There are three that come to mind. And all of them come from movies…

 

 

The first one is “Eat The Cake Anna Mae”. Here’s the thing I’m the kick of person who considers herself a tad adventurous, over the years I’m encompassed the motto, I’ll try anything once ….but that’s only for food, my mother isn’t the same… she like what she likes and she’s not gonna go any further than that…. new food is like a stranger to her, she doesn’t trust it, and she need a good recommendation for at least 3 people she trusts before she tries it. Case in point… Yesterday we were at World Market and I purchased Red Bean Mochi, which I got because I thought the taste would be a bit more familiar to her than Taro. Now when we were in the store she actually asked to try them…. then she asked again when we got back to her house…. she tried it… and spit it out…. more than likely it was the texture, it can be a bit off putting your first time. I asked her to try it again…. and refused… I asked a bit more strongly…. I picked up the Mochi and said, “Eat The Cake Anna Mae” ,she refused again…. Fine, you wasted a perfectly good Mochi! More for me!!!!

 

The second one is , “He Don’t Eat No Meat?!…..That’s okay, we’ll have Lamb”. I quote this movie every single day, and I’m beyond excited that there is a sequel coming out soon…

I am not a vegetarian, but I don’t eat a lot of meat, ever since my liver transplant it seems like my stomach has a had time processing meat, so I don’t eat it that often….usually around the holidays my mom will call my brother and ask my brother and I if there is anything special we would like to have. I’m usually, “Whatever you make is fine” because if there is something that I don’t like I simply won’t eat it… I usually eat the sides anyway… or things that don’t have meat in them. This year I was craving lasagna (my mom only makes it around Christmas time) and my brother always asks for it…. so this year I requested a meat-less version…. if you read the above paragraph then you know not only was the request shocking, I think it nearly friend her brain….. needless to say we had lasagna with meat in it….. but in my mother defense you did what she felt was a compromise and used Italian sausage instead….. riiiiigggghhhhhtttt.

 

 

One the rare occasion that I’m out shopping (I prefer online… because I find looking for clothes both frustrating and tiring) and I find something that I like, but after closer inspection it’s not what I thought it was I will usually say, “It’s not even real leather!” Which in my world means, Why the hell am I gonna pay all this money for this crap…..

See really you can use a quote in everyday life……and just add them into everyday conversation and most people won’t even know the y came from movies

 

Until Next Time,

Kick The Bucket

Writing

Writing Prompt: What are the top items on your anti-bucket list — those things you never, ever want to do, places you never want to visit, books you never want to read, etc.?

Top 5 things on my anti-bucket list:

  1. Never read “Fifty Shades of Grey” again – seriously people despite all the hype surrounding the book (and the movie); but this was a really difficult book to read, not because o the subject matter, but because this book was so poorly written, I couldn’t get into it, because I keep finding errors then I started editing the book as I was reading, and I couldn’t stand Anna, I found her so damn annoying , and found myself screaming at my book asking why she was so spineless, I read for enjoyment not to raise my blood pressure, I read these books once and they chucked them in the trash… mommy porn my ass.
  2. I never want to see the movie Vacancy again. I love a good scare, but this movie fucked with me in ways I can’t even verbalize. months after I watched the move (and I didn’t watch it all) I was still thinking of it
  3. I never want to visit St. Rose Dominican hospital again. It’s a wonderful facility but honestly stepping back in that place would cause a panic attack of epic proportions. After spending 6 weeks there, 2 comas, and multiple medical emergencies, I think it’s understandable why I don’t want to enter that place.
  4. Not speaking to my mother was the pits… and I never want to do that again., once was enough, I think it lasted for over a month… the reasons why aren’t important (and they honestly weren’t important then either) but we’re bot h alike in the fact that we are both stubborn and want have out say, so we tend to butt heads often.. we just know how to deal with it better. But #3 was the reason we started speaking again. I was started to get sick and was scared and after a visit to quick care and the doctor told me that I needed to go to the ER right away I called her and told her that I needed her.
  5. There is enough crap in the world making people feel like they are worth-less and not good enough. We see it everyday from what we watch on TV, do our “friends”, we even do it to ourselves, I never want to be one of those people that makes someone else feel that way. We deal with enough stuff on a daily basis, do we really need to deal with that too?

 

Until Next Time….
