Lot’s of good things happening these days. Gotta stop and smell the roses.

Do I Really Need a Hero?

Image

Thanks to Bonnie Tyler and her classic 80’s song, I got into the word “hero” today. She makes damn sure we’re aware she needs a certain type of hero. Is there only one kind? No. In books, plays and movies alike we’ve all come to realize there can definitely be more than one type of hero.

Including a bitterly repulsive ogre that we find out is actually somewhat attractive.

If you squint your eyes…

But, hey. He gets the girl. So who are we to argue with Dreamworks?

Anyways.

This all got me a little obsessed. So I looked the word up on google. My best friend. And I’m not surprised to find the word Hero is described as a person, typically a man, who is admired for courage or noble qualities. Or the chief male character in a book, play, or movie, who is typically identified with good qualities. Typically.

What gave me the giggles was the list of google synonyms. It only had one word. Character.

The only thing a hero is synonymous with is character? Being a character or having character? Who knows? I think it’s kind of funny.

Or maybe my sense of humor has deflated since I posted those horrid Nic Cage blogs.

I’m sure the Comedy and Humor gods are more than willing to punish me for that.

Oh well. Maybe google set that up being well aware that a googler can view the meaning different ways. 

So round and round we go. Life is a mystery. The truth hurts. And love stinks. But before I start talking in circles I’m gonna go make lunch.

Have fun contemplating the universe and all its complexities.

Nicolas Cage – Part 2

Yet another collection of the fantastically fanatical actor, Nic Cage. Let’s take a magic carpet ride through the many more Hollywood projects our crazy friend took on.

I’m not surprised he managed to fit in such a BIG role such as Yoda in the classic Star Wars films.

Image

 

 

Another Harry Potter movie? Shocker…

Image

 

 

Lord of the Rings?? What happened to Ian McKellen?

Image

 

 

Okay, now it’s just getting weird…

Image

 

 

Really Nic? Really?

Image

 

 

………………………No comment.

Nicolas Cage – Part 1

Image

 

I admit. I love Nicolas Cage. What’s not to like? He’s charismatic, entertaining and knows how to take a joke. 

Not to mention…he is literally in every movie ever made. Literally. Seriously…

Like Home Alone. Growing up, I never noticed. But it’s so obvious now.

Image

 

 

And Avatar. One of the blue people?

Image

 

 

All of the Avengers. Cause he’s always been a great multi-tasker.

Image

 

 

In one of the Harry Potter movies…

Image

 

 

And even the Black Swan.

Image

 

 

Such diversity.

Such talent.

We could all learn just a little bit more from the great Nicolas Cage.

Christmas is early – Lone Star Holiday arrived in book form

So proud!

Jolene Navarro

I have always loved getting boxes from the UPS man. Today was extra special, he brought me a box of my book, Lone Star Holiday, by Jolene Navarro. Heartwarming Inspirational Romance. Love Inspired.

Yes that is all on the cover, along with my hero, Cowboy Pastor John Levi and his daughter Celeste decorating a Christmas tree. Well here’s a picture.

I was so excited when the UPS man delivered them I told him what was in the box. He said his wife loved reading those so I asked him if he wanted one for her. He seemed excited too.

After he left I realized I had my first book signing on the front steps of my house and no picture.

Here is a snippet from the story:

“Are you lost?”

His deep Texas drawl washed over her.  Lorrie Ann shook her head and searched for words. “No, but I’m sure…

Modern Philosopher Monkeying Around Phortune Cookies

Too funny.

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Fortune-cookie“How does one properly punish a monkey, when spanking it only seems to get it more excited?” — The Wicked Witch of the West

I doubled over with laughter, Modern Philosophers, when I came across the above line in an early draft of the screenplay for The Wizard of Oz.

What a sassy line for the time period, but also an intriguing insight into The Wicked Witch’s psyche.  We think she’s totally bad ass and in control, and yet she doesn’t even know how to keep her Flying Monkeys in line.  Intriguing, right?

Okay, you got me.  I made it up.  That line was never in any draft of the script, but it’s pretty darn funny, isn’t it?  Thought we could all use a little laugh to jolt us awake on a Monday morning.

I hope you all survive your Monday!  If it gets rough, think of the Wicked Witch…

F is for Friends

ImageLet’s take into consideration real quick that I am indeed a girl. Not a girly girl, but I was officially declared a portion of the female population on the day of my birth. And so far on this blog, I’ve self-promoted, made jokes and talked about new fads in today’s popular culture. What’s next, you ask? Why not talk some girl-talk? Don’t look at me like that. I can do it. 

A great 80’s song once told me that girls just wanna have fun. And what does fun stand for? Well, my great friend Spongebob Squarepants can spell it out for us…

F is for friends who do stuff together. 

Us girls can never seem to go very far without a friend as company. A great example is the group trip to a bathroom. Even I give into that stereotype every now and then. Especially out in public where you don’t know anyone and you aren’t really sure where the restroom actually is. Crazy right? But every girl’s gotta have friends. 

U is for you and me. 

Well, that doesn’t travel very far from the meaning of our letter F. But it does get a little more personal. It’s not just about the presence of friends, but the close relationship. The average human being values loyalty, faithfulness and communication. If they don’t, then they should. And this goes for every woman, girl, lady person out there. What do we love more than Ben & Jerry? That one person we can spill our little hearts out to. 

N is for anywhere, anytime at all!

Okay, so the U and N are sort of stretching it. We all know you starts with Y and anywhere starts with A. But I can’t really have a blog about FYA. So bear with me here. N takes us back to loyalty. Anywhere? Friends will be there for you. Anytime? For sure. Maybe not down in the deep blue sea, but all you need are some friends, a video camera for Vine, and a heart full of fun. 

Because that’s all girls wanna do, right?

Whether you’re a girl, boy, woman, man or in between…let me know what your idea of fun is. Maybe I’ll try it out.
