Happy Friday, Friends! So sorry to have missed the blog last week, but I was super busy & sick. Today, I'm just sick... but whatever. But here's what's been on my mind this week!
Favorite Epidemic: Vocal Fry Patterns
This is hilarious to me. My sisters & I tried this last week, and were cracking up. I only really know one person, personally, who is TERRIBLE with Vocal Fry, but never did I realize that it's become an actual epidemic. Even though this lady mentions the Kardashian Fryers (Who I would say, have more of a vocal intonation problem [you know, where everything sounds like a question...] than actual Vocal Fry) I would say Rachel Zoe & her cast are probably the WORST Vocal Fryers in history. Here's Amy Phillips doing an impersonation of Rachel Zoe... She's almost dead on!
Personally, I think the whole thing is annoying. And it's even more annoying that people do this, because it makes them feel important or "worthy". People need to really find out what matters in life.
So, I'm totally excited about seeing this movie!! It just came out last week, but I never like to see things on Opening Night. For one, seeing so soon means I'm bound to have to sit next to someone I don't know, fighting over the armrest or worried about our thigh-meat touch, because the theatres are always packed. Also, if I end up going with a group of friends, I end up seeing the same move several times, because no one else has seen it, yet! (I saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn II 3 times in the theatres! Now, I just own it lol.) Or if it's really good, I always want to talk about it, but then I'm stifled, because no one else has seen it! So, I usually like to wait... However, both my sisters & a few friends have seen it already and love it! They say that it's not what they expected & that it's more emotional (so I'm bringing tissues)... Another reason not to be stuck next to someone you don't know. So, I'm seeing it tonight! I'm so excited!!
What usually helps me, is trying to remember that these people who act like that, at times, are just trying to be helpful. There's a difference between a person who has a huge problem with it, yet has other redeeming qualities, and one who is just a complete a**hole, most of the time. Their need to be "right" or know everyone's business goes beyond wanting to know them very well. I've been getting better at recognizing which is which... But I'm definitely going to study this when I get home. Sometimes we need tools to help us deal with others who don't behave as we behave.

Favorite Pin Up Pic of the week: Girl Fight!
I just adore this pic! It's what I imagine a girl-gang looks like in Westside Story... You know, like the the female version of "The Jets & The Sharks"--- They don't fight with knives, they fight with mean looks & dancing! ha ha. Anyway. I love this look! And I think I'm going to add the Pin-up Pics of the week, because there is so many that I love!
Anyway- Off to the movies & To begin my weekend!!
