El Jefe! It's Chef and You Should See it Today!

Hello all it's Me! Lili of Lili-Land.

Derek, my BFF, and for the record he's a handsome German Shepherd, and I dragged Meeko to the movies the other night. Meeko, he's a cat, was content to cook up a big batch of catnip, sit home and catch up on episodes of 24.

We told him, "Been there, done that." We were hungry for a good old fashioned, fun, normal, no action, no FX type of movie. And we found one: CHEF.

Jon Favreau does a masterful job of cooking. If after seeing this wonderful little film you aren't HUNGRY for good food you don't know cooking. 

Here I am turning in another stellar performance.

After watching this one, Derek and I and Meeko drove out to Nick and Toni's in East Hampton where we dined on all sorts of goodies.

Try the zucchini chips. Try anything and please go see this fun loving movie with a terrific cast. Oliver Platt our personal favorite chubby actor turns in another winning performance.

I should note that Jon did call me awhile back to turn in a cameo for this film but sadly I, once again, ended up on the cutting room floor due to Meeko looking through my mail. He dropped a release form I was to sign and it ended up  blowing away in the wind... so he says. I think he did it on purpose. He's a cat... did I mention that. And even though he says he's our friend, it seems that he's always around when trouble happens.

Derek thinks he's a diabolic James Bond villan hiding out in the house across the street. 
I don't know. Maybe. We'll see.

Please go see Chef. It's really terrific.
Have a Lili-Licious Day.

Happy Start of Summer!

Hello all it's me, Lili of Lili-Land wishing you all a wonderful weekend of Summer.
Here is the cover of Dan's Paper. And as you will see... that's ME on the beach ball. Artist Michael Paraskevas has captured me so well, he should be given a big gold star.

So, Derek, he's my BFF, and I hope you all pick up a copy of Dan's Papers. I'll even autograph it with my paw print if you see me around town.

Godzilla or should I say Snore-zilla?


Hello all! It's me Lili of Lili-Land. Derek (my BFF) and I just got back from our first big summer blockbuster. We were going to see Spiderman but Meeko, he's a cat, is deathly afraid of spiders. We tried to explain, but he just hid under the sofa for a full day.

We finally lured him out with some catnip. He's nuts. Now he's running around the yard all hopped up on catnip.

Anyway, Meeko did agree to see Godzilla, so it was off to the movies this afternoon to see some big old foot stomping action. Nothing like a giant lizard wreaking havoc on the poor Japanese people.

Well, let me tell you... This one was a bit of a Snore-zilla. The big green thing doesn't show up till late in the movie and by that time both Meeko and Derek were hanging out at the candy counter trying to see how many pop-rocks they could hold in their mouths before exploding.

I felt sorry for Godzilla. He's a big misunderstood idiot. His hands are too small and he's obviously got terrible breath. My God, the poor thing breathes all this firey blue stuff out of his mouth... something that I certainly didn't remember from the old Raymond Burr film.

It's not terrible. It's just no Independence Day. Maybe save your money on this one and just rent the original, which in all honesty if you haven't seen it... you should.

Sorry it's been so long since I've written but Derek had the flu and Meeko got lost in Costco last month. It took us weeks to find him. He discovered the cat food section and he sort of moved in there. He put on 20 pounds.

All the best and you all have a Lili-icious Day.

Next time Derek and I will review the new Jon Hamm movie. He's very dreamy but not as dreamy as my BFF Derek.
