Top 5 Things: Famous Proms Edition

Yes. You read that right. Top 5 Things. I’ve been getting mentally prepared for CAP Adult Prom and that made me think about the greatest TV and movie proms. Once I started to remember my faves, I couldn’t possibly narrow my list down to just 3.

But Joanna! This is madness! You can’t just throw rules out the window like that! 

Maybe not. But it’s happening!

 

Here are the Top 5 most memorable TV/Movie Proms:

 

With Honorable Mention going to She’s All That. Thank you, Usher. 

 

#5 Friends. The Ross look. Nailed it. 

 

#4 10 Things I Hate About You. Check out little JGL. Ha. 

 

#3 Mean Girls. ::Breaks Crown:: GASP!

 

#2 Never Been Kissed. The theme, the romance, the dog food.

 

#1 BUFFY! Prom werewolves and Buffy gets the “Thanks” she deserves. And then some Angel. Feelings.
 

 

What are some of your favorite Prom moments in TV or movies?

 

Top 3 Things: Life Hacks For Adults Edition

Being an adult can be rough. I’ve found some useful tips for making it just a little easier. 

 

Here are the Top 3 Things you wish you had been doing already:

 

#3 You’ve just ordered a scolding hot cup of beverage goodness and can’t possibly wait any amount of minutes to enjoy it. Result: your tongue hates you for the rest of the day. Tip: Tell the lovely coffee shop person that you want it “kids temperature”. Apparently that’s a thing! Then you can consume your beverage right away!

 

#2 You’re having a get together and have a bottled beverage that needs chilled now or the world will end. Tip: Wrap the bottle in a wet paper towel, put it in the freezer and it should be nice and cold in about 15 minutes.

#1 You have a sore throat that feels a little swollen and eating things makes it hurt worse, but you really want to eat something sweet. Tip: Eat marshmallows! There’s a little bit of scientific reasoning behind it, but psh, who cares! Marshmallows!

  

The Affable Bubba Watson

unnamedBubba Watson made it rain at Waffle House. It’s his thing, when he wins a tournament, he goes to Waffle House. After he had the green jacket slipped on him Sunday, he hit the one in Augusta , where he had a double grilled cheese with a side of hash browns, and whatever else for his wife and four or five friends…so the bill was what, $18-$20? He left a $148 tip on the bill.  Wonder what he’ll leave the dry cleaner for getting the grease stain out of the jacket?

James & Peta “Let It Go” on #DWTS

 

 

It was Disney Week this time on Dancing with the Stars. James Maslow [of Big Time Rush] and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd, stole the show with their contemporary dance to “Let it Go” from Frozen. 

 

 

 

A perfect score! Of course! You attach that song to anything and it’s perfect! 

 

 

And anytime you have an excuse to do this move, I applaud you!

 

 

Top 3 Things: Productivity Edition

Tax day is today! Give yourself a high five! You deserve it!

With that in mind, I thought I’d throw some productivity tips out there. I can’t be the ONLY person in the world who waited until the last minute to submit my taxes. Right…..?

 

Here are the Top 3 ways you can increase your productivity and say “Bye bye!” to procrastinating:

 

#3 Create a routine for yourself and set up habits that will signal the start and end to your work day. For example, after you finish your morning cup of coffee, you also force yourself to finish checking up on all your favorite websites. And make plans at the end of the day. That gives you more accountability to leave work at a specific time. 

#2 Track your time wasting habits. Write down everything you do for a day and then see on paper just how much time you spend doing pointless stuff. 

#1 Revamp your work playlist to include motivating tunes. Or just listen to QMIX all day ;)

Sharknado’s BACK

SharknadoPoster_2616393bYou can be in the sequel to the SYFY movie, “Sharknado”. Producers say they’re trying to raise $50-thousand dollars for a bonus scene that would include “chainsaws being used in the vicinity of sharks.” So they’ve decided to finance that scene through the website, IndieGoGo, and among the things your money can buy are:

–For $45, they’ll name a shark that appears in the movie after you.

–If you fork over $120 bucks, they’ll record your scream and use it in a scene

–$5,000 bucks gets you a walk-on with either a death scene or a heroic scene

“Sharknado 2,” will be out July 31. Just when you thought it was safe to turn SyFy back on.

(Actually, it’s never been safe.)

Top 3 Things: Will You Go to Prom With Me? Edition

CAP Adult Prom is going to be here soon! Time to think of some creative ways to get yourself a date! Even if you have your date situation locked down, you may still be able to use these sweet ideas in the future. (Thank you, Internet.)

 

Here are the Top 3 ways to guarantee a “YES!” to that infamous question, “Will you go to Prom with me?”: 

 

#3 Utilize that free social media stuff. I’m not talking about just posting on someone’s wall or Tweeting them. Look how these guys got sneaky…

 

Nailed it.

 

#2 Anything involving food and word play. Better yet, both. 

 

 

#1 Puppies.

Google Glass

glassIf you want to get on the upside of the curve, tomorrow is the day you can buy Google Glass glasses. It’s the first time you, me and every average person can buy a pair. Up until now they were only sold to Google “Explorers”. Feelings are mixed on them. Some call it the future of computing, others call it the downfall of personal computing and it takes even less effort to be connected and zone out. People wearing them have been banned from bars and restaurants, given tickets for distracted driving…and since you won’t have your phone in your hand when you run into something, people will just think you’re an idiot.
