The Pros and Cons of Winter

Standard

Hey Everybody!! Sorry for the wait, I had a bit of…… Bloggers Block. Anyway, I’m back and I am going to list the Pros and Cons of Winter.

Pros:                                                                                  

Snow!! A wonderful Blanket that looks                                                  Like God dumped vanilla ice cream                                                    Over the world!

Christmas!! A joyful celebration of the birth of Jesus!

Black Friday!!  An awesome day where everything is on SALE!!

Not hot! no more sweating!!

Fashion!! I get to where scarves and sweaters and all of my favorite things!!!

Pretty! When the snow falls over the roof tops and on the trees it turns the whole city into a winter wonderland!!

Food! you get to make an amazing dinner for Thanksgiving and Christmas!!  YUM!! and delicious hot cocoa!

Curling up by the fireplace with a blanket and a book. 

No gardening and pulling weeds!!!

All of the evil mosquitoes DIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIE!

Movies!!! Everything on TV is Christmas and holiday themed!!! And I can watch all of my favorite Christmas movies!!!

Snow Days!!! You get a whole day off school just for snow!!! (unless, your homeschooled, then… not so much)

Cons:

snow. A cold wet nasty sludge. It’s freezing and likes to find places to hide, like in your shoes or the space inbetween your sleeve and your glove.

Black Friday. A dangerous place where people get trampled to death and you just wait for cyber Monday.

Cold. Cold Cold COLD!

You have to wear giant coats that make your hair do this:

Static hair, it’s that time of year!  http://www.hairstyle-blog.com/static.html

Food. For Thanksgiving and Christmas you have to slave over a stove. 

Shoveling snow. It’s no fun, and you usually get snow in your shoes.

EVERYTHING on TV is Christmas themed! after Thanksgiving you cant get away from it!!! You Have probably already seen Rudolf the red nose reindeer four times!!!

What you want your Winter Fashion to look like:

Perfect comfy outfit for winter.

What it actually looks like:

So cold!

I can’t move my arms

 

It lasts for what seems like FOREVER! I mean, Winter is like, November-March. That’s 4 months! that’s a 1/4 of the year. How come  Summer and Winter last forever, but fall only last for like 2 months. Not Fair!

Oh yeah did I mention it’s cold?

But I try not to complain, I mean, a lot of people have it a lot worse then me. I mean this could have happened….

Yikes!

or this

canadian problems

OMG! or this!!

WOW! Japan can't catch a break

these poor people! What if they needed toilet paper!?

Meanwhile In Canada

So if you think that it is freezing, and your just having a really bad day. Just look at these pictures and it wont seem as bad. Lol!

Maximum Ride Actresses

Standard

As some of you may know, James Patterson has a board on Pinterest for all of the possible actresses that readers thought would make a good Maximum Ride. So I thought I would post them up here with my opinion. If you have not read the maximum ride books, Max is described as tall and thin. See is Sarcastic, tough, and funny. She is only 14 and In the first few books she has blonde or dirty blonde hair. In the next few books he mentions brown and even red. But I always pictured her as a dirty blond. Here is some fan art of her….;.

MaxMaximum Ride: The Manga, Vol. 1 http://www.amazon.com/Maximum-Ride-The-Manga-Vol-1/dp/B00AFGJ09G%3FSubscriptionId%3D%26tag%3Dhpb4-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D1789%26creative%3D390957%26creativeASIN%3DB00AFGJ09G&rpid=xx1391716547/Maximum_Ride_The_Manga_Vol_1Max fan art.Maximum Ride; the ultimate ride!

Here are the possible actresses…..

 

A lot of readers said they'd love to see Chloë Grace Moretz play Maximum Ride. What do you think?

Here we have Chole Grace Moretz. She looks a lot like Max. She looks about 14. I think She would make a good Max. 🙂

Jennifer Lawrence was a big reader favorite when I asked who should play Maximum Ride. Do you agree?

Jennifer Lawrence! I love her! I love Jennifer Lawrence But she is already recognized as Katniss. Sorry Jen. 😦

A whole lot of readers said Dakota Fanning is the perfect choice for Maximum Ride. What do you think?

Dakota Fanning. She looks kind of like Max. She looks about the right age. Maybe 🙂

Many readers said they wanted Britt Robertson to play Maximum Ride. What do you think?

