Last night, I was invited to a celebration of epic proportions. And I do mean Epic. So sit back, relax, and prepare yourself for an adventure.... it's story time!
The thick blanket of mosquitoes choked off my resolve as we approached the old house. The sooner I made my way into the country abode, the better. Even Sean was hurrying to roll up the windows of the Chevelle, eager to be free of the insect canopy.
Three over sized cans of repellent balanced precariously on the edge of the recycle bins, as I reached impatiently for the front door. With a sluggish crack, the heavy door swung open, and I entered the quaint country house; not sparing a glance behind me in search of Sean.
The sounds of laughter, and free flowing wine, beckoned me towards the waiting crowd. I fixed a smile upon my pale face, as the formal introductions were made. Our host for the evening, Gino, had provided us with the most festive of feasts imaginable. Being that he is Italian, we were all in awe at the bevy of delicious treats that awaited us.
I settled in at once, nibbling on pasta and potatoes, before resigning myself to the recliner.
"You have to try my chicken, it's organic." Gino said, sipping on his wine.
I chuckled, and smiled politely at his request, but made no further attempt at engorging myself. I don't have anything against organic chicken - I quite like it actually - I just wasn't hungry. Sean helped himself to an array of rich food, before stumbling off into the living room.
The charming country house was an exceptionally comforting environment, compared to what waited each of us once we began our trek into the elements for the inevitable fireworks show. Geno motioned to the window that overlooked the enormous wooded yard. Apprehensively, I glanced through the lead pane, and gasped.
Two large torches lit the field where several unknown visitors were setting up for the festivities. The glowing embers of a massive bonfire echoed off the adjacent trees, sending flickers of ash into the night sky. And there, upon the ground, sat the biggest display of fireworks I have ever laid my eyes on (at least at someones home). Gino had definitely outdone himself this year.
Through the muggy haze, and clouds of mosquitoes, I could barely make out the shilouettes of the small chairs that circled around the firework display. It was then that I started to have serious doubts about our safety.
Dusk gave way to darkness, as I threw on my white cardigan, and sighed. I couldn't avoid this for too much longer. The door opened, and we all sauntered out into the evening. Immediately, we were ambushed by tiny flying insects that apparently have no fear of losing their own life. I frantically scrambled for the nearest can of repellent, and did my best to breathe as I plastered myself.
We made our way to the top of a small hill, overlooking the three excited pyrotechnics, and sat down upon the damp grass. I was all set for a great show, as promised. Gino did not disappoint. For fifteen minutes we were showered with unbelievable rays of light, and sonic booms. They gave most city fireworks a run for their money.
In my hasty attempt to snap photographs, I'd completely forgotten that I had the ability to record this peculiar phenomenon. There was only a few minutes left, and most of the enormous fireworks had already exploded overhead, but I had to give it a chance.
That is when disaster struck.
I had been so preoccupied with everyone else's safety, that I neglected my own. Suddenly, I was writhing in pain on the ground, as discards of ash plummeted down around me. It took all of two seconds to realize I couldn't see. Instinctively, I grasped my right eye, and despite my inner turmoil, I continued to "roll camera".
There was something gnawing, and scratching at my eye. My silent endurance was more than I could take. However, ruining this moment for everyone was out of the question. So, I waited. Waited. And waited some more; one hand clasped over my eye as tears streamed down my cheek.
As soon as the applause started to reverberate around me, I took off into the old, white house; Sean reluctantly on my tail. Sure enough, swollen eye, red as blood. The next thing I know, there's talk of Emergency rooms. That was not an option for me. I don't do hospitals. I may be the most accident prone person on the planet, but I can take care of myself.
So a night that began with anticipation, and wonder, turned into a battle for my eyesight. I am pleased to report that everything is fine today.
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! It wouldn't be a great holiday in my family, if someone didn't end up in the emergency room. Thankfully, this year, I avoided it.
Here's a look at some of the fireworks I was able to capture on film. I can't believe it never dawned on me to start recording it earlier. There were some incredible, beautiful, ones before I gathered my wits.
AMAZING JOB GINO! THANKS SO MUCH!

In light of recent events, revolving around Robert Pattinson, I have decided to join in the "Respect Robert Pattinson" campaign.
Pattinson is currently on location in NYC filming the movie, "Remember Me". The shoot is only a week old, yet there have already been several altercations with crazed fans. So much so, that Robert was clipped by a taxi cab last week, trying to avoid the rush of hysterical girls.
You can visit www.letmesign.com/respectme for complete details on the world wide campaign. The guy is just trying to do his job, and he deserves respect like everyone else.
I will keep a link on the side of my blog for anyone who wishes to visit the site in the future.

