Some of my own original designed patterns will be coming up soon!!
2 tablespoons of coffee grounds.
3 tablespoons of baking powder
1 tablespoon of natural honey
1/2 tablespoon of sea salt.
Mix and now you have a face mask that makes your skin feel awesome.
Ughhhh... Why must Americans copy everything the British do well? Love Actually was pretty good, but this movie just looks like too many overpaid actors each with their own sub-par sub-plots. And let's throw in Taylor Swift AND Taylor Lautner because those two are so IN right now. Vampires are in too. Want to add a Vampire storyline in too?
To say how I feel about this movie from only the preview could accurately be described by the reaction of my most recent movie theater audience. This is a true story.
Audience sitting patiently in the cramped movie theater. While chewing on popcorn and sipping on pop, the lights go dark and the preview begins.
Audience doesn't laugh at "funny" moments in preview.
After the narrator announces each of the names of around 100 or so semi-ok actors and a C+ actors... the audience sighs.
Obviously overwhelmed, the audience is annoyed by the over-casting and starts murmuring:
"Definitely a rental."
"Ugh... Jamie Fox was good in Ray. What happened here?"
"That's a lot of salaries."
I probably won't be seeing this Oscar winning piece.

Here are a few of my favorite things (that will not be under my tree unless I buy them myself.)

I saw him play at this bar in Atlanta two years ago and he was amazing. It was small, no one knew who he was back then and it was fantastic. It was so amazing and fantastic that I actually did something I never EVER do: I messaged a "famous" person.
Let me first say that the last time I tried to contact a famous person was in Mrs. Harvey's sixth grade class. We had an assignment to write to a famous person. While some kids wrote to the president and to Blossom, I wrote to Danny Devito to tell him that I still appreciated his acting ability regardless that he was in Twins. DeVito never wrote back but some kid in my class got sneakers sent from Magic Johnson. (By the way, Click here to see the Blossom Intro in Spanish)
First let me say that I think its wicked lame when people try to contact an entertainer. Don't @Obama or @MeryllStreep. They're busy. But at the time, I wasn't really liking Atlanta (at all) and his music was what I listened to ALL the time. So I wrote him to say thanks for writing great music.
And he wrote back. Wrote a wicked nice message.
Not going to lie, it was pretty awesome. And further made me like this musician even more. Taking time for the fans? Pretty sweet. Now he's probably too big for that, but it was still great.

Ahhh college. I love how JMU takes finals week and makes it into the best party ever. Only the dukes can do that.

No worries- my hand still fit in my mitten so I was able to get all bundled up and go sing christmas carrolls for Prelude Weekend in Kennebunkport.

Cheerios vs. Weird organic stuff I stupidly bought in shape of O's
The apartment on the West End vs. The apartment on the East End

Showed this to my sister last year but for some reason, it keeps popping up on the radar. Hilarious. And great use of LEDs. I'm pretty sure this is exactly what they are intended for.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first movie I ever saw. And this is just awesome.

And Modcloth.com, one of my favorite places to online window shop, is also having their own Movember...
Both completely unrelated to the other... I'm assuming.
So I guess I should say Happy Movember balls and all.

FOUND IN THE UNITED STATES!!! Kinder Eggs are illegal to sell in the United States because of the small toy inside of an edible, delicious chocolate egg. The store that sells them has connections to the old country and I GOT one!!!
UPDATE: On the day of this blog post, The Lolapaloozashow got 17 hits from Germany. That's 17 more than usual. So I'm assuming other people (in Germany) are looking up about Kindereggs. Because they're amazing.
Greendrinks is an amazing.. thing? Every month, its hosted at a local bar and you can go, drink, meet people, whatever. Beer is cheap/free. Make a donation, which goes to a charity sponsored that month. Its great. And great beer. NOT natty light. My co-workers and I were recently featured on the Portland Press Herald for our drinking abilities.
