i still love comic what???

i wanted to see speed racer tonight.
only because i loved speed racer as a kid...
but i loved/love comic books too....
and the people we were going with.....
well, i didn't think they would really like speed racer.

i didn't really think they would like iron man either.
but it was a better chance.

i wanted to see both.

lemme tell ya.

i really liked it!!!
i loved the cast!!!
i have this deep respect for robert downey jr.
i don't care what anybody says about him.
he's a brilliant actor.
and i think i kinda have a crush on terrence howard ;)
and i love gwenyth paltrow....and jeff bridges too!!!


it was cool and funny and stuff blows up.
i really liked it.
go see it!

next...speed racer?
or batman the dark knight?

i have a feeling batman rules.
christian bale was incredible in the last one...
and you KNOW i have a crush on cillian it true???is he in this???
gary oldman is in it, morgan freeman
and heath ledger????


oh and i can't forget michael caine cause EVERY single time we see him in something, my husband has to say "ELLO. moy name is moykal cayne"well, not exactly like that, but sort of...

it's really sort of creepy about heath ledger.
it's very like brandon lee dying in the middle of making the crow.
i loved the crow....

also....coming soon

new hellboy
(would you believe there is no movie trailer on youtube?)


the spirit

and the incredible hulk!

not really sure why they keep trying to make him so cartoony in films...
i'm not sure it works...but this one definitely looks a bit better than the last one. that was just bad.
they should be ashamed...

oh yeah!!!

c'mere and i'll tell ya.

i got my wii fit today!!!!!

first let me tell you that on may 15th 2008, i celebrated my 4th month of NO SMOKING!!!

but what i also did, (and for those who know me in "real life" can see) was to become a bit of a pudge...
i gained quite a few pounds.

i am terrible with routine and i absolutely have A.D.D. so any sort of thing that doesn't keep my interest is GONE FAST.

and i need to not be fat.
now, i was not fat before, you might say.
a little on the thin side even...
"you could AFFORD to gain a few pounds" is what i always heard...
but i now can feel my belly jiggle when i run or anything like that...
and i can honestly say...
i am not comfortable with that! AT ALL!!!

so hope for me lies in my brand spankin new wii fit.

(and maybe laying off the sweets a little )

so i went and got the thing today...
we set it up.
and of course the boys were all over the thing...
but i don't really know how to use the damn wii.
it's always set up for me when and if i do play anything, and i just have to try like hell not to die.

so i got to watch how to set it up.
we set up my mii for my height and weight...and SURPRIZINGLY it said i was in the normal range!!! but i did need to loose a few pounderoobees.
but my mii stayed the same.

we set pat's up.
mr. confident pat. (my husband)
it said he was overweight, and his mii got PUDGY!

just that right there was worth the $90!!!

my son is HILARIOUS on the hula-hoop thing...

i was trying not to laugh too hard...but it isn't easy.

the thing seems fab though!
i did some of the yoga (which i was surprized i was pretty good at) and some of the aerobics (running, step...which is sorta like dance revolution...)
there's all different things to do so you can't really get bored.

you have a little piggie bank that saves your long you have been at it...and the more you do, the more games you unlock.
it keeps a calender of your BMI (body mass index? i think...)
and what you weighed each day...
pretty damn cool...

i'm terrible with all of the balance games!
but it's just my first day...
so wii shall see!

wish me luck!
my goal is to lose 12.8 lbs. in 3 months

goin for the burn....

so i put money down a few weeks ago for the wii fit.

i am so excited about this game.
is anyone getting it?
i wish it had i could have a fit partner...

have a look and see what it does!
(i get mine in 3 days i think!)

i think it has snowboarding too.
which might be tough to get the boys OFF.
this is MINE! hahaha

now that's GOOD!

when my mother in law came over last month, she brought us lots o' goodies from the motherland.

so, i had the opportunity to create my very first trifle.

purrrrty good stuff!
i imagine if i made one every day for a week i would have it perfected.
and i would also be very very fat.

my first trifle

my first trifle

if you've never had a trifle...let me just tell you.
it is fantastic.
and i can't understand why we don't make them here in america. OR EVEN have the stuff to MAKE them.
well, we have poor substitutes, but not nearly as good....

they have actual cakes called sponge trifle cakes. i suppose the closest thing we have is "lady fingers" meh.
you make jelly (which is the stuff we call jell-O in america) and you put in these cakes. you can add fruit...fruit cocktail or raspberries...stuff like that...
some people put sherry (i'm pretty sure it's sherry) in it, but i didn't.
after the jelly sets, you make and pour custard on top.
we can now get this custard at some supermarkets like wegmans (thank you wegmans!) wait till the custard cools!
i made whipped cream from real whipping cream and put in a little sugar and some vanilla essence and put that on top.
then the hundreds and thousands (jimmies/sprinkles)
and then you eat it till you think you will pop because you don't want someone else to come along and eat it all up!

i am now full and happy and smiley.
and i am sad because i won't get another one of these for a very long time.
