Bad Girl’s Movie Night

I’ve seen a photo on Pinterest with some movie ideas for a girl’s night in. You may have seen it.  It looks something like this:

There are a couple of movies on there we might tolerate (like The Hangover), but none of my girlfriends would stand for that sappy shit on the list. Gag!

My girlfriends like sexy!

So I made my own girl’s night movie list. It’s more of a Bad Girl’s Movie Night List. Here it goes:

Never Back Down – Parts One, Two, and Three! Plot? Who gives a fuck when there are tons of young, topless men fighting each other.

Magic Mike – Plot? IDGAF!

Warrior – A little dramatic, but this movie will get your love/hate emotions going while you bite your knuckle every time someones shirt is off.

Crazy Stupid Love – “It’s like you’re photoshopped!” I could totally wash my panties on Ryan Gosling’s abs.

Fast and the Furious – They steal stuff, they race bad guys, they win, the end. Gives you time to get the deets on who’s sleeping with who in Teeny, TX and you still get to watch Paul Walker’s fine ass shift gears.

Lawless – Rough, rowdy, and against the law. Just the way I like it.

The Proposal – A little romantic comedy never hurt when Ryan Reynolds goes buck naked in it.

Limitless – Very sexy movie if you like Bradley Cooper, and I know you do.

Surfer, Dude – It’s a stupid movie and I hate to hear Matthew McConaughey’s voice, but his hot bod is in nothing but swim trunks throughout the entire movie. Mute it like I do if you must.

Boogie Nights – You know when you see your high school crush again and all the feelings rush back? That’s Marky Mark to every girl that remembers the glorious Calvin Klein ads.

Friends with Benefits – It was a toss up between this and the very similar No Strings Attached, but Mila Kunis wins and Justin Timberlake went from sexy to irresistable since Suit and Tie hit the airwaves.

So, until the Shades of Grey movies come out, this is what we’ve got to work with.

Well, what do you think? Are there any you could add that have the right amount of sexy, rough, and silly?

!Arriba! Casserole

Sometimes, I like to cook complicated shit just to prove that I’m not afraid of twenty ingredient recipes.  Other times, I keep it simple because I’m a busy girl here.  This is one of the simplest recipes I know.  So simple, I should call it “Fuck It Casserole”.  Sometimes, I’ll whip up this sauce in a styrofoam bowl, bake it in a foil pan, and eat it on a paper plate with a plastic fork.  Then I just throw everything away when I’m done and the only dish to be washed is my wine glass.

¡Arríba! Casserole

1 box frozen chicken taquitos

1 can Rotel

1 can red enchilada sauce

8 oz. sour cream

2 c. Mexican cheese blend, shredded

4 green onions, chopped (optional)

Mix Rotel, enchilada sauce, and sour cream together.  In a greased casserole dish, layer the taquitos and top with the sauce.  Bake 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.  Top with cheese and bake until cheese melts.  Sprinkle with green onions.

TXTual Healing

I think media artist Paul Notzold is awesome and very creative.  He has amazing ideas, which you can browse on his site, but I like his project, TXTual Healing, the best.  It involves audience participation.  He projects an image on a wall, roof, whatever, and passers-by can send texts to a certain phone number and each text is displayed in the image for the public to see.  Here are a few pics out of hundreds that are on the project site.

Sometimes, he adds a prompt, like in the image above, which says, “Who are you afraid of?”.  I would like to see a prompt that says, “I have a confession…”. 

Pretty cool, huh?  To see more, go the the TXTual Healing website.  To see some other projects by Paul, go to his website.

I’m Beau.

Here’s a pointer for you music fans: When you meet the lead singer to a band named after the lead singer, don’t ask him what his fucking name is.

ME with Beau Hinze and the Backporch Shufflers at Belle’s Landing on Saturday, June 16th, 2012.

“…and what’s your name?” I asked Beau of the band, Beau Hinze and the Backporch Shufflers, as if I was a total genius to come up with such a question.

