Wordless Wed: Cats Caption these pics

What would your captions below the cat pictures read? 

Post your captions in the comments and I'll post the best ones next week.

Caption the above picture - I'll post the best caption on my blog.

There you have it, 50% of our kitty cats. Sammy is in front of my workspace - you can see my tools to his left and bead boxes behind him.

Some of these were taken with my camera phone and I had to be fast to get the tilt.

Monday Movies: Inspire Me Monday

Monday Movies is about Dracula - the Untold

My maternal grandparents are from Kiev, in the Ukraine, near Transylvania, so John and I went to see the movie Dracula - the Untold. 

My movie rating is $8.5 - I rate them whether I'd pay full-time (probably not today's prices, but on a $1-10 scale). I do recommend seeing this at the movies; the special effects are awesome. 

Luke Evans is Dracula and he's pretty hot (and not cold, if you know what I mean.  

The red dragon armor is special and fabulous.

Dracula moves like the birds and wipes out other people's armies. The special effect is mind-blowing 

Watch for my 2nd favorite character, Paul Kaye (sad he's not related to Danny Kaye, I checked) who plays a monk

Dracula wasn't on my top ten movies to see, but I'm really glad to have seen it.

Part of Inspire me Monday blog hop.

What's your favorite movie and why?

About Me
I love designing jewelry using a combination of colorful and oddly shaped gemstone and glass beads. Also, I handstamp greeting cards and make candles. I work full time, but my beading and other activities are my creative outlet.
