Me too! Me too!

I follow Mark Batterson on Twitter. He's this really great guy who happens to also have this amazing church in our district. Anyway, he's written like a million books (slight exaggeration **blush**) and his little tweets are pretty witty. Today he had a really great one...
So I'm going to make that my prayer for today too.

What about you? What's your prayer for today?

...Aren't you proud of me?!

We watched Australia last night after the kiddos went to bed. I was excited to see it ever since seeing the previews a while back. It had been heralded as this great epic film. The only thing epic about it was it's length. An hour into it I got on my computer so I had something to do. The movie was sssssllllloooooowwwww goings!

Here's my real-time commentary of the movie. I wrote this last night as I watched starting about an hour into it...

I seriously doubt they even went to Australia to film it. It looks like the whole thing was filmed on a back lot in LA. Some of the cheesiest FX and uses of green screen I've ever seen.

When that little boy "sings" to animals...TOTALLY CREEPY!!! I'm afraid that when we finish this movie the only thing we'll be saying is, "Now that is 2 hours and 45 minutes of our lives we'll never get back."

"The wrong side of business" = Horizantal mambo

1:14 into it...

A friend just told me that the second half gets better. I'm kinda thinking that a root canal would be better than this. At least at a root canal they give you happy gas. I could use some happy gas. And why must King George always be in tree pose?

Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman...not a believable couple. Wolverine and Tom Cruise's wife??? Just doesn't work for me.

And the random Japanese cook??? This movie does make me want to see the Wizard of Oz again though. I must admit.

If I was all dolled up and a patroness of a fundraiser...I wonder how much a dance with me would go for? You think I could raise $5?

Ok. Here we go. Mr. Jackman is clean cut and all dolled up too. Something tells me that the wrong side of business is in their future. Thanks to The Music Man we just skipped on through that part. But I tell you what! That Mr. Fletcher is a bad man. He gives me the creeps too.

All this talk of "creamy" makes me want ice cream. Mmmm...I want coffee mixed with cookie dough eaten with cinnamon graham crackers. Oh my...now that is something I can enjoy. I lived on that while I was pregnant with the boy-wonder. It's a miracle I only gained 26 pounds. Shoot! I sho'nuff want me some ice cream now. I could go get it and be back before the movie was even over. I'm sure I wouldn't even miss anything.

Other things I could be doing right now instead of watching this movie...
  1. Reading a book.
  2. Eating ice cream...the aforementioned concoction, please.
  3. The wrong side of business with The Music Man.
  4. Painting my nails.
  5. Writing a more worthwhile post.
  6. Buying more shampoo.
  7. Folding clothes. Seriously. The basket's right in front of me.
  8. Playing computer games like this and this or even playing around with this. Can you say, "I heart MacHeist 3 Bundle"???
I was going to write 10 things I could be doing instead of watching this movie, but I'm too bored. Talking about those games makes me want to play them. I'm ending this commentary. My recommendation would be to read this and save yourself a few hours of time.

I know I know

I've been a bit MIA on here lately. I'm not sure what my reasons are. I know I have them, but trying to formulate them into complete thoughts with quirky one lines for a spanky post aren't happenin' for me right now. Soooo...it is on my to-do list, so I will do it. I promise. I also promise to post more often, not just tell you why I'm not posting every couple months. Mmm kay?

Now that the air is clear, I thought I'd let you in on a little project I'm starting. Actually I've already been doing this but I've decided to welcome some accountability into my life and join with a bunch of other bloggers.

Woo-hoo for accountabiblty!

I've joined the 30 x 5 challenge over at 2nd Cup of Coffee. You do 30 minutes of excercise a day, five days a week. And it's only for two weeks. You can do that!

Here's the kicker...You have to blog about it then. Ok, that right there will get me into major trouble because you all know how I haven't been blogging at. all. lately. So sorry.

Now, I must go and get my heart pumping. I have 30 minutes till my family gets home and will want to eat.

PS. I'll let you know how it goes.
