Can you believe Christmas is in 5 days? I sure can’t. I wanted to share with you not one but TWO early Christmas gifts I got and am googly eyed over.
And they’re from a celebrity!
I kid. I kid. They’re the newest Carpool Karaoke segments from one of my many celebrity husbands, James Corden.
Last Tuesday he released the long-awaited (for me, anyway) Bruno Mars collab. It was, as expected, amazing. My favorite part was when James said that his woman wouldn’t be wearing Versace, she’d be wearing Target. ya damn right, boo.
Then, on Thursday, Jimmy dropped the All I Want for Christmas is You mix. As I’ve mentioned before, Lisa and I were big Mariah fans back in the 90’s and we usually incorporated this gem into our act at the various Christmas parties/ Girl Scout meetings we attended. we still do. she’s going to kill me. My point is that our invitation must have gotten lost in the mail but, speaking for both of us I’ll say, we’re being good sports about it and will enjoy from afar. Maybe next year.
Also, Nick Jonas- what the hell, man? EVERYONE knows this song, what’s your issue? Google that shit. Make an effort.
That’s all I got today, kids. I’m off to wrap gifts.
I probably should have saved this post for Friday since it fits the Friday Five description, but I’m a rebel and play by my own rules.
It’s been a pretty busy week so let’s get started, shall we?
MINDY IS BACK: !! Season 4 premiered on Tuesday and all is right in my world. It was an extended episode and, honestly, I savored every extra second. I won’t say too much because 1) we’d be here all day and 2) spoilers. I mean, I assume there are some people who are not like me and happened to be up early enough on Tuesday and were able to watch the episode before work. before you plaster the big L on your forehead, I was up at 8 and had to be at work for 12. there was more than enough time. Anyway, the episode in a nutshell- Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mindy’s parents, Mindy’s wardrobe, Danny being Danny, Morgan being Morgan, kisses in the rain, and the perfection that is Mindanny. And, of course, Mindy speaking my mind.
THE WAITING GAME: No, I’m not talking about my love life or my job hunt. I’m talking about Kate Spade’s video series with Anna Kendrick. They released a new installment this week and, as usual, it is perfection. I’ve said it many times before, just like everything else on here, but I just want to be Anna Kendrick’s best friend. Is that so much to ask? Also, I want NEED a gnome purse. Doesn’t everyone?
BIRFDAYS: Yesterday was Tom Hardy’s birthday and today is Nick Jonas’. Happy birthday, my little stud muffins.
THE SPLAT: It came out this week that Nickelodeon might be making a whole channel dedicated to 90’s Nick. Well, it’s about time. I have a feeling that it will be mostly the cartoons but, small steps. Personally, I hope they also include the game shows and shows like Clarissa Explains it All and Salute Your Shorts. And maybe some old school commercials. The possibilities are endless. Don’t let us down, Nick.
Last, but not least…
THE GOLDEN GIRLS TURN 30: As you may know, I love this show. I can quote it, relate it to everyday life. Lame? Whatever. What’s not to love? It’s older than I am, yet is still relevant today. Which is more than I can say about myself. It tackled taboo issues in a way that, still in today’s world of political correctness, wouldn’t offend anyone (although, you just never know these days.) LOVE.
Oh! a bonus item! because i never have those. Who watches Dancing with the Stars? Nick Carter, hello? I really didn’t have high hopes for this season, with the exception of Nick, but this group is growing on me. I really hope Gary Busey stays on for as long as possible because holy hell that man brings the crazy.
I think that’s about it. This week has been a bit of a fail compared to the non-stop posting last week. Whatever. I’ve come to terms with it.
