This week, Amanda White and I combine two of our favorite things into one fun conversation. We’re talking about children’s books (yay!) adapted into children’s movies (double yay!). And while we recorded this well before we had even heard of the coronavirus, we’re hopeful this episode will be helpful as you’re looking for ways to keep your kids entertained while you’re staying home.
Perhaps part of me wishes I could, in fact, turn back time. Who knows? Regardless, the truth is that I LOVE TIME TRAVEL STORIES. And so does my friend (and friend of the show), Amanda White. So today, the time has come (see what I did there?) for us to talk about ALL our favorite time travel stories in books, TV shows, and movies.
ay my friend Dawn and I are talking about upcoming we’re excited about. Prepare yourself to roll your eyes as we swear up and down that we’re underwhelmed by this season’s movies and then proceed to tell you about almost 20 movies that we just HAVE to see.
Every few months I sit down with my friend Dawn to talk about what upcoming movies we want to see. Of course, it's not quite as simple as that sounds. We're big ol' nerds, and also big movie fans, so I have taken to creating an entire spreadsheet for us. Release date,...
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?
