FUN: Movie AMERICAN HUSTLE — recommended

AMERICAN HUSTLE — recommended

Interesting plot, but the two girls steal the show. AA for the sex that just exudes thru the screen JL for a yeoman’s job at taking a small part and stealing the show. This movie actually made me feel sorry for the politicians. That’s a powerful statement since they are like used car salesmen. Worth the price.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire

 

Movie is technically excellent.

The new reserved seating, like the stage plays, causes great confusion, long lines, and extra time to get everyone settled down.

Katniss is not as sexy as she was in the first one. (Guess she’s gone Hollywood. Had work done? Lost weigh? Toned up more? And hence, she’s lost some of the “softness of features” and sexiness.)

One main character changed, effie, and it hurts.

Best line: “remember who the real enemy is”.

Something we should all remember!

FUN: Gambling game — pull tabs

Thursday, November 7, 2013

Cars game:

Winning car: $100 (15 cars)

One $50
Three $25
Three $20
Five $10
Twenty $5

Progressive depending upon game.

675 tickets sold at $1 each

###

For each race, $100 is held out and added to the progressive pool,

So for example, last week, #7 was a $500 progressive. If #7 was the winning car there was a $500 adder. #2 was a $400 progressive.

I won with one of my three other holders, #10.

Then $100 is added to the #2 progressive to make it $500.

When I was playing, I got the #2 and #7 and one $25 and one $20 and two $10 and two $5. At that point, I stopped playing. I believed I had the largest portion of the value winnable.

Worth watching the opening. Pretty funny.

If only we could laugh off all the “politically correct” ideas as easily.

FUN: What a water bill

Thursday, October 24, 2013

It’s no secret to those who know me that I have “night terrors”.

(A special form of “mental illness” that makes one crazy in the middle of the night!)

Last night’s was so funny.

I dreamt I received a Water Bill from the shore house where they subtracted my address in VA (i.e., 1641) from the house address (i.e., 51) to compute my water and sewer used. My “fright” was I was at the office and couldn’t make anyone see the error.

It was really funny.

Not so funny about the “cold sweat” and changing everything at about 3AM.

But now I can laugh about it.

… maybe that bisll is in the mail?

FUN: Drink your pickle juice

Yes, You Can (And Should!) Reuse Pickle Juice

*** begin quote ***

Tossing out pickle juice is always a little sad — all that flavor, all that hard work down the drain! Sure, you can reuse pickle juice for your next pickling project, but there are plenty of other things to do with it, both edible and not! Packed with salt and vinegar, it’s no surprise that the stuff is great for recycling. Here are some ideas:

Cooking:

Flavor salad dressings and sauces. Use the pickle juice in lieu of vinegar in recipes.
Add it to mac and cheese!
Liven up soups.
Flavor bland veggies. Drizzle over some steamed or roasted veggies for a great flavor boost.
Lighter boiled potatoes. Add a generous dash of pickle juice to the the boiling water. The flavor works so well, you can skip all the fattening and unhealthy extras like sour cream, mayo, butter, and added salt.
Pickle-y cheese. Marinate soft white cheese in pickle juice for a great tangy appetizer.
Drink it! Try a pickletini. Seriously, it’s a real thing.

*** end quote ***

I do. Drink it that is. Maybe I like it because, like my LOVE of bacon, it served a need for a nutrient my body requires?

Maybe that’s the reason for my happy smiling disposition?

So many questions; so few answers.
