Lessons from the movies: Thelma & Louise

There are plenty of life lessons that can be taken from the movies. Commonly repeated mistakes include kissing a boy when there is NO orchestra nearby to provide the music, running the wrong way when being chased by a machete wielding killer (the stairs, always go for the stairs!!) and don't ever bother saying hello or goodbye on telephone calls, that's just time wasting ;)

This weekend I'm hosting a Texas themed BBQ for fan-boys and gals of Friday Night Lights. It got me thinking... what do I know about Texas?

Thanks to the 1991 Ridley Scott film Thelma and Louise, I know it's best not to shoot a man in Texas.

Otherwise, you will end up being chased by a swarm of policemen including a cool dude who looks like Harvey Keitel.

If you are going to shoot a man in Texas, make sure you have a sweet ride and your good looking best friend is along for the ride so she can have sex with Brad Pitt.

But don't be will die driving off a cliff. At least you will look good doing it.


I hope this has helped you as much as it has helped me. Texas forever, y'all.

Another decade bites the dust

Happy New Year folks! Hope the new year and new decade brings you much good fortune and happiness (and not too much from the flip side).

Ben and I eased into the New Year in a fairly relaxed manner after a swim and the cool change hit; a few beers, a little dancing, bag pipes (uh-huh I don't lie) and tasty treats with family and friends. Nice and relaxed *happy sigh*

As for New Year's Resolutions, I haven't really made any except a left over one from last year - finish the damn food intolerance diet so I can just get on with normal eating minus the stuff that makes me sick.

Take care & have fun in Twenty-10
