Beer Maid? I think not.

So. Here's the deal. I detest beer. Like truly detest, cannot stand the taste/smell/after taste of any of it. It truly is just blech.

I mean yeah, back in college I played beer pong with everyone else and somehow managed to down Natty Light without convulsing (usually I was already drunk) and yeah I tried a Blue Moon here and a Pacifico there, but I would never do it again.

And as I've matured and developed a love for red wine and a tolerance to coffee I was hoping I'd adapt to beer as well. But alas, no. Not even freaking close. I've taken sips of "oh you just have to try this beer!" and "it's chocolatey, you've got to like it" and "just chug it and you'll like it" to no avail, rather just a disgusted look on my face and a bitter taste in my throat.

I just can't drink beer. I can't. It's gross.

And I just have to come to terms with the fact that I'll be the girl drinking wine (or a fruity drink of some sort) when everyone else is throwing back cold ones or sharing pitchers or enjoying a happy hour two for one of some sort.

But that's okay I suppose, I know I'm not alone out there right? Someone else has to detest beer as much as I do right?

happy thursday!

Katelin on the Red Carpet.

Dear Hollywood,

Today I would usually write about all your crazy antics and TV shows and cute babies and good looking guys, but I'm doing things a little differently today. Hollywood, your biggest day is in NINETEEN days and I think I should be there. More importantly I should be on the red carpet and at the show and yes, sign me up.

With that, I'm taking some time out of my regularly scheduled blogging to tell you why I should be on the red carpet at the Oscar's:

  • I would really like to meet Christian Bale. And I promise I wouldn't ask him to sing anything (despite my Newsies loving heart) and I would be really good at deciphering his thick accent and I would stay out of his way while at the same time totally conversing with him and it would be awesome.

  • Mila Kunis? Need I say more. Actually yes I do. If I got a picture with her I'd win wife of the year award for sure!

  • I've interviewed the cast of New Moon the American Idol top five from last season, Neon Trees and most recently Johnny Wright. So I've had practice. Also, I didn't swoon all over RPatz when I met him, now that is a feat all it's own.

  • I look good in a formal dress. I mean I did rock my wedding dress pretty well right?

  • I know the most random facts about celebrities and could easily make any interview interesting. I mean did you know that Sandra Bullock is allergic to horses or that Amy Adams was born in Italy or that Jeff Bridges is Buddhist and meditates before filming? I mean yes, I'm full of this ridiculous celebrity knowledge.

  • Hello. Have you read my blog? I love Hollywood. I live Hollywood.

  • Going to the Oscar's has always been one of my biggest dreams and is on my life list and what's better than helping a young woman's dreams come true? 

So Hollywood you see why I should be on the red carpet? I would be way better than Ryan or Joan or Mario or any of them? I'd be funny and spaztic and totally professional all at the same time!

So People, Extra, Access Hollywood, E! are you listening, I reallllllllly want to be on the red carpet at the Oscar's. Please? Pretty pretty please?

happy tuesday!

A "Super" Wild weekend.

A weekend oh a weekend. Full of wild animals and then some.

Friday: Worked from home so that I could finally retrieve my car (six freaking days later) and eventually I did. And so far, so good (fingers crossed, knock on wood, throw some salt over my shoulder). After working all day I picked up my cousin Kenji and we went to my brother's frosh/soph basketball game which was an experience in itself. Once Matt got home we all went out to dinner, had some drinks and came home to hang out some more. Twas loverly.

Saturday: Went to breakfast with Kenji while Matt prepared for Sunday. Once Matt got back we picked up my brothers and we all made our way to the zoo!! I was probably the most excited out of everyone because I adore the zoo.

some of my favorite guys!
(my most favoritest is behind the lens)

aw the black bear in the snow, precious.

checking out the giraffes with my brothers.

look at the bebe giraffe!

what a cute and sleepy lion.

and the elephants are hugging! my favorites.

the boys taking a quick break.

the cuteness, oh the cuteness.

