Movie Review...Fast and The Furious 7.

Oh My Gosh...This movie has to be the biggest tear-jerker I have watched this year!! I couldn't deal with the last 10 minutes and sobbed uncontrollably for the next 15 minutes after watching it.
But that aside...the fight scenes between Jason-The Rock and Vin-Jason...f**king awesome !!!
A part of me feels guilty for enjoying the car crashes, stunts and the fight scenes so much, when I know coming is the very emotional ending tribute to Paul Walker.

An interview with Jason about Fast and the Furious 7
'It's not new, it's not fresh but it's real'

Love this interview too. 
'Clearly humble'

Emotional ending


If you don't wanna talk to me,
just tell me.
If you don't wanna see me,
just tell me.

If the words I say, don't interest you,
just tell me.
If the way I look don't suit you,
just tell me.

Don't just leave me hanging,
as if I mean nothing,
Don't leave me wondering,
and over-thinking.
Just tell me...I deserve that from you.

Sea Side Bach.

Been on my first 1st date in 25 years *Bashful Face* and to be honest...I had a blast and am very intrigued to see if this goes any further. *Fingers crossed*
Not your standard run of the mill first dates but never the less it qualifies. You know the standard date where you meet in a public place and have something to drink or eat but it's just the 2 of you talking and getting to know each other, maybe you're first visual/ interaction etc??
So...I have been talking to this 'Cowboy' for a week...7 days of texting and phone calls only, when he says that he's having a bbq on Thursday night (Easter weekend here) come over and meet the hombre's *Holy-Shit Face* Of course I casually accept. I mean I know all there is to know right...his occupation, his cell number, his address, his hobbies, spoken to a hombre of his and they've been friend for 8 years, and a whole heap of other things that make him a real person. No worries.
This will be our first visual of each other and I will be walking into a bbq/party situation on his turf with his hombre's and don't really know what the host looks like (yes I had seen pics but they were those abstract kinda ones)...And the biggest problem I had with the situation was...WTF do I wear??? At the moment, here in NZ it is Autumn and there is some sort of weather cyclone thingy hovering about the country, pelting my town with driving rain, soaking everything in its path but that wasn't going to deter me. 
So I loaded up with the things that they are...woolen gloves and hat and big blardy head to toe puffer jacket...I mean it was a bbq, party in the garage so it will be col right???. it not when there are several heating sources available to keep the cold at bay...I nearly became the entertainment for the evening...stripping off the layers so I didn't pass out from heat exhaustion or worse yet...sweat everywhere. 
I head out to the address given and drove past his house a couple times (like a stalker) before I parked up about 100 meters down the road...I nearly talked myself out of going in but i could here the music and people having a good time and I thought well it cant be that bad...could it? I got my shit together and proceeded to enter the property.
This is the conversation I'm having with myself whilst standing in sight of said party-goers completely gob-smacked.
'WTF...he told me that he lived in a wee seaside bach and if he stood on his tippee toes he could see  the ocean'  I am standing looking a  f**king 2 story beach-front condo with an amazing view of the beach and the little beach-side village!!! I guess the only time he'd have to stand on tippee toes (he's 5ft 8in) to see the ocean would be when he was on his wrap around glass deck to look over the pot plants there. And those were my first words to him...Wee seaside bach my arse!  And that was the beginning of our first date. 
Let me tell really was a great night...he was a perfect and attentive host (to me)*blushing now* his hombre's were freaking awesome and so welcoming and we danced and sung ourselves stupid into the wee hours of the his bar, in the garage. There was even a couple of kisses *Really Blushing Now* and some hand holding.
So yes all in all it was the best first date ever and I do hope there's more to come. 
PLEASE...Let there be more to come.

TBR 2017...Bk11/52 Island of Glass

ISLAND OF GLASS  Nora Roberts Book 3 of The Guardians Trilogy

Annika - a mermaid
Sawyer - time traveler with a magic compass
Riley - an archaeologist werewolf
Doyle - an immortal warrior
Bran - an Irish sorcerer
Sasha - an artist and seer

This group of gifted strangers, called together by the three moon goddesses, has seen battle and have had success. They are no longer strangers on individual quests, but guardians on their final quest. They have fought fiercely and loved passionately. Well, Sasha, Bran, Sawyer and Annika have, loved passionately - that is.
This final quest to find and secure the Ice Star will be a supreme test for Riley, the archaeologist werewolf and Doyle, the immortal warrior. This is their love story as well.

