The Dumbest Movies I Saw in 2011…and more!

With the Oscar nominations announced today, I looked back on the year and realized that while I may not have seen all of the supposedly Oscar worthy movies, I did manage to see some of the worst films of 2011. What can I say? It’s a weakness. The worst movies I saw: Zookeeper Beastly Prom Scream 4 The Dilemma Monte Carlo (Ok fine, I sort of loved this one.) Footloose Then I thought, why stop there. Let’s look at the rest of my year in movies. Movies I will see when they show up on Netflix: The Roommate Cowboys & Aliens Rise of the Planet of the Apes (I would have gone in the theater but no one would see it with me.) Reel Steel Paranormal Activity 3 Tower Heist We Bought A Zoo New Year’s Eve Movies you couldn’t pay me to see: Sanctum Hall Pass Sucker Punch Soul Surfer Dolphin Tale War Horse (I HATE horse movies.) Puss In Boots (No way he deserve his own feature film.) Jack & Jill Happy Feet Two Movies I was surprised I kind of liked: I am Number Four Jumping the Broom Movies I Never Ever Ever Want To See Again: Something Borrowed Movies I still really want to see: The Muppets Hugo The Iron Lady cough *Twilight* cough It feels so good to get this off my chest.

Candy Party!

I wish I had more pictures to share with you BUT sadly, I didn’t have my camera. On Saturday night, my roommate and I threw a Candy Party. The inspiration: we have WAY too much candy in our house and we wanted to get rid of it.  We invited a few friends for candy and games. Here’s what the table looked like: We served the candy in baskets, used Twilight napkins (meant to be eye candy) and gave toothbrushes as a parting gift. We also handed out brown bags and ziplocks so people could fill up a bag of candy to take home. Other than candy, I also made Pink Popcorn which is a recipe my Grandma gave me years ago. It’s one of my favorite recipes. Mostly because I think it’s adorable. Grandma’s Pink Popcorn 2 Cups Sugar 2/3 Cup Top Cream (Whole Milk or Half & Half) 1/4 Tsp. Salt 1 Tbsp. White Karo Syrup 1 Tsp Vanilla 1/4 Tsp Red Food Coloring *Cook sugar, cream, salt and syrup to 230 degrees or just under soft ball stage. Add Vanilla, add coloring, pour over 6 quarts of popcorn. Pour on wax paper, allow to dry. Games: We played “Candy on a cracker” which was inspired by Jimmy Fallon. Apparently he does something like this on his show except with all kinds of food. Basically, we took three candies, put them on a ritz cracker, blinded folded the contestant and made him eat the entire cracker. They then have to guess which candy was on the cracker. That was a surprisingly big hit. We also played CANDY bingo....

Paula Deen has the diabetes: A Tribute

Oh Paula Deen, I can’t believe you have diabetes. Wait no, I can. But I’m sorry to hear about it. Enjoy the jokes I wrote at your expense. Love you, girl! Paula Deen has diabetes??? I thought the heart palpitations I got from eating Paula’s food was because I loved it so much! Type II Diabetes? That’s the good kind right? Like the good kind of cholesterol? Diabetes! No problem. Just eat more butter and less sugar. Paula Deen has only had diabetes for 3 years? I would’ve guessed longer. Just replace the sugar in Paula Deen’s recipes with cocaine to keep that addictive quality. And you’ll lose weight too! So Paula Deen has diabetes. So what. Doesn’t that just make her more relatable to her fans? Wilford Brimley better watch out. Diabetes testing supplies could’ve just found their new spokesperson. Paula Deen’s Recipes for Diabetes. On bookshelves now! I don’t blame Paula Deen. This is sugar’s fault for being so gosh darn delicious! #yumyum I’m going to make my favorite Paula Deen recipe for dinner tonight in honor of this tragic news. Love,...
