at 7:00 AM upon discovering that said father had only remembered to pull the  turkey from the freezer at 6:00 AM, and that the thing was still hard enough to cut diamonds.

6) As an accompaniment to our daughter’s recital of these events, I will play a recording of Native American tribal drumming. Curiously, the tribal drumming sounds a great deal like a frozen turkey in a clothes dryer, but that only enhances the holiday appropriateness.  If our daughter should mention that we don’t own a recording of Native American  tribal drumming, ignore her.  She’s only nine; what does she know?

7) A dainty silver bell will not be rung to announce the start of our feast.  We have chosen to keep our traditional method of assembling when the smoke alarm goes off.

8) There will be no formal seating arrangement.  When the smoke alarm sounds, please gather around the table and sit where you like.  In the spirit of harmony, we will ask all the children to sit at a separate table.  In a separate room. Next door.  And I would like to take this opportunity to remind our younger diners that "passing  the rolls" is neither a football play nor an excuse to bean your cousin in the head with bread.

9) The turkey will not be carved at the table.  I know you have seen the Norman Rockwell  image of one person carving a turkey in front of a crowd of appreciative onlookers.  Such a scene may occur somewhere in America , but it won’t be happening at our dinner table.  For safety reasons, the turkey will be carved in the kitchen at a private ceremony.  I stress "private", meaning Do not, under any circumstances, enter the kitchen to laugh at me.  Do not send small, unsuspecting children, or older, helpful grandparents into the kitchen to check on my progress.  I have a very large, very sharp knife.  The turkey is unarmed.  It stands to reason that I will eventually win the battle.  When I do, we will  eat.

10) Instead of offering a choice among 12 different scrumptious desserts, we will be serving the traditional pumpkin pie, garnished with whipped cream and dog tongue marks.  You still have a choice: take it or leave it.  That concludes our list of alterations.  Again, I apologize that Martha will not be joining us this year.

Wednesday Unworried

 image

Darc is done with his SSRLP, and I am done with mine, and now we have nothing to do with our time.  I mean, besides housework and cooking and cleaning and raising the children.  :)  The timing is perfect for the holiday coming.  We have much to be grateful for this season what with the new job coming.  Life will be changing for us, in a good way. 

*****

Whenever I get some spare cash, I’m buying Bolt.  The kids have borrowed it from the library several times now and it’s turned into a family favorite, much like Kung Fu Panda.  Bolt is for anyone who has ever loved a pet, lost a pet, found a pet or wanted a pet.  And the pigeons are unbelievably real, too.  🙂

*****

While I may not be preparing a big meal for the holiday, I am feeling a fullness in my spirit.  I wish I could explain it to you, but words defy me.  Sometimes I think I must capture this feeling on paper, but no, I can’t.  There is too much beauty, too much joy, too much gratitude to be contained or captured on paper.  Thanksgiving is so much more than just a day, you know?  It’s a state of being.  🙂
