Movie Review – Thor: The Dark World

      4 Comments on Movie Review – Thor: The Dark World

While I enjoy most of the Marvel movies Stan Lee has been putting out for the past decade, this one is no exception.  The only problem is that I kept comparing it to Star Wars. Combining Nordic mythology with space is awesome. I never would have imagined Norse gods and demons as aliens and/or having space ships. Also, I enjoy… Read more »

You’ve wasted…I mean spent…hours on Pinterest. So many shiny objects to distract me, but my usual skeptical instinct is not enforce. That pretty photo of chuck roast, do you know where it came from? That nifty picture of a headboard you’ll never make…where did that originate? None of these questions cross your mind.  You’re pinning!! You’re thinking of all the… Read more »

#LetsTalkBums: Cottonelle Clean Care Routine

Because I love free samples (and blogging) Crowdtap sent me a free sample of Cottonelle Fresh Care.  I know.  Who really wants to discuss what goes on in the bathroom? Well, there might be someone out there looking for a way to feel cleaner.  Stranger things have happened…like me moving to Minnesota. OK, that’s not strange, that was true love,… Read more »
