Here's a first: I'm writing a review on a book I didn't finish because I couldn't. Not because it's terrible - it's far from it. I couldn't finish it because it was way too sophisticated for me. Jenny Slate is a magnificent writer. She can take an every day situation like eating breakfast and turn … Continue reading Review: Little Weirds | Jenny Slate
I can't think of a better way to kick off the first Watch This, Not That of the year than with a comedy edition. We need a laugh now more than ever so I took the liberty of watching a couple of Netflix specials to give you something to brighten your weekend at and something … Continue reading Watch This, Not That | Comedy, Volume: 1
I was a nightmare of a 14-year-old, or as I like to think of it, coming into my own. I'd had it with being a cheerleader so during a meeting I made a few of them cry then quit (my parents STILL remind me about that). I'd discovered D.L. Hughley and thanks to his comedy … Continue reading Their names are Snoopy and Prickly Pete
Here's a piece of trivia about me that might come in handy one day. My first adult crush was Keanu Reeves. I was 11 and because it was a simpler time, I was introduced to him via his movie Speed. I so badly wanted to be trapped on a bus that was about to explode … Continue reading Review: What Would Keanu Do? | Chris Barsanti
There's never been a better year for books. Books were the escape we needed from this prank of a year and luckily, there were a few good ones to keep us occupied. Now, I don't always read what's new but I do try my best to keep up with what comes out and in 2020, … Continue reading My favorite book of the year and some other ones I liked: 2020 Edition.
I'm not good at very many things, but gifts is not one of those things. I know what gifts I want. I make a list of the gifts that I want. Nobody has to wonder what to get me because I am very vocal about the gifts that I want. Don't bother trying to surprise … Continue reading You want to know how I got these scars?
You're not a Carrie. Let's go ahead and get that out of the way right now. You. Are not. A Carrie. It's OK, I'm not a Carrie either, and it's not just because I don't get paid for these posts (although that's reason enough). I, as well as you, do not fit the Carrie profile … Continue reading Review: We Should All Be Mirandas | Chelsea Fairless & Lauren Garroni
"To my mom and dad, and my brother, Casey. You're like family to me." It's Colin Jost's dedication and the very first joke of his book. Simple, absolutely hilarious, and sets the tone for the entire book. In reading his memoir, A Very Punchable Face, it's easy to see why Colin Jost is the head … Continue reading Review: A Very Punchable Face|Colin Jost
In the winter of 2011, my husband and I moved into our very first grown-up house: a duplex. It doesn't sound grown-up but our rent payment nearly doubled so that was pretty mature for us. The duplex was fairly new so the thought of it being haunted never crossed my mind. Also, I don't believe … Continue reading Ghost Stories: Part 3
Hello, and welcome to another edition of Watch This, Not That: Halloween Edition. I'm your host, Typical Jenn, and I believe my taste to be better than the know-nothing movie critics that panned the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose, one of the best possession movies of all time - FACT. Anyway, I spent my … Continue reading Watch This, Not That: Halloween Edition (2)