Hopefully we will all get to see the bikini dance next week! As for me, I am busy writing, and battling the flu at the moment. Being sick has a tendency to lead to compulsive/addicting behaviors for me, so I will do my best to control my boredom, and intense twittering. (What else is there to do when you are sick? hee hee)
Writing is coming along nicely, and I hope to post at least a chapter or two on my Storytime blog in the near future!
Have a great Monday/Tuesday/whatever day it is near you!

WE ONLY HAVE TILL MIDNIGHT (TONIGHT) TO HELP THEM OUT!
FOLLOW THEM AT WWW.TWITTER.COM/PETERFACINELLI
Click here for full story!!!
As an added incentive (and basically because I feel the need to avenge a little certain something to a few wonderful friends of mine) I will be donning the ever popular "Team Edward" shirt this weekend. So, if you are out and about at the Columbus Carriage Classic this weekend, you might just spot me.
(Oh yes girls, prepare yourselves - I don't do this very often)
NATURAL DISASTER TIME
For six hours, we were pummeled with thick blankets of rain, a constant flurry of lightning, and roars of thunder that shook the house like a bass drum. It has been our experience, that whenever a storm is THAT bad, we usually have a small amount of flooding in our basement.
"Did you clean the gutters?" I asked my husband, as his eyes remained fixated on a repetitious episode of Law and Order. "Uh-huh, they're clean."
An hour goes by, then two, then three. We lost power for a short time, but everything came back on rather quickly. It wasn't until I was at a pivotal point in my writing that I hear ....
"I NEED YOUR HELP!" Reverberating from the basement.
I knew what was happening. We were flooding. Sure enough, as I descend the stairs, there is a good two inches of standing water in the corner of the basement, spreading rapidly across my ultra cheap blue carpet. Then, it starts coming in from the other corner of the room, and all hell breaks loose!
"Holy S--T!" Sean screams, as panic sets in. "I don't know what to do. It's coming so fast." (Yes, he actually said that.)
Me, being the calm, level headed one of the family, quickly decides to take action in the form of buckets, towels, and carpet shampooer. Sean, however, goes off the deep end.
"I'm going outside to clean the gutters! We're going to have a major problem. It's not stopping!" He screams, bolting to the back door.
I spin around on the spot, grab him by the arm, and basically threaten his life. "You are NOT going outside in this! We're under a tornado warning for cripes sake!"
Reluctantly, he returns to the mess at hand, but things only escalate from there.
"I think I should call 911!" He shouts, totally consumed with misplaced fear. *sigh*
"Call them so they can do what? Mop up someones basement? Give it a rest, and just try to keep up with it." I laugh, as I spin dry some wet towels.
Two seconds later, he is out the door, through the backyard, and into the street. A second after that I hear this : "HOLY F'N S--T!" Not something that I, or any neighbor, wants to hear at two in the morning. So, of course, I'm out the door, making a bee-line for Sean, about ready to smack him upside the head. Instead, I freeze.
(And yes, that is Sean at the very end saying "Where is all this water coming from?")
*giggle* Oh you silly boys ... it's called RAIN!!!!!
So here's what I love about this situation. There is definitely something awful happening to our house, yet at two in the morning, we are both standing outside in our pj's, watching a torrent of water cascade down the street. Then it begins ...
"I think I should call 911!" Sean screams (again), "Seriously, this is bad. There is something blocking that drain. The city will come out and fix it. I'm gonna call them."
(At this point I am rolling my eyes, contemplating exactly how much a divorce is going to cost me, and about how my life seems to have been turned into an episode of Family Guy)
"Will you knock it off!" I shout back, at my worry-stricken Husband, "The city isn't going to come out here at two in the morning for something like this stupid! It's just rain for crying out loud!"
"No it's not! IT'S A NATURAL DISASTER!" He shouts (again at two in the morning)
I usher him back inside, pleading with him to keep quiet, and finally manage to clean up the majority of the standing water in the basement. Sean, of course, calmed down as soon as he saw we were making progress.
BUT ... the best part of my night was when he walked outside again (about ten minutes post natural disaster), and shouts :
"OH MY GOD .... ALL THE WATER IS GONE!"
I was laughing way too hard . "That's why they call them FLASH FLOODS!!!"
"I don't know what you're talking about. very funny. Obviously the city came out here while we were in the house, and fixed the drains."
I clasped my hands over my mouth, and let it go. Seriously? Really? *Heavy sigh*
Needless to say, we had an adventure last night, but this morning there was one more thing to add to the insanity that is my life. Our basement is alright for the moment. Sean cleaned the gutters (which were full of crap). So, as we hunker down for the next round of storms today, I see Sean picking up a chair from the kitchen table.
Wearing NOTHING but blue, tattered sweat pants, he opens the front door (coffee cup in hand), plants the chair firmly on the porch, and settles in for a leisurely morning of neighbor watching. I know what he is thinking ... None of these people saw what I saw last night, yessssss .... but the fact of my husband, sitting half naked, drinking a cup of coffee from an old Christmas mug, out in plain view of the public, is too much!!! (Love you honey)
I'm hiding in this office till I have to leave for Columbus.

