Book Review: The Woman In Black

Where do I even begin with this one?  Maybe I will just start with a brief summary of the book for y'all and then get right into business. Arthur Kipps is an up-and-coming London solicitor who is sent to Crythin Gifford—a faraway town in the windswept salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway—to attend the funeral … Continue reading Book Review: The Woman In Black

Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

I am not sure I am at the right place in my life to need/enjoy this book as much as others do.  It all seemed a little too "Dr. Phil with lots of cuss words" to me and not very much helpful information.  Maybe I have already mastered the subtle art of not giving a … Continue reading Book Review: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Book Review: Rosemary’s Baby

Rosemary's Baby has always been one of my favorite movies and actually ranks as one of my favorite horror movies, too.  There's just something about Roman Polanski's movie that captivated me so much growing up.  I was hesitant to read the book by Ira Levin because I was so familiar with the story.  I thought … Continue reading Book Review: Rosemary’s Baby

Book Review: Unqualified

I just love when Audible has the authors narrate their comedic novels or memoirs.  They wrote the book, so they definitely know how it sounded in their minds and can give it that perfect inflection, emphasis, loudness/quietness, etc.  Unqualified, by Anna Faris, is no exception from that.  Anna does a great job narrating in this … Continue reading Book Review: Unqualified

A Trip To The Dentist

I just recently had my quarterly teeth cleaning at the dentist.  Yes, quarterly.  It takes some work to have a flawless smile, you know.  Like many of you, I detest going to the dentist.  I even try to make it as painless and convenient as possible by selecting a dentist that is in the same … Continue reading A Trip To The Dentist

Life Coach: Mrs. Peacock

Clue is one of my all-time favorite movies. What's NOT to love about it?  There are so many quotable characters, witty one-liners, and animated performances.  I have always favored the female stars in this movie over the males: Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. White, and Miss Scarlet.  From the trio, let's take a look at what Mrs. … Continue reading Life Coach: Mrs. Peacock

10 Minutes A Day To Less Stress

Raise your hand if you are stressed out.  Did you raise your hand?  If not, slap yo'self!  If you are one of the lucky few who seem to never get stressed then I applaud you.  For the rest of us it seems like there is always something out there stressing us to the max.  "Am … Continue reading 10 Minutes A Day To Less Stress

When I Have Long Fingernails

I was forced to make an informal resolution this year: stop biting my nails.  I have been a nailbiter my entire life, so I knew it was going to be difficult.  But I have been bite free for a little over two months now.  My fingers still feel weird as my nails get longer and I constantly … Continue reading When I Have Long Fingernails

Attack of the Jellyfish

I would like, if I may, to take you on a strange journey.  The year: 1996.  I was only 10 years old and I was summering with my family at our old beach house.  That was the summer the United States hosted the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia.  It was also the last summer I would … Continue reading Attack of the Jellyfish

Leap Day: Make It Count

Hooray for an extra day!  But why can't it be a Saturday instead of a Monday?  Ugh.  2016 has a leap year, so there is an extra day in February.  We get a leap year every 4 years based on the fact that a complete orbit of the earth around our sun takes exactly 365.2422 days to complete. … Continue reading Leap Day: Make It Count
