I turn 30 tomorrow. I’m super excited.

allen 22

As an ASD individual I feel the need to explain the above was (obviously) sarcasm.

I think Lily Allen sums up my feelings perfectly. By the way-don’t put huge expectations on your children when they are young just because they get good grades. That shit will haunt them forever.

Yours in loneliness/mediocrity,
Mary (my real name)

22
by Lily Allen and Greg Kurstin

When she was 22 the future looked bright,
But she’s nearly 30 now and she’s out every night,
I see that look in her face, she’s got that look in her eye,
She’s thinking how did I get here and wondering why,

It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over,
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say,
‘Til the man of her dreams comes along,
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder,
It seems so unlikely in this day and age,

She’s got an alright job but it’s not a career,
Whenever she thinks about it, it brings her to tears,
Cause all she wants is a boyfriend, she gets one night stands,
She’s thinking how did I get here, I’m doing all that I can,

It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over,
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say,
Til the man of her dreams comes along,
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder,
It seems so unlikely in this day and age,

It’s sad but it’s true how society says her life is already over,
There’s nothing to do and there’s nothing to say,
Til the man of her dreams comes along,
Picks her up and puts her over his shoulder,
It seems so unlikely in this day and age.

missemmamm & father with Henry Winkler at a 2011 Steel City Con

I’m super pumped as once again Hot Donna and myself will be attending Philly Wizard World this year. Last year we went and had a blast. I highly recommend it. The full programming schedule for this year’s convention can be found here on the official site.

This year’s convention runs Thursday, May 30th-Sunday, June 2nd. We will only be able to attend on Saturday and Sunday. However if I were able to be there all four days these are the top events that I would want to attend.

Thursday 05/30/2013
8:00–10:30PM Con Bro Chill Concert (Trocadero Theatre, 1003 Arch St., Philadelphia, PA 19107)-This really sounds like a lot of fun. It’s some sort of concert party featuring a group called Con Bro Chill (CBC), Connor Martin, SAMM, Ty Andre and Steve Felts. Note: This event is free to VIP badge holders with a separate paid general admission ticket available.

Friday 05/31/13
1:00-3:00PM Sci-Fi Speed Dating (Room 112)-It’s exactly what it sounds like, speed dating for science fiction fans. I’m not single but if I were I’d like to try out something like this. It seems interesting.
1:00–1:45PM Linda Blair Q&A (Room 113)-Yep, from The Exorcist
2:00–2:45PM Wanna Make Your Own Toy (Room 111)-Co-creator/Teddy Scares artist Joe DiDomenico will be giving tips on creating your own toy line and giving away some fun Teddy Scares items. Yes, I am a fan. I own a totally adorable murderous bear that I bought at a horror con a while back.
2:00-2:45PM Wibbly Wobbly Time: A Doctor Who Panel (Room 113)-Okay, I’m not a Whovian despite my man’s best efforts to convert me but I know that a lot of you are out there, so I’m sure you wouldn’t want to miss this.
3:00-3:45PM Kevin Sorbo Q&A (Room 108)-the Hercules/Poolboy star, sounds awesome
3:00-3:45PM Creating Characters That Readers Love To Hate (Room 111)-This may not be for everyone but I’m also a fiction writer so it sounds pretty helpful to me.
3:00-3:45PM Basic Costuming, FX Makeup & Armor-Like Creation (Room 113)-Cosplay fun.
4:00 -4:45PM Ray Park Q&A (Room 113)-He’s played Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode 1, Toad in X-Men and Snake Eyes in the G.I. Joe films. I’ve never met him but have heard great things about Ray Park.
5:00-5:45PM James Marsters Q&A (Room 113)-Ah, Spike of Buffy and Angel definitely gives great Q&A. I also recommend buying an autograph from him and chatting with him for a few minutes when he’s out on the floor this weekend. He’s very interesting/informative and of course, hot.
5:00-5:45PM Michael Rooker Q&A (Terrance Ballroom)-of The Walking Dead and Mallrats fame
6:00 -6:45PM Stan “The Man” Lee Q&A (Terrance Ballroom)

