Some material in this post may not be suitable for young children
A reader did suggest a hunk of the month but since April was my birthday month and it was horrible. I decided I would do one of my all time hunks. Next month, I will do the reader hunk. Another reason I did not do him was because I don’t know anything about him and haven’t had any time to research him.
Now, maybe five years ago or more I would have just grossed out to Mr. Ferrell but he has made a major change in becoming a father, laying low in the press and no scandals. I think his management company threatened to fire him if he did not clean up his act. Well he has and for the better. This is the ultimate bad boy. He is the guy that picks you up on his bike and takes you right on his bike. I need my back fixed! So, that is my fantasy with Colin. He has swagger but he is no longer the drunkened idiot he used to be. Plus I have heard really fills his Calvins. I am sure if you search the web you can find some frontal on this man.
So, now if you interview Colin you are going to get a well groomed quite intelligent man. To me the most attractive thing about a man is his voice and his mind. I know I talk about other things but I have dated really good looking guys that are just dumb as a rock. After I graduated I made it a point to only date college graduates so at that time I did think Colin was a fool but he has done a 180 and for these reasons. I chose Colin Ferrel for the hunk of the month.
If you want someone as your hunk of the month email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and on the subject line just put hunk. This year I want your hunks on this blog.

Sorry it has been so long since I have done a post but it seems I am on a merry-go-round and it just won't stop. It turns out that my second double surgery was not a success. Not enough to get me back to my regular self. I still have a nerve pinched and have incredible pain. The good thing is that Norco which is an addictive opiate really doesn't work so I don't take it as prescribed. I did develop a nasty opiate addiction after a long illness several years ago. I had to go through medical detox. I don't want that again. So, that is what happened in March and April. I had to get new MRI's, ex-rays, and nerve conduction studies. So I want to reach out to you and ask if anyone knows someone who has had this problem. My symptoms pretty much remain the same the only thing that was healed was the rubber band sensation and the rocks in the bottom of my feet however; the rocks have turned to cotton but still it hurts. I am taking it in stride and trying not to get depressed but I did find that for me Neurontin a drug that is sometimes used as a psychotropic does elevate my mood keeping my depression at bay but very sleepy. Now, that's not all I actually had two cancer scares. In my MRI they found a very large cyst on my only ovary. I thought this is great. I had a hysterectomy in 1999. I did it mainly so I would not get cancer there and also because I had fibroids or very heavy periods. My wonderful gyno decided it would be good to leave an ovary in so I would not have to take hormones. What a nice guy. So, now I have this mass on my ovary. I have to have it checked great no cancer it's just the worse thing menopause. I can't even tell if I have any symptoms. The only thing was just some night sweats. Nothing else. So, I am not going to take any hormones. Then I go get a mammogram and the letter is very confusing. It sounds like they were not able to get good pictures. Not my fault but it says they I need to call my gyno. Luckily my gyno says everything is fine. So, that is what has been going on. I hope everyone is well. I have only one post for tonight but a compare and contrast post for later in the week.
Ciao for now,

So, this past weekend I went to see 50 Shades of Grey. Holy cow. I went very little information and I did not read the book but so that really makes me a better person to review this movie.
Ok, where do I start?
First and foremost the actor they chose was just not hot enough for me. I was so sad when I heard Charlie Hunnam had dropped out. I read an article that said he just was exhausted doing “Sons” and filming “50”. So, I know they considered Alexander Skarsguaard but for some reason that never came to fruition. So, I know some people do think this guy Jamie Dornan is cute but he is not manly he is boyish cute. There was nothing special about his look. I didn’t think he was really HOT!
Next we have Dakota Johnson. Daughter to Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, who in their time were the most sexually promiscuous people in Hollywood. Can I say they pretty much were sluts. Now unfortunately sometimes the character of the parents rubs off on the children. So, for this big movie you get their daughter to play a virgin. She gave in so fast to sex that’s not really that normal for someone who has held their virginity that long. The actress they chose again, we have a case of bad casting. By the way Dakota you want to see a hot sex scene watch the episode of Sons where Tara grabs Jax and rips his shirt open and takes him on the bathroom counter knowing that her rival was come in and see them. No nudity but that was hot!
The third problem was the actors themselves had no chemistry. It is widely reported that Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan actually hated each other, so in that climate it is hard to create chemistry unless you have seasoned actors which in this case both are very new to acting. Kate Winslet and Leo DeCaprio, neither one gorgeous people, but they had chemistry and that is why we fell for the love story. We did not have any chemistry between these two actors. Plus I heard Dakota Johnson making fun of Charlie Hunnam for dropping out saying that I bet he didn't know the movie would be such a smash. Ok, people were curious I am glad I only paid $6.00 to see the show. Nobody mocks my Charlie Hunnam. You might have sold a lot of tickets but your reviews are just as bad as the one I am giving you.
Now, the biggest problem with this movie is the content. I took a year of male/female psychology and we ran the gambit of everything one of those being sexually deviant behavior. Now, what this really was about was different kinds of sex, who engages in it and why but I think the main thing we got from this is when you have two consenting adults wanting to explore their sexuality it is not deviant as long as both parties are on board. So, we had this but here’s the problem Christian Grey is not going to be a man wants to engage in this type of sex play most really wealthy men like Grey prefer a submissive role. There is a reason for this it is because being so wealthy, heading large corporations, making million dollar decisions want to be in a submissive role. It kind of neutralizes their life. They often hire Dominatrix's. They might even find a woman who is willing to engage in sex where he is told what to do. If he does something wrong there will usually be a punishment. These mega millionaires don’t make mistakes that his why they are mega millionaires.
There were so many things wrong. Grey seemed like a puppy dog following Ana around. He did not look like he was in charge. She cried. He consoled her. She met his mother right away. It was stupid. I remember Dr. Drew who does a lot of work with addictions including sexual said he wished he could have the four hours he spent reading the book back. I guess I am done with 50. I think I am going to watch something more relevant like Birdman next. Of course there is always 9 1/2 weeks that does what 50 shades failed to do and that was to make couples takes sex out of the bedroom every once in a while. Make it fun.

