The Weeklies ~ Week 28

108 Degrees in the sun on Thursday!

The Weekly Re-cap: I told you about my library – my Quiet Home Away From Home and the 4th of July.  I posted up my 1st poll – about your library use.  I helped a friend interpret her dreams about tornadoes and told you the history behind soap operas.  Last but certainly not least, I continued my interview series with an interview of my Mom 🙂

The Weekly Read: The Everything Blogging Book and Shift Your Habit.

The Weekly Music: EdXeno sang/rapped Vanilla Ice’s –  Ice Ice Baby during karaoke at Elda’s on Lark and it was awesome!

The Weekly Movie: We went to a pre-screened of the movie Cyrus.  It had it’s funny moments for sure, but I think they could have done more with the story to make it more interesting or humorous.  Not awesome but not bad either.
We also watched The Spy Next Door.  I always like Jackie Chan movies 🙂

Lucky

The Weekly Downer: A baby bunny falling into the pool and ending up in the skimmer 😦

The Weekly Good Karma: Michael rescuing the bunny out of the skimmer and us getting to spend and hour or two with ‘Lucky’ before we released him back into the wild.  Click the link – you know you want to!  The bunny was so cute!

The Weekly Interesting Facts: Since we met Lucky why not learn about rabbits 🙂  Rabbit facts found here.

  • A male rabbit is called a buck and a female rabbit is called a doe.
  • A rabbit can see behind himself, without turning his head, but has a blind spot in front of his face.
  • A rabbit sweats through the pads on its feet.
  • Domestic rabbits cannot breed with wild rabbits.
  • Rabbits are the most active at dawn and dusk.
  • Rabbits can jump to a height of more than 36 inches.
  • Rabbits can purr, just like a cat.
  • Rabbits cannot vomit.

The Weekly Food: Steak, Portabellas and Zucchini on the grill and Chocolate Zucchini Bread.

The Weekly Re-cap: We talked about NY’s hideous yellow license plates and a woman who dresses in the dark and must not have any friends.  I shared a hilarious commercial with you and told you about a guy who’s famous for inventing nothing.  We talked about a recurring dream I have and a major typo made by a large company.

The Weekly Read: I read The Unemployment Survival Guide, and I’m working on reading The Twitter Job Search Guide and Shift Your Habit.

Peter Facinelli as Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight Series. He's my favorite character!

The Weekly Movie: Eclipse – I was worried I’d be disappointed or let down and it was awesome!!  David Slade did a great job as the director.  I loved the way the fight scenes were filmed!  Peter Facinelli was gorgeous as usual!!  (He was voted the wealthiest fictional character by Forbes this year. We also watched It’s Complicated.  Funny movie with Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

The Weekly TV: Hot in Cleveland.  You guys know I love Betty White from my blogs here and here.  She’s hilarious along with Valerie Bertinelli (I loved her as Barbara on One Day At A Time), Jane Leeves (Who was awesome as Daphne on Frasier) and Wendie Malick (Who’s been in tons of things I love, but she is well-known as Nina Van Horn on Just Shoot Me).  A cool thing about this show that you don’t hear of too often anymore is that it’s filmed in front of a live studio audience.

The Weekly Downer: People who don’t return phone-calls.

The Weekly Food: This week we had Italian Mix Sandwiches, Egg Sandwiches, and kabobs 🙂

The Weekly Interesting Fact: The first toilet to flush in a motion picture was in the movie Psycho in 1960.
