Written on the Wind

For the last several YEARS, Madame x has had plans underway for a MAJOR remodel of the humble abode. The year 2008 was the target date.

Postings on blogger would document the progress, step by delightful step....culminating
in the magnificence of the fait accompli....

can you hear the music swell into materialistic ecstasy.

But everyday, in everyway….. Charles Schwab sends us a greeting and it sez:

Turn off the music…I’m takin yer money and I’m sendin it back to the garden of eden

I found this picture Here

So for now, we remain Shabbily Chic

Wednesday Review...... edited

Madame x has been thinking about starting a Wednesday (movie)Review post.
Not necessarily posted on Wednesday....

Wednesday is the day R.G. (and her band of chicka...s ) comes to clean Madame x’s bathrooms and sometimes fireplace(s)*, can read all about that*
here.....written (btw) before Madame x became all hip and started referring to herself in the third.

Madame x and her spouse, the very handy and accomadating Mr. Mx, allows that he take time out from his very busy day so that he and Mx can go to the afternoon matinee.... at special old fogey prices. Thereby, getting out of the house (on the cheap) and out of R.G.'s way.

Some stimulating and thought provoking conversations have arisen from these movie treks so why not get blogger in on the deal.....Just so you know.... Wednesday Review....or "What the Hell.... was that?" will be the actual post title.

as that is almost ALWAYS the way Mr. Mx begins the discussion

So, stay tuned.

If you feel cheated about not getting a review in today's post.... here is one I did when I just was getting my feet wet in the blogging world... an abandoned blog. It started out as a post about Thanksgiving, then wandered into something akin to a movie review... or maybe not

Who's in.....Who's out

Madame x has one or two oscar observations:


Daniel Day Lewis - There will be blood

He is never going to be as beautiful as he was in this -------->


Cate Blanchett - Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Madame x thinks Cate should be given the oscar so she can put away the white face powder...... and we can let HRH... R.I.P.....KWIM

Angelia Jolie - A Mighty Heart

No nomination for this sad but true story----too bad, so much better than her Laura Croft deal.Psssst....didja hear the rumor...pregnant again....with twins

Hey wait a minute...
is that Judge Amy's brother?

Sean Penn - Into the Wild

First time directing.... Another sad but true story.

Looks like he didn't get a nod from Mrs. Penn... either

And those are the observations of Madame x re: a few oscar nominations.. Bye the bye....Madame x hasn't seen any of these movies, so she really doesn't know if 'Mighty Heart' is better than a movie about Pandora's box.

While you are waiting

First.....thanks for checking in on know who you are Em and Chellie and my friend with guilty secrets.... all is well and I will be stopping in with comments soon... You are good peeps So, until I actually get back to posting, I offer an inventory of my desk:

1. Mickey Mouse. He is trying to look inconspicuous in case 'the grandsons' are still around. One of which, has a habit of sucking on Mickey while watching videos. Mickey thinks Buzz or Woody should take a turn.

2. Madame x's favorite coffee cup (a gift) usually filled with Peet's Arabian Mocha-Java...... As we know, Starbucks is loathe to sell Peet's. My last year rez was to NEVER ever stand in line at Starbuck’s to pay $4.75 for a venti java chip Frappuccino.... ever again..... (and almost didn't).

3. Madame x's desktop computer...a faithful old friend suffering serious wear and tear. Twelve years of steady uninterrupted service and now almost out of ram and megahertz. It is too old to upgrade and has been partitioned twice. Madame x needs a new desktop....but some people cast askance at such nonsense. (see item 5)

4. A magnum of scissors...Madame x doesn't feel secure unless she is surrounded by a lot of scissors...There are more in the other room...for every pair of scissors, Mx has four writing and drawing implements. These are necessary staples in Mx’s life.....




Mrs. Dash's seasoning,

scissors, gel pen.....

5. The software program which tracks all Mx's *necessary staples. *Necessary is very subjective, as in 'peculiar to a particular individual'... IE: spouse of Mx, who is prone to qualify what is necessary (which is totally unnecessary).

6. Buzz and Woody and Jess and Prospector .....they are so cool! they drive a turquoise Cadillac car.

7. Last(ly).... THE LAPTOP.... such a bad boy.....crashed twice.... diagnosed with schlepping syndrome (as in schlepped all over creation) sometime without even a shut would like to have a brand new desktop for a brother or sister to play with and teach bad habits.
