Tuesday Talk / 10 on Tuesday...

 

Man, do I love me a good link-up & here I am putting these two together - Tuesday Talk and the first 10 on Tuesday with Sept. Farm (she's hoping for at least fifty to link up with her on this so lets help her out, people!).

So, my ten things that I'm gonna talk about are:  Reasons Why I'm a Nerd.

  1.  Twilight.  My nerdiness first started with Edward & Bella.  I've read the series twice, had theme parties for each movie when it came out on video & seen the movies countless times.  I was a Twi-hard.  Ha!

  2.  Harry Potter.  It took me a long time to get into Harry.  All the books had been released & most of the movies before I even started reading them.  The only two movies I actually saw in the theater were Deathly Hallows.  & now, in less than two weeks I'll be visiting The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal &, to be honest, it's the only thing I really want to see.  Ha!

  3.  Hunger Games.  Again, I was late to the boat on this one as well.  I read the first book in time for the first movie to come out on video but I was hooked.  This series is probably my favorite.  I just wish that it was longer than three books / four movies.

  4.  Divergent.  This one I was on board with right away & the hubby actually really enjoys these movies & is counting down until Allegiant comes out.  I really enjoyed the first book/movie but as the series went on, I thought it got a little weak.  I love me some Shailene Woodley though.  :)

  5.  Batman.  When I was younger, I loved all the Batman movies - Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, & George Clooney.  I watched the movies multiple times & even had the soundtrack to Batman & Robin (no jokes!).  But I didn't realize that the best was yet to come - Christian Bale.  To me, he's Batman & will always be Batman.  There is nobody that says "I'm Batman", like Bale.

  6.  Game of Thrones.  Paul & I didn't get into GoT right off the bat, we had to rent the first two seasons, I believe.  Once we got caught up, we didn't give it up.  It's the one show besides American Horror Story that we watch right away.  We even named our cat after Tyrion Lannister / Peter Dinklage - Tyrion Peter.

  7.  Thor.  I was really never into Marvel until I saw Thor & I do believe that Paul made me watch it.  I feel deeply in love with Thor / Chris Hemsworth.  Ever since, anything Marvel has my attention except for Fantastic Four, I just cannot get into that one.  I am counting down to Captain America: Civil War.  Eeek!

  8.  X-Men.  Now, this obsession, I can only blame on myself.  I got the first X-Men from Netflix when you got the DVDs in the mail & I was hooked, I went out right away & bought all three of them - yes, there was only three at the time.  Now, I have all of them, even the Origin ones.  When I saw the preview for the next X-Men, no jokes, I got chills.  I'm actually more excited for that than Civil War.

  9.  Deadpool.  I know this one kind of stems from X-Men but I love me some Ryan Reynolds & when he played Deadpool in Origins, I knew that I needed to see more of him.  Finally, my prayers were answered & they made the movie.  We saw it opening weekend & I loved it!  I mean, LOVED IT!  So good.  I'm really waiting for more.

10.  Books.  I guess that being a bookworm is the nerdiest thing you can be & I'll gladly accept that.  I have tons of books - books I've read multiple times, books I've read once & books I haven't even read yet.  I love me some books!  I just wish that I had more time to read as much as I would like cuz it's awesome!  :)

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

Tuesday Talk...

You wanna talk about something today?  Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessicaor any of the other hosts.  :)

The only thing I can think about talking about is food, breakfast food to be exact.  I want to fill up on some delish carbs in the form of hash browns, toast, French toast & a sausage patty (just to mix it up a bit).  I want to be sitting at a cute lil diner chomping away...but sadly, I am not, I am at work instead.  Boo!

I am just thinking about all the things I would rather be doing instead of work, like, that in six weeks, the hubby & I will be on our way to Vegas.  The closer we get the more excited I get to be away for a week straight...I may never come back.  Maybe I'll become a cocktail waitress & leave again.  That would be the bestest thing ever...okay, maybe not the bestest but it would be pretty dang cool.

Since this post is just all over the place, I might as well talk about the fact that it's Valentine's Day.  I…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…
