Grindhouse; Double Feature.

I can't even explain how much I love this movie.
It's so campy, and amazing.
I remember being SO excited when I first heard about the double feature movie coming out years ago.

Planet Terror and Death Proof

I saw it opening night, and it was fantastic. All of the little commercials, and ad's the directors made themselves to enhance the feeling of a 70's drive in movie style double feature.

I also tried really hard to think about how to be Cherry Darling, with the machine gun leg for Halloween! Attaching two toy guns to the side of my leg didn't quite give off the same effect in my mind haha.

Anyway; while I was crafting last night I watched it on TV; and it made me pull out some wicked pictures and listen to the Soundtracks today. I LOVE it.

Planet Terror
"I'm gonna eat your brains, and gain your knowledge"

"These are my friends.
My Yellow friend is to take the sting off.
My blue friend you'll barely feel.
That means my yellow friend is already taking effect.
See how fast my friends work?
And after my red-headed friend, you'll never see me again"

Death Proof

"Cheers, Butterfly.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep. And I have promises to keep. Miles to go before I sleep. Did you hear me, Butterfly? Miles to go, before you sleep."

To Do List and Random Music!

This week I plan on actually finishing a BUNCH
of things from my ever expanding to do list.

I swear on this little lady bug that I found at the zoo!

I got SO busy and totally forgot the Journaling for a Cause class started on the 26th; so I'm going to catch up tomorrow.
Super fun Give Away almost together, just have to take pictures.
Change my flight home from Nfld to the 20th instead.
Job interview for Telus Mobility tomorrow @ 10:30!
Swimming with baby Paige on Thursday.
Find a bathing suit for the above adventure haha.
Upload songs to my Ipod for the trip.
Make a wrestling belt for a Taco eating contest!
(I'll do a post about this later haha.)
Make a cute custom plush camera for a super cute Red Head!
List a pile of vintage goodies to my etsy shop.
Paint MORE!
Perfected my Noni's salad dressing style; eat it every day when I need a snack instead of going for the junk!

Here is a really random playlist of songs I have
been listening to today.
Some of them are completely silly; but I love them all the same.

Mustache Bandanas!

So since I'm going to Newfoundland in a few weeks,
I made a fun little addition to bring along.
For the group of us I have made some new

A group of my friends already have some solid color ones from my birthday a few years ago. So these are all about lines!

An Almost Friday Funny!

Being Blonde again is tough work!

My roots were only my natural dirty blonde, but they were looking pretty rough!
I wonder what sort of channels I can get with this current do?

What I have been up to....

SO! I'm going to around again much more offten.
