A Few Of My Favorite Things

Friday nights and Saturday mornings are typically my blog reading/celebrity gossip catch up days. Sometimes I find little gems that I want to share, but don't know how to work them into a regular post. So I think I'll be showing you a few of my favorite things that I've discovered throughout the week in a short post every weekend.


Time Magazine readers chose Pope Francis as Person Of The YearEntertainment Weekly chose Sandra Bullock as Entertainer Of The Year, People Magazine chose Adam Levine as Sexiest Man Alive, and Maxim Magazine chose Miley Cyrus to top their Hot 100 list.

I can't stand Bethenny Frankel or her show, but Joey Fatone was there and performed about ten seconds of 'N Sync's Bye Bye Bye dance. I love him.

The Mindy Projectmy absolute favorite comedy on TV, has terrible ratings and is going on hiatus between January 28 and April l. That does not sound good. My favorite episode so far has probably been You've Got Sext. This show is hilarious and smart and I love the entire cast, so of course this would happen to me. I'm still not over last year's cancellation of Happy Endings

I'm excited for HBO's new show Looking.

Barbara Walters is giving it one last go before retirement with her Most Fascinating People list. She's already revealed Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus, Prince George, the stars of Duck Dynasty, Robin Roberts, Kim and Kanye, Diana Nyad, Edward Snowden, and Pope Francis. You have to tune into the show on December 18 to find out who number one is. Any guesses? I always liked this stupid special. 

House of Cards season two premieres on Netflix on February 14. I know what I'm doing on Valentine's Day! So romantic.

A compilation album, Songs for The Philippines has been released on iTunes for $9.99, with all of the proceeds going to the Philippine Red Cross. I already have many of the 39 tracks, but it's such a good cause I bought it anyway. 

Joe Manganiello wrote a fitness book and showed how he went from this to this. Whoa.

Fifty Shades of Grey casting news: Marcia Gay Harden (who I love) as Christian's mom, Dr. Grey, and Rita Ora as Christian's sister, Mia. I'm curious who's going to play Elena, Christian's Mrs. Robinson/rapist. Filming began last week in Vancouver BC.

I'm in love with the perfection of James Franco and Seth Rogen's Bound 3. In case you aren't sure what they're making fun of, here's Bound 2

In case you missed it, and want to hate-watch like the rest of us did, you can see every song performed on The Sound of Music Live right here.

The 2014 Grammy Nominees were announced last night. I can't wait for the show! I'm rooting for Lorde, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Jay Z, and hometown hero, Macklemore.

Let's end with Zac Efron. The details aren't clear and there are reports of a possible drug relapse, but last month he fell in his home, broke his jaw, and had to have it wired shut. He was seen out in public last week and his swollen jaw and scar are noticeable, but he still looks good. Thankfully. I was worried we were going to have another Chase Crawford lip situation on our hands. I can deal with the scar, it makes him look even sexier.

Rita Ora? Really??

I'm just not that interested in this movie. But, I'll probably still see it. Ha!

Good casting re: MGH.

Scars are like tattoos with a better backstory. I have a hard time saying that Zac Efron is attractive... because he looks almost identical to my brother-in-law. Not that my BIL isn't attractive but he's my BIL dude! :)

I hope he's not relapsing but just not good on his feet all the time.

If Miley is the #1 in 100 hot chicks this year I think Maxim needs some new editors and choosers... because ICK. She's so not sexy... or attractive (to me). And she's the worst choice for "women" to aspire to. (JUST my two cents).

I think I'm the only chick in the world that has no desire to get into the 50 shades thing but give me a few years... it took me forever to get on the Hunger Games bandwagon ;) hehe

Funny story on Macklemore. I was looking through instragram at Pearl Jam's photos from VooDoo Fest where they both performed and there were photos of the guys talking, obviously they have ties with Seattle etc and they've probably seen each other out and about on the circuit for YEARS. Young fans, you know how they rant and rave on instagram and every other form of social media were dissing Mack saying he couldn't hold a candle to pearl jam, and they couldn't believe Eddie with bother with him and all I could think was if Eddie read this he'd call you a tasteless rude child for your comments. Eddie seems very accepting and genuinely into all types of music as most of the PJ guys are. I bet they were sharing stories of days in Seattle coming up, etc. I hate social media trolls.

And now that I've written you a book I will say good day :)

PS My hubby calls Bethenny (who I can't stand) Skelator when he sees her face on magazines).
