    Yummy Purples; bright Purples, Pretty Purples; oh yummmy! ;)

  2. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Never seen the movie tho…

  3. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    thanks Bubbly! :)

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Great pick…I loved this movie with Robin Williams and Robert De Niro in it about the Oliver Sacks story. I’ve watched this movie about 5 times; great show! I like how you have the sleepy moon face become the bright sun face!! :-)

  5. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Nice combination of Amethyst & Chalcedony! I tried to watch this many years ago, but couldn’t manage to again. Maybe someday, but it hits a bit close to home for me.

  6. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori…thank you! and I am sorry if the movie title brought up something unpleasant.

  7. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Not so much unpleasant, but between this movie & young Zak, I am remembering my dad tonight. He had Parkinson’s. When I saw the movie it depicted much of what “could be” in his life. Thankfully, it didn’t get the chance to fully debilitate him.

    Don’t be sorry.

    I was having fun googling Scent of a Woman… & all the great lines in it! I love that one! Now I want to see it!

  8. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori…I wished you lived closer…I would loan you Scent of Woman…I could be your own personal video store! :)

  9. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    BTW – thanks for the kind words everyone, glad you like the pick :)

  10. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    I guess! :)

    I envy 1) That you have had the TIME to watch these…
    and 2) That you HAVE them!
    3) That you REMEMBER them all!

  11. Mommykat Bubbly Chick
    Mommykat Bubbly Chick says:

    Lori, So sorry about your dad.

  12. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori – thanks…movies are my escape…most of my life, my family situations have given me much cause to want to escape.

  13. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Lorrie, it’s ok, now. He did so well for so long. And our whole family is thankful that ultimately it wasn’t Parkinson’s that took him. It did contribute, but we all learned some incredible lessons in perseverance from how he dealt with it. In some ways it made him, my Mom & our family strong. Not that I’d choose that route, but we all have our difficulties, right?

  14. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Oh Susan, my turn to apologize. I didn’t mean to be flippant. I do hope things are better for you now. And that you have us to escape to when you need to!

  15. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori…no need to apologize, I didn’t mean to be downer, sometimes I feel I need to justify why I have them (old habits die hard) and YES, I do have you guys now!!!

  16. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    No worries, me either! Stuff just keeps coming out of my “mouth” tonight. We know you are more than a movie fan here! It is even harder to give an impression of yourself just chatting on the computer, and heaven knows people misjudge all the time in person.

  17. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori…well said and we are all good! :)

  18. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    :)

  19. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Susan, I have used books all my life the way it sounds like you have used movies, so I understand completely. :-) They are always there when you need to escape from whatever/whomever and they never give you any grief! They can be quite a blessing at times.

  20. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lynn…you changed your picture…I wish I could enlarge it to see you better, who is in the photo with you?

  21. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Hey Lynn! Glad you’re still up! What Susan said…

  22. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I practiced uploading a different photo today. Couldn’t find the one I wanted of just me, so I uploaded one of me and my husband, Bob. I’m on the left and he is the one on the right with the mustache in the striped shirt! LOL If I can find the other one, I’ll upload it — it’s a closer shot of me. I, too, wish we could zoom in on these photos. :-)

  23. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    The reason I disappeared for awhile was because I had to watch the season finale of “Desperate Housewives.” I did keep checking in here during commercial breaks! LOL :-)

  24. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    He-he! Can’t see the mustache! You’re miles ahead of me, I haven’t tried to load a photo. :P

  25. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    How was the season finale, did they leave you with a big ole’ cliffhanger?

  26. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Maybe we need a reality show — we could call it “Desperate Beaders” or “The Real Housewives of Lima Beads.” What do you think? Sound dramatic enough? LOL :-)

  27. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Desperate Beaders sounds good to me – LOL :)

  28. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Oh, yes, of course — last season they jumped 5 years into the future. This season, only 2 months and had a wedding. I don’t want to say too much, in case someone taped it and hasn’t watched it yet. LOL

  29. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Do Desperate Beaders bead desperately? :-)

  30. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Good one, Lynn! I’m sure I could contribute to the “scandal”. Dishes left in the sink, laundry untouched, meals hastily prepared, all to satisfy the desperate need for BEADS!!

  31. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    That’s very funny, Lori! Sounds just like my house!!! LOL

  32. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    same over here…my kiddo is lucky when she gets a meal…LOL

  33. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Is that a pix of your daughter, Susan?

  34. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Mine are learning to get their own – how sad.

