10 Favorite Romantic Movies



Last Weeks Round Up

I did write other posts between this one and the last one, but Blogger ate them :(

New Schtuff...
- 5 layouts that Blogger doesn't want to post right now, so they're here and here.

- nothing really... starting on some new things, will post next week!

- Lucky Number Slevin (sneak preview, really enjoyed it, surprising twists!)
- Le Divorce (not bad enough to turn the dvd-player off, not good enough to recommend this to anyone. Fun to see differences between the Americans and the French, but this film lacks a story, logic and Kate Hudson with GOOD hair.)
- Kill Bill (just wanted to see this one again, a classic Tarantino movie. And I just like Uma...:))
- I, Robot (don't watch this right before going to bed. Not shockinly bad, not very good, but a pretty entertaining 115 minute Audi ad)
- The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (I unexpectedly totally got absorbed by the stories and almost couldn't stop crying near the end. Not a fun-fun movie, but I love how they've portraited the friendship between 4 very different girls who all have their own history... If you're going to watch this, don't forget your blankie, Kleenex, lots of tea and chocolate, you'll need them!)

- same old, same old :)
- and Claudia de Breij's weekly round up of her 3Fm radio show. Very funny!

- ah, time to tell about that fab 'little' easter buffet on Monday! Totally forgot to take pictures...
:( Dimitri, Mariska and Tracy came over and brought stuff too, so we had: red pesto and chicken quiche, mini 'tompoucen', sweet and savoury puffpastry tartlets, roasted ham, cheeses, salmon, salmon rolls, pommes dauphinoise, mini croissants and sesame buns, garlic mushrooms, lemon meringue pie, and probably more that I can't think of right now! It was WAY too much, but YUMMY!
- pasta bolognese
- vegetable soup

Grateful for...
- good music
- silence
- internet window shopping ;)

- life in general
- sunshine (wish there was more!)

Still working on...
- same old, same old, but things are looking up on more than one aspect!

Last weeks Round Up

New Schtuff...
- 4 layouts (one I won't share online due to strong language...)

- Trying to work my way through the Narnia Chronicles in bed, but I keep falling asleep...

- Worlds Fastest Indian (with Anthony Hopkins. Surprisingly beautiful! Enjoyed it very much)
- Aeon Flux (bad copy, won't form an opinion until I see a working version)
- Hitch (can't help it, like Will Smith in this non-Prince-of-Bel-Air-or-Man-in-black-or-other-cool-action-movie-guy-role. Can't help thinking there as some truths to his dating advice as well.)
- King Kong (better than expected, gave me the creeps with all the creepy beasts!)
- Passion of the Christ (imho: way overrated. Not much of a story, way too much blood. Overly visial where it was definitely not needed. But kudos to RTL for broadcasting it without commercial interruptions, that must have been a first)

- Still to Corinne Bailey Rae
- and whatever the iTunes Partyshuffle option plays

- Wantan soup that was not the success I hoped it would be (but I *heart* wantans...)
- lamb shoarma... (not sure why but I don't seam to be allergic to the shoarma from this new place around the corner. Enjoying it!)
- lasagna (an old time favorite around here)
- tenderloin with white wine sauce and baked potatoes (another favorite around here)
- Uhm... our 'little' easter buffet on Monday will feature in next weeks round-up, I guess :)

Grateful for...
- good friends

- walking outside
- sunshine
- the creative vibes that are still going strong...

Need time to research...
- how to knit cables (grandma is going to teach me soon!)

Still working on...
- work
- website
- a wedding album
- world peace :)

10 favorite bands/singers...

Difficult one... Shouldn't these be 10 bands/singers from who you like each and every song? No matter what cd someone would pop in, it would always be good?

I don't have 10 bands/singers from who I love ALL their music! I like lots of music. I love lots of music. But from a lot of artists I only love 1 or 2 songs and like 3 or 4 and the rest is only so-so or even plain crap!

So this is my list of bands/singers from who I like most of their work... and love more than 2 songs :)
  1. Aretha Franklin
  2. Ray Charles
  3. Simply Red
  4. Harry Connick Jr.
  5. Crowded House
  6. Jack Johnson
  7. Corinne Bailey Rae
  8. B.B. King
  9. The Rolling Stones
  10. Krezip (hangs head in shame...)

Cool things: pencil holder

Think I could make one myself from fimo clay?

Cause this one is from Alessi, so way too expensive for a pencil holder!

The green one would fit great into my new green art corner...

Happy Easter!

If Tracy is posting her Easter cutie, so must I! :)

Cool things: Who do YOU look like?

Ok, I actually don't know why I am sharing this...

Because it says I'm 43% like Reese Witherspoon?!
And more than 50% like.... I don't want to say it... 50cent... *sigh*
But it gets better: 53% Condoleeza Rice and 60% (!!) Beyoncé Knowles!
And I can live with 49% Martin Luther King as well...

I hadn't planned on sharing things about other people on this blog, but a certain young man is 67% like Walt Disney, but... 52% Matt LeBlanc!! And 54% like George Clooney!! Hey, I can live with that, baby! :) I think I need to update my favorite actors list now... :) (but the funniest thing on his list? Cuba Gooding Jr.) :)

Ten on Tuesday

Today's isn't online yet, so I picked an oldie for my blog.

