Comedy films with class and wit are hard to come by.

Comedy films that are about people and relationships? Scarce!

Comedies that don’t insult our intelligence by embracing the lowest common denominator of crass taste and stupidity? Rare! […]

Cookie Controversy – Toss Those Cookies

Wrong!  Wrong!  Wrong!

What you ask?

Nuclear proliferation, injustice, human trafficking, belly fat?

Deep Summer thoughts while contemplating the sand between my toes

  • Do we really need Canine Intelligence Tests? This doggie competition has gone too far – I saw a “My Border Collie is smarter than your Cocker Spaniel” bumper sticker on a tricycle. Can’t we all agree? Dog breeds… they are ALL gifted.

FUN MOVIE: “Alice Through the Looking Glass!”

22 Jun

 

LOOKING for a FUN movie?

LOOK no further than Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” – the sequel to the blockbuster film “Alice in Wonderland.”

The combo of live-action and animation, exciting visual effects, adventure, surreal set design, fun characters, and lighthearted wordplay creates an amusing entertainment that’s hard to resist.

Screenwriter Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, Homeward Bound, Alice In Wonderland, Maleficent) crafted an intriguing tale (loosely based on Lewis Carroll’s book “Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There”) featuring a strong, independent Alice and your favorite witty characters from “Alice in Wonderland.”

You’ll love the clever humor, plus the puns and quips about “time.”

“Alice Through the Looking Glass!” is like a fun party we’re all invited to…

now, that’s my cup of tea 🙂 […]

  •  It’s a bad sign when your husband keeps a jug of antifreeze and an eye dropper in the kitchen.  Hint: Get a food tester. (Forensic Files)

 

  • When flying, your carry-on luggage should never weigh more than twice your body weight – unless you are on steroids.

 

  • It can be very expensive to wait for a flight out of McCarran Airport in Las Vegas. Flashing slot machines are as enticing as the seductive aroma of Cinnabon.

The Millennial Wedding Announcement

24 Jan

 

Millenial Wedding Announcement

 

Dear World:

In a bold display of independence, we (not our helicopter parents) are announcing our intention to marry partner and hold a wedding presentation to display our love (and like) for each other.

Where are we registered, you ask?

Why, thank you for inquiring!

We don’t believe in registering for a wedding presentation as we just aren’t into “things.” Like many Millennials, we subscribe to minimalism.

This is mostly because we lack the funds to buy cool stuff (thank you pathetic economy) but also because our heads explode when we see Granny’s living room and her floor-to-ceiling tchotchke collection.

We personally believe that everyone over the age of 40 is a hoarder and in need of a therapeutic intervention.

And so, instead of a cumbersome kitchen appliance or a random piece of cheesy art, perhaps you could buy us a generous gift certificate to Starbucks… that, or a house. We could use a house! (Is that a “thing?”) To be honest, we’re getting tired of living in our parents’ basements. We are incurring hearing damage due to the incessant hovering. […]
