Let’s Talk About Zero Dark Thirty

Much like Les Misérables, Zero Dark Thirty is another movie that I had began writing a blog post about but never finished.  Jay and I saw it at the end of January.  Let me just get this out of the way first:  I loved Zero Dark Thirty.  The acting was spectacular.  I was involved from the […]

Let’s Talk about the Les Misérables Movie

Note: I started writing this back at the end of December and was going to finish it during my 8 hours of downtime when I went to Minnesota.  However, not having Internet in my hotel room and the lure of the Mall of America prevented that from happening.  Thanks to my insane workweeks in January […]

New Les Misérables Trailer!!

I just watched the new Les Misérables trailer. Shoutout to my sister Katelyn for sending me the link to it.  Much like the first one that came out like 6 months ago, I cried while watching it.  I also cried all 3 times that I saw Les Mis on Broadway (and only one of those […]

Of Museums and Movies

Man, I’m bummed that my nice, long weekend is over.  Even though it didn’t go exactly according to plan, I still had a really good weekend.  Since it ended up raining on Friday, Jay and I didn’t end up going to the beach.  Instead, we walked around Downtown Raleigh and visited the Museum of Natural […]

Chatty Monday

Oh, Monday.  I have such a love/hate relationship with Mondays.  I hate them because it means the start of another work week, but I love them because they tend to be the “quietest” day of my week.  Most people get caught up for the week on Friday; I’m lucky enough to be able to get […]

There has got to be a better way to say that.

Really, AP? And P.S. I’m really glad that Kim Kardashian was entitled to uphold the sanctity of marriage.  Meanwhile, the gays still don’t have the right to marry and divorce for money in under 80 days.  Classy.  Klassy.  Classy.
