TGIF / 22

I really wish I had some super exciting news for you guys this week, but I don't because I'm boring like that. It also might have something to do with the fact that I've been pushing a bunch of overtime at work so I haven't had the time for books and movies and fun things. Alas, the only real accomplishment I can be proud of is that I published one book review and scoured the interwebs for fun things in which to sidetrack myself. So yeah, I guess there's always that. God, I need a drink. Happy weekend to all and Happy Mother's Day to all you kick-ass mums out there! Peace.

Pop Culture!


  1. You are NOT boring :) I sucked this week at blog hopping, there's just not enough hours in the day for it all. That's crazy about Harper Lee. And oh my gosh, how awesome would going to zombie school be? The director said to go to a bar and check out the people leaving at 2am for reference when acting like a zombie...lmao.
    Happy weekend!

    1. Well I'm glad at least one person things I'm not dull! And yes, if I had known that zombie school was a thing, I totally would've enrolled. Sometimes I feel like these days a degree in zombiology would be more useful than my degree in International Relations! It's crazy!

  2. I was a Samantha fan as well.

    What did you think of the Ender's Game trailer? I actually haven't read the book, but the movie looked pretty interesting.

    One day we will get to see Jurassic Park 4.

    Hey, at least Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles aren't aliens anymore!

    1. I haven't read the book yet either but I thought the trailer looked pretty promising. I've really been getting more into sci-fi lately and so I think the movie will satiate my thirst for that genre.

      Jurassic Park! My latest and greatest obsession. I have mixed feelings on this one but who am I kidding? I'll probably still go and see it!

      This is true. But the remake just needs to die. Seriously.

  3. i must tattoo Dr. on my fore head tattoos designs


You stay classy now! And thanks for stopping by. But mostly stay classy.
