Word of the Day

It’s time to inject some class into this bitch so starting soon (maybe tomorrow, maybe next year) I will be posting a word of the day. One of my all time favorite life projects is the ongoing expansion of my vocabulary and I would love to include all of my readers in on the fun. […]

Anyone who has read this blog before knows I’m a huge fan of television shows aimed at teenagers (and of using the phrase “huge fan”). Maybe it’s because I miss the innocence associated with that time in life. Maybe I’m really immature. Maybe I’m definitely both of those things. Regardless, I know what I like […]

2015 Year of Reading

I’m not one to make New Years’ Resolutions. They are carried out so rarely that it seems like setting myself up for failure. Plus if I want to do or change something, I tend to just dive in. No resolution needed here. This year my mother (HI MOM!) challenged me to follow her resolution: read […]

Bonnie is walking through the cemetery because she is a creep. She sees a bunch of Bennett witch graves before she comes to a coffin. Klaus appears behind her, telling her that he’s figured out how to open it. He then rushes toward her and bites her. Of course it’s a dream so Bonnie wakes […]

I promised I would write about the super awesome Vitamin String Quartet in a Just Listen post I wrote almost two years ago (holy cow!) and it has been far too long since I mentioned one of my favorite bands. Or are they a band? I mean, I know they’re a quartet (duh) but it […]

Halloween Edition Pumpkin

If you like funny things then you should be watching The League. It is a hilarious show about a group of friends who have a fantasy football league. Don’t worry, you don’t have to know anything about football to enjoy the show. One of my favorite episodes is the Halloween-centric “Ghost Monkey”. If you haven’t […]

Halloween Edition Pumpkin

When I was a little girl, I was super into Jem and the Holograms, a television show created in the late 80’s about a girl named Jerrica who uses a hologram generator built by her deceased father to change herself into Jem, a pop star with pink hair. She also changes her younger sister and […]

My favorite thing about The Disney Channel when I was growing up (besides Bug Juice) were the original movies that aired every couple/few months. There was no greater thrill than seeing the previews announcing the newest movie. I was recently watching Halloweentown (because duh) and began thinking about my favorite DCOMs, the best of the […]

Halloween Edition Pumpkin

One of the most consistently funny Halloween-themed episodes of television I’ve ever watched is “Halloween” (original title!), a season two episode of New Girl. I can watch this episode over and over again, and the big haunted house sequence still gives me belly chuckles. Warning: do not watch the TV spot if you are anti-spoilers! TV […]

Halloween Edition Pumpkin

I’ve written about my favorite episode of The Office here before and thought it was high time that I share another, this time with a Halloween spin- it is October after all. OBSERVATIONS I think it’s rare to find an office where everyone dresses up for Halloween. My last year in an office only two […]

Last year Husband and I carved pumpkins together. It’s kind of our tradition, because it only takes something happening twice for it to be a tradition. Don’t believe me, look it up. For my carving, I went with a scary witch with a spider on her face. I am extremely anti-spider so I found it […]

Halloween Edition Pumpkin

It is October once again and if you’ve read my blog with any kind of regularity, you know what that means: all things Halloween! Last year I wrote about Hocus Pocus and a small handful of my favorite Halloween-themed episodes of television. I never did find the time to complete my (very short) list, so […]

Several months ago Boyfriend became Husband (yay!) and our wedding was all about the music. In addition to having the lovely Mr. Jesse Stockton and uber-amazing Six Pack of Gentlemen play, I was determined to create the perfect playlist. I wanted optimum guest enjoyment and dancing- tons and tons of dancing. I wanted songs that […]

I was obviously a weird kid because I grew up wanting to date Casper. Yes, date. A ghost. I wanted to date a ghost. I can almost guarantee that if you were an eight/nine year old girl in 1995 you would to, for that was the year that Casper was released. PLOT Teenage Kat moves […]

30 Day Movie Challenge

Day 30- Your least favorite movie Wow. Final day of the challenge (which has been spread out over way more than 30 days due to multiple lapses in internet) and it ends on a sour note. Not the way I would choose to go out but it is what it is. And by that I […]

30 Day Movie Challenge

Day 29- A movie that changed your opinion about something Um, I”m pretty sure this isn’t a thing for me. I’ve never watched a movie and become suddenly aware of some atrocity or felt the need to change an aspect of my life based on what I just viewed. I usually watch movies because I’m […]

30 Day Movie Challenge

Day 28- Movie with the best soundtrack Impossible. This is literally impossible to answer. I’ve considered writing regular posts on the various soundtracks I love and the influences they have had on my life. It’s highly likely that I will some time in the future when I light a fire under my butt and get […]

30 Day Movie Challenge

Day 27- Favorite classic movie My favorite classic movie is Cool Hand Luke. Paul Newman is fabulous (as usual) as a prisoner sent to jail for cutting the heads off parking meters. I’m not sure why he does it other than being drunk and maybe stealing the money inside? Can you cut the head off […]

5x5

I will be the first to admit that I am slightly addicted to the internet. I say slightly because I am so fond of reading (real books!) and also because work has nothing to do with computers unless you count the registers (which I don’t). This addiction means that I spend countless hours each week […]
