A Review of...Failure to Launch


Went to the movies Friday night. Something I haven't done in a while.

Overall this past season hasn't held much interest for me movie wize. With the exception of Brokeback Mt. I really haven't even wanted to go to the movies.

Then along cane this cute lil movie Failure to Launch. A cute lil film that is not overly original but fun none the less.
Staring Matthew McConaughey who lets face it I will spend $7 to do almost anything. (but I digress) Sara Jessica Parker, Terry Bradshaw, and Kathy Bates. With an admirable supporting cast.
McConaughey plays a mooch who at 35 still lives at home with his parents (Bates & Bradshaw). Yes they love him but enough is enough, and now that they are retired they want to "get to know eachother again". Something apparently they cannot do while their son still lives at home.

So they take advice from friends and hire him a girlfriend(Parker). It's her job to make him fall maddly in love and want to move out. Therefore leaving everyone happy-save for Parker who is now guilt riden for tricking this obviously love damaged guy.

All is happy in the end however, just as all romantic comedy should be. There are some very funny parts I especially liked the 'chipmonk scene' slapstick as it was.

A very cute film with a couple touching moments.

I suprise sheep...


I surprise sheep
laughing in the morning light
my muse appears to play but
the skies above love sweetly every
night untill voices grow with the
arise of the breath.
His life was gone away
and still one shouted with nothing
is death then echoed
by me?

Tonight was the Finale


Earlier in the month I blogged about my secret passion....Project Runway.

Well, tonight was the last episode, and Cloe Dao won. Her collection was beautiful, and she should be very proud of herself. Maybe one day I'll own one of her outfits. There was one of her dresses that would be great for my commitment ceremony in Oct.

A word about the other two of the final three... I thought that Daniel V. had the "safe" collection. However, he is young and there is a lot of time for him to grow and mature into a fantastic designer I loved a lot of his pieces throughout the show.
Santino, Santino.... What can I say I think I really have to agree with what has been said in the past- much of what is designed is not flattering to the female form. However, having said that, I will admit that your line was the one I was most eager to see. (not that my opinion makes an ounce of difference to these folks anyway).

Alas, Farewell to my guilty pleasure. See you Season 3. Wouldn't miss it for the world!!!!

The Oscars




Sunday Night, I Spent a very enjoyable evening watching the Oscars , with my good friend Carol. She, like me, is a real movie buff. Sadly, I had not seen many of the movies nominated for Best Picture. The exception being, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN . Which in my opinion should have won. However, as stated, I had only seen 1 out of the 5.

This year, the men were dashing in tuxes, and the dresses were lovely. I didn't see any I thought were downright tasteless. (with a possible exception going to Naomi Watts in a dress that looked like a shredded bridal gown)


Hats off to John Stewart who did an adermirable job as host. Overall it was a fantastic show. I didn't see near the stage crew that I did last year, and if it weren't for the win of "It's hard out there for a pimp" complete with a performance of the song (a show stopper to say the least-the very least) the whole show would have been a triumph!

I use to have Oscar parties but no one ever showed up so I quit. I would print off all the nominees from the internet and have a real festive environment. I really got excited over the whole thing. I looked forward to them every year. I guess I still do. There is just something about the people we consider icons getting dressed up and celebrating their accomplishments while sharing it with us the lay people....As a little girl I dreamed of being a recipient.
