Rocky Horror Picture Show

Sunday, February 22, 2009

What a wild and extremely strange movie.My friend Debbie referred to it a while back and I realized I had never seen it. I have heard about it and knew it had a large cult following but only had seen a clip or two of it.Mostly the big dance number.Got my curiosity. So I bought it.It is listed as a sinfully twisted salute to horror,sci-fi.B-movies and rock and roll. But it has some sexual explicit parts that were surprising. It has to be the weirdest movie ever.
I was like Ah S&%# quite a few times. Susan Sarandon and Barry Boswick are soooo young.I looked and it says it was made in 1975. Before some of you were even born.
So watching that movie was my strange and new experience for the week.
Even as boring as I am I do do strange things some times. emoticon

    If you find a theater showing it, you have to go to the theater to see it. It is a real experience. At least that is the way it here in my home town. It is shown as a midnight show. The movie isn't the only entertainment though. Many in the audience dress up, then get up and dance with the movie. Needless to say, it is an experience.

    Too funny! I was a young mother in 1975. I barely remember the movie. A lot of my friends would go see it every Friday at midnight! They'd dress up as different characters and repeat the lines during the movie.

    I was born in 1975. emoticon Believe it or not, I have never seen the whole movie either. I'm sure I'll get around to it one of these days. I have seen bits and pieces of it though.

Bill has left me today to go bowling south of here with his brother and friends.They are qualifying for senior olympics in the fall. I am becoming a bowling widow.LOL But then I am the one that pushed him into bowling. But I am glad he is doing it. I think he was felling quilty about being gone all day today last night.He got out the Upword game with me nagging him. He actually won for once.He never wins at the word games. But I hope he has a good time. He won't like riding with a bunch of people and having to come home when they get ready. Plus being stuck in a van with some say shall we say talkative people. emoticon Better him than me.

Joanne is doing good.Seems to be very slow about getting strength back but hopefully now that she is home she will get going quicker. I think this hospital stay scared her a little too much.I made her a big pot of chicken soup yesterday and sent it over. I never make that soup much anymore as it has too many calories with pasta but had to taste it to make sure it was right. It was goooodddd.
Now I have to make my pot of soup for the week.

I finished my book "The Help". Really liked it. I went to authors website and sent her a message about how I enjoyed the book.Never expected to get a reply.But I got one back from author thanking me for reading her book. maybe since this is her first book she has time to reply to emails. It may have been sent by someone that works for her but it wasn't written that way.

Carolyn-- Sister is doing much better. My leg aches are not the muscles.It is the bones in my knees. Cartilage is gone in both.Hopefully when I lose weight and if heart doc will let me I hope to get knees done.

Robin yes I am queen of soup. If you weren't so far away I would have made you a big pot. It is funny about soup tho.When I am sick which thankfully isn't often I don't want my soup.I crave plain old campbell chicken and noodle soup.I always keep some of it in cabinet.

Audra Yes my Brianna and all the grandkids grew up overnight. Five of them are taller than me and boy do they think that is funny. Yes I finished the world but not happy with it.I am thinking about taking it apart and gluing pieces together. I was showing it to my niece yesterday and almost pushed a piece inside.

Canbdone- I take advil like candy for pain even tho I am not suppose to take it. It helps some. No I haven't had knee surgery.Hopefully after I lose enough weight. My sleep has gotten worse the last few weeks.That is one reason I get up so late. yes I do have a great doc when time comes for knee surgery.

I think I made it to a few spark pages today. Well I better go do something halfway productive. It looks a little dark and cloudy.

    I hope Bill and company do well bowling! Sounds pretty neat - never have even heard of the senior olympcis before! I'm glad Joanne continues to improve. Glad you finished the world - you'll have to post a photo! Seems like if you're going to keep it up and out that gluing it would be a good idea. It's been raining here most of the day - but it's let up right now. Time to run out and get in yesterday's mail!

    What a precious picture of Landon. I miss having tiny ones around.

A bowling widow, that's cute! I wish my husband would get a hobby sometimes. Some days it seems he's always in my face. LOL.

I'm planning on going to the library this week and will bring your list you sent me to see what they have.

I hope you have a great afternoon! The sun is shining here and has melted the snow off the streets. Even though the sun is shining it's cold out there!!

