Oscars drama 101 + my favorite dresses

best dressed oscars 2013

I’m no drama geek, but oh-my-eff, there was some serious crazy drama at last night’s Oscars.  I don’t love watching the actual show as much as the red carpet and the sweet acceptance speeches, but only the very few genuine ones.  And of course my favorite part is the eye language (it’s a thing, I just made it up) between couples on the carpet, and the dialogue (lip reading only) between the assistants and actors/actresses.  Whoo, there was some drama…

Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games

The world is exploding right now with The Hunger Games.  Okay, maybe not the whole world, but definitely my corner of it.  Have you read The Hunger Games trilogy?  Suzanne Collins, the author of the series has written what are arguably some of the best novels ever written.  If you haven’t read them, go do it now.  I’ll wait. Done?  Good.  That’s about how long it took me to devour the set. The first book, The Hunger Games, was turned…

Double dream hands Friday

My friend just tweeted out this video of Double Dream Hands, and I learned all kinds of new dance phrases such as: double dream hands crank it reach for the audience burst rain hands I’m so happy right now, I don’t know what to do with myself.

harvard sailing team video.

This video is hysterical.  Harvard Sailing team {a comedy troupe?} did a video of guys pretending to be a group of girls, and I almost wet myself watching.  Great time waster. Happy Weekend!

thrifted monopoly!

I am really skilled at Monopoly, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  Really skilled.  Remember how my parents are kind of hippies?  My family camped every summer for two weeks in random places along the west coast of the United States and I spent a lot of rainy days in Northern California inside our tent trailer wiping the floor with my siblings.  I’m what you call a Monopoly savant.  Girl’s got strategy. I’ve been on the prowl for quite…