  35. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    No, my pic is ME, at about 6 to 12 months :)

  36. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori – how old are your kiddos?

  37. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Lori, I seem to remember you referring to grandchildren on one of the picks. Do you also have children who live at home?

  38. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Susan, what a cute idea! I’ll bet you haven’t changed a bit. LOL

  39. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    only a little, I thought Lori had kids at home?

  40. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Nope, not a grandma, but old enough to be!

    My kids are 12 soon-to-be 13, and 7 soon-to-be 8 (or 13, if attitude counts)!

  41. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    So cute Susan! How old were you in the photo?

    Looks like it was taken in a high-chair? I don’t know why…

  42. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    between 6 & 12 months, I was standing up in my crib, my kiddo is 8 and will be 9 in September, (3rd grade)…gosh it is going be fast! :)

  43. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    OOPS — sorry, Lori! I must have mixed you up with someone else I was talking with once about our grandchildren awhile back. Do you have boys, girls, or one of each?

  44. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    that should be ‘by fast’ not ‘be fast’

  45. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    So cute! Hey, my daughter will be in 3rd grade next year too! Was yesterday I was potty training, right?

    Lynn, I have one of each, my son is the oldest. He spoiled me, being such an easy baby. Of course when there’s only one to pay attention to, it makes a difference!

  46. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Didn’t even notice! Tired fingers & tired eyes communicate well!

  47. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    So Lynn, do you have kids?

  48. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    We have one daughter, Suzanne. She is married and has 3 little girls, Jenna (3 1/2 years), Kaitlyn (1 1/2 years) and Aubrey (7 weeks).

  49. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Lucky you with all those girls to spoil! I hope you get to see them often. And your daughter must have her hands full!

  50. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    do they live close by?

  51. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    We live in Kokomo, Indiana, and they live a little over 2 hours south of us in Bloomington, where Indiana University is located, so it doesn’t take too long to get there. Suzanne works full-time as an assistant store manager and her husband, Dave, is a stay-at-home dad with his own lawn care business. She just returned to work this past Friday from her maternity leave.

  52. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    how far is Indianapolis from Kokomo?

  53. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    It takes us an hour to get to Indy.

  54. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    We’re an hour north of Indy, 1 hour east of Lafayette, 3 hours southeast from Chicago.

  55. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Thanks…there is a conference I go to every year, next year, the location is Indianapolis

  56. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    Hmm, not too close, but not too far away either. The distance has pluses & minuses, doesn’t it?

    I wish i could stay & chat more, but I’m losing ground fast. Hope you sleep well & have a great week! I’m sure I’ll see you soon :)

    Night!

  57. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Really?!?! What fun! Is it in 2009 or 2010? I mean, I know what year this is, but I didn’t know what part of the school year you meant. :-) What kind of conference?

  58. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Good night Lori, I am not too far from calling it a night as well, sleep well :)

  59. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Good night, Lori! This was fun! Talk to you soon! :-)

  60. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    May 2010…it is for NCAA rules and regulations…I employed by a local university and my work involves student-athletes.

  61. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    All right, here we go again. ANOTHER chicky rondevous (spelling, I know!) in the making. sigh :) night

  62. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    Lori – LOL! :)

  63. Dizzy Chick Lori Z
    Dizzy Chick Lori Z says:

    See ya!

  64. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Susan, it would be so much fun to get together when you are in Indy!!! Just think — we have a whole year to plan! :-)

  65. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    definitely, any good bead shops in Indy?

  66. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Lori, you are too funny! We’ll need to schedule something in Kansas! :-)

  67. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Yes, I’m sure we could make time to check them out! LOL :-)

  68. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    How long will you be in Indy?

  69. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    I would probably arrive on a Tuesday and leave the following Saturday, so that’s 4 nights.

  70. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    this year’s conference is in Anaheim and that is what I doing so I assume it will be similar next year.

  71. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    Wow — that’s great! Once you know the dates, you’ll have to let me know so I can keep the time free. We’ll work around your schedule, of course. Are you traveling with others from your school?

  72. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    well, I guess I should call it night and go to bead, it has been really nice chatting with you and Lori this evening…I will catch up with you both sometime this week :)

  73. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    it depends, I may be alone but there could be one or two others, it varies from year to year who goes.

  74. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    This has been fun, Susan! You have my gmail address if you want to get in touch with me about anything. Sleep well! :-)

  75. movie chick aka susan
    movie chick aka susan says:

    thanks…you too!!! :)
