What I Learned This Weekend

I had a fabulous weekend. Hope you all did too! Here's a weekend recap "What I Learned" style:

  • Virginia is even more awesome in person than her blog leads you to believe.

  • If John McCain becomes President, it's because no one was listening to a word he said. They were all focused on the facial abnormality jutting from the left side of his face. Has anyone else noticed this?

  • When visiting rich people in gated communities, be aware that the security guards may be dressed as if they're on safari. Hat and all.

  • An anti-Superbowl party for two can be just as fun as a Superbowl party. Halftime show listening to the great Tom Petty, movies, pizza and more. Who needs football?

  • I won the Best Big Blog category in the 20 Something Blogger Awards. Holy cow! Thanks guys!!

  • Dane Cook is not a great actor, but he needs to have a spot in my Top 5.

  • Ben & Jerry's Half Baked ice cream really is that good.

  • 3M makes non-slip pads for the bottom of heels/boots. They totally up-sold me at Baker's when I bought new boots this weekend. I'm a sucker.

  • My cat, Holly, has magical powers and can get into my purse and pull out whatever she fancies. I'm talking anything, even if the purse is half zipped and what she is after is at the bottom stuffed between my wallet and cell phone. Opposable thumb, who needs that?

  • I want Jessica Alba's body. (OK to clarify - PRE-pregnancy Jessica!!)

  • Apparently I didn't know the correct lyrics to Benny & the Jets. But I've decided to make it my new ring tone after seeing 27 Dresses. Is that scene not the best?

  • The 4th season of The L-Word came out on DVD.

  • I am an exceptional player of Scramble - the new game on Facebook that is much like Boggle. 1st place in the live games? But of course. Move over Scrabulous, I've found my new best friend.

  • Washing cashmere can be done without ruining the sweater, however be prepared for de-linting everything you own.

  • I will never look at penguins the same after seeing the unrated edition of Good Luck Chuck. Stuffed penguins + Dane Cook = hilarious yet disturbing sex scenes.

  • And just this morning: my favorite radio station marries couples at White Castle every year on Valentine's Day. The officiator? Reverend Slider. Disturbing, no? Excuse me while I go sign up.

Happy Monday!

Half-Baked is the sweet sweet nectar of the gods.

courtney said...

"excuse me while i go sign up."

HAHA! You make me giggle.

I am in LOVE with Good Luck Chuck. I've never seen the unrated though. That bad? :)

Maria said...

1218Blog said...

Congrats on being a big damn deal! Also I want Jessica Alba's body. Even pregnant she is skinnier than I am. WTF!

Yoda said...

Jessica Alba's preggers.

You want a baby inside you? I knew the mommy side would kick in one of these days ...

:-p

Nilsa S. said...

Congrats on the award! If I were of age, I would've voted for you, though clearly you didn't need my vote!

theselittlemoments said...

She's probably going to look just as great pregnant too. Did you see Kerri Russel when she was pregnant. Looked like an elegant model. So not fair. Guaranteed I will be a giant boat!

ttcmb said...

Congrats on the blog award! I want to see 27 dresses, still haven't had the chance.

t.b.f.love. said...

Mmmm Ben & Jerry's Half Baked is my favorite ice cream. Along with Haagen Das Mayan Chocolate. But that scene in 27 dresses? So awesome.

Angela said...

Congrats on your big win! :)

And I have got to get my hands on some of those non-slip pads for my shoes, because I am a slipping fool!

each of the two said...

i tried to explain white castle to my man, no dice.

and i want Alba's body NOW! preggers and all, as reference to my post.

The lump on the side of McCain's face is from cancer treatments he had a few years ago.

Julie said...

You're welcome... I mean Congrats!!!

Um. Getting married at White Castle??
Can I come?

B2G said...

My favorite part of Good Luck Chuck is when he asks why she loves penguins and she's all, "I don't know, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE 'EM!!!!!!" And it is so scary. But hilarious.

Princess Pointful said...

Congrats on the award, my dear!
But I'm not feeling you on Mr. Cook, I must admit...

Passionista said...

I love half baked ice cream! It's my favorite flavor :)

Lacey Bean said...

Congrats on the 20SB award!!! :) You rock!!

Fun weekend, love all your bullet points! :)

Maxie said...

That scene of w/ bennie and the jets WAS awesome.

The movie was great, but that totally took it up a notch.

So@24 said...

Have you tried Ben and Jerry's Crem Bruele?

I seriously dont know how they do it

Sara said...

This is completely un-related to this post, but.... I just now found out you were from Columbus and I feel connected now.

O-H!

Slightly Disorganized said...

honestly, he looked like an extra from disney's jungle cruise.

safari for the rich. riiiight.

Trish Ryan said...

I can't wait to see 27 Dresses. Must round up girlfriends immediately. And please pass along tips for washing cashmere...

brookem said...

So much to comment on! I think we dig the same type of men- as I like many in your top five, and much approve of the new Dane Cook addition (more for his humor than his looks, although he does have a good HOH, and all that in combo is good in my book!). Tom Petty rocked, huh? I just got tickets to see him this summer. And my cat does the same thing with the purse!

brookem said...

Oh, and congrats!

Eve said...

Married at White Castle? Ew!

Hiya, I'm Kristie. said...

Congrats! You really ARE a big deal!! :)

Oh, and I'd get married in a WHite Castle. In fact, I'd marry White Castle itself. They need to build one down here in Texas!

ana said...

congratulations on the award.

Tina Vaziri said...

Glad you had a great non-football weekend too, and congrats, and my cat opens closed dresser drawers and pulls out all of the clothes when he's mad.

thecasualperfectionist.com said...

Congrats on your win!! That's awesome!! :)

Surfergrrl said...

Congrats on the award! and i want her body too..pre preggers of course. (and probably post preggers as well)

Therapeutic Ramblings said...

Well deserved 20SB award!

McCain is scary.

Gated communities are great, except when they refuse to let you in, even if you live there. Been there, done that.

I want Jessica Alba's body....on mine.

Dane Cook absolutely violates the penguin, but it is really funny!

valediction said...

congrats on the award and here's to the glory that is half baked!

andrea said...

John McCain seemed to come out of nowhere. Now he's ruling the GOP race. I can't take it.

I've never been to White Castle, there are none near Pittsburgh. Are they that good?

Congrats on the award!

heidikins said...

I pink puffy heart B&J's Half Baked... and just for the record, the frozen yogurt low-fat version? It's just as amazing!!

xox

Bhanu said...
