I'm a STAR! lol, not really.

On a completely different note -

Summer of 2004 there was a movie being filmed in Mobile/Fairhope, AL. My husband and I were called to be extra's. The movie was being filmed under The Novice, it has Alan Arkin (Little Mrs. Sunshine), Jacob Pitts (Eurotrip/21), Amy Acker (Angel), Orsen Bean (Dr. Quinn Med Woman), etc...

I was in the beach part with a crowd of people walking around. It was a rather hot day and of course, I got a nasty sunburn (so, if you watch the movie and see a lobster walking around - that's me!) - I had fun, this is something I had never done before.

My husband was an extra in the soup kitchen. He had so much fun.

Over the past 4 years we have been searching and searching for The Novice....last night he said 'I found *our* movie' <~ like how we take possession of it?! lol The name has been changed, as it usually is, to Crossroads. I found a link and it looked good. Heck, even if it sucks we still want to own the dvd. What does it mean when a movie was filmed and goes straight to Showtime?

The life of a young Jesuit seminarian is turned upside down when he falls in love with a young woman while working as a volunteer at a soup kitchen.

So, if any of ya'll have Showtime (Showtime Too), the movie is being shown 5 times in October.

BTW - I will have to see if I can find my pics from that day.

What do you smell like?

Perfume in your shampoo
Perfume in your conditioner
Perfume in your soap/body wash
Perfume in your body lotion
Perfume in your hand lotion
Perfume in your hair products
Body mist/spray
Baby powder/oil/spit up
walking by a Perfume assassin at the mall/department store OR
lil old ladies that walk by you that have the MOST awful/smelly perfume on

might I add that they usually are all different. I have been thinking about this a lot and since tried to buy all non scent stuff, minus body mist/spray.

What do you smell like at the end of the day?

What it means to be a woman.

Be what you want to be rather than what you are told to be, Be the change you want to see in the world.

Polymer ornaments

I create whatever hits my fancy and right now that would be Christmas ornaments. I am only making a handful and if they go, I will create more. They are made from polymer clay and aluminum foil (make the core out of foil to lessen the cooking time and weight). Then they are all hand painted. I will take pictures before clear coating them (to keep down the glare). They will look similar to the picture above, but different characters.
