    yeah, shes pretty tiny!!! i really loved the movie penelope. i like the storyline a lot. congrats to the 2 of them. have any of you saw coraline? i just took my nieces to see it in 3d. i wasnt sure what to expect since the previews i saw were soo vague, but it was pretty interesting. im not sure yet how much i liked it, if at all. but it was fun for the kids. 🙂 (sorry, totally off topic lol)

    Obviously, he likes ’em tiny, based on how small his dog is and how tiny Christina.

    I haven’t seen ‘Coraline’…doesn’t sound interesting to me, at all.

    Well mandee, I’ll continue in the same off-topic vein…I loved Penelope as well, and am actually going to get Coraline this week, have been waiting for it to come out…

    loved Ricci in Ghost Story as well, great film

    wish them both well…

    “Ghost World”…

  8. mandee • March 20, 2009 @ 12:28 AM

    are you seeing coraline in 3d or just regular? i actually did really like it. its just really far out there and nothing of what i was expecting

  9. mandee • March 20, 2009 @ 12:29 AM

    was she in ghost world? i thought it was thora birch? lol only saw it once so maybe im confused?

  10. Jo-Anne. • March 20, 2009 @ 9:04 AM

    Thanks mandee!!! I did it again!!!
    Yes, Thora Birch, you are right. I also keep thinking it was Ricci in American Beauty (which I loved as well) and guess what – it’s Thora again!

    Did the same thing with that guy in “Into the Wild”…

    so, looks like I’m the confused one!

    lol ohh ok, no problem ! im glad we cleared that up. i havent had time to check into any of that stuff, been getting more hours recently !!! 😀 so i only have enough time to fight lol and work 😛

  12. Jo-Anne. • March 21, 2009 @ 1:23 PM

    ha ha fight and work! Love that!
    Good for you getting more hours, that’s wonderful. My 16 year old (almost 17!) daughter is getting next to no hours at Winners and it’s hurting her, mind you it’s put a real dent in her shopping so that may be a good thing!

    have a good weekend…

  13. mandee • March 21, 2009 @ 3:40 PM

    thank 🙂 i sure wish it could stop MY shopping problem, but nothing seems to break me of it lol. just got in from work, i never work early shifts, so 9am was pretty early for me to start today!!! im so sleepy lol.

  14. tributegirl • March 21, 2009 @ 4:35 PM

    Hey mandee, congrats on getting more hours! Here’s to hoping the economy turns around so everyone will have the amount of work they want!

  15. mandee • March 21, 2009 @ 7:08 PM

    thanks 🙂 i really want full time hours, but 50-60 a check is better than the 29 hours per check i used to get !!!!
