No! I'm Not Dead

This is my first post in 11 days. The past two weeks have been busy. When I say busy, imagine running around your house with your hair on fire, while juggling lemons and having a viral infection. That's how busy these last 11 days have been. Let's go back to the beginning of the 11 days. Two week ago today, I went to work feeling ok. I woke up and my throat felt a little scratchy. Northern California has been experiencing crazy weather. It's extremely dry but everything is coming into bloom. I thought, ok it could just be allergies. As the day went on it started to feel like I was swallowing razor blades. I was sweating and hot (which I am NEVER). I get home at the end of the evening and lay down. The next day I woke up feeling so awful. So bad that I called into work for the first time ever. I've been at my new job for 9 months and I took my first sick day. Did I mention that I'm responsible for the Employee Recognition and Awards program? Well I am. I literally do the entire program. I get the nominations, make the programs, get the nominations scored, do the script... everything. Well the awards ceremony was in 48 hours.

So there I am laying in bed with a fever that won't break and water felt like it was going down like a razor blade. So I use my fancy insurance card and get in to see the doctor. Who did absolutely nothing for me except tell me to take ibuprofen and cough drops. Gee thanks Doc! So the next day goes by and I feel no better. I called in a second day in a row. On the third day, the day of the awards I knew I had to go in. I went in for 3 hours, set up and had to go home. I couldn't make it. It was bad. The weekend finally came and I still felt rough. Guess what weekend it was? The Britney Spears/ Mayweather fight weekend in Vegas.

After much debate we went ahead. Everything was booked. We had to go or we would just watch money go down the drain. An hour after we get into Vegas, Britney freaking cancels the concert. So we did the next best thing... we went to the Elvis Experience Show!
 
We also went the Elvis Experience which houses a lot of his personal artifacts. I was in hog heaven. Beezy even started to get into it!




We also went to the fight weigh in. We also saw a ton of celebrities...




 

While we were there we also hit up M&M World....

The entire trip, I couldn't breath out of my nose. I was freezing in the heat. I was also coughing up a storm. But I made it! We had a good time and I was back to work. Now we have been packing up a storm because we are in the last few days before moving. So wish us luck cause we have a LOT to pack!

Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is a movie that I knew the whole back story by watching the original television show. This featured movie is, Miami Vice.
 
Miami Vice follows two Miami-Dade police detectives who are partners. They are Sonny Crockett (Colin Farrell) and Rico Tubbs (Jamie Foxx). They have been partners for a while and when they get a frantic call from one of their former informants that a drug bust has gone terribly bad they know they have to respond. What they find is not what they expected. When they learn that the FBI is involved and their looking at multiple drug cartels, the detective duo wants to get involved and help.

Sonny and Rico go undercover by posing as experienced drug runners who are looking for a bigger score. When they get involved with kingpin Montoya, Sonny runs into something he didn't expect. He meets Montoya's financial advisor Isabella (Gong Li) and is immediately attracted to her. He knows that she works to distribute drugs but he's still attracted to her. Immediately they begin a love affair both knowing that they have no future. At the same time his partner Tubbs is beginning to wonder if Sonny has went in too deep this time undercover.

As their collaborative effort with the FBI gets more underway, the danger grows. Will Sonny and Rico get out alive or will one decide to change sides? If you've never seen this movie watch it. If you loved the old television show, then you'll definitely enjoy this new movie.

My Two Favs

Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and around here that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is a newer release. I wanted to originally see it in the theater but the reviews weren't so hot so I waited until it came out on dvd. This week's featured movie is.... Interstellar.
 
Interstellar stars Matthew McConaughey as Cooper a former military pilot and ex NASA astronaut. Due to failing crops humanity is struggling to survive. The only thing that keeps harvesting is corn and even that is drying up. The Earth is dying and it's going to take everyone with it. When Cooper and his daughter Murphy discover an odd piece of gravity in her room they go out on an adventure to see where it leads them. It reveals to be an underground, super secret government operation that is trying to find a place for humans to go out in the galaxy.

It's being ran by NASA and one of Cooper's former professors. They have been sending astronauts out into deep space to find a new planet that can used to hold humanity. Being persuaded to travel through the planets which could take multiple Earth years, he willing agrees to go with three other astronauts into deep space. They will set out for a wormhole off Jupiter. His co-pilot will be Amelia (Anne Hathaway), which is the professors daughter. They will keep each other company for years to come. If they do not find a place for humanity to go everyone on Earth will die. Will they be successful?

This movie is almost three hours long and is incredibly confusing so you really need to pay attention. I thought it was really good but Beezy hated it.
