Friday Fox – Milla Jovovich

Each Friday I feature a baker’s dozen images of a 40-something lady who “gets my motor running.”

Milla Jovovich

Milla Jovovich is this week’s Over-Forty Friday Fox. My favorite movie starring Milla is the futuristic film The Fifth Element. A sci-fi epic, Milla is ideally cast as “the perfect element” who has the ability to save the world from evil. Totally awesome film for sci-fi fans! However, Milla is probably best know for starring in the Resident Evil series of films. She is a natural at slaying zombie-like creatures. The films won’t be mistaken for Citizen Kane, but they are lots of fun to watch – even moreso because Milla is super hot. Milla’s background is modeling and there’s no doubt about why. Her face is incredibly expressive and communicative. I think she could easily star in more dramatic/Oscar-bait type of films if someone would give her a chance (or if she would try them). Maybe I’m wrong, but I’d love to find out! They certainly didn’t have gorgeous women like Milla at my high school!

I’m on the road, so I apologize for the lack of posts.

The conference I’m at has weird hours for the exhibit hall. Today, it’s open from 7 to 8 am, then closed until 5pm. What the heck is that all about? We almost opted out of exhibiting because of the limited hours. Nobody wants to visit the exhibit hall at 7am! As an exhibitor, I had to be at the booth by 6:30am to get it ready for one hour of traffic. So weird! Who thought this would be a good schedule?

Of course the exhibit hall opens at 7am again tomorrow. Yes, for another 1 hour session. Tonight is the big party that runs until midnight. I wouldn’t miss the party, so tomorrow morning will be challenging!

Friday Fox – Jennifer Connelly

Each Friday I feature a baker’s dozen images of a 40-something lady who “gets my motor running.”

Jennifer Connelly

Jennifer Connelly is today’s Over-Forty Friday Fox. Jennifer has a long and varied career in Hollywood. With undeniable talent (kudos on her Oscar!) and a body that won’t quit, Jennifer has to be one of my absolute favorite actresses. While she was in many things leading up to it, she first came to my attention in the movie Career Opportunities. In it, she plays a angst-ridden teen who plans to shoplift her way to freedom from her parents. Look, who cares what the movie is about! Just go and check out what might be the best scene ever filmed, Jennifer rocking back and forth on a rocking horse. I’m sure Dermot Mulroney loathed filming that scene over and over again. I would have definitely required numerous takes just to make sure we got it right. Since then, Jennifer has done some great work, Reservation Road, Hulk, and House of Sand and Fog stand out as some of her best work. Of course, winning the Oscar for A Beautiful Mind was a huge confirmation of her amazing talent. Definitely check that one out if you haven’t already. They certainly didn’t have gorgeous women like Jennifer at my high school!

Last Knights

This past Sunday night I stayed up way too late to watch “Last Knights,” starring Clive Owen. My quick and dirty review is – don’t waste your time!

NFL Sunday Ticket Follow Up

Last week I shared my delight in experiencing the NFL Sunday Ticket for the first time. Simply put, it is THE BEST WAY to watch football.

You can imagine how excited I was to repeat the experience this past Sunday. Chips and dip were prepped and ready. I had my Dr. Pepper chilling. The media room was cleared out of all non-football fans in the house. TV was on, receiver cranked up, and I was counting down the minutes. I avoid the NFL pregame shows, so I was enjoying watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens for about the 50th time. As my clock strikes noon, I head on over to channel 703 to start my NFL day.

And there was nothing but a black screen. NOOOOOOOO!!!!! Continue reading “NFL Sunday Ticket Follow Up”

Friday Fox – Elizabeth Hurley

Each Friday I feature a baker’s dozen images of a 40-something lady who “gets my motor running.”

Elizabeth Hurley

After a brief break, the Over 40 Friday Fox is back with a bang! Today’s fox is Elizabeth Hurley, another absolute favorite of mine (who also happens to be over 50!). Back in the early 90’s I remember going to see Passenger 57 with my roommate. We loved watching senseless action movies and this one delivered. Wesley Snipes was awesome, but the person who caught our attention was Liz Hurley playing a bit part as a stewardess who is working with the bad guy. Only on screen for a few brief moments, Liz totally stood out to us. She was hot, had an amazing accent, and a huge presence on screen with such a little part. I couldn’t wait to see more of her! Unfortunately it took a long 5 years before she was prominently featured in anything I saw. Finally, in 1997 she played the role of Vanessa Kensington in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. As a sexy spy Elizabeth hit all the right buttons. She was smart, funny, and looked great in tight leather. Mike Myers did a spectacular job when picking the perfect straight person for his goofy spy. Since then, Elizabeth has been modeling, acting in various projects, and dating billionaires. I don’t blame the billionaires, if I had that kind of money I would certainly put some of it towards wooing the gorgeous Elizabeth Hurley. They certainly didn’t have gorgeous women like Elizabeth at my high school!

I updated my version of Pokémon Go yesterday and have been trying to decide which Pokémon to set as my buddy. For the uninitiated, in Pokémon Go you can pick a “buddy Pokémon” that will earn candy as you walk around. Candy is used to evolve or power up your Pokémon.

Picking the right Pokémon to have as your buddy is important. While it may only earn one candy per kilometer traveled, that one candy could make it possible to evolve or power up a Pokémon you don’t normally encounter.

So, my question to the reader is, which Pokémon should I tag as my buddy?

  • Magikarp – I currently have 299 candies, it takes 400 to evolve. It’s got a CP of 156.
  • Charmander – I have 15 candies, it takes 25 to evolve. It’s got a CP of 372.
  • Snorlax – I have 3 candies, can use them to power it up. It’s got a CP of 1,312

Which would you pick as your buddy? Maybe there is another Pokémon you’d recommend?

Drop a comment and let me know.

NFL Sunday Ticket

This past June we made the switch from the AT&T Uverse TV package to DirecTV. One of the incentives for making the switch was a free year of the NFL Sunday Ticket package. While not the main motivating factor, as a fan of Football, I was certainly intrigued. The Red Zone channel held a particular interest, over the years I’ve heard so many good things about it that I was really looking forward to my first NFL Sunday with the package.

The Office Hottie – with a twist

There’s a lady who has recently joined our team who is roughly around my age. This isn’t terribly unusual, there are lots of us mid-lifers here. What I’m enjoying most about her, besides traits such as a great personality, hard working, intelligent, and capable, is that she’s incredibly hot. She’s single (recently divorced), 41 years old, and has a wonderful sense of humor.

Look, I’m not going to cheat on my wife. I have zero illusions that this gorgeous woman would have any interest in me, nor do I have any interest in damaging my marriage. I love my wife too much to do something stupid that would hurt her by having sex with someone else. However, that being said, I have zero problem with appreciating a beautiful woman. If I have a choice, I prefer to look at and work with beautiful women every day. This new co-worker fits that bill. Her smile lights up the whole office. Having great cleavage that she shows off with low-cut tops doesn’t hurt either!

And then today I discovered something about her that changes everything.
