Okay, I think I'm a pretty smart cookie. Don't get me wrong. I didn't get straight A's and have a 4.2 grade average in school. Certain things make sense to me - I aced Physiology and Anatomy in school. I loooved that class. I worked in a doctor's office YEARS ago and I loved it. It made sense. Things like algebra - forget it! Chemistry? I made a D - my first and only. I may not be brilliant, but I can follow directions....or so I thought.
I recently decided I was going to attempt to make my own blog header, buttons and background. I have seen tutorials all over the place, including The Cutest Blog on the Block. I went to Scrapblog and built my header, button and background. I was very excited, until I went to put in the durn html codes and stuff. I am so aggrivated and confused and I apologize to anyone who might have visited my blog last night between the hours of 11:30 and 1:00 this morning. My blog was a lovely convergence of the old design and the new design (red, aqua, black, white). It was horrible. So, I have a great background, header and button that I can't figure out how to actually code to show up on my blog. If you happen to visit me and my blog's all out of whack...I apologize. Maybe I can find someone to code it for me.
So, on other topics, I had a hot date with my Hubby last night. We had FREE advance tickets to see The Other Guys with Will Farrell and Mark Wahlberg. This is the trailer.
If you like Will Ferrell, you will like this movie. It's silly/funny, although not like Talladega Nights. It's got lots of action and to tell the truth, it was better than I thought it would be. I do love Will Ferrell. I think The Cheerleader skit on SNL is one of my favorites, but some of his movies are just too silly for me. This one was very funny. There was lots of action and lots of funny moments. The language wasn't that bad, BUT I would caution against taking anyone very young, despite the PG-13 rating because of the sexual discussions. I wouldn't take my soon to be 13 year old and I wouldn't watch it with my dad, if that tells you anything. Mark Wahlburg was fabulous in this movie and there were small parts by lots of stars, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson, Eva Mendes, Michael Keaton, Anne Heche, etc.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable night alone with my Hubby. We got to have an actual conversation before the movie started without being interrupted by "Mom, I need...." or "Mom, she...". A few hours of peace. Ahhhh.
Hope y'all have a great day!
