The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

About | Theme: "CANDY" | Roll
Next week "SHOES"


definition: CANDY -
A more or less solid article of confectionery -oftentimes with nuts *hint*!! ::choke:: Oops, excuse me!! Ahhhhhh, ::shrugging:: "Who cares" - "When you get to be my age, talk like this is a given!" "Isn't it?" "Around here, it is anyway!!"



No nuts here...but there is a warning label that states manufactured where nuts are used ---don't know what that means ::giggles::, but in any case...candy!



Easy as one two three!! In fact, three is a serving size. And I say to this, that's malarkey! Get real...one serving is more like 1/2 bag!!!! At least. And one more thing?------I bought this bag just to have something for the hunt! No, really!! :::hiding my crossed fingers behind my back::: Honest!!! And then, more importantly.....

A sweet confection with perhaps some goobers mixed in for the following? You decide!!





EYE CANDY with the above mentioned additive!!!
This is the program that I've saved, in my drawers um....stashed in my chest errrr....in a secret compartment, along with the ticket stubs to Rod Stewart's Live Concert from 4 years ago! Bud can confirm this - I wouldn't put our house in Tucson on the market to move to Texas until we got to SEE Rod Baby, Live...and in concert. The event was in August, I had tickets way in advance, AND we didn't put the house up for sale until the first of September. There was no way, in H E double L, I was gonna miss this!!!

Yes, eye candy.

<><><>

Friday we went to the opening showing of the newly released movie, Narnia: Prince Caspian.To tell the truth, I vaguely recalled the movie we saw [and have the DVD] that was released in 2005 - "the lion witch and wardrobe" of the series. But, I do remember mostly it was good. LOL As I and Bud love movies, we've waited patiently for a well-written movie to be released since the writer's strike months ago. AND! We're anxiously awaiting the one coming to town on Thursday of this following week...Indiana Jones! ::humming the theme as I type!:: I. J. and the Crystal Skull looks promising from what I've seen in previews, and it perhaps will close the book on a 'love interest of Indy -Marion- and perhaps introduce us to a 'new' Jones...Jr., Jr.!!

Anyway, back to Narnia. It was excellent. I liked this one a LOT better than the first one. I think it had more of a story than the first one too. At least I could understand and follow this one much better. Of course if I hadn't seen the Lion Witch and Wardrobe first, I would not have known what the heck was going on from the beginning. I must say this one, from the train depot through the adventure [as the mouse says in the movie, "Humans have no imagination!"] and back to the train depot at the end, excellent. The music was great. I don't think it ever 'skipped a beat' with the action. The special effects and the creatures were superb to my estimation. Loved the Narnian 'tricks' during the battle and the underground stint...it was clever, and made me want to cheer, of course, 'cause the bad guys were getting their armour skunked. The kids have grown a bit, but still the same cast along with a newbie, the Prince of Caspian. I applaud C. S. Lewis. I've never read the book series, but after seeing the 2nd one I'm inclined to sit down and read them someday real soon.

  2. Oh, I'm glad to see the new Narnia movie is good. My hubby wanted to see that for our anniversary, but I wasn't sure if it would be good, so now we can officially go see it :)

    Hmmmm, now I'm in the mood for some twizzlers and a movie!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Oh, I love Twizzlers! And hubby has Rod Stewart cds. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is one of my children's favorite movies. I have read all the books for this series!

    Have a great weekend, Anni.

  4. ROFL! Well... I wish I could be addicted to something as "safe" and low cal as Twizzlers! Noooooooooo... for me it's ALL ABOUT CHOCOLATE!!! I don't really care for any other kind of candy ... well except caramel! NOT that I won't EAT it... I just don't "care for it"... enought to BUY it! LOL! As for our good buddy Mr. Stewart... I've always considered his VOICE to be EAR candy... but I've NEVER thought of him as EYE candy! But I'll shut my eyes and he can croon to me alllllllll night long!

    ReplyDelete
  5. Look at you and that candy!! It's safe when I am around since I won't touch it, lol.
    Love your eye candy! first of all I love his music and secondly: it's my type! not those young ones who could be my son :)

    Happy Saturday and happy hunting !

