Bloggin' about Movies...

When John was a the library last week he saw a DVD of a movie we haven't seen in ages...and love! Being a DVD it had special features and interviews and games that you never get on old VHS copies. So we watched it Sunday night with the boys. I love love love this movie and didn't realize how much of it I have memorized. I kept saying lines before and with the actors and John kept saying: Would ya quit? I'm trying to enjoy the movie too! I couldn't stop! I'm not going to tell you the movie...just some quotes. Can you guess the movie??

"You mocked me once, never do it again! I DIED that day!"

"Stop rhyming I mean it! ...anybody want a peanut?" (do you know it yet?)

"Marewij is what bwings us togevwa today"

"Wuv....Tawoooo Wuuuv..."

"My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!"

"Boo. Booooooo Buttercup! Bow down to the queen of putrescence!"

"As You Wish"

"Inconceiveable!" (you have to know it now!)

Here are some of the characters, in case you lived in a cave for the last 20 years! (Yes, it came out in 1988)

Buttercup, Westley, Inigo, Fezzick, Prince Humperdink, The 6-Fingered Man

Come on, you have to know it now!!! Do you have some favorite quotes from the movie?

Okay, the game is over. I'm going to upload the picture. The cover has an awesome ambigram on the front where you can read the title upside down. It's really cool!

If you see this 20th Anniversary in the store, let me know! I have to have it!

Did you just turn you head over so you could read it? I did and popped my neck just now...it actually felt kind of good...that little stretch...now the other way...

93 out of 204

More Twilight Chatter

I didn't know they were this far in filming the movie, but if they are opening in December of 2008, they'd better get on it, I guess!

I don't know what I've done, but I can't upload videos anymore...I suck! Here's the link. There are a few trailers on youtube claiming to be "trailers" for the movie but it looks like something some one put together because several have pictures of Edward as Cedric Diggory in The Goblet of Fire. Here's the trailer that I liked best. Enjoy!

Most of you that actually visit my blog probably have never seen me with my "Sassy" hair...so here I am!

Yikes...could I grit my teeth any harder? I was just so excited to take a picture of myself and share my hair!

What's your Superhero Name?

I should be cleaning my house, but everyone knows I would rather blog hop 'n stalk.

Okay, here's another tag. At first I thought these were hokie, but I'm starting to enjoy them. Someone, if they cared enough, could probably figure out and determine who you are and steal your identity and that's already been done to me so here it goes:

1. My rock star name (first pet and current car):
Shadow Sonata

2. My gangsta name (favorite ice cream flavor and favorite cookie):
PB Choco Chip

3. My "fly" name (first initial of first name and first three letters of last name:
T Bea said with "Attitude"

4. My detective name (favorite color and favorite animal):
Purple Pig

5. My soap opera name (middle name and city where you were born):
Renee Bitburg

6. My Star Wars name (first three letters of your last name and first two letters of your first

7. My superhero name (2nd favorite color and favorite drink with "The" in front):
The Green Limeade

8. My Nascar name (first names of your grandfathers):
Charlie John

9. My stripper name (name of your favorite perfume/cologne and your favorite candy):
Romance Skittles or Sexual Chocolate (Okay, I don't really wear Sexual, it just sounded good with chocolate!)

10. My witness-protection name (mother's and father's middle names):

Renee Ray

Cast of Twilight

I had to copy this from my SIL's sister's blog. I'm a lover of the Twilight Series too. I am undecided as to whether I am excited for the movie or not. Pictures of the cast members are on a video posted on YouTube.com so I don't know how legit it is but here's the link. Twilight Cast
I don't want the movie to change my opinion of the book. I hate the fact that I can't go back to the characters I had come up with in my own mind for the Harry Potter series before the movies. If you are the same way, maybe you better not look at the link...but they are such beautiful people!

I'd go ahead and post the video but it doesn't seem to work for me. Have any of you been able to upload a video to your blog lately?

