No idle hands here...

I accomplished quite a bit today. The weather was cool but dry and I was able to resume my post Katrina repairs. I tore out the remaining sole plates on the southern side of my utility room, along with the corner studs and four bad sections of wall studs. I replaced everything except the corner studs. I ripped some 2x8's I found last week into 2x4's and pieced them together ready to be nailed into the corner as soon as trim them on my dad's table saw.

I didn't stop from the time I got up until it was dusk. I didn't eat breakfast and didn't stop for lunch except to have a hot chocolate. I'm pretty hungry so I'll cut this short.

However, if you'd like to see a 30 second condensation of one of my two favorite Christmas movies, ("Miracle on 34th Street" is the second) go here for "It's A Wonderful Life," Bunny style. I hope you enjoy it as the message still gets through.

Also: from el_jefe and others:

You Are Cupid

A total romantic, you're always crushing on a new reindeer.

Why You're Naughty: You've caused so much drama, all the reindeers aren't speaking to each other.

Why You're Nice: You have a knack for playing matchmaker. You even hooked Rudolph up!


Oh deer... I've been found out!

Hope you noticed the three extra scenes. You had to click on the silhouettes (sp?).

That... was... BIZARRE... I LOVED IT!!! =P

Also, my results:

You Are Rudolph

Sweet and shy, you tend to be happiest when you're making someone else happy.

Why You're Naughty: You sometimes stick that nose where it doesn't belong

Why You're Nice: Christmas would be a sad affair without you!


Don't know that that's entirely true, but that's what I got...

I'm sure the last part just has to be true.

April... a little elf with an ax behind her back!

p.s. Did you make sure to click on the three extra scenes?

OMGosh, no - I missed it... So then I went back and found them! *lol*

I also just saw the bunny version of A Christmas Story (my FAVORITE Christmas movie EVER!!)... It was just too hilarious! I've decided to bookmark the site...

I have "A Christmas Story" ordered from the library. All six copies were out but I'm first in line. I have never seen it from start to end.

Btw, check out "The Exorcist" and the other Bunny movies if you can find a few minutes to have some fun.

I am off-topic, I am sorry, but I wanted to give you a little icon, which is it:



Of course you use it if you want to, and I was wondering, is it one related with "The invisible man" we were talking about earlier?

:)

Thanks for the icon and the thought. I have a dvd of "The Last Man on Earth." It was based on Richard Matheson's, "I Am Legend" and was remade years later starring Charlton Heston as "The Omega Man." A lot like "Night of the Living Dead" with the zombies and stuff.

But no, Judith, that is not the movie I was talking about. "The Invisible Man Returns" was made in 1940, I think, and was the sequel to "The Invisible Man." Of course, Vincent Price was "invisible" throughout the movie and only "appeared" at the end.

I hope you had a nice giggle at this one.

Haha! I have The Last Man on Earth as well - I LOVE IT - and I only spent $1 on it, which is pretty darn cool...

I think I got it at Best Buy for $1.99 or so. Did you also see "Omega Man?"

Heston was pretty darn good.

I'll have to get out more and shop for bargains... if I ever get any spare time and/or spending money.

No, I've yet to see Omega Man...

I'm a professional cheapskate, and I'm proud of it! Why spend $10 on a dvd, when you can get the same one for just $1 elsewhere? I mean, you're mostly paying for the packaging! *lol*

You're not a cheapskate... you're a smart shopper.

The library is a good place to find movies you may have missed. I just saw that "The Omega Man" is available at a local library here on DVD.

Also, since I am not a big shopper, are there any chain stores you could recommend for buying cheap DVDs? Of course, after Katrina, the pickings here are still rather slim.

You can find lots of dollar dvd's at places like Dollar Tree, Dollar General, and even at Target. I've also seen dirt cheap dvd's at the gas stations... Only problem is a veeeerrry limited selection - so just keep your eye out, and you're bound to find plenty of goodies!
