Judy Blume Super Saturday Smackdown

I like to laugh but I love things that stimulate the imagination. Therefore, the title just does it for me. Judy Blume has authored many books for  pre-teens girls to adult-women including Blubber, Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret and Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume. So to have her name and ‘Smackdown’ in the same phrase gave me a chuckle because of the bizarre picture in my head.

MMA: Gina Corano vs Judy Blume

By the way, Gina Corano is one of the best MMA [Mixed Martial Arts] fighters in the world. She kicks butt daily. So after the initial picture in my head, I definitely had to see what this was about. As I did, I just laughed at myself saying, ‘What am I thinking?’

I wondered how many other people had comical visions just from the title instead of the real Judy Blume Super Saturday Smackdown. I guess that was part of the plan so good job, marketing department.

There is a lesson in there: The mind can be a power entertainment tool

Anyway, check out Gina Corano:

Wanda Sykes 1/2: White House Correspondents’ Dinner

I like Wanda Sykes.  She personifies ‘real talk’. It’s good to have someone who isn’t scarred to say things most people are afraid to even admit they were thinking. Here she is at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (part 1 of 2)

And she’s funny too: “That’s not how you really practice abstinence..”

LOST

I love lost.

The show is so adddictive with constant suspense and cliff-hangers. I found out about it during the second season and I was told to rent the first season  on DVD and watch it like a movie. That was a BIG MISTAKE! I’ve lost many nights sleep because this show will literally keep you in suspense for what happens next.  You can watch most of the season (1-5) episodes online so you might want to check it out here. Excellent writing, great cast, beautiful scenery (hawaii) & great soundtrack.  Here is a funny skit that doesn’t really give you a clear picture of what’s going on but I believe the purpose of the show is to keep the viewers…  lost
