Why Jurassic World might just be a great date movie.

At some point it was decided that going to a movie was a bad idea for a date (especially a first date). With sites like HowAboutWe.com putting an emphasis on being creative with your dates, the simple “dinner and a movie” date seems a bit old fashioned.

But it doesn’t have to be.

And if you’re going to enjoy a movie as part of your date, then Jurassic World is a pretty good choice… if you do it right.

This seems familiar.

I love it when my faith in synchronistic events is reinforced. After the latest posts, this comic showed up in my Facebook newsfeed. It pretty much sums up my feelings on the correspondences with a certain someone, which finally seem to have stopped.

You can find this comic where I found it on Geek x Girls, or you can find it on it’s original site, Fudge that Sugar.


Day 29: A Weird Quirk of Mine

I have oh so many quirks… The weirdest one (and in my opinion the coolest) is that I pick up other people’s accents. I’m pretty good at it, if I do say so myself. It comes from my theater background.  I’m not the best, but I do have a nice array of them that I keep handy when needed.

I say when needed because you have no idea how helpful it is to be able to randomly jump into a Jersey accent when trying to teach children who can’t keep their mouths closed.

This is a thing that I have yet to figure out about teaching: I don’t know when it became acceptable to talk over your teachers… not subs, but actual teachers.

Why Four from Insurgent is the Perfect Guy

When I began thinking about this post, I was going to write a review of Insurgent, the movie based on the book by Virginia Roth, but I noticed that I kept coming back to Four, the male love interest opposite our heroine, Tris. So why mess with a good thing, right? Any discussion of the character will have to involve discussion of the movie, so it’s a bit of a review.

But also, since I’m discussing the movie: Spoiler alert!

But gentlemen, if you’re looking to find out what women want, then go see this movie and take notes on Four.   Continue reading Why Four from Insurgent is the Perfect Guy

Day 22: Pet Peeves

It’s Spring Break now, so I’m going to warn you up front: my posts may get longer or kookier. I’ve just finished watching the Wendy Williams show, and I’m suddenly aware of a ton of things that bother me that wouldn’t have originally made the cut on this post.

Having said that, there was already a lengthy list of things that bother me, so maybe I’m a bit more high maintenance than I like to admit to being. Continue reading Day 22: Pet Peeves
