Once upon a time Alvin and the Chipmunks was for children

When I watched Alvin and the chipmunks the first time, it was fun and healthy and good.

Today was one of my son's days off from school and it was movie day. So they had picked Alvin and the Chipmunks the Squeakquel for their movie.

I watched with them and I found that this movie wasn't so kids friendly after all. Who needs all the sexy and adult innuendos? Can we just stick to funny and good ethics and lessons for our kids?

Some parts my kids were just bored and I'm sure they didn't really understand the little sexy parts too well but it doesn't mean they aren't learning.

This movie just pissed me off. Makes me not want to watch the other one they have about being chipwrecked.

And the songs being sung. Are we for  real? They couldn't find any other songs that would make this movie fun?

Yea, I wouldn't recommend this crap for kids.

You Go Girl! Talk About A Husband Who Cares About The Deeper Things!

I'm so proud of Viola. And even more so of her husband. It's great to see a man who understand the deeper issues and help his woman to have good footing to showcase herself.  Her true self.
Viola Davis stepped on to the Oscar's red carpet in a beautiful, strapless emerald green Vera Wang gown and said she purposefully skipped the wig she wears on red carpets and for film roles. It is the first time the actress has rocked her natural short locks on a worldwide stage, and she says her husband, Julius Tennon, saw it as a potential opportunity for empowerment.  "My husband wanted me to take the wig off," she told InStyle at a pre-Oscar dinner in Los Angeles. "He said, 'If you want to wear it for your career, that's fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are!'"

Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road & Bloomin' Berry Garden

My daughter is very much into all things Strawberry and Strawberry Shortcake these days. It's a move on from Dora :)

The boy also shoes some interest, but he has other preference.

However they love to watch an episode together. I love the little lessons.
Everyone’s Berry Best Friend Returns  in Two Fun-Filled Adventures Arriving on DVD March 6   Strawberry Shortcake is back just in time for Spring and is so sweet you will need two helpings!  Touching the hearts of children for decades, this wildly successful franchise is back with two more magical tales, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road and Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden, blossoming on DVD March 6 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

First, Strawberry Shortcake: Berry Brick Road follows Strawberry and her friends as they retell the classic “Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”  When a cyclone blows Strawberry to the strange land of Oz, she runs into trouble with the Wicked Witch and must journey to the Emerald City to ask the Wizard how to find her way back home.

Next, Strawberry Shortcake: Bloomin’ Berry Garden shows that it’s time for garden growing fun with Strawberry and her friends as they prepare for the Spring Flower Festival!  But when magical sparkles make the Berrykins grow tall and the girls shrink down small, they discover that even when they’re tiny, they can make a big difference.

Crazy Stupid Love

Yes that's what it is.  Crazy , stupid.

Love. lol. What a laugh.

Anyway, it's good to  have those jelly feelings for someone that moves you to actions perceived as love which in turns benefit both parties and even others if children are included.

Love surely does not confine to the human brain or human explanations. Love is God and love is. Who can explain God? Same with Love.

This movie was recommended by my librarian, and it is really good.  Well I'm very sarcastic to 'being in love' because I do not understand it and it's pathetic actions.  But I do understand it and wishes this state for myself.

Blah blah blah blah. Just watch the movie.

It's really good and silly and good and fun.

Did You Know? Feet - WW

I find it very interesting and it seems the consensus is that it is true.

The Organs of your body have their sensory touches at the bottom of your foot, if you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains as you can see the heart is on the left foot.
Typically they are shown as points and arrows to show which organ it connects to. It is indeed correct since the nerves connected to these organs terminate here.


This is covered in great details in Acupressure studies or textbooks.

Every time you walk BAREFOOT you are pressing these pressure points and thus keeping these organs activated at all times.

When I Grow Up I Want to be a Dancer

Cathy tagged me and I'm playing along with her. Plus it's been awhile since I've done this.

Thank you Cathy.

