Anyhow I'm seriously having withdrawl though! I have tried to use my bb to view all of your blogs; I wanted to comment on JewliaGoulias post about shopping with Jenn and talk about how great it was that she was havin a girls day; I wanted to post on Sue Tdid I just eat that out loud)'s post about how much her readers are appreciated, twitter and all- but I can't because I can't work my phone! I wanted to say what's up to marilee at the hicks mix because I think she is a riot! Julie over at a day in the wife, is amazing and her squirrel and my lamp are gettin it on. I also want to ask how her neighbour could call me monthly ( right around the 10th) for a sugarfix of fuckingscrumptuousgoodies. (Julie I'm not kidding)...but I can't! I wear glasses and still have issues using the buttons! My fingers feel like sausages trying to type- but today I have had it! I could not hold out till the keyboard is fixed! I fucking missed you all! So anyhow, not sure how many of you there are that read my stuff; but I know 2 of us are facebook friends (add me if ya want danon pascoa). So for y'all who don't know my eldest daughter joe dirt er.. Sophia decided to cut her bangs the other day. She looks like a young william wallace from braveheart!

Well if blogs had alter egos this would be mine! Its my 2nd site where I am trying to help other bad ass chicks like myself to start to appreciate their asses enough to go buy new panties to make them bootie-full! I shit you not!

Be insatiable my friends Xoxo Danon
hey ya'll...I found the post I was searchin for....it is not my post for today; however, I had to put it somewhere!! lol "Hasta la vista....Baby" it is these last words that captivate an audience and leaves them wanting more...(or less...Terminator XVII - no thank you!!); however, I have been watching a crap ton of movies as of late and it's these closing moments when your "quickie" is done with these characters that brings every lesson together. It ties all the loose ends together; gives us the "uh-huh"moment that we all lust after when we walk into the theatre, or press play. I have to say that as a person who is obsessed with movies (not in a cool Sundance sort of way) but I do really enjoy movies...the escapism of it all..the fact that no matter what, we can all drift off into fantasy, reality or the cosmic unknown for a brief point in time...*sigh* anyhow, i just thought I would share with you the most profound closings I have seen/heard/felt as of late.... 1. The Breakfast Club (spoken by Anthony Michael Hall - Brian Johnson) Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain... Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete... Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case... Claire Standish: ...a princess... John Bender: ...and a criminal... Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question?... Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club Ok, Im sorry to go with an obvious one, but really, it's such a great ending to the movie...and every time I watch it...I still get a little bit of a tingle... 2. The Power of One (spoken by Stephen Dorff -PK) P.K.: I remember my nanny would tell me, that if I listened to the wind, I would hear the voices of my past. I listened, and heard Doc talk about justice, I heard Geel Piet talk about hope, I heard Daboola Manzi, the odd medicine man, talk about courage. I heard Maria. These are the voice of my life, the voices of Africa. These are the voices I carry with me, as Duma and I set out, to bring our country closer to a better tomorrow. This was one of the most political movies I had seen when it came out. This movie is inspiring, moving and I thought it was really well done. I also can't get away from the South African accent that Stephan Dorff has in the movie. 3. The Wizard of Oz (Spoken by Judy Garland - Dorothy) Dorothy: Oh, but anyway, Toto, we're home. Home! And this is my room, and you're all here. And I'm not gonna leave here ever, ever again, because I love you all, and - oh, Auntie Em - there's no place like home! .....oh Auntie Em...GAH! I can't get enough of WOZ. :Some where ooooooover the rainboooow, blue birds flyyyyyyy" 4. Fight Club (Spoken by Edward Norton -Tyler Durden/ *** Jack/Joe ( I bet you didn't know he didn't have a name in the movie or book - he typically made Jack references though...like Jack's obdula oblongata) "You've met me at a really strange time in my life." um, ya..no shit! I think that the way this whole movie was put together is genius though. The book was super also. 5. Scarface (Spoken By Al Pacino - Tony Montana) "I'm Tony Montana! You fuck wit me, you fuckin' wit da best!" 