10 favorite actors/actresses

  1. Jack Bauer. I mean, Kiefer Sutherland ;)
  2. Jason Statham (because I hope they'll make more sequels to Transporter)
  3. Bruce Willis (do you see the strong silent-type resemblance occuring here?)
  4. Clive Owen (very promising in Inside Man)
  5. Colin Firth (because there is no other Mr. Darcy or Mark Darcy)
  6. Uma Thurman (so cool in Kill Bill, so funny in Prime)
  7. Sandra Bullock (can't help it, just love her)
  8. Jennifer Aniston (always funny)
  9. Reese Witherspoon (same as Sandy, and she is GOOD in Walk The Line AND the girl can sing!)
  10. Kirsten Dunst (too cute, can't help it)

disclaimer: not necessarily in this order. subject to change every few movies or mood:)

cool things: if only this was true...

I *heart* my iPod. (really, it's love...)

I get up with it. (and then give it a rest in its dock...)

I go to bed with it. (best sounds to fall asleep to aside from hearing Maurice - softly - snoring? ;) NPR's podcasts about books or movies or food)

I have been using mine each and every day (since I got last november)

I'd love to own an iH5 iPod dock alarm clock one day, so I can wake up with my own tunes (I really really really hate beeping noises and screaming dj's in the morning)...

Listening to the newest episodes from As The World Turns outside with the sun on your face is WAY better then watching 3 year old episodes, interupted by 3 commercial breaks that together as long as the episode itself. (it's kinda like an audio book... an audio 'Bouqet reeks' ;) You'll find the funniest things in Podcasts!)

I love have all my music in iTunes, making it so easy to find that one song that I want to hear and making some quite eclectic playlists... or being suprised by songs I forgot I had when I let iTunes shuffle-play the total library...

I know people think I'm weird for loving to iron (well, I don't dislike it anyway) and with my iPod on it's even better.

So if this would be real (and not another April Fools joke), it would SO be on my wishlist! (Although I'm not sure Maurice would appreciate my choice of ironing music ;))

On another note, people who I go to bars and clubs with know where I stuff my essentials when I'm wearing a pocket-less outfit. There is only so much that will fit into my boots and it'll hurt my feet when I dance. My motto: the bigger they are, the more you can stuff with them without anyone noticing. ;) If you did notice, please don't let me know. I'm really NOT taking a purse, I'm no "Annie, hou jij me tassie effe vast".

So if this bra was for real? Yep, on my wishlist too. ;) Funny, the jokers even thought about big-breasted women when they made the 'ad' for bust sizes A to F. But alas... another April Fools... *sigh* ;)

Off to check on Ten on Tuesday, with B.B. King on my speakers! :)

Last weeks Round Up!

New Schtuff...
- 4 layouts...

- The Chronicles of Narnia (slowly)
- Creating Keepsakes - april 2006... (may is in yet, but I'm trying to save that for our vacation)

- Transporter2 : Jason Statham, super cool! More action-packed than the first and totally yucky people in supporting roles... which made Jason look even cooler ;)
- Tristan & Isolde (sneak preview) beautiful movie, beautiful settings, beautiful people... but still enough gory hack-and-slash scenes for suspense!
- the Wedding Date Only so-so... Debra Messing was a bit too neurotic for my liking (and I usually like neurotic people in movies!) and Dermot Mulroney wasn't acting, but just showing off his body. And a gorgeous body it is, but the movie was just too slow and not as funny as it should have been.
- In Good Company says comedy/drama/romance. I didn't think it was funny enough to put compedy first... it was more dramatic to me. But in a good way. I really like to look at Scarlett Johansson for some reason... it's not really her acting, because there isn't much change it from movie to movie... I guess not only men find her pleasing to the eye ;)

- the debut album from Corinne Bailey Rae, I could listen to "Just like Water" 6 times on repeat. Oh, and I did! :)
- Podcasts from NPR (National Public Radio) about new music
- still the Walk The Line soundtrack (especially Reese Witherspoons songs)...
- "Angel" from Sarah McLachlan

- too much rice (but my own fault, I cooked it myself...)
- last pint of Ben & Jerry's new Chocolate Therapy (half price-sale at the movie rental is over...)
- cruesli with vanilla yoghurt
- pide (turkish bread) with bacon and eggs, going to eat more pide!
- too many spare-ribs (

- shea butter (finally soft and shiny again!!)
- sudoku puzzles
- feeling creative vibes again
- first walk of the year outside on flipflops (if only just a quikie to the car and back...)
- first signs of spring

Working on...
- work
- website
- world peace :)

I don't fear death because I don't fear anything I don't understand. When I start to think about it, I order a massage and it goes away.
-Hedy Lamarr

Speaking of lesbian feelings *wink* (see lazytracy's blog): I *heart* Lydia! That girl has the best set of hands in the universe - and knows how to use them. If I could afford it, on her massage table is where I would be every tuesday night... It amazes me every time how all the sore spots on my body just seem to vanish when she working on them... even though she works them pretty HARD and PAINFULLY! But it's all worth it, I feel GOOD again!

So, now I am free of pain and totally relaxed, off to bed I go! *Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr*

P.S. Not the best quote for this post I know, but I couldn't find anything better suitable about massages? If you know of a good place to find good quotes, let me know?