I think it will be hard to find 11 things about me. I don't think I"m that interesting outside. And right now I'm in the worse place in my life to find 11 things about me to share with you. However I'm here and I'll share.

1. Right now I'm so sad that I'm forcing myself to die within so other people can be happy. It's the hardest thing to do.

2. I promise myself that one day I'll be free. Like a little girl.

3. I love blogging and refuse to follow the stampede of crush to get to the top. I just want to be me, fun, in this little space.

4. I love almonds. I eat it with everything..well not really, but always with cereal and some soup.

5. I'm trying to find something to help me cope with life. I had my first cigarrette yesterday...or maybe it was the day before, depending too when you'll be reading this. I don't want to elaborate.

6. One day I want to be a dancer.

7. I won a dance competition in a club once. It was my first visit to a club (night club)

8. I'm happy most of the times. It doesn't matter if I"m poor or having a most terrible times. There is joy in me and I can't help to express it and I wonder sometimes how that can happen. I think it's just what God gives me.

9. I'm grateful that I know my mother even though I didn't grow up with her.


10. I have children. They hold me in bondage and they give me life. I love them.

11. I want more children. It's crazy stupid, but I do. You just know when you do.
Ohh nice. I'm done with my 11.

And Cathy's questions for me:


1. What doctor's visit makes you the most uncomfortable?
The OB/GYN. I have to take my clothes off and let a male doctor put his hand, eyes and OMG a flashlight in my vagina...well not everything in there but you know what I mean.

 2. On a scale 1-10 rate your comfort level.
5. I used to be a 2. I've come a long way. I'll get to a 10 sometime and people will still not like me or make me feel like I'm wrong. I've worked so hard to build me and yet every moment I'm forced down to be what everyone else wants me to be. I am trying hard to stay alive as me.

3. Do you prefer a male or female doctor? Why?
I would be much more comfortable with a female doctor. I'm usually more comfortable with females because I grew up with them around me and I've been abused by males and simply do not trust them. It's the most vulnerable thing to be with men, much less to have one as a doctor. I absolutely hate it.  And to say this too. My bones all clench at my male doctor, but he does have such a very good bedside manner that I do have to give him props.

4. Are any of your children named after someone in the family? If so, who?
No. I would not allow something like that. I don't want that kind of pressure. And some names are just ugly.

I've seen friends being forced to put family names on their babies. I've seen friends being forced NOT to use ethnic names on their children because the white part of the family didn't want that. Do not get me started.

5. If you could rename your children, what names would you pick?
I would not re-name my children. I love the names they have because I chose them. I would however re-pronounced my son's name how I wanted to do it in the first place but felt weird about it. His name is David. I wanted it pronounced. Daveed....as in an Israel pronunciation.

 6. Do you consider yourself a concrastinator or procrastinator or somewhere in-between?
I am somewhere in between. I work them out just fine.  Most times anyway.

7. Do you live by a to-do list?
No...not really. Maybe sometimes I need something important to be reminded of. Then I'll make a list.

8. What's the one to-do list thing you HAVE to do today?
I had to start laundry. I did.

9. What is your favorite Magazine to read?
I don't have a favorite magazine. I just read them if they are present.

10. How often do you shave your legs?
Rarely. I hate shaving. I get the itch and these godawful bumps that I just despise the process. I just wish I was a hairless legs and arms gal like some peeps, but I'm like a monkey. ugh.

11. Do you tweeze your own eyebrows?
No. Why should I? I like the real brows. Why pull them out and pencil them in?

12. Who takes the trash to the curb at your house?
Me. 99% of the time. Once my husband did it and I freaked out. I thought they stole our bin. It's the weirdest thing and I still find it funny how I freaked.

Tag!

Lions for Lambs

It was interesting. I kept hoping they would be rescued but you just know in the back of your mind that the helicopter was going to be late with the next round of bombs and when he said, not like this...that was it.

Good movie. Makes you think and ask questions.  It didn't make me cry though. Have you seen it?