1:00 -1:45PM Henry Winkler Q&A (Room 113)-Yes, Fonzie from Happy Days. I’m a huge fan of his work on Childrens Hospital. I’ve met him at another con and he’s super nice. He really appreciates his fans.
1:30-2:15PM Charmed Reunion with Shannen Doherty, Holly-Marie Combs & Brian Krause (Terrance Ballroom)-I can’t even describe how excited we are about this. Hot Donna and I have seen every episode of Charmed too many times to count. The first real site I ever ran online was the Charmed site, Charmed Fashion Boutique. Krause has replied to me on twitter in the past. I’ve seen him interact with other fans on there often, as well. Yes, IRL Leo sounds just as awesome as on the show.

This post brought to you by Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.

I had so much fun trying Miracle-Gro last year that I had to share their new project with you.

Have you heard about The Gro Project  from  Miracle-Gro ? The Gro Project is a new way for gardeneers to share fun garden projects with one another. Awesome projects include the Toyarium, Ukulele Garden, Origami Garden, G.Y.O.B. and the Thrown Down.

The first project that I would like to try is the super neat looking Origami Garden.

Needed Supplies:

scissors and Glue
cardboard
a sturdy rope (such as polyprop rope)
metal ring for hanging
a small plant
Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix
Miracle-Gro Shake 'n Feed Plant Food
 

To make the holder you simply use the origami template to draw a polygon on a piece of cardboard and then cut it out. After that fold the cardboard as instructed and glue the overlapping pieces together. Follow the macrame instructions to knot the hanger while the glue on your holder is drying. Then fill a light pot with potting mix and add your plant to it. Once your origami planter is dry, place your potted plant in it. Easy, yet detailed instructions (with photos) for making both the holder and the outer macrame section are available on the Scotts' site.

It's always a great idea to visit Miracle-Gro online. It features a large library of articles and videos with expert gardening tips and online tools. You can utilize these to help solve common garden problems and find the right products to keep a healthy and beautiful garden.
 

I totally recommend following the Miracle-Gro Pinterest page. It's a great place for gardeners to come together and share gardening stories and tips with each other.

This post is for The Film Experience’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot series. This series concerns choosing a shot from a current film that has been chosen and sharing why it’s your favorite shot and/or in some way important to you.

The Talented Mr. Ripley was released in the late 90’s. While I don’t think that the 90’s are a particularly important time for movies in general it was important to me. It was in the mid 90’s, as a pre-teen, that I realized how much movies meant to me. Prior to that I wasn’t old enough to care about any movie that wasn’t just pure fun, a drama like this wouldn’t have appealed to me. Luckily I grew up.

The Talented Mr. Ripley is a long, yet fascinating film about sociopath Tom Ripley (Matt Damon) who is adept at studying and mimicking others. He uses this to his advantage when during happenstance he meets a rich father who hires him to bring his fun loving son who has traveled abroad back to the US. The man assumes that he went to school with his son due to what he is wearing and sensing an opportunity he doesn’t disabuse him of the notion.

He studies up on the son, Dickie Greenleaf’s (Jude Law), interests to figure out how to endear himself to him after arranging a faux meet cute. The only thing that I really find silly about the film is that Damon isn’t really considered one of the beautiful people (hence he wears glasses, ah!).

At any rate, there are many important moments in the movie. However Tom often seems to wear a blank expression during key moments, which are what I often go for. Despite this it was still difficult to choose a scene.

Matt Damon in The Talented Mr. Ripley

I chose the above scene as at this point in the movie he is going back and forth between playing Ripley and playing Dickie Greenleaf. To me it seems as if he’s looking in the mirror to see which he is playing at.

I also almost chose this last scene which is amazing but probably pretty obvious.

and just for fun…
