Five on Friday

1. I need a 2015 Calendar

I was so excited when I saw the email about signing up for the 2015 Ky Derby Mini Marathon.  This would be my 7th time doing that race.  I knew I may be walking it all with how my knee has been, but I know its a long ways away & I wanted a goal.  So I clicked all the right places on the web site, put in my payment information, & BAM - registered!  .... then I go home & am working out & it hits me like a ton of bricks.  NO NO NO NO NO .... I run upstairs & looks at my pile of post it notes for 2015 & yep, I have a wedding scheduled that same day.  If it was a regular photo session, not a problem - I've done those after a race.... this is a wedding. A whole day event.  Well poop! 


So I just basically lost $65.00... or I'll look at it this way - I'm getting a $65.00 race shirt.  I really need to get my 2015 calendar this weekend & mark down all my photo sessions I already have. Geez.

2. Michael Keaton

I heard on the radio this morning that they are going to make a new Beetlejuice.  Really?  Yep... its supposed to be true.  Michael Keaton is coming back & Winona Ryder as well.  Maybe its her daughter that brings Beetlejuice back?  I can't imagine it being any good.  The original came out in the 80's where goofy & over the top was normal.  Now?  I'm thinking it may be dumb.  But a movie about Ninja Turtles originally from the 80's topped the charts last weekend, so what do I know?

But I have always loved Michael Keaton.  Mr. Mom is one of the best movies ever... & him as the original Batman? YES!  I know Adam West is the original Batman, but that guy wore lavender tights with silk accents... just no.  I still get dreamy eyed when I see Michael Keaton in the scene where he's watching the screens in his Batcave & he has on his glasses & a black turtle neck. 


Forget Beetlejuice ... forget Ben Affleck - bring Michael Keaton back as Batman! 
I'm starting a petition!

3. Allison Holker

I saw where Allison Holker is going to be a new Pro dancer on Dancing with the Stars this year.  I was so excited.  I have loved her since she was a contestant on So you think you can dance... & then when she & Twitch got married, I totally stalked their wedding on Instagram... & I love all the things she's popped up on through the years.  She's amazing.  Simply amazing.  She actually has done a few dances with Derek on DWTS.... I'm SO EXCITED she's going to get more attention on DWTS.  Now we'll have to see who she gets as a partner.  Fingers crossed its someone good.

& I tweeted how excited I was that she on the show & she actually 'favorited' my tweet... I just love that girl!

4. Spam Comments

Well... there you go.....

I'm getting slammed with spam in comments lately.  Granted, its on old posts - I mean OLD posts - from years ago... but I don't know what to do about it.  I hate turning on the captcha things.  Those are always so irritating to deal with.  Anyone have any tricks on getting comment spam from not happening?

5.  Shark Week... I don't get it...

People get really excited over Shark Week, don't they? ... I'm not sure I understand the appeal.  But I'm also the person who doesn't ever want to get in water where creatures are living.  Even small fish.  Forget about ones that can chomp my body in half with one bite.

But its SHARK ALL THE THINGS this week.  I have to say, I've seen some awesome Shark finger nails, some awesome Shark heels, some awesome Shark make up done this week... but I just don't get it. 

If it were DISNEY WEEK... or PUPPY WEEK... or STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN WEEK.... THAT I would understand.

Happy Friday Y'all!!!


  1. I just like saying Shark Week with a special emphasis on the word shark. I don't watch any of the shows.

  2. I never really got into Shark Week either... I actually JUST saw Jaws for the first time a couple of weeks ago, ha! Now Disney week... that would be a different story :) Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I need to get my 2015 calendar too- too many wedding dates to remember already! I have some spam catcher- akismet. It seems to work well!

  4. Didn't Michale Keaton do a movie called, My Life? He makes video tapes for his son? Tear jerker to be sure!!!!
    Can't wait to see the new shirt :-)


  5. I HATE spam comments! That is crazy about making another Beetlejuice, I can't wait to see more. Enjoy your weekend girl!

  6. I love getting new planners - just makes me feel so organized!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  7. I have been getting a ton of spam comments too, and I have no idea why!! Let me know if you figure something out...

  8. Ohh no, bummer about the race, but at least it's a good reason not to be able to run? I don't get shark week either-- I've just never had the slightest interest in watching!

  9. I need a 2015 calendar too! I hate planning so far out, but with so much going on, I really need to!
