hotel beds are awesome

Still in Guelph. One more day and then we're finally done. After 8 days of eating out for lunch and dinner, I feel like I've gained 20 lbs. Blah. 

I finally watched The Transformers. LOVED it. Shia LaBeouf was great. He totally has that every guy, adorkable thing going on. The CGI was amazing. The girl was pretty useless. Yea, I know she's the typical hot-girl-lusted-by-dorky-lead but there's no way she could pass as a high school student and she has the most annoying habit of not being able to fully close her lips. Anyway, great summer movie.

I also recently saw Stardust (based on the Neil Gaiman novel) and highly recommend it. It hasn't done very well in the box office but I guess it's hard against all the juggernauts -- Transformers, HP7, Bourne, Simpsons, etc etc. The movie has been described as an adult Princess Bride. Besides, when the lead looks like this, what's not to love? 


Pictures of Torchwood's S2 cast with special guest star...



Martha!!  Jack and his messed up hair!!  Ianto in pinstrips!!  Can't wait til S2.  Why must we wait til 2008?  =(


Today is the 30th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. I grew up listening to Elvis and watching his movies as my dad is a big fan. One day, I'll take him to Graceland cause I know he wants to go but he never says.

I wonder if we'll ever experience the equivalent of an Elvis or The Beatles or the many other iconic artists/bands from the 60s & 70s. I've been downloading Rolling Stone's Top 500 Songs and it's amazing how many songs are on that list from that era. The highest ranking modern song was Nirvana's Smell Like Teen Spirit at #9 and the next one doesn't appear til #36 (U2). 



Tired of giving out those generic cards for whatever occassion?  My good friend, faninohio makes beautiful handmade cards and I definitely recommend you check out her website -- www.fanmadecreations.com -- for samples!  I've received a few of her cards and they are definitely something I treasure.

Once again, this post has taken way too much time and I must get some work done. 

 

One more before I sign off...

Especially Jensen/Dean. Angst is so very pretty on him but so is smiling! And Jared's smile just lights up the room.

Oops, sorry 'bout that. Will go correct.

I can see Stardust become the Princess Bride for this generation. I'll definitely be picking up the DVD. I also bought the book so hopefully I would've discovered another author.

Superbad!! I totally want to see it, too!! And yay for George Michael/AD love!! He was my fave on that show.

My co-worker's 18th birthday was the day Elvis died. Now FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE this is what everyone talks about on her birthday. Poor thing.

HELLO PRETTY BOYS! :D

That boy from Stardust is indeed very pretty- I'd see the film just for him then I'm easy. :)

You know I wish I could get more excited by Torchwood like all my FL are. Sigh. I love the revamped Dr Who though.

Isn't he? :) Watching the trailer, I always thought it was 2 different guys -- he has a little makeover during the movie.

I started watching Torchwood cause of John Barrowman. The first season was pretty uneven though but I really enjoyed it. Ianto being so pretty doesn't hurt ;) Love Tennant as the Doctor and am waiting anxiously for the next season. I'm in such a tv drought right now, I'm thinking about d/l'g S1 & S2.
