UFC 100

It's nearly time for new UFC and they're ringing the big 1-0-0!! Sweet, what's even better is that GSP is fighting (Georges St-Pierre Vs. Thiago Alves) and Frank Mir (Brock Lesnar Vs. Frank Mir) and Mike Bisping (Dan Henderson Vs. Michael Bisping). I've seen Dan Henderson and Thiago Alves fight before but the boys in bold are the ones I want to win. There are of course a number of other fights on the night, but I don't think I've seen any of them fight before, so I'll have to do some research and pick my winners (please note that my usual method of picking fighters is cause they're hot - it's Cathy logic, just run with it :) generally it works in my favour).

I'm also hoping that while I'm on holiday, they have some UFC in UK *fingers crossed* That would kick ass, not only would I get to see UFC live - I would also be able to ring Jason up and go 'guess where I am biatch" that's right UFC!!!! Sucka.

That would be brilliant, it would be the perfect end to my holiday.

More movies I wanna watch

I found this through @insidefilm today on Twitter, Daybreakers which is out in January in Australia. Take a looksee, it has Sam Neill, Ethan Hawke, Willem Defoe, Claudia Karvan & Isabel Lucas. Shot in QLD, it's got vampires!!

And them I found a different trailer for G.I Joe that I hadn't seen before, it's got Channing with no top & I got all cited!!

I think it's got a fairly high chance of being crap, but I don't care, I wanna watch it anyway. Well If there's no more bloggy goodness for the rest of the weekend enjoy yourselves :)

iSpam you!

I love it that my latest comment is about iPhone insurance, all because I mentioned iPhones in my last post. Maybe I should write a fake post about how Will.I.Am beat me up n then I'll get some actual comments.

Anyways, I tried the whole tethering thingy on my puter & it didn't work - not cause I can't, but cause my stupid fucking phone is broken. That's right ladies & gentlemen - I could have been happily tethering away for the last 2 years!! Baa Fricken Hum Bug! Thems the breaks & there's no point saying fix it stupid phone fix it cause it's officially out of contract and warranty, as is the way of things. But chin up, I'll have a new phone soon old chums :) I just have to plod away until then.

On a much more exciting note - Transformers 2 is on tonight so Dani, Ash & I are up for a hot girly date. Looking forward to it. I'm going in with no expectations - well okay one - that there be hot boys and plenty of them - but beyond that I'm just waiting for all the ploding bits, they're always fun. Oh & getting to see more Decepticons. So I'll try & not be a slackarse & get a review up on the old blog soon. I also saw The Hangover last week. Classic!! It was pure gold, I'm talking so funny I was snorting & I almost peed myself. It was a laughter flashback to the nut punching scene from Bad Santa - still what could possibly be my favorite cinematic moment ever & the second time popcorn has tried to kill me. No seriously - it tried to kill me. The first was - spookily I might add - when we went and saw Fahrenheit 9/11. Right when Michael Moore was talking bout WMD - the popcorn attacked & was dubbed and forever shall be known as the popcorn of mass destruction or PMD. Fingers crossed that doesn't happen again, it was rather painful.

Okay, heading off to buy tickets, blog ya later.

Slackarse? Moi? Well okay yes!

I've been as usual, negelectful in my bloggy duties and I'm really beginning to think that having that new fangled interwebs at home would be a bonus! I've got limited Twitter & Facebook on mah phone, but beyond that, I can't easily acess the net from it & as previously discussed my trials at blogging from said phone resulted in an epic fail. So I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet & get connected @ home, or get an iPhone so I can do me some tethering...on that front, I'm actually going to try do that tonight with my phone now - so fingers crossed. Although I'm not holding my breath. It would def. make life a hell of a lot easier, on the down side - I'd turn into a total mouse potatoe - cause hell, I'm so damn active now. lol.

Planning for the holiday is coming along, slowly, but still moving along, Ash & I are now officially delegates, with our conference fees paid for, along with flights, insurance & accomodation in Milan. Sweet!! We've found a couple of places to stay in Spain & a nice place (if photo's can be trusted in Paris & Berlin), plus quite a few scary backpackers that I hope never to set foot into. It's only 57 days til we touch down in Milan & it's all very citing!!

I'm thinking of getting an iPhone, so I can organise some ebooks to put on there, (this is where I conveniently forget that I already have an iPod that has lots of space for audio books), I'm not sure exactly how to overcome the whole away for 6 weeks when I would probably read around 30 books in that time. One good think is that Ash & I read the same thing, so we can swap books, but still taking 60 or so books away isn't an option. Obviously there is the swap box factor, but I like to keep my books, as I tend to read them more than once. Ideas people are always welcome. I could always seamail some over, as they would get over there in time for the 2nd half of holiday, but that seems silly as I'd have to send them back also. Who knows!

