3 Things:  Super Bowl 50

3 Things: Super Bowl 50

After weeks of not watching football (I live in Patriots country and I'm a Steelers girl--we only get one or two Steelers games a season up here.), it's time for the Super Bowl!

Movie Love: Romantic Films That Aren’t Cookie Cutter

Traditional rom-coms just don’t do it for me, even in the month of l'amour. Cookie cutter scripts and treacly meet-cutes? Not today, Satan.

The May-December romance: Harold and Maude If you haven’t seen this cult…

3 Things: Netflix and Chill

Bonus points if you got that reference... I'm in my wintery cocoon and typically only leave the house on weekends if I absolutely have to. Which means NETFLIX!

3 Things:  Fall TV

3 Things: Fall TV

Fall shows are going strong and I'm still looking for new shows to replace old favorites that finished their run last year. So far I'm watching Blindspot. I meant to watch Quantico but then I forgot about it completely and now I'm out before I was ever in. I'm horrible for keeping track of and watching new shows. It doesn't…

It's Halloween and that means one thing: time for another Scary Movies series! I fear technology. I'm pretty open about it and I live in terror for the day that my iPhone becomes self-aware. I'm sure it's going to happen about any day now and I pretty much refuse to engage Siri. Every time I hear on the news about…

Scary Movie Series: Evil Babies

It's Halloween and that means one thing: time for another Scary Movies series! So your baby is the anti-Christ or a lesser demon... I don't have kids. I probably won't have any, either--I'm at that age where I probably have about 5 eggs left and they're not exactly the over-achievers that are going to attend Yale should I fertilize them.…
