Spotlight/ Shoutout: Saorise Ronan


Hello Wed.

So as we all know, "New Moon" has been destroying the box office; however, this post has nothing to do with "Twilight Saga." During the previews, the trailer for the "The Lovely Bones" played, and it really caught my eye.

So this week's wonderawesomely awesome s/s goes to Saorise Ronan, the principle star of the flick. I saw the first few moments of the preview, and it looked like "OMG another girly movie about dullness and boredom."

But No, it got way better. Like way way better. I'm now super excited for the movie. It looks suspenseful and serious and extreme and a whole bunch of other things that kick ass. (Truth.) It might be based on a girly looking novel, but there is more to this than meets the eye (or other body parts: hah, bad joke.)

You may remember Saorise from the award winning picture "Atonement," where she played some little girl. No, jk. "Atonement" was actually really good. And I liked the ending. I don't care what anyone says.

QATFYG: Will you go see "The Lovely Bones?" Have you seen "New Moon" yet? (You should see New Moon just to see what the big deal is. It has its ups and downs. Meh, go see it just to be cool.)

  1. Actually, by not going to see New Moon you would still be cool... just to a different group of people.

    A group of discriminating, intelligent, utterly attractive people. (cough) like me (cough)

  2. duuuuude. kemp and I have been freaking out over the lovely bones since we saw the trailer back in september or october. they pushed the release date back to january and I want to personally throttle peter jackson.

    book was so good. dayyum. the end is a total piece de resistance.

    Saorise (I read somewhere it's pronounced "SHUR-sa") is going places. she was pitch-perfect in atonement. DAMMIT, why wasn't atonement nominated for more academy awards? I hope this movie lives up to my wildest fantasies. Because this is one of the few (very, very few) movies I am excited to see.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
