Conversations on cold meds and isn't that Captain Von Trapp and Princess Buttercup?

This is what happens when I get a cold.

I take cold medicine and feel better and then my stomach is like "oh hell no!" and the acid reflux bitch slaps me right in the esophagus. The cold has pretty much passed but now I'm trying to calm down the stomach.

See I told you I was still going to over share on this blog.

Dave and I saw The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I thought it was pretty good until the last ten minutes. What the heck was that crap? I read the books so I had an idea of what was going on but they did not explain it well for those who have not read the book.

And the cat! Why?! I can't handle anything bad happening to an animal in a movie.

Besides that the acting was great, the spirit of the book was captured and Trent Reznor did an excellent job with the score. I'm also glad that they didn't make Mikael a man whore in this movie like he was in the book. If you haven't read the books I hope I'm not spoiling too much by telling you he bangs every chick he meets.

Moving on: hello Captain Von Trapp!

I am a huge Sound of Music fan and I think Christopher Plummer is fabulous (and sexy).

Did you recognize princess Buttercup?

I didn't know Robin Wright was still acting.

Of course I have to compare the two Lisbeth's.

Noomi is the original Lisbeth. She played Lisbeth to perfection and no one denies that. Rooney had a tough job; you can't help but compare her to the original. I think she did very well, even though the eyebrows freaked me out a bit.

Drugged up on cough medicine I had this conversation with Dave:

"I'm going to cut my hair like Lisbeth."

"I think that would look good."


"Just don't do the eyebrows."

I should point out that I often try to freak Dave out by telling him I'm going to do weird things to myself but he always says "that would look good on you!"

I also told him that if he throws me overboard on a cruise ship that he has to take in my cats.

"Why would I throw you overboard on a cruise ship?!"

"I don't know but if you do you I'm leaving my cats to you."


  1. Hahah I do stuff like that with Boyfriend... "Would you stay with me if I was bald?" "No, definitely not." "But what if I wore a wig?!?!" "Ehhh...."

  2. Call me weird but I thought Noomi was all kinds of HAWT as TGWTDT. I don't really want to see the remake because of Rooney's eyebrows. I don't know what the hell that is about. I think I'll stick to sexy Salander...

  3. That cat scene was just horrible!

  4. Can I just be honest, this movie scares me. Rooney Mara's face looks like she will shank me at any moment.

  5. I haven't seen the movie or read the books. I'm pretty sure this makes me a minority.

  6. Not to hate on the new Lisbeth or anything, because Rooney Mara did an excellent job, but there's no replacing the original. Noomi makes me feel wonderful feelings.

    In my pants.
