Last night the Beard and I spent another evening with the children in the land of LOST. Back when the show was originally on TV, they were much too small to watch a boring show with mom about a group of people in an island that would leave you extremely confused even for an adult. But that’s not the point of this blog; I’m only recapping on my night because I missed news breaking throughout the country of the passing of James Gandolfini. As I walked into work today the words “Did you hear, Soprano died.” And for a moment my Mobster inner goddess stopped breathing…
My Heart goes out to the Gandolfini family, as well as anyone who ever came into contact with the man that will forever be known as …Tony Soprano.
This man not only came back from the dead, but he’s fighting his way through Zombies to keep from becoming one of the hottest walkers in TV history. I don’t know if it’s his soft-spoken ways, or the way he wears his hair but I’m completely infatuated with this sheriff…it might also be his undying love for his doomed family or his dead gorgeous beard (and you know how I feel about a good looking beard). ;)
#7. On the list is Sean S. Cunningham who is responsible for why you’re always looking back every time you walk down the streets alone, and also why you’re superstitious about the 13th day of the month falling on a Friday.
#6. Darren Lynn Bousman has made a life out of scaring me out of mine. His vision is so twisted that I believe it’s what has landed him a spot on my list. I still can’t sit through a, SAW movie without looking through my fingers.
#5. Tobe Hooper scared the coach potato out of me, I refuse to sit in front of a television for a long period of time, afraid that flying tennis balls or giant worms or crazy clowns will be coming out of nowhere just because a crazy spirit is obsessed.
#3. Steven Spielberg I have added Spielberg to the list because this man is the reason why no one like to jump into the beach and play chicken anymore. It’s because of Steven that when you see something floating in the water you think dead body or SHARK!
#2. William Friedkin is nothing to mess with; his vision is so demented that it’s sure to scare the devil himself. His intension is strictly to make you want to fear even your own shadow and boy is it working even to this day.
#1. Alfred Hitchcock is the master of suspense who has directed well over 65 films, and the person to blame for why you’ re always checking to see if someone is hiding behind your shower curtain. I know I do.
Michael Phelps won his 20th Olympic medal and 16th gold medal with his victory in the 200 individual medley on Thursday.
Last night’s race was so intense I completely forgot to blog about it, my eyes were glued to the TV and my breathing became so exhilarated I practically gave myself some serious palpitations. I was standing in the middle of my room screaming at the TV, “GO, GO, GO, GO, YES!” and then clapping like a ridiculously overgrown seal, that even my children came to watch the embarrassment better known as their mother, but I don’t care, Michael took home another Olympic medal making this a total of 20. Although Phelps stated that this will be his last Olympics, the man made sure he leaves with an unforgettable impression on the world, making him the most decorated Olympian of all time.
Congratulation’s Michael Phelps you have been a beautiful Olympian to route for, thank you for making every summer Olympics worth losing sleep over!
Danell Leyva took home the Bronze in the Men’s Gymnastics All Around Event last night! The men’s gymnastics competition was so hard to watch, so much emotion, hopes and dreams wrapped into their routines, and heartbreaking to see it fall apart by a tiny mistake that only they can catch. Levya’s routine and landing were so flawless if you ask me, but then again, I don’t know anything about sports, just that I did gymnastics for seven years of my life, but that’s not here not there. I have become a fan of Leyva and his support system, his stepfather/coach is the kind of parent everyone should have, and routing for the both of them wasn’t hard at all knowing they are Cuban American’s from the 305. Miami stand up!
