    Rescue Ink

    Rescue Ink New York Times Article Slide Show There is just something about a man covered in tattoos being totally smitten by a puppy that melts my heart. Then I clicked the next button and one was being smitten by a kitten. I tuned into a puddle of goo. Just thought I'd share this with you.

    Coffee Cake...

    The fact is that what I watch and what I read influences what I cook. When I was rereading Lord of The Rings a few years ago I created mushroom dishes that made my husband flee from the kitchen. It took me three weeks to read the whole series, and I used mushrooms in almost every dish for that...

    *Gasp* WarGames is 25 years old?

    WarGames This movie is sort of woven into the fabric of my childhood. We were an "early adopter family", meaning that we had cable TV before many of our neighbors. Therefore, WarGames was on HBO in 1988. A lot. Like every day for two months. I was ten and I ate it up. Now that this film is...

    The Man Who Laughs (1928)

    The Man Who Laughs Due to the fact The Dark Knight did so well this summer I've decided to watch some of the films that inspired the performances. According to Roger Ebert, The Man Who Laughs, inspired Heath Ledger's amazing Joker. The film follows Victor Hugo's story about a future Peer of...

    American Teen (2008)

    American Teen An MTV generation inspired movie that follows 4 teens around through there senior year, and shows the "drama" that surrounds it. Part of me has this tendency to want films like this to be real; the other side of me knows when 17 year olds are putting on a act for the cameras. It's...

    Eureka (TV Series)

    Eureka I often get asked, "What do you watch on TV?" Well, here's the answer: Eureka, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, The Office, Madmen and some PBS programs. Mostly I wait for DVD or watch them on Netflicks on demand. It's a lot easier because I don't have to sit though commercials. DH and...

    I feel safe. Wouldn't you?

    Yesterday we had our annual safety inspection at work. Our entire floor was told that we were no longer allowed to have coffee pots plugged in near our desks, but they could be used in the support station. (Think of a support station as a hub for the floor. It's where we get our pens, post-its...

    Black Snake Moan (2006)

    Black Snake Moan This movie has been recommended to me countless times by people who have the same movie tastes that I do. It's impossible to escape, so I decided to rent it. Well... how do I put this. This movie is interesting, overly complex, and fun to watch. I've seen better, but I've...

    When life gives you melted chocolate...

    You make brownie cookies. Each week I make cookies for my husband and I. Mostly, because it's less expensive than going out and buying a pack of cookies with suspect ingredients. This week I shoved the packet of chocolate chips right above the oven. Well, due to the fact that I made three loaves...

    Oldboy (2003)

    Oldboy Sometimes I feel the need to defend my movie selections to my wonderful husband. I'll admit I do my research. If we are going to go see a movie in the theater I read reviews, look at meta-critics sites, and go by recommendations of people that have similar tastes that I do. Oldboy...

    Smokin' Aces (2006)

    Smokin' Aces Last night we went out to a half price book store, and decided to raid their DVD collection. It's the best way to find out of print movies and B classics. Oh, and the movies are only $1.50 so it beats rental costs any day. We picked up Smokin' Aces because it looked like it was...

    Once Upon a Time in China (1991)

    Once Upon a Time in China I'm going to let you all in on a little secret. I love Kung Fu movies. Yes, I know, they are plot-less and have predictable characters. Yet, all of that with standing I'm a sucker for a good one. Especially if it involves the following men: Jet Li, Bruce Lee, and Jacky...

    Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)

    Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby My boss thinks this is the funniest movie in recent memory. He swore to me up and down I wouldn't be disappointed. He swore that I'd laugh so hard it hurt. He lied. I. Didn't. Laugh. Once. Now, this makes me think that something is wrong with me...
