movie mania

As some of you already know I'm a huge NetFlix junkie. I've been a member since 05. I average about 2 movies a week depending on how busy my schedule is. I enjoy cheesy romantic movies like "the Notebook" and "Dirty Dancing". In addition I like drama and based on true story type movies. With this being said this is the start to my movie of the month/week endorsement.

For the period piece/ based on the true story lovers this movie will hit home.

The Duchess
Keira Knightley stars as Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire, in this adaptation of Amanda Foreman's novel. Unhappily married to the duke of Devonshire (Ralph Fiennes, in a Golden Globe-nominated role), Georgiana indulges in extravagant vices and begins a scandalous affair with politician Charles Grey (Dominic Cooper). Director Saul Dibb's drama about the aristocratic 18th-century femme fatale received an Oscar nomination for Best Costume Design.

a few fun nights

Last Friday Adam and I went on a pub crawl in Little Five. We started with a little dinner at a local pizza place and went drinking from there. Some of the stops were the Porter, The Corner Tavern and Front Page News. We played a good game of Darts. In fact Adam and I bought a dart board for the house so we can get our A game in shape. Look out. Here are a few pics from

the night.

Me and the girls

Kelly is really good

My man is chillin

Last night Michelle and Barrett hosted what I hope will be the first of many Wii Game Night. Of course Adam and I had to have a crazy team name. After many options we went with Raspberry Wasabi Mustard. For many reasons I won't get into right now this name is perfect for us.
Was there any doubt that I would be the Captain of this team, I don't think so.

It was the very first time I played Wii so our team was starting behind the 8 ball. We had a great time. I never laughed so hard as I did when Barrett was on the dance pad. too funny.

The Big Show

Hey Folks,

So I'm super excited that my boys made it to the big show this year. It's a nice pick-me-up from the dissapointing slaughter of Penn State in the Rose Bowl. I have no doubt that the Steelers will secure a victory and be XLIII Super Bowl Champs.

My favorite player by far is number 43 Troy Polamalu. Besides having a cool last name and wild curly black hair the guy is awesome. He always seems to be where the ball is. His consistant intensity makes for good football watching. He's just sick. Absolutly earns his paycheck every game. Not to mention that his uncle, Al Pola, played at Penn State.

I don't know yet where I'll be watching the game. Regardless I will be decked out in Steelers gear... including my terrible towel. GO STEELERS!