Do you think Emma Roberts would make a good Maximum Ride? A lot of readers picked her.

Emma Roberts. This is the picture James Patterson has on his board, but it is NOT a great picture of her. So here is a different one…

Hmmm…. I think  she is too old to play Max and she is already Nancy Drew. Sorry Emma.

Many readers said Rooney Mara would be the perfect Maximum Ride. Do you agree?

Rooney Mara. She doesn’t look like Max, and people already know her as the girl with the dragon tattoo. Sorry Rooney 😦

I was surprised how many readers said they'd love to see Angelina Jolie play Maximum Ride. What do you think?

Many readers picked Emily VanCamp as their ideal Maximum Ride actress. What do you think?

Emily  Vancamp. She is already  recognized from Revenge and is too old to play Max. Sorry Emily 😦

Readers suggested Abigail Breslin as a good fit for Maximum Ride. Is she Max material?

Abigail Breslin. She has been  in SO MANY movies!! Kit, The Ultimate Gift, My Sisters Keeper, Zombie Land, Little Miss Sunshine, and Enders Game. I just  don’t think she should play Max. She is recognized from so many other things.

I heard from a lot of readers that they'd love to see Emily Osment play Maximum Ride. Would she be your pick?.

Emma Stone. I do not think she looks like Max, and she is not young enough. Sorry Emma.

A whole lot of readers suggested Elle Fanning as their Maximum Ride of choice. Is she yours?

Maisie Williams. Nope. She not only dose not look like Max but she is already recognized from Game Of Thrones. Sorry Maisie 😦

Many readers said they'd love to see Kristen Stewart as Maximum Ride, and nearly as many said they'd want anyone besides her. Which is it?

Kristen Stewart. If anyone cares at all about Max, Kristen Stewart will NOT play her! NOOOOO! Who even suggested this?

A lot of readers thought Ashley Greene would make a perfect Maximum Ride. Agree or disagree?

Ashley Greene. No,too old and not Maxish enough and she is recognized from Twilight. But I wont hold that against her because she also would make a great Dr. Martinez.

Last one…

I heard from a lot of readers that Hailee Steinfeld would make an amazing Maximum Ride. What do you think?

Hailee Steinfeld. Not Max… but an AWESOME  ELLA!!! how perfect would she be?

I lied, one more….

Piera Forde to play Max. She is an awesome actress, a famous YouTuber, and playing Max is her dream. She just needs slightly darker hair.

Piera Forde. She is not on James Patterson’s board but everyone is saying she should play Max. She did some YouTube videos reenacting some scenes from Maximum Ride. It is her dream to play Max. I think she does a good job with Max.

So thats My opinion. But, whats yours?  Who do you think should play Maximum Ride. Although I think a lot of these actresses would make a good Max. I would prefer a totally unknown person. What do you think? Please comment with your opinion. Or if you want to see the board for yourself…

Movie Review

Standard

Today I will be reviewing Noah.

Noah (2014) A man is chosen by his world's creator to undertake a momentous mission before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the world.

I will be reviewing this movie on….

  1. Watch-ability
  2. Acting
  3. Plot
  4. Characters

1. Watch-ability: It was pretty interesting to watch. But most of it was quite boring. 2 stars

2. Acting: Considering all of the great actors that they had to play in this film, I am highly disappointed! I mean I dont even know how they got all of these actors together to do this! Most of them were overacting! 2 stars!

3. Plot: Starting with how it followed the Bible lets see…..

There were “Fallen Angels” a.k.a. Giant rock people! They look like evil versions of the giants from the never ending story!

Rockbiter - The Never Ending Story

Then they pick up this girl who cant have kids and Methuselah heals her with some berries!

Then there is a stowaway on the ark

And Ham meets a girl who gets killed and then he goes on the ark with NO WIFE! And then when they land he runs away to live by himself!

Shem’s wife gets pregnant on the ark and noah says they have to kill the babies because God oh excuse me…. I mean ” The creator” wants to wipe out the human race!

Now all of that aside…. It wasn’t even a good movie! It was like…..weird, depressing, boring! I dont even know! It was just soooo awful I am trying to block it from my memory!

no stars!

4. Characters: Most of them were whiny and I didn’t like them! 1 star!

All in all this was a horrid movie! NO ONE should burden themselves with seeing it!
