I went out for coffee this afternoon with Emma and Abbey, during which we had a thrilling discussion about piercings in people's nether regions. We all agreed that it squicked us, but you know, to each their own. Anyway, this movie is a classic. I've read in places that it's not supposed to be one of Jerry Lewis's best movies (actually, while hunting for reviews I came across a rather scathing one that made me really sad) but I love it.

#23. The Ladies Man (1961)

"Herbert. Herbert H. Heebert is my name."
"Oh. Herbert... H... Heebert. Uh, what's the 'H' stand for?"
"No, no I mean the other the H."
"No that's the same like the other part."
"Your name is Herbert Herbert? Oh. How in the world did that happen?"
"Oh, they think it started many years ago as a child. I was very stubborn, my mother used to yell outta the window, 'Herbert, HERBERT,' I never answered the first time so it stuck with me. Herbert Herbert Heebert. I got a pair of Herberts in front of my Heebert."

SYNOPSIS: Move over, Don Juan and Casanova - you've got competition from none other than Herbert H. Heebert. After being jilted by his gal, a depressed Herbert swears of romantic entanglements and is determined to live his life as a confirmed bachelor. However, he then finds employment at a Hollywood boardinghouse for women - and the female residents go wild over the newly hired help! And that's when the hapless Herbert graduates from being a simple handyman to becoming The Ladies Man!

WHY IS IT ON THE LIST: Every single time I would go and visit my grandparents, they would put this movie on for me. Even when i was living with them for awhile, they would let me watch this every single fricking night. God bless, they must have been so frustrated with me by the time I left! I LOVE Jerry Lewis. I grew up watching him and Dean Martin (as well as Abbott and Costello), and I have so many good memories of sitting in my pyjamas before bed, watching this movie and giggling like crazy. There are so many jokes and gags from this movie that my family and I still joke about with this day - the whole "Baby" gag, and the Herbert H. Heebert joke, and especially the bit where he gets his hand stuck on the toaster. I have so much love for this movie. Definitely in my top ten (and I think I need to start keeping track of my top ten, because at the rate I'm going I'll have twenty movies in there!

Anyone remember when Emma discovered Twilight fanfiction and started coming up with ideas for fanfiction? Yeah, it happened again.

"Okay so first there's Jacob. And he's a rogue agent, and everyone thinks he's for the vampires, but he's ACTUALLY FOR THE WEREWOLVES. So then he tries to get with Rosalie and Emmett is so mad about it because he's still in love with Rosalie*. And Rosalie realises she's in love with Jacob and one day Emmett walks in on them having sex and Jacob phases and devours them both. HE KILLS THEM DEANNA, BOTH OF THEM."

"Okay the next one has to be about Renesmee. She's a rogue agent too** and she KILLS JACOB because she's in love with Jasper. Because, OH MY GOD, get this, Jasper tells her that in order to prove her love she has to kill Jacob! BRILLIANT!***"

*At this point I was like, what the fuck, did Emmette and Roaslie break up or something? And Emma just pauses and goes, "uh, yeah why not," and then carried on all excited. NOTHING IS GOING TO GET IN THE WAY OF THE MURDER.

**I don't know what she's been watching but her current obsession is with making everyone a rogue agent.

***She was nearly hysterical with excitement at this point, I was laughing so hard I could barely type.

I'm battling a head cold and it's really hot so I keep switching between walking around in a big dressing gown, and walking around with no pants on. Yuck. Once again, some photos of really stupid things. Seriously, I am so lazy it's getting ridiculous. Oh well, I hope you enjoy some of them at least! Also, my best friend and I had an epic 90s music showdown on facebook. We basically kept posting 90s music videos, pissing off EVERYONE because there were a LOT of videos. We unanimously agreed that I won after I posted MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This". Anyway, I made a playlist based on what we posted, and I'm thinking about uploading it because it's kind of awesome...

DAY FIFTEEN - my favourite teacup (from South Africa) and our informative sugar jar:

Days Sixteen - Twenty-One )

So on the 16th (a Monday, I think), Emma and I got bored and decided to drive out to Brighton to get ice cream. We usually go to Cronulla, but decided on Brighton on a whim. The weather started out absolutely appalling (as you can see in the pictures) but by the time we got to Brighton, blue skies all 'round! I don't really like coming to Brighton because it seems to be the place for hoons to drive around in their cars and shout things at you, but that day was actually very peaceful.

One of my New Years resolutions for 2012 was to take a photo a day for the rest of the year. I contemplated posting a picture everyday but then realised how annoying that would be; hence the first weekly post! Every seven days, I'll make a round-up post of the pictures I've taken so I don't spam everyone's friends page. Also included are three bonus pictures of my adorable pets.

DAY ONE - Emma, taken in my kitchen:

Days Two - Seven )

And now for the munchkins!

Mostly just mixtape stuff. I burned myself out doing all these mixes for various big bangs, and it just wasn't fun anymore. I had a little spark of inspiration the other day, and I'm working on new mixes. They'll be posted on [livejournal.com profile] theworlditgoes, as usual, but I put a link on this journal too. So far, I've got:
  • Listen Up, Baby! - a punk-y, stompy music kind of mix HERE
  • Life in a Glass House - a Michael Glass fanmix (a character from The Morganville Vampires series)
  • Crave You; 2011 - a mix of my favourite songs this year (not necessarily released this year, just listened to a lot) HERE
  • Untitled - a mix that Emma and Abbey put together when I told them I was making a 'favourites of 2011' mix
They will all be posted before the new year, especially the favourites of  '11.

ALSO: I don't usually do this, but if anyone has any requests, or ideas for mixes, please feel free to leave a comment on this post. Who knows, I may be inspired!

We are having a serious discussion about how a zombie/robot love affair would work. She isn't even fazed by me asking the question. The joys of having a friend who can deal with my crazy :3
oh_deanna: (growing up cullen // omg so crude)
And after having a grand old time singing along to Nicki Minaj (using my crutches as microphones), we started talking about Twilight fanfiction (specifically, why a certain Big Bang had so many Carlisle/Edward pairings) and Emma decided that we needed to write a Twilight fanfiction of our own. Here are her suggestions:

"Okay. So there's Jasper and Rosalie and Emmett. And there's a love triangle. And Jasper and Rosalie are together. AND THEN EMMETT KILLS THEM."

"OR. Rosalie and Jacob are having like. hate-sex, and Rosalie's really into him,  but he's a little in love with Bella still. And Bella and Edward are together. AND THEN ROSALIE KILLS THEM."

She's got a bit of a one-track mind, as you can see :P She seems pretty keen, so keep your eyes out for "EMMETT/ROSALIE KILLS THEM!" the hot new Twilight fanfic!
