I Got a Fever and Ant Video

Ok, so I KNOW you all think I am crazy so in order not to disappoint any of you, I have attached a little video so you can see the gals at work! My sister says my nephew enjoys looking at the ant pics so Camden-buddy, this is for you:

Aren't they the neatest things? They just keep working and doing their job (whatever that is!) Sadly, since we do not feed them (since the gel is their food and water) I don't think they really know what to do with themselves. Maybe we will do a "dirt" ant farm in the future...hey what can I say, these are the first animals that are literally NO MAINTENANCE!

This has been a pretty busy week at work so by the time I get home, after a 10 hour day I have been looking forward to a nice dinner and cuddle time with DH and movie. I have been enjoying the plethora of choices from Netflix and here are some recommendations (or not):

The Women -OK, while DH always wonders what he has done to deserve a chick flick, I must say I was wondering the same thing with this one!) It had some funny moments but the story didn't hold me and I spent my time just staring at Meg Ryan's bad plastic surgery. Thumbs down.

Rambo - Did you know Sylvester Stallone is in his mid 60's? You wouldn't know by watching him go in this one. Very bloody but the subject matter (burma) is too. I will say that I was riveted by this one which I think by far is the best one since the original. DH & I gave it a thumbs up. My favorite is watching the special features and the making of...very sad state the world is in!

Henry Poole is Here - I'm not sure why I put this on my queue but this was a very sweet story about a man who has been told he doesn't have long and how while he tries to give up the people around him and life just don't let it happen. Touching and Spiritual and not too sappy...again both DH and I gave it a thumbs up. Note while the plot line says he leaves a fiance, she apparently hit the cutting room floor lol!

We have a couple to watch this weekend: A Man Apart (Vin Diesel as a DEA agent) and Apaloosa (western with Jeremy Irons and Viggo Mortenson) so DH will be happy as they are not chicky in the least LOL!

Finally, just want to share my latest file. I just sent it to the store for uploading so it should be there soon. It was inspired by the SNL skit with one of my favorite actors Christopher Walken....where he played a record producer working with Blue Oyster Cult....you know the one...where he has a fever...a fever whose only prescription is: MORE COWBELL!!! If you haven't seen it, here is a link...makes me laugh every time!

You have to understand, I grew up with a brother who could basically play any instrument he picked up and a sister who was great on the flute...me...well while my dream was to play drums, that dream was quickly squashed! Inside of me however is a pecussionist just waiting to come out...I keep joking that the cowbell is the perfect instrument....imagine going to a school band recital and listening to an orchestra a cowbells instead of violins...woo hoo I'm there LOL!

Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend...have a couple more files to finish up.

Take care!
