Last Week in Pix/2x2: Less Tricks more Treats

Ah! I'm so behind on blogging! I'm sorry, please forgive.

This weekend was pretty eventful and yesterday I was exhausted. But...No Excuses November. So I'm going to suck it up and do better. 

Last Wednesday was Halloween. I did not put my Ganja Fairy costume back on, Sonic hated his dragon costume (observe):

 And Adan wasn't into wearing his costume either. Absolutely no children came to our house. It didn't feel like Halloween at all!

Later in the week I met up with my long-lost-friend Blaire! She's been living in LA for months and I just found out in September. I can't believe how grown up she is now, and I'm so proud of her for coming out here and chasing her dreams!! There will be tons more pictures of me and Blaire. 

Saturday was date dos with Michael. It was a blasty blast! We went to the LACMA for the Stanley Kubrick exhibit. And though some may think that a museum date is lame (you know who you are) it was actually pretty perfect. We learned cool things about each other, and being in a public place did not halt the PDA.
TMI? LOL. So far, really good. I know, I know. I disgust myself! 

Last week I learned:
1) First (and second) dates can be amazing
2) My hair needs some additional TLC. This week I will be looking up ways to fix that

This week I'm looking forward to:
1) VOTING! Well, I already voted by mail. But I'm looking forward to YOU GOING TO VOTE TODAY and hopefully our President's re-election.  
2) Listening to Christmas music WAY early
Bonus) Date three. :) 

Have a good week, loves!!

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…
