Wednesday Words : Favorite Websites

This month’s list of favorite things is all about websites.  So here we go!

Imdb.com – I love that at any time I can look up an actor find out what they’ve been up to, settle a disagreement about a movie or tv show, and view trailers. Today we were watching The Bodyguard and I thought, “I wonder what the guy who played the little boy Fletcher looks like now…” Thanks to IMDB, I know. 🙂



Instagram.com – I’m a photo junkie. Always have been. I love that IG is kind of mix of Twitter with pictures but without the bullshit drama often found on Facebook. I get to follow adorable animals, celebrities, fellow crafters, and all sorts of people. Plus, the IG community is kind of amazing.  (My IG link is in the sidebar.)

Facebook.com – Time suck galore, but I love being able to connect with people all over the world so easily.

Google.com – The Google is my friend. 

Ravelry.com – Knitting/crochet community, database, pattern resource etc. much like Pinterest, it can be a massive time suck that avtually takes away from actual crafting… But I love being a le to search for patterns and see what other people are making. 

Goodreads.com – I love being able to keep track of how many books I read each year, find new books to read, save lists of book I want to read, and occasionally write a review if I feel like it. 🙂 

Oh and two bonus sites that make me giggle til I cry…

Damnyouautocorrect.com – I can’t go to this site often because I laugh so hard it hurts. Seriously, best mood enhancer ever.

Stuffonmycat.com – I used to visit this one daily. It’s just silly goodness. 🙂 

Happy surfing!

Wed Words: Actors & Actresses

It’s time for a favorites list! This time I only struggled a little. LOL We’re supposed to share our favorite actors and actresses but I specifically tried to choose people this time that I haven’t gushed over before. Because yeah, we’ve already done celebrity crush type posts and I could just list all of the same peeps again. So here are several people that I love like whoa. The ladies are up first, then the boys. 🙂

Mae Wittman.  I’ve loved her since she was an adorable child actor and still love her now that she’s all grown up.  She’s adorable and a great actress. Look for her in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Parenthood.

Rose Byrne.  Honestly, I can’t name more than a few things off the top of my head that Rose has been in, but I love her. I think she’s gorgeous and I love her voice and she was freaking hilarious in Neighbors.  I’m looking forward to seeing her in the new Annie remake. 🙂

IMG_0626.JPG

Emma Stone.  She’s perfection.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in anything that I’ve disliked.  I’m also amazed that she looks good in absolutely any hair color.  Did you know she’s a natural blonde?! 🙂

IMG_0622.JPG

Diane Lane.  I’ve been in love with her forever.  She’s gorgeous and sexy and amazingly talented.  Adore!

IMG_0627.JPG

Jennifer Lawrence.  I love her.  That’s all. 🙂

IMG_0617.JPG

Miles Teller.  The first time I saw this kid he was in the remake of Footloose as Willard.  I laughed so hard during his learning to dance scene that I snorted.  I’ve loved everything he’s been in (although it’s SO hard for me to watch him as a mean guy in Divergent!).  He’s a great actor.

IMG_0628.JPG

Chris Pratt.  I’m so happy for this guy!  I have loved him since he was on Everwood and have always thought he was just this amazing actor… so for him to finally find so much success this year with Guardians of the Galaxy makes me so damn happy!

Luke Evans.  *swoon* I can’t say how much I love him.  He’s just gorgeous and sexy and British and yeah… looove! I still need to see Dracula Untold. Yum! He’s also the only reason I want to see the Hobbit movies. :p

IMG_0620.JPG

Adam Driver. I’ve only seen him in one movie that I can remember.  But this guy was so good in This Is Where I Leave You that I want to see everything he’s been in.  Plus he’s going to be in the new Star Wars so yay!  (No, I’m not one of those Star Wars fans who is all bitchy whiny about the new movies… I’m actually excited, so take that!).

IMG_0621.JPG

Henry Cavill.  Again, I’ve only seen one of his movies, Man of Steel, but I fell in looooove with him, and not just because he’s ridiculously hot.  Despite what my niece and nephew think, I thought that Henry was the best Superman we’ve seen in a really long time.  I think he’s absolutely perfect for the role.

And there you have it! More people I love that I haven’t posted about a few dozen times. 🙂

Let’s see what the other girls have to share…

Wednesday Words: favorite Flicks

It’s time for another favorites post. This time we’re talking about our favorite movies. Have I mentioned how hard naming my favorites is for me to do? Yeah… Plus my landlord got a little crazy with the weed whacker today and cut our cable cord so I don’t have Wifi tonight. That means I’ll be posting via my phone and data plan… Grr. So this’ll probably be short.

I love movies. Love. Like, possibly more than I love books. I’ve been a movie junkie all my life and when I meet someone who doesn’t go see movies in the theater it really puzzles me. Yeah, I know that you can watch movies at home, but there’s something awesome about watching a movie in the theater on opening weekend with a full audience. I can vividly remember seeing the original Karate Kid and the crowd cheering when Daniel-San did the crane and kicked that bully’s ass in the tournament. That was a classic movie moment that was made even more awesome by the environment of the theater and the crowd.

Then of course there are book to movies and the midnight premieres. The Harry Potter premieres were all a blast and wouldn’t have been the same at home on DVD. Watching a film like HP with a theater full of people who love the series as much as you do is a wonderful thing.

So yep, I love movies. I’m also very weird so I have a very eclectic mix of favorites. Looking at my DVD’s I have a strange bunch of movies. Crossroads (Brittney Spears is one of my girlfriends and it’s a musical and features Anson Mount), Footloose (the remake… Dance movie, duh!), six of the Harry Potters, High School Musical 3 (music, dancing, Zac Efron), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (Angelina Jolie… Another girlfriend), Original Sin (Angie again and a really hot sex scene with Antonio Banderes), Phantom of the Opera (Gerry Butler and b’way), Practical Magic, City of Bones, Rent (my favorite b’way show), Step Up (1,2, and 4… Still need 3), 4 of the 5 Twilight’s, Under the Tuscan Sun, Love Actually (Diane Lane… Another girlfriend), The Holiday (Jude Law… Yum) Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas, and You Got Served (LOL, don’t hate!). So as you can see, I like chick flicks, dance movies, musicals, muppets, angels, and vampire/werewolves. LOL

Fave movies that I don’t own include Grease, Grease 2 (I don’t care if it’s lame, I love it!), Empire Records (“It’s Rex Manning Day!”), Finding Nemo, Lilo & Stitch, Real Steel, Man of Steel (oh Henry!!!), Goonies, Ten Things I Hate About You, A Knight’s Tale, Overboard, and Satisfaction to name a few.

Like I said, I’m an odd duck. 🙂

So tell me what your weirdest favorite movies are. 🙂 Then check out my girls to see what they like. I have a feeling their favorites are going to be waaaay different. Like Jane Austen type stuff and period pieces with castles and shit. LOL
