We had a nice day out yesterday, went to the multi-complex
cinema and saw 'American Hustle'. Absolutely fabulous
movie.
The acting was superb and a good storyline told. True in
part apparently. Loved those characters.

The actor who played Richie was Christian Bale, he had a
very convincing Bronx accent. So I looked up where he came
from and nearly died....he is Welsh of English parents!....:)

After the movie, in the Ladies, I asked two rather elderly nicely
dressed refined ladies had they enjoyed the film. The taller
smiled sweetly and apologetically said 'I don't like bad language,
it completely spoilt the film for me'.!!!!

To my own disgust I found myself saying 'it was completely unecessary,
why do they feel it necessary to insert such language in what otherwise
be an excellent movie'...blah blah blah.

But in truth, I wonder how on Earth anybody could be so blindsided as
to not look through the profanities (I barely noticed them myself)
and accept the movie for what it was, excellent acting and a damn good plot.

Hate myself for not speaking my mind..........

you were being accommodating, picking your battles, perhaps in a different time and place

I agree with LIM's point,
certainly NO need to hate yourself,
It's called diplomacy:) and you are very good at that El,
Kudos,
Reminds of recently, a neighbour who is unusually heavy, called to
My house to see pics of the new baby,
I was delighted to see her, she is very easy company,
But WHAT do you think I said before I realised
(Hands to face)!

I said,
'How lovely to see you,
Won't you come and 'take the weight off'
without finishing the sentenceLOL
now, but not then!

I saw it immediately but kept going and so did she and
Thankfully the remark soon got buried in other
Conversation.

Spose we are all human!

El,
So glad you liked the Priest singing,
True he could make a living out of it...
Pew must try to push him towards XFactor:) j/k

me have flown out the window.

Morning DW,
Not being flippant but can't help
thinking
Bob Geldof will never again have to ask the question>
'Tell Me Why I Don't Like Mondays'
Same as it ever was, same as it ever was ---

----------
Gedolf already knew the answer:

According to Geldof, he wrote the song after reading a telex report at Georgia State University's campus radio station, WRAS, on the shooting spree of 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer, who fired at children in a school playground at Grover Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, California on 29 January 1979, killing two adults and injuring eight children and one police officer. Spencer showed no remorse for her crime and her full explanation for her actions was "I don't like Mondays. This livens up the day".[2] The song was first performed less than a month later. Geldof explained how he wrote the song:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Don 't_Like_Mondays

Now you know.

In early or mid-'70s in southern Indiana, a high school student with a grudge against the school principal came with a rifle one day [he may have routinely brought it since it's a rural community, and at the time it was no big deal to have hunting rifles and shotguns in your vehicles in the parking lot anyway -- this was before the [American] National Rifle Association became politicized and the gun manufacturers mass-producing weapons of mass destruction for general public consumption] and shot the principal dead. Dead.

So, this week in America a kid brings 2 knives to a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania high school resulting in three or 4 seriously hurt and 16 with less serious wounds. If he brought 2 guns ... Sandy Hook or Virginia Tech University redux-fold.

"Gerry and the Pacemakers; and Ferry Across the Mersey [sing it El !]"
I'll pass on the invitation thanks Cuz Luke, lol
but it leads me to the amusing story I was about to tell y'all yesterday.
Right. Sunday. Big match between Liverpool F.C and West Ham.
Big big match as Liverpool are in line for the cup.
Well, we had company one of whom was a lady. Still is actually, lol.
Her husband was rooting for West Ham, which didn't go down too well
with we two, his wife was not a football fan at all.
She was however, a fan of Gerry and The Pacemakers back in the day, and
it just so happens that Liverpool Football Club's 'anthem' is 'You'll Never
Walk Alone".
So we settle down to watch the match, all contented after Sunday lunch,
and on comes the match.
To my surprise this lady sings along with the crowd...and not quietly either.
Fair enough, we all like a bit of enthusiasm, but throughout the game she never
shut up singing......(:
And as you know, we take our footie seriously in this house, lol
West Ham's 'anthem' is I'm Forever Blowin' Bubbles' the ground is covered
in bubbles before the game, and me, hoping that Liverpool would win,
which they did, lowered myself to sing West Ham's signature tune. haha
But it was a fun day and the bottom line is Liverpool won...:)
People like her ruin good movies too.

'pretty bubbles in the air'... hasn't been that long ago on the color TV, I remember watching a run-up to a British league match ... W. Ham was on one side, and there were bubbles, bubbles, bubbles everywhere.

You're close. The Monkees did have a song with a similar melody. And to evoke a pull from a Brit or two here, they had one titled "Randy Scouse Git".

You're wecome, dear :)

And ... physical therapy. It's a good thing in the long haul. But, please watch the physical work for excess though. ya know?!@

Did you see the royal couple dancing? That was pretty cool.
I expect you are right about two Heirs requiring permission to travel together,
it would be protocol no doubt.
I must say I do think Kate is very much like Diana in her 'handling' of meeting
the public. She seems genuine enough.
Hope this finds you and yours, bearing the Mom-in-waiting, keeping in the best
of health.
Prynhawn in the morning, Prynhawn in the evening, Prynhawn at supper-time ...

I did not see the dancing; however, I did see little Georgie's first international play date. And seeing Kate being mum like the other mums there, and talking mum-talk. I agree with your observation vis-a-vis Diane, Kate's mum-in-law.

Thank you {{{ Cuz El }}}. From recent input, she's well. Dr. appointment looms. Saturday of Easter weekend is a gender-reveal gathering/party for family ! True! lol

"I'm Feeling Glad All Over" Part 1 -- in mid-week was the prevalent mood while enjoying this show on the color TV.

I'd forgotten how 'big' these guys were in the U.S. and not too much behind The Beatles in favor here. And then The Rolling Stones kind of edged them down a bit.

Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooo One and all. I am at the library. The only thread you will see me visit is this one until I get my computer fixed. Then I can play all I want. Matt has to rebuild the whole damn thing, the mother board went. Will do some readong to see if anything interesting was posted here (there is always interest here)
Good afternoon Vee. Wishing an expeditious repair there. Years and years ago before getting a PC "I've been there" [at the library].

"I'm Feeling Glad All Over" Part 2.

Also mid-week, did one of the patriotic actions a citizen should do ... prepared and mailed my income tax forms to claim my rebates at federal and state levels.

Good afternoon/evening Kitchen-eers.

I get into heated discussions about race regularly when I hear some outrageous comments, some days I got no fight left in me and make a comment like "as long as it is just one they won't bread, RIGHT?" and walk away

Has it been peaceful since that episode?
no peace with feds involved

here is part of the problem
