It's Oscar Season, Or My 6 Favorite Best Picture Winners



On February 26, 2017, a bunch of celebrities will gather together to pontificate on current events and pat themselves gratuitously on the back for making millions of dollars providing us all entertainment.

That can only mean one thing. 

It is time for the 89th Academy Awards!

Now, I must admit I skipped many of the 2017 nominated films. I know, I KNOW. I tried, friends. But, BUT, five minutes into La La Land and I wanted to find Ralphie and borrow his Red Rider BB Gun. If I want to watch ridiculously silly singing and dancing, well, you know the drill.

When in doubt, Whedon it out.

But truly, I digress.

This year, there are so many deserving performances and a diverse list of nominees, it will be interesting to see who picks up the most coveted award in Hollywood. Do you have any Oscar predictions of your own?

The REAL Arkham Asylum, Or An Afternoon At The Danvers State Hospital For The Criminally Insane



Editor's Note: You probably expected a recap of Lifetime's remake of the classic movie "Beaches." Unfortunately, that will not be featured on my blog. I know, I KNOW. But, BUT, I could not stomach a remake of this film and, furthermore, it is my mom and my absolute favorite movie of all time to watch together. Since I am far away from mom, seeing our movie turned into a pile of absolute donkey dingleberries would make me incredibly sad. And who wants a sad Mili Wifey? Right. Let's press on.

On Sunday, I decided to find something for Military Husband and I to do around Boston that would be fun. You know, to really celebrate Sunday Funday. There are SO many options to choose from, but I decided to find something that would be totally free and completely scary as hell spooky. 

Friends, terrifying is to Mili Wifey like ratchetosity is to Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.

Grab a sippy cup of your favorite booze.

But truly, I digress.

Helena (No, Not The My Chemical Romance Song), Or My First Winter Storm Experience



I survived my first Winter Storm! What is up, Helena?


Being a Southerner, I really did not know what to expect. Saturday morning, I went to the gym, which was packed, early. On my way home, I stopped by Dunkin Donuts, which was also packed and this conversation occurred:

Man In A Patriots Hoodie: Oh. So I was talking to my friend in New Bedford. They are in a full out blizzard! Can you believe it? It's heading this way in one hour.

Me:


Look friends, I have heard about the Northeast Snowpocalypse. And I know the snow here is no joke.

Lifetime Movie Network Recap: Mommy I Didn't Do It



Christmas trees litter the streets, the remnants of New Year's Eve reeks in the gutters of New York City and Lifetime charges ahead through the green light to begin the 2017 Shitstorm Movie Parade.

And my friends, it did not disappoint.

Sunday night's movie titled "Mommy, I Didn't Do It" is a sequel to the 2013 Lifetime movie "The Wrong Woman" starring Danica McKellar. You know Danica, as in Winnie Cooper, as in:


Trudy, the mystery woman in Ted Mosby's bed.

I should make a Christmas theme movie snack, for real. #becauseIamTedMosby