'nuf said. 6. The Big Night (not spoken - but acted by Stanley Tucci and Campbell Scott) ...after a night of indulgence, laughter, wine and more..while bankruptcy and other woes may lay ahead two brothers sit down (both chefs) to a fresh omelet with their waiter and they sit in silence...it's magnificent - and if you're a foodie I highly recommend watching this flick!! 7. Remember the Titans (Spoken by Hayden Panettiere - Sheryl) Older Sheryl: People say that it can't work, black and white. Here, we make it work every day. We still have our disagreements, of course, but before we reach for hate, always, always, we remember the Titans. Goosebumps... anyhow to round out the most prominent one was from an unsuspecting movie that I just watched. 8. All about Steve (Spoken by Sandra Bullock - Mary Horowitz) "Why should you have to change to be normal? All you have to do is find someone who's as normal as you are." I love the truth in this. The fact that we all have our own individuality, what makes me "me"...you know....that "je ne sais quoi" it's equally as alluring to someone...it doesn't have to be everyone! Just sayin.... I also think it quite poetic the last words that some of the most renowned people of our time and our history's time. Beethoven, Ludwig van (1770-1827) "Friends applaud, the comedy is over." Dickinson, Emily (1830-1886) "... the fog is rising." Flynn, Errol (1909-1959) "I've had a hell of a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every minute of it." Picasso, Pablo (1881-1973) "Drink to me." Thomas, Dylan (1914-1953) "I have just had eighteen whiskeys in a row. I do believe that is a record." Voltaire (1694-1778) "This is no time to make new enemies." (Asked on his deathbed to forswear Satan) Just a thought or two...what are your favorites??? Leave me a comment and let me know!!!
(ok, totally off topic; however, when you write, do you ever sound out the words in your head??? - ok, I totally do and when ever i sound out happieness it sounds like ha-penis.!!!!) ok, GAME ON! So as I had subtly posted my little sister has gotten engaged!!!! I really am so very happy for her and The Fiancee (aka TF). He is truly a gentleman, a real giver...someone who I know has her best interests at heart and who's ha-penis is first and foremost. I can't say it enough...SOOOO THRILLED!!! Anyhow, so TF and her get back today from their 2 weeks in Cuba and it was amazing because we got to see mumma and have some dinner and just chill....I was able to reminisce about when Dan and I were planning our wedding.... Daniel and I on our wedding July 5, 2003 ....(as the harp plays a dream like chord)...I was a freak! I didn't see it then...but something happens to women when the ring goes on our finger...it like makes our brains speed up and everything is WEDDING...everyone is talking about WEDDING and everything but everything is about the WEDDING... now, please don't get me wrong...I loved my wedding - it was beautiful, the dress, flowers, weather, food...really -it was a great day BUT it came with some sacrifices. Dan and I argued a lot about me and my thick headedness...to his point, now I can see where I was being ridiculous...we also had thoughts about what type or where it should be...and you know, he let me to the deciding - despite his ideas or thoughts...not to say that he wasn't in agreement with my idea but it wasn't his first choice and I was too addicted to WEDDINGbells and Today's Bride to surrender to his requests... ...sigh...but in the long run our day was amazing! we both had fun, we laughed, talked, kissed, and had our family and friends there to celebrate with us. -- anyhow, so this post was about Seistor...so back to her... so as we all sat around the table tonight, trying not to ask too many questions (as they likely haven't talked about it as much as we all on the home front had fantasized) we tried to inquire about when, where, style etc...now, seistor is very amazing but she is a simple and traditional gal. She looked at me and asked "did you plan the whole thing?" like, I would do that! pa-chaw! I only had a couple ideas sister...and I couldn't tell you them because it's your day!!! I couldn't tell you that I have a vision of you in a vintage dress that is silky with beautiful applique on it, while your hair is slicked into a side bun/something with a beautiful red flower in your hair...while your bridal party looks amazing wearing burgundy/red/blood with