Non-Stop...

On Monday night I had the opportunity to see an advance screening of Universal Pictures' news action thriller Non-Stop (2014) staring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore.
Global action star Liam Neeson stars in Non-Stop, a suspense thriller played out at 40,000 feet in the air. During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the airline to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. The film reunites Neeson with Unknown director Jaume Collet-Serra & producer Joel Silver & co-stars Golden Globe Award winner Julianne Moore. 

Since I've posted the actual trailer several times, here is the LEGO verson of the trailer...

Going into seeing Non-Stop (2014) my guest, my sister's boyfriend Matt, kept cracking jokes about how we were going to see Taken 3: On A Plane and by the time we walked out of the theater he was still making those jokes but in between talking with me about how awesome Non-Stop (2014) was -- True story, I've never actually seen any of the movies in the Taken (2008) franchise. But I digress...

Non-Stop (2014) was fucking awesome -- Very professional review huh?

I honestly loved all 106 minutes of this movie.

I loved Liam's performance. I loved the twists and turns of the plot. I loved the visuals. Etc...

I walked out of the theater after seeing it and I was so happy with everything about it.

Even the winners of my Non-Stop NYC Advance Screening Giveaway loved the film. I got several e-mails from winners telling me how awesome they thought the movie was and thanking me for giving them the opportunity to see it before it was released in theaters -- Again, you're welcome! 

So yeah, Non-Stop (2014) is a must see in my humble opinion.
Lemme know if you are planning on going see it or if you already have! I'd love to know what you thought of it.

Eleven Years...

I can't believe that as of today Justin and I have been dating for eleven years. It doesn't feel like we just started dating yesterday but if definitely doesn't feel like eleven years. It's just crazy in this awesome way.
But yeah, happy anniversary to us! Lets hope he puts a ring on it this year...

All Gold Everything...

As of late I've been really digging the whole painted toys thing that you see all over Pinterest. So I decided to get my craft on and paint some dollar store/thrifted plastic animal toys. Here are the results...
As you can tell, I hand painted all of these. If you feel like messing around and making your own I'd totally recommend using spray paint because you have to put multiple coats on with the acrylic paint.

Sticky Note Art...

Last month I decided to start a new project with my Drawing Club kids, sticky note art (I'm not gonna lie, I ran out of drawing paper and noticed we had tons of sticky notes in the library supply closet). And since I draw with the kids every time I have Drawing Club I have a bunch that I did and I thought that I'd share my sticky note art with all of you.

So I give you some of my sticky note art...
What should I draw next?

Inappropriate Phone Calls...

Just like in a restaurant or coffee shop, we have regulars here at the library. One family in particular is here all the time. The mother brings her teenage daughter, tween son and younger daughter on a regular basis for books and crafts. On top of that the older kids volunteer to sign kids up for our reading clubs, as well as to read to little kids. So they are here a lot. Like, they are here so much the mother and I are on a first name basis and she stands by the reference desk while her kids are looking for library materials to chat with me.

Well, they haven't been in in a while because their mother slipped on a patch of black ice and has been suffering from a concussion -- Which I know because the father, whom I had never met before the other day, had brought the two older children in for books and told me.

Since their mother is hurt and they aren't able to get here, the older kids didn't sign up to be reading club volunteers. Which is totally understandable. But "Julia" who didn't know about their mother just called their house to inquire as to why they didn't sign up to be volunteers because she had sent a flier to their home about it and they never responded.

I almost died when I heard her on the phone. Yeah, she didn't know that the woman was injured but still, what in her mind gave her the right to call this family's home to inquire as to why the kids didn't sign up to be reading club volunteers?!!?!! There are hundreds of thousands of reasons as to why someone doesn't want to volunteer from an illness to just not wanting to do it anymore. I am so annoyed and embarrassed for the library that she did this.

Stuck In My Head: Talk Dirty...

I don't know why, but I'm loving Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" featuring 2 Chainz. It falls under that so ridiculous I love it category like "Ricky Ricardo" by Kaptn.
