Mope gets points for being the first to send news.
I love irreverent comedy. It’s one of my guilty pleasures, and quite something most people don’t know about me. Sometimes Hubby is surprised at my taste in comedy, even after almost 29 years. It’s not like I make a secret of my adoration for everything Mel Brooks, or the Coen Brothers. I appreciate all forms of comedy, some more than others. To this day, I refuse to watch Four Weddings and a Funeral.
I have standards. The may be low, but they are there just the same.
Last week my friend Osoloco posted one of her favorite movies on the social-site-with-faces, and it turns out it’s one of my guilty pleasure movies, too! So I have been watching it over and over again for the past ten days.
I am not a gamer. I can count the number of times I played Tetris™ on one hand with fingers left over. I don’t like video games. Oh, I can sit and watch the kids play them, and Hubby as well. Especially when he plays Minecraft and a Creeper comes out and BOOM!!! That’s always hilarious to me. Not to them, though. Obviously I have a better sense of humor. Anyway, I may not be a gamer, but I am very familiar with the gaming culture, and this movie encapsulates the best and worst of it. And to have such wonderful talent like Doris Roberts, Shirley Knight, and Shirley Jones is simply divine.
So, what are y’all’s guilty pleasure movies? And are they on Netflix??
And just like last week, it’s actual booze, and pricey to boot.
Willett Pot Still Reserve is made the old-fashioned way. And by that, I do mean still craft, so it’s a rare find. Personally I can’t drink it straight. I can have it with water, and the flavor is rather floral at first, with a “green” finish. And no, I don’t mean envirowacko finish. Just that it feels like a mossy, herbally taste. If you can find it, we at Casa de Aggie highly recommend it. It’s a bit steep, but well worth the price of admission.
Off topic, I’m sorry to be so late with the post. I had a doctor’s appointment and it took FOREVER!!! Socialized medicine WTF
Social sites are like a gory train wreck.
ZOMG!!! THE HUGE MANATEE!!! I JUST CAN’T LOOK AWAY!!!111ELEVENTY!!!
The drama is as rich as chocolate ganache poured over tiramisu that has been infused with three cups of Khalua™ after soaking in sweetened espresso. But unlike that delish tiramisu of my dreams, the drama is never ending.
I just don’t get it. Even the friends who are most stable and normal succumb to it. I don’t understand how it is that Person A can tell me, Person B, they are doing fine to my face, but 15 minutes later are posting about how their world has come to a screeching halt because Person B couldn’t see that Person A is hurting through the brave face she shows the world, and was too selfish to make the effort to find out what was wrong with Person A.
I’m sorry, but what the ever loving FUCK?? I don’t need that shit on my social site page. No one does. If someone has a problem with someone else, take it up with them, PRIVATELY. Honestly, at times like that, I feel like deleting my page and you know, living my life.
But then a shitstorm of drama happens and I just can NOT look away.
And do y’all enjoy the drama? There is popcorn to be had
When Tiberius came to visit, we gave him free reign over the remote control, and Little One found herself fascinated by two different channels: Chiller, and Food Network. It is disconcerting to be watching Bobby Flay one minute, and then watching someone being flayed the next.
The juxtaposition is not without merit, I’m sure.
Anyway, one of her now-favorite TV shows is Chopped. I find it heartbreaking to watch, but she loves it. I could never be a participant, simply because I lack the vision on how to fix an entree using Honeycomb™ cereal, Ahi tuna, parsnips, and oyster sauce. What I have noticed, though, is the chefs’ habits of reaching for heat. Not a dish is served that doesn’t have some sort of hot spice in it, including the desserts sometimes. I myself can not handle spicy foods much, but understand that heat can bring out certain flavors in the foods in which is added.
I get that. I really do. But it just seems to me that EVERY SINGLE DISH prepared on these shows has to have heat. Personally, I prefer to use herbs and salt to bring out flavor. Eating spicy foods tends to sear my tastebuds, leaving them feeling like they have been trampled to death.
Sure, I’m in the minority on this. Hard for a person of Hispanic descent to admit to such a thing, I’m sure! But I am sure y’all have opinions on what is the best way to spice up foods, even if it means using Bhut Jolokia