white..I couldn't tell you that all I want to do is buy you a pair of Manolo Blahniks just like the ones that Carrie wore in Sex in the City - the movie! I mean, I can't ever afford them, but I would love to be able to... I had visions of Christmas/Winter themed wedding for you and TF....where you are so happy and overjoyed because of your special day, that it feels so warm and inviting. I am getting goosebumps now just thinking about it!!! I can see it all...but only in my eyes..I have no idea what you are thinking! I wanted to ask you soooo badly how you were feeling? What were you thinking when he asked you? Have you thought of the dress you would wear??? Do you have an idea of anything????!!! What are you most excited for?! AHH!!! I am so just in need of time with you. I can't believe that we only have until Tuesday and tomorrow's dinner is likely all we have before you go back until who knows when!! I really just hope/pray that I am able to be there enough for you while you are away... Like, what happens if you are away and decide that next year is the year...and you plan to do it here...how do we help you?! Maybe it's just best if my mind stops racing - because you are likely doing that too. Isn't it funny how a like we are? I know you are just dying with excitement and wonderment! I know that you can't wait to plan this out and draw your dress or something to design. Man I wish I was crafty and could design your wedding jewelry or something so you have a token of how special you are... I do have one thing, and I am not sure if you would want it or not...I have my veil...I had wanted to tell you tonight and offer it to you- but with TF there, I could see it was not the time nor the place...poor TF...he really just wants to take it casually. And i know you do too; however, I also know that you may want to have a girls day and squeal with excitement and champagne. Maybe sister, I'll just have to come out there and give you one of those days!!! *sigh* if wish that could happen...gah!!!! I wish that I could pay for every little thing for your wedding too. Seriously, if I could, I would. I don't want you to have to feel a burden about a wedding on top of everything. I want you to have the best photographer (um Jen Brindley...if you could ever come here to do her pics, my gawd that would just be amazing - because after all, the way you capture true moments of "love" is just amazing!); I want you to have the most beautiful flowers, hair, makeup, bridal party.... ....oh, there is just sooooooo much to cover; so many little things to do...and I haven't been able to talk with you about them...I can't wait for you to get back to Alberta and we can skype and talk and have the girly girl talks we need to have to celebrate this the right way!!! Just know that no matter what my little sister, I am totally here for whatever you need!!! I swear to you that no matter what you need of me, I will be there for ya! Ok kid...it's all you know..just let me know when it's ok to gush about the details and ask questions...I won't pressure until you're ready - just know that I am only holding back my excitement because I don't want you to feel overwhelmed or anything...or TF...I don't want him to feel pressured either..lol...poor guy! Ok, friends...sis...I love you all and am feeling a little too emotional to go on with my post...just know that today after seeing you both together, and the beautiful ring...I couldn't be happier!! (ha-pee-er) :)
The Insatiable Host: she needs a name...taking suggestions now!#comments#comments Ok friends...I have the pic up of "the lamp" i have 4 amazing fantastic and creative suggestions from Julie - A Day in the Wife...(and her fantastic Blue People Talking hubby who digs my pic and who loves my writing skillz becuase julie, i heard his thoughts..its all good!) these four names are sadly the only suggestions from you all i have gotten. Do i need to bribe you all with alcohol? Candy? Gift certificates??? Hmmm...how about this..how about if you all send me some more suggestions (not that i dont love yours Julie cuz Judith Light is likely my fav..) and I will start to think about give aways aside from undies.... Promise! My ideas for her are : Bette (Your Ass its a great Shade) Miller Stella Madame Lamps-a-lot Elle Mac FierceLight Uriah Phoebus (derived from the words Uriah (my light is Jehova) and Phoebus (light) Lux Lior (Lux - Latin for lux meaning light and Lior which is Hebrew for my light) Sunny Roshan (Roshan is Persian for bright or light) see... clearly i need help!!!