A very enjoyable and captivating read and a great wrap up to end the series.  I shall miss these 6 Guardians.

Nora Roberts is one of my favourite authors and I simply devour her books. It was her 3 Sisters Island Trilogy that started my love for her and I have never looked back or found one of her books that I haven't liked.

TBR 2017...Book 10/52. Fire Bound.

So reading novels is another 'something' that I'll add into the mix of things that I like to do. And my local library indulges this pleasure for me.
Some of me ole favourite authors are: JRWard...Danielle Steel...Patricia Cornwell...Sherrilyn Kenyon...Christine Feehan...Nora Roberts...Lucinda Reilly and The Seven Sisters series is a new addition this year. I'm gonna try Lee Childs and J D Robb this year too.
My aim is 1 book a week, though I read 54 books last year AND I started reading again in late February after a 1 year?? break. I have a lot of books to catch up on, series that I have got part way though and need to finish or get up-to-date with along with recent works of my favourite authors.
I have already read 10 out-of 52 books this year (a couple behind actually) and have just started on my 11th book. (Nora Roberts Bk 3 of The Guardians Trilogy)
If your into Paranormal Romance novels try this series.

Christine Feehan...Fire Bound (Sisters of the Heart #5)

This is the fifth installment in Feehan's "Sisters of the Heart" series. It tells the story of Lissa (Giacinta)and Casimir. Lissa has secrets that she has kept from her adopted sisters, and one of those secrets has her leaving Sea Haven on a mission she does not expect to come back from. Casimir Prakenskii has been recruited by his brothers to follow her and keep her safe. They fall in love quickly and it can get intense with some very erotic and graphic love scenes. Big fan of Christine Feehan, even though she is a new author me and this is my first series of her books I've read.

Movie Review...Jupiter Ascending.

"Jupiter Ascending" is a Fantasy/Sci-Fi. 
It tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down, it is only then, does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along. Jupiter is destined to be a heiress of intergalactic nobility.
Jupiter Ascending has some absolutely spectacular highs, including an astonishingly complicated chase over and through Chicago. The special effects are often outstanding and many of the action set pieces are handled quite skillfully. It has an interesting plot if somewhat confusing at times. The story line can be hard to follow with so much happening all the time. 2 stars (and one just for Channing Tatum).

Dating Site Disaster.

I signed up on a dating site....Yip I signed up on a dating site. This by far is the craziest thing that I have done in my years as being a single woman. I have opened the door AND my eyes to this big, wide world of dating.
BACKGROUND...7 years divorced and 1 'short' interlude of about 1 month...I am definitely out of the game. I focused on bringing my children up and releasing them into this crazy ass world as beautiful, as-unbroken-as-I-could-get-them, productive, law-abiding members of society and I am pleased to say I believe I have succeeded. Needless to say, I wasn't interested in another relationship AT ALL, and the 'short' interlude I had was disastrous.  So I remain single. I'm not intending to be on my own for the rest of my life and I am quite happy being a strong, self-sufficient, independent women but I think it's time to start this 'dating' game. 
THIS DATING SITE I'VE SIGNED UP ON...Forget it. Its been 3 days and 30+ candidates and already I am OVER it.  Nowhere on my profile does it say I wish to see a picture of your penis and within the first couple of messages when I'm asked do you want to swap pics, I didn't realize that it was suppose to be of extended male sexual organs!
Actual conversation
MrPenis: Good morning. How are you?
Me: Not so bad thanks...Whats your plans for the day?
MrPenis: Just finished an 55 hr week so looking forward to some down you have a photo??
Me: Sure
I feel like I'm on a porn site rather than a dating site...not that I have any experience on this.  So delete my profile it is and I'll stick to doing this the old fashion way. You know person to person. Maybe then I won't see so many male sexual organs on the first meeting??

TBR 2017...Bk 17/52: Working Class Boy By Mr Jimmy Barnes

Really enjoyed this book.  This is a 2016 memoir of James Dixon Swan aka Jimmy Barnes. It tells of of his childhood in Glasgow and in Adela...
