Why Celebrate?

Before I celebrate please allow me a tiny MAD moment. I waited forever for The Host to come out. I'm a big Stephanie Meyer fan and was excited the movie got made. Had to wait for May for it to reach Jamaica. I planned to see it over the weekend but that fizzled when my ride couldn't make it. So I decided on Wednesday and saw Oblivion on Tuesday May 7 as planned. But when wednesday came The Host was gone after just one week. AHHHH! So upset I missed it and worse Carib5 our largest theatre knocked it off to bring back an old 3D release. Thanks a lot. *Takes a Breath* Thanks for listening to my rant now moving on.

1. I will be a co-host for June's IWSG! Saw the invite from Alex is my inbox yesterday morning. EEK! So excited, ready to help Ninja Captain. *Salutes* *Then gigglies*

2. I saw Oblivion on Tuesday and it rocked!!!! So glad I went to see it as I knew it would be gone on Wednesday and it was.

3. I took my time posting this week and it did me good to get some rest.

4. Mother's Day, we wouldn't exist without these wonderful women.

Enjoy your weekend everybody.


  1. Sorry you missed the movie! One week wasn't very long.
    Thanks again for helping with the IWSG next month!

  2. Rest is good. I did the same. Back to my "normal" three times a week schedule...feels saner ;-)
    I'm sorry your movies disappeared so fast! I'm ambivalent about Oblivion - not a Tom Cruise fan anymore. Or, I could be completely wrong and that's not his movie...either way, we end up waiting for the DVD. Going to movies is way too expensive.

  3. It's important to always take that time to rest. Even the Lord rested on that seventh day. I have to remind myself of that from time to time...

    I loved reading The Host. Didn't get to see the movie yet but I am looking forward to it. Sorry you missed it.

    Have a great weekend Sheena!

  4. Ugh, that really sucks...but glad to hear Oblivion was good. That's something, right? :)

    Have a great weekend and get some more rest! :)

  5. I'm sorry, hope you have another chance. Being next to Alex is very interesting!

  6. Sorry you missed the movie! I haven't seen it either, so I don't know if it was any good or not.
    Have a great weekend! And that's pretty cool you'll be cohosting for IWSG! The IWSG is so awesome!

  7. That's a shame you missed The Host. But glad you got to enjoy Oblivion at least. Congrats on hosting the IWSG, I know you will have a lot of fun. :)

  8. Sorry you missed "The Host." But if the box office is any indication, you may have escaped a real stinker. It'll be out on dvd soon anyway.

  9. Have fun on the weekend! As we say, every disappointment is for good and at least you saw something else you enjoyed.

  10. I'm not interested in The Host; but I saw Oblivion and just fell in love with it. And I'm not normally a Happily Ever After (HEA) person.

    Yay for being IWSG co-host.

    Hope you have a great weekend, and get to see The Host soon.


  11. Congrats on your IWSG hosting gig!
    A little R&R is good for the soul... and sorely needed after the craziness of the AtoZ.
    Have a great weekend Sheena-kay!

  12. Congrats on the IWSG gig! Glad Oblivion was good.

  13. Yes, when a person is irreplaceable in the world that is a mother's day worth celebrating!

  14. Enjoy the co-hosting!

    It's really annoying when movies go out too early, isn't it? Especially ones you really want to see!

  15. How terrible! I read the book, but don't know if I'll see the movie. Hopefully they'll bring it back your way after the 3D one is done.

    I saw that you're helping with IWSG. That's great. I do love your comments. Writer’s Mark

  16. Congrats on the IWSG invite. I will make sure not to go to Jamaica to go see movies.

  17. Sheena-Kay, there is a little something for you to collect at my site. I hope it gives you a buzz!

  18. Sorry to hear you missed the movie. Hopefully you'll get another chance soon, and it will move to the bottom half of the post. :)

  19. what a bummer! at least oblivion was great!
    and yay for hosting iwsg =)