Talking bout books, some of my presents from amazon arrived today, so I have 4 new books to read. Huzzah! They are all sexy books, I got the 3rd in the Magnus Pack series by Shelly Laurenston and the first in her Mane series, (the 2nd & 3rd in that series are still coming), plus two Maya Banks ones & I've got 3 more to look forward too. So sorry book club book, I'm putting you on the back burner!! Okay it's half 7 and I've got elsewhere to be, enjoy the rest of your am/pm :)

Cadbury Eyebrows = The Devil?!

WTF is up with Cadbury's latest add campaign?? Eyebrows? Huh? I got my stick on eyebrows a couple of months ago in a magazine and was all I don't get it? Then the other day I was on the Empire website and saw the add with the two kids, all I can say is - Mummy! That shizz freaked me out bad. One thing it didn't do was make me want chocolate. Then I was in target on the weekend and they had the eyebrow mirror and I was all ahh...*lightbulb* I still don't like it tho.

My thoughts are if your add's that elaborate it takes me months to 'get it' and doesn't make me want to eat chocolate, there's something wrong with your advertising. At least the gorilla playing drums was funny, instead they decided to reanimate the evil spawn from Children of the Corn and slap some wiggly eyebrows on 'em - NOT FUNNY.

It was a weird weekend I tell you. There were The Eyebrows and then there was The Customer. I had to work on the weekend and has the displeasure of serving a customer that thinks romance/sci-fi/horror paberback novels are for imbeciles (sadly I can't slap our customers. Sigh.) Let me start by saying, I'm unashamedly a reader of romance novels, have been for years. Me loves the 'lady porn' as it's often called (no I don't take offence at that). Back when I was a young lass, I used to read the good old Mills & Boon (a company that's still going strong btw), I also added a healthy dose of Virginia Henley (historical romance). These of course were quite daring when I was younger, I don't really read these anymore. Now I'm more into Lora Leigh, Lori Foster, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Maya Banks & Shelly Laurenston (to name a few), decidedly not writing about giving a good hand holding and if there is any its so the hot boy can firmly guide his lady love to his sexy bits.

To be honest the old M & B no longer cut the mustard, I like my sexy books full of steamy sex, alpha hot boys and no beating about the bush...well maybe a little :P. Lora Leigh - you ruined me for M & B! Along with my sexy bits I like a good story and that's why I choose the authors I do, they so successfully meld romance with suspense, the paranormal, action, science fiction or fantasy. Which was something that the lady I was speaking to couldn't understand. The brilliant thing is they make me laugh, Lori Foster, Shelly Laurenston and Sandra Hill have on numerous occasions caused me to laugh out loud, howl at a situation so funny that I forget my place and have to try and pretend I'm normal so all the other people on the bus don't think I'm a lunatic.

I just don't get the stigma that sexy books have. A book is a book is a book people! Regardless of the content, if it touches the reader, makes them laugh, cry or grab their other half and give 'em a good seeing to, the book has successfully reached it's audience. Not all books have to be 'literary', win a Miles Franklin and be touted as the next great thing. Cause lets be honest...some of those books are boring as all shit and nobody wants to to be bored with what they're reading - what's the point, it's supposed to be fun. Unless of course you're reading something for uni, in that case, chances are you might be a little bored - but that's why the sexy book was created, to distract you from all the boring stuff.

As far as I'm concerned reading is for everyone, not for the few. So lady - you're a wanker! Go read a romance and then come see me when you've seen the error of your ways. Silly Woman.

Here endeth the rant...:)

Books I've Read in 2009 - March

Hark is that books I hear you talkin bout Willis *pout*, I thought it was bout time I added some more books to my list since I'm 3 months behind. So without further delay...here 'tis:

8. Warnings of Gales by Annie Sauders - This was a playaway and not something I'd normally read, it's about 3 women who take their children on a beach holiday, sans husbands (for two of them), except on weekends. Two of the ladies have never met before and their differing personalities and parenting styles clash with cringeworthy yet funny results. I didn't mind this, but it didn't have me banging down the door at work to get another title from Saunders.