I can't believe that this post didn't post; however, as I am now re-writing my post of last night, I hope you all are well. Perhaps its great that the post didn't materialize yesterday. I have had a long-ass day and I am quite miserable today; well I was until I started reading all the blogs I follow; that totally cheered me up! anyhow, here goes nothing....I am a movie junkie. I absolutely love love love getting lost in films and stories and daydreams. They allow fantasies to become realities; they allow an escape from the everyday! Who doesn't love them?? I am not a movie junkie in the Sundance sense of the term; however, I really do appreciate film. Some of my favorite movies are timeless classics; sappy high school rom-coms; war movies; gangster films and kid flicks...some of my favs are: Some Like it Hot A Splendour in the Grass Braveheart Ever After Grease Chicago Immitation of Life Scarface Remember the Titans The Breakfast Club Weird Science The Lady in Red The Notebook and soooo many more.... anyhow, I actually have a point or a thought I would like to share...so let me get on with it... I love how movies take us on these journeys and leave us with lasting impressions. Most of all I love when the last lines of the feature...mAkE the FiLm!!! Case in point: The Breakfast Club - Brian Johnson: Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did *was* wrong. But we think you're crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us... In the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain... Andrew Clark: ...and an athlete... Allison Reynolds: ...and a basket case... Claire Standish: ...a princess... John Bender: ...and a criminal... Brian Johnson: Does that answer your question?... Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club. I love when you get that "cadbury secret" if you will...when everything comes together perfectly and the impression we are left with is just.....priceless. The Power of One - P.K.: I remember my nanny would tell me, that if I listened to the wind, I would hear the voices of my past. I listened, and heard Doc talk about justice, I heard Geel Piet talk about hope, I heard Daboola Manzi, the odd medicine man, talk about courage. I heard Maria. These are the voice of my life, the voices of Africa. These are the voices I carry with me, as Duma and I set out, to bring our country closer to a better tomorrow When the last lines mean or say something to us... All About Steve - "Why should you have to change to be normal? All you have to do is find someone who's as normal as you are." Classics that will forever stay with us... Gone With the Wind - Scarlett: Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all... tomorrow is another day. Or powerful heartfelt pieces throughout these films...sometimes the most important part of a movie can be captured in a few words... GI Jane "suck my dick" Remember the Titans "This is where they fought the battle of Gettysburg. Fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fighting the same fight that we are still fighting among ourselves today. This green field right here, painted red, bubblin' with the blood of young boys. Smoke and hot lead pouring right through their bodies. Listen to their souls, men. I killed my brother with malice in my heart. Hatred destroyed my family. You listen, and you take a lesson from the dead. If we don't come together right now on this hallowed ground, we too will be destroyed, just like they were. I don't care if you like each other of not, but you will respect each other. And maybe... I don't know, maybe we'll learn to play this game like men." A Few Good Men "You can't handle the truth!" Apollo 13 "Houston, we have a problem" Dirty Harry "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya punk?" Dead Poets Society "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary." Dirty Dancing "Nobody puts Baby in the Corner!" Mrs. Robinson "Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me. Aren't you?" Finding Neverland "Every time you hear a bell ring, it means that some angel's just got his wings." Never Been Kissed "Somebody once said, To write well, you have to write what you know." Well, here is what I know... " I know it's not much of a post...but these are some of the simplest things that I get enjoyment out of... what are your favorite lines in movies???? favorite last lines of novels????? famous last words??? PS. Last night's post was way better than this....there was humor, detail and explicits; today - not so much.
I have a question friends...I had a post yesterday and had saved it, had posted it and had theme music for it...and now it's gone. I don't know what happened; however, while I re-write it...if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them... Post, if you are out there somewhere or hiding in bloggyland..could you please come back?
