Fun Friday Song

It's Felicia Day, what can I say. Awesome!


Nothing like a little fun geeky music to bring in the weekend. :) I do love adore Felicia Day. Hmmm, I guess I can do mini reviews of her Guild series. It's such fun to watch even though I don't game as much. :)

Happy Friday!

Tiny Times/Tiny times 2.0

I really don't know how to write this post.  I watched both movies quite some time ago and the words just are not coming out... so it will be super short, with no pictures.

As much as I endured liked parts these two movies, I felt there were too many cliches and plot holes. I also couldn't stop comparing it to another movie about the strength of friendships and life.  Whereas the friendships of this one felt much weaker, they ended up focusing on romantic love - worse yet, all the drama was done in such cliche ways, the movies just turned out weaker in every single way possible.

I know the third movie will be coming out this year and I doubt I will watch it. Not interested at all.

Tiny Times

The first movie was more enjoyable between the two. It was nice to see a story about these four young women, going through the good and bad. At the same time, everything was rather cliché-y in every sense of the word. The sporty one, the graceful, the artsy and the protagonist - the sort of underdog. In the end, it was just a simple movie about friends.

Tiny Times 2.0

Ok, this was where I encountered some problems. I doubt I can review objectively since there was not much about this movie that I enjoyed. Our four friends were pretty narrowed down to three, while the problems thrown in their paths (as well as resolutions) felt absurd. It was as if they were trying to make the movie was dark and dramatic...and it failed. I was bored and felt like fast-forwarding the whole time. There was almost no real theme. That's not true. They tried to inject themes and everything was just weak.

Overall, this was just an overly simplified and glamorized stories using these friends to channel out to the audience.  I was bored at certain times, and other times, I simply got too distracted by the plot holes and story errors to pay attention.  The actresses are wonderful though, so they are definitely worth watching.  It's still not enough to cover the consistently weak storylines.  A very big pity since they did have an amazing cast and there were some good potential for a solid story speckled throughout the movies like flaked off skin cells in the vast openness of nine-feet pool.

TBR pile exists!



Lookie! I have a TBR pile. I really do have books waiting for me, I've just been a little busy.

Doesn't it look small? Have no fear, it is actually only one of my many piles. Hahaha. I have quite a few.

I actually have been able to finish a few books, but I just haven't had the time to write out the reviews.  Been doing to self-re

There were a few really awesome books. :D A few meh, but either way, I want to get some reviews out. Hopefully soon. :)

Spring!

Happy spring my friends!

My apologies for the recent lack of reviews. That may continue for some time, so please hang in there with me while I sort some things out. Mostly my mind. Lol. The quantity of my intake for books, movies, and tv series has gone down dramatically lately. Instead, I have focused my few minutes of spare time between collapse and exhaustion doing some random activities.

If you follow me on either Twitter or Facebook you would have seen the photos already: food! It's all about food these days. Lol. With a dab of gardening. It is spring and it only felt right that I prepared for the horrific torture of allergies fun spring events.

Recently, I finally started canning even while still fearful of poisoning myself, however accidentally, from not fully sanitizing or cooking the food and glass. As such, I was able to make quite a few things.

I had a can or two of pumpkin puree left from end of winter so I made some pumpkin spice butter and paste. Hehehe. The difference between the two is that pumpkin butter has the heart attack inducing delicious butter.

With the strawberry jam and pumpkin butter, I tried my hand at mini pies. They turned out ok if I do say so myself.

I hope everyone has been having a fun spring - even with the changing weathers.

Currently

So I admit to being a lazy dog these days. I have been reading this same book for a few months now. It's an awesome called...




I love this collection of short stories. I hope to be able to review this soon. :)

In other news, the drama and wuxia shows has been a bit slow. There's supposed to be an explosion of internet-novels adaptions coming up soon, so I have some hope for upcoming reviews. :)

A few books waiting in cue, but that'll come later when time opens up.

How are you doing these days? Anything fun?

A fun little visit :)

Look who came to visit!

It's Rustybaby!


He is so adorable as always.


He swaggered around the neighborhood.


Cruised around the cities.


And more than anything, looked so sweet while waiting for treats.
Bringing joy and fun to everyone around.

Rustybaby hopes you had a wonderful weekend much like he did (since everyone kept sneaking him chicken cooked specially for him while his parents weren't lookimg). And if your weekend was not as relaxing, He doesn't want you to worry.  Next weekend is just around the corner. ;)
