Last Week in Pix/2x2

Last week = Thanksgiving week! I was really looking forward to a break. As I was looking, forward I spotted this on my way to work early last week:

This, my Twihards, is dedication. 

I've become addicted to hot chocolate with Hazelnut Baileys. 

I went through an entire bottle of Baileys this weekend. I may have a problem. 

For Thanksgiving most food was supplied, but I wanted to make mac&cheese. I decided to alter my recipe so that it was gluten free. 

It turned out pretty good. When I use Almond Milk, however, I need to add more salt and more cheese. 

Below is our bourgie meat and cheese plate that Chris put together. 

Which we demolished!!

Sonic got some playtime in with Uncle Chris...

We took our Happy Thanksgiving portrait 'Californians' style:

Friday night Chris and I dropped in on Johnny Polygon's Venice shindig. He was DJing, not rapping. I was sort of hoping for some rap-action. But alas...

Super exciting, right? Well. That's how Thanksgiving goes when you hang in LA. Pro: Wearing shorts cuz it's 80+ degrees. Con: not getting to see family. 

Last week I learned 
1) Sometimes you have to bake pies that come in a box. It's important to read the label. #fatkidfail
2) The difference between an LLC and a corporation. More to come on that! 

This week I'm looking forward to
1) Friday. Can I say that already?
2) The CUSA championship game. Go Tulsa!!

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 …

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…

How The New Prince Album(s) Wrecked My Life – In The Best Possible Way

If you don't know, now you know: Prince dropped an album yesterday called ART OFFICIAL AGE, and also brought us the debut album from his chick trio 3RDEYEGIRL titled PLECTRUMELECTRUM. 
 The Almighty Prince has been teasing us with new music for quite awhile now, dropping singles like "Breakfast Can Wait" long before the new album was announced. But then came the catchy and sexy "U Know" and the news that Prince would give us the first breath of new music since 20Ten in 2010. 
I've spent all of yesterday and today listening to these albums and I'm still not done. No surprise: Prince is blowing my mind. I'm a sucker for an album that tells a story, and this one tells a tale that's futuristic and retrospective at the same damn time. How? Prince, that's how. There's a wondering feeling that the protagonist is trying to find his place in life and love, only to discover (with the help of a guiding being) that he is everything, everything is h…
