Suggested events

Consider this post a severe warning. Has anyone been on Facebook lately to where it lists your events? They've made a few changes I like, such as including birthdays. But they've also made a change which is utterly ludicrous. Suggested Events pop up with all the events you've actually been invited to. These are events that are public, whom someone on your Facebook has been invited to, and is attending. Lets be clear people, that person could be an ex-boyfriend, ex-friend, someone you only keep on your Facebook to make fun of and don't even like, anyone. No one has make a conscious effort to invite you, they might not even want you there. Sometimes these events are from companies which makes sense, but other times birthdays and house parties pop up. I have nightmares imagining myself showing up to a "suggested event" where everyone looks at me, and in horror I realize who there I actually know, only gets worse from there.

 Beware, suggested events exist, and sometimes it's not pretty.

It might be time to admit that I'm slightly obsessed with the game Words with Friends. I ran into a word like "quiz" in my daily life, and actually took the time to stop and think, "That's a good word...that would be almost 70 points with a triple word score!" You might be laughing now, but next time you get those four letters, you'll use it, and it will blow your opponents mind.

Ew Beibs

Have you heard Justin Beibers new song, "Boyfriend" on the radio yet? Does anyone else feel like he's seductively whispering the lyrics to you, through your car speakers? He's saying, "I can take you places you ain’t never been before..." and I'm thinking where Beiber? The ball pit? He just turned 19 this year, on March 1st. Ew. But then this lyric makes me laugh, "I could be your Buzz Lightyear fly across the globe" Yes, children's toys, that's something he's got a good frame of reference for. Don't get me wrong, love that he's Canadian, and all the power to him for trying to change his image, I just wasn't ready for it. Seductive promises aren't your style just yet young grasshopper, it's jarring.

All Dogs Go to Heaven = Not a kids movie

My sister came over the other night, and with a feeling of nostalgia, suggested we watch one of her favourite childhood movies, All Dogs Go to Heaven. If you haven't seen this movie, let me recap for you, keeping in mind it's rated G. When the dogs aren't smoking, drinking and gambling, they're trying to kill each other. At one point on of the dogs goes to hell, where there's a lava pit and skeletons. Also, a family of rebel mice abduct them and sacrifice them to an alligator, who falls in love with the main dog Charlie and ends up saving them later in the film.

I spent most of the first half of the movie with my mouth hanging open, wondering how it could ever be considered a kids movie. Then I called my dad and asked him how he would ever let us watch it, nonetheless over and over again. In researching that the movie came out in 1989, which doesn't account for how inappropriate it is, I just found out they did a sequel in 1996. Wonderful.
