15 Thing Friday

1. It’s Friday.

If you say so.

2. I just found out that Dr. Robert Ballard will be speaking at our university in the spring. I am so incredibly beyond excited. He led the team that originally discovered the Titanic wreckage. The man FOUND THE TITANIC. I cannot wait.

3. Good news! NASA says the world won’t end in two weeks.  Because I’m still waiting for them to accept my astronaut application, I’m going to play it safe and say they are always right. Call me!

4. Although I have no desire to see the new Tom Cruise movie “Jack Reacher,” the song in the trailer is excellent for running.

5.  Did this movie come out? Was it good? I feel like I never heard a word about it.

6.  At long last, this is happening.

7.  45 Things We Should Just Forget About 2012

8. Speaking of issues with the English language, this graced my Facebook feed recently:

I wonder what kind of presents the baby brought? Frankincense and Myrrh? ‘Tis the season!

9. Because this is always true:

God, I hate when people keep talking to me when I’m reading. Especially strangers. I’m not just looking at these words hoping someone I don’t know will come along to bother me.

10.  20 Spectacularly Nerdy Science Jokes

11. Still Friday.

12. After spending $200 on groceries, this is my fridge:

Butter, cheese, eggs, and gin. I think I’m doing it wrong.

13. Peanut Butter Chocolate Dessert. I want this. Right now.

14. Grumplepuss says hi.

15. Have a great Friday!

  1. There is a girl on my FB who was apparently going to a lot of bonfires in the summer, and every Friday she would post an update saying “Going to another BOMB FIRE TONIGHT! Can’t wait!” I wanted to comment and say “Friend it is bon fire. It’s BON. FIRE.” Come on. Idiots.

    I’ve never even heard of that Bachelorette movie.

    Happy Friday Friend!

      Hahahaha, a bomb fire sounds quite dangerous!

    • Christine

      I doubt this is the case, but some of the girls I surf with use the word “bomb” to describe things; So yes, it could’ve been a “bomb fire”

      Bachelorette was like the darker, meaner, version of Bridesmaids. I liked it well enough….

  2. Now I want it too. And it doesn’t sound too hard to make. Thanks. You will be getting the melted leftovers in the mail. You will probably think it is Ebola.

  3. That desert does look good!

    Just kidding. I know it is dessert.

  4. LOL. That baby comment just made my day.

    Have you read the Reacher books? Tom Cruise as Jack NMI Reacher is ridiculosity. Loodakris.

  6. I remember seeing the preview for Bachelorette and then never hearing about it again. I wanted to see it because it would help me forget how hysterically unfunny my own bachelorette was.

    When your bachelorette party sucks, host your own re-do at a drag club ;) One of my mottos: I don’t wait for things to happen TO me; I MAKE things happen for me :)

    Wasn’t the Bachelorette already made – and called Bridesmaids?
    Friend of mine has ALWAYS said ideal instead of idea. “What a great ideal!” Argh! And I can’t correct her now, she’s been doing this for over 20 years. Oops.

  9. Samantha

    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, and I just have to say – it puts me in such a happy place : ) When I’m too busy to read for a week, I get so excited to catch up! You are just absolutely hilarious, and I thought it was time I drop you some love – and say thank you for making me laugh over and over!

    Also, I now want to go watch Titanic and Crazy,Stupid, Love. Tudaloo!

    My husband and I randomly ended up watching the Bachellorette movie a few weeks ago, and it’s basically the Hangover, with Chicks, and lots of cocaine and eating disorders. It’s kind of disturbing and depressing.

  11. Jen

    Someone commented on my friend’s Facebook status the other day and said “I have no patients for holiday shopping!” I replied and said “you get your patients to do your shopping? Are you a doctor?” She replied “no, I work at Metro (a grocery store in town).” Seriously considering suggesting that friend unfriend this idiot, both on FB and in real life.

  12. I thought Bachelorette was amazingly inappropriate and totally hilarious. Kirsten Dunst plays the best bitch ever. Go watch it!

  13. Victoria

    Especially on airplanes. My face is in a book so I don’t have to talk to you. Now stop interrupting me for the ENTIRE FLIGHT.

  14. Aneida

    I thought Bachelorette was pretty depressing and not very funny at all. I was disappointed. I guess my expectations were set too high. If you watch it without expecting to laugh until your stomach hurts, it’s an ok movie.

  15. Jenny

    I watched Bachelorette online, and did not like it. I found it depressing, not that funny, and kind of mean-spirited. But I guess it was advertised as a dark comedy… so maybe I should have realized it wasn’t going to be funny.

    Happy Friday!

  16. Nina

    I watched Bachelorette and kind of found it hilarious. Maybe it was all the wine I drank while watching it, or just having it make me feel better at my life, I got a good laugh out of it with some girlfriends. Even my mom thought it was somewhat entertaining. Isla Fisher cracks me up how crazy she is the entire movie. Her role alone made me laugh. I say give it a shot!

  17. Justin

    Jt is such a beast

  18. Butter, cheese, eggs, gin? I think you’re doing it right! You may have just found a secret. You’re making eggnog, right?

  19. Tess

    I have never see the Bachelorette but it’s not really my kind of humor. I’m humorless. :( I have learned over time the constant grammar and spelling errors may drive me insane but it’s not worth hurting someone’s feelings so I don’t say anything. It does though. Drive me insane. Especially when some (most!) of these people are college graduates and I am not. Frustration.

  20. I saw Bachelorette- not as funny as Bridesmaids, but still enjoyable. Plus I would just do about anything to look at James Marsden.

  21. I watched Bachelorette twice (because I paid $10 to demand that shit and had to make sure I got my money’s worth). Also, Chelsea Handler said it was super funny and I blindly followed her endorsement.

    The first time I watched it, I found it to be mildly funny and pretty dark. The second time it got much better. It’s definitely aimed at a specific kind of humor not many people have.

  22. Gotta say, I’m digging the gratuitous shirtless gifts. Much needed this Friday.

  23. Hey!
    I actually thought bachelorette was hysterical! Totally over the top and inappropriate but it’s a movie! It made me laugh :)

  24. I too saw Anna this weekend and felt myself melt in Aaron Taylor-Wood’s blue eyes. I mean woaaaa. Naturally I googled, IMDB’d, and wiki’ed everything about him and found this weird excperpt: “Johnson began a relationship with his Nowhere Boy director, Sam Taylor-Wood, who is 23 years older, on the 2009 set of the film.[15] The couple announced their engagement at the film’s premiere in October 2009.[16] They married on 21 June 2012 and both took the name Taylor-Johnson.[17] The couple have two daughters together born prior to their marriage: Wylda Rae (b. 2010)[18] and Romy Hero (b. 2012).[19][20] Through his marriage, Johnson is also a stepfather to Taylor-Wood’s older daughters, Angelica (b. 1997) and Jessie (b. 2006).[15]”

    His wife is mega old and weird and he is the step father to a gaggle of children. #bummer.

    bachelorette was HILARIOUS – you should watch it. Seriously.
