Q Is For Quit

God save the queen. ~ The Sex Pistols
I love that song. I also love Queen Elizabeth. I have a photo of her on my office wall... no joke.
Let's quit that though to talk about something else.
Quitting.
We all do it. Somehow, someway.
I quit Brownies, Navy League and Karate.
I quit high school at 17, (pregnant of course).
Not all my quits were bad things though.... some were even better for my health.
I quit smoking almost 6 and a half years ago.
I quit taking cocaine, ecstasy, crystal meth, ketamine, heroin and many other drugs almost 14 and a half years ago.
I've quit numerous other things as well, but the gist is we're all quitters. It's just how long before we quit is the question.

What is something you have quit?

  4. I did a "quitting" post, also... but mine is quitting blogging so much! I'm not getting enough exercise, and being too sedentary! This past LONG winter did not help that at all. I've gained about 7 or 8 pounds... So, I'm taking a blogging break... Maybe not absolutely quitting, but definitely taking a break...

  8. My dog is called "Queen" in Spanish (Reina). How original I know, we didn't name her.

    I "retired" from skiing. I love semantics.

    I quit brownies too! They say kicked out, I say quit :)

    Glad that your quitting means you'll be around with us for a long time yet.

Scooby Doo: The Sword And The Scoob

AVAILABLE ON DIGITAL NOW AND DVD MARCH 23! RATED F 72 minutes AMAZON An evil sorceress transports the gang back to the age chivalrous knights, spell-casting wizards, and fire-breathing dragons. While there, Shaggy unwittingly pulls out Excalibur from a nearby stone to cut a block of cheese and now no one is sure who the rightful ruler is. The legendary wizard, Merlin, appears and explains that the throne of Camelot must be determined through TRIAL BY COMBAT. Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
