I PREFER MY HILLS ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF SILENCE…OR ALIENS

There are some popular movies and TV shows everybody but me watches. Some things I just don’t understand, to this day I still cringe when I see someone in gladiator sandals! 

1) Frozen: I was all excited to watch this one a few months back. But, let me tell you what the previews won’t, IT’S A FUCKING MUSICAL! I actually didn’t finish watching it because I have no patience for musicals. I don’t know what it is, I just feel the urge to get out of my seat and walk away if a musical is on. There are exactly two musicals I can sit through, they are Grease and Wizard of Oz. All the rest can go scratch. Sorry Sound of Music lovers, I just can’t do it. 

2) Walking Dead/All things zombie: My boyfriend and everyone else on planet Earth rabidly loves this show. I actually am not knocking it, but I just have no desire to watch it right now. I’m sure it’s a perfectly good show. I mean nobody sings in it, so there is a plus right there! As a side note, I don’t get everyone’s obsession with zombies. It seems like anything zombie that comes out, everyone is getting their sawed off shot-guns and anxiously stands in line for it. Zombies aren’t my thing. I’m more drawn to TV or movies that involve aliens or the paranormal. Zombies just don’t do it for me. I’ve definitely seen my fair share of great zombie movies, but it’s never something I’m cracking skulls to be first in line to see.

3) Game of Thrones: I tried with this one, I really did. Actually, I was basically forced to watch this one. My BF loves this show, to the point where he has watched the entire series twice already. I’ve only seen a few episodes and couldn’t get into it. I guess I’m just too “delicate” for it. I can’t handle the “rapeyness”, the incest, disease-infested prostitutes that flash their V’s, and the constant betrayals. I don’t consider myself a feminist, but I also just don’t like how the women characters are treated either. If I were on the show, everyone would have been be-headed by now. Which I guess HBO wouldn’t be too pleased with because there would be no more seasons to make money from. 

4) On The Road:  I don’t think this one was really “trending”, but I couldn’t get into either. I mean, I was intrigued to watch the movie, but it was too boring to finish. I decided to change gears and read the book instead. The book was also boring. So I think I’ll pass on this!

5) Fast & Furious: I liked and saw the first two movies, but don’t understand why they kept beating a dead horse by making more. I mean, maybe they’ll finally stop making these since my beloved Paul Walker died. But, somehow, I’m sure they’ll keep releasing them. They’ll just replace Paul with Vin Diesel in a blonde wig. 

6) Mad Men: I absolutely loved this show up until season 5, when shit got just…weird. First off, they should have never taken a two year hiatus! That’s just logic 101 right there, but when it finally did return it just was never the same. Personally, I found it F’d beyond repair, everyone was just so depressed and had bad things to deal with. It also didn’t seem like it was going to get better, so I just stopped watching it. Maybe it’s less doomed now, but I think there are better odds of me watching a musical.

FOR A GOOD TIME, CALL GROWN-UP JENNY

images

In between weekend activities, I decided to watch Forrest Gump. Full disclosure, I haven’t watched this movie in it’s entirety since the ’90s (whoa, that makes me sound old). I just have this weird phobia against re-watching movies that are over 2 hours long, makes me feel trapped or something. Doesn’t matter that Forrest Gump is a great movie. But enough about my strange issue with lengthy movies. I guess I never realized how much of a dick grown-up Jenny is. She started off nice enough, letting Forrest sit with her when nobody else would.

She also taught him how to climb trees and read.

forrest_and_jenny_on_tree_peas_and_carrotsEven teenage Jenny stood up for Forrest, when the older kids that threw rocks traded in their bikes for a shitty pickup truck.

But then they go to college and Jenny becomes an asshole. She gets mad at Forrest for ripping that rape-y guy off her in a car. Then she wanders off and decides to take up the nude-guitar and gets mad at Forrest for telling off the rude guys. When Forrest confesses his love for her, she quickly hitches a ride with a random dude to “wherever” to get the hell away from him. When Forrest mother dies, she is not there to console him.

Instead, when she becomes homeless, she decides to mooch off of Forrest and live in his house until he asks her to marry him. OH HOW HORRIBLE THAT MUST HAVE BEEN FOR HER! Heaven forbid a nice man that isn’t a douche, and showers regularly, asks for her grimy hand. But before she callously abandons him, she has sex with him. Because you know, sex totally makes up for repeatedly ripping this mans heart out, and giving back his medal of honor. Totally!

Years later, she asks Forrest to visit her. She then decides to tell Forrest he has a son named Haley Joel Osment. She also casually mentions that she has the HIV or something (probably from shared needles or sitting on an infested stool while nude-guitaring), and asks Forrest to marry her. I mean, why now? She is dying anyway, and she has to dump the kid with someone, right? I just hope she didn’t have the HIV when she slept with Forrest! That would make for a horrible sequel that I’m sure they’ll do eventually, since they like to make sequels for movies 20 years after the fact.

ON TOP OF THAT, she picks the ugliest effing skirt wedding dress I’ve ever seen. Then, she decides to die. That wench!

GIVE ME BEER AND CANDY!

