That’s that

Suffice it to say, it was an emotional Sunday. I subjected myself to unnecessary grief by watching the series finale of Friday Night Lights and then sitting through the last installment of the Harry Potter films. I am reminded of Sping 2k4 – cut to: the night before my last exam when I was studying at a friend’s apartment, enduring the series finale of Friends, my favorite television program, alone. He walked in midway through to find me on the couch, my books spread around me, bawling freely….he quietly excused himself and retreated quickly back across the courtyard.

Look, sorry I’m not sorry I allow myself to be engaged by quality tv and cinema presentations.

Friday Night Lights has been sensational this entire last season. It’s already out on DVD, so I highly recommend queuing up your Netflix. AND both Coach Taylor and Tami Taylor were nominated for Emmy’s again, as was the program on a whole. Talk about deserving winners…Coach Taylor could tell me throw myself in front of a bus and I’d say, “can I throw myself in front of two?” I love that guy.

Harry Potter was a-MAH-zing. They jump right in where they left off with the first installment, and it’s a non-stop thrill ride til the very end. Actually, no, the very end is a little awkward, but up until there are 5 minutes left – heart-pounding thrill ride. Why do movie critics always say “thrill ride?” I have never used that phrase before, ever, and how strange that it’s used re: a decidedly stationary activity. Just saying. Also – I thoroughly enjoyed this “Best of” retrospective covering all of the Harry Potter movies on NYMag.

BBT HIGHLY recommends both. Doooo it.

Meet and greet: BP’s new PUPPY PIPPA!!!! Can you tell which one is Pippa the Pup, and which one is Pippa Middleton made entirely out of crumpets? (I know, so weird.)

I LOVE PIPPA THE PUP!!! (She’s on the left)

Too soon?

I have a very exciting proposition for you….like, it’s huge. I realize the timing of this request is not ideal, what with that whole pesky virus issue (again – CURED)….but hey, stuff happens. Anyway, every year Creative Loafing does a very thorough, very in-depth Best of Atlanta list. They cover basically everything there is in ATL, from dive bars to best high school to BEST BLOG. I think you can see where I’m going with this…VOTE FOR BBT!!! How cool would that be to win…or even make the top 5. BBT’s not even a year old, so my aspirations are lofty, but I figure I’ve got nothing to lose – plus, BBT is the best blog in Atlanta, IMO, so it really just makes sense. It’s very easy, here’s what you do:

  1. Go to the survey page
  2. Register (unfortunately you have to sign up – it takes all of three seconds and all it asks is for your email and you can opt out of any newsletter stuff…so don’t let that hold you back)
  3. To have your answers count, you must fill in at least five categories. This, also, will take you no time at all.
  4. The “best blogger” and “best blog” categories are at the very bottom of the first page
  5. Write in “Allie Baxter” and then “Baxter Bark Twice” or, respectively

All done! You can also vote for Tex’s Tacos as the best food truck while you’re at it – that’s on page 4 – and Scout for the Home as best boutique (page 5)

Thanks in advance. BBT 4 eva!!!

It was Missy’s first beach vacation, and I’ve never seen such pure, unmitigated bliss…
