A wedgie wedding

Posted by AllieB on August 11, 2011

TGIT.

WATCH: Despicable Me. This is a deLIGHTful film featuring the voices of Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, Russell Brand, Jason Segel, some other people, and….Steve Carrell. Before you’re like, NO I’m over Steve Carrell and his voice, know this: he speaks in an Eastern European accent. I LOVE Eastern European accents and Steve’s is hilarious! I rented DM at the beach with the fam and we watched it 4 times in 24 hours. Granted, it was raining and it was the only movie we had, but still….it’s that good. Here is a clip featuring Agnes. IT’S SO FLUFFY I’M GONNA DIE!!!

It’s a great movie for boys and girls, men and women, etc etc. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up.

FEMALES: it’s not brand new information, but gel manicures are the bomb. I got “Bubblegum” which is a lovely pale pink and it’s like I got a phalange makeover – my hands look so sophisticated and elegant…two words not so frequently used w/r/t BBT…and I’m partial to Glamour Nails in The Peach, although if you’re further north Hammond Nails in the Chastain shopping center is really good, too…

GET IN MY BELLY: Hip Pops! Based in Athens, Melissa Fontaine has recently launched this popsicle truck which will be debuting at the UGA v Boise State tailgate. These flava-flavs look awesome…I can’t wait to try! Play your part: go like them on Facebook.

HOW TO: Drink in Public. Shout-out to Savannah for having no open container laws…you know what place does? Athens.

Freaky deaky:

A wedgie wedding: this week’s featured phrase on Things People Goog That Lead Them to BBT.

Grossest Phrase: “why do my feet swell with cheese.” SICK.

Proof Positive That People Are Retarded Phrase: where cann I butt Winn Dixie piminto chees. This is a shot in the dark, but I bet you can find it at Winn Dixie…

Maybe I need to talk less about cheese…

I need a talented graphic designer –¬†seriously¬†– if you know someone or are someone who might want to help me create a BBT persona, please email me: baxterbarktwiceblog@gmail.com.

I’m so happy

J Simps has come out with a new fragrance. It’s called: I Fancy You.

I am not kidding, that’s what it is called. I imagine hundreds of conversations, worldwide, following a similar script:

That’s an interesting perfume…. What’s the name of it? (So I know what NOT to buy)

“I Fancy You.”

Er, well, that’s nice – but I really just wanted to know what the name is of the perfume you’re wearing.

“I Fancy You.”

FINE nevermind.

It’s just awkward.

Here a few distractions to mediate the agony of a Friday afternoon in the workplace:

I’ll be back on Monday, so you can kiss the half-ass posts siyonara…

BBT goes to the movies

Posted by AllieB on December 15, 2010

‘Tis the season for movies. The big blockbusters come out during the summer, and then the Oscar-striving ones come out around now – Black Swan, for instance. Black Swan is a really f’ed up and horrifying psychological thriller about a ballerina, played by Natalie Portman, and her inner demons. Mila Kunis plays her rival. Both are amazing and both were recently nominated for Golden Globe Awards.

I left the theater in a cold sweat. I took myself home, poured myself a glass o wine, sat down on my couch, and reminded myself that I am not insane nor am I losing my mind. It was incredibly intense. That said – I highly recommend going to see it.

The next movie I see, I think, will be a light and breezy rom-com. How Do You Know fits this bill perfectly. There’s a love triangle betwixt Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, and Paul Rudd, and then Jack Nicholson is in it, too. I don’t so much care about the plot in rom-coms, mostly I find that it is important that I do not hate the female lead; I happen to love Reese, so we’re all set. HOWEVER, there is one detail that I’m already having enormous difficulty getting my head around, and that is that Reese’s character is an aging…wait for it…PROFESSIONAL SOFTBALL PLAYER.

No, she’s not. It’s utterly¬†unbelievable. Refer to the photos below:

Yeah, I don’t see it either. I should mention that when I goog’ed “professional softball player female” I got a lot of returns on this Jennie Finch person, who is apparently “the most famous female softball player” ever. This is probably because she is blonde and poses in her bikini a lot. I’m not going to include a photo of her because it kind of refutes the point I’m trying to make, but here’s a link. Although, I can think of one person who once played softball – she had her own bat, even – who isn’t terribly beastly…Pallison, does this sound familiar??

Anyway, I think I will accept this egregious error in plot and see the movie anyway. Like I said, I’m kinda in the Dark Side right now after the traumatizing experience of Black Swan (again, I really think it’s a film worth watching), but nothing that a good dose of boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl-back can’t fix.

Annie: Pepper lies a lot. She probably hasn’t been to a movie, either. Actually, I think it’s better when you don’t know what you’re missing.
Daddy Warbucks: Punjab, buy out the 8:00 show. Let’s all go to the movies.
