Does this short scene from a screenplay sound good?

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

Charles and his young nephew, Timothy, are sitting in their living room.

CHALRES
So where do you want to go for your eighth birthday, Timothy?

TIMOTHY
I was thinking about the Olive Garden.

CHARLES
No, not the Olive Garden! I hate that place! With all their overpriced food, their fake décor, their transvestite waitresses and three pronged forks! You know why that place is so expensive? It’s because they have a monopoly on the Italian restaurant market! If you want Italian food, you have to go to the Olive Garden! There are no other options!

TIMOTHY
Yes there are!

CHARLES
And one more thing-

TIMOTHY
OK, OK, we won’t go to the Olive Garden! Jesus Christ!

    wholesale sites to retailers only?

    Thursday, April 7th, 2011

    I just started a store and would like to add some wholesale items to it, I want to shop on sites that do not sell to the general public. I am having a hard time finding them. I am in home furnishings, decor and garden. I refinish old pieces that I find and have a lot of antique hookups but wanted to add some new stuff as well. Any ideas?

        Parents are selling their house but refuse to make it look attractive?

        Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

        My parents have just put the house on the market. I’ve been spending at least 5 hours a day slaving in the garden de-weeding, cutting back the forest of trees and foliage and cleaning and de-cluttering the house.

        Now, they are really angry at me because I mentioned that the paint on the windows outside is terrible and the wallpaper inside is falling down in some places. I don’t know whether I’m just being paranoid, but I think especcially in the hallway where people first enter it is really important that the decor is good. It wouldnt be that expensive to strip and paint the hall and paint the windows frames outside but my parents get really angry at me even suggesting it. My mum also refuses to move any furniture round to make the rooms look spacious because she doesn’t want to be uncomfortable.

        It’s really annoying me, because I know with only a tiny bit of effort the house could look great and fresh. But my parents just can’t seem to be bothered. My mum sees it as some huge stressful mission, when to me it’s not. I am perfectly happy to do all of it myself.

        Maybe if it doesn’t sell quickly they will think about it. I hope it does!!! Do you think it matters if the house looks a bit shabby? The house is generally tidy and clutter free but looking really tired.
        The problem is they do REALLY want to sell quickly…man I wish they could go away and I secretly do it. It’s not possible though lol

          Preschool "Pond" Program Ideas?

          Friday, April 1st, 2011

          I am racking my brain trying to come up with some really great ideas for our preschool "End of the Year" Program… We don’t call it a "graduation" with caps or gowns or anything like that…We focus on how much they’ve learned through the year.

          We do 3 "programs" a year: Fall, Christmas and End of the Year.

          2 Years ago we did "Look How We’ve Grown" and did a whole "Garden"/Flower theme- it was SO cute- We acted out Eric Carle’s "The Very Hungry Caterpillar", did 20 little ladybugs (20 kids), etc. Our backdrop was oversized flowers, so it looked like the kids were actually "in" the garden.

          Last year we did an amazing "Big Blue Ocean" and acted out "A House for Hermit Crab" and sang "Down by the ocean" and even did a black-light song! It was awesome and I’m sort of afraid we can’t top it! LOL

          *We always focus on "growing up and moving on", etc. And we always do a little 5-10 mins of "Show Off" time for each class,

          This year we want our theme to be "The Pond" with ducks, turtles and frogs…We plan on doing "lily pad" invitations and outfitting our stage area with blue fabric for water and cattails, etc. However, so far we are STUCK on actual program ideas!!

          We usually make a pretty big deal about it, so we are looking for something a little more involved than reciting "5 little speckled frogs" or changing the words to "London Bridges" or little things like that, like we might do in our classrooms…

          Any ideas for songs, Books, skits, special decor?????

          Thanks in advance!
          Thanks for the ideas—we will be doing a "pond" theme as well as a "Way things grow" theme that I do annually and I will save a lot of the artwork and projects from that for our open house portion of the night.

          A lot of your ideas sounds like SO much fun, but we are not allowed to have animals in our class 🙁

            What do you think of this color scheme/decor for my wedding reception?

            Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

            Hi!

            We have been lucky enough that my future FIL is letting us use this great old pavilion he restored. It has wood beams, is huge and is all french doors that can all open so rain or shine we have an event space! The pavilion is next to a natural pond and gardens.

            Our colors are baby pink, cranberry red and tones of pink that fall between.

            We want a formal wedding reception here that also helps bring out the natural beauty of the place. So far we are going to have long tables (about 20ft long) in rows. My future MIL already has white table skirts for these but we were thinking Mauve table cloth to have custom made.
            This is the fabric: http://www.customlinen.com/Step2_Linens.cfm?cut=Tablecloth&id=1
            And as a ‘table runner’ just doing 8′ wide strips of mirror running the whole length of our tables. On these we will have lots of candles and short flower arrangements.

            We know we want to put a lot of emphasis on candlelight. The pavilion has 6 large chandelierss with adjustable light, but we want most of theambientt light to come from candles. We were thinking LED candles on the wooden rafters, but not sure. Every major post around thepavilion has a wall scone candle holder already and we have numerous candle lanterns to light the path ways.

            How does all this sound?

              What are some outdoor wedding venues in Delaware (or surrounding areas)?

              Sunday, March 27th, 2011

              I’m looking for places in Delaware (or right over the line in MD or PA) to have an outdoor wedding.
              I looked at places like Hagley museum, and Longwood gardens but Longwood doesn’t allow the ceremony, only photography.
              I want my ceremony location to be set up like this:

              Any help or advice is appreciated!

                Has anyone noticed how dollar stores sell pagan new age spiritual items?

                Friday, March 25th, 2011

                Like Dream Catchers, candles, scented candles, candle holders for alters, incense sticks, potpourri, incense cones, reeds, semi-precious stones, celestial home decor, celestial outdoor garden decor, chimes, ceramic garden gnomes, elves, fairies, seashells, pentagrams, skull heads & skeleton bones jewelry, birth stones, theatrical masks, tribal masks, wooden boxes ( Pandora style 😀 ) and intricately style notebooks to write down your thoughts.

                Is there a particular reason why dollar stores choose to sell these types of items?

                Would you ever buy a Dream Catcher from a dollar store?
