Snow White and The Huntsman

I went to a premier screening of Snow White and the Huntsman tonight, that sounds fancy but it's not really, we just got given tickets through work and my bosses handed them out to senior staff. Score! I was looking forward to it's release because it looked pretty awesome in the previews and I hoped that it would live up to the hype. Well, I wouldn't say that I loved it but it was ok. I probably wouldn't pay to go see it at the cinemas again but I wouldn't object to watching it on DVD when it's released.

I guess you could say that what I am about to talk about contains spoilers but's the story of Snow White doesn't everyone know how that ends? Anyway here are my thoughts, I guess don't read it if you don't want to know vaguely what happens...

  • I find it hard to believe that it took like 10 years for her to look outside her window and find that nail.
  • The evil queen has the shittest guards 
  • Kristen Stewart is a better actress when she is being English.
  • Chris Hemsworth is a total babe
  • Artax no! 
  • The bog of eternal stench
  • Oh god please don't be a stupid love triangle 
  • Nothing happens 
  • Oh look the dwarves
  • Holy hell I want one of those little imp things as a pet. ADORABLE. 
  • Oh look Narnia with a stag instead of a lion
  • Nothing happens. 
  • This movie just keeps going doesn't it?
  • Heimlich maneuver guys come on! 
  • Obviously Thor needs to kiss her back off William
  • Hey when did she learnt to fight?
  • The evil queens guards are still pretty shit
  • Why didn't she just use those creepy glass shattery guards all along they are brutal
  • Evil queen is surprisingly easy and not very exciting to kill
  • Thank you for not having a Hollywood ending THANK YOU.
This will all make more sense A: when you watch the movie and B: if you got the references I made.

Are you going to go see Snow White and the Huntsman?

Gardens do not like storms

Well, I live in the South West of Western Australia and we have been having some pretty hideous weather lately, last Sunday in particular we had a storm hit us with winds that were a 'once in a decade' event. Needless to say, our plants that were so happy and thriving, did not appreciate it. Neither did our vege garden gate. Someone of course took advantage of the broken gate, Roxy, took the opportunity to dig a hole in the middle of the garden and then take a big shit in it. Sigh. I know I know, she was just scared because storms are scary and blah blah blah I get it I get it she's just a puppy ok. It's still highly annoying. 

I wasn't sure the garden would survive the onslaught and have been to upset about it to post pictures but it now seems that those suckers are fighters. The worst hit were the tomato plants, the ones I transplanted into the pot are basically destroyed and I think a few of the weaker ones in the garden aren't going to make it either but it looks like my two strongest plants are going to pull through. It was seriously touch and go for a while, the weather has not been friendly to it but we scored a couple days of sunshine and I think it was enough to push them just over the line. As for the plants Roxy dug up, she narrowly missed all of the carrots but took out half of the Silverbeet. The mesculin I had only just planted looks like it half survived and everything else was fine. So all in all, we avoided total garden disaster!

Here are a few pics of the house and some of the other damage the storm did around town. We had no power for 24 hours after the storm. A few friends from work were without power for days. Overall Western Power and the SES did a pretty amazing job of getting most people back online or at least safe in their houses really quickly. Snaps for those guys hooray!!

The vege garden gate you can see the bamboo stakes for the tomato on a bad angle :( 

Only lost one branch from our two massive trees. Very lucky.

Roxy's kennel got flipped over, she doesn't use it luckily so she wasn't in it at the time

Power poles are not supposed to look like that. I had to drive under it. EXTREMELY SCARY 

Couple of knocked over trees

More broken power poles, the power pole connected to the lines you can see nearing the floor snapped in half, I think a tree may have fallen on them. I obviously didn't go in for a closer look.

Do not try this at home, please.
Tonight there were only three of us, plus Tracey our amazing instructor, at Polercise and somehow the conversation got onto hoops and I asked Trace if she could give us a little demo and that turned into Tracey teaching Billie, Larissa and I a few moves. Holy hell it was fun! And hard! I feel now the way I did after my first pole class, so sore! Tomorrow and Saturday are bound to be a struggle for my arms but now I have a new little obsession.

Oh and just because I havent posted Polercise pics in a while here is a few more!

Extended Bow and Arrow

Love the pole! Love the hoops! Love Caz xoxo xxxx
