Watched Will Ferrells show "Everything must go!"

We heard the songs about it. Country songs, Sammy Kershaw, "Yard Sale", and George Jones "Closing of the door".  This is when the other half leaves, without even recognizing you are alive. They lock up the doors, and you find everything gone. This happens quite often, in the journey in life. To our friends, and sometimes to ourselves.

"Everything must go", is one of those shows, where Will Ferrell as Nick Hasley loses his job mostly over his problem with alcohol. He finds his credit cards do not work,  and finds his furniture on the lawn as well, with the door locked into his home. His wife has left him as well, over his crazy behavior. His so called buddy, a police detective, gives him 5 days to get things in order and to leave the lawn. Do a yard sale.

In the time he sits around his lawn over these few days, he makes friends with a young boy on the street. Emptying beer cans becomes his passion. He also makes friends with a woman who is pregnant across the road, who he confides in. He tries to find something to hold onto in his past, as he checks out an old flame who had a crush on him in earlier life.

This show was a extreme low budget production. There are no fireworks, no spaceships buzzing around Pluto, and no lasers blasting from mega guns. This show, I would give it a 6.5 on 10. Will Ferrell does, actually show a part of his acting (the more serious part), very well. If given a different serious role, I am sure he could garner an Oscar. But, the show drags on. It is not totally surprising, and does not leave you with that "Ahhh" moment. But, it does portray a part of life where many people go through, tough times. And, they are no where near fun. Just to get a restart, a new job, is a tough job in todays economy. I feel for this guy.

Besides that, not much new on the book front. I got 162 friends on twitter. It grows by 5 a day, approximately.  Have a good day,  till next time at the theatre..

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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
