Versatile Blogger Award

Hey kids out there in blog land! Quick update, last week was really busy and this past month has felt like I haven’t had enough time to write, sleep or feel normal. This has caused me to be in a bit of a funk, so as of today I am trying to get back on track and get back to my usual writing routine. I really hate when that happens! To kick off the month in a positive note, I figured I’d put up this award I was nominated for, since it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

The wonderful Ruth over at Flix Chatter nominated me and I just love her blog to pieces, so thank you Miss Toby Stephens!

Here are my 7 fun facts. I really hate talking about myself, so please don’t throw tomatoes at my head! I figured I’d add some non-movie stuff in too, enjoy.

1. I listen to Howard Stern as much as possible. I have been listening ever since I was a kid, I probably shouldn’t have, but I did because my mom was a fan too. Whenever someone finds out that I have this love for Howard they either look at me cross-eyed or I find out they are closet super fans too. BaBa Booey!


2. I dislike, no I abhor ranch dressing. If I see it, smell it or it even comes near me I run in disgust. People who know me well, know this is my Achilles heel and have used it against me. This one time… no not at band camp… I was pretty wasted and my cousin offered me a piece of pizza with tons of ranch dressing hidden under the cheese, I ate the whole thing and then proceeded to have a really bad night. Umm.. yeah.

3. I absolutely love Larry David, I would marry him if I could. Wait I take it back, Jon Hamm, yes, hmmm yes he would be my first choice. Or Leonardo DiCaprio. Or Alexander Skarsgard. I have a problem with decision making is it obvious?!

4.  The movies I can watch on a loop and never get bored are Pulp Fiction, Office Space and Goodfellas.


5. One of the first movies I remember loving was Once Upon A Time In America. It also introduced me to the world of Robert De Niro, even though I was a kid I knew there was something fascinating about him.

6. Another thing I have been obsessed with since childhood is Madonna. Yes don’t laugh at me, seriously I die, she is my Beyoncé girl!

7. I buy way too much makeup (MAC baby) and shoes, I am a girly girl at heart and it’s a problem that may require an intervention. If anyone ever needs a makeup tip, just holla!

  1. Awwww!! Thank you thank you for the lovely pic of Toby, when I saw it I immediately leaped out of my chair as it’s rare to see him on others’ blogs so big hugs for doing so 😛

    I LOVE your blog too, glad I discovered you thru Josh, it’s always fun to fangirl w/ fellow bloggers, he..he.. You can keep Stern and Larry David tho, ahah, I guess I never even listened/seen anything w/ them in it, as you know I’m Miss Toby Stephens… and my penchant is always for the Brits 😉

    I love that you’re a girly girl. MAC is a great makeup isn’t it, tho a bit on the pricey side. I love going to ULTA and trying out a bunch of makeup brands, love Smashbox, Urban Decay and Tarte!

    1. Yes I thought you would like that one! Thank you as well! I know Stern and David are not for everyone, but it’s okay I still love my brits too.

      Mac can be pricey, but I find it’s worth it considering I end up using it more than my other stuff and yes I love the other brands you mentioned too. Ulta and Sephora…I need to be banned from those!

  2. Congrats! I loved Once Upon a Time in America but watched it when I was older which is probably for the best. I probably would’ve hated it as a kid.

      1. Wondered how you’d respond to my sudden reappearance.

        First, I was job hunting. Then, I made a conscious decision to spend more quality time with the kids now that I only have a handful more months with them before going back to work. Finally, I have been watching baseball instead of movies.

        Between all of those factors, I wasn’t any movies. I found my interest in talking about movies had decreased when I wasn’t seeing any. But I finally had a movie day last week, so I’m checking in.

      2. I know I always check your blog and I thought well maybe he took a break since you had so many reviews going on for a while with the film festival you did with Ruth.

        That is good to hear, did you find a job that you like? Will you be teaching again?

        I have recently also been feeling not in the mood to write, just burnt out from work and everything, now trying to get back into the swing of things. So I understand, sometimes we need a break. Good to see you back!! 🙂

      3. Thanks.

        And I did. And will be. Back at my old school, actually, though this time with the 4th and 5th graders, not the middle schoolers.

      4. That’s awesome!! I loved those grades! Not too little like Kinder, but not too old like middle and high school. Glad you got to spend time with your kids and enjoy them because those years can never be replaced. 🙂

      5. Middle is definitely my preferred age; we’ll see how 4th and 5th goes. 🙂

        And yeah. I’m going to miss being home. A lot.

      6. Just saw that you posted a bunch of new stuff. Ohhh yay going to go read those. Forgot to tell you, I haven’t posted a review yet, but I finally saw Her and I loved it. Thought of you and your suggestion. You were right on!