The Beach Zoo

My friend, Stephanie's blog is called the Morgan Zoo. A zoo is what it has been around our house lately. Let me share the different animal sitings at our house lately.

I took Buddy to get groomed on Wednesday. I didn't recognize him when they brought him out! He was really cute and more gray with all that shag shaved off! I went crazy with some new outfits for him too!

You all know Brillo and Buddy...I was trying to take a nap on my swing and the dogs thought it looked pretty comfy on my swing too!

For the last couple of days this gorgeous orange cat has been tormenting Brillo! None of the neighbors know where she came from, but she is definitely well fed. I picked her up and she is chunky under all that hair. She struts down the sidewalk and the barking from inside the house starts. Then, with all the "gall" of this cat she prances right up to the porch and sits in front of the door. Brillo is going berzerk and clawing at the glass door to get THAT cat. (Buddy feels that is free time to bark too, so he joins in on the fun) The cat just looks at Brillo like he's an idiot.

On Saturday we were outside working on the fence and gate. All the sudden Brillo & Buddy went tearing past John and I....the cat was back. She just stood her ground against Brillo. Brillo barked and barked. Buddy was a little freaked out and left the confrontation. Brillo kept barking and barking at the cat. She meowed that low menacing meow and just looked at him, like "Bring it on Big Boy!" Brillo would stop so the cat took matters into her own paw and charged Brillo and swatted at him.
Brillo wouldn't let me grab him so I picked up the cat and walked back to our house and Brillo followed me. I had to put him back in the house 8 times! He kept getting out and it was driving me INSANE!!! Brillo wanted at that cat so bad he taught himself how to open the kitchen screen door! That was promptly fixed! Thank you John!

Also while we were working on the fence, the horse came over to investigate. She loves visitors. Killian is not our horse but she lives on the property behind us. It's cool having a horse in your backyard and not having to pay for the feed!
So two dogs, one cat and a horse...that's a lot for the Beach House!

Doggy Visit

Ashley loves to come see Brillo. She often asks to just come over and see him, and that's what she likes to do..."See" him not really play with him. Aaron, her little brother enjoys Brillo too. He gets down on the floor and wants to see him too, but when Brillo comes near to investigate, Aaron freaks out a little. Well, Aaron has definitely gotten over his fears! Aaron was practically attacking Brillo, but Brillo loves it and knows that any visitor is here to see and love on him!

Ashley & Aaron brought their cousin, Valerie over with them. She totally freaked out screaming that 4 yr old scream, you know the one, the ear-piercing scream? John and Steve sat down with them all and taught them how to act around Brillo. You see, when you run from Brillo he thinks you want to play and he will chase you. If you sit down, Brillo thinks you want to rub his belly.


Burns hurt! I hate 'em! I was helping out at work, trying to steam a pleat in a wedding gown and look what I did! If I'm ever in a fire I will be breathing deeply for find some other way to kill myself before the fire gets to me. I seem to burn myself a lot. My other injuries include my knees...stitches...3 separate times.

How do you hurt yourself or am I the only klutz?

Love of a Lifetime

I just read a post by my friend Angie about her & Willy's "SONG". What a great idea! I want you to know mine and John's sappy little love song! It kind of started out as a joke...."I FINALLY found the love of a life time" This was funny because John & I were engaged only 3 months to the day we met and married 3 months, to the day, after that. The other reason is because John was SO old when he did finally find his love of a life time! Aaaaahhhh *SIGH*

I can't get the video loaded for the life of me....any suggestions? What am I doing wrong? I've done a video before!! whine whine Help! Click on the video button, copy my site from you tube and press upload, right? What am I doing wrong???? Help!

Pet Peeves

Most people know what a stickler I am about spelling. I'm a secretary through and through and I love to make "things" look good and correct! So if you ever see me spell something wrong, I might question you on it, but let me know, please!