Basically tons of cute animals and all sorts of funness with family, my kind of Saturday afternoon. After the zoo we all went to lunch and hung out for a bit before coming home and relaxing and catching up on life for a bit. Our evening plans consisted of trying a new sushi place with my sister and then heading to the Irish bar we found last weekend and played more shuffleboard, woo. All in all, another lovely evening with good times all around.

Sunday: Slept in a bit before walking the Rose Bowl with my mom (gotta prep for that half marathon in May people!). Came home to do some cleaning and Michael Jackson dancing (seriously, The Experience, have you played it yet!?!) before eventually heading over to Matt's dad's house for some Super Bowl BBQing and partying and wine drinking and cheese eating and just yes. Although I could care less about the game and the outcome, I loved hanging with Matt and our friends and all of the ridiculous things that were said were just all sorts of entertaining. Basically a wonderous way to end the weekend.

Oh also, remember that review blog I have? I actually posted something to it. A fabulous book that you should all read, so check it out.

And how was your weekend? Any wild animals or Superbowl mania?

happy monday!

Think. Thought. Thunk?

So it's been one of those days. Er weeks? Er couples of days? Whatever. Nonetheless here comes today's thoughts.

Things that are incredibly lame:
My car is still in the freaking shop. Monday turned into Wednesday which has hopefully turned into today being able to pick it up. I ended up having to get a rental on my own dime because Matt and my dad could only chauffeur me to work and back so many times. And ugh, why isn't teleportation an option yet???


Things that make me irrationally happy:
Skyping with my BFF Jen just so we could watch a bit of Toddler and Tiaras together and laugh about it.

Watching Pride and Prejudice (the Kiera Knightley version) and swooning like crazy at the sunrise scene, I mean can you top that?

Getting Showtime for free for six months and discovering that Dexter season 5 is on demand! (goodbye free time, time to catch up with my favorite serial killer!).

Playing Just Dance 2 (or the Michael Jackson Experience) game on the Wii with Matt. I mean seriously, just imagine my husband (seriously, he's my husband! and nope, not used to saying it yet, haha) dancing to Wham's "Wake Me Up (Before you Go)" or "Rock with You" and you'll laugh too. Best part is that Matt has beat me at almost every song (except "I Want you Back", I rule at that song!), apparently he's got more rhythm than me, haha.

So anything making you irrationally happy today?

happy thursday!

Hollywood Lite.

So. Hollywood. Stuff happens. And sometimes I talk about it. Today is a lite version because I just couldn't keep up. So I bring you my favoriteishness Hollywood biz. And go.
  • Starting the cuteness we have the oh so adorable mommy and son duo of Gwen Stefani and little Kingston riding a sled in Mammoth. I mean adorable right?

    the cute.

  • In other Hollywood news...Jason Mraz and Tristan Prettyman are engaged! (and have been since Decemeber and apparently I missed that one) however they aren't planning on getting married until everyone can, gotta admire that...and Diane Kruger also isn't planning on getting married again either (but her and Josh are so damn cute!)...also cute? if UP were made in live action and in the 60s...and Vanity Fair released their Hollywood issue pictures and basically guys should wear suits all the time, don't you agree?

    hello hawtness

  • In some favoriteness....

  • In Twilightness....
    Ashley Green is next month's Teen Vogue covergirl. I mean it's sort of ridiculous how she can be cute Alice, cute Ashley girl-next-door as well as hot Maxim wha bam. Seriously Ashley, how do you do it?

  • In movie news...
    The SAG awards were over the weekend and suprisingly I didn't really watch. And the two seconds I did watch, Christian Bale was accepting his speech and he didn't look like Jesus! Hooray (Hallelujah?). Anyhoo Jess did a great fashion post and Eggy just did a great run down of the show, so check them out.

  • In TV news...
    How I Met Your Mother. Well we're not meeting the mother any time soon it looks like, but Barney is getting a dad. I won't spoil it, but click on through because his dad is a pretty big name.

  • And lastly in WTFness we have Andy Hill who, although good intentioned, tries to sell cats like used cars and it's just WEIRD.

So anything big I missed?

happy wednesday!
