Mother-to-be Miccah Smith, wife to Randy Duckett of Hickory, NC, announced her plan Tuesday to begin what she refers to as a "9-month vacation" during her pregnancy.
"All I know is that I just feel like lying around and eating ice cream, or whatever," said the Rubenesque brunette to reporters Tuesday evening.
"Randy is already beginning to go sort of nutty, cutting out non-skid patches for the bathtub in cute animal shapes, and cleaning the bathrooms without being asked. I'm not even allowed to carry a gallon of milk in from the car. A girl could get used to this, so I'm going to try."
A source close to the happy couple confirms that Miccah "complains of sharp hunger pains" which send her running for the nearby Japanese Super Buffet as often as 6 times a day.
"Poor thing," said the friend. "It's all she can do to lie on the couch and spoon ice cream into her mouth without becoming exhausted or nauseous. This is going to be a very difficult pregnancy."
Miccah agreed. "Yes," she sighed. "And I'm going to enjoy every minute of it."
A movie based on an 70s TV show. Not having seen the show I can't tell you if it stays in the true to the spirit of the show. Stars Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson. These two had made many movies together, and you can tell there's a chemistry between them. With Todd Phillips at the helm this movie was amusing. Look for cameos from actors in Old School and Road Trip.
This story from Reuter Health talks about "a new technique could make it possible to detect fetal abnormalities with a sample of the mother's blood, instead of invasive procedures which can put the pregnancy at risk." Interesting.
I am proud to make this announcement on Miccah.com. So it is confirmed. Miccah has officially been impregnated (by her husband we assume). The doctor says she is 5 weeks into her pregnancy and that she will give birth sometime in November! Very exciting stuff. I will see her this weekend and possibly give another update. Looking forward to being an uncle... I wonder if she's seen the movie Rosemary's Baby.

From this article
This is a German film about a high-strung perfectionist cook named Martha. The movie title gets it right the trailer (and the poster) doesn't. The trailer's scenes were chosen specifically to deliberately mislead the viewer into thinking this is a romantic movie about Martha and the gentlemen pictured. Not at all, it's Mostly (about) Martha. The man shown in the scenes does not come until later into the movie and he has a small supporting role. That being said it's relatively good.
Also the usual cooking movie warning applies: There will be delicious food being shown so remember you may salivate with hunger after watching it.
This Anime is interesting for the curiosity factor. That is, are you really curious to know what an Anime would be like if it was made by one man on his home computer? I knew that going in. So I didn't have high expectations. That being said. I still didn't like this movie. I still expected quality though because some reviewers have expressed how touching the movie is. Yeah.. more like out of touch! Visually it looks nice. But story wise it doesn't make a lot of sense. But then since where did Anime make a lot of sense?
I made some wrong assumptions about this movie. First, I thought Tuscan was a city in southwestern US. I had absolutely no idea Tuscan was in another country entirely. Second, I assumed this movie would be somewhat enjoyable because it had a nice pleasant picture of a sunflower on the cover. I was wrong on both counts. Shit. Please remind me to NOT judge a movie by it's cover.
Yeah, this movie isn't terrible and I'm not to terribly fond of it. Mainly because I've seen movies like this way to many times. Movies like this that tries too hard to shove it's message down our throats. Messages about how life in small rural towns are so much better and so much simpler. Well how about small towns are so much more boring! With so many more inbred backwards people! And how can the main character live there just like that? Isn't there some law in every country against idiotic Americans from settling down? For god sakes she didn't even marry a Italian. And that's another thing. The character is so unbelievably annoying I can't stand it! She's ten times more worse than Diane Keaton's character in Something's Gotta Give. Which by the way is a much funnier movie than this. Which reminds me. There is a fascinating parallel between the two movies: Both are about women who are turning old. Both are failed writers. Both movies are about their respective characters struggle with their desperate fear and anxiety about turning old. Both struggle with the fact that they have lost their sexuality/power. Which also reminds me-- there's a scene in the movie where our main character practically begs for sex from an italian stud. It was rather pathetic to watch. So what does this movie really say about older chicks? That they are easy lays because they're so fucking desperate? Probably. And what does that say about us? That we're all suckers for watching this overly sappy, and manipulative movie? Yeah.
So avoid at all costs.

Yes we're all probably in the matrix. No it's not a movie it's a system of databases that law inforcement has access to. It's supposed to make us more secure but a damn privacy risk is you ask me. Check out their website: matrix-at.org