Friends, Romans, Country-Men... It's been a few days since my last post, and I have to tell ya I have been BLAH frickin BLAH! I don;t know if this is all PMS or MSP, or what yo' but I have been having this "I need to eat my feelings, snack on your fist, and bite down hard till I get the satisfaction of not "wanting" any more. I haven't taken out my feelings on food (aside from the double-packet hot chocolate with bailey's...it's. a. weakness!) OMG I can't go there again, so I better not talk about it. I really have been doing well though on all other accounts. I am maintaining a healthy balance with working out, eating well and keeping my mind peaceful...now, I have said that i've been maintaining..and that's just it. I haven't excelled, I haven't wow'd myself with this. I actually had planned for a week to myself for my voice, mind, body and heart; however, I have renig'd. I took it back...I had today off - which ended up being filled with chaos from the kids - who also stayed home; filled with doing things and totally not focussing on the most important thing...HELLO MOI!!!! I am okay with it though....I laughed like I haven't laughed in a while, with the dood. I giggled and snuggled with smelly - even though I could have seriously grounded the girls for the rest of their natural born lives after the shit they pulled...let me explain... so 4:00 am comes on Sunday morning...this is an hour when no one should be awake- unless you are a twenty something creeping in from being out partying..this time should be for mother's going into labour or for shift workers who actually start work at sucha a rediculous time...NOT i repeat NOT for a mother to wake up to find her children making "goo" out of their baby powder and Cocoa Butter Body Butter (which happens to retail for $16.95 CAN). Not for a mother to find that this "goo" which could now retail for $.034 CAN in the stores has been smeared all over the walls of her daughters recently painted walls, dressers, desk, clothes and every single toy they own. Not for a mother to find her 3 children COVERED FROM HEAD TO FRICKEN TOE by this "Goo"!!!!!! I can't tell ya...I was seriously tremor-filled-boiling-over-the-top-RAGING-MAD!!! But rather than let my head spin around and blow off...I took my angry pillow, screamed every single foul mouthed thing that crept into my body...I think I had a temporary lapse of snaity...a "tweak" if you will..But after, when I had my fill...I totally stopped, giggled, rolled over and went to go clean the disaster area that was my kids room. um...where was I??? Sophia, ya...so she got to have a great afternoon with her daddy...they romped and roamed all over the city doing little errands. When she came back, her smile was probably as big as I had ever seen it! She was full of energy, warmth and love. All she could do was giggle when she came into see us. That and she shoved her hands on my neck and made me freeze!!! Soooo...aside from it being a totally not exciting-full of chills and thrills or riviting ramblings...that was my weekend... Oh, that and my husband and I have totally meshed with eachother and I can't tell you how wonderful it is to have him in my life. I know that "Ike" has his dickish moments; however, I totally have my "Tina" moments...so all that matters is that we have some great "tunes" together... I have been finding more and more reasons why I adore him and I think it's amazing. After being married for 7 years and being together for what...oh...11 I think that it's something that we really have just started to know one another (like man and wife; mommy daddy; hubby bubby) until just recently. I think we also have been working together on how to fight fair. How to repect eachother's boundaries. How to.... comprimise... I know that there are always good times; bad times; hard times; shit times; whatever...but I have to tell ya...I'm totally looking forward to what EVER time we have together...and can't wait to blog it all later!!! xoxox friendies!!! hope you are great and let me know whats up in your comments!!! tell me what you did this weekend, what you are going to do next weekend....anything!!!
I went into the kitchen to laugh away the tears that had surfaced - and I gotta tell ya, it fuckn hurt!! I couldn't believe him...and that he did that...IMMEDIATELY after it happened he was all "wow, that was way to hard, are you okay?" and did apologize to me...I (in fear of his masculinity) kept answering "yes sir, I am"
Now, every time he gets angry or stressed or anything...I call him Ike... "gear down Ike, you don't want to let things get out of control now do ya?" or "yes Ike, you are the lead singer of this band"...little does he know "Proud Mary keeps on burnin..
and we're rollin' rollin' rollin down the river.....
Then instantly the lights go dim, and I re-appear in a blue sequence "flapper-style" dress with killer legs and electric hair. The lights blast on to reveal the stage and my back up dancers and I do the dance......just.....like...Tina
Anyhow, so that was Saturday... we all went grocery shopping and had a blast!!! Again you all know how much I love taking the fam out, we sample the goods, teach the kids about veggies and I get to create in my head the perfect Sandwich. Seriously, this is what goes through my brain while shopping....LUNCH! I must have mental issues.
