Potluck Friday

I'm always happy when it's Friday, but happy does not describe how i feel about it today. Oh what a week!!!

  1. Yes, that was me sitting in the theater opening day of Eclipse. Don't be jealous that my girl J-Loop won free tickets on the radio! It was AMAZING. Yeah, yeah. I know all the Twi-nerds are saying it's the best so far yada yada. But it really is. And it's not just a good Twilight movie, it's a good movie. I was impressed. I hope they keep this same director (this franchise changes directors more than Beyonce changes members of Destiny's Child). Of course, i still have some complaints:
    • Why oh why can't they just dye Rosalie's eyebrows? She looks like Madonna with that tacky blonde hair and big brown eye brows. Better yet, why can't they just let Rosalie have her naturally dark hair? Yeah, it's not in the book, but it's not also in the book that she's rocking out old-school 3 inch black eyebrows either.
    • Why does Jasper all of a sudden have a southern accent? Where the heck did that come from?
    • Jacob needs to be shirtless more. That's why i'm here people, to look at this half-naked 17 year-old shape shifting wolf. Work with me!
    • The more i watch, the more i'm convinced that Edward is the over-protective, hovering boyfriend that we would all want our daughters to stay away from. He reminds me of Fred Savage's character in the Lifetime movie, No one Would tell (where he kills DJ from Full House. sorry if i just ruined that for you).

  2. While waiting for Eclipse to start, i saw the funniest trailer. It was for Step Up...wait for it... wait for it....3D. NO, I AM NOT KIDDING. Someone spent their daddy's hard -earned money to pay to make a tacky no-star filled 3D dancing movie. Haven't we seen enough of this with: Step Up 1, Step Up 2, Save the Last Dance, Honey, (i could go on). I'm all about movies where white girls prove they can shake it (heck, i have tons of friends who could star in these movies) but do we really need another one, and does it need to be in 3 FREAKING D?!

  3. What ever happened to Bob the Builder? While scrolling through the toy aisle at Tar-jay the other day ( i like to prepare myself for the stuff i'm gonna have to buy River one day) i noticed that Bob the Builder was no where to be found. My best friend (aka Brown Girl or "Mexican") pointed out that Dora's friend Manny is all the rage now "and with the help of affirmative action, has replaced Bob the Builder." I am happy to report that i did find an array of black Barbie's that actually were my shade! Back in the day all the black Barbie's are what my momma would call "high-yellow." Examples of high yellow are my son, Halle Berry, my momma, one of my brothers. Basically it's house negroes. But Matel finally realized that the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice.

  4. I'm officially 6 months pregnant today!!! 3 more months and 18 more years to go!

  5. What is Re jamming this week? My boy Justin Bieber!!!! (don't hate, or judge). It's Bieber's "Somebody to Love."

There will be a different director for the Breaking Dawn movies. I don't get why they keep doing that. Glad to hear it's a good movie. I'm waiting a couple weeks before I go see it

I might be the biggest loser but the one kids show I think is the best is WordWorld on nephew watches it and I could watch it all day with him, River won't need it for awhile but it teaches kids how to spell.

Big Man is about your shade so would that make my future mix babies high yellow? Hmm?

Best part of the post:
But Matel finally realized that the blacker the berry the sweeter the crack me up.

Nothing better for my birthday than some pot luck! Thanks for the laugh and the Bieber jams. My friends hate on him, but I delightfully sing "Baby" to West.

ReRe said...

no!!! not another director. this eclipse guy rocks! and breaking dawn is my least fave, so i need a good director. boooo.

yes lil woman, your kiddos will be high yellow (or high yella -- as some folks say!)

brooke, it should be illegal for peeps to hate on the biebs! i was saddened when i heard on the radio that he possibly has a girlfriend

Um, I had no idea I had been so slack in reading some of my favorite bloggers. Congrats on the baby-on-the-way. I'll try to be more attentive!!

So I had somehow lost your blog for awhile there but I must say I'm so glad I found it again! I agree, Eclipse was freakin awesome!
And congrats on being pregnant! (Obviously I've been gone AWHILE!)
