Val’s Voice – Dec. 19, 2006

OK, Well, I KNOW it has been awhile since I spoke with Kris, but now I am starting to wonder if she has begun a new career as a HOCKEY PLAYER for the Ottawa Senators. While watching the game the other night, they kept saying things about Kris Kelly handling the puck. What would you think? I can’t imagine that someone else would have that same name, can you? I can see her suited up and skating for all she is worth though, can’t you? Kris, don’t forget us ‘little people’ on your way to the Stanley Cup!!!heehee

Caught the movie, “Charlotte’s Web” this week and I LOVED it! (except for that one sad little part) I am thinking about getting me a pig for a pet now. Can you just imagine how Patience (my dog for those of you who haven’t had that pleasure of meeting/HAVING HER LICK YOU yet) would respond to that!? The movie is amazing in technological ways!  The animals REALLY look like they are talking, I mean…after all how can we forget about MISTER ED? (a horse is a horse of course, of course…) does that show my age??heehee He was a PIONEER in talking animals. I think my favorite was the horse in this movie, played by Robert Redford. I have to say he REALLY got into character this time, I couldn’t even recognize him!! I also enjoyed the “negative cows”, played by Reba McIntire and Kathy Bates, YES…there are quite a few stars in this movie, but you have to look really hard to see them. It’s a good thing I am here for you, once again, huh? Of course, Dakota Fanning is fabulous as always, I have to tell you I absolutely adore this little girl/woman. She is very mature for her age, if you have ever seen her on a talk show, then you know what I mean.

The Christmas Party was fairly low key this year. We had it at Ms. Brown’s, which was a very nice house and quite cozy. The gifts however,….now THAT was another story! Nothing gets much UGLIER than a ‘rousing’ game of DIRTY SANTA!! (see Johnny’s photo for special affects!)heehee It was quite pitiful, when the ‘token’ straight woman ends up with a bag full of GAY PORN for a Christmas present, dont you think? And, how many of you have given the dirty ole tennis shoes off your, ..uh…feet as a ‘special Santa Gift’? Ms. Brown felt like Cinderella as she slipped that, "off white Nike" on her foot!) and started dancing around the living room… EEEK! Everyone tried to ignore "Val’s Gift", I guess I have gotten a ‘reputation’ for giving the WORST DIRTY SANTA GIFTS…hmph..imagine that?!! This year my gift was not only functional, but funny too.  A coffee mug with a photo of Johnny, hot, sweaty, red in the face and smoking!) I am SURE they will be ‘grappling’ for my gift next year! By the way, does ANYONE need an 80s TRIVIA GAME? That was the gift I ended up with,  but hell…my 80s were like some people’s 60s, if you remember it, then you weren’t there! Right?
