With 2019 being the end of a decade, the "best of" lists cannot be avoided. Best of the year, best of the decade, best of all time! The countdowns and collections are simply everywhere. And to be honest, they're kind of bumming me out! Every time I read another list...
Here a list of every new holiday special airing on television in 2019, at least as far as I know. Holiday specials, not holiday episodes or movies. And I’m not including dog shows or beauty pageants for no other reason than I didn’t want to. Also, I did include a few classics and it’s quite possible I’ve missed some; feel free to tell me if I have. If I run across other specials, I’ll add them. But for now, for today, here are the specials!
Sitting next to me right this very minute is a stack of library books — eight in total, two several weeks overdue. I also have a bunch of books on my bookshelf, in my bedroom, and on my Kindle. All waiting to be read. Prompted by Kaitlyn’s question, though, I’ve decided to just accept defeat and come up with a better plan. I’m returning the overdue books, committing to the others I’ve checked out, and finally getting around to some books I’ve been wanting to read for a while. Here are 14 books I’m excited to read this fall.
The pop culture-related question I am asked (and overhear or read) the most is, “What’s a good show for my tween to watch?” I can’t speak for every tween parent (or, certainly any tween ever). But I can tell you what shows my own daughters have loved. And I can give you the parameters and categories I’m using. Basically, what I’m saying is that this list includes the best TV shows for tweens, according to me.
I’m not going to watch all 19 of these shows. You should not watch all 19 of these shows. But if you are looking for a new show, it’s probably on this list. These are the ones that either I plan to watch myself or that critics are predicting will be popular hits.
From cubicles to corner offices, people at work are just always doing something funny — or at least something laughable. Ridiculous or really annoying, the worst and weirdest parts of work can seem a little bit better when we take a minute to laugh at them. And, we all know that in real life work can be dull and life-sucking — so what better way to deal with the mundane or take a break from boring than to make fun of it? Enter the workplace comedy.
I love reading. It’s my favorite thing to do, more than watching TV or eating chips and queso. Even more than sleeping (evidenced by the many, many nights I’ve stayed up way past my bedtime reading “just one more chapter”). However, I don’t always read well. This summer I’m doing things differently. Here’s how I’ve read 30 (mostly great) books in two months.
Nothing is more heartbreaking to a TV fan than an early cancellation. But this month I’m taking back the short-lived show. Join me?
If your kids (or you) have already read the Harry Potter series, or if your little bookworm isn’t ready for the more intense books of that series, here are some other great books to read!
Now that Avengers: Endgame is out, we can theoretically stop obsessing about it and turn to all the other movies coming out this summer. Mary and her friend, Dawn Camp, watched eleventy billion trailers before sitting down to talk about the best ones. Wondering what...
Sometimes life is dramatic enough, am I right? Here are a few ideas for shows to watch when you just can’t even handle any more drama.
In this week's episode, I get to talk with my friend, Kayse Pratt, about one of our favorite topics: sitcoms! We talk about our favorites from childhood, the sitcoms we watch now, why sitcoms are important, and our top 3(ish) sitcoms of all time. Did we mention your...