So, I guess you get it. I am frustrated that my numbers are not high but I had a nurse and my neice ask why wasn't I doing the blog. I said it was the surgery and in a big part it is but I really miss doing it. I Judy need to figure a middle ground. I might be able to reach that middle ground. My biggest thing is really just editing. I hate doing it so maybe I can do just two pictures. I guess what I am saying is that yes, numbers matter and two that I am going to give this blog another chance.

I did have a minor setback yesterday. I got extremely dehydrated and it changed my pain level. I thought something happened, so I went to the hospital. I went in an ambulance because this bypasses the waiting room but every room was taken, it was freezing in the waiting room and my back was killing me. The ambulance drivers had taken my stats and said I was more than likely just dehydrated so i just left I was really more scared to get sick so I left. My doctor called today. I will see him Monday. I got a new script because I was seriously low. I had been trying to get a hold of him to no avail but I posted a bad review on Facebook an within 10 minutes got a call. Now, if that could just happen on my blog I would be a happy woman.
I will be starting a series called the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2014. It will be about everything a week long series and not just about nail polish.

I am just updating on what has been going on and what the future of my blog is. First I want to say how much I miss doing this blog. It was such a big part of my life having to slowly give up has been hard. Some of you may be saying? Why doesn't she just quit? Two reasons the first is I am not ready to let go and two I don't feel I have been successful. I haven't done enough to make the blog successful and for me that is just not okay. I can do better to get more exposure. So, what I am going to do is post new collections. I am going to do a favorites post and instead of Hall Pass I am going to change it to Hunk of the Month. My girlfriend is helping me for November and I have December's already done. During the month of December I am going to put up a poll to see who wins for the year. Now, January, I am going to reach out to someone to actually pick and do the post. There is a reason for this.
Here comes some bad news, I just found out I am going to need my back surgery redone there are two major places that are giving me problems. Right now, my pain level will reach a 10 without medication. They will be putting pins and rods on my back because they will be completely removing a disk. I will have one procedure that will be done through the back and then get flipped over and have the other procedure done through my abdomen. It sounds harsh and it will be. I have a lot of confidence in this surgeon. I could have one procedure done now and another one in six months. Sorry, life is too short. I pretty much bed bound. I can barely sit and I want my life back. My doctor let me make the choice about having both procedures done at the same time and that was my choice. After getting out of the hospital, will be going to a rehab hospital. This too is my choice. I know if I come home I will be alone and that's not anybody's fault. My husband needs to keep working and so does everybody else. This also gives me the full time attention of nursing staff who can call my doctor if my pain gets out of control. My husband will be there all the time he is not working. So, that's cool and there will be other people there for me to shoot the shit with. I just staying positive and hoping to get my life back.
In the meantime, you can follow me on Instagram because I still buy new polish and stamping plates and am taking pictures of my manicures. Right now I am wearing those gorgeous color from Colors by Llarowe called I'll Be Sea-ing You. It is gorgeous. I will be posting two weeks of manicures on Instagram. I can't guarantee my Pinterest page will be up to date because it is under construction. I also found some new stamping polish, it's new to me, but I have heard from other bloggers that it the best. I already purchased some. The name of the company is Mundo de Unas. Their icon is in the right column of the blog. Also, if you have been wanting to score a Nars Audaciuos Lipstick, I just bought 2 from an eBay store called Boxed Beauty. I got Annabella and Sylvia. Annabella was $16.99. Sylvia a limited edition was $22.99. Both are authentic so that is just a little tidbit I wanted to share. Plus this month Sephora has 20% off everything November 6 - 12. Not sure on the end date but to is a great time to purchase items you need or stock up on your must haves.

Now, I have no idea what twenty pounds of middle means but to me right now it means a really nice glitter topper. This is a really great glitter topper from Whimsical Ideas by Pam. The thing I love about this polish is that you can wear it matte or shiny and it literally goes with every color. It can even be transformed if you want to wear it on a holographic polish you can top with a polish like Cult Nails Mayhem and it will pick up a holographic look. You could even change the color if you used one of those new OPI translucent. I love this glitter topper. I have worn it several times with people always asking, ”Where did you get that polish. I have never seen anything like that before.” I always love to give information to people where I get my indies. I feel like a walking advertisement. There are several shapes in this glitter including little hearts. The only thing I don’t see this glitter being to great for might be a jelly sandwich. But I don’t know I haven’t tried so I am not going to totally ruling it out until I try it and as soon as I find it works. You, readers will be the first to know. So, for this mani I used just a regular black but then used an OPI Solitaire on my accent finger. There was no recycling this manicure so it just came off after four days. But it sure was pretty.