My #1 Pet Peeve is spell my name RIGHT!!


Every other way just looks plain stupid...like you are trying to add enough letters to "look" smart or some kind of phonetic spelling.

Tash rhymes with Wash, how easy can you make it?
This is my most hated spelling TOSHA sick! What's the deal with the "O". If you want me to stop talking to you...spell my name with an O!...Now I might question that and think you are just trying to get "a rise" out of me. Believe me, it will!

This is the most creative I've seen someone use for my name...it was actually printed in the ward directory when we built our house in WVC (oh, there's the reason)
TAUSCIA - What the crap?
Even more hysterical is that they didn't list John and because we were just building the house we didn't have a house number or phone number yet...what was the point?

So here you go...test your spelling for me, but don't worry, I'll still love you and be your friend, I just might correct your spelling sometime!

Your Spelling is Perfect

You got 10/10 correct.

Your spelling is excellent. You also have a great memory and eye for detail.

I'm Golden!

My how I've changed...

You Are A Gold Girl

You're dependable and hard working. You never miss a deadline - and you're never late.

You have a clear sense of right and wrong. You're very detail oriented.

You get frustrated when your friends are sloppy - or when they don't follow through.

You're on top of things, and you wish that everyone else was!

April Fool's Day Dinner

I made dessert for April Fools Day dinner.
Meatloaf Cake - I made my meatloaf mixture and baked it in 2 cake pans, squirted on the raspberry filling (ketchup) and frosted it with whipped vanilla icing (mashed potatoes).
I also made a Chocolate Carmel Sauce to pour over it, if anyone wanted it. (Beef Gravy)
I also served Orange Kool-Aid for the drink (orange Jell-o, put in fridge with the straws so they harden in the Jell-o)
We also had orange sticks (cooked carrots...that was the best I could come up with)
The boys absolutely LOVED it! What a hit!
My sister served the same Cake but made it in a Bundt Cake Pan. She went all out and colored some the potatoes pink & some green and using a cake decorating tube fashioned some lovely pink roses complete with leaves! She also had Sushi (rice crispy treats)
For APD 2009 ideas or for any old time Google April Fool's Day recipes or try this link. I can't wait to try the "Cheerios!"

It's a BOY!!!

This is NOT an April Fool's joke.

John and I definitely thought we were done, but it happened... and once it happens how can you go back?

We didn't want to tell anyone until we were sure.

We've actually thought about it for a while. We didn't tell the boys at first because we didn't want to get them too excited.

He is very needy and loves to be held.

We thought he would be hairless, but he has hair...and we've named him Buddy!

Buddy is a Chinese Crested Powder Puff. Chinese Crested dogs are the ones without hair. He has siblings that are hairless, but luckily for us, he is a cute little powder puff.

He reminds me of our childhood dog, Roxy. She was just walking down the street and stopped at our house and never left. She was all blonde. Buddy also reminds me of an inlarged Yorkie. When he was born he had the same coloring as a Rottweiler so his owners named him Rottie. We've changed it to Buddy... Buddy & Brillo. Isn't that cute?

Brillo doesn't seem too concerned about him. We've all been extra nice and paid a little more attention to Brillo so that his feelings don't get hurt. Brillo is a great big brother and I'm sure he'll whip Buddy right into shape and show him the ropes. Brillo has really helped out with the house training aspect. When Brillo pees on something outside, Buddy has to go and investigate and pee there too!

My friend, Angie, is pregnant with her 4th, and 1st girl! She posted pictures of the cute little baby girl clothes. I thought I would post some of Buddy's first clothes.

Come on! Gimme a break! He needs to be dressed! He's a hairless breed...he could freeze to death! Plus, he likes it! He feels pretty! Brillo has never been a fan. I'm sure he looks at Buddy and just thinks, "What a pansy!" (hee hee) I do that alot now...making up Brillo/Buddy conversations.

How Many Are There of YOU??
