Happy Birthday To Me

Ok so this is a milestone for me; my 1 year anniversary. I've spend hours, days and even months trying to figure out how I could commemorate this occasion. In the end the idea just kind of hit me out of the blue. I wish I could say it was my intellect and imagination that inspired me but alas no, it was in fact a movie.

So with out further ado I present to you my thoughts on the magic that is movie moments. Now your probably sat there reading this thinking what is she babbling on about and what the heck is so special about movie moments.

Let me explain...

To me movie moments are those time where you find yourself doing something that just makes you smile. Its those instants that mimic those from cheesy 80's movies with that corny inspirational music in the background.

For me it can be something as simple as being sat on the deck reading a good book with the sun shining down. That's really all it takes because in that moment I can be blissfully happy. Everyone is different but no matter what it is that make that tell tale smile grace your lips you should embrace it. Grab hold of everyone of these moments and bask in them because it really is these moments that make life worth living.

They fucked with Pams face! Are you freaking kidding me. I know I'm not the only person who was screaming at her TV screen last night. Why would you mess with perfection. I know this is a great opportunity for Kristin Bauer to prove what a fantastic actress she is. Although most of us already know how fabulous she is but really did you have to mess with the face. Now am I going to get through the week. I must admit even though I hate what they've done to her I am looking forward to seeing how ruthless Pam will get, you know its going to happen. No chance the witches will get away with this she'll rip them apart.

Here's a photo to remind us what Pam is like in all her glory and hopefully will be restored to soon.

My Leading Lady

Phoebe Halliwell/Alyssa Milano

From the very first episode I loved Phoebe. Her rebellious nature and honest heart makes for a truely fascinating woman. She started out as a young girl who tended to shy away from responsibility but she grew into a mature and successful woman. As I watched her journey progress my affection for her grew, she had to deal with so much; from her evil husband and his demonic spawn to her lost loves and family. Yet she dealt with it all and moved on with her life, she refused to let it hold her back and showed her true strength. One of the things that first drew me to her was her willingness to embrace magic, unlike her sisters she was exciting by their transition into witchcraft. After all she was destined for something special.

My Weekly Addiction


For a long time Charmed had been a dominant feature on my list of favourites. It got everything a girl could want in a show. Girls power, sisterhood, action, power, and of course a personal interest of mine; magic. Watching these sister witches battle evil week after week really has made me happy. That may sound silly but its true. A truly good show leaves you smiling regardless of the context. Another great aspect of the show is that you cant help but love each of the main characters. I of course adore Phoebe and Piper and I was gutted when Prue died because I really liked her but then Paige came along and I came to love her too. for a show to replace a beloved character with yet another wonderful one successfully is amazing. Perhaps one of the best things about this show is its ending. Now that may seem strange but when a show has to end you always hope it does it well. Unfortuanty this is rarely the case. In fact I think Charmed may be the only show where I've actually liked the ending. For them to tie up all the lose ends and give you a glimpse into the future of the character was the perfect ending to a wonderful show.

My Leading Lady

Shirley Schmidt/Candice Bergen

What can I say about Shirley Schmidt. Well she brilliant. She fought her way up that greasy pole and punched her way through that glass ceiling and she did it with her integrity in tact. Shes been kidnapped, had a knife held to her throat, put up with Denny Crane and survived it all. Now that’s impressive.

My Weekly Addiction

Boston Legal

I love this show. that’s all there is to it. From the very first episode I fell in love with this show. I was instantly drawn in by the fast talk and wit that these lawyers just ooze. They manage to fight against these big bads of the world and they do it with such a flair you can’t help but love them. Each one is quirky in their own way but damn are they loyal to one another. Their a family, if you take on one you take on them all. What’s wonderful about this show is that it makes you laugh, but while your laughing your also think about these issues that are integrated deep into the society we live in. It takes a truly great show to do that. The writers are geniuses, its as simple as that.

My Leading Lady

Buffy Summers/Sarah Michelle Geller

I couldn’t really choose anyone else now could I. Don’t get me wrong I love pretty much everyone in this show. Willow, Faith, Tara. I really wanted to pick Willow. She’s cute + a witch + gay = AWESOME. But Buffy is… well she’s Buffy. She kicks ass on a daily basis and does it while battling her way through her complicate social and romantic life. She’s young, hot and can wield sarcasm almost as well as she can a wooden stake. She may looks fragile but you really wouldn’t want to mess with her.

My Weekly Addiction

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

I’ve mention my love of all things vampire a couple of times before I believe. Of course I consider my self a true vampire fan not a twilight junkie. Don’t get me wrong I like twilight but a I was a fan of the fang long before glittering vampires entered the scene. One of my first flings with the vampires was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I personally think it’s a pretty good place to start. Admittedly the show revolves around killing the vampires because there the bad guys which is a tad different to what I normally go for but it still kicks ass. Besides it has Angel and Spike who are basically good guys, even if there are a few bumps along the road. We get to see a group of teenage friends band together to fight all thing evil. I can’t tell you the number of times my mind wandered during class to how much more interesting it would be to fight vampires than to sit through long division. The show managed to blend the humorous and romantic with the dark and twisty. The balance between the two opposite made for a great viewing opportunity. I also feel the musical episode deserves a special mention. It was utterly ridiculous in and stupendously fantastic way. It may have been a bit odd but damn once those songs are in your head they fight like hell to stay there.

I’ve got a theory…
…it could be bunnies…

My Leading Lady

Henrietta 'Hetty' Lange/Linda Hunt

Ok its impossible not to love this woman. Hetty kicks some serious ass. She might be small but I wouldn't want to mess with her. Its so fun to watch this tiny woman ordering about these big burly men with such ease. But what's really great is that you can see how much the entire team respects and looks up to her. That is what makes a truly great leader.
