Shark Week




Happy Monday loves!!!

ok, so maybe not so happy....How were your weekends??? Please fill me in on the debauchery, please.

So I had a great weekend, starting of course with the Nancy Drew date on Friday as well as a leisurely lunch out with drinks...and yes, now that I am no longer in a Nancy Drew frenzy and I am thinking with a clear head...I still loved it.

Yes...it's a movie meant for children and the dreaded "tweens" I hear so much about...but it was a great movie for what it was, and Emma Roberts (new Nancy) did not even bother me as much as I thought she would. I was really afraid that just knowing that she was Julia Roberts niece was going to throw me off for the entire movie.

So that was how the weekend started...throw in some creating and some alcohol...and it was all fun.

My bubs and I also decided to have "Shark Week" in which all we watch are bad (and sometimes good, but that's rare) Shark movies...our big "living room" space is actually our studio, so we can pop in a movie and both continue to work on stuff (more about what we're working on in a minute), so this weekend we have seen...


Jaws (the original)
Jaws II (good, not great but good)
Jaws III in 3D (I think the best part of this one is every time there was a oart that should have been in 3d but wasn't my bubs sort of waved his arms about and said in a monster movie voice...3d...........3d...........
Jaws IV (this time it was personal...this is the first in a long line of smart shark movies, where the sharks hunt you because of who you are...not just because you are food.

we also saw...Red Water which starred Lou Diamond Phillips and Coolio...I think this was actually a made for TV movie, it was awful and there was a shark in a river....so you know it was bad.

ok, so I spend the weekend making things for my shop, as well as brainstorming with my bubs and coming up with ideas for.....our WEB COMIC...yes you heard it correctly we are going to have a web comic... it is actually the "Petite Heights" strip that was appearing in my Stiletto Heights comic, but we are doing tons of new ones....I say we, but in reality it is my bubs doing 85% of the work, I am the muse and the one that makes the people say what they are supposed to say.

I am the Stan Lee to his Jack Kirby (if you get that then you are a big geek like me).

So, now your wheels are spinning and you are thinking to yourself...where will I be able to read this wonderful thing....well sillies, it will be right here on my blog....It will be published on Sundays.

I am not saying it will start this Sunday....maybe next though, but I did want to give you a little heads up.

ok, enough of a ramble for now....I need another cup of coffee and I need to start packaging pieces (note the alliteration)

Tomorrow I will entertain you with a tag...oooh I know you can't wait more useless Jenn trivia!!

I'm with CGCL on this one: Shark movies are scary! They FREAK ME OUT! Having just gotten back from the beach, there is NO WAY I could watch one. (Sidenote: I've never watched one at any point.) There were kiddies playing out in the edge of the water while I was at the beach and all I could think was, "I hope a huge-mongous shark doesn't belly in and snatch one of the up for a tasty little treat." Ugh. They freak me out. :)

Glad you had a good weekend though. Can't wait to see the new items you have done.

And the online comic sounds fab. CAN'T WAIT!!!

Love you,

Karen Beth :)

Have you seen "Open Water"? Even tho it's based on a true story, it's a bit unbelievable--but scary anyway.

I always find what you can't see to be scarier than fiberglass fish!Lol!

Wow, I don't know what I'm more excited for, your web comic, or the thought of watching Jaws for the millionth time over Fourth of July week.

Your web comic, I guess. ;)
