Top Ten Tuesday

As it's Thanksgiving in the US on Thursday, I thought I'd make today's Top Ten list all about the big meal with my favourite thanksgiving offerings.

Top Ten Favourite Thanksginging Foods

10. Layer salad - though I pick out the olives and tomatoes
9. Mashed potatoes - with gravy - don't forget the gravy because they aren't the same without
8. Cranberry bread - the best Thanksgiving breakfast ever
7. Cheese ball - with Nuthins crackers, please
6. Pumpkin pie - homemade, please, and always with whip cream.
5. Brussel Sprouts - preferably fried with bacon.
4. Rolls - and BA makes an amazing GF roll for Thanksgiving.
3. Pecan pie - anyone who knows me would not be suprised that there's lots of dessert on this list.
2. Cranberry Salad - I make this for every holiday meal after first having it at BA's one Thanksgiving.
1. Deviled eggs. I like these sooo much. I don't know why I don't make them for myself more often, but rarely do I eat them outside of Thanksgiving.

Yes, that's right - there's no turkey on my top ten list. I'm not actually that fond of turkey, though I do like turkey sandwiches the day after Thanksgiving.

So what's your favorite Thanksgiving foods?

Movie Monday

Yesterday I went to see Thor: Ragnarok!

I don't usually see movies their first weekend out, but with the 3D IMAX or Ultra AVX theaters you reserve your seating, so you don't have to worry about showing up super early to buy a ticket and then line up so you get a good seat. And I bought the tickets the night before. So I was sitting near the back in the middle of the row, which is my preference.

Some movies just benefit from 3D and I think this was one of them.

Spoilers will follow, so please stop reading if you don't want them.

So I loved the movie! Out of the Marvel movies, Thor has always been my favorite and this one is my favorite of those.

The movie is slick, the CGI is wonderful and seamless. I totally forgot that the Hulk was not a real person acting next to everyone else!

I don't read reviews or watch the previews on movies that I know I want to go watch, so I had no idea that hulk is not only in this one, but he has a major role. He was great, as was Banner.

I loved the cameo by Dr. Strange. I loved how it kept him in the universe and showed how adept he has become with his powers and that he's doing his job as guardian of earth.

I loved the Thor and Loki parts. They play so well off each other. And I do love that Loki is unabashedly out for himself. If his agenda meets Thor's, then he's more than happy to help, but only so far as it benefits him. I also love that Thor is beginning to understand that and work with it.

Valkyrie - yay!

The God of Death - yay! Kate Blanchette always plays the grand characters, doesn't she? A super kickass female. And while she was the villain in the piece she was merely being who she was made to be!

Loved the interactions between Thor and Hulk - all of them. And I loved the Valkyrie and hulk together.

Idris Elba - that man is yummy.

Speaking of yummy - omg the scene with Thor with his shit/armour off... It's simply unfair to men everywhere that he looks so damn good. And they stayed with it a good long while. Thank you to director Taika Waititi for that lingering, circulating around Thor shot.

The revolutionary rock dude who's revolution failed because he didn't print enough pamphlets! "We're escaping on this big ship here, would you care to join us?"

I just loved everything about it. Did I mention the music? The music was awesome. The opening was awesome.

I want to see it again.

Halloweenpalooza - Day 11

A little Halloween snippet from Rock, Rig, and Dick, my Jarheads.

Dick tossed a couple boxes of mini-chocolate bars into the cart. Halloween wasn't for a few more weeks, but they were on sale and he figured if they bought them now, they wouldn't have to worry about it closer to the day. If you waited too long, all that was left were those horrible dark toffee candies that could pull your teeth out. Or the craptastic little lollipops that tasted like ass. He'd hated getting those kinds of candies as a kid and liked to hand out the good stuff now that he was on the other side of the door.

Without a word, Rig grabbed the chocolates and put them back on the shelf.

"What? Are we not handing out candy this year?"

Rig nodded. "Of course we are."

"Then what's with rejecting my choice?"

"I'm not rejecting your choice, Pretty. I'm rejecting your timing."

"What's that supposed to mean?"

"If you buy these now, there won't be any left - Rock'll have them finished well before Halloween."

"We could just hide them," Dick noted.

"Nope. He goes looking for them. And he's always found them."

"We could get him some full size bars to keep him away from the Halloween ones," Dick suggested.

"Nope. He doesn't want those. He wants the little Halloween ones. You're going to have to wait to buy our stuff to hand out."

"What's stopping him from buying his own?"

Rig shrugged. "He doesn't. It seems he only likes them if someone else buys them."

"That's..." Dick laughed. "That's our Rock."

"You know it."

Three Day Passes was my first published book!

What happens when an ammunitions expert brings a baby green marine home for his own personal redneck? Sex. Lots and lots of sex. Three Day Passes explores the beginning of the relationship between Sergeant James “Rock” South, Private Richard “Dick” Main and Alex ''Rigger'' Roberts.

Rock and Rig have been together a while now, and while teaching he newbies how things work has been something they’ve done together before, there’s something special about this one. Rock, Rigger and Dick spend their time and energy on the important things -- good beer, good sex, good friends and the occasional game of Truth of Dare, while dealing with the mundane (and not so mundane) complications of living the military life as they discover that love has no boundaries in this Sean Michael Classic.

Available at Amazon.

Halloweenpalooza - Day 10 - Top Ten Tuesday and Contest

While I don't watch a whole lot of horror movies - because they are scary and leave me feeling unsettled (if they are done right) - I do still watch them. I am more freaked out by the spooky, eerie and psychological boos than I am gory stuff.

Tell me about your favorite horror movie in the comments for a chance to win an ebook copy of any of my paranormal stories.

Without further ado, here are my top ten horror movies:

10 - Aliens - I saw this one because it was sci-fi, but the boo factor had me on edge!
9 - Misery - How can any writer not be freaked out by a book where a fan hobbles the writer and demands he write her more? 
8 - Signs - I admit, I like M Night Shayamalan movies
7 - The Evil Dead - I found this one amusing
6 - Shaun of the Dead - combining humour with horror is one way to get me to enjoy a horror movie and this one totally does that.
5 - I, Frankenstein - another modern retelling of an old story that I really enjoyed
4 - Dracula Untold - I really liked this retelling of the Dracula story
3 - The Sixth Sense - I still remember how cool it was once I figured out the twist
2 - The Omen - I even liked the TV show that came out last year based on a grown up Damien
1 - Seven - this one freaked me out so badly, I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go to the en suite bathroom on my own!

Halloweenpalooza - Day 9 - Movie Monday (on a Tuesday)

I thought pirates would fit the Halloween theme, and I watched Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales over the weekend, so tada - Movie Monday, but on a Tuesday as I play Halloweenpalooza catch-up.

I loved the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. A lot. A whole lot. Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow is brilliant in that movie. And a young Orlando Bloom, a kick-ass Kiera Knightly - it was a whole lot of fun.

I was disappointed in the second one, liked the third one better, and was also less happy with the fourth. I was actually surprised that they made a fifth one. I did like this one better than 2 and 4. So, unlike the original Star Wars movies where the even numbered movies are far better, with Pirates it seems that the odd numbered movies are where it's at.

I have to say that with this last one, the special effects regarding the ghost ship and ghost pirates were amazing. The way you could see right through them to what was beyond was very cool.

And I hadn't read much about this one, so I didn't know that Orlando Bloom was back, so that was a great surprise.

It did make me want to go back and watch the first one again, so I'm going to have to go do that soon. And it did make me want to write another pirate story. Arrr.
