Screw The Hiatus

OK, so I announced a small hiatus last week and a few people thought I was already on one.  What the hell people?  March is always a tough month for motivation and throw in that pesky real life, it sucks, not to mention that real life has been blog blocking me too.  The Minions are not producing their normal antics, people watching is fruitless and the news is already being covered by everyone else and to be honest, I am saving myself for the A to Z Challenge which starts in a couple of weeks.

Anyway, there are some updates to share with you my faithful readers and one really big disappointment that prompted me out of my hiatus, plus I wanted to hook up with Mod Mom Beyond IndieDom...wait that sounded bad...what I meant was I wanted to hook up to her I Don't Like Mondays Blog Hop.

Let's begin shall we?

I came home from work one evening to find the Trophy planting little seeds in little dirt pits in our kitchen.  I stopped and stared for a moment and then asked, "What's going on?"  The Trophy has decided that we are spending too much money at the grocery store on food so she decided to buy seeds and starter kits.  This is the same woman who can kill a cactus.  Well a week later we have sprouts and a plan to build a garden in our yard.  On the brighter side this means I will have less yard to mow.

Inch by inch, row by row....
Yesterday was St. Patrick's Day and I am not Irish at all, so I use it as an excuse to drink and eat a shitload of corned beef.  Each year the Trophy makes an awesome, yet simple, corned beef and cabbage dinner for St. Patrick's Day.  She puts the beef into the crockpot followed by the potatoes and carrots and lets it cook all day long.  The juices from the corned beef get into the potatoes and she uses the juice to boil the cabbage.  All this hard work and she forgets one thing, after eating this meal I can destroy a small nation with my farts.  Add #3 into the mix and we could conquer the world.  I apologize to everyone who I encounter today in advance.

What REALLY prompted me to break my hiatus was the devastating news that Mod Mom Tweeted at me this morning.
I've been doing a review of the pile of shit that is 50 Shades of Grey in secret (not anymore) hopes that Emma Watson would play Steeley in the movie and now I get this Tweet crushing my dreams?  Sons a bitches! By the way you can catch up on my review HERE.  

Dude, I don't care what you say, Emma Watson would make a good Steeley in the movie but Mod Mom went further with a reply Tweet... mean...maybe, just maybe, Emma Watson has been reading my reviews or at least the studios are reading my blog?  Holy fucking shit, that would be cool.  But that is just a dream probably.  I wonder who my most famous reader is (besides the Six Fingered Monkey).

So that is why I am linking up to the I Don't Like Mondays Blog Hop, the devastating news the Hermione Granger is denying being in the movie.


  1. don't worry about how that sounded - we all want to hook up with Mod Mom.

    and I heard that Alexis Bledel from Gilmore Girls will be in 50shades. she showed an all grown up side to her when she was in a couple episodes of Mad Men.

    1. Wait a minute...does this mean I have to change the Blog Hop to a Blog Orgy? Sheesh, tell these guys to hop and they HOP! lol

    2. Oooh I could get behind Alexis Bledel as Ana. That would be some good casting right there!

  2. Oh gawd.... now I am starving.... (Because of the corned beef, not Emma Watson... though watching Hermione get "Steeled" would have been interesting...)

  3. I heard the news on Today...oh boy. About an unlucky man who won't see Hermione in 50 Shades. And though the news was rather sad...well I just had to twee-e-eet. What rhymes with Twee-e-e-e-eet?

    So yeah, they said she was dispelling "rumors" hmm...who could possibly be spreading such rumors?...that she was tapped to play the lead in the movie version of the aforementioned dreck "book". She apparently took to Twitter to do it, saying "Seriously? Who woulda thought I'd do that movie?" Exactly. "WHO woulda thought?" Yes. "WHO? woulda thought." YES! Dude, she's cute and all, but not too bright.

  4. Unfortunately, Emma Watson will forever be the child from the Harry Potter movies and having watched her grow up, the notion of her in any sort of sexual situation creeps me the hell out. Speaking of which, is "she puts the beef into the crockpot" a euphemism for your sex life?

  5. Yaaaaaaaay...I mean, that is disappointing news...:)

  6. I'd love to see Emma Stone in that role.

  7. You're going to build as garden? I just happen to know a guy with a tractor and a cultivator. Although, the commute might be a killer?

  8. Am pondering whether or not I need to read 50 Shades...I do miss out on some conversations, most don't bother me, but the opportunity to commiserate? hmmm.... Happy gardening!

  9. I loved the book Fifty Shades Of Grey. I am so glad i enjoyed Christian and Ana's story.
    50 Shades Movie

  10. Ian Somerhalder has finally responded to rumors that he's a favorite to play this role in the 50 Shades Of Grey Movie
