Last Week in Pix / 2x2

It's the last week of 2012!! We made it through the end of the world (as we know it) and now it's time for a whole new world, a whole new year, a whole new lease on life!

Here are a few images from last week:

We had a shopping event at my studio, Yoga Shelter LA, and of course I chose a station right next to the food table. 
There were so many gluten free or vegan treats I didn't know what to do with myself! 

Wow. More chocolate. Typical. 
These were for sale in the +Jose Eber Hair Salon in Beverly Hills. It's a glittery purple pump made entirely of chocolate. They call it The Doriean. Just kidding

 And the salon looked gorgeous! All Christmasy and festive. Every tree was decorated with purple to match the salon...
Just beautiful. 

Oh, why was I at the salon? For work, of course. Model casting.
I don't really enjoy these things. I feel super judgmental the whole time. But, work is work.

 Last week was my office Holiday party. We went to dinner at Le Petit Four which was supa yum. Then we went to an improv comedy show.
I left early to chill with Certain Someone, but what I saw was comical. I heard it got funnier after I left. Eh well. 

Last Week I Learned:
1) They like me at my job. Apparently I'm doing a good job!
2) I was totally right about who Gossip Girl was! Okay, for awhile I thought Doroda. Then I thought Jenny. But for the last two season I've had a suspicion and I was RIGHT. But. I'm not sure what I'm going to do without Gossip Girl in my life...

This Week I'm Looking Forward To:
1) Volunteering today! Tis the season to give back.
2) Of course I'm looking forward to Christmas, even though I'm sad I won't be home.

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…
