MARCEL THE SHELL WITH SHOES ON IS BACK!

This is a big day for Marcel the Shell fans!

 

We’ve seen the first video of the tiny, matter of fact shell and he stole our hearts. Then came the second video, equally heart warming. Now there is a third installment of Marcel The Shell With Shoes On! Enjoy!

 

If you haven’t seen the first two videos, Google them. Also, keep in mind the tiny little guy is voiced by this talented lady. You’ll also get some background info if you have absolutely no idea what all of this crazy shell stuff is…

 

I’m so happy!!

Top 3 Things: Halloween Spirit Edition

Alright, you. Halloween is NEXT Friday. And I think that Halloween should be like Christmas. By that, I mean we should be in the Halloween spirit weeks before it actually gets here. So if you’re not in the creepy mood yet, it’s okay. That’s what I’m here for!

 

Here are the Top 3 VERY SHORT scary stories to give you goose bumps and will for sure put you in that crEeEeEEeepy Halloween spirit:

 

#3  “I always thought my cat had a staring problem – she always seemed fixated on my face. Until one day, when I realized that she was always looking just behind me.”

 

 

 

#2 I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy, check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy, there’s somebody on my bed.”

 

 

 

#1 The last thing I saw was my alarm clock flashing 12:07 before she pushed her long rotting nails through my chest, her other hand muffling my screams. I sat bolt upright, relieved it was only a dream, but as I saw my alarm clock read 12:06, I heard my closet door creak open.”

 

Top 3 Things: Game of Thrones Prep Edition

 

Well hello there! I don’t know about you, but I am super glad fall is here and most of my favorite TV shows are back on the air.

Only thing that would make all this better would be if Game of Thrones was back too. But alas, we must wait until Spring. Womp womp. If you’re also going through Game of Thrones withdrawal like I am, I have a few ideas for how you can pass the time and prep for the upcoming 5th season!

 

Here are the Top 3 Things you can do to get ready for the return of Game of Thrones:

 

#3 Host a Game of Thrones party! Be sure to include themed food, viewing of some of your favorite episodes and/or scenes, games and a costume contest. This will surely get you through a few hours of withdrawal.

You can send my invitation to the QMIX studios…

 

#2 Read the books. Duhdoy. Or watch something else with dragons in it. Because dragons. My recommendations? How to Train Your Dragon, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and Sleeping Beauty.

 

 

#1 Download the SWEET new app that helps you learn Dothraki! This is real life! And there was much nerd-rejoicing!

Now go download it and get to work!

 

Oh My Pratt!

I always thoroughly enjoy the little extra promo videos that SNL posts for their upcoming shows. This one is my favorites to date. Kate McKinnon is one of my favorite cast members and Chris Pratt is one of my favorite people soooo….check it out.

Top 3 Things: Ice Cream Edition

Tonight’s ‘Top 3 Things’ was inspired by a post I saw from Mr. Tim Green last night. Apparently this is a thing?!

 

I don’t know how I feel about it. BUT! I DO know that I love ice cream!

 

 

Here are the Top 3 other fun ice cream things that I’ve found:

 

#3 You can make perfect homemade ice cream sandwiches with this contraption! Look how pretty! And yummy…

 

#2 This would be about the only thing to keep me from a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream.

 

 

#1 Did you know….that there is a service that will send you gourmet ice cream sandwiches every month?! Now you do! LOOK!

Top 3 Things: Silver Lining Edition

This past weekend, some lovely person (or people) decided to break into my car and steal my purse and my sense of security. Hooray!

 

BUT here are the Top 3 positive things to come out of this horrific experience:

 

# I had a handful of my business cards that are now in said thief’s possession. Hopefully they decided to drop them into random free food raffles at my favorite restaurants. That would be the kind thing to do, I think.

 

#2 In my last blog, I talked about a Toothless stuffed animal gift that I had just gotten from a co-worker. Toothless is gone now. Hopefully he will find some new adventures!

 

 

#1 All my family and friends are being really awesome to me during this time of extreme frustration. So that’s nice.
