My Little Problem With The Big Sick

  So the other day, I watched the romantic comedy The Big Sick! I’d been wanting to see this movie for a long time, basically since it first came out and was immediately heralded by critics. Now, if you know anything about the movie, you know that it’s the true story of the early[…]

GOOD NEWS! Life Is Back To Abnormal!

This was taken at DragCon last weekend (or the weekend before that? Gosh, time is flying) which is why there’s a pink carpet behind me. Duh!   So like I said, this week is flying by! I’ve been helping out at the studio, despite catching a milder version of my[…]

Carrie’s Side

Mom: “Hi Carrie, how was school today?” Carrie:  “Fine.  We drew pictures of our families…but I’m worried about my friend Cindy.” Mom:  Oh?  Why is that? Carrie: “Well, it was Tyler’s birthday today, so his dad brought in cupcakes, but Cindy couldn’t have any.  She had to sit in the[…]

Field Guide to Female Friendships

  Women!  Who can begin to understand them?  Male philosophers, psychoanalysts and stand-up comedians have tried to comprehend and explain the way the female brain works.  If these men of science have such difficulty understanding women, what hope is there for mere women?  The resulting paradox is that many women[…]

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa: I don’t ask for much in the way of gifts and presents, because what I really want can’t sit under the tree with a shiny red bow on top.  Santa, if you think (as I do) that I’ve been good this year, I will be even better next[…]

Background

So, I posted here that a couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to perform as “background” on a pilot that was shooting in NYC!  Here’s what I learned: CONGRATULATIONS!  You’ve been cast as WOMAN AT BAR in the exciting pilot production of UNTITLED PILOT TBA !!!  You’ve got a[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Apocalypse NO

The apocalypse is no fun, people.  Shit goes down, you gotta have a seriously good crew.  This week, we have the opportunity to assemble our apocalypse-proof posse to help us through these trying times. 1.  Buffy Summers  has survived how many apocalypses now?  She’s basically a pro at this.  I[…]

5 Fandom Friday: You Said It

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday is inspired by la langue de geek, it’s those geeky phrases by which we all identify each other and converse by droppin catchphrases yo! 1.  “It’s in the frackin’ ship!”  oh man, this more than probably any is my favourite to whip out during parties. […]

How I Want To Spend My Summer Vacation

What a ride the past nine months have been!  It felt so much longer.  I got incredibly drunk (one – ONE frozen mojito!) after school with my coworkers on Tuesday to put the year behind me and look forward to this summer.  Of course, I’m looking for a new job[…]

5 Fandom Friday: On The BIG Screen!

Sooo, Hollywood is all about making movies of things.  And TV series.  And that’s terrible.  ART IS ART!  Okay?  Comics are a medium unto themselves.  Who ever suggested making a pilot of the Mona Lisa, or turning Starry Night into a blockbuster?  I can’t even wrap my head around how[…]

5 Fandom Friday: OH MAMA!

In honor of Mother’s Day (probably?) let’s dish on favourite moms!  Kinda weird, but okay… 1.  Joyce Summers  was the coolest of the cool teenage vampire slayers’ moms.  Sure, Buffy and her’s relationship wasn’t always perfect, but she stuck up for her daughter and was pretty badass in her own[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Comfort Films

I am so excited for this week because as soon as I saw the prompt, I knew exactly which films I was going to write about.  So does this mean “comfort films” are a thing?  Because I definitely have some movies I’ve watched over and over again to the point[…]

5 Fandom Friday: FBFF’s

Like, if these people actually existed, we’d totally be best friends in real life because how could we not? 1. & 2.  Willow & Xander from Buffy the Vampire Slayer  are the coolest people in the whole of the world forever and ever amen.  If you don’t get along with[…]

5 Fandom Friday: I Shall Name You…

This was a fun prompt to think about!  There are so many awesome names out there that I had a hard time culling the list down to just five!  I can’t wait to see everyone else’s answers!  I got a little fancy and picked two people-names, an animal name, a[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Funko POP!

I can only imagine collecting Funko POP! figures would be a very, very slippery slope for me.  For one thing, I have very limited storage-display space in my home.  For another thing, they’re all so cute!  This year, they’re rolling out figures of some of my favourite fandoms and I[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Christmas Movies

1.  A Charlie Brown Christmas  you knew I was gonna bust this one out right out of the gate.  My Snoopy love is well-known and this has all the elements:  Charlie Brown feeling bad for himself, Lucy charging five cents for Psychiatric Help, Snoopy mackin’ on the ladies…and the most[…]

Enh, What’s Up, Diane? Ice Cream

ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION:  it has recently come to my attention that Diane Keaton, aka TheGreatestStarOfAll, likes to dip carrots in peanut butter.Class, can we think of anyone else who does this?  OH WAIT.  ME.  That’s right. And while I may cringe at the thought of carrots in ice cream, peanut[…]

5 Fandom Friday: Halloween Movies

Time again for more 5 Fandom Friday with The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick!  This week’s topic is Halloween movies you must see – which is hard because I don’t really have many!  I could only think of three that I *MUST* see every year: 1.  It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie[…]
