Weekly Wrap Up – 1/16/15

16 Jan

Here’s some cool stuff I found on the internet this week.


Survey Says…

According to a survey commissioned by My Fit Foods, 57% of Americans admit to breaking their New Year’s Resolutions within the first month. 83% have broken a resolution to eat healthier. So good news, you’re not alone! I know I make those same resolutions every year, and break them as soon as I see cake. I guess there’s a lesson here about how you can start healthier eating habits at any time, but I’m going to go with feeling like I’m in good company with all you other cake eaters.


A Day in the Life

Are you looking for definitive proof that Anna Kendrick has a much better life than you do? Well InStyle has you covered! Check out a day in Anna Kendrick’s life to feel much worse about your own.


Type-A Bootcamp

This weekend I’m heading to Vegas for the Type-A Bootcamp. I’ll be leading a round table discussion on how bloggers can work with agencies for next level partnerships. I love speaking at conferences like this, and not only because I love the sound of my own voice. I really love helping bloggers up their game and build better relationships with agencies.


Happy Gotcha Day, Bear!

Four years ago this week I decided to foster a sweet Pomeranian. I think we all know how that one turned out. I couldn’t imagine my life without this precious baby fluff. I’ve been cooing over him all day – I think he’s ready for his Gotcha Day to be over. ;)

About Last Night – 1/15/15

16 Jan

I’ve barely had time to watch TV this week, and that makes me kind of cranky. But here’s what I caught up on last night.

Modern Family

Jay is potty training that baby, Lily is being a clown, and Claire wants the tacky neighbors to get rid of their boat. Listen, Claire, ignore Phil’s stupid advice. Take that nonsense right to the city with a complaint. You can’t just park a tacky boat in the driveway forever. That’s why we have HOA’s.

The Simpsons

Homer gets hypnotized and turned into a ten year old, who becomes Bart’s best friend. A pretty basic episode, but still good.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Terry’s having another baby! Jake finds out and promises not to tell anyone. So naturally he emails everyone. Captain Holt and Santiago work a cold case together, and it’s amazing. Pretty much everything Captain Holt does is amazing.

About Last Night – 1/14/15

15 Jan

What up party people? Let’s get to it!

Ground Floor

Harvard’s relationship with the redhead is heating up, which is kind of weird and uncomfortable to watch. Like, you want to turn away, but you just can’t. In a good way. Brody and Jenny go head to head in a basketball tournament, and when Jenny gets hurt Brody goes for the winning shot. And here’s why Jenny is the best woman on television, she’s not mad and says she would have done the same thing. Go Jenny! The ending is one of those so-sweet-it-hurts-your-teeth moments when Mansfield helps Jenny achieve one of her goals.

Cougar Town

Laurie wants to name her baby after a Reba song. “Fancy” is a great song, terrible baby name. Then, because this is Cougar Town Laurie goes into labor at a Civil War reenactment. Travis still looks about 14, so it’s weird to me that he has a kid. Is Bobby being written out of the show? It seems weird to do that in the last season, but it looks like he’s moving to Georgia.

The Middle

Tonight it’s all about work. Axl gets a lesson in work ethic from Mike’s dad, Sue gets a job at the quarry, and Frankie has to go back to the car dealership to ask her old boss to reissue an expired check. Then Sue and her stupid friends make terrible choices and end up throwing a big party at the quarry on a Saturday night. But Axl and Frankie’s things work out well, so that’s good.

About Last Night – 1/8/15

9 Jan

What up, Thursday night CBS sitcoms?

The Big Bang Theory

Since the guys always pick the groups’ activities, Leonard and Sheldon agree to let Amy and Penny decide what they all do this evening. The girls go shopping and make the guys sit in chairs and hold their purses. Since there’s no cell service, there’s a funny bit where Sheldon and Leonard play invisible Risk. Then they got all emotional and real and it almost made me cry. No spoilers, just watch for yourself. Then Penny lets Amy decide what they do and they all end up weaving baskets. Now I kind of want to go basket weaving. Oh yeah, and Raj and Howard and Bernadette have something going on that I didn’t really care about.

Mom

We kick off in a meeting with a guy sharing about a horrible date he went on (Kristie) who had a nightmare mother (Bonnie) and she’s such a mess her sponsor must be awful (Marjorie). Kristie meets a cute single neighbor doing laundry and Bonnie has a run in with Alvin’s ex-wife. Alvin does not handle it well. And Kristie’s seemingly great guy turns out to be… not quite what she’s looking for.

The McCarthys

Jane Kaczmarek guest stars as Marjorie’s sister and she actually looks a lot like Laurie Metcalf. Weird. At any rate, Marjorie’s sister and her family are coming to visit, and the two families are wildly competitive. And, as usual, it was wildly hilarious. Seriously, can we give Laurie Metcalf all the Emmys? Right now? If you’re not watching the show I don’t know what you’re doing with your life.

People’s Choice Awards 2015

8 Jan

It’s here! It’s here! It’s here! Award Season is finally here! Things kicked off last night with the People’s Choice Awards.

Allison Janney and Anna Faris hosted. Now, I like Anna and I love Allison, but this show got off to a really awkward start. Their opener was very stilted and the jokes fell flat.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting quipped that giving an award to a woman was part of her apology tour. I thought it was funny, but I guess the audience didn’t because no one laughed. I laughed, Kaley. I laughed.

Dax Shepard was funny, but that’s kind of like saying that night is dark. Yeah, we all know. (Breaking: Teddy is cute and fluffy.)

Why couldn’t this have started at 8pm? I’m tired.
