Books! Books! Books!

I just got done reading two really good books.  The first one was Joie De Vivre by Robert Arbor.  It's about everyday life and food according to a french chef.  It's got lots of recipes and gives you a little glimpse inside the everyday life of a French family.  Very well written and entertaining.  Check out to read a few pages.

The second book was What the Bleep Do We Know.  I don't really know how to describe this one.  It talks about quantum physics and it's kinda new agey, and it talks about how we create our own reality but it's more scientific than the straight new age stuff.   Some parts are confusing cause I mean damn quantum physics.  Really?  And some stuff is pretty abstract but it's still a really good book and I  got a lot out of it.

Wedding time

Yea! I'm so excited!  My sister-in-law is getting married today.  I can't wait for the wedding and the dinner afterward.  I love going to weddings.  Hopefully I'll be able to post some pics.

So I'm going to be wearing this dress to a wedding.  I don't know what accessories to wear with it. I have an idea for the shoes but I'm not sure yet.  What about bracelets, earrings, necklaces, that kind of thing?  Any ideas?  If you can't tell the strip under the black is gold and the colors on the bottom are very bright.  I will also be wearing a black cardigan because the wedding is at night.  Let me know what you think.

Fast and the Furious 4

So I went to see the Fast and the Furious this weekend.  It was really good.  The movie was very action packed and the original cast stepped right back into character.  Now, I really like the first one and although I don't remember everything that happened the new one is a lot like the first one.  I saw the second one too and I only remember that Paul Walker and Tyrese were in that one.  I didn't see the third one, Tokyo Drift.  I don't even consider that the third one cause none of the original cast was in it (at least I don't think they were).  The newest one is set five years later and Dom and Letty are still doing their thing until...haha, not gonna tell.  Anyway, if you like soupped up bad azz cars and lots of action you're gonna love this movie.  If you love Vin Diesel or Paul Walker, you're gonna love this movie.  If you love Michelle Rodriguez then I don't know if you're gonna love this movie.  Hint, hint.

No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency

Has anyone seen this show yet?  If not you should check it out.  It stars Jill Scott as the detective.  I knew she could sing but she can also act.  The show is set in Botswana, Africa and it's about a woman named Precious Ramotswe (Jill Scott) who's father dies and leaves her a bunch of cows.  Apparently in Botswana owning a bunch of cows makes you very rich.  Precious sells the cows, moves to the city, and opens up a detective agency.  She solves everything from kidnappings to lost dogs, to cheating men, to men eaten by crocodiles.  And she does it all with the help of her feisty secretary and a friend who owns a auto repair shop.  I love the plots and all the characters, especially their accents.  The show makes you want to visit Botswana and become a detective at the same time. It's only on it's second episode so there's still time to get in on the ground floor.  Aires Sundays on HBO.
