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. 


2x2
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!!

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…