The rest of the day was with the kids and puttering about the house! I was a little sad though later in the day, as Jax was leaving for Cuba. Ya see, they had invited us to go with them for this trip. I know that it's something that could happen; however, when you have kids, and especially more than one it's more difficult to just pick up and leave them behind...there's sooo much organizing and to put on someone else's shoulders; however, its all good! I know we'll get away some day soon. I do hope she has fun though.
Sunday January 10, 2010
Today is a great day!!!! I always love Sundays because Dan's home and we always have a great time with the kids and easing our way into the day. We get up a little later, we snuggle on the couch (all 5 of us fit on this pig) and we have a great breakfast...its' just great. I made Bailey's and coffee, and we just were. We also watched Harry Potter (The Coblett of Fire) and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - two movies I totally love!
We were also gearing up to say good bye to Dan's brother Brandon. Today was the day that not only 1 sibling but 2 were leaving for some time. Seistor left at 3 am and Bran and Tess were leaving in the evening for Australia...we couldn't leave without saying good bye, so we made our way over to Chez Pascoa (his parent's house) and you could just feel the tension. Mima was sombre, Cort (the youngest brother who is 22) was himself, and Bran was solemn. The kids totally started to bawl and freak out that they will miss him; that totally ripped my heart out! They don't even see him every day or every week as it is, but because he is gone for a year, they were just so sad. It was really difficult to watch, and Brandon couldn't take it for long either....he had to walk away....we said our goodbyes, and wished him well. It's gonna be such an adventure!!! I'll def. give updates as we get them...and I also d/l Skype so we can totally talk when they are online. I did hear that they landed safely in Hong Kong earlier today, so that is great news!
We then took the kids to my moms...THANKS NANNA for watching the kids BTW..
Next up Dinner out with our friends!! We were going to Treadwell's Farm to Table Restaurant in Pt. Dalhousie (which is just like 25 mins from where we live out towards St. Catherines/Niagara on the Lake). I love love love love this restaurant...it was also where Dan and I went to celebrate our 6-year anniversary this past summer. Anyhow, so in "Insatiable Host" fashion, I documented the dining experience to share with everyone!!!
I can't tell you enough, just how amazing it was....really. I hope my shabby images can do some justice...but I swear, I was soooo satisfied when we left, as were our guests...it was just amazing!!
We arrived and were instantly greeted by Robert, the Somelier and manager at the restaurant. With his compliments along with Chef Steven Treadwell and Somelier/Co-Owner James Treadwell's wishes they popped a bottle of Rose Sparkling Wine for the table...it was soooo yummy (and a great effing way to start the evening out!!)
Again, apologies for not remembering the wine pairings; however, at this length of a post I am sure that you are sooo delighted that I didn`t...I couldn`t not share this with you all though, really. I mean, even though you all are likely to be very hungry right now and wanting to hit me with your free-weights, I hope you all know I still love you all.
We finally were winding down the evening and dessert time was about to commence...(sigh)
Starting from top left going clockwise...Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee with Cocoa Bean Icecream and a Cookie; Specialty Coffee of Baileys and Frangelico topped with fresh whipped cream (that was literally just made); Cheese selection and an Apple Clafoutie served wtih a Dolce La Leche Ice Cream Topped with an Apple Chip. Can you guess what one I had!!!!
So folks, that is it! Our evening out, with friends, enjoying amazing food, company; lots of laughs (like a shit-ton) and some great snaps for viewing pleasure. The only thing left to do was tour the kitchen. So we walked back there, and saw all the writing on the wall (from past guests who have dined at Chefs Table) and our favorite post was this one...AFRICA - Another Fucking Restaurant I Cant Afford!!! Chef Treadwell you and your crew rocked the socks outta us again and we thank you from our full bellies!
There you have it...3-days in review and I am now exhausted and am going to snuggle with my hubby and watch a flick and maybe get some extra snuggles (if ya know what I mean)!!! Enjoy my friends and until next time....I hope you all had a great weekend! Tell me what you all did.