  6. I read the Narnia series a few years ago -- it is excellent! I want to read it again some time.

    I'm with Melli -- chocolate is my candy of choice, too! But I know a few people who prefer gummy stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I like Rod Stewart too ! He is still "in" and doesn't age !
    I came back from Greece yesterday afternoon and have a lot to catch up and also sort out my pictures.

  8. Thank you for the review, as we are dciding on a flick for tomorrow night.

    The warning that a product is made where peanuts are used is essential to some folks with sever peanut allergies. Some are so sensitive that that nearness is enough, and knowing a healthy teenager who was assured that there were no peanuts in her salad and spent nearly a year in rehab to recover what she could of her muscle control and speech after nearly dying, I can say that it is a good warning.

    Katney: Yes, I know about the allergies of nuts of any kind....I was being funny in a 'nut'ty way. Regarding a whole different kind!! ~Anni

  12. Sometimes my Mommie buys Twizzlers because they are lowfat and she thinks she can eat a lot of them. She tries to stop at 6 sticks though. I never tried a Twizzler before. They look like a fun toy!

    ps: Thanks for saying nice things about my photos!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anni, I love the color of Twizzlers though I'm not big on them. And Rod Stewart was a hit when I was in grade school. I still remember some of his songs like Do You Think I'm Sexy and Some Guys Have All the Luck. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ah, I tried so hard in mine to avoid the word nuts:) Nobody's noticed though!

    Love the eye candy - best candy of all!

    thanks for visiting earlier:)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Well, you are totally nuts!!! And that's what I love about you :-)

    Ah, and Rod, yes, I must admit that he does look better now than ever before for some reason!

    I thought of eye candy at once I read what's the theme was, but no time to do some real eye candy shots and besides it's Mr L's birthday and guests are arriving soon, so....

    ReplyDelete
  16. Awesome PH entry Anni, and my hubby's fave is Twizzlers :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ah, yes, I see a lot of eye candy as well as regular candy!

    ReplyDelete
  18. At last! Someone put up a picture of licorice! I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. It seems this theme is a very unhealthy one LOL!! I don't think we have Twizzlers here in Malta, but I'm sure I'd like them... though with sweets (NOT with chocolate!) I'm keeping to my resolution not to have any as they really cause me pain. Bummer... I don't think I want to see more candy hunts!!

    Happy weekend Anni! :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Love your eye candy....that is a good take on the theme.
    Now I want to see the new movie!

  27. My youngest son ADORES, no, he is CRAZY for Twizzlers. Personally? I think they are too chewy, but not for my guy.

    And Rod Stewart? Oh yeah, definitely eye candy. lol

  35. Yes, I like Rod Stewart too. I have actually met him before! He is kinda short! :D But nice... I have a lot of his songs on my ipod.
    Last night we saw Prince Caspian too. Great Movie!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Anni,

    Wow! You got to see him LIVE? You are so lucky. I wouldn't have sold my house if I had those tickets either. Glad you held out. LOL

    I loved black licorice as a kid - not the pipes, but the twizzlers. I can't eat much candy anymore, but do coax the boys into giving me a piece of their red when they have it, which isn't often.

    I want to take the boys to see Prince Caspian. We saw The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and it was good. And you say this one is so much better... I'll be digging in my piggy bank to find enough money to go. LOL

    Take care and thank you once again for the beautiful web design that you made for me and for adding it to my blog. I absolutely LOVE it!!!

    Have a great weekend.
    Hugs,
    Mary

    ReplyDelete

  42. I think you would like the books. After the first movie I sat down and read the whole thing and I mean that is a lot of reading too. I enjoyed them all and waiting for this movie to come out. Will hopefully see it this week sometime.

  49. I'm not a big candy eater, so this week's theme has been difficult for me. I like your "eye" candy interpretation. =) My daughter saw Prince Caspian last night and loved it. I can't wait to see it myself. Hope you have a sweet and delicious weekend, Anni!

  61. The Sunday Snippet sure gave me a good laugh. I am a teacher and have been known to refer to my students as 'my kids'. Thanks to the Snippet I will be using the term more cautiously when outside of the work place!
