Watched the rest of Airplane tonight!

Airplane,  the movie.  I watched the rest of it tonight.  Don't call me Shirley.  Right.  There was some funny moments that stuck out for me.  Of course,  I talked earlier about the hospital bit.  But,  whenever the nun began playing her guitar,  singing "Give me a little Respect",  singing it to the two black men in order to try to calm them down or make them feel good,   it was a classic. The fast strumming was something else.

Then,  Striker at the air controls,  thinking about plane crashes.  Old planes crashing,  world war 1 models, and even prehistoric model air planes that were crashing.  Does not give him much strength to land the plane.

And, of course,  the stewardess who said she was not ready to die when talking to the Doctor,  that she was not married yet.  And,  then other woman that came in,  and said,  at least I am married if the plane goes down.  That was one of those old gimmick jokes,  but a classic.  Then,  Striker lands the plane,  and his captain from the war is still talking as if he is there...  Very funny...  How many times in real life,  when we meet a talkative person on the phone,  and we just dump it to the side,  then come back after we do something and they are still yapping..  Funny indeed.

Still,  this Airplane movie was the beginning style for other comedies like Scary Movie.  Very crazily done. Some shock humor thrown in there as well. Without much realism to it.  It is a good style now and then,  but it differs from National Lampoons vacation or even Tommy Boy.  We all need different varieties ever so often.  It was great to watch it again..  Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
