Last Week in Pix/Don't Try This At Home +2x2

Hi!

Last week in pictures...here we go:

I voted by mail!! 
 This was my first time to vote as a Californian, so that's exciting. I also voted Yes on the proposition for porn stars to wear condoms. Yes, that's a real thing. God bless Los Angeles.

Friday night I got all touristy because my friend Eric was in town from Quebec. So we went to Hollywood and saw the sights. 


More sights...


Brandi and Eric....


Shrek's star (he's probably the most famous star. Just sayin.) 


Then, on the way home at almost 4 a.m. while there was no one on the road, I got a little adventurous. Kids: do NOT try this stunt! I was really really really really dumb for doing it. But. I did. And I was really really really really dumb for photographing it. But. I did. I went over 100 mph on the highway. Go, Mini, Go! 

Stunts performed by a really really really stupid chick and should not be attempted by anyone, ever.  

2x2

Last week I learned...
1. My hair is getting too long/big for bantu knot-outs and I need to come up with a different style
2. It's time for a friend cleanse. A few people are adding more drama than goodness to my life and 'ain't nobody got time for that.'

This week I'm looking forward to...
1.Halloween and the first costume made just for me! Lisa is helping me make my Ganja Fairy costume and I'm so excited!
2. Trying to go gluten free. I know I feel better when I eat that way, but I haven't had the will power to stick with it. But I'm tired of feeling sick when I eat. I went in to budgeting kicking and screaming but now I see it paying off, literally. So I can only hope that this will have a similar outcome. 

I hope you had a great weekend, because here comes another week. ::Sigh::

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

WARNING: ALL OF THE SPOILERS. LIKE, SO MANY SPOILERS. GO SEE THE MOVIE. THAT'S AN ORDER. 
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…
