Happy 2009! Yes Man Movie Review

Doesn't it feel funny to begin a new year already? I just got used to writing 2008.

When I first began blogging in June, I thought that no one would ever want to visit. The first comment I got surprised me to no end! Now, I realize that there are a bunch of people in Blogland just waiting for a friend. I sure wanted more friends. I feel as if I have so many more friends than before Blogging days. So, my friends, I wish for you and yours a happy, healthy 2009.

Several days ago, two of my granddaughters took me to the movies, and we saw Yes Man with Jim Carrey. It's the story of an unhappy man who is talked into attending a seminar where he is convinced--by the guy on the right--to always say "yes."


It's a typical Jim Carrey film. It gave me a laugh or two. There is the expected but totally unnecessary profanity. I enjoyed it mostly because of the time with my sweet granddaughters. If you're a Jim Carrey fan, go see it.

Thanks for the review, I'm not to much of a Carey fan, although I laughed till I cried watching Liar Liar...I 'm so happy I got to call you my friend in 2008 and I'm looking forward to being your friend in 2009.

Hugs,
Chris

I haven't been to the movie theater is years and years. I'll probably see this when it comes on TV. I do like Jim Carey.

Sally, one of the pleasures of blogging has been to meet you! I just wish we were closer in distance, but if I ever get down "south," I want to take you to lunch so we can sit, eat, laugh, and be merry!

XO,

Sheila :-)

It's hard for me to believe that you just started blogging in June. I still keep looking back to see if I read that right. Your blog is so neat and professional (whatever that means)and good! Thanks for writing.

Well, Sally, you certainly have made a lot of friends. You are just a friendly, sweet, entertaining person, and I'm glad we have become friends. I think I'll pass on that movie though. Happy 2009 to you and your family ~

I long for the movies of the good old days when people didn't think they had to use bad language and fall into bed after knowing each other for a few minutes. I guess those days are gone for good. (sigh).
I'm very glad you started blogging and I'm glad I did too. I'm like you. I had no idea there were so many friends out there just waiting to be found.
Have a wonderful year.
