it’s the greatest Sunday of the year… for commercials!

This was my favorite ad from the rather disappointing Superbowl yesterday.  I’m not a huge Steelers fan, but I’m from Minnesota.  I’m pretty sure that’s all I have to say to justify why I wanted the Packers to lose.

Dear Void,

Once upon a time when your author blogged regularly, she actually made an effort to publicize her site a little bit.  She got a few comments, it was fun, blah blah blah.  Now I’m just too busy to blog AND promote, so I just blog.  No use promoting without material.  Anyway, each day I glance at my blog stats on my dashboard just to see how I’m doing and lo and behold I’ve been getting more hits by the day.  Today I got to 269. Whhhhatttt?  Maybe it’s just a fluke or spam, but readers.  If you are a real person, leave a little note!  say you stopped by, talk about the movie I loved or hated, give me a virtual pat on the back, or something.  Would ya?  I need to know you’re alive!  Everybody loves mail…. kthanks. peace.

-Lauren

New Years Resolution: Blog.  I just completed my first semester at college.  I’m ready to make this a habit again.  I’ve been needing a creative outlet, and I think this is it. 🙂  My movie-lovin’ hasn’t died down in the slightest – I still take notes and everything.  I just haven’t quite taken the plunge to write organized reviews like I used to.  But watch out folks, it’s a comin’.  Hopefully.  I’ll be trying my best, that’s for sure.  In the meantime, I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and has a Happy New Year!

to go away on a summer’s day never seemed so clear

with 7 comments

Apologies for the petite hiatus.  Unfortunately the rest of the summer will be just as bumpy as I move and start school and whatnot.  But my little vacation time with friends and family was spectacular.  From boogie boarding, swimming, and eating good food, to playing games, watching movies, and shopping it was endless fun.  I even got a hike in with my good buddy.

Also during my absence…. I was featured on The LAMB.  Thanks to all who visited my site during that time, and I hope you haven’t gone too far away!  Tomorrow I am 100% planning on resuming normal movie-reviewing blog posts.

Right now I’m also excited to be watching The West Wing Seasons 3-5 as well as White Collar Season 2 whose Season Premiere aired last week.  I’ve also started my next book in the Newbery Award queue – The Witch of Blackbird Pond.  And finally, the best movie I watched in the past two weeks was probably Shattered Glass (review coming soon!)

Holiday, oh holiday…  I heart summer.

post edit: I’m also avoiding Inception reviews like the plague.  So far I’ve heard nothing but amazing, but when I do see it in a few weeks I don’t want anything ruined for me.

Some People Like Movies will be taking a break for a few weeks.  I may post once or twice, but don’t count on it.  My brother, sister, and friend are visiting us here in Tahiti so we’ll be partying in the sun for two weeks!  I’ll also be having a Star Wars-a-thon with my brother so hopefully I’ll get up reviews for those a few days afterwards.

Don’t go away my few selective readers, I’m comin’ back eventually 😉  Happy movie-watching!

“Lady Gaga falls off her shoes”

That headline just made my day.

3 things

leave a comment »

3 thoughts over the weekend:

1. Mexican food, I miss you. You are delicious.
2. The creation of a chocolate and raspberry combo was a divine inspiration.
3. Nicolas Cage is an over-rated actor, and Knowing was a terrible movie.

That’s all!
