Magic Mike.......what can i say???

In May of this year while i was on night float, a cute little Neuro intern told me that she wanted to see 
Magic Mike.  I had NEVER heard of the movie before, so she googled the trailer for me.  The next three minutes were a blur of Channing Tatum's beautiful body and the thought of a movie about male strippers.  
I was sold!!

I didn't even attempt to see the movie on opening night (didn't want to fight the crowds).  But after one failed attempt, I did finally settle into the movie theater with 2 wonderful women from the VA UC this past Thursday to watch the movie.
And this is what i thought of the movie:

The good: hot!

The bad:  Everything else

Seriously.  Everything else was bad. Magic Mike isn't the glitter-caked bachelorette party romp promised in the trailers...there is a story behind it.  A really bad story.  Basically, the main character, Mike (Channing Tatum), is a hunky guy who strips for the money but dreams of building custom furniture while living in Tampa.  His boss, is the strip club's owner Dallas (a marvelously slimy Matthew McConaughey) who wants to expand the "business" to Miami.  Unfortunately a chance encounter with 19-year-old Adam (Alex Pettyfer), whom Mike sets up with a job at the club, starts to change how Mike sees his long-delayed plans for the future, and ultimately Adam becomes a druggie and Mike quits the business.
Oh yeah, and there is this side story about Adam's sister, Brooke (played by Cody Horn), who ultimately falls for Mike.  And seriously, worst dialogue EVER between Brooke and Adam when she finds his bag of "goodies" that he wears to work.
It goes something like this:
Brooke (while banging on the bathroom door): "adam, come out here."
Adam (while shaving his legs): "can this wait?"
Brooke: "no, i mean, i found your bag.  It has costumes and g-strings in it.  are you, or are you not gay?"
Adam (opens the door): "it is"
Brooke: "at the construction zone.....wait, are you shaving your legs?  Is that my razor?"

It gets worse.  I won't subject you to it.
Let's just pretend i didn't see the movie and lets just look at the pretty pictures.
Seriously, it doesn't get better than this....

Wordless wednesday.....

Sometimes you don't have much to write but want to share your thoughts...... those struggling, feeling down, having a bad day, or in general don't like "hump day," 

And this is my favorite.....

Love to you all (all 4 of my readers!)

Finally Friday!

Not a lot to say....i think the heat has sucked out all of my creative juices.
Isn't this the perfect picture?
Only thing better would be if the pic was of Tiberius (it is not Ti- he has a bit more grey around his sad...he is almost 5!).

AND this has been the strangest week ever.  Who decided that a fun, booze filled holiday should be on a Wednesday?  I mean, i know it is the 4th and we have to celebrate it on the 4th......but come on.  Wednesday was like a little teaser of a weekend and then, boom!  Back to work on thursday and friday.  It was such a letdown! And now my body is is Friday and the weekend is coming but i am still recovering from Wednesday!

Oh- and i do have to brag about something that i found on the internet (because SOME people think i spend too much time on it)....
....the best body scrub ever (and cheapest too!)
basically take sugar, oil (i used pecan oil), and a few table spoons of citrus juice (i used lime)- mix them together....i put it in a mason jar.....and then take a shower.  shave your legs.  take a handful of the sugar scrub and scrub your legs, and then rinse.  then shave again.
i promise, you will have the MOST SMOOTH LEGS EVER! 
I made a jar for taylor too and she sent me a text when i was at work telling me the stuff was "amazing!"

Well, i am spending my Friday afternoon watching Friends on TBS (4-6 pm are the BEST hours of tv ever!).....which feels like a perfect ending to this crazy week.  Hopefully I will get a surge of energy to go out and get dinner (and drinks) or make dinner....... or something.  AND my friend Jen Sample and her family (BF and 2 girls- ages 3 and 9 mo) are coming to stay with me this weekend.  Let the craziness begin!!!

Have a fun and safe weekend!
