Sunday 2x2

Sundays are a day to reflect. I like to look back at last week to review what I learned and really let things soak in. I then enjoy looking forward to the week ahead and getting really excited or amping myself up to conquer the world.

Because I work Sundays at the dealership I have a full five hours of sitting around doing nothing. This makes reflection easy. And drawn out.

Last week I took part in a photo shoot at work. It's the first I've ever had a hand in. It was tons o fun and I learned a lot. The best thing I learned? The right camera makes normal people look like super models. These girls were pretty, don't get me wrong. But nothing to write home about. Each of them had a defining feature that was attention grabbing. Otherwise...the makeup, the hair and-most importantly- the camera played them WAY up. So what did I learn? Wear more makeup, stop running from cameras.

Second, and this one is easy, work is much more fun when a dog is present. Take the little furry friend I have with me today. Adorbz!

So two to look forward to: these kind of go together. 1) I'm excited to get my dress in that I will wear in Vegas. And 2) VEGAS!!! I can't wait to get there, see my bestie and get crazy with my pals. Hopefully I'm not a sobbing mess on Saturday....
Bring on the week!

Sex. Dirty, Dirty Sex

Friends, I have something I have to let you know - if you don't know already: Sex is disgusting. 
Seriously, think about it. Ew, don't think about it.  Yes, it feels fantastic. If you're with the right person at the right time it feels out-of-this-world incredible (fireworks, much?).  But have you ever stopped to think about what you're doing? Like, literally?
You're placing your most private parts into someone else's most private parts. Or allowing someone to place their most private parts into yours, depending on your gender/sexual preference. That's GROSS, people! Sure we ignore it because it just feels so damn good. But come on, ew!
Then throw on top of that the consequences of this nasty habit we have:  1. A baby. Oh yes, this is a consequence. Particularly if you're not currently in the market for an infant. I don't even want to think about what that does to the body. There's no turning back from a baby. Well, there is, but that's ano…

Justice for Georgina, aka Go See Get Out Immediately

In Get Out, the brilliant new Jordan Peele film, black people are used by white people's brains. 
That's the shortest explanation, as there are so many levels to the movie. I'm typically not one to see scary movies (I can't even get through Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video), but when I read about this movie's perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and the raving reviews from critics, I had to go and support this film from a black director with black stars.

I'm not a fan of scary movies. They always give me nightmares. Before I saw the film, a coworker assured me that I wouldn't have nightmares after watching Get Out. He was right and wrong. I didn't have nightmares about monsters lurking in dark corners, but I stayed awake unpacking all of the themes and metaphors of the film. In doing so, a big part of why I wasn't afraid occurred to me: These …

Denzel Washington > Tom Hanks and I'm sorry.

I was looped into (OK honesty time I looped myself in) to a debate on Facebook about which actor is the best of our time: Tom Hanks or Denzel Washington. 

Initially my thought was: no contest. It's Denzel. I don't understand why we're having a debate. 

But then the Tom Hanks stans went so hard I had to step back and think about whether or not I was trippin' 
But I can assure you I am not. Here are my arguments.
1. Denzel Washington played Malcolm X. Today (May 19th, the date this debate began) is Malcolm's birthday, so triple points for Denzel. 

2. Denzel is sexy as hell. 
I mean, can I just...
Tom, you're a sweetheart but I'm sorry, Denzel's got you on hotness.

3.  Tom and Denzel both have two Oscars. But Denzel was only the second African American actor to win an Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role (second to Mr. Sidney Poitier). So if we're talking best of our time, that's a heavy stat. 

4.  We saw Apollo 13 in science class, but we watched R…
