Willy Wonka

Today I was granted my first award by the lovely Cecile from
All I Want And More. Thank you Cecile!

The rules are simple:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.

Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

This part is tricky. Since I'm new at Blogland, every blog I'm following is new to me, or newly discovered. I'm going to keep it simple and pick five people. (Cecile, I would pick you but you already got it *wink*) (Mandi, I noticed you already have one.)

So here they are:

Patti @ Book Addict.


Though I'm supposed to be writing about books, I'm trying to make this blog as original as possible. Or better said, more unconventional. At first I wanted it to be all about books and only books, but I realized that my life is not only about books. I want to shine through this blog, meaning that I want to write about other things that are part of my life.

I think that maybe you've noticed that I love watching movies and TV shows. I have about 300-400 DVD's and around 20 TV shows. --> (Not counting the 80GB in TV shows that I have on my computer)

You probably also noticed that animals are a big part of my life, specially cats. I love love love cats. I think they're the best pets I've ever had, and believe me, I've had all kinds of animals. How many of you have cats? I was thinking that I could write like a Daily Cat Tip or something at the end of my posts. What do you think?

What else would you like me to write about? I'm open to suggestions. I would really like hearing what you've got to say because this blog is for you. Anything at all that you would like to see around here, please do comment about it.

Leave a comment with whatever comes to mind, and thoughts about this. =]


Random Fact of The Day

I got Willy Wonka sunglasses today!! I will post a picture tomorrow (:

Okay, so they're not exactly the same, but they totally reminded me of Willy Wonka when I saw them. I was laughing like an idiot with the glasses on. They're so cute! ^_^ I wore them all the way back to my house though it was already dark. When I got out of the car I couldn't see at all and almost fell over. Ah, I love being retarded. (:


Movie Tip of The Day

'''Role Models'''


Summery: Danny and Wheeler, well into their 30s, lack something: Danny feels stuck; he's sour and has driven away his terrific girlfriend. Wheeler chases any skirt he sees for empty sex. When they get in a fight with a tow-truck driver, they choose community service over jail and are assigned to be big brothers - Danny to Augie, a geek who loves participating in a weekend Medieval reenactment society, and Wheeler to Ronnie, a pint-size foul-mouthed kid. After a rocky start, things start to go well until both Danny and Wheeler make big mistakes. Can the two men figure out how to change enough to be role models to the boys?

Again I judged this movie for the summery and cover. I was like, 'seriously, big brothers?'. But I love Paul Rudd and decided to give it a try anyways. That was a great idea, because the movie turned out to be awesome. In this movie Paul is not his funny self but a more grumpy and negative pal. But I still loved him.

Give this movie a try because I'm pretty sure you'll like it or at least will be entertained. (And Sean William Scott is gorgeous! Shhhhhhhh) =]

  2. Hi Hilda,

Though I don't go to the movies all that much hhmmmm. Of course you are having books I haven't heard of and my inner curious kitting is purring to know more LOL

  3. Linda, ingen orsak!

  8. Oh Hilda, you are something else!! Thanks for the shout out!!! I am loving your blog. Honey, you do whatever it is you want on your blog. I will visit you no matter what you talk about!!!! And I can not wait to see the Willy Wonka glasses on you!!! I bet they look perfect on you! You remind me of my daughter, she has a face for anything!!!!
    And loving your haul too!!! Very interesting!
    I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!

  9. Thank you so much for the award!!! And congrats yours!

    I can't wait to see you in your Willy Wonka glasses.

    I have two cats, a most loveable 13 year old cream siamese and a sassy 8 year old calico. *whispers 'cuz I have to mention my other babies* I have the most adorable 6 year old boston terrier, a pain in the butt 4 year old boxer and the sweetest 11 year old blue healer mix. All of our pets were either abandoned or given to us and we've had them all since they were kitten and puppies. :D

    My stepdaughter just finish reading Hunger Games which she loved. I've read the Vampire Diaries and thought they were an easy-breezy afternoon type of read. Enjoy your books!

  10. Lea, no problem girl! I will be posting my reviews on these books as soon as I'm done (:

    Cecile, thank you so much! You seem to really like my blog, I feel very flattered! Have a wonderful Thursday as well!

    Donna, you're welcome and thanks! Wow you have a lot of pets! A lot of work heh? Specially dogs, since cats are not really messy or anything. And that's a great thing, having animals that were abandoned. I heart you for that! <3
    I'm currently reading the Vampire Diaries (as of today) and I think they're alright. I'm liking them so far :)


    Thanks for reading everyone :)


Thanks for reading!