His eyebrows knit together and he hesitates as if to make sure I just asked that question before he realizes I’m not joking and kindly, but questioningly, tells me, “I’m Beau,” with a little emphasis on the “Beau” part just to let me know that I’m an idiot.

Dead pan.

I could try to blame my blunder on alcohol, but I was the DD, so I was perfectly sober. And perfectly capable of knowing his name. And perfectly horrified that I asked a perfectly stupid question.

Anyway, we laughed it off and the band graciously thanked my best friend, Angie, and I for coming out to see them play and then we got all fuzzy so Angie could snap a picture of us.  Thanks, Angie!!

Crawfish Etouffee

Crawfish Etouffee
 
¼ c. butter (½ a stick)
1 c. diced onion
1 c. diced green pepper
½ c. diced celery
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. peeled crawfish tails (2 ½ c.)
1 can cream of celery
½ c. chicken broth
½ tsp. hot pepper sauce
¼ c. fresh parsley
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. green pepper
1/8 tsp. red pepper
1 tsp. salt
3 c. cooked rice

I also like to throw about 1-1/2 cups of claws in there to give it a little extra flavor and to make it pretty, but don’t eat those unless you’re a fucking idiot. If you choke on one and call me, I will laugh at you and tell everybody what an idiot you are.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic to butter and cook until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients, except the rice. Simmer uncovered for 10-15 minutes. Serve over hot rice.

I can’t find where I got this recipe from, but it’s amazing and I would love to give credit to the person that came up with it. If you see a recipe with the same ingredients, please let me know, because that’s probably where I got it from.

Jen on the Brazos

For a few years now, I have been thinking of starting an online mag or blog about all the happenings in my area, but I know that something like that would take up a lot of time that I normally devote to kid’s sports or getting drunk. So, one night, I grabbed another beer and googled around for some live music or events that are in my area and I came across a website that was the answer I was looking for. It’s called Jen on the Brazos, and Jen posts weekly live music line ups in my area. Wow! Somebody knows exactly what lazy drunks like me need!!

Meet Jen:



ME and Jen on the Brazos at Belle’s Landing (Which actually is ON THE FUCKING BRAZOS! Check out this girl that just now put two and two together!)



Not only did I refer to her live music calendar to plan out my escapades right away, I also stalked her to a show that she talked about on her blog.  Stalking really does work, because a friendship was born that night and now she has asked me to guest blog about any haps I stumble upon.  What?!!  Fuck yes!! 

Of course, it all started with some emails back and forth that can be summed up like this:

Jen: Do you know anything about music or writing?

ME: No.

Jen: Sounds perfect!

So here is her first installment of ME on her weekly live music calendar:

Now be a honeybun and go comment on how much you love her new fabulous correspondent. ;)

I Only Thought I was a Failure

You probably don’t remember, but I challenged myself to read 100 books in 2010.  I only read 78 books and posted that I was a complete failure and I cried my way through a drawn out post about the awful books I put myself through trying to reach my goal.  Theeeeen I committed to read 100 books in 2011.  Well, I fucking didn’t, okay?  Don’t ask why.  I just didn’t.

I thought I would let you guess how many books I read and then give the worst book to the winner, but neither of you are going to get it right, so I’ll just tell you.

12. 

Yup. 

Twelve. 

That is 66 less books than in 2010.

I only thought I was a failure back then.

So there are no more reading commitments to save myself from further heartache.

See the 12 books I read in 2011 below….

R. I. P. Nikon

I used to have a badass camera (it was badass in it’s time, okay).  It’s dead now.  Crashed into some concrete in the middle of a hand off.  I’m still heartbroken over it.  Here is what it looked like…

 Anyway, to drown in my sorrow, I decided to post some of my favorite shots I took with that camera.  None of these have been altered in any way.

I take that back.  Some of them may have been cropped.  But the colors and textures haven’t been jacked with.
