Me Fifth Element – Supreme Being. Me Protect You.

I am a self proclaimed movie nut and my inner movie geek is jumping for joy. This week for her Monday Meme, Strawberry Singh decided to dress up as a character from a movie that she loves. So now we all get to do it too! You can see the details of what Berry did here. (By the way – I love Labrynth too.)

I love movies. Comedy, drama, action, romance, mystery, musical… you name it, I watch it. But for this meme I decided to go with my all-time favorite movie ever. Anybody who’s seen it can probably guess right off from the pic – maybe even some of you that haven’t. [Plus hey – the post title sure helps too]   😉

Sometimes You Will Never Know the Value of a Moment Until it Becomes a Memory

In my downtime over the last couple of weeks I’ve been binge watching old episodes of Numbers along with anyone who will sit down and watch with me. The show is near ten years old and it’s kind of interesting to see what the hot topics were at that time and a little scary to realize, when it comes to some topics, that things really haven’t changed all that much.

I am up way too late yet again so this is going to be short and sweet. For this post I have used some things from Oneword, but have also included a couple new releases from Tameless. All the credits of what’s what and where to get things are below. 🙂

Kissing the Old Year Out, Kissing the New Year In

One minute to midnight
One minute to go
One minute to say good-bye
Before we say hello

Let’s start the new year right
Twelve o’clock tonight
When they dim the light
Let’s begin

Kissing the old year out
Kissing the new year in

There is Nothing Like a Dream to Create the Future

So 2014 is quickly reaching its end. This year has gone by so quickly. It seems the older I get, the faster they pass. As the new year starts though, there is anticipation for what is to come – a new relationship or job, a move to a new place, or a big family event, etc. – whatever you are looking forward to.

Love is What’s in the Room With You at Christmas if You Stop Opening Presents and Listen

…Merry Christmas, darling
We’re apart, that’s true
But I can dream and in my dreams
I’m Christmas-ing with you…

My family has had the tradition of having Chinese food for Christmas Eve dinner for over 40 years. So when I saw the Not So X-mas Dinner that Le Primtif had in their gacha machine at The Arcade I knew it was a must have set for me. Lucky for me the machine was very nice to me and all I had to get on my own through trading was the fried rice. After all, what’s Chinese food without the fried rice?

The hardest arithmetic to master is that which enables us to count our blessings

It’s far too easy to forget that we have so many things to be thankful for in our lives. Jobs ending, relationships gone bad, never seeming to have enough of what we want… things like those all tend to weigh so heavily on us we have a difficult time remembering the things we do have. I am as guilty of that as the next person. I have to make a conscious effort at times to take a step back and look at the big picture and all that I do have, instead of focusing on the little pictures of what I don’t.
