Revisiting My Public Enemies Video!

I know I have posted this before, but since the Wisconsin Premiere is approaching quickly, I thought now would be a good time for a stroll down memory lane!

2008 will be a year that I won't soon forget! Thanks to all my friends who shared their time, and experiences, with me! I love you!

Also, a special thank you to Johnny Depp, and the cast/crew of Public Enemies! The time you spent here will forever remain in our memory!

So for now, I leave you with this .... have a great weekend!
*It's divided into three parts : Productions set up/friends/basecamp, Actors, and Filming

Here you are ... (It's just a slide show, and yes, I know I am not very good at them lol)

Respect Robert Pattinson Campaign

(Yes, my friends, I know ... I know ... last one of these I swear, then back to the usual groove.)


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.

Take care!

Victory!

Thanks to all that joined www.twitter.com/peterfacinelli




He won the bet against Rob DeFranco ( www.twitter.com/211me ) !!!



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!

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.

This is what I see running down my street, and into my yard. (Sorry, it was dark)

(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.

Facinelli and Birmingham ... Follow them on Twitter!

Peter Facinelli (Twilight, New Moon, Nurse Jackie) is in a race to get 500,000 followers on Twitter by THIS Friday! He has a bet going with his friend, Rob DeFranco, that he could get 500,000 people to follow him on Twitter. If he wins, Rob has to wear a bikini on Hollywood Blvd, while singing "Single Ladies". If he loses, Peter must relinquish his actor's chair (And we don't want that to happen).

If you're on Twitter, follow him at www.Twitter.com/Peterfacinelli
(And even if you're not using Twitter, sign up, it's fun, and free)

There is also a great article from the Twilight Examiner (Amanda Bell), and you can read that here : http://www.examiner.com/x-4908-Twilight-Examiner~y2009m6d16-Demi-Moore-Perez-Hilton-Ryan-Seacrest-and-other-stars-come-out-in-support-of-Peter-Facinellis-be
(Great website Amanda - Keep it up!)

Also, Gil Birmingham (Twilight, New Moon, Love Ranch), is in his own epic race to 100,000 followers. If he gets them, then he will show us a photo of his own (*wink).

You can follow him on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/Gilbirmingham

Both of them are great actors, and I wish them all the best! Good luck to both of you! I hope you guys win!

A Strange Dell-ish Experience

I was fortunate enough to be invited up the Wilderness Resort in the Wisconsin Dells this past weekend. We all had a blast, despite the fact it rained the majority of the time. Friday was our only sunny day, and that was okay with me. I'm all about a good storm! (Even though there was no thunder to be had)

It was exciting to see Lake Delton back to its former glory. Even the Tommy Bartlet show was running its water ski program once more. They revampt their entire show. I didn't get to see it, but I hear that there is a lot more of an acting/play atmosphere this summer. They also had a great sign outside the building, letting people know what exactly was new this year!



I did, however, find some of the sights a bit comical. For instance, ever driven behind a Moose's back end before?
Or how about becoming good old Cap'n Stinky?
Not to mention a restaurant where you can draw on the table.... notice my handy work?

I hope everyone is looking forward to an awesome summer!
