It's time for the weekly instalment of Celebrate The Small Things, hosted by Viklit over at Scribblings Of An Aspiring Author.
The aim of this bloghop is simple: each Friday we celebrate a small thing from that week. It can be the sun coming out, the cup of tea just when you needed it, your child ate some greens, you finally took that rubbish to the dump, or that you finished a chapter of writing which was difficult.Whatever you like! Sign up on the linky, post a celebration, and GO CELEBRATE with other participants who have signed up. See here for more info.
This week I'm celebrating the following:
~I completed 2 books by blogger buddies: a dystopian novella/novelette and an anthology of stories and I posted reviews on Goodreads
~My junior choir (grade 1-3) did so well with their Mother's Day song at the Monday morning assembly… do you remember M is for the million things she gave me… that's what they sang…
~I went for a snazzy short hair-cut, complete with short fringe (I last had a fringe when I was about 12 or 13 years old… that's ages ago)
~It felt so good slotting an envelope through the opening into the post box, when I posted a handwritten card…
~My Amazon shopping spree with the $75 gift voucher I won in April, during an A to Z challenge competition…
~INTERNATIONAL BE POSITIVE DAY… as voted by some blogger buddies… want to know more? Go HERE
So what are you celebrating? Please share with us… or sign up for this bloghop!

THE MOVIE REMAKE BLOGFEST
FAME 1980 vs. 2009?
The remake was a disappointment!
It was not as gritty or realsitic as the original.
Nobody dancing on a car to the theme song??? That's not on! Unbelievable… that scene is the "essence" of Fame…
What happened to the leg warmers? I want leg warmers! Give me more leg warmers!!
The absence of that bittersweet feeling during the graduation scene??? *shakes head in disbelief* Give me "body electric"…
I think that I must have been traumatized by the remake, and that's why I can't remember (or don't want to) any other details… rather leave me with the original version stuck in my memory… in this case, ignorance is bliss!
ADDED BONUS – I Will Always Love You has to be amongst one of the best song remakes – original by Dolly Parton and revamped by Whitney Houston.
And now I'm off on a blog-hopping spree! Have a great week-end!
