The Storm of the Century is Coming!!
I have decided to do a special post today dedicated to the storm that is on it's way! It is going to hit the east coast today and will be dumping snow on us all day Friday into Saturday. The wonderful weather people have predicted that my wonderful state of Maryland and the surrounding areas will be receiving 24 inches of snow this weekend! My new twitter friend @Love2Read4Fun has created some wonderful tags for this storm and they are the best way to describe my paranoia right now. LOL! They are: #snowpocalypse and #snowmageddon. Make sure you check out her blog at: http://lovetoreadforfun.blogspot.com/.
So here is a list of things that will be keeping The Bullock family occupied during the storm:
First up is the TV show Supernatural which features my new obsession Dean played by the irresistible Jensen Ackles. I originally bought Seasons 1-4 for myself so that I may drool and swoon over Dean. But my husband walked in on me watching an episode and started watching. Now my entire family must be present as I am quivering internally with Dean's beautiful face on the screen. Shoutout to all the Dean girls on Twitter!!! Dean Day is coming on 2/14/10 so make sure you come back to my blog on that day!
Whenever I think of blizzard I automatically think of the movie The Day After Tomorrow. What a great movie. It's a movie about the baddest ass storm ever! So bad it threatens to wipe out most of North America. It also features a touching story of parental love. What parent wouldn't venture out into the worse storm ever to save their child. Dennis Quaid is the father that goes out to find and rescue his son played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Jake's character is stuck in the New York City Public Library during the storm. Now I have to warn all the book lovers out there. There is a horrible scene in this film that features the burning of many books. If you don't think you can't stomach seeing books thrown into a fireplace in order to warm and save people, make sure you turn your head at that scene.
I might have to resort to torture this weekend if the males in my house act up. To do that I put in one of my favorite movies of all time. They hate this movie so much that the title alone makes them scream out loud. It's probably due to the fact that I became obsessed over it and watched it countless times. I mean who doesn't love Mr. Darcy! Yes it is the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice. And before you ladies start a debate over the Colin Firth version, I've seen it as well and this one is my favorite!
I also have a new item in my torture collection. The movie for the Broadway Musical Cats. I have tested it on the family and it is very effective. Just the mere mention of the word Cats makes my boys cover their ears and cower in fear!
Enough of the movies! Let's talk books. I will attempt to read this weekend as well. Keyword is attempt. Here is the book I am currently reading and obsessed about, Archangel's Kiss by the wonderful Nalini Singh:
I was literally on pins and needles to read this book. As most of you know Raphael is currently my book boyfriend. He was replaced by Ethan from Chloe Neill's The Chicagoland Vampires series. But not for long. I will always come back to my beautiful angel. Sigh.
After I'm done with AK I'm going to start on a new series I picked up. The first book of this series is Bound to Please by Lilli Feisty. The second book titled Dare To Surrender. I've heard this series is steamy so maybe they will keep me warm. LOL!
Well that's it for now. To those who are in the path of the storm keep yourselves warm and safe. Take care for now.
