And We Are Still Doing Random...

Good morning, World:

Just three things:

Chicken is jonesing.  I miss my blackberry.  I want it back.  I miss that cute little roller ball that was so handy for tooling through lists and text.  I miss the little keyboard.  I miss that when I backspaced to correct something I didn't erase the entire f*#king text about 10 times in a row.  I miss that when I didn't look at it for 10 seconds, the blackberry screen didn't lock up and need to be unlocked before I could use it. 

What if time was of the essence, Sidekick, huh?  What about if it was an emergency???? 

"Excuse me raper, serial muderer, robber person, could you hold that thought?  I just need to UNLOCK MY F*CKING PHONE and call 911." 


Thing number 2.  R and I saw the movie, Kick Ass, yesterday.  I'm 46 years old.  Kick Ass was not on my short list, although it was on Teenager Who Lives in the Basement's list.  It is probably on most 14-year-old boys' lists.  But guess what?  Even though it is a movie infinitely appealing to teenage boys, they can't get in to see it because it's rated R.  I don't get that.  But I digress.  R and I saw this movie not knowing much about it because it was the only one showing in the short time frame we had that we had heard of.  Let me start by saying this movie is so outrageously wrong in so many ways, beginning with an 11-year-old serial killer.  That said, OMG, you guys, it was so funny.  I know I shouldn't have laughed at an 11-year-old in a purple wig taking out 20 organized crime guys with an unending arsenal of guns, grenades, knives and cool moves.  But I couldn't help it.  And if you like Nicholas Cage, which I do, you'll love him in this. 

Finally, one of my little Chicks has started her own blog and she's having a lot of fun with it.  She's been telling me about some of the things she writes about.  S (this is the S of the pennies in the mouth story) shares my love of writing and my cynicism, but in addition to that, she has no problem pissing people off.  It sounds funny.  I really want to read S's blog.  I don't think she wants me to read it.  She doesn't exactly say no.  When I ask for the link, she sort of changes the subject or pretends she didn't hear me.  Ummmm.  I'm torn.  I'm a pretty good little researcher.  I know some of her subject matter and what groups she's joined.  I'm pretty sure I could find it.  What should I do world?  Beg?  What would you do?

Have a very fine Monday, World

Chicken out

  3. Hey Chicken! It's S! I thought I told you the link when I told you I started a blog. Maybe I was wrong. Either way I thought you could find it by clicking my name on your follower list. No need to stalk me though, you can find it here:

    I was going to leave the link on a comment on your page earlier, but I didn't want to seem as though I was using you to self advertise lol. There isn't much up there now, but happy reading anyway!

  4. Awww S. I'm so proud. Can't wait to read your blog.

  5. Why have I not heard of this movie before? I'll have to check it out. I like wrong and I like funny.

    And find that freakin' blog! I'd do it in a second. You don't have to say anything or comment, just observe. If she objects, then my argument would be, then don't put your words on the Internet if you don't want me to see them. It's the Internet, duh. It's open to everyone last I checked.

    Hope your Mother's Day was great.

  6. I too have the "Unlock" nightmare

    If it was my filly-I would be curious to read the blog but, other than skimming every once in awhile for the saftey issues. I don't know if I would be a regular reader. since it kinda like a diary and I was a tween I would freak if my Mom was a follower.

  7. Hi Joann -Yes, the movie was really good. You probably haven't heard of it because it isn't marketed to us. You are funny-luckily I didn't have to sneak around because she reads my blog and gave me the link.

    Scrappy-my blackberry didn't have a lock. In some ways it's helpful (like how my boss doesn't get phone calls from littleb anymore) but mostly it is annoying. S is 23 and past the years of non-reason, thank goodness. Otherwise, I wouldn't even bother asking:-)

  8. I wanted you to stalk her- but she's made it too easy now with providing you with the actual address. Damn you S ! Your mother needs the mental challenge. That's all that's keeping her young. That and the blood of virgins.

  9. Blood of virgins, ha haha ha. I'm deep into season 2 of TrueBlood so that is perfect. Need. More. Blood!!!!

  10. Ugh, my HUSBAND wants to see that movie and he's WAAY past 11 years old!

    Thanks for making me chuckle this morning. And I must agree with you on that whole locking the phone thing even though I own one of those locking phones. If you wait a split second too long, you gotta start all over again! ARGH!

  11. That settles it. I have to go see this movie. I was debating it, but you've made up my mind for me, Chicken. Thanks!

  12. Glad I could help. You won't regret it. Worth every single penny.

  13. OK, I laughed at Kick Ass, too, but oh THE VIOLENCE! And I totally dug the purple hair!!!! I wonder if I could pull off that look. ; )
