Freaky Friday

Jamie Lee Curtis – she’s the mother, she’s the daughter, she’s the mother in the daughter’s body, she’s the daughter in the mother’s body?  Whatever!  Gosh, role reversal comedies are confusing!

She jams at The House of Blues with your garage band, tells your creepy English teacher to take a hike, hops on a Harley for a love ride with the dreamy boy you’re bonkers about and smooches him good – even if it is with her lips, not yours!

 

Mean Girls

Amy Poehler is alpha Plastic Regina George’s “cool mom” in Tina Fey’s screenplay.

What kind of mother flaunts her breast implants, talks trash with your gal friends and offers you an afternoon cocktail?

Hey, don’t judge – it keeps her feeling young! […]

Need Sleep? 7 MORE Tips!

27 Sep

 

We all need sleep. Especially before we die.  And when there’s nothing left to watch on TV or YouTube.

7 MORE Tips!

1 – Don’t eat an additional large meal after dinner or for two hours before going to bed. This will make your evening so boring, you’re more likely to nod off.

2 – Flush your cell phone down the toilet. I know… blasphemy!

3 –  Don’t let the cat nap during the day – at all.  This is a biggie. Perhaps caffeine in the catnip?

4 – A day chock full of multi-tasking can fray your nerves. Picture a pinball machine on steroids… that’s your brain. Chewing gum and (insert ONE activity) is the only good multi-tasking option.  (TIP: Chewing gum and flossing – not a good choice.)

5 – Family members can be noisy. Fake a business trip and go to a hotel.  This can prove to be expensive. […]