9. Generation Dead by Daniel Waters - This book was great, it was a nice take on teen romance with a zombie angle and really who doesn't love a good zombie story. I'll keep this short here cause I've done a review for this, which I need to add, patience gentle reader, one can't rush a lady :)

10. Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter - This is the 2nd or 3rd book I read of Slaughters and I really enjoy her writing. The stories are all rather grusome, but she has lovely flawed characters which make you want to keep reading. She has 3 reoccuring characters, Sarah and Geoffrey (medical examiner and police chief respectively), they have been married divorced and are back together again and then there's Lori (I wanna say Lori, it might not be that tho), and she is a detective that works with Geoffrey, her sister is murdered in this book. I did managed to guess who the killer was, but it didn't detract from the story, I happily kept on reading and and waiting for the next in the series. I guess you couls say she is similar to Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs.

11. Pack Challenge by Shelly Laurenston - This was fantastic, I hadn't read any of her work before and got this and the next in the series, when I was in Melbourne and one of the greatest bookshops on earth, Rendezvous! They have sexy books! YAY! Anyway, Sarah is a half human half wolf, she just don't know it yet. But she's about to find out - all with the help of Alpha dog Zach. This was hilarious, the interaction between her and her mates (they get their own books), and with Zach and his pack. Brillo I say, I ended up reading this on the way home from Melbourne.

12. Go Fetch by Shelly Laurenston - This is the 2nd book in the Magnus series of books and was equally fantastic, pretty much from me putting the 1st book away to me getting the next one out was a minute, I just wanted to keep reading. This time around the story centers on Miki, Sarah's crazy weapon loving friend from Pack Challenge, I had to keep trying to be quite cause I was laughing so hard while reading these. Conall is a shape-shifting Viking that hangs with Zach and the Magnus pack, but he's sets his sights on Miki and won't take no for an answer, with hilarious results. Miki drugs him, she handcuffs him and has her wild way with him when she comes to her senses. I just can't wait for the next one 'Here Kitty Kitty, which is Angelina's story. I want it like yesterday!

13. Pagan Stone by Nora Roberts - This is the last in the Sign of Seven trilogy and ties everything together nicely, bringing the last couple together. The final battle takes place and if they win the Hollow will finally be safe from the evil that has plagued it since the boys 10th birthdays. If they lose - it's Hell on earth - literally. I don't mind a bit of Nora, now and again. I've really only read a couple of her books, the Irish vampire trilogy and the 3 sisters island witchy trilogy, which I really enjoyed. I've read a couple of her stand alone titles and seen a few of the books that've been made into movies - they are pure gold.

14. The Stolen Child by Keith Donohue - This was the bookclub books, so I'll keep this short here too, but this has been one of my fave books this year, it's the story of a group of changelings and how they go about stealing children to replace and how they cope with the changes that time brings to the world. It was beautifully written and I really enjoyed reading it although it was quiet a sad book.

That's all for March, quite a bit better than the 3 I managed in Feb.

Some new movies I wanna see.

While looking at the New Moon trailer I found some other new stuff that I wanna watch when it comes out. First up is Sorority Row, which is a horror and seriously, who doesn't love a movies where annoying sorority girls get dead?

SORORITY ROW trailer in HD

and then there's Fighting, with the very lush and very buff Channing Tatum, it's got all a girl could ever want from a hotboy movie...a hotboy (obviously), some fighting, said hotboy with no top on looking suitably pretty. Plus it's got other stuff as well, but I didna really pat attention to that so much cause he was all hot with no top on :)

Fighting trailer in HD

Then there's Bruce being all hiyaa! in Surrogates, which is based on a graphic novel and actually looks kinda cool, cept for his scary hair. That was the only thing I didn't like.

SURROGATES trailer in HD

Looking forward to them!!


New Moon Trailer!!

How happy was I today - well happy, that's what. The trailer for New Moon was released and after all the fake ones it was lovely to see an official trailer. Here it is below, enjoy I know I did :)


I'm definately loving the CGI for Jacob's wolfing up. He's looks bigger than a normal wolf, but not too fake and helloooo, take a gander at his muscles!! He's done a magnificent job at buffing up. I'm so glad they decided to keep him, I couldn't see anyone else playing him. That is one of my pet hates when they change the actor and you have to pretend it's still the same character. Well, cept for Dr. Who, cause he's all up with that regeneration thingy. Although I wish we were still keeping David Tennant, cause he's been my favorite so far, I'll be interested to see how the new Dr (Matt Smith), plays the character.

It also looks like they've fixed Edwards makeup, so he's not so pastily applied with a trowel, I'd like to see what they do with the sparkles. I don't know if I like Laurent's eyes either, cause in Twilight and the books, if they're hungry, their eyes are black, although the nomads did have a touch of red, which did look good, but when he's going to attack Bella, they're just red. I guess I'll just have to wait patiently...sigh...something I don't want to do. I want to watch it now!! I suppose I'll just have to watch the trailer until the 19 of Novemer when it finally comes out.
