So Many Oranges

I was having a really hard time trying to come up with something to write about today. I realized that it was because I’m on reading week and thus far from the people that normally irritate me, ie. my peers. So then I thought I would tell you all about my reading week, but I then realized that I have done very little of interest this week. Basically, I’ve slept a lot and eaten way too many oranges. You may think that eating too many oranges is not really a thing, but I’ve already had three today. I will probably have at least one more. Continue reading

I have been watching a lot of Gilmore Girls lately. I’m not sure why exactly, don’t ask. I’m sure, for all of you out there who have seen the show, you’re aware that the characters on the show speak incredibly quickly. For those of you who have not seen the show before, now you know. So, you know, there. Continue reading

I’m From the Bush

Julia and I went to see Pitch Perfect earlier this week with our wonderful sister-in-law. It was a really great movie, but more on that later this week. In summary, I highly recommend.

Anyway, my favourite part of the movie was by far Rebel Wilson, who is truly hilarious. Here’s her interview with Ellen for proof:

New in shameful addictions

This time it’s not One Direction. Oh no it’s worse. This time I find myself becoming addicted to Cougar Town. I know it’s been on for quite a few seasons and is potentially in its last right now, but I’m only watching it now because I tried for so long to resist it. I used to lump Cougar Town, funnily enough, in the same category as Gilmour Girls. It was kind of funny, kind of enjoyable, but kind of melted your brain the longer you watched it. In short, I just never fully could get into it. Continue reading

London Longing

The latest episode of The Bachelorette and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee have spurred on a longing for London, England in me. If you haven’t been, let me tell you that London is a wonderful place (re: exorbitantly expensive, rainy, pigeon-infested, and oddly enchanting) full of excellent television and the best subway system ever. I’m serious. I would move to London for Channel 4 and BBC alone. And the subway system is glorious in that it has more than two lines, it’s clean, it’s bright, and each stop is decorated in cool, artistic ways. It also speaks to you in a charming British accent. “Mind the gap!” Continue reading

The British Are Better

I have said many times that British things are better. Better than what, you ask? Everything. Just better. This is of course not actually true. Their teeth are much, much worse. Worse than what, you ask? Worse than everything. In any case, I will now give you video evidence of British people being better. Better than what, you ask? I’ve already answered that. Stop asking. Continue reading

Perhaps this is old news but BRANGELINA ENGAGED!

According to the very reputable Hamilton Spectator (is that true? I don’t know, I’m not from there), Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are in fact engaged, as confirmed by his manager, “and yes, she confirms that Brad designed the ring.” I’m not sure why that’s such an incredibly important detail – perhaps Brad Pitt will now foray into designing jewelery and leave acting and his hoards of children behind? Continue reading

Fame! (And I don’t mean the 80s television series)

I have decided that I am going to be the most famous non-famous person out there. What I mean by that is that I will be famous for doing absolutely nothing. The ultimate goal is to be on Ellen some day, because, I mean really, she is the queen of day time talk show television, especially since Oprah retired to build her empire/slowly take over the world. But really, was there ever any competition? No, there wasn’t. Continue reading

What a Terrible Photo

On “Oh No They Didn’t” (http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/), I read an article about the Wikipedia pictures for celebrities and how they always pick horrible photos. At first, I was a little skeptical. They had a picture of Emma Stone that really wasn’t that bad at all, so I didn’t really believe them. But then I started looking up some famous people and I realized that they were right. Most of them are awful! Continue reading

The extraordinary and perhaps bewildering power of Ellen DeGeneres

Ellen DeGeneres has a power Oprah only wishes she had. Oprah who has turned herself into a brand in order to win the favour of Americans has less power than Ellen “Dori” The CoverGirl DeGeneres. Truth.

And here is my proof: Ellen can make you like almost anyone, whereas Oprah makes you mostly just dislike her. (Seriously, Oprah! You’re not a medical expert! Perhaps I’m unclear on the premise of a talk show, but it’s not really your opinion that matters, am I right, Oprah, the host?) Continue reading
