Forbidden Fruit
I'M ALIVE!! I'm still alive!! I made it thru the night!! yahoooo!!!

But on the other hand, the hubby called me today and said he has to stay in Ft. Worth until Friday, so I'm stuck here again, waiting for the ghost to appear. Yippee Ki Yay.

As revenge, I am doing something I have been *FORBIDDEN* to do. (Heh. Freak Magnet & Stewie know where this is going!!)

I'm watching Brokeback Mountain. I'M BEING BAAAAAD!!!

You see, my husband has decided that while he doesn't "mind" the gay person's lifestyle, he certainly doesn't want to pay money to advocate it. (?????!!!!) Yeah, I don't get it either, but a while back, he declared that movie OFF LIMITS, and FORBADE me to watch it. I humored him. I mean - c'mon. He's gotta have a pair of pants to wear around here every now and then. And it's not like I was absolutely DYING to see the movie anyway, even if it does have Heath Ledger in it. So I let him tell me that.

But now he's not here, and I'm WATCHING IT!! SO HAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and just BTW - that frickin' possum left a turd in my garage. I'm leaving that for the hubs to pick up as well. I ain't touchin' it.

    Brokeback was a good movie. I, too, watched it by myself. The hubbs refused.

    We've been forbidden to see it sister Tiffie and I keep going for it but never rent it, let us know how it is!

    You were all forbidden to watch the film?!?

    I can just imagine what would happen if I said to my wife... "No way sweet pea are you watching that film"

    In a very lady like manner should would probably reply "bollocks" and watch it twice to teach me a lesson....

    Am I under the thumb? I like to think not, but I'm damn sure am skilfully manipulated by her.

    Tammy - It WAS good!! It was different than I expected it to be though. And your husband was refusing to see it too? What IS it with these Texas men?

    Vety - Hey!! Aren't you guys in Houston? I swear to God. It's Texas Men and their beloved idea of the cowboy....

    AFC - ahhhh.... don't forget - I said "I humored him". HAHAHHAAA!! It's one of those sneaky things us southern women do that make our men think they're in charge. But the only funny thing is my husband generally NEVER EVER EVER tells me what to do. I thought this whole Brokeback edict was hilarious because it was like he thought he was going to have to fight me about it, and I didn't. However, I will tell him that I thought it was an EXCELLENT movie, and he should really watch it.

    stupid blogger won't let me comment.

    You're so right about Southern Women. You see, she's from Surrey ann I'm from Derbyshire. So she's about 200 miles futher south than me (which is quite a long way in England).

    I can see the way her mum manipulates her dad so he believes he's charge. I also see the way her sister works her husband so I can only assume the same is happening to me but I just can't see it.

    Perhaps I should start my own blog...'Adam the Manipulted' The story of a blog who thinks he's in charge....

    The whole forbid thing cracks me up. If my guy made such a grand announcment,he could bet his last nickle I'd be out doin' it, lol! I don't listen very well! :):)

    Let us know how it is.

    What is up with (some) straight guys and their boy on boy homophobia? I've met lots of men like that and most of them then add "But I don't have a problem with lesbians" bet ya don't buddy.....but you're still not invited to the party.;)

    A love story is a love story in my book.

    Sweetheart, I think it's time you and I made a Brokeback Mountain of our own.

  • At Friday, August 04, 2006 10:21:00 AM, Blogger no patience for bullshit

    I loved the movie! Thought it was great acting with not a lot spoken. My hubby didn't want to see it either. I actually let MY gay friend take me to the movies to see it!

  • At Friday, August 04, 2006 2:50:00 PM, Anonymous Aunt Tiffie

    I'm Vety's sister!! We have been sooooooo curious!!!! We don't have the guts to bring it home to my brother-in-law!!

  • At Friday, August 04, 2006 5:41:00 PM, Blogger Norman

    Snooze - Ya!! I'm all about rebellion!

    AFC - us southern women are pros at manipulation!!

    momyblogr - i do believe i laughed at him when he forbade me...but still I wasn't really hot to see the movie (other than Heath)

    Pack of 2 - I don't know!! They're so funny that way. And they also have FANTASYS about women on women, but oh NO about men. Big babies. LOL!

    FM - BWAAAAHAHHAAHA!! You are SO making everyone wonder!

    No patience - I thought it was really good myself.. It wasn't what I expected, but it was still pretty good!

    Aunt Tiffie - Just go do it!! It was good!

    I only wonder when you're going to come to your senses and want to git with me.

    I didn't forbid my wife to see it, but she--like me--doesn't seem to have an interest in seeing fudgepacking cowboys. Go figure.

    Norm....I think I smell a narrow minded homophobe on your blog.....and it doesn't smell good(see above comment for explanation)



  • At Saturday, August 05, 2006 10:33:00 PM, Blogger mish

    nice of you to take the forbidding so easy; i would have flipped a lid. But seriously - Heath? Jake is sooo much hotter.

  • At Sunday, August 06, 2006 12:50:00 AM, Blogger Aric Blue

    What? I thought "fudgepacking cowboys" was the current politically correct term. Damn! I can never keep that stuff straight.

    I'm still calling the chinks 'Orientals'.

  • At Sunday, August 06, 2006 8:22:00 AM, Blogger Norman

    ARIC - I'M GONNA START CALLING YOU ARCHIE BUNKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU NEED SENSITIVITY TRAINING!! Did I ever tell you I'm a half hispanic, half african-american, half asian, full-blooded american?? uh-huh... i am. really. (**thppptttt)

    angie - He likes to get hackles up!! You should hear his supposed viewpoints on child rearing!! I think he says stuff just to get reactions, but at home, he's probably a real teddybear to his wifeypoo!!

    Mish - Hi! Nope, I'll stick with Heath. I think Jake is cute, but to me, Heath is my lil' slice of hotness!

    Aric - I'll tell you what... you need a spanking!!

  • At Tuesday, August 08, 2006 2:37:00 AM, Blogger Aric Blue

    Wow Norman, I got LOTS of great nicknames for you then. I can really run the racist gamut all over your ass!

    And a spanking's not going to do it. I think I need the full treatment, mistress Norman.

    i feel the same way that your hubby does - except my peeve is with branjolina. i refused to go see or rent Mr. & Mrs. Smith. ...but now that it's on HBO, i might watch it.

    p.s. i copied your picture of frankenfurter and posted just the legs on my blog. i wanna see if the guys think the gams are hot or not.
