I love movie marathon weekends! And Heaven Can Wait is one of my all time favorite movies. (The one with Warren Beatty.)


I bought Fifth Element for $3.99 on dvd. I plan on wearing ear plugs during the scenes with Chris Tucker.
I agree on Heaven Can Wait, but I prefer the Reese Witherspoon one.
I didn't know Reese Witherspoon made a remake of Heaven Can Wait. Was it any good? I had heard that Chris Rock also did one, bu I've never seen that since my friends, who know of my love for the Warren Beatty 1978 version, warned me to go live in a State where no copies of Rock's version existed.

I guess that means it's pretty bad.

Oh, and Randi, The Fifth Element?? Ugh. I found it painful to sit through that even once. Ironic, considering that I had been looking forward to it until I actually saw it.

I didn't know there was a Reese Witherspoon version either. Not that i want to see it. NOTHING (in my opinion) could be better than the Beatty one. God i love that movie.

Heh, yeah, i'll agree The Fifth Element isn't the greatest movie ever made. I just really really love Bruce Willis. Although that "musical" movie he made is pure dreck, and i'll NEVER own that one!

I ordered some Timothy pellets for my guinea pigs and some Barbie dolls for my collection. Yesterday, I ordered books.

*ears perk up* .... I collect vintage Barbie. PMing you!
Oh jeez...now they've gone and done it.

Although I really do like Serial Killer Victim Barbie still.
LOLOL! That was hilarious!!!!!


I went to the mall late yesterday afternoon because i had gotten a $10 off coupon at Bath & Body Works. Turned out not only did i have that $10 off, they had a buy 3 get 2 free sale, so i got a ton of Warm Vanilla Sugar lotion and other stuff that i LOVE!

On my way out to the car i went through Macy's. This dress caught my eye and as much as i HATE trying on clothes i had to try it on. It looked GREAT (a very rare happening) so i had to get it.

It was marked $44, but it was 50% off. Since i used my Macy's card i got another 20% off. And since it had been 3 years since i last used my Macy's card, it was no longer valid, so they had to issue me a new card.......getting me ANOTHER 20% off. The dress ended up being like $17.

I danced all the way out to the car!

I have just ordered some war movies to give my son on his upcoming birthday. I got him

Sink the Bismarck
Kelly's Heroes
Tora, Tora, Tora
Reach for the Sky
If you have to watch war-films, those are the ones to watch




(Plus, of course, Apocalypse Now (the 'Redux' version) and The Deer hunter).

And Platoon. Don't forget Platoon.

Otherwise, a wonderful list. I love Kelly's Heroes. What a great movie! Excellent picks, Miss Chicken!

Just booked a week at an all-inclusive in the Dominican for this winter! Pretty excited about that, should be enjoying Mai Tais on the beach in the sun right about when we get our first real snow of the winter here

Spent $14.50 on books at Goodwill and traded them at my local used bookstore for $49.50 in credit. Then bought a slew of mostly Trek used books - "slew" being around 25 or so. Good day.

Sesame oil, kosher salt, shrimp, milk, blueberries, etc.

I made dinner and hubby made dessert for my parents, sister and nephew. It was my dad's 80th birthday. It was a great dinner, too.

lifting wrist straps and a valeo lift belt - the belt is a bit large because the site didn't have a sizing chart.
