Last Week in Pix / 2x2

Hi! Another week gone by, 2012 is almost over...are you making the most of it? Judging by how few pictures I took last week I'm not. I've got to take more pictures! 

I made cookies!! Correction: I made GLUTEN FREE cookies! They looked not great (gluten flour = flat cookies) but they tasted really yummy. You'll be able to read all about them soon on my friend Stacey's blog. I'll keep you posted...

Certain Someone invited me to his new place up in the hills. It's a pretty spectacular crib. I took a picture from the top of the hill, but because it was late you can't really see how amazing the view is. Either way, here it is:

Taking a picture from my car may have also dampened the effect. I'll try for better images next time I'm over there. 

I received an invite to the most prestigious and anticipated party of the year! It was tons of fun and I love getting drunk spending time with so many wonderful people.

That's all, folks. I took no more pictures. Don't be sad, there's still the 2x2:

Last week I learned:
1) I can hold down the fort when both of my bosses are out of town. 
2) Even people who you've known forever can shock you, and when they do you may just shock yourself by how you react.

This week I'm looking forward to:
1) Spending time with Certain Someone before he leaves Wednesday morning.
2) The fact that it's the last full week before the holiday. Woo!

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…
