Happy New Year!

My wishes for you dahlings in year 2010
Great start for Jan,
Love for Feb,
Peace for march,
No worries for April
Fun for May,
Joy for June to Nov,
Happiness for Dec,
Have a lucky and wonderful 2010!

New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights. 
Hamilton Wright Mabie

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better man.
Benjamin Franklin

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.
T.S Eliot

Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past.
Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
 Brook Atkinson 

“Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”
Quoted by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850

Wishing you all the absolute best in 2010,

I think there must be something wrong with me...

"I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I'm not happy. I don't feel the way I'm supposed to feel.
I just don't understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards and decorating trees and all that, but I'm still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed."
-Charlie Brown

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...

Thirsty Thursdays with Miss Go Lightly

Well hello there dahlings! Won't you please join me for a drink this Thursday evening? Given that the weather is a bit "frightful" out there, and since we are in holiday mode, I thought that this Winter Wonderland Martini would fit like a hand in glove.

"Walking in a Winter Wonderland" may have a whole new meaning when paired with this cocktail. You just might be inspired to get frisky in the snow!

2 oz Van Gogh Vanilla Vodka
1 oz White crème de cacao
2 oz White chocolate liqueur
1 oz Cream
½ Teaspoon of coconut flakes
1 White chocolate wafer stick

Add the vanilla vodka, white chocolate liqueur, crème de cacao and cream into a shaker and shake over ice. Strain martini into a martini glass and add half a teaspoon of coconut flakes. Stir martini gently with white chocolate wafer stick to create a blizzard!


Last Christmas I gave you my heart...

Ah yes...who remembers this classic Wham Christmas Song?! ;)

Silver and Gold...

Good Wednesday morning to you dahlings! I know I've been a bad blogger these past weeks, but know that I am still in the background blog hopping ;) and reading your wonderful posts! As you know I've been on a roller coaster ride this past month..., and well.. I am still trying and hopeful that things and life will get better so please keep your fingers crossed for me! :)

Anyhow, I hope that all of you have the Christmas mojo and that you are all staying warm and cozy where ever you may be! and since we're in the holiday spirit, I am sure most of you will remember the classic Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer movie? That movie has always held a special part of my heart, and I have to watch it every year. It makes me feel like a 5 year old all over again and it makes me feel very nostalgic...yes, the animation might seem cheesy or 'lame' to some of the kids nowadays, but this movie is a prime example of how everything back then was so simple, but yet as kids you were captivated by it's simplicity! Ah the good ol days!

Here are a few of my favorite video clips from that movie..the soundtrack to this movie is one of my absolute Christmas favorites! Enjoy!

Fondly yours,

"You know what's wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You're chicken, you've got no guts. You're afraid to stick out your chin and say, "Okay, life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness." You call yourself a free spirit, a "wild thing," and you're terrified somebody's gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you're already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it's not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It's wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."

Hoooola Hoop!

Here is a classic Christmas song from three troublemaking little fellas I am sure we all remember and love ;)

The Chipmunk Song...

Don't Make Fun of Daddy's Voice

Happy Thursday dahlings! As you may know, I am a huuuuge Morrissey fan and will jump at any opportunity to see him... so for those of you who fancy the Mozzer, I would like to share a clip from last night's George Lopez's show where Moz closes the show with his performance of Don't Make Fun of Daddy's Voice.

Unfortunately, I wasn't one of the lucky ones to win a pair of tickets to the show (or tickets to any of his L.A shows for that matter) ::sighs::  :( so... this is the closest I was able to get to the Mozzer! Even at 50, he is still adorable! Viva Moz!

I had been a bit hesitant on watching Precious.. when it was first released for a few reasons: first because my co-worker had already spoiled it for me, secondly because I didn't think it would match up to the hype it was given, and most importantly because I wasn't sure that I could handle the gruesomeness in it.  But given that there was nothing that really caught my attention at the theater this weekend, I decided to watch it... and while I can't classify it as a 'great' movie because that is not the category I would place it in, it was a great depiction of  the sometimes overlooked abuse that exists in our humanity, and it depicts the suffering and hardships that some abused children are sadly and unfortunately succumbed to. 

Precious is based on the novel Push by Sapphire and executive-produced by Oprah Winfrey and Tyler Perry, who came on board after its screening at Sundance. The film is set in late 80s Harlem, where 16-year-old Claireece Precious Jones (Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe) is facing more hardships than it seems one person should ever endure. Her mother Mary (Mo'Nique) physically and emotionally abuses her and she's pregnant by her drug addict father for the second time. She's illiterate and mostly quiet (at first), but has an elaborate inner life the film portrays in fantasy sequences. When Precious is threatened with expulsion because she's pregnant she's offered the chance to transfer to an alternative school. Her new teacher, Blu Rain (Paula Patton), and Mrs. Weiss (Mariah Carey), a social worker, help Precious begin to deal with the abuse she's suffering.


and that is all I am going to tell you about Precious... If you decide to watch it, I would recommend not reading too much into it, watch it as it is, putting any  preconceived  notions of the book, or movie aside..and have a box of tissues handy...Precious was poignant, very raw, and horrific at demonstrates humanity stripped down to its worst moments flashing you behind locked doors, but it is also humanity lifted to its best moments of perseverance, resilience, hope, and faith.

If you've watched Precious or read the book Push, what are your thoughts on it? 

Fondly Yours,
