"Well, I am the best there is. Plain and simple. When I wake up in the morning I piss excellence."

I have reviews ready of what I have been reading and watching this week. I know the world has been waiting for my keen observations.

Movie : Talledega nights the Legend of Ricky Bobby. I have not laughed so hard in a long time! I thought it would be stupid and it kind of was but it made me laugh. The quote at the top is from this movie. The only down side was I thought how much my Dad would have LOVED this movie, and that made me sad.

Books; The Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop. Awesome fantasy fiction. The first book was a little difficult for me to get through, there are alot of characters, and terms to learn to set it up fore the rest of the trilogy. My daughter sent me the books and said once I got through that part I would not want to stop reading and she was right! I am sad now that I have finished it, I think the testament to any fiction is if I miss the characters when I finish reading. I miss these Characters already.

TV: Entourage the First Season DVD. I love these guys! I kinda wish they would do a prequel, like how they all got to Hollywood in the first place.

Well that's it. Late Christmas party tonight. Yeah its late but its just how me and my peeps roll

I watched Talldega Nights the other night. It was much better than I thought it would be! I has laughing my butt off at some of the scenes. But you know, I watched some of the deleted scenes, and thought they should have kept them in. It would have made the movie flow a little bit better.

I've not seen either Entourage or Talladega Nights, but I'm interested in both.

The books sound good.. I need something to sink my teeth into like that. I haven't read a book for pleasure in a few months

I wasn't too big a fan of Talladega Nights, even though Will Farrell is the greatest.

Glad you got enjoyment out of it!

Hope you're doing well Mel.

And oh yeah...finally getting around to adding you back on the blogroll. See? I'm responsible.

I started out our Christmas dinner prayer with "thank you baby Jesus". It took some explaining to do. I love Talldega too.

"I like to think of Jesus as a michevious badger"

Liz thats sooo funny! NO one asks me to say grace, they all think I am a heathen.

Slick I bet there was just too much gayness in the movie for you :)

Poody, did you see The devil wears Prada? That entourage guy was in that too. He is smokin hot!

Blazer, I loved those deleted scenes too.

I also LOVE Talledega Nights and Entourage.

Maybe I'll check the books out now, since you seem to have such good taste!

Happy New Year, my friend!