I had a pretty laid-back weekend. We went out for drinks and also tried Copper House Tavern. I think we will definitely go back to the tavern, the food was good and it wasn’t packed. I got butternut squash ravioli, Andy got a hummus plate, and Brian got a fried chicken sandwich. I think next time I will try the chicken sandwich, it smelled really good! They played a good mix of music and wasn’t super loud, so we could actually carry on conversation. Andy used it as the opportunity to try his water vapor pipe. Don’t worry folks, it’s just water vapor and cherry-vanilla flavored smoke.

The orange part of the pipe is glittery! I told Andy I want to get a glittery bubble pipe so I can blow bubbles at bars.

I got a large Yuengling, I love the glass it came in! I also loved the decor

Today I went to my parents house for Easter. It is also their wedding anniversary, so we each pitched in a got them a new patio set. My younger nieces and nephews enjoyed the egg hunt and overload of chocolate! There was 47 courses (as usual-we’re Italian). My cousins also joined us for the egg hunt and dessert. I feel like a balloon now, but whatever!

CLARITY VITAMIN C SERUM FOR FACE BY AU NATURAL @BrandBacker #EUNATURALHEALTH

fVlrdbLUSIKFYazALqyP_Clarity-Vitamin-C-Serum
Thanks to BrandBacker, I got the opportunity to try Eu Natural Clarity Vitamin C Facial Serum. I’ve been using it in the mornings on clean and dry skin (pre-moisturizer) on my face and neck. I’ve always had some fine lines around my eyes, but the serum does help, especially when I use a powder foundation (usually makes the lines around my eyes more noticeable). I have oily acne-prone skin and the serum has not made me breakout. It also doesn’t feel oily on my skin after application, it absorbs very quickly! The serum does have a slight smell. It’s not a bad smell, just a smell. It disappears quickly, so don’t worry. I will definitely continue to use this each morning, and hoping to see improvement on fine lines and post-acne marks. 
Product and Company Info:
This serum is an antioxidant blend with vitamin C, vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid, and herbal extracts. These ingredients help to smooth skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and treat dark spots. It reduces wrinkles by stimulating collagen production for more radiant and youthful looking skin.

COCONUT CRACK WATER & APRIL #IPSY “BEAUTY ROCKS” BAG

Go figure, the one day I decide to not start my car, I wake up to this crap! I also just put my ice scraper in the trunk last week and swapped it out for the windshield visor. This was Mother Nature’s FU to doing that, obviously. For once, I was one of those people I hate that doesn’t clean off their car. I started the engine and threw on the wipers and went on my way. But I ended up getting annoyed that I couldn’t see out of my back window, so I pulled over and quickly cleared the back off. 

I guess since we haven’t had any snow in 6 weeks or so, people (of course) forgot how to drive in it. I guess there were a lot of accidents everywhere. Thankfully, I didn’t really encounter any of them. Just hit some light traffic from the sanding trucks creeping along. But on the way, my tire pressure light came on, and I’m really hoping I don’t have a slow leak somewhere. I hate going to the mechanic in between oil changes. I stopped by a gas station and refilled all my tires. I don’t own a tire pressure gauge, so I’m glad the air compressor had one built-in.

Anyway, by the time I got to work, I figured I earned myself a Coconut Crack Water (Coco Cafe). I’ve had coconut water before, but I didn’t like it. The cafe downstairs was out of the chocolate banana Naked Juice, so I hesitantly tried the Coco Cafe coconut water in the chocolate flavor. I’m glad I did, because it’s delicious! It also has espresso in it, so I can skip the coffee at home when I’m running late and grab a Coco Cafe from the cafeteria. Wahoo!

My April “Beauty Rocks” Ipsy GlamBag arrived yesterday. This month I got Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Eye Pencil in black, City Color White Gold Shadow and highlight mousse, Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Scrub, Big Sexy Hair Root Volumizing Spray, and Cailyn Tinted Lip Balm. I’ve only tried the eye shadow/highlighter and the lip balm so far. I love the sheer shimmery color of the shadow/highlighter, it will be good for travel since it can be used as an eye-shadow and highlighter. I discovered there is a built-in brush for the lip balm! The balm has nice color and coverage. I can’t wait to try more of these!

AT LAST!

I had a dentist appointment today that I was dreading. I don’t have a fear of going to the dentist, or getting work done. I just simply don’t like to go because I have to take time off work (or make up the time) and ALWAYS end up with a chatty hygienist! I was bracing myself. Hoping I don’t get Chatty Cathy again, or the older woman that spent my visit lecturing me on drinking coffee, soda, or juice, or the Egyptian woman that was overly thorough with my cleaning and took out a ruler to measure gum recession. At long last, I got one of the few normal people. We chatted casually for a minute or two before my appointment and then barely a peep from her through my cleaning and X-rays. HALLELUJAH! At last, a person that doesn’t talk my ear off while cleaning! You have no idea how happy this made me. Also, it’s is pretty sad that made me happy. Now if only this rain would go away…

Oh yeah, an update from my last post. I ran into my upstairs neighbor and he and some other neighbors were also woken up by “A Streetcar Named Shut the Fuck Up” guy. I assumed he was a drunk guy that got booted from his place. Turns out, he was probably looking for his lost dog and was crying in the middle of the street. Now I feel awful, I hope he found his dog! He was clearly very upset by it to spend over an hour at the crack of dawn yelling and pissing off the neighbors across the street.
