The Gnomes Are Coming!

by Kimberly A. Cook

Obviously I’ve been much busier than I realized the last three months, because I missed the new “Sherlock Gnomes” trailer! Saw it on tv last night and had to share. We got another snow event warning late Thursday, so what better way to look forward to Spring than the return of the gnomes!

My Gnomeo and Juliet are safe in the garage this winter, along with the rest of the gnomes and critters. Some need makeovers for this summer. But I am so excited to have a new Gnomes movie. Unleash the popcorn March 23rd!

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

We Work In Heels!

by Kimberly A. Cook

This week is the final push for the holidays. We can do this. Between moving my Mom,  cleaning out her house and running Spec Ops Cat into the vet three times last week, I’m a little festively frazzled. Spec Ops Cat is doing well now. I could use a bucket of spiked eggnog myself. And one of his B12 shots. And a dump truck load of Christmas cookies.

So when times get challenging, I like videos. One of my favorite dance numbers is this one from “Top Hat.” Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, backwards, in heels, in a long dress with FEATHERS! Notice how she has to kick the dress up to keep from killing herself. Us women rock. The dance number really picks up about the two-minute mark, so hang in there.

For a holiday bonus, I’ve added the just released trailer for “Oceans 8.” All women. With and without heels. Can’t wait to see this. Happy Holiday rush week!

Unless you live under a rock, you know the new Minions movie, “Despicable Me Three” opens today. I cannot get enough of these little yellow guys. Next on the agenda is to haunt McDonald’s to get the Happy Meal Minion’s toys. Gotta have them!

Beauty And The Beast Movie!

by Kimberly A. Cook               (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

One of my all time favorite scenes in the animated movie “Beauty and the Beast” is when he shows Belle the library. He had me at library! For any reader/writer, giving them a library is one of the greatest gifts on earth.

When I went to the Library of Congress for the first time I couldn’t even speak. The Mother ship of books! Pretty sure I teared up too.

So Disney brings us a live action and special effects masterpiece once again. Fire up the popcorn machine, we’re going to need tons! Make your plans now, it opens March 17.

Oh, I’m a sucker for guys wearing capes too. Zorro, Darth Vader, the Beast. Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Happy Birthday Jane Austen!

by Kimberly A. Cook                   (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Enough of the weather! Let’s get onto important things, like romance. Today is Jane Austen’s birthday, she was a truly amazing author. While I’d heard about Jane Austen, I never studied her work in school.

Then the 2005 movie of “Pride and Prejudice” came out. I was hooked for life. The words, the actors, the cinematography, the music; breathtaking.

Besides the scene in the rain, this is my second favorite; the happy ever after. When he walks across the pasture with his coat flying behind him and his shirt collar open, big time swooning commences on my part.

We all need more romance. Fire up the tv, grab a bowl of popcorn and watch Jane Austen tonight.

Happy Quirky Friday! Have a great weekend. Who cares about snow and cold weather when we have Jane Austen?

Harvest Moon Tonight!

by Kimberly A. Cook              (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

Tonight is the full Harvest Moon and I can feel the nip of Fall in the air. Mornings are cooler and some leaves are starting to turn colors, so that means comfy blankets, reading books, Hallmark Holiday movies and tons of FOOD! Fabulous.

To celebrate this big moon, felt an old time song would do the trick. Haven’t seen this movie yet, but Gordon MacRae was a pretty handsome guy back in the day and he could sing too! Not just a pretty face. He starred in “Oklahoma” and “Carousel” too. I might break out in show tunes!

Doris Day is amazing. One of my favorites and a great comic actress as well. Plus animal lover. Love her a lot.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday! Stock up on hot chocolate mix and apple cider now!

It’s Time To Find Dory!

by Kimberly A. Cook                  (Twitter@  WarriorTales)

It’s been another wacky week in the world. Seems the United Kingdom is divorcing Europe, but Scotland doesn’t want to go along. The ultimate family feud is brewing. The markets are upset, politicians are clueless, so what do the rest of us do?

When the going gets tough, the tough go to the movies! Especially if they’re animated. So let’s catch up on what Dory is up to, let’s enjoy “Finding Dory!” There are three trailers in one in this video.

Have a great weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!