I am up and at it early for me.Even tho I had another miserable night.I love to just get one night of good sleep. But I don't forsee that happening.My knees are getting much worse and I only sleep about 1 to 1 1/2 hours straight and pain wakes me up.Most times I have to get up for pain to ease up and then I can go back to bed for another hour or so.So I usually don't get up to (:30 in the morning.But I have all my exercises done and shower don and am dressed and working on my blog. I an going to make my sister some chicken soup in a little while and take it to her.

I have no idea how I did it but I had a 3.6# loss. I have tried to eat lighter during the day to have more calories at end of day.Maybe that was it. Plus I am doing exercises again.I still did not make my 10:00 pm curfew.Sorry Canbdone.The candle didn't help me. But I did it before and I will do it again.

Well I still have groceries to put up and laundry to do,and soup to make

    We both managed to release some pounds, in spite of our nightly struggles. Do you take anything for pain? Have you had any knee surgery? I didn't know about your trouble sleeping. I have Lupus and know about bone pain. I had to finally give in and have a hip replacement. I hope you have a good doctor. You're a woman after my own heart, Eleni. We'll get through this, Sister.

MMM, chicken noodle soup. You're the Soup Queen in my eyes!! I should make a batch of chicken noodle soup and freeze it for when I'm sick again.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

    Good Morning. The day is pretty here and I'm feeling better. Your comment was so welcomed. Yesterday I didn't feel like much of anything. Sometimes I can't sleep with leg aches also. Not always, but sometimes it helps to get up and rub them in Mobisyl. You can buy it over the counter. It has no smell and when you rub it on you do not feel anything, but later I've noticed the pain is better. -- Since you taking soup to your sister I take it she is feeling better. I hope so (still praying for her and for you). Congratulations on the weight loss. You are doing great. Know where your strength comes from and trust Him. Hope you have a great weekend.

This is my sweet grand daughter Brianna who will soon be 16. Seems like she was just a baby.I told her she is getting to big

Just got home from grocery store and I bought way too much stuff.I was hungry and everything looked good. I could barely get the stuff in fridge. I even got a yellow cauliflower to try. I am wondering of it will still be bright yellow when it is cooked.
I eat pretzels sporatically. I will go months and never eat one and then eat them for awhile.I have been getting a bag and then rebagging into 110 cal bags.I was looking at different kinds of Rold Gold pretzels and I spy some that say cheddar cheese twist.Yes I got them.20 of them for 110 cal. And they are so good. Bad me but I didn't buy candy Everything else was all healthy stuff.

My daughter Rebekah came by for a few minutes today.She was on her way to put in a job apt at an assistant living place.She takes her state test next week for CNA.
I had her change my bed covers before she left.Angel usually comes but she has been sick and no one is allowed here if they are sick. So I got a visit and bed covers changed.Can't beat that.LOL

Well I still have more sparking to do and more groceries to put up.
I still can't beat that night eating demon.I have only done it once so far this week.But I did it before Joanne got sick so I will do it again.

She went home today.Still isn't walking real well and will use a walker for awhile. But she is very happy to get home

    Good to hear Joanne went home today. It means she making some sort of progress even if it's slow.

Before you know it Brianna will be driving. Yes, they do grow up so fast! My daughter is 14 already! Yikes.

Like you, I don't eat pretzels regularly but I've been craving them. My co-worker keeps bringing pretzel sticks to work and they look so yummy. I have to buy some when we go shopping today if I remember. I purposely left them off the list because I don't need them. I usually buy Rold Gold, Jay's, or Schneiders. Schneiders has some yummy flavors too.

I've never seen or heard of a yellow cauliflower. Sounds interesting. I love it when you buy weird and wacky stuff. emoticon Let me know if it tastes different.

I met hubby for lunch and didn't do too bad. I did eat 1 slice of his pizza.But mostly stayed with my crab salad. Then when we went to leave it was pouring rain.So I headed home before going to get my hair cut.By the time I got home it stopped raining. Did not stay out of food last night but amazingly the scale was down this morning. A lot.Which means part of weight gain was fluid. I knew I was having trouble with fluid but it was worse than I thought. It happens and it is something I have to contend with.
But I am not giving up on beating the night eating. I think if I wait til 9:30 to snack it may help. I know I am not alone in this problem and like I just told someone.We haven't failed until we quit trying. And I am not giving up.
Gotta get out of here and get my hair cut. emoticon

    MMMMMM, crab salad sounds so yummy!! The seafood around here isn't all that great. I love crab and lobster but I don't eat it much.

I want a haircut too but I'm having trouble figuring out what I want to do. I'm so sick of the same cut. Sometimes I wish I was a man and I could just shave it off without a 2nd thought! :)