THESE WISE WORDS ARE BROUGHT TO YOU BY "DOC" AND "LOLITA"!
What a lovely day outside! It's warm and sunny. The birds are out, cars are being washed, and what's this???...... There's a fresh layer of toxic doggy poop on the lawn?? Gotta love melting snow!
THE FINE ART OF POOPER SCOOPING:
1.) Never attempt a scoop without the proper equipment, this includes a heavy duty garbage bag for all the little presents left behind over winter. I cannot stress this enough! Do not think that your small little kitchen garbage bag, or your plastic baggy, will be strong enough. Everything will be going along just fine...until you pick the bag up. Then Poof...use your imagination!
2.) Check your scooper BEFORE you begin the procedure. You don't want any accidents!
3.) If you have neglected scooping over the winter (like I did), set aside at least 2 hours of your time.
4.) Never, and I mean NEVER, look up at your neighbor while continuing to walk through your lawn. Again, we don't want any accidents here.
5.) Make sure you wear some heavy duty boots while scooping. Oh, and make sure they are boots you don't care about.
6.) Don't ever walk through your kitchen, with said boots on, in search of more garbage bags. You'll just end up with another mess to clean up.
7.) Always scoop with a smile on your face. Keep thinking, hey...it could be worse. I could be Vicky right now.
8.) And if all else fails, remember my final words of wisdom:
- Keep your head down at all times
Have a great sunny day all! I know I will! *Heavy Sarcasm*

My sister insisted that everyone keep their glasses on their heads at all times. So as soon as the commercials came on...we all quick popped them on. Even though we knew none of them would be in 3D, we still snapped them on. This went on every single time the commercials happened, all the way up to the half time show.
"My glasses are defective" My mom kept saying.
We all giggled at that because we knew that none of them were in 3D.
We were all eager to see the trailer now that we had done nothing but wait and wait and wait...and wait some more, and more and more. We never stopped laughing though. It seems that my Dad looked a lot like Robin from the Batman series with his glasses on. LOL
Then, the moment came. We were all highly anticipating the arrival of the trailer, after having our glasses on and off...then on and off...then on and off again. We all snapped on our glasses...the trailer started....BAM! We all got hit in the face by a bouncy ball. (And all of us "oooohed" at the same time lol) Then....nothing. The trailer ended, the SoBee 3D commercial started....nothing.
"My glasses are defective" My mom says again. "Am I doing this wrong"
"Try closing one eye" A little voice squeaked.
The commercial starts for "Chuck" in 3D....still nothing.
2 hours of anticipation, and all we got was a bouncy ball. One lousy bouncy ball.
"My glasses are defective too" My Dad said.
YET...we all continued to wear them...throughout the whole experience, and even after the 3D commercials ended. I have never seen so much dissapointment after so much anticipation. It was really a funny moment though.
"That's it? All this hype for one bouncy ball?" I say.
So tonight I will give it another go by watching the "Chuck" show in 3D. Perhaps my glasses really ARE defective LOL

I have put together a small fan video of Public Enemies for you all to enjoy. (Okay, I don't like to use the word "fan"...how about appreciation video? Okay? Good!) It is a collection of photos from different stages of filming, and some good old fashioned road trip fun! Now, I am not a video maker by any means, so sorry for the shoddy graphics LOL
The video is 10 minutes long, but worth the watch, I think. It is split into 3 sections. 1.) Different filming sites, and friends. 2.) Meeting Johnny Depp, and John Michael Bolger 3.) Shots from between scenes
I picked 3 songs that I thought John Dillinger would like. ( I know I do) Some day soon, I will tell you my personal opinion on the bank robber himself. (It might be a bit long winded lol)
For now....I give you .....the video...
*If for some reason the video does not appear, or loads slowly, try back later. But please let me know if it is not working.
THANK YOU TO THE CAST AND CREW!

Also a HUGE "shout out" to all the fans of David Wenham who have emailed me, and sent me pictures, over the summer!!
*Some photos used in this video were emailed to me, and I can't remember who sent them. Others were from various blogs. I am sorry for any photos that were used without the proper credit.
