Last Week in Pix/2x2

Last week was the first full week of #freshfoodfebruary, so most of my pictures are of - you guessed it - food. 

For example: this lovely picture from the Studio City Farmers Market. I love going to farmer's markets, even if it is for street team. Everything is so fresh, people are so nice, there are free samples...

...and ponies! At least at this market there were ponies. How adorable is that? 

On Thursday I received my 2 day cleanse from #therealjuice and I was so excited to get started, but a little nervous. 

I was down to raw foods in prep for the cleanse and opened my very first avocado on Thursday. It really wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I still don't know how to peel them, however, so I just scooped bites out with a spoon. Mmmmm. 
My cleanse went well. This juice was definitely my favorite. On day two, though, even my least favorite juice started to taste good (and honestly it wasn't bad to begin with). I still had dreams about hot dogs and s'mores and I have a serious craving for cheese and eggs. But overall I feel really good and would do another cleanse from The Real Juice. It was a great way to kick off #freshfoodfebruary.

2x2
Last Week I Learned:
-How to open an avocado
-I really could drink all of my meals

This Week I'm Looking Forward To:
-The +The GRAMMYs ! In just a few hours!
-Valentine's Day being over. If I see another proposal commercial I may puke. #bitter

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…
